What is Granddaddy Purple?
Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple (or GDP) is a famous indica cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This California staple inherits a complex grape and berry aroma from its Purple Urkle parent, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure. GDP flowers bloom in shades of deep purple, a contrastive backdrop for its snow-like dusting of white crystal resin.

Its potent effects are clearly detectable in both mind and body, delivering a fusion of cerebral euphoria and physical relaxation. While your thoughts may float in a dreamy buzz, your body is more likely to find itself fixed in one spot for the duration of GDP’s effects. Like most heavy indica varieties, Granddaddy Purple is typically pulled off the shelf for consumers looking to combat pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss, and muscle spasms.

I have been smoking that stuff for well over 50 years! (can now say that as its legal in Washington). Amongst other things doing that before going to bed tends to cut my trips to the bathroom by over half (only 1 or 2 at most).

I am also NOT a candidate for Alzheimers I do, however, have memory problems. But there are some workarounds that tend to work. The best is keeping a voice recorder near and everytime I have a thought to research I record it. It only takes a couple of words and that gets the thought. I think the reason for that is that my mind takes longer to store stuff. In any case that is not going away real quick so the choice is to live with it or leave, I have no plans to leave real soon <G>

And I'm glad to see my speculations were wrong...;)

Worked as advertised, most definitely. I slept like a baby...a big ole snoring happy baby, apparently.

I'm just 67 and when I have an idea I have to go immediately to the computer and look it up or write it down, or I will forget it. Just comes with the territory, so to speak. Getting old is better than the alternative, for now.

A couple of tokes before bed puts me right to sleep and prevents leg cramps. I don't smoke enough to feel it in the morning.

Yep, its a real help for sleep.

Talking about strains and what they do is an amusement. Here are a couple of sites that sell seeds. There are now, literally, hundreds of strains and more coming every day. I used to buy seeds. But they still contact me now and then. The best way to decide is to get the thc and cbd percentages of the given strain. In theory cbd is healthy and thc warps the mind (well, kinda?). The percentages, these days, of thc is kinda insane.

Seed prices, incidentally, are starting to fall a bit.

Apparently, once you find a strain you like, it is very easy to take cuttings and clone it forever. You just keep a "mother plant" inside under 18 hours per day lights, in a small pot, with a meager diet of nutrients. Growers keep these mothers for years, and replace them anytime they like with a new clone.

So it may just be for amusement to keep buying new strain seeds. Strains like Northern Lights have been around for decades and have very high THC levels if you grow them right. Or you can grow low THC, high CBD strains if that's what you need.

One advantage of cloning is if you start with a female, all descendants will be female.

I vape cannabis oil, I find the dose is easier to control and I never burn myself with a lighter anymore.
I'm mixing cherry pie and green crack tonight. That's my favorite buzz.
A hybrid strain and a sativa strain. I kind of avoid pure indica strains.
If I could only have one strain I think it might be cherry pie. It's a blend of Durban poison which is a sativa favorite and grandaddy purps which laid Jefferey low.
Florida medical is just getting underway now after a few glitches and court battles, but the black market is still considerably cheaper.

I smoke this sh*t because I like to get high. Any other benefits it might have are purely coincidental.

It's funny that weed is starting to be seen by some young people as an old folks' drug. Keeps Gramps happy in his assisted living place. I seem to recall lots of getting high back in the 60's and 70's and having a great time with some female partners in smoke.

My poor old lungs cannot handle much in the way of pot smoke, so like you, I also prefer to use a magical vape pen. Karen bought a Snoop Dogg version which is apparently very sophisticated.
As you might imagine, anything Snoop Dogg approves of is going to do the job wonderfully.

But it's not oil, you just stuff a small bud or manicured bits of bud into the chamber, pop the top on it, let it heat up and take a nice long pull off it once the meter hits the right temperature.

Boy howdy, you get a helluva good result with almost no smoke whatsoever! I only need one good pull off of it and I am good for the entire evening!

It's about twice the length of an AA battery and about 1.5 inches in diameter. Weighs about eight ounces, USB rechargeable battery.
