Overall, GDP is a weighty, high gravity indica that is capable of producing a couch-locking sensation. However, with this sedation comes lofty relief from joint pain, muscle tightness, and migraines. There is high concentrates of Cannabigerol or CBG present in Granddaddy Purple, which is largely responsible for the strain’s anti-inflammatory effects. It is also known to work against the paranoia of THC and has anxiolytic properties. Those suffering for gastrointestinal issues will appreciate its ability to settle nausea and stimulate the appetite. Finally, due to its locking nature, Granddaddy Purple is most useful in the evening hours when it can be used to moderate your pain and help relieve insomnia without inherently slowing you down.
