Ask the budtender to smell Grand Daddy Purple you should be overwhelmed with a sweet or citrus scent with earthy tones. If your nose likes the cannabis scent you will know.

Buying cannabis is fun and smoking it is even more fun. But what turns many off from cannabis is the smell that lingers after. Although many people don’t mind it there are a few places you don’t want the lingering cannabis scent to follow you to. And for those occasions we suggest you purchase a vape pen.


Bloom Brand most recognizable by their red logo is a popular brand in California. On their website you can search your address to find the nearest place you can purchase it at. They have a total of 10 high quality vape cartridges and of course on that list is GDP.

Merry Jane is a great cannabis website. From news articles to reviews Merry Jane covers just about everything cannabis on the site. Their review of Grand Daddy Purple is spot on, read a piece below.

“A cross between indicas Big Bud and Urkle, Grand Daddy Purple has a delicious sweet grape flavor. The intense effects of GDP completely relax the body and the mind. Not a completely anti-social strain, Grand Daddy Purple encourages happiness but will slow you down enough that you won’t want to engage in any friendly debates until you wait for your “High 2 Come Down.” “

The Stoner Mom is not your average mom. Of Course she is smart, kind and loving. But she also enjoys using cannabis. Her website is full of useful and fun information.  She also wrote a review about GDP. This is what she had to say...

“Be warned, this is a creeper of a strain. It’s literally packed with myrcene– that terpene that amplifies the sedating effects of marijuana. Its high starts euphoric and bright, then settles into a powerful, full-body high, making you ultra relaxed and somewhat drowsy.”


After smoking some Grand Daddy Purple it is likely that you won’t want to do much of anything. If this is the case, don’t worry. Roll yourself another GDP joint and get comfortable on the couch. If you have any video streaming services keep an eye out for these movies.


This cute movie is quite and soothing. Drift along in space with WALL-E and Eve.


This movie is great for both adults and children. It’s the story of innocent young love. If anything it is something pleasant to fall asleep to.


A classic, of course. Forrest Gump is both extremely entertaining and boring. You might be into watching this movie but after a few extra hits of GDP your eyelids will begin to seal shut.

Finding a movie you want to watch might be tough but it doesn’t matter. The good thing about GDP is that anything will seem great and soothing. All you need is GDP.
