Grand Daddy Purple
One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the streets, in museums, in movies, books and television. Our second amazing strain art piece from Ron is the straight gangsta; Grand Daddy Purple.
English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election.
Other characters carousing through English’s art, in paintings, billboards, and sculpture include three-eyed rabbits, udderly delicious cowgirls and grinning skulls, blending stunning visuals with the bitingly humorous undertones of America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast.
Grand Daddy 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.
From San Francisco down to Los Angeles, Grand Daddy Purple is one of the most sought after Indica strains due to it’s Hollywood looks and classic Indica effects.
It's potent psychoactive 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, Grand Daddy Purple is typically pulled off the shelf to treat pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss and muscle spasms.
Califari was thrilled to get to work with the legendary Ron English on a legendary strain that needs no introduction, but we believed it needed the touch of Ron English to really make it come to light in the 2D realm! This unique rendition of GDP is one piece of art that may actually leave you with a contact high.
