Granddaddy Purple by Ken Estes

「 STRAIN REVIEW 」

SEE/SMELL/SMOKE | 9.2/10
There is no need to label these jars, because Ken's award winning Granddaddy Purple speaks for itself once again. The smell has a certain weight to it that lets you know its about to lock you to the couch. The deep purple on the leaves and buds compliment the layer of overcrowded Tricomes. This is one of the best strains out there if you are going for the 'bag appeal'. The fruity taste and smell are quite pungent and is very distinctive when compared to other buds from its lineage. With a very harsh smell you will be surprised at how smooth this strain takes to being inhaled. All smoke tests are done through a Bong & bowl.

HIGH | 9.5/10
One of the most potent highs I'v experienced in a long time. This nighttime strain is perfect for those fighting against insomnia or a pain related illness.
With fast hitting body euphoria and a severe couch-lock feel that is unparalleled be sure to take care of your obligations before smoking this one! This strain is not to be used as a Daily smoker unless dealing with chronic pain or something of the sort, because mentally it dulls you very significantly.

「 GROW REVIEW 」

BUDS/YIELD | 8/10
In terms of Yield this cycle it was above final expectations, but below what was expected from germination. This was due to many factors. Some of those factors are a decrease in plant count and a mutated plant. I am extremely pleased with the bud quality of these genetics and the yield was quite acceptable.

GROWTH | 8/10
The growth of this Ken Estes GDP was explosive and in bursts. It was clear that aeration around bud sites and roots played a primary factor this in grow. The smell came very early in the growth while the purple phenotypes didn't display until late

ROOTS | 7.5/10
The roots reacted a lot with the environment at every step. They really enjoy temperatures to stay steady without much difference between reservoir swaps. Without the constant use of Hydroguard root rot was developed on a single plant and a slow turnaround rate impacted her final yield. Overall the roots did fine in a DWC environment, however constant use of Hydrogaurd is recommended.

I am very please with the results of this grow and look forward to doing this strain again sometimes in the future!
There are Some major things I would do differently a second time around, but nothing too critical.

Please feel free to leave behind any suggestions or things you would like to see done in a future diary of mine! Anything from strains to lights and setup, just feel free to ask!
This strain was a beauty to grow and I am very pleased with the results. I am doing a Blackberry by Fastbuds in my next diary, but after that I'm open so feel free to suggest a strain. I am looking for more colorful strains like this one :sunglasses:

Wow, amazing job. When you say you used trimmings for hash, was there buds in there? How much weight would you say was in the bags. How much dry ice did you use? 1lb or 5lb bags? I'm asking cause I failed my first has attempt with 1lb bags and just ice and water, I think I got only 2 grams off over an ounce of popcorn. Was your trim dried out, ground up or ?

@HighTV, oh I gotcha on the process. And the bag size, I got it.

HighTV

@BeefWellingtons, Ah sorry I was misunderstanding the question. To be clear, I use a 5 gallon bucket with a 5 gallon bubble bag placed over-top then I flip the bucket over and shake the keif out.

I do plan on making longer form videos on my Youtube channel including a how to on the Dry Ice hash. So far I just have some shorter videos on it, but once I get a quality microphone ill be able to upload longer form tutorials and explain things for the channel.

@HighTV, lol, I meant 1 gallon or 5 gallon. (I have the 1 gallon)..gotcha. Wow, leaf trim huh. That's awesome, what a save from something that people used to toss out. I've never seen that much kief get processed out of a bag, that was impressive! I was like, holy crap, that guy needs a bulldozer! Thanks for the quick update btw. And your videos rock out! You should do a YouTube video of the kief making...I did check, lol. You are an inspiration bro.

Very nice work, bro. What a ton of beautiful looking kief you have produced. You must be a friend of Frenchy Canoli. ;-) Congrats.

@HighTV, I have been wanting to try it. Bubblebags get exhausting! For sure gonna see if I can get it locally if I can then will run some tomorrow. For sure.

@H_SOLO, After a long trimming session I prefer Dry Ice because Its quick and simple. The process takes about 30 mins and is fairly cheap!

Dry ice kief looks like the way to go. Going to check it out. Thanks, HT.
Do you have a preferred method?

@Scientistofthedank2003, Hes the creator of the original GDP strain. His genetics can be found around mid California. I was fortunate enough to get some cuts of this beauty at a local dispensary in Sacramento. :sunglasses:

@VanWilder, I feel like the purple was unstoppable I didn't take the temperatures to low or anything it was consistently around 78-82. Just really good genetics by Ken Estes! :yum:
