Bred in the early 2000’s by cannabis crusader, Ken Estes, GDP is a mix of two heavily potent indica strains, Purple Urkle and Big Bud. The legendary GDP, or Grand Daddy Purple, is consistently sought by both recreational enthusiasts, and patients who often rely on GDP for its powerful therapeutic benefits.
Pressed between a thin piece of folded parchment paper, the rosin is colored a translucent light golden tan. It’s paper thin and the half gram is spread over an area of at least one-and-a-half square inches. With such a wide distribution, it’s easy to get perfect dabs, big or small, sized to the individual’s preference.
GDP has a reputation for being superior medicinal strain, offering appetite stimulation as well as widely reported relief from insomnia. The large percentage of terpenes may help with inflammation along with aiding in memory, a surprising and rare side-effect said to come from some cannabis strains.
Lemon and pine are loud and prominent, delivering a candy sweet scent that’s distinct but difficult to nail down. Easily confused with Sour Diesel or a Headband extract, there are no solvents used in rosin production and the finished product is pure essential oil, and its delicious fragrance reflects this with aromatherapeutic benefits coming largely from alpha-pinene and limonene.
A top notch taste introduces this rosin as the palate’s new best friend. Right away, notes of lemon zest are noticeable, even to those nearby who aren’t partaking in the festivities. Undertones of fresh herb and sandalwood round out the refreshing flavor profile, making for one of the tastiest extracts in the therapeutic cannabis marketplace.
This all-natural concentrate is smoother than most with absolutely no burn on the inhale. It comes on slowly, with a euphoric relaxation settling in after about fifteen minutes. Utterly calming with pronounced sedative properties, the psychoactive component to the GDP experience feels light and playful, making this a widely therapeutic rosin that’s well balanced.
