There’s so much to love about the Grandaddy Purple strain in general. But what if it was more concentrated and potent? I had the chance to get my hands on a gram of Grandaddy Purple Wax Dabs this week, so get to know the effects and flavors of these concentrates in our Grandaddy Purple wax review.

Grandaddy Purple Wax Scents, Flavors and Effects
Much like the actual flower itself, Grandaddy Purple wax smells delicate and floral on the nose with a rich pungent earthiness and a sweet grape and berry aroma. But that’s not where it ends. These dabs offer some serious flavor when they’re vaporized in a dab rig. When you take a low temp dab of this wax, you’ll notice almost every flavor you can detect with your nose and then some. The flavor is very berry forward and offers a bright refreshing sweetness. Unlike the actual bud, there is no earthiness, but you will detect a pungent floral flavor that lingers long after you exhale.
As a concentrate, the effects of the grandaddy purple wax take hold instantly and with force. It offers superior potency compared to its flower form and will leave you feeling extremely euphoric and high in a dreamlike stupor. Next, the body high kicks in leaving you feeling supremely relaxed, floaty and tingly. There’s a good chance that even a small dab of this wax will put you on the couch or help you drift off to a peaceful sleep with ease.
Medicinal Uses of Grandaddy Purple Wax Dabs
If you’re reaching for concentrates in the first place, odds are you need a more potent dose of THC than flower is able to provide. Luckily Grandaddy Purple is one of the most promising concentrates out there for its potentially therapeutic effects. Checking in around 75% THC and rich in terpenes like Myrcene, Pinene, and b-Caryophyllene, these dabs pack a therapeutic punch. Many medical patients reach for concentrated GDP when they need to combat aches and pains, headaches, nausea, a lack of appetite, or muscle spasms. However. Grandaddy Purple’s blissful and euphoric effects may also be helpful against stress, depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
At the end of the day, Grandaddy Purple Wax is a great choice if you’re looking for a concentrate that checks all the boxes: flavor, potency, effects, and medicinal properties. The next time you see it at your favorite dispensary, be sure to give it a try.
