When we found a particularly potent example of the original Ken Estes GDP, we knew that we were already on to a winner. Using this as a mother, it was crossed with pollen harvested from one of the finest, yet underrated, strains we have ever known – Elephant Bud. From this the mighty colossus was born. From the very start, the first generation every plant that was produced was an absolute behemoth. In 4 rounds of stabilization we had a consistent cross that literally blew us away in terms of sheer size and beauty.
This lovely lady is strong; consistently producing 21-22% THC in thick layers upon layers of trichomes that cover every square inch of bud space as well as many of the upper shade leaves. But she doesn’t stop there, the taste and aroma are one of the key features thanks to her outstanding lineage. Sweet fruity flavors are beautifully complimented with slightly spicy haze undertones in a perfect blend that will have your mouth watering from the get go.
A slightly sativa leaning hybrid, Colossal Purps, grows in a classic multi branched shape stretching both up and out. When grown outdoors it can often reach 3m tall and will be almost as wide so make sure she has plenty of space to fulfil her true potential. Because of the input from the Elephant bud, the main colas (and yes there will be a lot of them) will dominate the structure, forming huge dense buds and they will need support in the final stages of development. Indoors, it is definitely important to allow for sideways growth and training will also be key to keep it under 6ft.
Because of its sativa leaning traits and elevated levels of THCA, this lovely lady will create a real feeling of uplifting euphoria, mentally stimulating and active. This means that it is great for mood enhancement and energy so night time use is not recommended unless it’s party time!
