I was lucky enough to win an Illuminent giveaway and able to experience Illuminent’s Grand Daddy Purple before it was released. It is absolutely fantastic and did not disappoint. I am currently (as of writing this article ) vaping Granddaddy Purple (1000mg) as part of my Daily CBD regimen.
Granddaddy Purple is created using high-quality whole plant full spectrum CBD oils with Granddaddy Purple Cannabis derived terpenes.
My CBD Regimen Usage
I use Granddaddy Purple Vape throughout the day, I typically will take 2-3 pulls with my morning coffee. Since vaping CBD absorbs faster (around 2-3 minutes) than taking it sublingually (10-15minutes) so it gets ahead of my morning tincture. Then I will typically use it throughout the day as needed.
It generally takes about 2-3 minutes to feel the effects and I find it lasts for two 2-3 hours. Some have reported that it makes them sleepy, however I do not have that experience so I’m able to use it throughout the day. Although the relaxing and calming effect does not make me tired, I do find it helps my sleep based on nights that I vape before bed versus nights that I don't.
My Vape only CBD Regimen:
If I run out of my Tincture I will switch my CBD Regimen to 2-4 pulls in the morning, 2-3 pulls mid-day, 2-3 pulls evening.
An Indica strain known for promoting relaxation and calming effects.
