The exact origins of this strain are unclear, but Apothecary Genetics (the most common source of the strain over the last 10 years) claims it to be Mendo Purps x Afghani x Skunk #1. However, there is much debate if Mendo purps or GDP is the mother plant. Given the genetics it is possible that the two are sister plants, as Big Bud (rumored father to GDP) is a Skunk #1/Afgani cross.There are a variety of Purple strains that share similar qualities, and many believe them to be different expressions of the same genetics, while others see some additional Sativa influence in the Ape that doesn’t exist in the GDP or Mendo Purps.
