Flavour, potency, and beauty. Purple Punch has it all for indica lovers looking to cultivate something a little different. Come harvest, you'll be rewarded with extremely potent and slightly purple flowers loaded with delicious tastes.

Purple Punch was bred to quench the thirst of indica lovers. The breeders behind this strain aimed to infuse the indica purity of parent strain Granddaddy Purple with the more stimulating sativa genetics of hybrid Larry OG. This crossing was an immense success, culminating in an indica-dominant strain loaded with THC and a tasty array of aromatic terpenes.

PURPLE PUNCH GROWING TRAITS

This indica-dominant genetic profile influences Purple Punch to maintain a relatively small and stocky size throughout the grow cycle. This makes her suitable for indoor and outdoor growing, where she can perform extremely well in limited space. This size also makes her appeal to cultivators looking for plants that don’t surge to great, attention-grabbing heights. She’s a great variety when looking to keep your operation low-key.

EFFECTS AND CANNABINOID LEVELS OF PURPLE PUNCH

EFFECTS AND CANNABINOID LEVELS OF PURPLE PUNCH

As well as being bred for her indica-dominant properties, another huge focus when working on Purple Punch was to encourage the highest levels of THC achievable. After some vigorous breeding and laboratory analysis, these dense nuggets have been found to possess THC levels clocking it at around 25%. Such an astronomical level of the psychotropic molecule contributes to a high that sets in instantly and lingers for hours.

Seconds after inhaling from the end of a joint or blunt, users will feel a heavy yet pleasant sensation sweep across the body. This effect makes the muscles relax, melting away any tension that might be causing aches and pains. This sensation also migrates up toward the head where it diffuses tension in the jaw and makes the eyelids feel heavy.

The indica aspects of this strain make Purple Punch an enjoyable and sedating smoke. Hitting a bong bowl loaded with these flowers immediately before bed will slow down erratic thoughts, dissolve stress and worry, and make for a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating sleep.

But Purple Punch doesn’t only produce indica effects. Her genetic makeup consists of 40% sativa genetics, which adds a touch of stimulation to the high. This turns what would otherwise be an overwhelmingly sedative high into one accented by a motivating and euphoric effect. This makes Purple Punch possible to smoke during the day, or even as a wake-and-bake candidate for seasoned smokers that can handle high levels of THC in the morning.

WHO IS PURPLE PUNCH FOR?

WHO IS PURPLE PUNCH FOR?

Purple Punch is ultimately a strain for everyone, but it will appeal to some types of smokers much more than others. She’s certainly a superb recreational variety for those who favour more sleepy and relaxing effects. However, these are complemented and buffered by euphoric and uplifting sensations.

A THC level of 25% definitely places Purple Punch on the more potent end of the spectrum. Novice smokers may have a hard time consuming this strain and could easily get overwhelmed. Purple Punch is better suited to more experienced smokers with an established tolerance.

Purple Punch is also a great medicinal strain. Her sedating, soothing, and calming high is great for stress, pain, low mood, sleeping issues, and aches and pains.

She’s also a quintessential connoisseur strain. Many cannabis users view psychoactivity as only a portion of the herbal experience. Flavour and aroma play a massive part for these people, and sampling a few buds of this strain is like swigging on a fine wine, only with much more flavour!
