Cherry Punch by Guru Seeds is an indica-dominant strain that can be easily cultivated both outdoors and indoors. Even though it has a fairly high THC content, this strain has been made popular for its mild effects.
Heritage & Genetics: Cherry Punch is the product of a complicated series of breeding cycles. Originally developed by Symbiotic Genetics in California, it is a cross between the Cherry AK-47 and Purple Punch F2 strains. Although Purple Punch is relatively known to the cannabis world, Cherry AK-47 is an exciting mix between Colombian, Mexican, Thai and Afghani landraces.
Flavor & Aroma: The smell of this strain is quite fruity and floral, fully justifying the name Cherry Punch. However, vaping the bud will quickly bring out a characteristic earthy taste, with intense skunky undertones. On the exhale, the vapor leaves a hash-like aftertaste in the mouth.
Effect: The effects of Cherry Punch are not extreme. A textbook daytime strain, Cherry Punch will likely put you in a state of mental alertness. You will feel more focused and productive after consuming this strain, so it makes a great stimulant for creative activities.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: This strain can grow both indoors and outdoors, and it will be ready for harvest within 10 weeks. Yields are above average, and the buds are delightfully green and chunky.
