Purple Punch is known for its frosty buds, mouth-watering sweet taste, and extraordinary THC content (25%+). Effects of this strain are balanced, with a pleasant cerebral high that fizzles down to a sense of physical relaxation. Purple Punch will grow perfectly well indoors, as long as you do some basic work.
Heritage & Genetics: Purple Punch is an almost purely indica mix of the classic Larry OG x Grandaddy Purple strains. It was first introduced in NorCal by Supernova Gardens and brought to fame by one breeder named “The Village”. The ancestry of Purple Punch is fascinating, as it includes legends such as OG Kush, Northern Lights, and some original Skunk. The THC content is usually around 25%.
Flavor & Aroma: Purple Punch is famous for its amazing taste which makes it a great choice for people who like to vape/smoke sweet strains. The nugs have an overpowering earthy smell, with hints of berries and grape when broken open. On the inhale you will immediately get a sweet, fruity taste that will give you smooth hints of citrus on the exhale.
Effect: As an indica-dominant with a THC content that constantly hovers around 22-25%, Purple Punch gives the consumer a balanced high. Consumers of this strain will initially feel a cerebral high that will gradually expand into a mild sedative bodily effect. Ideal for indoor social gatherings, Purple Punch is the perfect strain to treat your guests during or after dinner.
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: The strong indica heritage of Purple Punch makes it very resilient, yet some care is still needed for it to flourish. Indoor growers should make sure that this Californian strain gets enough light intake and relatively high humidity. Likewise, outdoor growers will see the best results in Mediterranean climates. You will need to be well prepared to provide the best environment for Purple Punch, as you’ll need reliable lights and ventilation. It will respond great to training (especially SCROG) and will be ready for harvest within 8 weeks. Flowers are especially frosty and robust, with an amazing sweet smell.
