Purple Punch is a sedating hybrid strain of Granddaddy Purple and Larry OG. Its indica-leaning effects are sure to please heavy smokers who like the occasional sweet treat, reminding them of grape candy, blueberry muffins, and tart Kool-Aid. This strain's potency makes it best suited for after-dinner use and will provide a unique experience that can help with chronic pain, muscle spasms, or insomnia.
Purple Punch strains THC levels to 17-24%, causing users to feel a powerful body high first and foremost. It can help fight depression, stress, anxiety, and PTSD by releasing feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin in the brain. While Purple Punch is not considered a daytime strain, its euphoric physical effects can get you moving after it builds up enough intensity.
Its negative effect includes paranoia and dizziness. The high lasts for hours, but it gradually wears off, making it a suitable strain for watching movies or listening to music. This bud is more rare than its indica-dominant parentage would suggest, and the THC levels are strongest in the leaves of Purple Punch.
Purple Punch grows best in cooler temperatures. It can be cultivated indoors if growers provide enough light and take good care of their plants during flowering time. Growing this strain outdoors is not recommended, as it does not produce THC levels strong enough to smoke. Its flowering time is relatively short, about seven to eight weeks.
Indoor growers can expect the same timeframe of just over a month. This strain flowers with a green tint when grown in large quantities, rather than an all-over purple color.
