This week we are looking at Purple Punch. This indica cross of Granddaddy Purple and Larry OG is a must for those seeking fruity flavours and relaxation.
Join us as we delve a little deeper into this cannabis strain…
I first tried Purple Punch about a year ago. I am a fan of any purple strains generally, mainly due to aesthetic beauty, but I also find they tend to taste good. I was impressed when I first tried this one, and I was still impressed when I tried this very batch a couple of months ago.
However it was one of those strains which for some reason didn’t make it into the review, and I found myself smoking the last bowl and thinking “why didn’t I save a bit?” without really knowing why. Fortunately my oversight was not the end of this story – I was lucky enough to pick up some more of the same Purple Punch when visiting a friend recently, and thankfully so, because this time I wasn’t missing my chance to add it to our reviews list!
Nice bud structure and moderately dense buds, but this sample compresses when squeezed. Vibrant pistils and lots of trichomes give this a high-end feel.
Lots of colours – very strong complexity, with an OK trim job, but some leaf bases remaining.
Oh, and the purple! Particularly visible inside the buds, nice purple hue and vibrant purple parts (see below):
Purple Punch smells quite similar to Granddaddy Purple, falling much more on this side than the gas/jet fuel I was expecting from Larry OG.
For example, this smells purple – like the GDP – ie. like grapes and fruity and berry sweetness.
Breaking open the bud and grinding up a sample gives rise to more of the same.Also notable slight Mother of Berries-like aroma from Purple Punch.
Smoking this gives a clean expression of the berry grape flavour. Nice smoking experience again reminiscent of purple mother of berries (purple buckeye x moab)
Lovely vape taste, more of the same but tastes better than smoking.
This is a very strong indica strain. Afternoon/evening weed – good for post-dinner and pre-relaxation.
Hits strong and hard, leading with sleepy and relaxed effects.
Love the Purple Punch – great genetics, just don’t smoke this one first thing if you’ve got a lot to do!
