Purple Punch strain (aka Mimosa weed, Grape Punch, Blueberry Muffins strain, Purple Sticky Punch, OG Purp, Purple Punch 2.0)
It’s essential to point out that the Purple Punch weed strain is not for beginners even though it offers numerous benefits, which we’ll cover below.
But first, here’s a summary of the Purple Punch strain info:
Purple Punch strain description
The Purple Punch is an indica-dominant hybrid. The plant’s genetic make-up comes from two heavy indica strains.
The first one is Granddaddy Purple (aka Grand Daddy Purps), renowned among smokers for its pain-relieving effects. The other strain is the uplifting hybrid, Larry OG. This potent union resulted in giving the Purple Punch Strain its intense sedative qualities.
The plant is completely covered with crystal trichomes that are enhanced by its big, dense purple buds.
Purple Punch flavours & effects
Besides its attractive appearance, the Purple Punch emits a subtle earthy aroma combined with a scent of berries, grapes, and pineapple. It’s also said that it smells like Kool-Aid.
The Purple Punch is ideal when you’ve had a stressful day and want to unwind and relax. It’s best to be consumed after dinner. Be aware that it offers a powerful punch.
Some of the Purple Punch strain effects include deep relaxation and feelings of joy and euphoria. You’ll also block out stress, anxiety, and depression, find relief from aches and enjoy a deep, rejuvenating slumber.
After smoking, you’ll go through a feeling of joy, followed by a positive mental stage where ideas begin to flow freely. The creativity phase may not last very long, as once the physical effects take hold, you’ll end up on the couch.
A long, peaceful sleep follows after an hour, which is why the best time to try Purple Punch is a short while before your bedtime.
Purple Punch strain grow info
For those of you with a bit of experience, growing Purple Punch can be quick and easy. The plant is sturdy enough to survive the harsh Afghan landscapes, and its short, dense stature helps it thrive even in tight, vertical spaces.
Provided that, there’s no need to support the plant’s robust branches as they’re able to maintain a firm grip on its protruding colas. All you have to do is keep trimming and provide some low-stress training. These actions will prevent moisture build-up and allow the lower flowering levels easier access to light and air.
If you don’t want the hassle of weeding out the male sprouts, our feminized seeds are the answer. All plants are guaranteed to mature into fertile mothers, which means you’ll get generous Purple Punch strain yields.
The bright green nugs produce wispy white pistils which then become burnt orange hairs as the plant reaches full maturity. The dense buds also get a shimmering, alabaster appearance due to the rich coat of resin. To add more beauty to the plant, expose it to cold night temperatures.
Purple Punch strain yield
The Purple Punch strain can provide up to 1.8 ounces of buds per square foot when cultivated indoors. You’ll get those yields after a flowering time of 7-9 weeks under optimal growing conditions.
We recommend the Sea of Green (SOG) setup if growing in small areas. Keep the RH level between 40-50% and the temperature at around 70-80°F to keep the plant comfortable.
For those who want to grow the Purple Punch outdoors, be sure to choose a spot that gets plenty of sunlight and warmth. It’s possible to achieve a yield of up to 21 ounces per plant.
As a matter of fact, you can grow the plant in summer if you live in cold regions, but you’ll get a lower yield.
Harvesting is usually around the end of September and early October in the northern hemisphere.
Purple Punch strain genetics
Is Purple Punch indica or sativa? As shown above, it’s an indica-dominant hybrid, born from the union of Granddaddy Purple and Larry OG.
