The Purple Punch strain is one of the most sought-after strains out there. However, it is a mysterious strain that comes with its own characteristics. Stick around, and we will help you understand this amazing strain up close and personal. 

Purple Punch: Overview & Genetics

Ever tried cannabis from the Purple family? Well, now is your chance to do so. The purple family is the most premium family of cannabis. It has given us some of the most iconic strains like the Purple Kush, Purple Haze, etc.

Genetically speaking, the origin of the strain is a little dubious. Cannabis scientists do not have a clear idea of the actual origin. But it is a hybrid strain that leans heavily on the indica side of things. The total THC content of the strain can go as high as 24%. The first breeder who made this strain is none other than the Supernova Gardens, a Hawaiian breeder. Later on, several other grow houses came up with their own variation of the strain. 

The general parentage of the strain is unknown, but it is believed that the strain is a cross between the famous Granddaddy Purple and the Larry OG strains. Grandaddy Purple, or the Granddaddy Purps, is an indica-diminant strain with a 20-27% THC range. It is believed to be one of the oldest strains in existence. Larry OG, on the other hand, is an Indica hybrid with 26% THC content. These two parent strains are responsible for giving this strain its characteristic aroma, flavor, and potency. 

Let us look at other aspects of the strain in order to see how it pans out. 

Purple Punch Strain Characteristics

Each strain is set apart by a number of different markers. These markers include a range of things that add a unique touch to the cannabis. Exploring these markers will help us understand the strain from an objective and informative POV. Here are some of the factors that you need to know in order to understand the strain closely. 

Aroma, Taste & Appearance

The Purple Punch strain is rich in the caryophyllene terpene. The caryophyllene terpene is the dominant terpene that is known to produce a musty, sweet, and wood-ish flavor. Apart from that, terpene is also popular for possessing pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Other minor terpenes found in this strain include the D-Limonene geraniol, myrcene, and β-Pinene. I personally feel that the strain has a sweet taste like the berries, along with undertones of wet bark.  A truly unique experience. The aroma also mimics this characteristic, and therefore, it exudes a heavy wood-ish fragrance,

The strain is just saturated with a specific pigment called the anthocyanins. This is the chemical that is responsible for the striking blue and purple hues and aesthetic appeal of the strain. Apart from the striking hues, the strain also features vibrant orange pistils coated with snowy and sticky trichomes. 

Hence, this is a beautiful strain with one of the best hues and finest aroma profiles among all other Indica-dominant strains out there. 


The strain packs a hefty punch with 25% THC. For those who do not know, 25% THC is quite a lot. In fact, it is equivalent to some of the most potent strains out there. Subsequently, this strain is primarily an Indica Dominant strain. Therefore, expect to feel some really hefty couch-locking situations. This means you will spend a considerable amount of time lazing around. 

Subsequently, the high THC content, along with Indica-dominant lineage, will also make you feel soothing, relaxed, and sedated. Therefore making you feel relaxed and calm. 

Finally, the strain is also known to induce momentary hunger, which is called the munchies. So, after a smoke sesh, you will have to gorge down on a whole pie. Hence, keep the snacks close. 

Medicinal benefits

Apart from its recreational usage, the strain is also known for its medicinal benefits. As a result, the strain is one of the most popular strains among individuals who want to give medical marijuana a swing. 

Users have claimed that the strain has really helped them regulate their mood and feel relaxed. As a result, people who suffer from mental ailments like OCD, ADHD, Anxiety, etc. have found the strain to be helpful.

Side Effects

Just as there are benefits of growing this strain, in the same way, there are some side effects that you need to remember. While none of the side effects are deal-breaking, they are certainly noteworthy and must not be glazed upon. Here are some of the most potent side effects of the strain that one must know about:

Couch locking: Moderate couch locking is okay. But if you remain couch-locked for an extended period of time, things will get detrimental for you.

Loss of coordination: The strain is potent enough to influence the general motor function of the human body. I personally feel that the strain negatively impacts my speech and coordination.

Extreme anxiety: Having a bad trip is okay. However, the strain is potent enough to put users in absolute green-out situations. For those who do not know, greening out is basically overdosing on cannabis. While this is never fatal, it can be quite discomforting. In other cases, users have reported that the strain can make people have downright panic attacks. Moderation is the key
