Cannabis THC and CBD

With THC levels hitting between 18% to 25%, Purple Punch cannabis packs a serious punch.

The first few times, I was struck by the potency, which provided substantial relief from chronic back pain – tnx to its high THC.

The CBD content, though lower, complements the THC well, smoothing out the experience and ensuring it never feels too overwhelming.

This balanced cannabinoid profile makes Purple Punch a reliable choice for both recreational and medicinal purposes.

Weed Appearance

The visual allure of Purple Punch is undeniable.

Each bud is dense, compact, and fluffy, adorned with bright amber trichomes that sparkle against deep green hues with royal purple accents.

The first batch I grew was particularly vibrant, and each bud seemed like a small treasure.

The striking appearance not only promises quality but delivers it in both flavor and effect.

Genetic Lineage

Purple Punch owes its impressive qualities to its robust genetic lineage, being a cross of Larry OG and Granddaddy Purple.

Having experienced both parent strains, I noticed that Purple Punch combines Larry OG’s potent effects with Granddaddy Purple’s sweet flavors beautifully.

This 80% Indica / 20% Sativa hybrid showcases the best traits of its lineage, making it a top choice for those who appreciate a deep, body-relaxing high with a pleasant euphoric kick.

Growing Experience

When growing Purple Punch, I found it thrives best in a sunny, humid, Mediterranean climate – conditions I replicated in my greenhouse.

The plants reached a medium size, which was manageable and ideal for the space.

Indoor yields ranged around 2 to 2.3 oz/ftΒ², but it was the outdoor plants that really impressed, with each producing up to 70 oz.

The flowering period of 56 to 63 days felt quick given the abundant harvest it produced, rewarding even for a beginner grower.


Purple Punch is predominantly indica, with an 80% indica and 20% sativa ratio.

Purple Punch is generally considered a downer, due to its relaxing and sedative effects.

The effects of Purple Punch include feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and sleepiness, making it a great choice for unwinding and dealing with stress or insomnia.


Purple Punch strain stands out for its sedative effects, robust flavors, and striking appearance.

Ideal for evening use, it can help users manage stress, anxiety, and pain, making it a versatile choice for both recreational and medicinal use.

Whether you’re new to cannabis or a seasoned connoisseur, Purple Punch offers a rich, fulfilling experience that’s hard to pass up.
