Bud Buzz: Purple Punch strain is a potent Indica cannabis strain that is even better than it looks, and it looks fantastic. Huge dense buds that can be slightly sticky when you break them up. So if you are grinding your cannabis, leave it out for an hour or two before putting it in the grinder. This will be just enough to dry it out a little. The buds are dark green with plenty of purple throughout and frosty trichomes covering nearly the entire top half of each bud. The smell is pure grape Kool-Aid or if you remember the purple chewy Sweetarts than used to be so popular. Either way it’s a very sweet candy smell and the taste is a slightly earthier version of the smell. Overall delicious! Purple Punch is a true Indica but it hits more like a hybrid at first.
You know the game when someone pretends to crack an egg on the top of your head and you can almost feeling it running down your scalp onto your shoulders and beyond? No? It’s a cool trick and you should try it. If you are familiar with this game, then you will know exactly what to expect from this cannabis strain. You will feel it as an intense head high that slowly spreads down to your body. Leaving you fully relaxed, happy and slightly uplifted but only for the first hour or so, then progressively more and more sleepy. If you manage to stay awake, you can expect your Purple Punch buzz to last a little over three hours.
For most people, that last hour might be a battle to keep your eyes open and stay awake. Why fight that urge, this cannabis strain is extremely useful for insomniacs or just anyone that wants a great night sleep. Especially if you have trouble quieting your mind at night so you can fall asleep. Purple Punch is the absolute perfect strain for this problem. This cannabis strain is also good for stress, anxiety, depression and mild to moderate pain management. The negatives are some serious dry mouth and to a lesser degree red dry eyes.
Drinkables – Purple Punch strain requires some good hydration to keep the dry mouth under control. Start with plain water and keep sipping that from time to time. This cannabis strain is a fairly sedative Indica. If you want to feel a bit more alert, add something caffeinated to your drink plan. Either an energy drink if you really want a boost. Or an iced coffee or tea, hot tea or coffee works too. It just depends on your mood and preference.
Munchables – You will experience the munchies with this cannabis strain and they usually hit pretty quickly about 30 minutes or so after you first smoke. Unless you want to snack off and on for another hour, choose some sort of protein rich food to start with. You may find you won’t end up overeating, which is very easy to do with Purple Punch. A veggie omelet is a great way to get some protein and should keep you full longer than straight carbs. If you need something sweet, you can always make some oatmeal cookies and use dates instead of raisins. This is a game changer taste wise plus the cookies will be nice and chewy.
Doables – Purple Punch is an Indica so you are not going to be running a half marathon and should not expect to feel super motivated to use this time to get your cardio in. On the other hand, it is not really a couch lock cannabis strain so if you feel like some physical activity, stretching with a few simple yoga poses will feel amazing. Also amazing is a long soak if you happen to be a bath person, just don’t fall asleep. The perfect strain for low key gaming and chill talks with close friends or even a movie. Just don’t choose a 3 hour epic movie because you will likely have to re-watch part since you fell asleep and missed the ending.
