Purple Punch Strain Information
Purple Punch is an 80/20 indica-dominant hybrid with an average THC content of 18% to 20% and virtually no CBD. This strain’s effects kick off with a fast-hitting slam of mental euphoria that’s quickly followed by an all-consuming, sedating body high that’ll gently carry you into a blissful, peaceful sleep. If you’re not looking to pass out completely, take it slow with this one, as just a few too many tokes will likely have you unconsciously drooling on your couch.
Like most indica-heavy strains, Purple Punch is known for bringing about some serious munchies, which makes it an excellent medicinal choice for tokers with a low appetite. The strain is also widely used for alleviating stress, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, headaches, and insomnia.
