Adverse reactions 

After the regular cottonmouth and dry eyes, the biggest effect of Purple Punch is intense sleepiness. This is only natural, considering the strength of its indica heritage. The simplest way to keep a handle on that is to ease your way into the Purple Punch strain. Restrain yourself despite the delicious flavor, and you’ll figure out how much you can handle without getting overwhelmed. 

Medical 

Couchlock, tension-reduction, and relaxation are all incredibly helpful for many conditions, and Purple Punch Indica does well with this.  Many users say this strain has helped with their anxiety, depression, or stress. It’s not a focus-heavy strain, which can allow people with OCD or anxious thoughts to let go for a while. It’s also regularly cited as helping people with depression forget their worries for a while.

The high amount of caryophyllene in the terpene profile of this strain leads to anti-inflammatory effects, which can benefit conditions such as chronic pain or arthritis. It also helps with short-term issues such as sprains or sinus headaches. 

Finally, the intense sedative effect makes this a great strain for insomniacs. The deep, easy sleep after trying some Purple Punch makes many people’s lives much easier. The strain’s ability to calm racing thoughts helps just as much as the body high. 

Growing Purple Punch Strain

The Purple Punch weed strain is a little tricky to grow. It’s just as delicious to caterpillars and mold as it is to people. Understanding how to prevent these pests will save you significant stress. Looking up grow info for pickier plants will help your harvest go off without a hitch. 

Buds are generally fluffy with a shockingly bright green appearance. Nugs are usually covered in orange hairs when they’re ready to harvest. Combine that with the purple leaves, and Purple Punch is one pretty lady. 

To trigger the coloration that the Purple Punch weed strain is so well-known for, you need to carefully expose it to cooler temperatures. The purple coloration is a result of temperature protection mechanisms in the plant. You need to find the balance between stressing your plants enough via low-stress training to develop the color and keeping them healthy for harvest. 

Your plants will remain moderately sized, between 5 and 6 feet, unless you train them to spread wide. They are invariably bushy, thanks to their pure indica genes. 

Flowering Time 

Indoor

Purple Punch has all the benefits of a pure indica strain, including the short flowering time. Look for flowers after 7 to 8 weeks. The exact amount of harvest depends on your growing expertise, but about 6 ounces per square foot is a reasonable goal.

Outdoor

For outdoor grows, Purple Punch needs a warmer climate. Harvests happen towards the end of October. The exact yield depends heavily on grower skill, but it can reach 1000-2000 grams per plant.

      • I just flipped mine. Got her as a clone in Michigan and had to fight a little powdery mildew issue but she seems good now. So I’d say mold and mildew are very important to watch for on this particular strain. Happy growing. Oh and p.m. is white and almost blends in with tricomes.
