Below is a comprehensive overview of this weed strain’s genetic makeup, taste, optimal growing conditions, and more; read on for the basics of how to cultivate and enjoy.
What’s The Parentage of Purple Punch Weed Seeds?
These weed seeds produce plants with dreamlike qualities. A real visual stunner, the matured plant will have Granddaddy Purple’s vivid hues and Larry OG’s ability to soothe.
What Are The Growing Conditions for Optimal Production?
Purple Punch cannabis seeds thrive in humid, sunlit climates. However, they can also flourish indoors with a powerful heating and lighting system and are best suited to intermediate to advanced growers.
- An ideal temperature range of 66-82° Fahrenheit (19-28°Celsius)
- Humidity levels of 40-60%
This plant can reach modest heights of 5-6 feet. With appropriate care, Purple Punch weed seeds will produce deep, purple-dense buds each carrying a heavy dose and boasting vivid orange pistils. If you’re looking to turn up the volume on its signature indigo shade, we recommend lowering the temperature and light slightly at night.
What Are the Flowering Times and Yields?
Although indica dominant, this plant’s growing process is influenced heavily by its sativa lineage. Under the right conditions, growers can expect flowering times of 8-9 weeks. Yields are typically ready by late September. Under optimum conditions, this strain provides significant indoor and outdoor yields of up to 400g/m² and 500 grams per plant, respectively.
With proper care, you’ll have an abundance of lush plants boasting show-stopping color and a rainbow candy taste.
What Are The Aroma and Flavor Profile of Purple Punch Seeds?
This strain has a terpene profile heavy with limonene, pinene, and caryophyllene. The result is a pungent citrus aroma with hints of spice and earthiness, and a sweet taste similar to tropical punch. Its sharp, fruity properties are kept in check with darker, earthier notes. The result is something reminiscent of blueberry muffins with a cinnamon kick.
What Are Popular Cultivars & Crosses Featuring Purple Punch Genetics?
Purple Punch seeds are often combined with other strains to produce a variety of cultivars that are both unique and sweet. Here are some we find noteworthy:

Larry OG boasts minty, neon green hues and frosty trichomes. This cultivar is an excellent choice for fans of Purple Punch seeds but with an added kick of Larry OG. The result is a slender plant with flexible branches known for its excellent stretching.
Growers will appreciate this hybrid as it can mature in just 8-9 weeks. Outdoor growers can expect yields of up to 500g per m2 while indoor growers can produce up to 700g/24.7 oz per plant.
Granddaddy Purple (GDP) x Purple Punch
This hybrid strain is similar to Purple Punch seeds but with a stronger dose of GDP. This cultivar is coated in generous layers of trichomes and provides an intensely relaxing body high.
Blueberry Muffin x Purple Punch
Blueberry Muffins’ flavor combines with Purple Punch’s feminized seeds to produce something equally lulling and sweet.
What Are the Benefits of Growing with Purple Punch Strains?
Invigorating the Taste Buds
Although this cannabis plant is influenced heavily by both its parents, its taste is distinctly its own.
The terpenes present in Purple Punch strains create a rich, complex flavor profile that intensifies with curing. Its fruity flavor delights the taste buds with earthy undertones calm and soothe. Many describe it as reminiscent of grape candy, tart berries, and tropical punch with an herbal finish.
Producing Trichome Laden Bud Sites
This strain is known for its abundant trichomes. The amber-hued crystals naturally produce significant amounts of resin. However, there are several strategies growers can use to enhance this ability, particularly later in the flowering stage.
Trichomes are a cannabis plant’s form of protection against UV rays. Increasing the light during the day will encourage a more robust layer of trichomes while lowering the lights at night will be the appropriate setting for the plants to do their work.
