A BRIEF HISTORY OF PURPLE PUNCH
The Purple Punch strain of cannabis is an Indica only strain created by Supernova Gardens of Hawaii. Despite its island origin, it didn’t take long for Purple Punch to make its way to the mainland, where it is now one of the most popular Indica strains on the west coast!
A Rocky Start for the Strain
Believe it or not, the creators of Purple Punch had a difficult time getting their strain into dispensaries. Even the biggest dispensary in California wasn’t interested in its mere 12% level of THC.
But of course, Purple Punch doesn’t have a 12% THC level; for whatever reason, the test results ended up being completely inaccurate. Luckily, they were smart enough to get the same batch retested at a different institution and, as it turns out, Purple Punch happens to be one of the rarest strains of indica with THC levels that can be as high as 25%!
Naturally, this revelation resulted in a sudden demand for Purple Punch cannabis and is now in the running to be one of the top strains of 2020.
Sometimes, all we need to do is follow our gut feeling despite the results of a test, and it can lead us to a world of success! And in this case, that success is the creation and popularity of Purple Punch!
Purple Punch is an interesting cross between Grandaddy Purple and Larry OG and results in an extremely calming, euphoric high that reduces the burden of anxiety, stress, and depression. Commonly referred to as a dessert strain of cannabis, you will feel yourself fading away into the best sleep you will ever have.
