Fruit Punch Strain Information
About Fruit Punch
Fruit Punch is a predominant Sativa hybrid with a unique fruity flavor profile. It is a cross between three legendary strains: Haze, Northern Lights, and Skunk #1. This combination creates a marvelous strain that uplifts mood and treats the taste buds. Its potency ranges between 17% and 25% THC content.
The best characteristic of this strain is its wonderful scent. A fruity berry scent wafts up from the cured buds. Although sweet, the impression is more sugary than natural fruity, somewhat reminiscent of candy or sherbet. Lurking underneath is a slightly piney and dank aroma. Then, when combusted, this strain burns with a smooth smoke that is very easy on the lungs. The smoke tastes herbal and floral on the exhale because of its parent strain, Haze.
The taste of Fruit Punch is almost as good as it smells. After it hits your taste buds, it is akin to a tropical fruit smoothie. Afterward, the berry overtones, along with the citrus undertones, will treat your senses once you inhale the strain. As well as a wonderful mild sweetness blends everything perfectly.
Fruit Punch’s bag appeal is obvious from the outset: its large flowers have a distinctly bullet-like shape. Despite being mostly Sativa, these buds hold the dense, solid structure more commonly associated with Indicas. The tightly curling leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are shot through with brown and orange pistils. In some phenotypes of the strain, leaves and even stems also show faint hints of purple; these surprising hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins in the plants’ genetics are excited by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, a coating of milky-white trichomes gives these already-colorful flowers an icy sheen and accounts for their psychoactivity.
Fruity Punch may cause a case of cottonmouth. In addition, it can develop red and itchy eyes because the abundance of cannabinoids inhibits moisture production in your tear ducts. Also, a consumer may experience side effects such as paranoia or anxiety, and dizziness. Because its onset may come with the “mindrace” that may lead to intense, recursive thinking, this strain is not best for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Medical Benefits of Fruity Punch
Medical cannabis patients find many psychological benefits from this mentally focused strain.
For instance, it can ease chronic stress, anxiety, and depression. Its long-lasting focus can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders, helping them to concentrate on a single task. Its Sativa-dominant properties allow it to ease various pains and aches in the body, such as gastrointestinal issues.
Those undergoing chemotherapy may find it useful to overcome symptoms of the treatment, such as nausea.
