Fruity Punch Strain Genetics
Fresh out of the testing stages, the Fruity Punch marijuana strain is an original creation from the Elev8 seeds company that’s been carefully selected for its organoleptic and sensory traits.
A cross of Fruity Pebbles OG (a sweet-tasting hybrid from Alien Genetics that combines DNA from Green Ribbon, Granddaddy Purple, and Tahoe Alien), and the delicious Purple Punch, Fruity Punch lineage lends it an unbeatable fruit flavour and indomitable indica intensity. The perfect prescription for sleepiness and stress, and for marijuana fans thirsty for new flavour combinations.
Fruity Punch Strain Terpene Profile
The wide-reaching genetics of Fruity Pebbles OG have lent it a flavour that’s reminiscent of the breakfast cereal. Fruity Punch flavour and aroma marries this unique tropical fruit and berry aesthetic with the delicious grape-tasting terpene profile of Purple Punch, giving it a sweet and refreshing fruit punch taste that’s the perfect salve for a hot summer day. Discerning consumers will also notice a whiff of skunk and the unmistakable funk of OG Kush that’s present on the aftertaste.
Fruity Punch dominant terpenes include limonene and beta-caryophyllene. Along with myrcene terpenes and alpha-pinene, these aromatic hydrocarbons are the primary source of its juicy fruit flavour, along with many of the wonderful psychoactive and medical effects that characterise the strain.
Fruity Punch Strain Effects
Its indica-leaning lineage means that while Fruity Punch has a wonderfully numbing effect on the body, its sativa typical effects are generally less pronounced. Inheriting the one-two punch of its parent strain, which hits between the eyes before settling down into the limbs, this high THC, low CBD content strain’s initial uplifting and euphoric hit will keep users happy and chatty before a strong sedative effect takes over, sending even the most seasoned consumers into a state of extreme relaxation.
Couchlock can be a real concern with this strain as Fruity Punch THC content is similar to its Purple Punch parent plant, which average in the mid-twenties. While great for social or solo use, its sedative sucker-punch can quickly spell an early bedtime if underestimated, so we recommend saving this strain for the later hours of the day.
Fruity Punch Medical Benefits
High levels of limonene and caryophyllene terpenes make Fruity Punch medical seeds a healthy alternative to traditional medications. Working in conjunction with cannabinoids like THC, these compounds benefit from entourage effect and augment each other’s psychoactive properties, giving the strain added power and potency.
Fruity Punch medical benefits are mostly related to the body. As an effective anti-inflammatory and analgesic, its effects are perfect for pain relief, helping physical injuries to heal, and for soothing soreness and muscular discomfort.
How to Grow Fruity Punch Strain
Available as feminized cannabis seeds, growing Fruity Punch is an easy process and suitable for cultivators of all levels of experience. Producing compact buds in intense shades of green colour with a heavy covering of orange trichomes and sticky resin, they can be grown either indoors or out and adapt well to different growing methods such as SCROG or SOG.
Decent yields can be expected from almost every Elev8 Seeds release and growers can take advantage of Fruity Punch flowering time to maximise their output even further. With a flowering period of 8-9 weeks from germination, or in late-September when grown outdoors. Such a rapid turnover means multiple growths are possible in a single season.
