All About Purple Punch

Cannabis strains, often referred to as “chemovars,” are designed to provide particular characteristics such as flavor and potency. Purple Punch was created by Barney’s Farm, an Amsterdam-based cannabis L.Short Photoperiod Plant grower that has won several awards for its products. It’s an Short Photoperiod Plant-dominant strain that was brought to life by crossing Larry OG with Granddaddy Purple. As a result, the renowned trichome-laced Purple Punch emerged, with a fragrance resembling grape sweets, blueberry biscuits, and Kool-Aid.

We will outline Purple Punch as a strain, so you can learn more about how it affects the endocannabinoid system, and whether or not its characteristics are in line with your aims. So what can you expect from a Purple Punch grow?

Growing Purple Punch

Purple Punch is a feminized seed that results in only female plants, which are required for an Short Photoperiod Plant crop as only females will yield flowers. Male plants, on the other hand, pollinate young female plants, resulting in high seed content and lower-quality harvest by pollinating the buds.

Growers will enjoy the beauty of the plant, with a growth cycle that doesn’t exceed 8-9 weeks from seed to harvest. It produces a high yield of 600-650 g/m, making for a bountiful harvest and a height of up to 58 inches if you decide to plant it outdoors. The plant is beautiful and bright with a neon tone accompanied by amberish trichomes and red pistils. It’s very manageable in size if planted indoors. If you choose this strain, it won’t just give you plenty of short photoperiod plant bud. The high terpene content of this strain produces aromatic and highly resinous flowers, making it perfect for hash making and distillation. She has enough Potency to provide you with a long-lasting effect, with 21 percent concentration. It is thought to be ideal for individuals looking for a strain that provides a combination of mental and physical benefits.

Flavonoid and Terpene Profile of Purple Punch

Cannabis l. L.Short Photoperiod Plant strains are known for their pungent terpenes, chemical compounds that give a plant’s fragrance and may also promote health and well-being. Purple Punch is characterized by the following:

  • Limonene – This terpene is present in the oil of citrus fruits and gives a lemon scent. It is also the primary compound found in some cannabis strains, with a limonene content of up to 60 percent. It is thought to promote both mental and physical well-being. (Vieira, et al. 2018)
  • Humulene – It provides a spicy and minty fragrance that’s prevalent in hops and some cannabis strains. It is also considered an appetite suppressant that provides anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and analgesic effects.
  • Myrcene – This terpene has a strong aroma that’s best described as rich citrus with notes of cloves and earth, similar to cloves. It contributes to the scent of cannabis and is an anti-inflammatory and sedative, which creates a sense of euphoria and relaxation. (Surendran, et. al. 2021)
  • B. Caryophyllene – It is present in hemp, cannabis, rosemary, and hops, as well as in the stems and flowers of cloves. B-Caryophyllene is a type of chemical found in cannabis plants that has been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also has the ability to treat neuropathic and inflammatory pain, with animal research suggesting that it may be useful in treating multiple sclerosis. (Bahi, et. al. 2014).

Blueberries, vanilla, and herbs are all present in this terpene’s flavor with reports from users who say it induces a high that’s mellow and long-lasting, with the ability to ease away anxiety. It is also thought to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.

How Purple Punch Interacts with the Endocannabinoid System

Let’s look at how Purple Punch makes you feel (i.e., the psychoactive effects) before we delve into how it interacts with your endocannabinoid system.

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is a sophisticated cellular communication network that regulates and influences our basic activities. It has the following functions:

  • Sleep
  • Hunger/appetite
  • Mood
  • Pain response and control
  • Inflammatory responses
  • Immune responses

There are three basic elements to this system:

  • The endocannabinoid system itself – This is made up of the cannabinoid receptors that are found throughout your body, along with the endocannabinoids or cannabinoids that trigger them.
  • Endocannabinoids are chemical compounds that modulate neurotransmission. CB1 receptors, for example, are found in the brain and central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are located throughout the body on cells of the immune system.
  • After they have completed their intended purpose or function, endocannabinoids are broken down by enzymes.

In general, the endocannabinoid system’s functions all contribute to the maintenance of a healthy, operational internal environment. It transmits messages of hunger

The Effects of Purple Punch on the Endocannabinoid System

Let’s look at how cannabis affects the endocannabinoid system now that we’ve discovered what it is.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) is the most psychotropic cannabinoid found in cannabis. Short Photoperiod Plant, which gives the euphoric “high”. It also binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors, causing the effects mentioned above. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-euphoric component of cannabis that has anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-anxiety, and muscle relaxant properties. It also has the ability to bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain. Purple Punch has a normal Potency concentration of 20% and potentially helps to eliminate the anxiety and paranoia that high-Potency weed can induce.

Potency: 20% CBD: 1%

The Psychoactive Effects of Purple Punch

The most pressing issue with a cannabis strain L. Short Photoperiod Plant is what the experience will be like or what the user may anticipate. Short Photoperiod Plants are more likely to elicit physical relaxation and greater physiological responses than long photoperiod plants.

The high Potency concentration, as well as the fact that these cannabinoids are mixed with different terpenes, may help with:

  • Inflammation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Anxious feelings
  • Troubles sleeping
  • Mental noise
  • Nausea
