So, let’s serve you a review of this Cherry Punch strain!
Cherry Punch Strain Genetics
This fruity sativa-dominant hybrid strain is the result of crossing a couple of rare cannabis strains. The parents are Cherry AK-47 and Purple Punch F2.
The Cherry AK-47 strain is a phenotype of AK-47 rather than an actual strain. It features strong notes of cherry and undertones of sandalwood in red and purple toned buds.
The Purple Punch F2 is a second-generation Purple Punch variety that may promote more recessive traits than F1, or first-generation, Purple Punch. It’s known for its sweet essence of grape and blueberry that resembles a fresh-batch of Kool-Aid.
The unique phenotype and second-generation cannabis strain make for a rarer child-strain that isn’t easy to replicate.
Perhaps that is why this strain hasn’t achieved more fame and notoriety. Luckily, you can purchase seeds of Cherry Punch to grow for yourself! You can find seeds from Symbiotic Genetics or other breeders.
The Symbiotic Genetics seeds will be this specific type of Cherry Punch, while other breeders may have different characteristics since they almost certainly used different parents.
Symbiotic Genetics has used that specific Purple Punch F2 to create many other child-strains, so getting your seeds from them ensures you can grow the same quality bud as the strain is meant to!
They claim that phenotype 15 of Cherry Punch is the best of the bunch, so getting your hands on those genetics would be optimal of course.
Black Cherry Punch Strain Yield
Black Cherry Punch can be grown indoors and outdoors. Indoor growers can expect to harvest around 55-65 grams per square foot of plant. Outdoor growers can expect to harvest upwards of 750-1200 grams per plant.
It produces oversized buds that are sure to please any grower. Indoor plants tend to reach up to 4 feet tall while outdoor crops reach heights up to 7 feet tall.
Growers may use topping and pruning to encourage more lateral growth from these sativa-dominant hybrids. This will increase bud production and help fill out more of the lower buds to match the quality of the dominant colas.
Cherry Punch Strain Flowering Time
Black Cherry Punch flowers for 9-10 weeks. Outdoor growers can expect to harvest in early October in the US.
The buds feature deep green dominating the hints of purple and red, covered in orange hairs and milky-white trichomes.
Growers wishing to bring out the purples and a chance at the red hues need the plants to be exposed to low temperatures during the beginning stages of flowering. Indoor growers can do this artificially very efficiently. Those growing this weed strain outdoors will be at the mercy of Mother Nature.
Black Cherry Punch features potent THC levels between 20-24%. It is a strong strain that can melt you to the couch before you know it.
This sativa-dominant hybrid produces mostly a cerebral high but also grants the physical relaxation of an indica. The high is uplifting and euphoric. You feel more bliss than focus with this pot. It’s also known to produce a hefty bout of the munchies.
Symbiotic Genetics, the team responsible for giving up this amazing ganja strain, even calls Cherry Punch their favorite wake and bake bud. You’ll feel a boost in energy without the racy effects and physical relaxation without sedation.
If you can beat the THC levels that can discombobulate your thoughts, this bud can be an aide for a productive day.
Black Cherry Punch Strain Flavor & Aroma
This marijuana strain is rich in an essence of cherries, with skunk reminiscent of the AK-47 parent-strain present in the aroma and flavor. The blend of sweet and skunk creates a pungent essence that pleases many who have the chance to try it.
Limonene dominates the terpene profile and it also features Caryophyllene and Myrcene.
Limonene brings citrus-like tones to the essence and helps reduce the effects of anxiety stress. It’s also good for a mental boost of energy.
Caryophyllene is the spicy terpene that acts on the endocannabinoid system like no other terpene. It reduces the effects of inflammation in the body as is a great feature in medicinal marijuana.
Myrcene is a relaxing terpene, which is probably why there is a calming physical effect with Cherry Punch.
Put the effects of these terpenes together and it matches the known effects of this pot strain. It also shows promise for using Black Cherry Punch for medicinal purposes.
Medical Conditions This Pot Strain Can Help
While not rich in CBD, there are still many medical uses for this marijuana. Here are some of the most common conditions that people use Cherry Punch for:
- Chronic Stress
- Headaches and Migraines
Those looking for a serious medical strain will find relief with Cherry Punch if their THC tolerance is high enough. This strain can be potent enough to turn a useful medicinal high into an unproductive couch-lock session when consumed by beginners.
