This decadent treat harmoniously intertwines relaxation and sensory delight. With THC levels ranging from 15% to 25%, this indica-dominant strain can satisfy both novice and seasoned smokers. Black Cherry Punch can also boast an esteemed lineage of Purple Punch and Black Cherry Pie. Such a combination simultaneously boosts creativity and eases bodily tensions – much like a serene walk under the cherry blossoms.
For such an indica-heavy strain, it is fascinating how much Black Cherry Punch elevates the mind. As its name suggests, it delivers a punch – quickly putting you in a euphoric, blissful state characterised by mental clarity. This effect is not overbearing in the slightest. Instead, you will be left feeling peaceful and extremely happy with the moment.
Quickly, the mental tranquillity extends itself to the physical sphere, spreading down the limbs in a tingly manner, resulting in a full-body serene relaxation. This elevated, heavenly state may be a perfect companion to yoga, meditation or introspection, and creative pursuits. It will also enhance an evening spent on the couch with your favourite book.
Due to the strain’s calming nature, it is best recommended as a late afternoon treat or early in the evening when you are free of the daily hassle and can fully indulge in its tranquillity. Eventually, it will ease the transition to a night of deep, restful sleep, helping you wrap the day up on a pleasant note.
Black Cherry Punch boasts high amounts of farnesene – one of the rarest terpenes found in cannabis plants. This unique compound is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial properties as well as calming, soothing action. It also has significant amounts of limonene and linalool, which reinforce the strain’s relaxing and mood-boosting properties. As such, Black Cherry Punch can be highly recommended to individuals dealing with anxiety, depression and insomnia. Besides, it can lend a helpful hand in minor aches, as well as inflammatory conditions such as IBS.
Every rose has its thorns, and Black Cherry Punch is no different. The most frequent side effects are the familiar dry mouth and eyes. But given its potency, newcomers are advised to be cautious. Despite being a rather calming strain, it can sometimes induce gentle dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety. Moderation, as always, is the best way to ensure an enjoyable experience.
Taste & Smell
While Black Cherry Punch has many great qualities, it is unbeatable in the sensory pleasure it provides. This mind-blowing combination of two fruity strains results in an explosion of sweet cherry and grape flavour, making you feel like you are enjoying a delicious chewing gum rather than a marijuana flower. On the exhale, it turns into a more typical earthy taste, underscored by hints of herbs and spice.
The fragrance reflects all these notes – taking your mind to a summer orchard with notes of wood, spice, cherry and earth all coming together in a warm combination.
As for the buds’ looks, their colour can vary widely – with some flowers being predominantly forest green, all the way to darker shades of green and purple.
Black Cherry Punch was created by the skilful breeders at Symbiotic Genetics. They have solidified their name in the cannabis industry by bringing us famous names such as Mimosa and Wedding Crasher. To create the intensely aromatic, fruity, calming strain we know as Black Cherry Punch today, they picked one of their most famous creations, Purple Punch, and crossed it with Black Cherry Pie.
Black Cherry Punch is not particularly fussy, but prospective growers need patience. While it can start flowering around the 10th-week mark, it usually takes 11-12 weeks to be ready for harvest.
Other than that, maintenance should be relatively easy. With its robust genetics, the plant is disease-resistant. Nevertheless, keep the humidity and temperature moderate for the best results.
Expected yields range from 400 grams per square metre indoors to a generous 550 grams per plant outdoors.
