About Papaya Punch
Papaya Punch certainly lives up to both words of its name. Not only is it high-flying, sweet and fruity, but it packs an incredible punch, with THC levels nearing 30% on the top end. Its dominant terpenes impart a delicious tropical flavor without making you feel too elevated or “racy.” In fact, you’ll probably be heavy on this strain, cemented bodily to your big comfy couch and ready to not move for a while.
Papaya and Purple Punch were bred by Diem Farms to create the perfect tropical fruity strain for growers that keep their gardens indoors. The strain grows with hardly any space between its buds and nodes, growing densely as its heart-like green nugs come in and sprout their thick coat of opaque, milky-white trichomes, even on the fan leaves. Growers recommend taking the dense tops and using outward trellis training to control some of the strain’s ambitious leaf and trichome production.
Pruning is a good idea, and the strain responds well to it, especially outdoors, where Papaya Punch is more susceptible to mold. Keep an eye on it. If you do, you can expect a heavy yield without too much stress. Consider the SCROG technique to give yourself a leg up on the strain’s feisty growth pattern. Once grown and rolled up, the strain has a wonderful calming, lifting effect that hits hard in your cerebrum and sits in your head like a heavy balloon for hours. You’ll feel relaxed, creative, and even chatty – if you want to hang out with friends, this is a great strain for your afternoon conversations. The high spreads to your body, throughout your limbs, and imparts a sensation of tingling heaviness all over. You’ll be stuck on your couch and you won’t be complaining.
These effects make Papaya Punch ideal for those suffering from stress-related insomnia as well as other stress disorders. PTSD and depression can be easier to manage with Papaya Punch. Chronic pain conditions can also be mitigated using the relaxing, potent body high of the strain’s intense THC composition.
The taste is like a light, spicy herb playing on the playground until a tropical berry bully comes up and pushes them off the swings. You’ll taste light hints of spicy, almost cheesy flavors, but the strain wears the badge of Papaya with pride and purpose. The strain mellows you out without truly sedating you, so it’s great for social events, movies, or just hanging out and not doing much. This is a couch-crasher, and a comforting one.
