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 Punch is a slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing the infamous Papaya X Purple Punch strains.
Papaya Punch Appearance & Taste
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.
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.
This bud has a sweet tropical berry flavor with a lightly spicy exhale. The aroma is very similar, although with a notable punch of cheese to it, too. Papaya Punch buds have flat and dense heart-shaped forest green nugs with furry orange hairs and a coating of frosty milky amber crystal trichomes.
Papaya Punch Effects
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.
Final Thoughts on Papaya Punch
Famous for its super sweet flavor and head-spinning effects, Papaya Punch is perfect for any indica lover who really wants to kick back and relax after a long and stressful day. The high starts with a slight lift, filling you with a sense of cerebral calm and ease that’s blissful and heady in nature. As your mind settles into this relaxing state, you’ll feel an influx of creativity and sociability that lends itself incredibly well to any conversation with friends. A deep-felt body high comes next, creeping into your limbs before leaving you feeling heavy and immovable, fully couch-locked and pretty happy about it. This combination quickly turns sedative, leaving you sleepy, fading in and out before you finally pass out. With these effects and its super high 20-29% average THC level, Papaya Punch is often chosen to treat conditions such as insomnia, chronic stress or PTSD, chronic pain and depression.
