Papaya Punch #2 by Oni Seeds
If you’ve been daydreaming of a tropical getaway, look no further than the Papaya Punch #2 strain by Oni Seeds! An indica-leaning though well-balanced hybrid that was created by crossbreeding the two fruity favourites, the Purple Punch and Papaya strains, this phenotype is a positive and uplifting strain that is a great choice for social get-togethers or for your own personal paradise. With its aromas and flavours of exotic fruits, you’ll be thinking you were in the tropics–excellent for a rainy day when you feel like you need to transport from the regular day to day! Put yourself in vacay-mode with Papaya Punch #2!
While its unique and fruity flavour profile is already appealing, the effects of Papaya Punch #2 are rather alluring in itself. The strain is actually recognized for its nicely balanced combination of sativa and indica effects. Like any great sativa strain, Papaya Punch #2 offers users feelings of happiness and fits of giggles, making it a good choice to share amongst friends or if you struggle with social settings. It also induces a boost of energy, so would be perfect for day time usage, including mornings for a wake and bake. This characteristic helps with those struggling with fatigue throughout the day, and the strain may even alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression due to its uplifting nature. Like an indica, on the other hand, you experience a mellow-like calmness and body relaxation. Its parent strain, Papaya, is said to be narcotic-like, but this does not induce any such state of couch-lock tiredness or numbness and is more gentle while still relaxing. It helps ease body pains, and combined with its sativa-like effects, can further reduce stress. With Papaya Punch #2 by Oni Seeds, you really do get the best of two worlds: sativa effects of energy and an uplifted mood, balanced by indica effects of calming serenity.
Papaya Punch #2 has been tested to measure at 20% THC on average but can reach upwards of 23%-25% for some batches. Cultivated by Oni Seeds, the strain is a 50%:50% indica/sativa hybrid, but in terms of genetics and effects is considered indica leaning. Its parent, Purple Punch, is an indica-dominant hybrid (crossed between Larry OG and Granddaddy Purple) that averages 18%-20% in THC but also typically has 1% CBD, whereas Papaya, also a well-balanced 50/50 hybrid (made by crossing Citral and Ice) ranges at 20%-25%, and also has 1% CBN content rather than CBD. With such a strong indica lineage, it is surprising that the sativa effects in this one are still so strong and effective, making Papaya Punch #2 all the more unique!
Appearance & Aroma
The nugget-like buds of Papaya Punch #2 are a pale, minty green, decorated with a frosty layer of trichomes and yellowish-orange or golden-amber pistils that are reminiscent of the inside of a fresh papaya! It truly honours its name with its papaya aroma and flavours which are accented by hints of tropical pineapples. Though, just like its predecessor, the strain is deliciously berry and grape-like with notes of cheese as well; pack this in a bowl and you’ve got yourself a bowl of fruit punch!
