Smoke Report: Purple Punch x Do-Si-Dos by Philosopher Seeds

In this article, we invite you to join us as we smoke a joint of Purple Punch x Do-Si-Dos by Philosopher Seeds, a variety that stands out for its incredible resin production, intense flavour and potent effect. Created by crossing the famous Purple Punch (Alpha Cut) with the equally popular Do-Si-Dos (Norcal Cut), this feminised hybrid offers the best of both plants, with a luxurious abundance of trichomes that are simply spectacular to behold.

Of course, if you've got any doubts about the proper procedure for tasting, we recommend you take a look at our article on the introduction to cannabis tasting, where we give a step by step explanation of how to correctly carry out the entire process. You'll find the link below.

Cultivation information

The buds being sampled were grown with the following equipment and fertilisers. For this taste test, we chose an easy-to-find purple phenotype with an intense aroma.

  • Lighting system: Lumatek Aurora CMH 315W 3100K
  • Substrate: Ugro Coco Pure Air
  • Nutrients: The Metrop range of fertilisers, flushed with plain water for the last 2 weeks before harvest
  • Flowering period: 9 weeks
  • Photoperiod: 12 hours light / 12 hours darkness
  • Material sampled: Dried flowers

Organoleptic test

Pre-tasting evaluation

The bud has a rock-like appearance, with a medium calyx-leaf ratio. The layer of resin covering it is thick and with a great number of glandular trichomes, which break off easily. The flower is hard to the touch, thanks in part to being correctly dried, without haste, something that can even be noted in the sound made when breaking up the flowers with an aluminium grinder.

Before grinding, the bud gives off a creamy and sweet aroma, with clear notes of berries that intermingle with milky nuances. Once the bud is ground up, these notes of blackberries become more evident, along with a greater overall intensity of the aroma. Once the joint is rolled and given a "dry hit" (by puffing on the unlit joint), the creamy notes take centre-stage, leaving a pleasant and persistent sweet taste in the mouth.

Introduction to cannabis tasting

In this article we will introduce you in the exciting world of marijuana tasting, both organoleptic as psychoactive. From the moment we open the container with the sample until the last exhalation during the tasting, a torrent of sensations perceived by the five senses invade our body. What we will try here is to classify and to note down these sensations evaluating them according to the taste of each one. What better way to pay tribute to the buds of that we have been taking care for months?

Lighting up!

In the traditional manner of cannabis tasting, the form of consumption is chosen to maximise the appreciation of the various nuances. In this case, a regular joint was rolled with RAW Organic Hemp Papers, a Jilter Filter and a cardboard filter tip.

The aroma given off by the burning joint is faithful to that of the dried flowers, although the touches of forest fruits are a little more difficult to perceive. However, these are very evident while taking the first puff, even before swallowing the smoke, which enters smoothly and without scratching the throat. On the exhale is when the creamy nuances predominate, like a sweet yoghurt, an exquisite flavour that tastes good enough to eat, and very long-lasting.

In a few words, and if I had to sum it up in one sentence: imagine smoking a joint of yoghurt with lots of sugar and blackberries... a true delicatessen!!!

Psychoactive test

Without a doubt, one of this variety's great strengths is its potent physical effect, which puts the body into a state of enjoyable lethargy, relaxing the muscles and producing a pleasant feeling of well-being. The high is fast-acting and forceful, a few tokes being enough to feel its effect both physically and cerebrally.

This effect is more typical of Indica varieties than that of the Do-Si-Dos clone, and it's clear that the Purple Punch mother has passed on its intensely narcotic and relaxing effect.

Medicinal properties of Purple Punch x Do-Si-Dos

This variety is ideal for those seeking to:

  • Stimulate the appetite

  • Fight insomnia and other sleep disorders
