Strain Integrity

From the OCS website, “ Black Cherry Punch from -ness is an indica-dominant hybrid with a very strong THC potency potential. A flavourful swirl of terpenes, including linalool, limonene and fenchol take credit for its sweet, citrusy and earthy taste. Featuring dark green buds, fiery orange pistils and sugary trichomes, this indoor-grown strain crosses Purple Punch and Black Cherry Pie. Explore your -ness. 

According to Leafly, “ Black Cherry Punch is an indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain made by crossing Purple Punch with Black Cherry Pie. This strain produces calming effects that are mentally relaxing, but make you feel physically tingly. Black Cherry Punch is not recommended for consumers with a low THC tolerance, as the potency of this strain generally hovers around 20%. Descending from a dessert strain, you can expect a loud flavor profile full of sweet cherry flavors and floral undertones. Medical marijuana patients choose Black Cherry Punch to help relieve symptoms associated with chronic stress, chronic pain, insomnia and depression.  ”
