Do you like Jolly Ranchers? Of course you do. We love strains that mix fruity flavors with earthy notes (see Lilac Diesel or Mango Sapphire) and Kidney Punch does just that, and like the name says, it packs a punch. It will give you the calmness and relaxation that you are looking for with a great flavor and aroma to go with it.
Kidney Punch comes from LIT Farms and has a solid lineage of two great strains. It’s a cross between Watermelon Gelato and Cherry Do-Si-Dos making it fruity, potent and guaranteed to leave you feeling at ease and satisfied.
Kidney Punch Lineage
The names Watermelon Gelato and Cherry Do-Si-Do indicate fruit, ice cream and cookies. Who can go wrong with that? Those parent strains also bring a hard-hitting high and some gassy notes, as well. When you look into the parentage of Kidney Punch, you will find:
- Watermelon Gelato: With moderate to high levels of THC, Watermelon Gelato gives you a relaxing haze to your mind and uplifts your mood. The flavor has been described as tropical, with sweet apple tastes and of course–watermelon flavors.
- Cherry Do-Si-Dos: Described as bringing a tingly, relaxing high, Cherry Do-Si-Dos pairs that creative, yet also somewhat sedative high, with cherry, sweet flavors.
These two awesome strains were brought together by LIT Farms and specifically selected by Smokey Okie’s for their quality and flavor profile.
When you break down the terpenes in Kidney Punch, it’s easy to understand where the distinctive flavor comes from. The top three terpenes present are:
The tangy and/or sour fruity taste in Kidney Punch can be attributed to Limonene. It is the top terpene to deliver fruit flavors in cannabis.
All the earthiness of Kidney Punch comes from Pinene. This terpene also can bring undertones of rosemary and orange with it, adding to the herbal earthiness and additional orange or citrus flavors in Kidney Punch.
- Caryophyllene – This terpene delivers spicy and peppery notes, which give Lilac Diesel its earthy taste and smell. Some describe caryophyllene as tasting like cloves, as well.
Like the name suggests, this strain will give you a punch, but in a good way. It is packed with euphoria, relaxation and calmness. It has a great head high that slowly takes over your whole body and leaves you feeling completely relaxed.
The hybrid effect of Kidney Punch is great for a number of therapeutic reasons. It gives you a cerebral high that helps with creativity and then the back end is a full body relaxation that helps with a number of ailments. And on top of that, you get the amazing fruity flavor to go with it.
