Like the packaged fruit juice of the same name, Hawaiian Punch smells bright and tangy. Tropical notes of melon and pineapple waft up from the cured flowers, mingling with a sharp lemon zing. Refreshingly for those who are used to smoking Indica or hybrids, this strain is devoid of dank, skunky aromas. When combusted it burns with a smooth, easy smoke and tastes like clean citrus on the exhale. The leaves are a mossy shade of green and are shot through with curly light yellow and orange pistils. Icy white trichomes blanket the flowers, accounting for the strain’s psycho-activity and giving them a sticky texture; because of its high resin production.
Hawaiian Punch can have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its ability to engender deep focus can aid those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on single tasks. Its mood-elevating properties can temporarily alleviate the acute symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Physiologically, the strain’s anti-inflammatory properties may relieve everyday irritations like headaches and nausea.
