I really just want to try strains that I never have. As a reviewer, it’s become my mission to find and sample as much variety as possible. Lucky for me, Bedford Grow has a seemingly limitless list of strains running through Illinois at any time. This new to me sampling from Maribis Springfield is Spiked Punch.
Spiked Punch is a slightly indica hybrid cross of Purple Punch and Larry OG. This batch of flower tested at 22.24% THCA and 23.56% total cannabinoids. The most prevalent terpenes were β-Caryophyllene, Limonene, and α-Humulene.
These popcorn flowers were dense with a deep forest green color, enhanced by some splashes of deeper purple. The trichome character was well developed and visible with the eye. The tight density of these buds was genetic, and the dry and cure highlighted that nicely.
The aroma in the jar was light and sweet with notes of berry, lavender, chamomile, fresh cut grass, and citrus peel appearing over a rich cinnamon tone that tied everything together.
The smoke carried the light berry and lavender well and revealed grape flavors on the exhale. The flavor was light but remained complex, rewarding repeated explorations.
The only indicator I found of the indica genetics were the tingly body buzz that helped with my joint pain. Mentally, Spiked Punch left me creative, open, and clearheaded.
I became social and talkative, even at higher doses, making this the perfect strain for an evening out or even heading into work. The balance of strong pain relief and open headspace make for a best of both worlds hybrid.
