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.

- Substrate: Ugro Coco Pure Air

Aromas and flavours of Purple Punch x Do-Si-Dos (Organoleptic test)
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.
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!!!
Effects of Purple Punch x Do-Si-Dos (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.

This variety is ideal for those seeking to:
