Sativa Dominant Marijuana Hybrid Primal Punch

Primal Punch

This week we’re going ape and exploring Primal, also known as Primal Punch! This sativa dominant hybrid is a cross between Gorilla Glue #4 and Banana Punch and will have you wanting to swing on vines like George of the Jungle. There wasn’t a lot of information on the strain available online so I put in some extra hands-on research for this post. Though I knew there would be much work ahead of me I forged ahead ready to tackle the task. I’m a big fan of sativa strains for daytime medication and creativity boosts so I ganja-mped at the chance to deep dive into a bag or two of Bison’s Primal.

As I opened the package I was greeted with a whiff that was sweet and slightly citrusy giving it an almost sweet and sour at the same time smell. Lingering at the end you can smell a familiar earthy kush undertones. The buds were a yellow-green color and covered in a light frosting of trichomes. Primal’s flavor was slightly sweet and floral but smoky at the same time.  A spacey sativa leaner for sure, I found myself getting lost reading internet articles or working on one task but having ideas about another. After the initial spacey feeling toned down Primal allowed me to focus in on whatever I was working on. As my research continued throughout the week I found it best to relax the first twenty minutes after smoking it as any work I’d get done would be drawn out from the initial rush of ideas Primal pumped into my brain. While this strain isn’t swinging into my Top Ten, I am a fan as it’s tasty, energizing, and uplifting. This is a strain that has a relaxing yet energetic feeling to it which I love. Keeping me chill but not slowing me down at all. Others have also found the strain to be great for mental stimulation, relaxation, and the uplifting feeling.

Limonene, caryophyllene, and cedrene dominate the terpene profile of Primal Punch. Since we’ve explored two of these terpenes already let’s see-drene what’s going on with the third most dominant terpene of Primal. Cedrene is considered a secondary terpene in cannabis as it usually doesn’t appear in higher numbers. Like the name suggests it is often found in essential oils derived from cedar woods and has many therapeutic benefits, although current research in cedrene’s role in cannabis is limited. Cedrene has been used throughout history for different medicinal purposes because of its antibacterial, antiseptic, and astringent properties. It is also used to disinfect wounds, ease congestion, heal acne, and even repel insects! Most of the research involving this terpene has been done on cedarwood oil and has shown cedrene to have antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties, among others. More research into the terpene should also be done as there has been evidence of cedrene contributing to killing tumor cells in humans and that cedrene in combination with cedrol can help kill many types of cancer cells.
