April’s Leafly HighLight is Cherry Punch: Pack a party bowl
We can tell no lies: America’s 45 million-plus weed smokers are packing lots of party bowls of Cherry Punch this April, from San Francisco to Boston. It’s a perfect strain for Spring Breaks, Coachella, and 4/20 party planning.
Cherry Punch’s balanced, hybrid, medium-to-high-THC effects are versatile and friendly to newbies. For the heads, there’s plenty of Cherry Punch flower, carts, badder, shatter, and rosin that slaps.
You know you’ll love the taste—Cherry Punch is the Leafly HighLight for April.
Cherry Punch has 60 reviews on Leafly and an average score of 4.5 out of 5. With a really popular sweet, berry, cherry smell, its balanced effects lean a tad indica.
One Leafly reviewer said, “Good relaxing strain with a good (but not too intense) head high. I played almost 40 hours of Fallout 4 on this strain when I had Covid.”
“This strain makes me jam out to music so hard I didn’t want to do anything else,” said another.
And for all the grown women—Cherry Punch puts in work in the bedroom:
Are you a THC lightweight? Start small with this solid 20% THC strain—it can make novices uncomfortably high, instead of chill.
How much does Cherry Punch cost?
Cherry Punch is a workhorse cultivar grown at scale from coast to coast, with plenty of flower varieties and extracts to choose from. California eighths can run $25, while Colorado has $40 ounces of Cherry Punch smalls.
It’s a commodity crop in Oregon, where grams of badder run $22. In newer legal states, demand and prices remain high. Cherry Punch runs $50 an eighth in Boston, or $60 for a half-gram cart in medical Florida.
Cherry Punch flower prices across the US:
|1 gram of flower||$6||$11||$16|
Cherry Punch seeds
Released in 2017, major California breeding team Symbiotic Genetics created Cherry Punch by crossing Cherry AK-47 with their outdoor workhorse strain Purple Punch.
You can get Cherry Punch seeds as of press time from online seller Seeds of Horror for $175. That’s a good move if you want giant bags of Cherry Punch for Thanksgiving dinner.
I’d also look into a similar strain, In-House Seeds’ Black Cherry Punch (Black Cherry Pie x Purple Punch).
Cherry Punch awards
Breeder Symbiotic Genetics‘ strains have won entire shelves of trophies over the years. A Cherry Punch took 3rd place in The Emerald Cup’s ‘Outdoor – Private’ category in 2018.

Other highlights this April
Can’t pick Cherry Punch up near you? Roll with it—here are three related picks you’ll love.
Forbidden Fruit just took home a Spannabis trophy in 2022—that shows the staying power of its classic parents, Crockett’s Tangie and Jigga’s Cherry Pie. You’ll never forget this flower’s first bite—sweet, sour, pungent grapefruit that nibbles on your nose. Its hybrid high-THC effects lean more calming than Cherry Punch.
Strawberry Banana has analogous, versatile, hybrid effects to Cherry Punch—just with different fruit smells and parentage. It’s DNA Genetics’ cross of Banana Kush to a strawberry type of Bubble Gum. Leafly’s oldest review of it comes from 2014, but it’s still charging hard into 2022.
Here’s the wild card. Find Leafly’s Strain of Year 2021, Dosidos, but crossed to Jigga’s Cherry Pie by Midwest Best. This should be super pungent and potent. Lit Farms has Cherry Dosidos S2 seeds for sale, and the influential Hendrx Nursery offers clones of it.
And that’s it for the Leafly HighLight for April. Hope you have a great month, with a cherry on top.
