Banana Purple Punch from Haven St. is an evenly balanced hybrid that was created by crossing Banana OG with Purple Punch resulting in a flower with a tropical twist.
Most users report this strain to smell like ripe bananas mixed with freshly cut pineapple and berries. In terms of appearance, Haven St. says the buds have deep purple tones that glisten with trichomes and light green hues. With close to 24% THC this one apparently packs a good punch.
So we’re curious how this compares to Qwest’s Banana OG or Table Top’s Purple Punch.
Check our review, rating and photos below.
The product arrived from Haven in a blue plastic container with a security lid. We popped the top off expecting a sweet tropical aroma but the smell released was closer to a mild watery grape Koolaid with a strong earthy note at the end. I think it’s safe to say Purple Punch’s genetics are alive and strong in this flower.
We dumped the contents out and noted that Haven still does not include a humidity shield inside the container. The buds were medium in size with a mix of light and dark green leaves, specks of purple and a moderate layer of trichomes. However the flower was quite dry and simply pressing it between our fingertips almost turned it to powder.
In terms of flavour profile, we found Haven’s Banana Purple Punch created a fresh grape Koolaid taste on inhale which really was enjoyable. However on exhale, there was a very strong earthy black pepper combo that felt harsh and was likely made worse by the dry state of the flower.
Listed with 23.7% THC content and a price tag of $35.95 for 3.5 grams, we found the most enjoyable part of Banana Purple Punch from Haven St. was the high. Best described as a moderately strong experience with a physically relaxing sensation combined with a mild mental fog. Overall another nice hybrid from this brand, however we still prefer Haven’s Secret Address just a tad more.
