It’s time for a Pink Kush strain review! This strain, AKA Pick Candy, Pink OG or Pink Cadillac, is a popular hybrid. It is especially favoured in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. We think its admiration can be linked to its ability to calm and ease one’s mind, while still delivering on a powerful high. This is due to an Indica dominance of 90%.

The remaining 10% of Sativa serves to enhance the happy, uplifting and euphoric effects of the Pink Kush strain. Another upside of this strain is in its looks. The bud is covered with thick layers of trichomes. It also has bright green and yellow hues and pink pistils, people describe it as looking like frosted cereal. Lastly, its buds are solid and dense and difficult to crack with one’s hands.

A Brief History

There is not much known about this strain’s history but it is generally understood that Barney’s Farm created the original Pink Kush. Legend has it that OG Kush is one of the strain’s parents. This is not considered a fact, as nobody is sure.

Pink Kush Strain Strain Review: Aroma and Taste

Pink Kush has a very distinct aroma in that it is punchy, yet pleasant as it has the perfect balance of spicy and sweet. It has an aroma of a woody and earthy base. Think of notes of resin, moss, bark, pine cones and bushes and roots. This is not surprising when considering the content of pinene in Pink Kush.

On the other hand, the beta-caryophyllene (also found in Squirt) content of the strain imparts the spicy notes of the aroma. This base is complimented by robust sweet berry and vanilla flavours that tend to persist in your mouth in a pleasurable way.
