Odor and Flavors
Not only does Pink Kush comes with potent THC, but it also packs a punch when it comes to its fragrance. It has an enticing fresh and floral note blending with its earthy odor. The scent of lush vanilla can also quickly fill a room.
Much of its aroma carries over to its smoke and the palate. Upon exhale, it boasts of a captivating sweetness with a hint of vanilla on the aftertaste. As if that is not enough, it also has a slight note of berry with a candy-like quality.
Like most hybrids, Pink Kush starts off with a cerebral high. Gentler than most, it can also be deceiving. Not too long after taking the first toke, it induces a euphoric buzz that is not only pleasant but can be quite uplifting. Used at the end of a stressful day, it is a fitting strain that sets the tone for a relaxing time ahead.
Pink Kush contains as much as 22% THC. With that amount, one can say it is insanely high. Still, it takes a little while before it unleashes its raw power. Instead, it begins by trickling down to the body. Gently, smoothly, it gradually brings users to full relaxation.
Often, during the early stages, the strain makes users feel so good that some may actually be sociable, chatty, and have bouts of giggles. However, as the body high intensifies, most end up sitting or lying quietly, lost in bliss. In no time at all, most users end up drifting off to dreamland without even realizing it.
Pink Kush is still cannabis. As such, there are adverse effects that growers can expect. For example, experience users have come to accept their throat feeling dry as a normal occurrence. Often, it may come accompanied by dry or red eyes.
Depending on individual tolerance, some people may have a mild headache or feel dizzy. Often, this occurs during the onset or when the effects start to intensify. A few people might also feel a little bit anxious. These conditions are temporary and should recede in a few hours.
Medical Use and Benefits
The use of cannabis is controversial. Although the FDA has never approved its use (smoking or vaping) for treatment of certain illnesses, medical users know better. While anecdotal, its pharmacological value is indisputable.
Being a heavy-hitting Indica that uplifts the spirit, it helps reduce stress. As users go into deep relaxation, it gives people a pause from depression and similar conditions. If only for a few hours, it offers users a reprieve from miserable thoughts and feelings.
It has compounds that soothe pains and aches including muscle spasms. In that sense, it helps by providing comfort without the need for synthetic or chemicals (drugs).
As most users end up sleeping, it is perfect for people who have trouble sleeping. Patients undergoing painful treatment, insomniacs, can certainly benefit and need all the rest they can get.
One thing about Pink Kush is that it promotes a healthy appetite. In other words, users are likely to have a degree of the munchies. Used in a tiny amount, it is possible for one to get up to eat food. However, use a little bit too much and most likely, users simply drift off to sleep and wake up starving for a hearty breakfast the next day.
Growing Pink Kush
A looker in a field of green, Pink Kush has bright green buds with pretty pink hairs under a weave of sugar-like trichomes. The pinkish color is usually due to temperature and genetics. Some growers also make sure to use only quality seeds and high-performing lights if cultivating in grow tents.
Pink Kush is not a hard plant to handle. As such, even beginners should be able to cultivate it successfully indoors or outdoors.
It has an indoor flowering period of 10 to 11 weeks. Although one can say it is 2 to 3 weeks longer than typical Indica plants, the reward at the end is certainly worth it as it can produce up to 500 grams per square meter.
Outdoors, it is best to cultivate Pink Kush in a dry and warm climate. The flowering period occurs during the last week of October with each plant able to produce a up to 700 grams of buds.
