Pink Kush, a relative of OG Kush, is one of the most sought-after strains out there. It’s exceptionally hard to grow, making it even more desirable. It has breathtaking purple and pink hues, which, if you know anything about cannabis, makes tokers yearn for it even more. This strain is a phenotype of OG Kush, and, as such, it’s an indica-dominant hybrid, with about a 90/10 ratio. This strain will put you to sleep after lighting it up, so don’t expect any energy after hitting this strain!
This strain is also sometimes called Pink Pussy strain, Pink Cadillac strain, Pink OG, Pink OG Kush, Pink Fig, Pink Lady strain, Pink Candy strain, or Pussy Kush.

This strain is definitely an indica-dominant hybrid. The hairs covering it, the high THC percentage and the sugary trichomes that grow on it are what make Pink Kush such a crowd pleaser. If you can find this strain, you'll definitely be one happy stoner. This is particularly true if you’re an indica lover. It has green buds with some pink and purple hues to it. The smell once it’s ground up will make most stoners salivate. Pink Kush is truly a top-shelf bud.
Pink Kush: indica or sativa?

Pink Kush is simply a phenotype of OG Kush, which is one of the heavy-weight indica-dominant hybrids of the cannabis community. OG Kush is a particularly popular strain for the same reasons that Pink Kush is a popular strain. Mostly its high yields and high THC percentages. You can read more about OG Kush here.
The average indica-dominant hybrid has around 13% THC inside it, whereas Pink Kush tests at around 20% on average. The top THC phenotypes have up to 22% THC in them. This isn’t quite on the same level as its relative, OG Kush. However, Pink Kush more than makes up for this in its flowery, vanilla taste.

Pink OG Kush pricePay attention to names here. "Pink OG Kush" is a dankenstein strain. This means that it is also a boutique strain. The problem with a lot of these strains is that they’re clone-only, or the seeds are highly protected. "Pink Kush," on the other hand, is offered by Barney’s Farm. These are one of the top Amsterdam seedbanks. This means that not only are the seeds available online, increasing the supply, but you can also go to Amsterdam to try this strain. Barney’s Farm normally sells all of their own strains in their coffee shop, so pop in and see for yourself. The price for this strain is about $15 a gram.
Pink Kush tasteYou’re going to want to crack out your flower vape for this one, because it’s a truly tasty strain. The best thing about flower vapes is that there’s no combustion of plant material when your vape, so the taste is much better. This, when coupled with the health benefits of smoking through a vaporiser, makes them a great choice. The taste profile of Pink Kush is:
Pink Kush oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.
There are other advantages of using a flower vape. The main advantage is that you can use the already vaped marijuana (or AVB as it’s known) to easily create edibles. Simply get your AVB (it will be a little bit brown) and mix it with either an oil or a fat, and then either cook it or eat it as is. The best method for this is to spread some butter onto some toast, and sprinkle a little bit of AVB onto it. Depending on the temperature you used to vape the original bud, is how potent the AVB will be. Please note: this stuff is pretty potent in general, so don’t overdo it! If you do find yourself feeling a bit too high, simply take a cold shower or drink a coffee (or both) and you should feel right as rain in no time!
You can also use any strain you like to create wax, shatter, edibles, etc. Some strains are superior to others, because of their flavours, or the number of trichomes they have. Pink Kush has both a lot of trichomes and a fantastic taste, making it a great choice for concentrates. It’s no small wonder that companies such as Heavy Hitters offer Pink Kush as one of their flavours.

Pink Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid, and it has a high THC percentage. This can either be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you want. If you’re looking for a medicine to help you sleep well or to control pain, then Pink Kush is your friend. If you’re looking for something to give you energy or to make you social, then look for a strain such as Sour Diesel.
Pink Kush flowering timePink Kush has a very long flowering time. In fact, it takes about 11 weeks to grow, which can feel like a very long time when you can see the trichomes forming and you just want to grind it up and give it a smoke. Trust us though, you should wait the full 11 weeks in order to ensure full potency.
Pink Kush Growing tipsPink Kush can be grown either indoors and outdoors, and will only grow to a relatively modest 1.2m. You will need low humidity, due to the dense buds. You may also need to support the plant a few weeks in, to ensure that the buds don’t droop.

Pink Kush is a dankenstein strain that is both hard to grow and incredibly sought-after. If Barney’s Farm doesn’t have the seeds in stock, it will be very hard to find this strain. However, if you do find this strain and manage to either grow it or smoke it in Amsterdam, you’ll be rewarded with a high trichome production, high THC percentage, heavy indica effects, with a high yield and a fantastic taste.
