Pink Kush: Indica or Sativa?

This strain is definitely an Indica-dominant hybrid. The pink hairs covering it, the high THC percentage, and the sugary trichomes that grow on it are what makes Pink Kush Weed Strain 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 weed strain genetics 

Pink Kush is simply a phenotype of OG Kush, which is one of the heavy-weight indica-dominant hybrids found in the cannabis community. OG Kush is a particularly popular strain for the same reasons that Pink Kush is a popular strain. Consumer reviews laud its high yields and high THC percentages, which lead to some particularly enjoyable side effects including relaxing body effects including relief from chronic pain.

 vaporizer kandypens portable

One of the best ways to enjoy the flavors and effects of a quality strain like Pink Kush is through a well-made vaporizer like the MIVA 2 from Kandypens.

Precise temperature control gives you the power to set the hybrid convection and conduction heating system to your desired temp. This means you'll be able to enjoy your herb exactly how you like it.


Pink Kush THC percentage

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. While Pink Kush isn’t quite on the same level as its relative, OG Kush, this marijuana strain more than makes up for this in its flowery, vanilla taste.

Pink OG Kush price

Pay attention to names here. "Pink OG Kush" is a dankenstein strain. This means that it is also a boutique marijuana strain. The problem with a lot of these strains is that they’re clone-only, or the seeds are highly protected. "Pink Kush Weed Strain" may be difficult to find, but is offered by Barney’s Farm in the Netherlands, or you may be able to find it in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Barney's Farm is 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 marijuana 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 taste

You’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 vaporizer, makes them a great choice. The taste profile of Pink Kush is:
  • Flowery
  • Sweet
  • Earthy
  • Vanilla


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 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 flavors, 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 flavors.

Pink Kush flowering time 

Pink 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 tips

Pink 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 seeds

Barney’s Farm, a reputable seedbank from Amsterdam, often has this seed in stock. Just check their site to see if they have it!

Pink Kush yield 

Despite the long wait, Pink Kush's yield is good, with a yield of 600-700 outdoor, and the same yield for an indoor grow.
