Budtender Strain of the Month: Pink Kush

Budtender Strain Of The Month: Pink Kush - True North Cannabis Co

Want something pink without paying the pink tax? We have just the thing for you!

Pink Kush is an amazingly potent and relaxing indica-dominant hybrid, believed to be a relative of the legendary OG Kush. Just like the OG, Pink Kush is known for its powerful euphoria-inducing effects, accompanied by a sweet and floral flavour profile.

Get ready to be tickled pink with more Pink Kush strain info, including its origin, effects, and where to purchase it below!

A Brief History of Pink Kush

The Pink Kush weed strain may look vibrant, but its past is shrouded in mystery. It has Greek Mythology vibes in that no one knows its exact lineage, but more serious cannabis enthusiasts believe it to be the cool cousin (or child) of OG Kush.

Just like its origin, it’s hard to verify the indica-sativa ratio of the strain. Some Pink Kush cultivars like the ones from Barney’s Farm and Pure Sunfarms have a ratio of 80% indica to 20% sativa, while others are a bit more indica-leaning with a 90:10 ratio. Some may even classify as 100% indica, which just goes to show how suitable this strain is for evening or nighttime use.

Also known as Pink OG, this strain has become a Canadian favourite for its potent effects and delicious taste. It’s not just a best-seller at True North Cannabis Co., it was also named last year’s top-selling strain in all of Ontario!

Pink Kush Strain Profile

Don’t let the pretty pink colour fool you! Pink Kush weed strains have a relatively high THC content, which can range anywhere between 18% to 25%. Can’t get enough of this cotton-candy indica-dominant hybrid? Here’s what you need to know about its appearance, aroma, flavours, and terpenes!


It’s obvious that Pink Kush is an exceptional strain from the first glance. Its buds are like little nugget jewels, densely packed with frosty trichomes and shimmering like Cullen vampires on a sunny day.

They’re so green they put emeralds to shame, with just a hint of purple. And, yes, we hear you. If it’s so green why is it called Pink Kush? The Pink Kush strain actually gets its name from the pink hairs—the pistils—that cover its green nugs. As the plant matures, the pink pistils turn from white or cream to pink or purple. And that’s pretty dope!

Aroma and Flavours:

The Pink Kush strain is pretty, but it’s not about to be accused of having no personality. Take a whiff, and you’ll be transported to a floral wonderland with sweet and earthy undertones. It has a complex and enticing aroma that combines notes of pine, fir, flowers, vanilla, and candy, with a hint of citrus or berry undertones.

But the real party begins when you taste it! It’s a flavour fiesta, with hints of sweetness and a sprinkle of floral fairy dust. The smoke is smooth and creamy—inhale for a taste of sweet vanilla and candy, exhale for hints of pine and spice. The aftertaste is pleasant and lingering.

Terpene Profile:

Time to meet the flavour fairies—the terpenes! These natural compounds are the secret sauce behind Pink Kush’s strain effects and aroma. They’re the real MVPs, and here’s the lineup:

  • Pinene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Linalool
  • Limonene
  • Humulene

Pink Kush Strain Effects

The effects of this strain are like a spa day for your mind and body. It’s all about calm, euphoria, and relaxation, giving off a gentle body buzz, like a massage without the masseuse.

Pack a bowl of the Pink Kush strain if you want to unwind and relax in bed after a long day or enjoy a cozy night in with your friends or partner. Beginner or not, start low and go slow as Pink Kush can pack a (sleepy) punch. It can also induce a strong case of the munchies, so stock up on snacks before you kick back for the night—fair warning!

How Pink Kush is Grown

Let’s talk about how this showstopper comes to life! Pink Kush is a diva in flavour, but it’s one of the most beginner-friendly strains to grow. It thrives both indoors and outdoors, but the seeds do best in a warm, dry climate with low humidity.

The best part is Pink Kush weed strains can be grown in both soil and hydroponics. It’s resistant to most common moulds and parasites and produces high yields. The flowering time typically lasts for about nine to 10 weeks, but trust us—these plants are worth the wait.

A Similar Strain Worth Trying

Now that you’ve fallen for Pink Kush, let’s introduce you to its equally fabulous cousin, Purple Kush! This strain is a pure indica strain with a high THC content that’s sure to have you relaxed and blissed out.

Purple Kush serves up a sweet and earthy flavour profile, with a sugary grape-like taste that may remind some of sweet dessert wine or purple cough syrup (in the best way possible). Similar to Pink Kush it also has that couch-lock effect, so if you ever run out, Purple Kush is a great sub!
