Pink Kush Shatter is extracted from a famous Canadian strain bred from OG Kush heritage. There certainly may be some RockStar or Bubba or another gassy indica tied in there as well. Since its emergence on the west coast of Canada, it has become famous and is now a big part of the global cannabis industry. The terpene profile is gassy, sweet with notes of pine and earthiness.

Many experienced cannabis users turn to Pink because of its reliable potency and noticeable effects. On the medicinal side, this strain may be helpful in treating some symptoms of chronic pain, nerve or muscle damage, stress or anxiety disorders, insomnia or troubles with appetite.
Does a dab feel different than a joint?
Dabbing extracts (also called concentrates) provides increased cerebral effects. Colours brighten, time warps and senses heighten. You may notice new sounds, smells or textures. If you are prone to anxiety, make sure to start slow, and use indica, not sativa. Higher concentrations of THC found in extracts will elevate the experience.
Medicinal and recreational users normally use extracts for the same reason. That reason is a more potent experience. To put it in perspective, shatter usually tests around 65-80% THC. The strongest flower (dried bud) available reach up to 30% THC. Using shatter with a vaping apparatus can help increase dosage for a medicinal patient. At the same time, you’re vaping, and not inhaling smoke. This makes dabbing a healthier option than smoking joints.
If this is your first time using concentrates, make sure to start slow. Doing a big dab your first time might make you green out, even if you’re accustomed to smoking joints. It’s the same thing with edibles. All of the different ingestion methods provide different experiences. Tolerance levels in one arena does not necessarily affect the others.
