Island Pink Kush
Island Pink Kush Genetics: Pink Kush x (speculative) Island Kush
Sometimes called just Island Pink, this is an indica strain created on Vancouver Island. A Pink Kush was bred with an unknown indica dominant hybrid strain. Some accounts say the other strain was called Island Kush, which is an OG Kush crossed with Hawaiian. It is generally accepted that whatever strain it was, it was an indica dominant hybrid. At the end of the day, one thing is for sure, is pairs well with Pink Kush. The flowers of this particular crop are small and dense. They are dark green in colour, and smell like piney fuel with lemon underneath.
All Pink Kush relatives are always reliably potent, and this particular crop is no exception. You can expect powerful sedative body effects, however this strain also provides a pulsing mental buzz. This is one of the things that makes this strain a little different than its Pink Kush parent. At the same time, this strain does exhibit that knockout power that is characteristic of Pink Kush genetics. There is definitely something in the effect that makes it different from a classic Pink Kush. It is slightly more cerebral than a straight Pink, with body effects that are still strong but under control.
This strain is excellent for use later in the day. Its potent body effects won’t have you going anywhere. Medical users seek Island Pink for a functional sedative stone. It can potentially help treat symptoms of insomnia, stress and chronic pain. For the recreational user, this is a slight twist on the classic Pink you know and love. It’s certainly worth trying this exotic indica strain from the Pacific Northwest. Canadian strains are among the best in the world, particularly kush varieties.
