Island Pink Kush
As a derivative of Pink Kush, Island Pink Kush is a potent, powerful strain. With beautiful, dense buds and bright, pastel-pink pistils popping up throughout the bud’s surface, this strain’s appearance almost resembles a tropical sunset itself! A silver dusting of trichomes covering the surface completes the ensemble. With an average THC content of 19-21%, Pink Island Kush is no walk in the park, despite its idyllic name.
While the exact percentage is still unknown, many speculate that Island Pink Kush has an 80/30 indica/sativa split. With such a strong indica heritage, Island Pink Kush is extremely effective at treating and alleviating a variety of pains and conditions.
Island Pink Kush effects begin with a sedative wave of physical relaxation that gently washes over your body after the first inhale. Your limbs will start to get heavier and you’ll find yourself sinking deeper and deeper into your couch as couch lock slowly creeps in. As soon as you’re comfortable, this strain’s sativa lineage makes its presence known through mild cerebral stimulation. You’ll slowly feel your lips curl into a smile and despite being near sedated, you’ll feel incredibly sociable and euphoric.
With such an incredible suite of effects, Island Pink Kush has been dubbed by many to be known as “the getaway strain” – the perfect choice when you just want to get away from it all.
