Indica-dominant Pink Kush is widely renowned for its perceived ability to provide a sense of calm and physical relaxation. The strain goes by a string of nicknames, including Pick Candy, Pink OG, and Pink Cadillac. Pink Kush remains an immensely popular hybrid, especially in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.
The experts at Barney’s Farm created the original Pink Kush plants. Although we don’t know much about the strain’s parents, breeders assure us that Pink Kush is 90% pure indica.
Pink Kush’s genetics remain shrouded in mystery, but many believe that OG Kush is one of the strain’s parents. According to legend, Florida growers originated OG Kush when they crossed an unknown California strain with Lemon Thai, ChemDog, and a pure Hindu Kush. OG Kush endows Pink Kush with its mixed head and body effects, a skunky lemon aroma, and powerful stress-busting properties.
Pink Kush buds have the look of an ultra-sweet, frosted kid’s cereal or a delicate pastry covered in powdered sugar. Bright green and yellow hues stand out in sharp contrast with striking pink pistils. Some Pink Kush cultivars feature such a generous dusting of trichomes that you can barely see the pink hairs passing through. With the strain’s Kush genetics and abundance of trichomes, Pink Kush makes delicious hash and other concentrates.
The THC level of Pink Kush ranges around 18-22%. Some varieties can even possess up to 1% CBD, CBG, or CBN, which may add to the strain’s relaxing properties.
Pink Kush has a woody, earthy base with pronounced, sweet berry notes. The buds emit a pungent citrus aroma with strong vanilla overtones. If you vape Pink Kush on lower settings, you’ll notice subtle hints of pine and spice from the pinene and beta-caryophyllene content.
Users have said that Pink Kush is a good choice for meditation or getting into the flow of creative work.
Pink Kush is mold-resistant and easy to grow both indoors and outdoors. The hearty seeds germinate quickly and need little coaxing. Although Pink Kush is fantastic for beginning gardeners, the plants like more nutrients than other strains and insist on a pH of no more than 6.5. Growers will have to resist the urge to get impatient as the strain takes at least 10 to 11 weeks to start flowering. But when Pink Kush finally blossoms, patient farmers will be rewarded with high yields of dense, sticky buds.
Pink Kush plants grow short and react well to topping, making them excellent for cultivating indoors. Despite the strain’s preference for a dry climate, the plants easily adapt to hydroponic methods. Most growers love Pink Kush’s pleasant smell, but the aroma can get a bit overpowering. You might want to install an extra exhaust fan to avoid attracting unwanted attention to your grow.
Although Pink Kush resists mold, the plants don’t like too much humidity. You’ll still want to maintain ideal temperatures and monitor your airflow to prevent light mildew growth. Ensuring ample air-circulation and ventilation is critical with bushy Pink Kush plants.
Patient growers will see indoor yields of around 18 ounces per square meter. With a bit of low-stress training and pruning, Pink Kush plants make a fine choice for Sea-of-Green and ScRoG growing methods.
Pink Kush plants do best in a warm, dry environment. Luckily, the strain resists most pests, making it an ideal choice for outdoor growing. With the proper handling, Pink Kush plants can produce yields of up to 25 ounces each when grown outdoors. Pink Kush thrives under natural sunlight and grows thick, bushy branches during the vegetative stage.
Pink Kush has a lot in common with other OG varieties and high myrcene indica strains, such as:
If you’re searching for a strain that gets the job done every time you need it, consider picking up some Pink Kush.
Pink Kush’s dessert-like flavor delights the taste buds, but be careful to go low and slow because her flowers pack a punch. The strain’s high myrcene content can give you a serious case of couch-lock, making Pink Kush a better choice for evening use.
Pink Kush makes a stellar addition to any garden. The plants are undemanding and resist both mold and pests like a champ. If you watch your humidity levels and pH, Pink Kush plants will bless you with a high yield of terpene-rich nugs. You’ll be glad you have the fruits of your Pink Kush harvest in your first-aid kit.

Also known as “bubblers,” “moofs,” or simply “water pipes,” bongs are almost synonymous with cannabis consumption and one of the most practical ways to smoke marijuana flower.
Glass bongs use water to cool smoke and filter out some of the harmful carcinogens. Most bongs are designed for use with dry herb, but some bongs come with adaptor kits so you can use them for concentrates.
High-quality bong manufacturers typically use borosilicate glass, which can withstand extreme changes in temperature without breaking. Some bongs also have components made from quartz.
Although bongs come in a wide array of shapes and sizes, they share specific characteristics, including:
Some bongs also come with a carb hole that must be covered during the draw and opened to inhale the smoke.
The most basic bong consists of a straight glass tube with a flat base for stability. Straight tube bongs are ideal for fast rips, but they tip over more easily than bongs with wider bases.
Beaker and bubble base bongs tend to be more stable than straight tube bongs. These larger based bongs allow for more filtration and cooling, but they tend to draw slower.
Bent-neck bongs help to prevent used bongwater from entering your mouth when you draw.
Ice bongs have special notches to hold pieces of ice along the chamber. The ice helps to cool the water further, providing a smoother hit.
Scientific bongs use various mechanisms to provide extra filtration. However, these types of bongs typically draw slower and can be harder to clean. Scientific bongs usually come in shapes that resemble laboratory equipment.
Some examples are recyclers and percolators. Recyclers have two chambers to separate the dirty and clean water. Percolators come in a variety of forms, such as donuts, trees, eggs, discs, coils, honeycombs, and showerheads.
Glass-blowers create artistic bongs from coloured borosilicate glass, often incorporating precious metals. Artistic bongs come in almost any form imaginable and act as conversation pieces and collector’s items as well as functional bongs.
Mini-bongs can come in any of the above styles, but they offer a more portable size.
Bubblers are hybrids between a pipe and a bong. They also use water to filter the smoke, but you can carry them in your pocket like a pipe.
A high-quality glass bong can last many years when taken care of properly. You may want to store your bong when not in use. You can use salt and alcohol for weekly cleanings and a lemon/water solution to remove tough stains. Alternatively, you can purchase a commercial bong cleaner.
Ever since recreational cannabis was legalized in Canada, consumers and brands have been searching for new and innovative ways of consuming it. From gummies to vape cartridges, there are now dozens of ways to enjoy a kick of THC or a soothing dose of CBD, without necessarily smoking. Cannabis-infused beverages are a relatively new addition to the cannabis market and they promise to be the next most delicious thing since space cookies.
But what are cannabis beverages and how do they work?
Technically, drinkable cannabis products are a subcategory of cannabis edibles.
They are made by simply infusing a liquid with cannabis extracts blended with an emulsifying agent (usually some kind of oil, since cannabinoids are not water-soluble). While that addition made early iterations of cannabis drinkables a bit inconsistent, recent technologies have allowed of much more palatable results.
Beverages come in a wide assortment of formats, including sparking water, bagged and loose leaf teas, sodas, as well as powders. These products usually contain THC and/or CBD that are activated and immediately effective -which makes them more sensible than dried bud that needs to be decarboxylated (combusted or heated).
Due to the psychoactive nature of THC, it is usually infused in light beverages such as coffee, tea and soda. Alcoholic drinks are not currently available, since THC doesn’t mix well with alcohol, and the combination can produce unwanted (and potentially dangerous) side effects.
When purchasing THC-infused beverages, make sure to go for a product with 5mg of THC or less, just to be safe.
CBD, the “yang” to THC’s “ying”, is much more flexible in its use since it is not psychoactive. Therefore, it can even be infused in alcoholic drinks. It is unlikely you’d ever suffer from a CBD overdose, but in larger doses it can make you feel lethargic. If that’s not your end goal, it might be a good idea to practice moderation.
We mentioned above that cannabis beverages are subsets of edible products, and as such, they get absorbed through digestion. If you’ve ever eaten a cannabis brownie, you can guess how it works. Due to the slow onset time of edibles, it may take up to a couple of hours until the active ingredient kicks in. In addition, the effects last longer as well (up to 10 hours).
The potency of cannabis drinks varies depending on the active ingredient and the amount the product contains. The legal limit for drink products is 10mg for THC, while there is no such provision for non-psychoactive CBD. You can check the potency of each product on the label to make sure you’re getting the right one for you.
When consuming THC products, users -and especially newbies- should exercise caution. As stated previously, the effects of edible products are not immediate. Therefore, you should start slowly and increase the dosage incrementally after a few hours. When ingested, THC is far more powerful, thus increasing the risk of unwanted side effects. In any case, it is always good to go with a product containing about 2-3mg of THC and have some CBD handy to counteract the high.
According to a study published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “Weight, metabolism, gender, and eating habits also contribute to how soon and for how long someone will feel intoxicated following oral ingestion”.
For those who like the effects of cannabis but hate smoking or vaping, edibles and beverages provide an excellent (and tastier) alternative. Additionally, beverages serve more than one purpose: you can quench your thirst or kick back and relax with a drink, while at the same time enjoying the positive effects of cannabis.
However, there are a few negatives to consuming drinkables. Beverages and juices are notorious for increasing your caloric intake without providing much nutritional value. Also, since drinking is a much more accessible intake method, the user can be led to overconsumption.
Let’s assume you’ve found the dispensary you’d like to buy from. What now?
Some things to review before ordering are:
The good news about cannabis drinks is that they are made from distilled cannabinoids and therefore do not carry the unpleasant grassy taste of raw weed. Most products are flavored or completely neutral. Moreover, some products get their taste by including terpenes in their ingredients. Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in a variety of plants, and they are responsible for their distinct flavor. For example, the pungent smell of mango is mainly due to the high concentration of a terpene called myrcene, which can also be found in cannabis.
According to the Federal Cannabis Act, cannabis possession is permitted within legal limits. People of minimum age and above can possess up to 30 grams of cannabis or 2,100 grams of liquid. Cannabis-infused beverages count against your quota, so make sure to buy within the legal range. Most online and physical shops will let you know if your purchase surpasses the legal public possession limit.
Cannabis drinks are a great idea if you want to enjoy the effects of cannabis without putting your lungs at risk. However, as with most things in life, moderation is key -especially in the beginning. Do not hesitate to ask your budtender or your doctor if you have any concerns and always remember the golden rule of cannabis edibles: start low and go slow.
Although researchers have been studying cannabidiol (or CBD for short) since the ’70s, 2018 marked a turning point in its history: The 2018 Cannabis Act in Canada and the historic 2018 Farm Bill in the US provided clear legal frameworks for the regulation of hemp, starting a period of renewed interest in phytocannabinoids and particularly CBD.
This non-psychoactive component of the Cannabis sativa plant leaped into the spotlight after several highly-publicized cases of epileptic children whose symptoms were eased by CBD came to the public’s attention.
Subsequent research has shown CBD’s potential ability to help with a great variety of ailments, including:
Although further research is needed to verify CBD’s therapeutic uses, the compound’s potential is staggering, and interest in hemp-derived products has soared to an all-time high. Consumers can choose from a plethora of CBD-infused products, including oil, capsules, chocolate, beer, and even toothpicks!
CBD creams and topicals are some of the most popular items on the market today. Consumers increasingly turn to CBD-infused creams and salves for relief from discomforts ranging from skin problems to joint and muscle pain.
Let’s take a closer look at CBD topicals and their uses, so you can decide if CBD creams, lotions, and salves are right for you.
CBD creams are made by infusing CBD isolates or distillates with a carrier oil, such as:
Since CBD will not dissolve in water-based products, CBD creams and topicals must have an oily base.
A typical CBD cream might contain CBD isolate, full-spectrum CBD, or broad-spectrum distillate. Isolates contain pure CBD, usually around 98%. Full-spectrum CBD includes all of the components from the hemp plants to take advantage of the entourage effect. Full-spectrum CBD includes up to the legal limit of .3% THC. Broad-spectrum distillates preserve most components of the hemp plant, except delta-9 THC.
According to research dating back to the early 1990s, CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system, a set of transmitters that aid the body in achieving balance, or homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system helps to balance essential functions, such as:
When applied topically, CBD is absorbed into the body and binds to several endocannabinoid receptors on your skin.
Recent research has discovered that CBD influences the TRPV1 receptor, which relates to pain and inflammation.
Please note that CBD is not a cure for conditions relating to inflammation and pain. Sore knees showing signs of osteoarthritis won’t grow new cartilage when you apply CBD cream. Instead, CBD topicals can help you manage the pain and swelling in a particular joint.
Consumers are choosing CBD creams and other topicals for numerous skin conditions, including:
Although CBD can’t provide a cure for these skin conditions, many consumers report that CBD creams have improved their symptoms.
The main difference between CBD salves, lotions, and creams is the consistency of the ointment. Topical manufacturers formulate each of their CBD products differently depending upon their intended use.
CBD lotions have a higher water-to-oil ratio than other topicals. Lotions have a light, non-greasy consistency that makes it easy to rub into the skin’s pores.
CBD Creams are thicker than lotions, but they also absorb into the skin faster. Creams typically use a capturing agent, such as a petroleum product, to hold the CBD against the skin and retain moisture.
Salves are similar to creams but lack water. Manufacturers of CBD salves usually use a base of oil and wax. Serums are concentrated forms of skincare products that are allowed to evaporate.
To help with joints, massage CBD cream directly into the affected area. You may also want to gently massage CBD cream on areas of facial discoloration and inflammation. Try the products as directed for two weeks, and consider keeping a journal or photo diary to note what happens to the problem areas.
If you’re happy with the outcome, you may want to increase your CBD topical use frequency. Remember, CBD cream contains a host of antioxidants and vitamins, so it’s a terrific way to support sagging skin and even reduce the signs of wrinkles.
You can also use CBD cream as a preemptive treatment. If you’re getting ready for the gym, dancing, or a long hike, you can apply CBD cream to your knees or feet. After your exercise, you may want to reapply CBD cream for a post-workout massage.
Most people who experience an allergic reaction to CBD cream respond to the carrier oil rather than the CBD isolate or distillate. You can avoid unwanted skin rashes by choosing a hypoallergenic CBD cream. Before putting CBD cream on your face to address inflammation, discoloration, or thinning skin, you should try a small test spot on your wrist or ankle.
As you can see, CBD creams and topicals may be a valuable part of maintaining healthy and glowing skin. Before choosing a CBD topical, decide if you would like a product containing CBD isolate, broad-spectrum CBD, or full-spectrum CBD. Next, determine whether a lotion, cream, salve, or serum would best suit your needs. Lastly, select a hypoallergenic CBD cream and test on a small area, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Another factor to consider is whether you would prefer an unscented or scented CBD cream. Many CBD manufacturers include essential oils in their topical products. Lavender can soothe your mind while supporting sore joints, and peppermint can brighten your thoughts as you massage a sore muscle. If you can’t tolerate scents, you’ll also find plenty of unscented CBD products.

If you’ve ever smoked a joint, then you already know what a pre-roll is. Indeed, pre-rolls are simply pre-packaged marijuana joints. Customers who buy pre-rolls don’t have to worry about grinding buds, lining paper, and rolling a joint. With pre-rolls, all of that tedious work is already taken care of, which means you could enjoy a refreshing smoke on-demand.
Considering how convenient pre-rolls are, it’s no surprise they’ve become increasingly common in the marijuana industry. There are, however, a few things customers should consider before they buy a pre-rolled joint.
Right out of the gate, we should mention that most pre-rolls don’t contain premium-grade nugs. The majority of companies that put out pre-rolls rely heavily on trichome-rich shake rather than ground marijuana buds.
For those who aren’t aware, shake refers to plant materials that “shake off” of cannabis nugs while they’re in storage. Even though shake isn’t the result of hand grinding, it’s usually full of potent cannabinoids and terpenes. Since shake is still perfectly smokable, many manufacturers like to repurpose it in pre-rolls to avoid unnecessary waste.
Please note: there is a significant difference between shake and trim. Unlike shake, trim refers to any cannabis leaves with some traces of trichomes (e.g., sugar leaves). While good trim isn’t entirely useless, it often has a diminished trichome count versus shake.
Unsurprisingly, many cannabis purists claim pre-rolls can never match the quality of a hand-rolled joint. Since most marijuana pre-rolls contain shake or trim, critics sometimes claim they’re the equivalent of “cannabis fast food”—cheap and convenient, but low-quality.
However, the reality of this situation is a bit more complicated. Like any other product, pre-rolls are only as good as the company that’s producing them. While there are some cheaply made pre-rolls on the market, there are also plenty of fantastic pre-rolls with superb shake.
As with any other product, you have to research your company’s reputation to make an informed decision. You could also slice into one “sacrificial” pre-roll to examine whether the manufacturer uses high-quality shake or a bunch of worthless stems.
Pre-rolls are ideal for new cannabis users looking for a simple way to test recreational or medical strains. Since pre-rolls are so user-friendly, they’re an easy way for cannabis newbies to “test the waters.”
But even if you’re a pro at rolling joints, cannabis pre-rolls have a lot to offer. For instance, if you want a hassle-free way to sneak a smoke into your day, then pre-rolls might be the way to go. Plus, marijuana pre-rolls are a fantastic addition to any ganja-themed party setting.
