For this review, I tried out some Pink Kush that’s made by Laurentian Organic, a new craft cannabis company out of Quebec that prides itself on having all of their products cultivated in living soil and certified organic. Their cultivars are also grown in a hybrid greenhouse so that they can benefit from the sun’s rays.
This strain has been grown by multiple producers in 2020, like San Rafael 71’ and Top Leaf, which I had the chance to review as well.
Pink Kush is an Indica-dominant strain that comes with a range of THC between 18% and 24%; this specific batch came with 18.4% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD.
Lineage: Descendant of OG Kush (Other info is unknown)
Terpene Profile: Pinene, ocimene, caryophyllene
Packaging Details: Packaged on 10/20/2020 and reviewed/tested on 12/21/2020, exactly 62 days later. Lot# ALO20D0004
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, for $32.20 ($9.20/gram).
Let’s start with the moisture content AKA the “freshness” on this weed. To put it in simple terms, an RH of 59% is perfect, so the boost humidity pouch has done its job once more. Visually this looks like Pink Kush is supposed to look like it’s got an attitude about it; it’s intimidating, it’s dark, it’s dense.
The buds are dark green with a minimal amount of navy calyxes, there’s a small amount of brownish pistils in between, and it’s all covered with a heavy trichome blanket. There were 4 nugs in total squished in the container; 3 big ones and one small. Another plus? This came in, weighing in at 3.68 grams.
As time goes by and I write more of these reviews, giving something a perfect score becomes more difficult.
I had no choice but to do this in this case; I opened the freshly sealed container, and a wonderfully sweet vanilla and lavender smell that was heavily accented with pungent diesel notes came out; on top of all that, there was a spicy element to it all that thanks to the caryophyllene.
Once this Pink Kush was milled, the sweetness became even more apparent, the terps were all over the place on this, and the ocimene was not playing around.
The sweetness was a little less apparent in the flavor, it was still there, but it was more of a gassy/diesel flavor on the inhale, with some of the sweet and spicy mix left on the palate on the exhale. It was pleasant as well, but the taste was not comparable to the actual aroma.
The smoke was pretty smooth on this, but just like most Kush out there, you can definitely still feel it in the lungs.
Look, this is a very subjective area when it comes to reviews, so always take it with a grain of salt. This weed does exactly what Pink Kush is supposed to do, and it gets you high as a kite, so the low score may not make sense. It just isn’t my preferred type of high. Personally, I like the effects of Rio Bravo Strain more.
I would suggest smoking this in the evening after you’re done with all of the responsible tasks you need to accomplish because after smoking this, you won’t do them. Sit in your favorite spot on your couch, and make sure the remote is next to you because you won’t want to move much!
Laurentian Organic does it again with their Pink Kush strain, and right now, this is my favorite one from them without taking anything away from their Tremblant Kush and their Ethos Glue.
I hope they can keep up this great work as the quality standards get higher and higher, with consumers wanting the best possible flower (not everything is about THC levels). I would recommend this to everyday users; this may be a little too strong for beginners, but if you’re brave enough, then go for it!
