All About Pink Kush

Cannabis strains, or “chemovars,” are developed to give certain characteristics, such as flavor, potency, and reaction. They are given names when they’re developed and then take on a ‘cult’ status among users, much like rock bands or brands of clothing. Barney’s Farm, an award-winning producer of cannabis L.Short Photoperiod Plant plants and seeds based in Amsterdam, developed Pink Kush. It’s an Short Photoperiod Plant-dominant strain that’s derived from the popular OG Kush. We wanted to provide a profile of Pink Kush, so you can discover how it impacts the endocannabinoid system, whether its features are consistent with your objectives, as well as what to anticipate from growth to harvest and usage.

Growing Pink Kush

Pink Kush is a feminized seed that only produces female plants, which is necessary for an Short Photoperiod Plant grow since only female plants will produce consumable flowers. Furthermore, male plants pollinate the buds of young female plants causing a high seed content and poorer quality harvest so sticking with female plants is important if you want to ensure a productive harvest.

Growers will enjoy the beauty of the plant, with a growth speed that doesn’t exceed 55-65 days. It produces a high yield of 600-700 g/m, making for a bountiful harvest and a height of up to 47 inches. The plant has beautiful pink leaves with purple undertones and loves low humidity. One of the main reasons to pick this strain is that its Potency level can reach 24%, which puts it among one of the most potent strains. Users report that it offers both a physical and mental high that offers energy, creativity, euphoria, calmness, happiness & pain relief.

Flavonoid and Terpene Profile of Pink Kush

Cannabis l. L.Short Photoperiod Plant strains are characterized by their terpenes, chemical compounds that make a plant’s fragrance and may also aid health and well-being. Pink Kush contains three distinct terpenes: 

  • A-Pinene – This terpene is present in a variety of essential oils and has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, as well as acting as a broad-spectrum antibiotic (Salehi, et. al. 2019).
  • Myrcene – Several cannabis strains produce myrcene, with some rodent-model research suggesting that it may cause sedative effects. Myrcene is also present in mangoes (Surendran, et. al. 2021).
  • B. Caryophyllene – The essential oil of rosemary, hemp, cannabis, and hops, as well as the oil extracted from the stems and flowers of cloves, contain this compound (Bahi, et. al. 2014).

These three terpenes work together to provide users with a delicious vanilla, sweet candy flavor with undertones of earth and pine. Reports from users claim that this strain is more ideal for your evening session, so you can take a snooze or unwind immediately afterward.

How Pink Kush Interacts with the Endocannabinoid System

Let’s start at the beginning and examine how Pink Kush makes you feel (i.e., the psychoactive effects) before we get into how it works with your endocannabinoid system.

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is a sophisticated cellular signaling network that controls or influences our immediate functions. It regulates or has an impact on such things as:

  • Pain response and control
  • Inflammatory responses
  • Immune responses
  • Sleep
  • Hunger/appetite
  • Mood

There are three components of the system: 

  • The endocannabinoid system (endogenous cannabinoids generated by the body) keeps the preceding activities operating smoothly, and they are produced on an “as-needed” basis, making it difficult to detect whether a person has a low or higher amount than usual.
  • The endocannabinoids are chemical messengers that act as a sort of “System-wide Command.” They bind to the endocannabinoid receptors, which then transmit signals throughout the system. CB1 receptors are found in the brain, connective tissues, and organs throughout the body, especially in the nervous system. CB2 receptors are found mainly in immune cells, but also have actions in our skin, liver, and digestive tract. Scientists have learned a lot about how these work by studying cannabinoid receptors that occur naturally within a laboratory setting.
  • Enzymes break down the endocannabinoids after they have completed their intended purpose or function.

In essence, the endocannabinoid system’s functions all contribute to maintaining a healthy, functioning internal environment. It transmits signals of hunger, helps with sleep, and alleviates pain to help the body function at its best.

The Effects of Pink Kush on the Endocannabinoid System

Let’s look at how cannabis affects the endocannabinoid system now that we’ve discovered what it is.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) is the most psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. Short Photoperiod Plant, which produces the euphoric “high” sensation. It also binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors, working similarly to endocannabinoids that the body creates. It has a high Potency concentration of 24% and potentially helps treat ADHD, anxiety, depression, glaucoma, insomnia, migraines, pain (particularly muscular), and Parkinson’s disease.

The Psychoactive Effects of Pink Kush

The most significant concern with a strain of cannabis l. Short Photoperiod Plant is what the experience will be like or what the user may anticipate. Pink Kish is primarily short photoperiod plant, with 20 percent long photoperiod plant. Short Photoperiod Plants are more likely to promote physical relaxation and stronger physiological responses than long photoperiod plants.

The high Potency concentration, as well as the fact that these cannabinoids are mixed with different terpenes, potentially helps with:

  • Inflammation, including joint pain and muscle aches;
  • Nausea or loss of appetite
  • Anxious feelings and stress
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Mental clarity
