Pine Tar Kush
This strain carries on the legend in its name. A direct descendant of the world-renowned Kush strain, Pine Tar Kush is a pure indica hybrid bred from Pakistani landraces and distributed by the professional breeders over at Old Dreams Genetics. Notorious and named after its noticeable strong pine tree scent and its layers of icky sticky resin goodness, the strain is well-loved amongst the cannabis community for its euphoric high and effects. The Pine Tar Kush is a “feel good” type of strain with its relaxing high for recreational smokers looking to chill out and for the same calm and soothing effects proves itself useful for medical users.
To be expected of pure indica strains, Pine Tar Kush is more suited for nighttime usage as it brings on a range of relaxing effects that can help put you to sleep. It does start off with feelings of elation and happiness and could even sharpen your sense of focus for some time if you have any last minute or end of day tasks you need to finish before hitting the hay. A buzzing body high will start to creep throughout your body downwards from your head. Because of its sedative-like relaxation, Pine Tar Kush can prove useful for a variety of medical issues including chronic pains and aches, PMS cramps, inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders, or those struggling with insomnia. The soothing high mixed with the feelings of euphoria can also help with depression, stress, PTSD and anxiety. Bouts of giggles as well as a case of the munchies can be expected so if you’re up for some laughs, get comfy, put on a Netflix comedy and be sure to have the nighttime snacks ready before you’re feeling too couch-locked!
Pine Tar Kush is 100% pure indica with an average THC count of 18%-22%, a moderate average with balanced effects that are ideal for both novice and experienced smokers. You breathe in history with this strain as it is a historical and genetic descendant of a multitude of native landraces from Pakistan, being a direct descendant of the original Kush strain itself. While there are a variety of new strains available on the market, Pine Tar Kush is one of those classics that will never get old despite its long cannabis history.
Appearance & Aroma
Pine Tar Kush infamy can be attributed to its appearance and aroma as its most noticeable and distinguishable characteristics include an extreme stickiness due to a nice thick coating of resin and its strong Kush pine wood flavour and scent. These nugs are small and are a shade of bright neon green covered in golden trichomes. While you might not like the sap-like sticky feeling of the resin with your bare fingers, this is an indicator of its terpene concentration and adds to the plant’s delicious flavours. While its name and feature is predominantly pine, it is pretty dank and emits a skunky smell as well. However, it also is nicely balanced by a fruity citrus that is both tangy and sweet.
