When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, but when life gives you Pink Lemonade cannabis, there is no lemon squeezing or juice making here–though you can puff and take some tokes! The delicious Pink Lemonade strain is an indica-dominant hybrid that many believe is created by crossing Purple Kush, Lemon Skunk, and an unknown, mysterious third strain. A popular favourite for indica or indica-dominant lovers, the strain carries a deliciously sweet and sour, tangy citrus flavour. Though it offers a relatively shorter high, it is nonetheless extremely pleasant as it is quite uplifting and euphoric, making Pink Lemonade a strain that is sure to please both beginners and experienced users!
A fact-acting strain with a smooth smoke, you can feel a boost of energy quickly after a few tokes of Pink Lemonade. Despite its indica dominance, users will experience a cerebral high as they begin to feel an uplifting wave of euphoria and a sense of focus. Creative and introspective thinking will occur, and while you may be more focused, thoughts can easily move from one topic to the next, so this strain can be ideal if you’re in need of brainstorming ideas or if you’re in an artistic mood and want to create. Coming down from the high can be felt with a gradual though deep relaxation that takes over, transitioning from a stimulating cerebral high to a calm body high. It is not couch-locking but is effective in treating or dulling bodily aches and pains, as well as migraines/headaches, nausea, and gastrointestinal disorder. The physical relaxation supplemented by the uplift in focus, mood and energy can help those struggling with fatigue or ADD/ADHD, and also alleviate symptoms of depression and stress.
Pink Lemonade’s THC potency count ranges from 17%-20% on average. Even with its mysterious lineage, it is estimated to be about 80% indica to a ratio of 20% sativa. For comparison, its believed parents, Lemon Skunk, is a sativa-dominant hybrid and averages 15%-22% THC, 1% CBD and 1% CBN, while Purple Kush, the infamous pure indica made by crossing Hindu Kush and Afghani landraces, is 22% on average. While the strain can already be potent, one can enhance and strengthen the high with Hindu Kush Shatter by Exclusive Extracts to keep it in the family. Regardless of who the secret third parent of Pink Lemonade may be, it is undeniable that its genetic heritage is a powerful one, and is a testament to its nicely balanced effects that allowed the strain to pave the way for its own popularity amongst cannabis users and particularly indica lovers.
Appearance & Aroma
In terms of its appearance, the Pink Lemonade strain is a dime a dozen. Indicative of its name, it is a truly beautiful chunky bud coloured by hues of pastel pinks amongst minty greens, and it is finished with a dreamy covering of milky white trichomes. The strain of course gives off aromas of fresh citrus, but it gets more complex than that. There are aromas of earthy herbals and subtle florals that lighten the scent. As for its flavour profile, the lemon is complemented by a blend of other fruits including grapefruit, pineapple and berries; its sweetness has been noted to be sugary, almost candy-like, giving its sweet beverage name and flavour. A delectable treat for a hot summer day–like a glass of lemonade!
