Platinum Pinks (Platinum OG x Pink Kush) Strain Information:
Platinum OG (#1 cross of Platinum Pinks) Strain Information:
This is the first cross of Platinum Pinks, Platinum OG is a super-potent descendant of OG Kush, Master Kush, and an unknown parent. THC levels easily top 20% and have reportedly reached 24% in some tests. This indica-dominant hybrid has a sativa/indica ratio of 25/75, and that is reflected in the mostly physical high.
The powerful effects include a calming body buzz with couch-lock, euphoria, happiness, and intense sleepiness. This makes Platinum OG a good medication for insomnia, as well as anxiety, low mood, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, mood swings, and muscle spasms.
CBD levels are very low, less than 1%, which isn’t surprising, considering the high THC content. In other words, this strain shouldn’t be used as sole treatment for seizures or other disorders that require CBD. Platinum OG produces a smell of diesel, spice, and coffee; the flavor is similar, with additional hints of herb.
The bud is lime green and covered in fuzzy trichome hairs. Dry mouth is by far the most commonly cited side effect with this strain, though dry eyes, dizziness, and paranoia are also reported. It sells best on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Arizona.
Pink Kush (#2 Cross of Platinum Pink) Strain Information:
The heritage of this heavy indica is a little uncertain, but it’s known to be a relative and possibly an offspring of the legendary OG Kush, one of history’s most popular strains. Pink Kush carries on the legacy, delivering a potent body high that’s very effective as medical treatment.
The effects are calming and intensely euphoric, with happiness and a powerful case of the munchies. It’s a versatile tool for treating anxiety, depression, inflammation, lack of appetite, migraines and other headaches, mood disorders, chronic pain, and insomnia.
The sativa/indica ratio of this strain is hard to verify, but appears to be as low as 10:90, meaning strong physical effects. THC tests are scarce, but the few that are publicly available suggest fairly high potency, topping 20%. CBD levels are reportedly much lower, less than 1%, so this isn’t an ideal choice for treating conditions that respond to that chemical, including epileptic disorders.
The flavor and aroma of Pink Kush are similar, with notes of pine, wood, and flowers. The strain gets its name in part from the pink hairs that punctuate its green nugs. It’s most popular on the legal markets of the Pacific Northwest and Canada.
