Pink Muerte is the combination of Pink Kush x El Muerte
El Muerte, also known as “The Death,” is an indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) created through crossing the potent Death Bubba X another unknown indica dominant strain. Although its parentage isn’t fully known, El Muerte is a favorite of breeders and patients alike for its high level of potency and super heavy effects. The high comes on fast and hard, smashing into your brain almost as soon as you exhale with a lifted sense of cerebral energy. This energy quickly fades away, replaced by an unfocused haziness that can have you feeling slightly sleepy at times. As your mind fades in and out, a heavy body high will begin to creep into your limbs, locking you to the couch and leaving you fully sedated before you know it. With these hard-hitting effects and its high 20-25% average THC level, El Muerte is often chosen to treat chronic pain, insomnia, arthritis and headaches or migraines. This bud has a classic fruity flavor with hints of skunky diesel and spicy herbs. The aroma is very similar, although heavily pungent and earthy, too. El Muerte buds have grape-shaped forest green nugs with lots of thin amber hairs and a coating of tiny frosty white amber-tinted crystal trichomes.
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.
