About Pink Mango
Pink Mango is a sativa-dominant hybrid that combines the genetics of several other fruity strains. A cross between Blueberry, Grapefruit, and Blackberry, this aromatic bud offers users more than just an upbeat, energetic high -- it also boasts colorful flowers with unique pink pistils. Pink Mango is also potent, with a THC content measured at between
Flowers of Pink Mango have a medium to large size and maintain an elongated, almost cylindrical shape. They seem to have a sativa-influenced bud structure, with long, thin leaves that twist loosely away from each other at their margins. The leaves themselves are a vibrant spring green but they pale in comparison to this strain’s neon pink pistils, which twist their way through the chunky buds. Finally, trichomes cover all visible surfaces of Pink Mango’s flowers, making them sticky and difficult to break up without a grinder.
As you might expect, a cursory whiff of Pink Mango’s flowers will pick up on the distinct scent of fresh mango. A closer inspection may also detect some tropical, citrusy notes. When buds are ground up or picked apart, meanwhile, they have more of a sour, somewhat skunky scent. Combusting Pink Mango in a pipe or a joint produces a thick but very smooth and flavorful smoke. On the exhale, this strain tastes simultaneously sweet and sour.
Like many other sativa-leaning strains, Pink Mango takes effect relatively quickly. Soon after toking, users may experience a pulsating feeling around the temples and lower forehead; some flushing in the cheeks is also possible. Once these tics subside, smokers may notice a change in their patterns of thinking. Some ideas (or even inanimate objects) may take on a new fascination, leading consumers to become lost in thought. Similarly, a freely-associative frame of mind can open up unexpected connections between seemingly unrelated concepts. This kind of plugged-in thinking can pave the way for work on analytical and complicated tasks. It may also inspire creative personal projects or facilitate brainstorming sessions. For those who aren’t feeling as productive, however, Pink Mango can provide some pleasant background distraction during an otherwise boring day.
As the high wears on, some physical stimulation may emerge to complement Pink Bubba’s mental effects. A tingle may slowly spread through the body, leading to full-body relaxation. Fortunately for those looking to stay active, though, this feeling is unlikely to progress into debilitating couchlock. Instead, Pink Mango’s action on both mind and body can enhance things that involve complex coordination -- including exercise, dancing, and given right right company, even sex. Because of its mostly upbeat properties, Pink Mango is recommended for daytime consumption -- if toked before bed, it’s liable to keep consumers wide awake.
Pink Mango’s versatile effects can have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its long-lasting mental focus can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. Its ability to improve mood may also temporarily improve the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. On the physical side of things, this strain can have anti-inflammatory properties that may soothe everyday afflictions like headaches or cramps. Pink Mango’s ability to induce the munchies may even serve as an appetite enhancement for those dealing with diminished hunger due to illness. Because its intense, cerebral mindset can progress into paranoia in the wrong circumstances, Pink Mango is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic.
Seeds of Pink Mango are not available for sale online. Instead, prospective home growers should find a trusted source from which to take clippings. Once obtained, these “clones” can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor growing calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. While there isn’t much information available specific to growing this strain, its sativa-looking buds suggest that its plants can be tall and branchy; as such, growers may want to prune back their crops occasionally to maintain a manageable indoor height. This strain flowers within 8 to 9 weeks and offers an average yield at harvest time.
Thanks to some subtle physical effects, Pink Mango is a great strain for sativa lovers who’d like to take the edge off as well. It’s as enjoyable when toked alone as it is when shared with friends.
