About Pink Pez
Pink Pez is an indica-dominant hybrid that offers a compelling, candy-like sweetness to complement its multilayered effects. Descended from Pez and Sour Pink Grapefruit, this bud starts off with a head buzz that tapers off into a body high that’s great for stress relief. Pink Pez’s THC levels have been measured at as low as 12% and as high as 23%.
Visually, Pink Pez is a stunner. The large buds have a distinct conical shape, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. Their structure is mostly indica-inflected, with a compact core and leaves that spiral inward toward their central stems. These leaves are a pale sea green, but it’s their pistils that really shine -- the curly reproductive structures appear to be a rarely-seen shade of pink or mauve. Cloudy white trichomes cover these already-colorful buds, giving them a snow appearance when seen from afar.
Pink Pez’s flowers carry a predominant odor of citrus. Under this fruity aroma lurks a sour-sweet funk that’s something like fermented vegetable matter. Grinding up the tight buds gives off notes of woodsy pine. When burnt, Pink Pez gives off an uncommonly smooth smoke that carries flavors of pine and some grapefruit on the exhale.
At first, Pink Pez hits with a focused, heady high that may bring with it some flushing in the cheeks or an increased pressure around the temples. In addition to these physical symptoms, smokers are soon hit with a surge in the pace of their thinking. Otherwise mundane or uninteresting concepts may suddenly claim more of the user’s attention than they ordinarily might, inspiring a chain reaction of free association. This cerebral mindset can be an effect way to tackle a mountain of tasks, whether you’re trying to get through analytical tasks or rote, process-oriented jobs. For panic-prone or inexperienced cannabis consumers, though, Pink Pez may be deeply disorienting and confusing. Fortunately, this bud’s mental edginess doesn’t last forever -- after an hour or so, thorough relaxation creeps in, sending waves of relaxation down the spine and outward through the limbs. While these effects serve to balance out any previously jittery energy, they can also drain a user’s prior motivation or productivity. As such, Pink Pez’s later effects are fun for social settings, where they can spark easy conversation whether you’re hanging with friends or strangers. Eventually, a cloudy mood may take over and dull any insights or thoughtfulness; if smokers are able to give themselves over to this kind of dreamy euphoria, they may find themselves melting into their surroundings. Pink Pez is a good strain to enjoy during the late afternoon or early evening when its slow decline in energy levels can be fully savored.
Pink Pez’s dynamic effects also make it valuable for medical cannabis patients. Its cerebral onset can help those with attention deficit disorders to focus their attention on a single task. Its generally uplifting mood can also temporarily distract from the symptoms of stress and depression. Pink Pez can also soothe physical pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like lupus or fibromyalgia. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can take care of lesser irritations like indigestion. Because its sensations of mindrace may be disorienting in the wrong setting, Pink Pez should be consumed with moderation and caution by patients who are paranoia-prone or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of this rare strain are not available online. If prospective growers have the access to the right connections or facilities, they should obtain clippings of mature plants in order to foster “clones.” Pink Pez can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoor calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The plants tend to grow short and bushy with strong lateral branching and have a shorter than average flowering period.
This candy-flavored bud is a great treat for late afternoon use. It makes a great smoke for indica and sativa lovers alike as a reward at the end of a long day or week of work.
