Info: Pink kush crossed with Nuken. Nuken is a mostly indica cross between Kish and God Bud. It has balanced effects – strong enough to deal with pain but leaving you functional enough to do social activities. Pink Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid with strong body effects. In its exceptional variations, pinkish hairs twirling in green buds nicely sugared with trichomes, with traces of a sweet vanilla and candy perfume. This strain is usually quite potent and is commonly used for pain, insomnia, and appetite loss.
The Pink Nuken strain has been steadily growing in popularity within North American and particularly Canadian weed scenes. Born and bred in Canada by an unknown yet highly skilled cannabis breeder, this phenom of a strain came about by cross-breeding the God Bud strain with Kish and Shiskkaberry. It is a very unique hybrid in the sense that it actually has three parent strains. The Pink Nuken cannabis strain leans towards the indica side of the hybrid spectrum. It is known to deliver an even-keeled feeling, where you end up in a sedated yet fully functional kind of vibe. The bud itself is well known for its extremely nice fragrance, smelling like fresh flowers, earthy skunk, and light pine sap.
The Pink Nuken weed strain plant is known for producing very round and dense buds. Also notable is the thick resinous layer that covers all of the strain’s flowers. Due to the fact that the Pink Nuken hybrid strain leans towards the indica family, the plant is usually short, stout, and a bit bushy. The flowers on the plant are usually ready for harvesting around the 11-week marker. Growers really enjoy dealing with the Pink Nuken hybrid plant, as it can often be described as low maintenance yet premium and high yielding.
As is the case with most indica hybrids, this strain will give you an overwhelming sense of relaxation. If you plan to sit back on the couch and just chill out after a long hard day of work, then this is absolutely the strain to get your hands on. Outside of delivering a strong sense of relaxation, the strain is also frequently described as leaving you with a feeling of euphoria, joy, happiness, and a feeling of being uplifted. On the body side of things, Nuken creates a wonderful and tingly body buzz that feels great just soaking in while on the couch or lying in bed just chilling out.
As far as the medicinal effects of Nuken are concerned, it works wonderfully as a plant medicine to treat pain. If you suffer from any type of chronic pain then you have to try out Nuken. The strain also works wonders on stress relief and even PTSD stress. Muscle spasms, depression, and fatigue can all be effectively treated with the strain as well. Talk to your doctor about trying Nuken if you suffer from chronic pain, stress, anxiety, or chronic depression.
Sample submitted: “Pink Nuken” cannabis flowers.
Notes: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analysed and summarised below:
% by weight
Δ9 THC (activated)
Δ8 THC (activated)
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid Δ9 Δ8 THC)
CBD-Acid (not activated)
*CBD total (CBD-Acid CBD)
CBG-Acid (not activated)
*CBG total (CBG-Acid CBG)
CBV-Acid (not activated)

Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
