Pink Lemonade

from Pioneer Nuggets

Opening a jar is like inhaling a fresh fizzy drink!

As fall settles into our minds as surely as the leaves mix with our notorious Western Washington rain, it’s important to sit back and enjoy one more summery sensation with the Pink Lemonade.

Grown by Pioneer Nuggets, whose unique indoor growing environment and passionate approach produces delicious craft Cannabis, the Pink Lemonade is a strain that harkens back to the days of medical Cannabis. This locally-bred, heirloom strain embodies the mission at Pioneer Nuggets to growing unique cultivars with history and provenance, like their Acapulco Gold that was our Strain of the Month two years ago. The Pink Lemonade has proven a consistent, quality and heritage strain that continues to gain in popularity each year, and is a perfect representation of an ‘insider’ cultivar in today’s developed Cannabis market.

Opening a jar is like inhaling a fresh fizzy drink, with bright and syrupy citrus that smacks the nose and palate with a terpene profile that brightens eyes on inhale. Breaking the flower open reveals a lovely citrus funk with an undeniably pink-grapefruit-sugar flavor that will get your mouth watering. Breaking up the thick and juicy nuggets reveals a pillowy texture that burns lightly, delivering a sweet and tingly smoke that tickles as it exits with an easy exhale.

Several tokes later, a feeling of euphoria rushes in – but there’s a Mr. Mackey from South Park floating head high that is both heavy and disorienting, which is rare for a sativa cut. Continuing to smoke, our head eventually reconnected with the body, reminding us that we are in fact connected to our legs below. 

We found ourselves oddly ready for action after the initial stoniness faded – like we wanted to be moving – but certainly not doing anything requiring complex thoughts or numbers. Perfect for relieving stress, anxiety or fear of another pumpkin spice product, the Pink Lemonade delivers a perfect fall distraction that tastes as good as it sounds.
