Pistol and Paris were the 2022 ARCANNABIS Cup winners for best-licensed flower producers which makes sense as we were impressed with their Orange Tingz strain.
Today we’re reviewing their Pink Panties cultivar which is an indica dominant hybrid with it’s lineage being a cross between Burmese Kush and Florida Kush. Grown by Tri-City Smoke in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, this flower is suppose to produce medium-dense flowers with pale orange and pink pistols and have trichomes that might appear pink in the right lighting.
Let’s see how this compares with other kush strains like Pink Kush or the delicious LA Kush Cake.

After being impressed by their Orange Tingz strain I was curious to see what else Pistol and Paris had to offer. Without waiting a moment, I tore open the bag and found this cannabis had an herbal scent with a subtle sweet peppery undertone. Getting in closer and breaking apart the bud, I discovered the herbal smell became more pungent and the pepper element became more assertive. However when burned, I found the smoke and vapour from this Pink Panties strain mostly had a peppery scent.
This cultivar arrived in a bright pink Mylar bag with the cultivar name, THC (26%) and CBD (<0.30%) percentages printed on the front label. The back of the bag had information about terpenes and lineage. It was nice to see Pistol and Paris include a humidity pack, however the buds themselves were slightly dry. In terms of colour pattern, they had a dark green tone that was combined with dark orange and slightly pink hairs wrapped around the nugs. When I looked at the Pink Panties under a microscope (photos below), the trichomes around the outside of the flower were highly visible and robustly developed and they seemed to be an amber brown after cracking open a couple of nugs while the trichomes on the inside are precise milky colour.
When I tried the Pink Panties in my Arizer herbal vaporizer, I found the flavour profile to be dominated by a herbal taste that reminded me of cilantro, so you’ll definitely need to be okay with that taste if you plan on grabbing this strain. There was also a musky taste underneath the herbal flavour. However when I rolled a joint, the musky flavour that was very subtle before became more prominent.
My bag was part of lot number CC13JUN2022.001 with a packaged date of June 13, 2022. Listed with 26.3% THC content and a price tag of $36.98 for 3.5 grams, I found this cultivar made me feel sluggish and relaxed at the same time. The buds were dryer than I prefer which is unfortunate, so if I got this cultivar again it would definitely be a different batch with a fresher package date. I’d also like to see Pistol and Paris include a harvest date among the information they provide. But even with those minor complaints I still think this indica is potent and delivers a very strong high.
