Pine Tar Kush is a Limited Release Flower from Pure Sunfarms so they say it won’t be around for long.
Naturally we were curious by the “limited release” part so we ordered some to test.
Pine Tar Kush descends from a landrace strain originating near Pakistan and is a nearly unaltered indica best known for having bright green buds with a strong skunky aroma. Pure Sunfarms says this batch was grown inline with the true nature of it’s potent aromatics and flavour.
It will be interesting to see how it compares to Pure Sunfarms products like their their Blueberry Kush.
Check our review, rating and photos below.
The product arrived like all previous from this brand – inside a dark green plastic bag with resealable zipper opening. We opened the pouch and were disappointment by the rather mild musky earth aroma with an herbal kush undertone that was detected. We did not notice any skunk or pine which was surprising.
We dumped out the contents and noted as per usual Pure Sunfarms did not include a humidity shield in their pouch. It appears that trimming the plants is too time consuming as well because the small buds are horribly leafy and very shaggy. There are many brown hairs and a light trichome coating but the sheer amount of excess leaf is hard to look past. Substandard appearance to say the least.
As one can see from the photos, the buds had a lot of extra sugar leaves which significantly increased how harsh the smoke was and reduced overall smoking enjoyment. Aside from the respiratory issues we found the flavour to be average at best and reminded us of a moderate earthy taste that fades into a faint herbal.
Listed with 18.1% THC content and a price tag of $22.95 for 3.5 grams, we found Pine Tar Kush from Pure Sunfarms to be an average at best product. This flower would be most enjoyed by those looking for a mild to moderate indica high without being couch-locked. It delivered a mildly relaxing body high combined with a mild mental cloud that was relaxing but not overpowering. Overall though we preferred Pure Sunfarms D. Bubba strain.
