San Rafael ’71 Pink Kush is an indica strain with a genetic connection to the widely popular OG Kush.
The majority of users describe it having a fresh lemony aroma with a spicy lavender undertone which is produced from the dominant terpenes being limonene, caryophyllene and linalool. Growers indicate the buds are typically dense, medium to large in size, dark green with deep purple hues, orange hairs and a thick layer of trichome crystals.
We reviewed Pink Kush from Pure Sunfarms a while back so it will be interesting to see how this product compares.

The product arrived in the same blue plastic container as San Rafael’s Stonefruit Sunset strain. We popped off the security lid and were instantly meet with a strong and pleasant smell. It was made up of the unique combination of sweet floral, lemony citrus and a earthy herbal that all together strangely reminded us of pink lemonade.
We dumped out the contents and noticed the flower was packaged in January 2022 making it 4 months old but they did include a humidity shield inside the container in an effort to keep the bud fresh. In terms of size, the nugs were medium in size, fluffy, dark green with a few purple leave tips and embedded with dark orange hairs and a thick trichome layer. On the negative side it was quite dry even with the humidity shield and noticeably leafy. It probably could have go another round with the trimmer.
The flavour profile was pretty much in alignment with the aroma. When inhaling there was a mild but notable citrusy floral taste that disappeared on exhale and was replaced by a similarly mild herbal note. The smoke itself was harsh which is likely the result of the dryness and excess leaf.
Our bag was part of lot number 1104922000524 and packaged on January 10, 2022. Listed with 22.9% THC content and a price tag of $32.95 for 3.5 grams, we found San Rafael ’71 has again delivered a good overall experience with this Pink Kush. Expect a moderate mental cloud that creates abstract focus combined with a moderately strong body buzz that felt like goosebumps being triggered from head to toe. If you’re a fan of Pink Kush then this version from San Rafael should be right up your alley.
