(4*.) Pink Panties
Pink Panties is a scandalously-named strain with a mysterious backstory. It is believed to be a cross between a Burmese landrace strain and a Florida Kush plant that was then backcrossed with another Florida Kush plant. The Cookie Fam, a San Francisco-based group of breeders who claim responsibility for originating Girl Scout Cookies, also take credit for the creation of Pink Panties. Because of the high representation of landraces in this strain’s genetics -- in addition to the Burmese Kush in its background, parent strain Florida Kush is itself descended from none other than Hindu Kush -- Pink Panties is very potent and can be especially an especially hardy grow.
Buds of Pink Panties are medium to large and have the dense, solid bud structure typical of indica varieties. The leaves, which coil tightly around their central stems, are a dark mossy green. Hairy pistils thread their way through the leaves and can range from pale orange to a shocking shade of pink, granting this strain its name. Adding to its beauty are patches of purple in their leaves and milky-white trichomes cover the flowers and make them very sticky and hard to break up without a quality grinder.
This strain is potent with a skunky earthiness and notes of ammonia, possibly due to the influence of grandparent strain Chemdawg. Despite its complex flavour profile, Pink Panties delivery a very smooth smoke when burnt. It has a sweet pink kush and lightly herbal taste on the exhale; the overall impression is similar to that of a floral liqueur.
Pink Panties offers a slow, creeping high that may take several minutes after users have finished smoking to feel its initial effects. What begins as a slow pressure around the eyes and temples may mount into drooping eyelids and a permasmile. This weighty feeling is soon matched by a heaviness in the core and limbs -- a feeling that may lead users to seek comfort in the closest possible surroundings. Mental effects are subtle and may take the form of visual distortions or a freely-associative kind of daydreaming. Such trippy effects can lay the groundwork for a lazy afternoon of watching movies or listening to music. As time wears on or as dosage is increased, smokers may become contentedly couch-locked. Because of its predominantly sleepy vibes, Pink Panties is best enjoyed during the late afternoon or evening.
