Effects Fragrance Flavors Adverse reactions Medical Growing Flowering time
All over Pakistan are indigenous Indica varieties that have made their mark in the country’s rich history. The green herb was once used in religious settings where it was seen as a catalyst of spiritual enlightenment. Meanwhile, its medical benefits are widely valued and even well-documented throughout the region. And, though rare, some ancient communities use the Indicas recreationally as a way to experience euphoria.
Sadly, the circumstances are different today. The once culturally enmeshed plant is now seen as a nuisance especially after Pakistan gained traction in the Hippie Trail of the 1960s and 70s. Since then, the Pakistani government has taken a hard stance against the native marijuana plants growing around the region.
Some enthusiasts have successfully managed to smuggle a few of the Indica varieties though and continue to sell the plants with little to no variation in their genes. One of which is Pine Tar Kush, a strain aptly named for its wood-flavored terpenes and tar-like buds. In fact, opening its amber container is enough to fill the room with its scent while placing its bud in one’s hand leaves a sticky residue of resin.
Unlike the rest of the landraces that originate from Pakistan, Pine Tar Kush is a tad bit stronger. The plant received a subtle genetic change that resulted in higher levels of THC (18% to 22%). For this reason, it is a good recreational smoke and an effective medicine.

Pine Tar Kush is a true delight for the senses. Its refreshing pine with subtle accents of sweet citrus is invigorating. But, once broken apart or combusted, its overtones of skunk with undertones of earth fill the air.
Pine Tar Kush entices the palate with notes of freshly picked citrus and subtle hints of damp earth. Continue Reading
