Pink Kush – This special strain is enjoyed by consumers across Canada for its strong aromas, colourful flowers, and high THC potential. Beneath a thick coating of trichomes, the dense and round buds feature forest green leaves, often with a purple hue, mixed with dark amber pistils.

Pink Kush showcases gassy aromas of white pepper, orange, butterscotch, coffee, earth, and grapefruit, the result of a rich combination of terpenes that includes caryophyllene, myrcene, humulene, bisabolol and limonene.

Jet Fuel Gelato – Jet Fuel Gelato is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50 per cent indica/50 er cent sativa). This strain is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as chronic stress, depression, inflammation, chronic fatigue, ADD or ADHD and chronic pain. This bud has a sweet and fruity berry flavour with a slight peppery sour citrus exhale.

D. Burger – Greenhouse grown in B.C.’s Fraser Valley, Donny Burger is a deliciously savoury and pungent indica weed strain made by crossing GMO with Han-Solo Burger. The effects of this strain are more calming than energizing. At a potent 26 per cent THC, Donny Burger is best-suited for cannabis consumers with a higher THC tolerance.

“Through our wholly owned subsidiary, Pure Sunfarms, we are now exporting our preferred Canadian-grown cannabis products to four international medical markets, including Germany, Australia and Israel, which together with the UK, represent a population of more than 185 million.”
