Leaves are a bright spring green and have a profusion of curly orange hairs — which are actually pistils, intended to catch pollen from flowering male plants. Many phenotypes of this strain also exhibit bold streaks of purple. This is likely the influence of Grandaddy Purple (which appears on both sides of Pink Champagne’s lineage) imparting high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments which turn leaves purple when stimulated by cold temperatures in the growing process Amber-colored trichomes coat the already colorful flowers and give the leaves a slightly yellow hue; they also make this strain very stick to the touch.
On first inspection, these colorful flowers have all the berry pungency of both parent strains. Sweet blueberry, cherry, and grape aromas mingle with a skunky tang. This pervasive skunkiness is intensified when buds are ground up or broken open. When combusted, Pink Champagne gives off a refreshingly smooth smoke. On the exhale, it has a subtly fruity taste with an underlying yeasty, malty flavor. This strain can also be very pungent when burnt, so smokers looking to keep their consumption discreet should take any necessary precautions.
Because of its relaxing properties, Pink Champagne is more appropriate for nighttime than morning or daytime use.
Iit should come as no surprise that Pink Champagne also has physical and psychological benefits for many patients. Its thoroughgoing sedation can soothe all kinds of aches and pains. Anti-inflammatory properties can be good for anything from a mild headache to a more serious migraine. Pink Champagne may even stoke hunger for those whose appetites have been compromised by disease or medication. Those with stress, anxiety, and PTSD may find temporary relief from their symptoms with this strain’s knockout effects. Finally, in large enough doses, Pink Champagne can be a great way to treat insomnia.
Quad strain (AAAA) means that this strain scores perfect in all 4 aspects of quality:
1. Smell (great & strong smell)
2. Texture (of the flowers, sticky, slightly crispy on the outside, cushiony on the inside)
3. Burn (ash is white & homogeneous in texture)
4. Taste (no unpleasant peppery or dirty taste)
