The potency of this strain could be considered overpowering, and even small doses are known to eliminate pain, insomnia, and appetite loss. Where Pink Kush really delivers is in its effect: a powerful, full-body narcotic feeling mostly thanks to its high THC content, which can range anywhere between 20% to 30%.

Cookie Cake Strain
Indica Dominant Hybrid – THC 24.5% / CBD 1.50%
A strain that needs no introduction, but lets do one anyways: Cookies Cake strains bloomed from a garage in San Francisco 11 years ago. With some astronomical marketing, it began its world domination of a must have strain. It combines two legendary strains, Girl Scout Cookie and OG Kush. Like its name suggests, this bud has a crazy tasty flavour of fruity vanilla skunk with a hint of sweetness upon exhale. If you are lucky to get your hands on some, it lives up to its legendary status.
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – THC 24.5% / CBD 0.35%
Another legendary strain, also knows as Lambs bread, we cannot speak highly enough of this strain. It works wonders for any pain or fatigue and works wonders for those who suffer from depression or AD/HD. A lot can be accomplished with this strain with only very little of it. Would highly recommend this strain for a good wake and bake because of its energetic nature.
Hybrid – THC 24% / CBD 0.55%
Considered one of the top 10 strains of all time, of course Canadians would be all about it too! When you can get this strain, you better order a good chunk!

Also known as “Original Glue”, “GG4,” and “Gorilla Glue #4” it is is a potent hybrid marijuana strain that delivers heavy-handed euphoria and relaxation, leaving you feeling “glued” to the couch.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – THC 23.5% / CBD 0.10%
Blue Cheese is another classic indica-dominant hybrid that delivers a memorable taste with a balanced high. But you know what else it is, its really very stinky, in a delightful way! Its distinctive name has more to do with its genetic lineage which is a cross between the popular Blueberry Strain and the UK-native Cheese strain, than its taste, which is surprisingly fruity. But Blue Cheese is really so very stinky, just one whiff will widen your eyes and you may just laugh at how much it actually resembles a slab of Limburger cheese.
Hybrid – THC 25% / CBD 1.20%
A cross of two really nice strains, White Widow and Cheese, via Zambeza seeds. The skunky-cheesy funk is very much present and there in equal parts is the Widow’s hashy-earthy scent … you can tell this is going to be potent at first smell. With a medium-darker green appearance and some reasonably dense cone shaped nuggets, it resembles White Widows in its appearance with a little bit of the gold trim from the Cheese.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – THC 24.5% / CBD 0.95%
Sweety Auto, also known as “Sweety” or “Sweety Automatic,” has a slow build of effects, that sneaks up behind the eyes and in the forehead before slamming forward and leaving you feeling fully euphoric and out of touch. This particular strain is a must have and a favourite amongst Quadzilla customers and growers alike (its nice and easy to grow compared to others).
Indica Dominant Hybrid – THC 23.5% / CBD 0.55%
This strain is one of those magical strains that just seems to cure all ailments without any negative side effects. It also feels the best out of any strain and the high is such a treat. The body high is similar to that of Blackberry Kush but its been kicked up a few notches. For some background, the Black Diamond is an indica marijuana strain from Northern California. It is the ideal strain for patients who need strong medication but still want to be active and sociable. A cross between Blackberry and Diamond OG, its flowers have a glittery trichome covering and purple colourings that make also make it a beautiful flower to look at.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – THC 28% up to 33% / CBD 0.20%
Carefully selected from thousands of plants before combining choice Skunk #1, Afghani, Northern Lights, and Shiva genetics into one potent seed line. Ice features copious yields of high density flowers with incredible trichome production. If ever any craft cannabis strain was thrown by the heavens this would be it. This hybrid leans more toward in indica, so keep that in mind!
