The strain produces extremely powerful indica effects and a long-lasting whole-body high that leaves the body well-rested, relaxed, and pain-free.

While Pine Tar Kush isn’t the easiest hybrid to grow, especially for novice growers, it is moderately resistant to mold and diseases. Also, it doesn’t require any specialized set of skills to successfully grow both indoors and outdoors.
However, growers are encouraged to water their plants more often and implement proper protective mechanisms to keep molds, pests, and diseases at bay. Most importantly, growers should prune their plants more regularly to promote lateral growth and speedy development of buds.
Pine Tar Kush has a flowering time of about 9 to 10 weeks. Growers can expect about 400g of high-quality flower per plant. We should also mention that Pine Tar Kush tends to produce more consumable herb per plant when cultivation is done indoors.
