Introducing Kush God: the next big strain from Pure Sunfarms

DELTA, British Columbia, May 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pure Sunfarms Corp. (“Pure Sunfarms”), a leading producer in the Canadian cannabis market and wholly owned subsidiary of Village Farms International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VFF), expands its roster of quality dried flower with Kush God – a fresh cultivar of iconic lineage.

The powerful new indica is a genetic powerhouse, from two iconic parent strains: Pink Kush and Pineapple God. It is also the first Pink Kush cross from the Pure Sunfarms breeding program, bringing dedicated fans of the strains an exciting new offering.

“Kush God is the best of our genetics coming together, combining the unique characteristics from two of our most powerful cultivars. We crossed our all-time best-selling Pink Kush with our bold, frosty and fruity Pineapple God to create an epic strain we know consumers will love,” says Orville Bovenschen. “We’re always pheno-hunting and developing new strains, and this one is exceptional, I would consider it to be a quad.”

Pink Kush has cemented its place as a consumer favourite since its launch four years ago, maintaining a record as the #1 top-selling strain through 2023 in Ontario (Canada’s largest market)1. As of April 2024, Pink Kush represents the most popular strain nation-wide2. Pure Sunfarms’ own Pineapple God has seen similar success since hitting markets in spring 2023, becoming a top seller in the premium flower category and currently holding its place as the #1 premium flower product nationally3.

Having launched in B.C. this March, Kush God is already a top 10 (#8) selling flower product in the province4. Currently available across B.C, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, with Alberta coming soon, Kush God arrives just in time for summer.
