The TenCo, born in Los Angeles, California, flexes serious muscle in growing knowledge while breeding genetics sourced from around the world. Pink Zushi is one of its proprietary strains, alongside Yellow Zushi, Blue Zushi, and Nozu.

Its Pink Zushi is a masterpiece, and undoubtedly one of the most talked-about and sought-after strains on the consumer marketplace in the U.S. in 2023. The TenCo founders Staks and Gerry keep its genetic lineage a mystery.

The cultivar’s potent effect and jaw-dropping pink hairs have made it a favorite among the celebrity crowd of stoners in the brand’s hometown. Endorsements have come from Pete Davidson, Cole Bennet, Pi’erre Bourne, OVO 40, and more. The dry hit is complex, with notes of sweet garlic and umami—not far off from the satisfying, savory funk of sushi itself. Pink Zushi’s effervescent green and pink hues will drape your day in a euphoric and rhapsodic high. It’s a creative, energetic, spirited type of weed. This strain will gift smokers both the wildly unique terpene profile with hard-to-find aromas they crave, and the uplifting high to back it up.
