According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), “perception of a [herbal cigarette] as a drug may cause unanticipated criminal consequences.” Basically, just because it may sit on shelves doesn’t mean you don’t consider it a drug.

It’s also psychoactive, meaning that it leads to a sedative effect. When asked about the effect of Pink Kush on the body and mind, Daniele Piemonte, founder and principal of Northern Lights Farm, a cannabis farm in Maui, Hawaii explains, “The effects are akin to caffeine but with much more THC. Essentially, using cannabis in this form can lessen anxiety and achieve high-calibre sleep.”
