How to convert bar time to UTC?

I have a simple question,

Using ToUniversalTime() method doesn't work when trying to convert bar time to UTC, I suppose it's because the DateTime kind is unspecified.

I think the bar time of BTC GDAX price is EST, I could just add or remove hours to it, but I would like to know if there's a better and more reliable solution.
