Phenotype Profile: Dense, round buds with an abundance of dark green and purple sugar leaves. Unlike other cuts of GSC, this sample not exhibit large calyxes or tight pistils. It was a little on the dry side; I woke it up with a Boveda pack.
Bud Density: 4.25 [1 -5]

Elemene 0.84%; Limonene 2.53%; Beta-Myrcene 2.76%; Alpha-Pinene 0.58%; Beta-Pinene 0.41% (LK Pure Labs)
In their intact state, these buds gave off orange citrus with pine notes. When ground, the aromas opened up, emitting citrus, pine and earth. When smoked, I tasted orange, earth and a light sweetness that lingered a bit after the exhale.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: This was an active, happy experience. Smooth energy, lots of mood elevation and a mild body component made for a pleasant day time high. For me, there was a soft crash at the end .
Duration of Effects: 1.5-2 hours, depending on dosage.
May Help With: Helped with mood. May also help with mild-to-moderate pain, depression, stress, possibly anxiety, appetite (and more)
Even though this strain is Sativa-dominant, anecdotally many patients have commented that this strain has a calming effect on their minds.
A solid batch of Mandarin Cookies. I don’t do 1/4 points, but if I did this would be a 3.75/5 rating.
