I’m not one of those cops who lectures perps. The way I see it, if you’re an adult and you are acting like a fool, you’re already a lost cause. There’s nothin’ I’m gonna say that will magically transform you into a rational human being.

But I do make an exception once a year: If you are going to get drunk on Super Bowl Sunday, please do NOT drink and drive under any circumstances. Every year on this day I end up having to tell a parent or spouse that their loved one is in pieces on the highway due to drunk driving.

You can spend a little money on a ride home, or you can take the chance of destroying your life and even the lives of others.   ​

Packaged On: 08/17/2016

Net Weight: 3.54g

Delivery Method(s) Used: Clean glass pipe

Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 22.52%; THC .35%; CBDa 0%; CBD 0% (ACT Labs)

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page. 

Phenotype Profile: This sample’s buds were mostly mid- and dark-greens with a large calyx structure and orange pistils throughout. I didn’t observe any purple physical characteristics with the naked eye, but I could see lots of purple sugar leaf remnants under magnification. The buds were little less dense than I expected and on the dry side (packaged about 6 months ago).           

                      Bud Density: 4   [1 -5]

Terpene Profile: In their intact state, these buds emitted a noticeable black tea aroma combined with earth, some Durban Poison sweetness and very light purps notes. Once ground, GSC’s OG Kush genetics takes over, filling the olfactories with mostly earth, pine and sour pungency with purps in the background. When smoked, it tasted of pungent pine followed by peppery, sweet hash with purple and earth on the exhale.

TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page. 

Effects: It seems the idea behind this cookies genetics mash up is to offer purps-heavy GSC effects that, in theory, should lean a bit more on the body than the original GSC cut. Guess what? It does; or rather, it did for me. I found the effects to deliver the same powerful GSC effects most of us know and love, but with a little more focus on the body. A very potent set of effects that do not neglect the body. May make you feel a bit loopy at high doses.

Duration of Effects: 2 hours

May Help With: Helped with mild cervical nerve pain and stress. May also help with body pain, muscle pain or spasms, anxiety, mood, sleep, appetite, nausea (and more)

Rating: 4/5
Props to this flower’s flavors and medicinal effects. Reminiscent of Platinum GSC, but not the same.

I don't care who wins as long as it's not the Patriots.

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
