Platinum Cookies: End of Summer PSA
With this summer concert season finally coming to a close, I would like to wrap it up by reiterating this useful PSA. If you happen to encounter Officer Dick Downey, Badge #710, at one of these late summer music venues, I highly recommend the following:
Do NOT touch me. This includes hugs, kisses, handshakes, fist bumps, accidental bumps of any kind, licking, squeezing, poking, pinching, applying stickers, hanging glow sticks, touching me with your hipster beard or wannabe dreadlocks, or actually petting me while hallucinating or while not hallucinating.
Do NOT do anything stupid. We'll have to have an encounter if I see you do any of the following: Partaking in the devil's vine, underage boozing, indecent exposure, sex in public, uncontrollable puking, staring at me for long periods of time, staring at my gun for long periods of time, calling me a pig, or asking me for my badge number and "demanding justice" when you are hallucinating or while not hallucinating.
Do NOT do anything weird. Some obvious acts include communicating to me in baby talk, asking me for money, telling me how much you love cops while on ecstasy, offering me any homemade food such as a veggie burrito, trying to put my hat on, asking to see my gun, approaching me after you've pissed your pants and not realizing it, and especially asking me for a hug while hallucinating or while not hallucinating.
Do NOT approach me if you stink.

Phenotype Profile: Super dense, tightly trimmed nugs. As is typical of this GSC cut, tight sparse pistils, sage colored and dank. I did not detect any purple hues in this sample, as is sometimes the case with this phenotype.
Bud Density: 5 [1-5]
Terpene Profile: I have requested the lab report for this flower. I will update this section with the specific terpene levels when/if I receive the report.
Upon opening the packaging, I was hit with that strong aroma of Platinum GSC pungent-sweet dankness I know and love. Once ground, these buds emitted spicy-fruit, Durban dankness and berry. When smoked, the Durban’s anise flavor melded with sweet berry to deliver a dankness that lingered on the palate.
Justice Grown includes Boveda brand 2-way humidity control packs in their flower packaging:

Effects: Platinum GSC should provide a potent mind-body experience with a noticeable leaning toward the Indica, and this sample did not disappoint. Hits the body and soul both equally well. It’ll soothe the savage beast and get to what’s ailing you. A great medical strain with wide-ranging applications.
Duration of Effects: 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with stress and mild nerve pain. May also help with body, muscle and nerve pain, mood, nausea, swelling, migraines, PTSD, anxiety, appetite (and more)
A nice batch that exhibited classic Platinum Cookies traits.

Adios until next year, and don't forget to take the stank with you!
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
