Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Cookies Kush from Barney’s Coffeeshop combines GSC with the Rolex phenotype of OG Kush, resulting in a potent indica worthy of 1st place in High Times’ 2014 Amsterdam Cannabis Cup in the “Best Coffeeshop Strain” category.

From the OCS website, “ A potent indica that boasts a pungent garlic aroma, with notes of spice and citrus.

Awesome genetics

No. 427 Retrograde (Kush Cookies) by Haven St. (TerrAscend) packaged on March 11, 2021, cost $33.95 for 3.5 grams with 25.71% THC and an earthy piney scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts quickly and than it accelerates.  The “high” from the two most cherished words in Cannabis, “Kush” and “Cookies” starts with Conviction.  Cerebral extravaganza over a thick layer of blissfulness with an expresso energy boost greets Us with a Bang.  “Hello World!”  Time just went Whoosh Whoosh and half an hour disappears.  Joy to the World as we hop on this cerebral magic carpet.

Kush & Cookies deliver exactly what we expected, a pure joyful cerebral celebration of life.  Intensity declined after 45 minutes and transitioned to a blissful more relaxed and chill cruising “high,” which was also very enjoyable.   The body effects are heavier and more relaxing.  While Haven St. flowers are always dry and not visually appealing compared to craft growers like GTEC, we really like Haven St. prices and the impactful “highs.”

Activity pairing is best for the evening time slots.  The start of Retrograde’s “high” is filled with partying energy but the ending is a chill and relax end point.

On an investment note, now we know why TerrAscend Q1 revenues increased 106% while the rest of the other major LPs dropped 24% in revenues due to Covid.  Stats Canada released their latest results and while revenues were down in January (hang over month after partying December) and February (3 less days in the month), the Cannabis revenues did not crater 24%.  We think all the cannabis revenue declines were caused by new craft producers and good LPs like TerrAscend taking market share.  There is no 24% cannabis market shrinkage because of Covid.  OK?
