Strain Integrity

From the OCS, ” Platinum Cookies are nothing like your sorta weird relative’s cookie recipe. Sure, it’s a sativa-hybrid that’s a whole lot of sweet and a little bit spicy, with just a hint of berry. Yes, its smoke is rich and silky smooth (you’d expect that from a recipe handed down from OG Kush and Durban P). But Platinum Cookies are far from soft and chewy. It hits hard with potent THC levels. No sir, Platinum Cookies is no ordinary cookie. Your relative’s cookies are yesterday’s news. The future is platinum, my friend. And the future is starting to feel pretty good. Palmetto is cannabis for people who like cannabis, grown in the heartland of Alberta so you’re always good to go.

According to Leafly, ” Platinum Cookies, also known as “Platinum Girl Scout Cookies,” “Platinum GSC,” and “PGSC” is a popular hybrid marijuana strain and the next evolution of GSC. This Cup-winning hybrid—a cross of OG Kush, Durban Poison, and a third unknown strain—fills your nose and lungs with sweet notes of berry and candy, followed by a fruity spiciness. Patients with severe pain, nausea, swelling, migraines, and stress should look no further for relief as symptoms both physical and mood-related melt away instantly…. 

A Value Wake & Bake

Platinum Cookies by Palmetto (Sundial Cannabis) packaged on August 5th, 2021, cost $22.95 for 3.5 grams with 20.0% THC and a citrusy floral scent.  Out test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts with an increase in wakefulness and joyfulness.  Euphoria begins after inhalation ends with a slight buzzing and we can feel time being compromised.  A quick 10 minutes into the “high,” Platinum Cookies by Palmetto unfolds with joyful euphoric sense of awareness enriched with vibrant creativity.  Not overpowering, this “high” does deliver a full range of expressions to enjoy in a timeless space.

At $22.95 for 3.5 grams, this Platinum Cookies delivered a decent Wake & Bake “high” and suitably entertaining for the first hour.  The second hour was a tone down version of the first hour.  We apologise for this uninspiring review.  We blame it on the strain.

Activity pairing is best as a coffee replacement with a euphoric topping.  Platinum Cookies also performed well as an energy pickup in late evening sessions.

At every price point, Canadians can find a good “high.”  Platinum Cookies by Palmetto is a perfect example of good affordable cannabis in Canada.  Are there cheaper and better cannabis?  Absolutely, yes.

Would we buy this again?  No.  We have a lot of Bandwagon Blue Dream that is cheaper, hits harder and more enjoyable.  Palmetto, a Sundial Brand, delivered what we expected.  But, the market is now flooded with better and cheaper Weed.

On an investment note, Sundial is now trying to be something more than a cannabis cultivator.   Sundial is now a Cannabis Investment Portfolio manager.  Unbridled greed in cannabis economic have ended up badly.  Cannabis thrives in a grassroot economics environment.  Go Micro.  Small is beautiful.
