If you know Tiger’s Milk, you’ll know what to expect from this newcomer to the scene. The sister strain of the potent and popular hybrid from Bodhi Seeds, Cougar Milk is much more scarcely available and packs a serious wallop. Created by combining Appalachia genetics with SoCal Master Kush, Cougar Milk is an indica-heavy specimen that’s fragrant, flavourful and freakishly strong. Best enjoyed at the end of the day when you’ve nothing of importance to do, Cougar Milk Pie is all about wasting time and loving every minute of it.
Cougar Milk isn’t a strain to approach without due care and attention. Batches have tested for a THC content in the region of 20%, but this stuff usually comes with more like 26% THC. Even by today’s standards, that’s still more than enough to catch the seasoned smoker off-guard. Visually, Cougar Milk gives a good indication of what to expect as the plants reach maturity. The buds produced are dense, heavy and generously sized, coated by an impossibly thick and sticky layer of trichomes.
The fragrance is dominated by ripe berry fruits and classic kush dankness, which becomes almost overwhelming when the buds are broken and ignited. Cougar Milk delivers a rich and creamy smoke with decadent notes of bitter chocolate, with a curious hint of citrus on the exhale. This is a near-impossible strain to keep under wraps, so is worth trying out only when discretion isn’t really a priority.
