Not Silver, Not Gold - Platinum Level Potency
Platinum Cookies Feminized, sometimes known as Platinum Girl Scout Cookies or Platinum GSC is the well-bred, pedigree result of the original GSC (OG Kush combined with Durban Poison) and an unknown strain. But what is life without a little mystery? Well, when that mystery has a potency of up to 28% (yes, you read that right), we’ll take it.
Sparkling with trichomes right from the bag, this is a great strain for extraction or hash-making and with tantalizing sweet berry and earth notes, she’s not bad for edibles either.
Still, it’s the effect that those trichomes have when you light her up that’s the real kicker - this Indica-heavy hybrid might begin in the head with an uplifting euphoria, but it’s not long before her body-stone becomes apparent, and you find yourself sedated, relaxed and in all likelihood, locked to the couch.
This physical effect makes Platinum Cookies Fem a choice strain for medical tokers, as she functions as a pain-reliever for chronic pain, and her head-highs work to alleviate low mood, and negative thoughts in those with anxiety and depression.
Growing this ganja is a breeze, with feminized seeds and Indica growth traits that make for a sturdy, resilient and compact strain. Platinum Cookies requires only a little environmental control and some occasional trimming to flourish indoors or out, and with plenty of love and light, she’s not a bad yielder.
Flavor and Fragrance of Platinum Cookies Feminized
As soon as the pre-flowers appear on this plant, the delectable aroma of Platinum Cookies is evident, blending fruity, sweet berry notes with an earthy flavor and spicy kick that make this strain perfect for making edibles.
Though a mostly Indica hybrid, Platinum Cookies Fem’s high begins in the head with a rush of euphoria. Moments later, this will be followed by an uplifting buzz that clears your mind of cobwebs and induces a feeling of happiness that’s conducive to creative thinking and enhanced focus.
In the early stages of this high, you’ll feel energized and enlivened, making this a great time to get on with chores and finish off your tasks for the day - because no doubt about it, that motivation doesn't last long.
Within thirty minutes of your first toke, Platinum Cookies’ Indica effects begin to kick in, weaving a web of soft, soothing sensations across your body to melt away muscle tension, and thoroughly relax you from head to toe.
Since this herb’s THC content can range from moderate to ma-hoo-sive at 28%, paying due care to your dosing is absolutely essential. Even in smaller doses, Platinum Cookies Feminized is an intense high for most, including the most seasoned veteran smokers. Dry eyes and cottonmouth are guaranteed - but in higher doses, the adverse effects can be overwhelming and unpleasant, including heightened anxiety and increased paranoia. 100% not what you want from your sesh.
Medical Uses of Platinum Cookies Feminized
If you’re inexperienced either as a recreational toker or as a medical consumer, Platinum Cookies Fem might be a strain to avoid - but if you know what you’re doing and are seeking a high THC medicinal strain, then look no further than these buds.
The fast-acting, invigorating buzz of this herb is an excellent reprieve for those suffering under the burdens of stress, anxiety and depression, as the euphoric feeling induced will work to clear away the worries and negative, intrusive thoughts that linger in the head, and replace them instead with a feeling of positivity and lightness.
Capable of functioning both as an analgesic and as an anti inflammatory, Platinum Cookies can provide comfort for those struggling with chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn’s disease, and even act as an antiemetic to reduce feelings of nausea and encourage a healthy appetite.
Since this strain is mostly Indica, one of the long-lasting effects utilized by the medicinal marijuana (MMJ) community is her ability to sedate tokers. Once the high reaches its peak, this weed will wind you down into a drowsiness that eventually turns to sleep, making a joint of this great for those with insomnia or fatigue.
Growing Platinum Cookies Feminized Seeds
Though there’s some Sativa in this ganja's heritage, Platinum Cookies Feminized’s growth traits are definitely more like an Indica - as in, she’s small and compact, making her easy to manage in an indoor grow room or tent. She’s also fairly hassle-free to manage right from the start since her feminized seeds make the chances of males (and therefore pollination) unlikely.
Most novice growers will be capable of maintaining the required environment for this plant, which includes a steady temperature of between 21° and 26°C at all times. Due to her bushy shape, Platinum Cookies Fem also requires a little trimming and pruning in her lower nodes, but all in all is a breeze to cultivate.
To maximize your output, we’d recommend growing this plant in a Sea of Green (SOG) setup, combined with a 600-watt HPS grow lamp. Her flowering stage should last between 8 and 9 weeks, and when you’re ready for harvesting, the final yield will be between 350 and 450 grams per square meter.
Growing Platinum Cookies outdoors requires a warm climate with plenty of sunshine to encourage explosive growth. If you’re lucky enough to be able to grow this plant somewhere with a Mediterranean-esque environment, then you’ll find that her yields will be around 450 grams per plant, ready for reaping around mid-October time.
There have been many variants in the cookie family since GSC first came onto the market, but without a shadow of a doubt, Platinum Cookies Feminized is one of the best we’ve toked. Delicious with fruity berry notes, it doesn’t matter whether you smoke, vape or eat this weed, you’re guaranteed to love the effects.
Beginning up high, the cerebral effects of this ganja get your creativity flowing for a little while, uplifting you into an improved mood and mindset before the Indica side makes itself known. Deep and intense, this is a body stone you won’t forget, as your muscles melt you down into the couch, and you’re slowly but surely sedated into sleep - meaning her medical effects are pretty damn impressive, too.
For cannabis cultivators, Platinum Cookies Fem is a dream strain that practically takes care of herself. Nothing beyond the usual trimming and temperature control is required for her trichomes to sparkle and her yields to be heavy - just some TLC, and this hardy hybrid will flourish.
