Platinum Cookies is also known as Platinum GSC, PGSC, or Platinum Girl Scout Cookies. This is a hybrid marijuana strain that combines the powers of Durban Poison and OG Kush along with one more unknown strain. The Platinum Cookies strain has a THC content of 18%, which makes it possible to be consumed by adventurous beginners. It has a CBD content of 0.32% to 1.14% and a CBG content of 0.22% to 2.02%.

This cannabis strain is known for its sweet fruity taste thanks to the dominant terpene Caryophyllene. It makes users happy and euphoric, making it a good weed to smoke during the daytime.

Effects of Platinum Cookies

This weed is known to provide its effects quite quickly. Users can start to feel their tensions fading away and experience sensations of:

  • Happiness
  • Relaxation
  • Euphoria
  • Upliftment
  • Creativity

All of these make this cannabis strain a good choice for daytime smoke. You can also use its oil or wax in edibles to achieve the same effects.

Like many other marijuana strains with similar effects, this one is also used by people suffering from stress, anxiety, pain, depression, and headaches. It is especially useful for people dealing with stress and depression as it can help relax them enough to focus on other things. Some possible side effects of consuming this weed include dryness of the mouth and eyes, anxiety, paranoia, and dizziness.

Taste and Aroma

The terpenes in this cannabis include Caryophyllene, Myrcene, Carene, Terpineol, Geraniol, and Ocimene. They combine to give this weed a very sweet and fruity taste as well as the aroma. The primary aromas and flavors experienced by smokers include the taste of berries, spice, and sweetness. There are also some nutty notes in there, leading to quite a complex flavor profile.

Growing Information

When you sow the seeds for this plant outdoors, you can expect a high yield. Indoor yield is lower, but it is possible to grow the plant indoors. It requires some attention to grow Platinum Cookies but the moderate flowering time of 56 to 63 days makes up for it.

Platinum Cookies Strain Cannabinoids

THC 16.25 - 19.5% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 2.39 - 2.7% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.17 - 0.74% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.18 - 1.08% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.42 - 0.49% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.29 - 0.67% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

It contains the lineage of (OG) Kush and Durban Poison, an African Sativa. That is why you experience both balanced head high and mellow body high.
Yes, as long as you do not smoke too much. When you build up some tolerance, you can smoke more in a single session. Otherwise, you may experience some paranoia.
