Platinum Cookies is a slightly indica-dominant (60%) hybrid that evolved from the renowned Girl Scout Cookies. This strain has some top-quality genetics. It’s a cross between the famous OG Kush and Durban Poison, a traditional landrace strain originating from South Africa. Although OG Kush is well-known and has fathered many other great strains, its exact heritage is uncertain. Durban Poison, on the other hand, is a pure sativa, a feature that is increasingly rare in this day and age.
Being 100% sativa, you might expect Durban Poison to have energizing, uplifting effects. If this is the case, you certainly wouldn’t be disappointed. Thankfully, these fantastic qualities have passed on to Platinum Cookies, where they combine beautifully with the relaxing, full-body high of its other parent, OG Kush. Platinum Cookies boasts high THC levels of 18–26%, and CBD levels up to 1%. There is no doubt that this strain is powerful, and it may be best to avoid it if you are new to the marijuana scene.
