Platinum Cookies Strain: Puts Thin Mints to Shame

Platinum Cookies (also known as Platinum Girl Scout Cookies or Platinum GSC) is a balanced hybrid strain that’s basically half-and-half indica and sativa. This bud’s stellar genetics are the result of a cross between OG Kush, Durban Poison, and one unknown strain, resulting in some of the highest THC levels of any weed out there.

The Platinum Cookies strain delivers a hard-hitting, intense euphoric high that’s pretty quickly followed by total-body relaxation and serious couch-lock. Its uplifting cerebral effects are great for a variety of mood disorders, while its heavy body high is excellent for soothing pain and nausea.
