Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 24.81%; THC 0.97%; CBDa 0.97%; CBD 0% (ACT Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Characteristics: This sample consisted of several dense buds that exhibited the typical Girl Scout Cookies traits: densely packed buds with large calyxes, dark greens and a few tight purple-hued sugar leaves.
Bud Density: 4.5 [1 – 5]
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
When I opened the container it smelled of wet hay, not GSC. Experienced folks out there know what that means: Excess moisture is still trapped in the bud. To remedy this issue, I "burbed" the sample (i.e., let it air dry over time). Once you burb it and get the moisture balanced, the bud will recover to some degree, though typically it does not always recover its full aromas & flavors, which is was what happened to me to some degree in this case. It took almost two weeks to purge the moisture and essentially neutralize the hay smell. The smells and flavors came back about 75%. Once ground, the kush qualities came to the fore with a light sweetness in the background. When smoked, this bud tasted of citrus, earth with sweet notes.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: Even though the terps were subpar, the high was an accurate Girl Scout Cookies set of effects. A well-rounded blend of mind and body. Lots of euphoria.
Duration of Effects: 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with mild G.I. cramps. May also help with depression, anxiety, stress, body and muscle pain, nausea, appetite (and more)
After I fully cured these buds, this batch was in the 'minimally acceptable' range. It's too bad so much moisture was still contained in the interior of the buds when it was packaged. If this batch was fully dried and cured, it's quite possible it could have been an excellent example of GSC. An inexperienced user would not necessarily recognize the excess moisture nor know how to remedy it.
