Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Breaking the 4th wall with this narration. This is true account that happened to me – the owner of this website and medical cannabis patient – during a recent dispensary visit.
I’m sitting with three other patients as we wait in a queue to purchase product. A 30-something woman enters the dispensary and sits down at the table with us. After only a minute or so, she barks at the group, “Someone make me a coffee.” We are all taken aback by this request. No one answers, but that was not going to deter this diva at all.
She then starts targeting each one of us. She looks at the guy nearest to her and says, “You. Make me a coffee.” The guy responds, “It’s my first visit here, I don’t know how to use that coffee machine.” Now, I’m thinking, 'clever, non-confrontational response.' But I’m also thinking, 'Uh-oh, what the hell am I going to sa-' At that very moment, this deranged person looks me right in the eye and commands, “Make me a coffee.” Oh shit. So I say, "Me?". Without any hesitation, she responds, "Yeah, you. Make me a coffee." Every fiber of my being wanted to offer her detailed instructions on exactly what she could do with her coffee request, but instead I found myself actually starting to make her damn coffee! Thank goodness, after only a few seconds my name was called and she was left to her own devices. Unfortunately, I was unable to experience the pleasure of serving her with a smile.
Be careful out there. You might find yourself cornered by an out-of-control ID. If you do, I'd advise that you do NOT do what I did. Instead, consider offering those detailed instructions I should have provided.
Method of Extraction: Rosins are solvent-free. They are created by applying heat and pressure to the cannabis flowers. No solvent is used in the extraction process.
Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (breakdown unknown)
Original Girl Scout Cookies is 60%/40%
Genotype: Revolution's Cookies = Unknown
Since GSC’s original genetics (Durban Poison X OG Kush) are patented by its creator - the Cookie Family, this “Cookies” strain name suggests that this bud is likely from Revolution’s own breeding efforts and a genetic mash-up of the ubiquitous Girl Scout Cookies. I did not reach out to Revolution for specifics on the lineage.

Delivery Method(s) Used: Glass dab rig w/ a quartz nail
Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 75.50; THC 11.05%; CBDa .09%; CBD .29%; CBC .21%; CBG .46%; CBN .6% (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Characteristics: This rosin was a caramel-colored, soft, very pliable round ball. The silicone container packaging made for easy, no-mess handling.
Terpenes Profile: I’ve not obtained the lab report. If/when I do, I’ll update ASAP.
In its intact state, this rosin emitted a light sweet pungency. When dabbed, I detected that familiar GSC sweet-toastiness up front, followed by an herbal-like sweetness on the exhale. This rosin has its GSC influences, but offers a flavor all its own.
TIP: This rosin’s flavors are best expressed at lower temperature dabbing.
Effects: If you have experience with the original Girl Scout Cookies strain, then I would say the effects are very similar, though I’d describe this one as offering a more spacey component at moderate and higher doses than the original GSC. This rosin provides lots of that GSC euphoria and mood enhancement with a noticeable body element. Like the true GSC, this high was also relatively balanced and long lasting.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: GSC in general has a wide-range of medical applications. Helped me with mild muscle pain and mood. May also help with depression, anxiety, PTSD, body pain, nerve pain, insomnia, appetite (and more).
Exceptionally clean rosin that offers an interesting flavor profile and potent effects. If you enjoy rosins and/or GSC, this one is worth getting.
