I’m ready to test anything with the word Cookie in it…
The team at Weed Me describes Mandarin Cookie as having an earthy herbal aroma with distinct citrus overtones. Although classified as sativa dominant, this strain is a hybrid that was created by crossing Forum Cut Cookies and Mandarin Sunset.
But the big question… how does it smoke?
Check our review, rating and photos below.
Having never tried Mandarin Cookie before but being aware of its popular reputation, we were really looking forward to reviewing this strain. It arrived in a medium sized white bag with zip seal. And what a delightful surprise, upon opening the bag, the first thing I smelt was sweet tangerines with a hint of earthy spice – intriguing.
Visually this bud looks great! Absolutely stunning! From the cake like frosting of heavy trichomes down to the purple and dark green collage of solid buds. The amble pistils are actually covered and hidden by trichomes. On the negative side, it was quite dry and flakey. You’ll see some of the shake and dry leaf in the photos below. This problem could easily be solved by protecting the terpenes and plant with simple a moisture pack.
This one is extremely tricky to describe … for some reason it reminded of the cookies lady fingers. However there was a clear touch of orange and citrus. Light, tasty but subtle, and so smooth. Refreshing! The smell and flavour are both perfect matches to the strain name.
Mandarin Cookie has performed really well up to this point and did not disappoint at the end. The smoking experience is best described as a strong peaceful and calm high. You feel relaxed and mellow without being too sleepy. Weed Me’s Mandarin Cookie is a strain to definitely look out for especially if you enjoy citrusy cannabis.
