Mandarin Cookies by Island Kraft
Hot and freshly baked out of the oven as a relatively new strain on the cannabis market, Mandarin Cookies by Island Kraft made waves and rose to popularity after being born out of a breed project by crossing Cookies (GSC) and Mandarin Sunset. While some variations of Mandarin Cookies exists, this particular variant by Island Kraft is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain that has one of the most unique flavour profiles to date with its sweet citrus blends. It is as tasty as it is powerful with a THC measurement that reaches as high as 24%, a potency that delivers an amazing uplifting high filled with energy and euphoria.
Mandarin Cookies by Island Kraft starts users off with a burst of energy that is shortly followed by feelings of happiness and a sense of creativity, getting rid of any negative vibes and making room for bright positivity. It induces slight indica effects in giving users a bit of a body high which is calming and soothing, but it is not sedative or tiring which makes it excellent for daytime use. So, if you are feeling a bit down or are running out of energy in the middle of a long day, Mandarin Cookies would be ideal for a little pick-me-up. Such mood elevating effects can help with stress or depression, and its energizing nature can help those struggling with chronic fatigue. The relaxation that can be felt with its body high may also assist in managing headaches, migraines or chronic pains.
Mandarin Cookies by Island Kraft maintains an impressive high average of 24%, but it can range between 19%-26% which is relatively higher than most. It has a sativa dominance of 70% to 30% indica. Its parent, Girl Scout Cookies (otherwise known as simply Cookies or GSC), is an indica-dominant hybrid and a worldwide award-winning cult favourite with a 24% THC average. This family line includes other rockstar strains like OG Kush and Durban Poison. On the other hand, Mandarin Sunset, its other parent, is a well-balanced hybrid of Orange Skunk and Herojuana with a whopping 21%-25% THC potency. No weak genetics in this family tree!
Appearance & Aroma
While Mandarin Cookies by Island Kraft does have the typical kush-like, pungent aromas of cannabis, it also carries an array of scents and beautiful colours that distinguishes it from other strains. Visually, it is just as striking with bright yellow and deep amber orange hairs stranded throughout olive green nugs. To top it all off, it has a nice coating of white crystalline trichomes. Like its name suggests, there are bright, tangy notes of citrus that are reminiscent of fresh mandarins. Upon exhaling its smoke, one can further taste the citrus with something more like sour tangerines mixed with hints of diesel. These bright aromas are balanced by a layer of sweet nuts and herbs. Anyone who enjoys this orangey citrus flavour would also enjoy the Orange Jelly Bombs by Twisted Extracts–even sweeter and just as potent!
