About Mandarin Cookies
Mandarin Cookies is a unique Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. First grown in the United States, Mandarin Cookies is a proprietary strain first grown by Ethos Genetics. Although many online publications claim the strain to be the result of a GSC cross, this Colorado-based cannabis company claims that the strain is a cross of Ethos Cookie #12 and Mandarin Sunset. This crossbreeding resulted in 18 out of 18 plants being designated “keepers” by the growers, illustrating this cross’s powerful genetics. Mandarin Cookies is a daytime strain, with THC concentrations averaging around 20%, though some batches have tested at nearly 26%.
In line with its Sativa-dominant genetics, Mandarin Cookies presents with elongated buds that look like bright green peppers. Occasionally, the buds present with deep purple hues which can make them look like an entirely different strain altogether. Winding yellowish hairs will wrap themselves around the surface of these buds, adding to its overall appearance. In addition, these buds are dusted with a fine coating of milky white trichomes.
These buds produce an incredibly powerful aroma that is pleasant and not quite pungent in nature. As these buds are broken down, you should expect an aroma of earth, kush, and strong citrus overtones with a bit of pungency coming to light when the buds are ignited. The flavor is often one of the largest selling points of Mandarin Cookies, as it produces an incredibly bright and vibrant flavor. Users have reported tasting an incredibly light mixture of citrus and herbs, with a bit of a nutty almond exhale.
