Gifted Curators offers “DC weed at its finest.” One of our cannabis connoisseurs, Kush-n-Pain, is sampling legendary strains from Gifted Curators to review for Urban Aroma readers. Read on for Kush-n-Pain’s review of Platinum OG.
Platinum OG is an 75/25 indica-dominant plant, and another of the mysterious variety. I was gifted a small pile, perhaps two grams, to try in exchange for an opinion. I’m game.
The nugs were mostly broken bits and pieces wrapped in paper, so we’ll forget about smells, though spice still came through. The volatility of terpenes allowed for the faintest of hints, but would be more present in the burn. The flowers were lime green with deep green and purple, and very trichome-heavy; this frosty coverage justified the name Platinum. The buds were dryish, so they disintegrated with a soft snap as they fell into my chillum.
Two Tokes Test
The flavor was spiced earth, and smooth on the exhale with a faint coffee nut hint. It took about two minutes to start feeling the bake which was not only cerebral but could be felt in the neck and shoulders. This is a typical old-school indica strain which may relieve pain, anxiety and appetite loss along with providing for longer uninterrupted sleep.
On to the genetics. Platinum OG is the prodigal child of OG Kush, Master Kush and another unknown cultivar.
Lab results show:
- THC: 17-24%
- CBG-A: 4.3%
- CBD: <(0.2%)
- CBN: <(0.2%)
- CBC: <(0.2%)
Trace levels of THCV have also been noted.
The terps in Platinum OG are rather standard. Good old heavy head sleep-inducing myrcene is dominant, with relaxing pinene having second greatest accumulation, citrusy limonene and spicy caryophyllene rounding out this strain.
One is not blown away by the high, but I did enjoy basic euphoria and general good mood.
Rating: On the Ephrata 1-10 Scale I rate this as 8.7 for recreational use and 9.4 for medical use.
