Mandarin Cookies is a rare sativa dominant hybrid strain (70% sativa/30% indica) created through crossing the classic Cookies X Mandarin Sunset strains. If you’re looking for a super bright flavor and a loud high, you’ve found it! Mandarin Cookies packs a sharp tangy citrus flavor with hints of rich nutty herbs upon exhale, almost like an almond cookie! The aroma is very earthy and kushy with a sour tangerine overtone that turns slightly pungent as the nugs are burned. The Mandarin Cookies high is just as eye-opening as the flavor, with a lifted high that hits both mind and body with an almost frenzied sense of energy and motivation.
With such a flavorful sounding name, it is no wonder that this strain possesses such an incredible aroma and flavor profile.
As you crumble Mandarin Cookies’ buds, expect an intense rush of earthy aromas, plus a kick of classic kush as well. However, the primary aroma is one of pleasant citrus fruits; imagine a crushed lime fruit mixed with a kiwi, and you will get close to the aroma profile of this strain.
While its aroma is undoubtedly a strong positive, it is the flavor of Mandarin Cookies that keeps people coming back to it. As the name would suggest, expect the bright taste of mandarins to coat your tongue as you take your first puff of this strain.
The flavor is acidic, tangy, and vibrant, with a wonderful undertone of complex citrus and herbaceous flavors. There are even a few nutty flavors on the back-end that really show themselves as you exhale.
The experience is like biting into a big mandarin that is especially sweet. There are so many extra flavors that your head almost feels dizzy trying to comprehend all the foods it reminds you of.
