Platinum Jack strain review
Strain Name: Platinum Jack
Date Acquired: November 14, 2011
Looks: A nice large crown with three smaller marijuana nuggets wearing a thick coat of sugary trichs with visible "orange/red/rust" hair.
Smell: Sweet, sugary peppermint stripped candy.
Taste: Not like it smells. Taste was more like unwashed vegetables vs. sweet fruit.
Buzz Type: Active focus and clarity. Energetic
Buzz Length: Above Average to Very Long (1.5 hours to 2 hours)
* Platinum Jack reminded basically had me thinking a "funked up" Jack Herer. This strain had lots of "funk" overtones. Having a very dank smell on the exhale, I had to use this strain outside as the smell of exhaled smoke was just as bad as some heavy Indica strains.
The strains Headiness snuck up on me with progression in "head tingle." I felt it most behind the eyes as the tingle I felt was met with a bit of a sensation of pressure. I was slightly jittery and heady similar to some better batches ofGreen Crack I've had in the past.
A big plus was I had a strong sense of focus although I had to be doing something or I was just moving around. I felt like I was working in overdrive and/or I hard for me to sit down and stay still.
Platinum Jack came with a case of the munchies too. I craved everything sweet and salty. Luckily, this strain made me active because aside from that, I was always eating!

This strain is well known for being super potent with a mild citrus or tropical aroma. Cindy is great for daytime use and provides plenty of energy. Be careful not to underestimate C-99. Cinderella 99 is a sativa-dominant strain and provides all the good sativa benefits.
Sour Diesel Strain Review
A sativa-dominant hybrid, Sour Diesel has a Diesel / candy-like smell and a very distinct taste. Great for energy and focus, and works well in the daytime when you have to get things done.
Strain Name: Sour Diesel
Date Acquired: March 20, 2012 & March 31, 2012
Looks: Thick, pellet like marijuana nugget deep green in color covered in sugary trichs.
Smell: Light hint of fuel; like gasoline vapor with hints of pine and lemon.
Taste: Sour lemon.
Buzz Type: Mellowing and relaxing full body buzz with slight bit of headiness. Creativity enhanced.
Buzz Length: Above Average to Very Long (1.5 to 2+ hours)
* It's been a while since I medicated with some Sour Diesel. The smell and taste is as classic as this strain itself. One hit blindfolded and you would know it is Sour D. Body tingle intensifies over the duration of the high to the point it felt like a million ants are crawling on me for a few minutes. Then, I would just cruise into a state of mellowness.
Sour Diesel is also a very relaxing strain at which I found I tapped into my creative side.
This batch of Sour Diesel was a bit heavy and that heaviness can be powerful. I actually found myself dozing off a few times on this Sativa dominant strain. I kind of like that since that heaviness kind of works with the "tingle."
Sour Diesel is a tasty strain. I would always think; "powdered lemon candy sticks." Really large packed bowls did provide a more dank fuel like and very sour taste that I found could be a bit strong leaving an overbearing after taste.
Larger marijuana nuggets looked very "thick," but were "delicate" to the touch.
Overall, Sour Diesel is a nice classic strain, but I did smoke this batch fast. I refilled with this same batch twice and medicated with twice as many flowers within the same time frame as my Indica strain such as Spartacus OG. This batch would be an A+ strain if not for going through a fill so fast. Otherwise, this is a nice rendition of really a now "classic" strain.

The Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name "Bubble Gum" has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.
White Widow Strain Review with photos
White Widow buds are covered in crystals, giving it an almost sugared look. A relatively new strain developed in the early 1990's, it has been the subject of many rap songs and was frequently mentioned in the television show Weeds. It is a very potent and powerful variety of cannabis, available on the top of all Dutch coffee shop menus. The buzz is powerful and energetic yet social, be prepared for a strong high.
Strain Name: White Widow
Date Acquired: March 16, 2012
Price: $45 (e)
Looks: Very sticky lime green marijuana nuggets covered in sugary white trichs with "fire red" hair reaching towards to the sky. Small areas of dark spotting.
Smell: Pepper sprinkled on top of oranges. Very "peppery & spicy" with hints of fruit fallen off the tree.
Taste: The best way to describe the taste would be; "clean." Not much of taste on the inhale, but left behind a lemon pepper like after taste on the exhale.
Buzz Type: Energetic and creative or relaxing.
Buzz Length: Average to Very Long (1.5 to 2 hours)
* I don't know why, but for the past few months, I've had a craving for "classic" medical marijuana strains. So, when I heard one my sources had White Widow available, I made certain that an (E) was held for me as I just had to have this craving satisfied.
White Widow provided some ultra smooth big bonghits! This strain smokes "clean" with really no solid, pungent aftertaste. It's not a super flavorful strain, but an overall nice "clean" smoking strain. I experienced minimal (if no) cough most of the time. I was able to take big bong hits with no irritation. That was a blessing since I've been coughing more and harder due to dabbing. This batch of White Widow being perfectly flushed, it burned into a flaky white ash.
The scent of my White Widow marijuana nuggets was a "clean" peppery/fruity scent that did linger. Exhaled smoke left the area smelling very danky and fruity. Just breaking up a marijuana nugget left a pungent lingering scent behind within the area.
Providing a very energetic buzz, White Widow did seem to play on my current mood (state of mind) at times. I found if I was in a bad mood, this strain enhanced it. I actually went H.A.M. on an incompetent customer service representative on the phone while medicated with this strain. But overall, this strain made me quite creative. For me, White Widow is a very functional strain. I had the desire to "work" and somewhat of a confidence boost. I felt very sure of my decisions at the moment, but I did have a short fuse when faced with confrontation.
I'd always get a nice head buzz shortly right after consumption of a bowl followed with some full body tingle. White Widow was a bit heady, but not jittery which I like. For me, this is a nice "wake and bake" strain to get me up and going in the morning; especially on the weekends.
I did have the desire to be outside when medicated. White Widow seems to be like the perfect summer strain. A nice strain to have when at an outdoor bar or relaxing on the beach (or at the pool).
I did experience moments of dry mouth and thirst. I did get the "munchies," but overall I found myself drinking more vs. eating.
White Widow is solid classic strain! With all the marijuana strains floating around today with exotic names, it's nice to see some providers out there have not forgotten about some of what I consider the classic medical marijuana strains of yesterday.
