GSC - Girl Scout Cookies strain review with pics
If you live in the Bay Area, you've likely heard of Girl Scout Cookies. Whether it's from one of the songs by the famous San Francisco rapper, Berner or actually trying it yourself, Girl Scout Cookies is a can't-miss strain that will medicate you beyond your wildest dreams. A potent mix of an OG Kush x Durban Poison x Cherry Kush mother backcrossed with a prime-looking OG Kush father created possibly one of the best Northern California strains of all time. For those of you who are into the Bay Area rap scene, you%u2019ve likely already smoked some of this off-the-charts weed after hearing some of the songs by San Francisco rapper and collective owner, Berner
Strain Name: Girl Scout Cookies, "Original Thin Mints" (THE ORIGINAL CUT)
Date Acquired: December 18, 2011
Type: Hybrid (Indica Dominant)
Looks: Frost covered tight and very light weight marijuana nuggets with areas of deep "dark" spotting encased in orange/rust colored hair.
Smell: A slight hint of pepper with a sweet evergreen funk hitting over the top clearing out the nostrils. Smell can be describe as "minty," but I had to really "detect" it.
Taste: A light, but sweet evergreen/spearmint fruit enhanced flavor with a bit of sweet tea leaf after taste.
Buzz Type: A combination of heady and heaviness providing some solid focus and spatial awareness along with good pain management and relaxation.
Buzz Length: Long to Very Long (2 to 2+ hours)
* Girl Scout Cookies, "Original Thin Mints" somewhat threw me for a loop when I first started medicating with it. On my very first bowl, my first thought was; "YES! A Sativa that's straight up FIRE!" Fact is, Girl Scout Cookies, "Original Thin Mints" (GSC-OTM) is an Indica dominant hybrid strain that was mostly heavy, but also quite heady; headier than most hybrids I've medicated with going as far back as I can remember. That initial shot of Sativa like headiness stuck with me on the first bowl for a good while until the more dominant heavy and relaxing Indica qualities take over.
While feeling "up," GSC-OTM provided me some intense focus and clarity. I was able to get of work done in a short amount of time. I was able to work quite fast. When the heaviness builds up, it feels like someone is taking three of their fingers and pressing against the inside corners of my eyes and bridge of nose. The relief I felt around my eyes was awesome. Very similar to most Kush varieties I've medicated with, but with a little added euphoric feeling.
GSC-OTM has a nice initial scent, but the lingering scent can get funky from broken up marijuana nuggets. I found I had to light candles and use spray; not from smoking inside my house, but from after snipping a marijuana nugget. The lingering scent is STRONGER. My wife commented on that several times and although I do not smoke flowers inside my home, I might as well given this flowers lingering smell; which I actually like, but is very noticeable to the "non-user."
The majority of the time, GSC-OTM did not couch lock me, but the overall buzz effect could be a bit to heavy for some for day use and this buzz is long; with a typical full bowl consistently hitting the 2+ hour mark with me. Knowing that my overall tolerance could be higher due to more concentrate use, having this long buzz term meant a longer duration of use before depleting supply (a good thing). With GSC-OTM, a little goes a long way.
The heaviness of GSC-OTM provided me with great pain relief. I've even made note where my head was pounding me one day from limited sleep and after a bowl of GSC-OTM, I was feeling fine. I really like how this strain was mellowing and relaxing while attacking pain while still providing mental awareness. I enjoyed many "happy hours" while medicated with this strain.
When medicating heavy (multiple bowls in a short time span), the come down is noticeable "harder." This is when I get hit with watery eyes and the case of the yawns. A heavier "come down" made me a bit lethargic.
Crafted in Northern California, I was very happy to get this strain knowing I recieved the original directly from SAN FRANCISO. An interesting name for a marijuana strain, sometimes I sit back and wonder how it was named. Is it because the dark spotting makes some marijuana nuggets look like green chocolate chip cookies under the camera? Is it because it crumbles like cookie crumbs when breaking up the marijuana nuggets? When breaking off into little "crumbs," GSC-OTM also burns like a Kingsford charcoal; to a flaky white.
Girl Scout Cookies, "Original Thin Mints," has been hyped up quite a bit through the Internet and Pop Culture. But this is one strain that DOES live up the hype. Straight FIRE and my first IE420 "Certified Fire" strain of 2012! There are several variations this "Cookie" strain and do hope I am fortunate enough to come across ALL of them!
Cheers (& Cough),

Super Silver Haze strain review with photos
Super Silver Haze was the first prize winner at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998 and 1999 and also won awards at the High Times harvest festival. This sticky sativa will leave you with a great energetic body high. Genetics: Skunk x Northern Lights x Haze.
Strain Name: Super Silver Haze
Date Acquired: September 3, 2011
Looks: Very dense orange haired and trich crystallized lime green marijuana nuggets. Looks like many micro-marijuana nuggets compressed together. Some marijuana nuggets had dark areas of "spotting." crystallized trichs gave the marijuana nuggets a florescent hue.
Smell: Sweet... very sugary. A red/white peppermint candy dropped in a cup of black tea.
Taste: Sweet Indian spices and tropical fruit candy like Skittles.
Buzz Type: Full body buzz and head tingle.
Buzz Length: Above Average (1.5 hours)
* Super Silver Haze provides the kind of buzz I "expect" when medicating with a Sativa. A nice full body buzz that kind of creeps up on you and before you know it, you are state in "tingle" with eyes feeling heavy and red. This is the kind of strain where carrying eye drops and wearing sunglasses is a must. I have the "appearance" of the typical "stoner" when medicating with this strain!
I dig the smell and taste of this strain. Big rips can be a bit spicy, but when I load the bowl "right," the rips are very fruity and flavorful.
Being a tingle filled Sativa sensation, Super Silver Haze was a great daytime strain for me. Despite having the feeling of heavy eyes, I was very alert getting and tackling my daily work tasks and requirements.
Overall, a very pleasant strain and a nice strain for those who find Sativa strains like Green Crack to "strong." Wished it had a bit legs on the buzz as I was consistently re-loading every hour and half when solely medicating with Super Silver Haze.

Black Mamba strain review with pics
Strain Name: Black Mamba
Date Acquired: February 24, 2012
Type: Hybrid Indica Dominant
Looks: Super dense, dark, very sticky to the touch (covered with liquid like trichs under the macro) marijuana nuggets with areas of deep purple/dark spotting and reaching orange "hair."
Smell: Rich and pungent. A bit like perfume. Like a bottle of harsh red wine; where it needs to "breath" before being drinkable. Also has hints of sweet cream and mint with a strong hit of menthol over the top of the nose.
Taste: Hints of grape and bubble gum. Fruity with a sweet after taste.
Buzz Type: Euphoric and relaxing.
Buzz Length: Above Average to Very Long (1.5 to 2+ hours)
* I was presented with a fresh batch (I was actually there for another strain, but just my luck that one was out, but JLS was cool to give me what was left of Weapon X; a few small nugs and shake). The first nug of Black Mamba out the jar weighed 3.6g! If not for the need of multiple nuggets as part of the "E" for photo purposes, I would have so loved to take that marijuana nugget home with me. Lots of FAT marijuana nuggets in this most recent batch I saw.
A bit to heavy for day use, Black Mamba is a nice wind down and relaxation strain. I enjoyed this strain most just before bed or winding down the evening watching TV. This strain hits hard and fast. Black Mamba provided me with some excellent pain relief; the feeling was as if my pain was just "melting away." Heavy cerebral sensation of "pressure" coupled with nice soothing body tingle was this strain's strong point. The tingle on the lips was almost immediately felt on the exhale. Black Mamba is a great strain just to wind down and fall into a good nights sleep.
If not retiring for the night, Black Mamba did catch me off guard a few times and froze me in my chair for periods of 5-10 minutes (almost like a semi-couch lock state). If not "frozen," I was definitely feeling very drowsy where the second my head hit a pillow I would be "out."
Black Mamba is very "tasty" for such a heavy Indica strain. My fresh marijuana nuggets were super sticky. Residue was left behind on my fingers when I was breaking up a marijuana nugget. This strain burns rich near the end of a fully packed bowl. I found I had to give my bubbler a "quick rinse" after two/three bowls and that's with using a screen.
Overall, this strain had good smoke expansion with minimal throat irritation/coughing with the my only negative being dry mouth and constantly thirsty. Providing a heavy head high that intensifies to a full body high, Black Mamba was a nice evening strain to end the day with. Black Mamba is not as "powerful" as some other harder hitting OG's out there, but it is a nice strain and I was very glad I was able to get my hands on this one.
