Sativa Dominant Hybrid
70% Sativa / 30% Indica
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. You’ll feel a rush of euphoria first that fills your mind with a sense of tingly creativity and energy. Soon, this effect will push out any negative or racing thoughts, leaving you slightly unfocused without affecting your energy in the slightest. This is accompanied by a light relaxing body high that keeps your limbs in a state of calm without causing sedation. With these effects and its high 19-26% average THC level, Mandarin Cookies is perfect for treating those suffering from chronic pain, depression, headaches or migraines, ADD or ADHD, and chronic fatigue. This bud has elongated pepper-shaped olive green nugs with thick yellow-orange hairs and a coating of tiny frosty white crystal trichomes.
How to Use Shatter
Like other marijuana extracts, shatter is usually vaporized or “dabbed” by consumers from a vape pen or specially equipped water pipe called a dab rig. With a potency ranging between 50-90 percent cannabinoids by weight, marijuana extracts like shatter are a fast, efficient, smoke-free way to consume cannabis.
To use shatter in a vape pen, you’ll want to be sure you have one that is specifically designed to be used with marijuana extracts like wax or shatter. These vapes have an atomizer (the vape’s heating element) that will rapidly heat, bringing your shatter to its vaporization point.
To vape shatter, you’ll add your shatter to your vape’s heating chamber, as you would similar marijuana extracts. As the atomizer heats your shatter, it will quickly melt and turn to vapor, which you will then inhale from the vape’s mouthpiece.
Dabbing is the more traditional way to use marijuana shatter. When dabbing, pieces of shatter are applied or “dabbed” onto a hot surface like a hot titanium or ceramic nail or quartz bucket. The shatter will rapidly vaporize upon contact with the hot surface. As you dab your shatter onto the hot surface, you will inhale the vapor through the dab rig’s water chamber and into your lungs.
