The Review

Delivery and packaging: 10/10

Quick delivery (one day) and very good stealth packaging. The buds come in a heat-sealed plastic pouch that is itself wrapped up snuggly in loads of bubble wrap.

A bit over the top with the use of bubble wrap perhaps, but it kept the buds well-preserved.

Aesthetics (looks): 8.5/10

While the buds are compact, nicely coloured and with visible trichomes, they are not that big or chunky. They’re quite small and dense but far from near stringy or wiry. 

The trim job is pretty decent and you can really see the sticky trichomes when you pull the buds apart. It’s clearly a well-grown flower.

Rip a bud apart and it feels very sticky and resinous.  

Smell: 9.5/10

This Cookies smells really nice. Sweet and creamy. I also get a slight nutty aroma, which works really well with the sweetness. It’s a bit more of a sweetness to it than other THC-rich Cookies variants I’ve tried.  

Taste (smoking vs vaping)

Smoking: 8.5/10

I haven’t been smoking too much recently thanks to my growing appreciation for dry herb vaping, so rolling a fatty of this GSC was a treat. It smokes very smooth and has a sweet but subtle taste.

Vaping: 9.5/10

This strain was excellent through my Pax 2. It has a strong flavour at first. Sweet and tasty. A bit of a bubblegum-type flavour. 

After a good few minutes in the vape, it’s still producing big vapour clouds, although the sweet taste has dissipated.

Effects: 10/10

Calm, happy and relieved. That’s how I felt after smoking and vaping this Girl Scout Cookies from Dope buds. The effects are pronounced, with no haziness, anxiety or anything like that. Great on its own but also takes the edge of high-THC weed very well too.  

Price: 10/10

Just like the rest of Dope Buds’ range of premium CBD flower, this strain is available for £5.99 a gram. It’s great to see the price for hemp flower drop from a standard £10 per gram. Dope Buds are one of the industry leaders when it comes to good value hemp bud.
