Strain Review: Platinum Kush by sofresh

Platinum Kush is an indica-dominant strain that takes on a platinum-silver shade due to its thick coat of crystal resin. With purple hues and bright orange hairs, its buds grow dense with a sweet fruity and hashy aroma.
The purplish dark green is barely visible underneath all the crystalline like trichomes, with some lovely red hairs popping out here and there.
The sweet earthy smell i get is intoxicating, and I can’t wait to get this in my head. I like that pungent smell you get from pure Indica!
The first hit filled my mouth with that sweet earthy mix i was smelling earlier. I really like that aspect of the Indicas. The sweet side reminds me more of a nice tropical fruit than say a candy taste, and the earthy side is a more hashy taste. All in all a very pleasant experiance.
The initial inhale was greeted by a wonderful release starting from the shoulders, and slowly melting into my body. Although I was sedated in body, my mind was not fighting off sleep too terribly, but it was definitely an option. I like to be able to choose whether i’m going to sleep or zone out on the couch. This is perfect for the customer looking to get super relaxed, but not necessarily couch locked. My aches and pains went away almost immediately. I spent the remainder of my euphoric evening sitting on the couch; happy as a clam giggling with my wife. Although she is a non smoker the mood was very infectious for the both of us. It was a definitely a silly night!
