ETHOS > MANDARIN COOKIES V2 (ETHOS COOKIES #12 x MANDARIN SUNSET R1)
NASC STAFF PICK JUNE 2022!! I cannot say enough good things about this strain! I need low maintenance in my life and I found just that in the growth structure and needs of the Mandarin Cookies – especially outdoor here in Maine. The color, terpene, and calyx to leaf ratio consistently puts her at the top of the pack in any grow! Easy to trim, even easier to enjoy the smoke on.
Mandarin Cookies V2 grows like a champion! Strong apex-heavy growth, she may need some light training. She can stretch quite a bit in flowering but is controllable. She performes well when often-topped (not within 10 days of flower). About 20% are half height but can put out VERY colorful and flavorful flowers. Her flower structure is exquisite. Medium-sized, dense and stacked with perfectly spaced internodes and low leaf-to-calyx ratio. The V2 version has added even more citrus along with the always-welcome gasoline by moving away from the Forum Cut into a MUCH chunkier, OG-Kush-heavy version named Ethos Cookie #12.
