For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Platinum Cake produced by Rose Science Vie Inc. under the Pure Laine Cannabis brand. This Indica-dominant hybrid cultivar came with 15.5% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD.
This is my second Pure Laine experience after trying out some of their BC Sweet Skunk, and unfortunately, they are now batting 0 for 2. Below is a more in-depth breakdown.
- Lineage: Platinum OG x Wedding Cake
- Type: Indica-dominant
- Potency: 15.5%
- Terpene Profile: Myrcene, caryophyllene, limonene
- Packaging Details: Packaged on 03/04/21, tested/reviewed on 04/27/21, exactly 54 days later. Lot# 202103
- Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $24.90 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada ($7.11/gram)
This wasn’t a good experience, I mean, there were some signs of positivity, but most of it was just disappointing. Let’s start off with the dryness, 36% Moisture content in the container; this was drier than your mouth on a hangover.
It just doesn’t work, and it ruins the rest of the experience, whether it’s smelling dead terps, rolling up powder, or choking on dried-up grass. Of course, I rehydrated it for 24 hours with a Boveda pouch, but that’s not the point; it’s NOT MY JOB. Now for the bag appeal, it was 4 medium nugs that looked pretty frosty; everything else was popcorn, stems, and leaves.
There was nothing platinum about this cake. It felt more like a slice of cake that’s been sitting on the kitchen counter for a week.
There really wasn’t much there; I’m talking about before and after rehydration. The terps weren’t very present, and the goods were only packaged less than 2 months ago; the terpene percentages must’ve been quite low, to begin with. It smelled like weed, so I guess that’s a good sign(?).
I apologize for the bad description, but there was really nothing happening; there may have been some VERY slight skunk notes that were more apparent once this weed was milled.
The only good part here was that the smoke itself was smooth and felt thick. When it comes to actual flavor, though, this Platinum cake did not emit many flavors. I got some herbs on the inhale. What I’m trying to say is that this tasted somewhat like weed.
There was nothing “platinum” about this cake; actually, it was more of a “sitting on the kitchen counter for a week getting stale” piece of cake.
Although this may have been my favorite aspect from this entire Platinum Cake review, it still didn’t wow me; it was just alright. The “high” came in fairly quickly, within about 10 minutes. I felt the myrcene instantly emitted some calming effects through combustion.
I would put this in the “lazy weed” category, and I wouldn’t smoke this with any productive plans in mind. This is “end of day,” bud. The focus wasn’t there; there was a heavy brain fog once the effects wore off.
If you want to smoke both during the day and at night to keep yourself focused and energized, then you can try Glueberry Strain.
The Pure Laine Cannabis brand has not impressed me so far, whether it be their BC Sweet Skunk or this Platinum Cake. Will I give them another chance? Sure I will! Why? Just so you don’t have to!
If you want a better skunky strain, check out Skunk Cake from Coast Mountain Cannabis.
I personally wouldn’t recommend this to anybody, even if the price point seems fair. To me, a budget buy is below $6/gram, which this isn’t. Consider giving Hawaii Heartbreak Strain a try, priced at $7.97 per gram, for a significantly superior quality that will leave you in awe with its mesmerizing aroma. If you tried out some of this, let me know your thoughts below.
- Glueberry Strain: If you want a strain that can be smoked during the day and at night to keep yourself focused and energized, Glueberry Strain is worth trying. It provides a similar level of relaxation but with improved focus and energy.
- Hawaii Heartbreak Strain: Priced at $7.97 per gram, this strain offers significantly superior quality compared to the Platinum Cake. It has a mesmerizing aroma and is a better option for those seeking a more satisfying experience.
