LookitthePanda! Look at the nice jar this gram comes in!  What a value already!

PhatPanda is the fastest growing marijuana producer/processor.  Period.  i502 Licensed producers, processors, and retailers all report their financial information to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (which used to be the Washington State Liquor Control Board, they didn't want to change the stationary).  The WSLCB makes all sales information publicly available, as well as the tax burden of each organization.  I really appreciate what PhatPanda has been able to do - they're just entrepreneurs with a great business plan, excellent product, great marketing, and value.  They're one of the many companies doing #WAPot right.

Animal Cookies is one of those strains that always intrigued me.  Girl Scout Cookies x Fire OG, both of which have similar roots in OG strains, and therefore Durban Poison as a shared heritage.  It's bound to be a really balanced high, with that heavy indica and heavy sativa roots.  It really is a True Hybrid, and it's well balanced.

These flowers I got are all little nuggets that are pretty dense with hairs and looked a solid green.  In light, out of the jar that green is very vivid.  The orange hairs are likewise bright and sturdy.

The smell.  Oh that smelly smell.. This is pungent and very sour.  Like, mouth-watering sour.  When you crush the buds, the smell becomes expansive.  Good thing this is in glass, because this smells loud.

Smoking this is equally as huge an experience.  The buds are tasty sour, and there's big citrus flavor in this.  On the exhale is when this gets really interesting because there definitely is an aftertaste like baked goods.  I vape an e-cig and I've had quite a few 'baked goods' type vapes (cakes, pies, bread flavors, etc), and this is a really recognizable - but indistinct - type of flavor.  It's almost like a bready sugar cookie, or a ginger-less gingerbread cookie.

Overall the high is very well balanced.  I was chill and relaxed and I had some serious flights of fancy.  My thoughts just wandered all over the place and I was inventive as could be.  I've actually solved a pretty tough floorplan issues I'd been wrestling with in my office because it came to me on Animal Cookies.  Fantastic, just don't try to get any solid work done.
