Extract Reviews: Girls Scout Cookies by Phyto Extractions


I purchased this product at one of Toronto’s newest store fronts, located just South of Dundas on Ossington in Toronto, “The Ossington Dispensary”. Its a really classy place with a wide selection of high grade Cannabis  and a decent selection of concentrates and edibles.  This extract was produced by Phyto Extractions and came in nice packaging with some of the pertinent information on the label such as appropriate ailments, flavour profile, and medicative effects.  I was very pleased to get my hands on such a renowned strain as Girls Scout Cookies, a cross between OG Kush and Durban Poison.  The product is a very stable shatter at room temperature and my sample came in numerous small shards rather than a slab. It sports a pleasant rose tinted hue and gives off a distinct and pungent aroma. The smell hints at a flavour profile that is best compared to the a fresh whiff of well grown and cured Jack Herer. I was taken back from my first hit, to the peppery, piney, and hashy flavour associated with good ol’ British Columbia Jack Herer. The effects of the product are similarly impressive. A strong, euphoric, heady high greets the user immediately after dabbing, with waves of relaxation quickly following.  All in all, one of the most pleasant extracts I’ve had the pleasure of sampling, with great flavour and effects, and one that I will hope to purchase again in the future. Girl Scout Cookies by Phyto Extractions is available at The Ossington Dispensary for $60 a gram.


Extract Review: Diamond Concentrates’ Django Shatter


I recently visited a East-end Toronto dispensary and picked up a couple grams of Diamond Concentrates’ Django Shatter. Take the review with a grain of salt as my experience with concentrates is somewhat limited, although I have sampled about 15 different varieties of extract in the past few months. The Shatter is very clear, and a pleasant golden hue when held to the light.  It is very stable and will shatter easily, sometimes inopportunely. While I find the more stable an extract is, the less fragrant it tends to be, this stuff is quite aromatic, and the smell matches the flavour very well. Django is listed on the slick packaging as a hybrid while Leafly suggests it is Sativa Dominant. I’m not sure what is right but the high is certainly not sluggish. I have yet to nap after overdabbing it, which sometimes happens with other products.  Flavour is mainly floral. I may detect some fuel flavour and some less pleasant grass-clippings taste is definitely present, but muted. At GW Emporium, Oshawa location this stuff is going for $60 a gram which to me is very reasonable, as I have found less superior extract for higher prices more than once elsewhere, and have yet to have a $60 gram surpass this stuff in quality.  Look out for more reviews on Toronto Cannabis dispensaries in the future, and thanks for reading.
