Appearance, Aroma, and Taste
The buds are often light green coated with a silver sheen that resembles actual platinum. They are fairly dense and come in big and small nugs. The aroma of Platinum OG is very typical of kush strains. With parents like Master Kush and OG Kush, this strain is expected to be very earthy and piney. There may be some hints of wood and gas also. The smoke is quite harsh as any strong indica is and tastes very earthy on the tongue.
