Last year, K.C. and I did Girl Scout and cannabis pairing for Willamette Week. Below are our original notes.
Samoas Pairing Notes
Hindu Kush was chosen for its tasty and stinky combination of sweet, nutty and earthy flavors. It made sense that the toasted coconut in the cookie would pair well because it takes on the flavor of other foods well.
Major terpenes: Caryophyllene, Pinene, Humulene
Chocolate Chunk was brought on board for its strong and sweet aroma of chocolate. The hope was to enhance the chocolate taste in the cookie by adding more sweet and bitter flavors.
Major terpenes: Myrcene, Linalool, Limonene
Tagalongs Pairing Notes
When searching for strains to combine with this cookie, we focused our attention on varieties with a combination of sweet, nutty and chocolate notes — like Trainwreck. The most prominent taste in Train Wreck is it’s nuttiness as well as a sweet, almost lemon flavor. We wanted to mellow out the peanut butter and turn the sweetness in the chocolate. Major terpenes: Limonene, Myrcene, Caryophyllene
The sweet and nutty flavors in OG Kush are what stuck out in the selection process because the aim of pairing these aromas and tastes was to great a synergy of flavors. Think of it of the weaving of flavors to create more complex ones. Doubling up on the sweetness along take its potency to a deeper level.
