When properly cured, Platinum Kush can smell intensely sweet, verging on skunky, with a fermented edge. There is also an earthy, musky underpinning, keeping the aroma organic and grounded. When these thick flowers are ground up or broken open, they give off a tangy odor, reminiscent of mature cheese. When burnt in a pipe or a joint, these strong scents come together in a thick, harsh smoke that’s liable to induce coughing or watery eyes. Platinum Kush’s smoke tastes both sweet and acrid on the exhale.
