As I write this I am in the middle of my third suspension from IG. Last night, when I smoked Platinum Scout V2, I was just celebrating the end of my second suspension. By the time you, dear reader, read this I may have no choice but to communicate through North Korean social media. 

Platinum Scout V2 is a really solid bud. If I didn’t change strains every day, this is one that would be a midweek go to for just chilling, relaxing, putting my feet up and taking a break from it all. The high will not leave you stoned or incapacitated, but it will engage you to your couch and television, remove you from your worries and stress, and will not contribute to a hard day’s work (though it won’t completely kill it either). 

Platinum Scout V2’s aroma is candyish with a mild earthiness and accents of gas fumes. Its taste is pleasant and smooth with a stronger earthy and gas flavor with a sweet finish. 

This is a strain which I really wish I was smoking as I write these words. It is probably on the strong side for novice users—but perhaps close enough for novice users who prepare their environment and take very small hits. Experienced users will come to this bud like a favorite hoody or pair of jeans which always fits and is always comfortable.
