After making our way through an entire 1g cartridge of Select Elite Platinum Kush, we believe that this high-potency cartridge deserves an overall score of 4.6 out of 5. As always, we appreciate the convenience and fast activation time that vape cartridges provide, and at over 80% THC, the effects of our Select Elite cartridge were unsurprisingly potent.
We were a little bit disappointed with the flavor of our cartridge, however, which was relatively nondescript. Additionally, our 1g cartridge cost almost $60, and 0.5g cartridges cost $30. Outside of California, it’s likely that these prices are lower, but Select Elite cartridges are undeniably pricey.
As a cross between OG Kush and Afghani, Platinum Kush is named for the thick layer of crystals that cover this strain’s buds, and PK has a sweet, earthy taste. This iconic flavor was conveyed reasonably well into vape cartridge form in the Select Elite Platinum Kush vape cartridge, but we couldn’t help wishing that this strain’s terpenes came through a little bit more strongly.
Since it contained highly refined distillate, the vapor produced by our Select Elite Platinum Kush vape cart had a light texture, and it didn’t cause throat pain upon inhalation. Since it contains such a high concentration of THC, we were somewhat surprised that our Platinum Kush cart wasn’t harsher.
We started feeling the effects of our Select Elite Platinum Kush THC vape cartridge almost immediately after inhalation, which is to be expected when vaping cannabis. We were a little bit surprised, however, when the primary effects of our vape cartridge wore off after just over an hour had passed. With most vape cartridges we’ve tried, the effects last somewhat longer.
While they lasted, however, the effects of our Select Elite Platinum Kush vape cartridge were certainly potent. This indica strain provided very soporific effects, and after testing our Platinum Kush cartridge during the day, we decided to use it again before bed to help with sleep.
Here’s a brief summary of everything you need to know about the activation time and effects of Select Elite Platinum Kush:
Select is owned by Curaleaf, one of America’s biggest cannabis companies. Select is Curaleaf’s high-end brand, and Select Elite represents the pinnacle of this top-tier product portfolio.
The Select brand also includes Select Elite Live, a live resin vape line that sacrifices a small amount of potency to provide the improved flavor of live resin terpenes. Additionally, Select produces a line of nanoencapsulated THC gummies, a line of tinctures that contain both THC and CBD, and a complete line of CBD-only products.
The Select Elite Platinum Kush vape cartridge is available in both 0.5g and 1g options, and it’s compatible with standard batteries. The vape cartridges in Select’s Elite line come in attractive, holographic packaging, and they’re available in most dispensaries in California and beyond.
Here are the key highlights of the Select Elite Platinum Kush vape cartridge:
The Select Elite line is ideal for both inexperienced THC vape users and veteran vapers who are searching for the highest-potency option available. Connoisseurs of THC vape products might prefer this brand’s Elite Live vape cartridges, which contain higher concentrations of terpenes and are more flavorful.
Due to the high price of this cartridge, Select Elite Platinum Kush is more suitable for cannabis users who are ingesting THC for recreational purposes. Medical marijuana patients who use cannabis multiple times per day would be better off choosing a less expensive cartridge.
In our experience with the Select Elite Platinum Kush vape cartridge, we found that 2-3 puffs per session provided the best dosage. Since Select’s Elite vape cartridges contain such high concentrations of THC, consider vaping slightly less when you enjoy these cartridges than you would when using lower-potency alternatives.
Before the committee gets their hands on the product and formally rates it, the BestDosage team scrapes the product packaging, scours the internet, and occasionally calls the brand directly to hunt down the most accurate information about each product.
