Back Forty Mandarin Cookies Review

Back Forty's Mandarin Cookies is a sativa-dominant cultivar that's know for a tangy citrus flavour with hints of sweet nuttiness.

Back Forty Mandarin Cookies is a sativa-dominant flower that was created by crossing a Cookies strain with Mandarin Sunset.

Although we were unable to find anything on Back Forty’s website, typically this strain is known for it’s strong tangy citrus aroma/flavour with a nutty undertone on the exhale. This is largely due to the dominant terpenes being limonene, alpha-bisabolol, alpha-humulene and beta-caryophyllene.

Naturally we’re curious how this will compare to Weed Me’s Mandarin Cookie which we thought was a great product.

The flower arrived from Back Forty in a matte grey bag with resealable zipper opening. This package was different from the silver foil traditionally used by this brand. Anyways, we tore open the bag expecting a strong smell but only detected a moderately strong citrus aroma that was sweet and contained a mild undertone of earthy herbs.


We dumped the contents out and noticed Back Forty did not include a humidity shield, however the dry buds were not the biggest concern as we noticed there was a lot of extra stems which had not been an issue with previous flowers from this brand. The nugs were small to medium in size, fairly dense with specks of purple and a thick layer of trichomes but compared to Fruity Pebbles OG from Back Forty, this product looks a bit unkempt.


The flavour complimented the aroma nicely even though we found both of them milder then expected. Plus, the smell gives you the impression that the taste will have a sweet citrus element which is certainly does deliver. Although not overpowering like Back Forty’s Wedding Pie strain, you can still taste the citrus on every inhale and exhale.


Listed with 23.7% THC content and a price tag of $22.95 for 3.5 grams, we found Back Forty’s Mandarin Cookies delivered a strong sativa high for a reasonable cost. It created an uplifting high that felt relaxing and was further amplified with hints of euphoria. This flower is one of those strains you can enjoy during the day without risk of feeling burned out. Overall a decent product but not our favourite from Back Forty.

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.

Have your say!
