Fuga Mandarin Cookies R2 LSO Review

Get ready to meet Fuga's Mandarin Cookies R2 LSO, a sativa-dominant delight born from the enchanting union of Forum Cut Cookies and Mandarin Sunset. With its robust flavour, meticulously hand-trimmed buds, and a high that will transport you to a realm of focused relaxation, this strain has us buzzing with excitement. Brace yourself for a mouthwatering journey that will leave you craving more.

Fuga Mandarin Cookies R2 LSO is a delightful sativa-dominant flower resulting from the crossbreeding of Forum Cut Cookies and Mandarin Sunset. This particular strain was cultivated using organic living soil techniques, ensuring a high-quality product.

The flavour profile is described as having fruity, tangy, and vibrant characteristics. It offers a long-lasting taste that combines the complexities of citrus, herbaceous notes, and delightful cookie flavours. Having previously enjoyed similar strains from other brands, we were excited to see how it compared to Weed Me’s Mandarin Cookies or Back Forty’s Mandarin Cookies.

Upon opening the bag, we were immediately greeted by an irresistible aroma that reminded us of freshly baked sweet bread. The smell was similar to lady finger cookies, evoking a sense of warmth and comfort as if we had entered a cozy bakery. As we proceeded to grind up the flower, a burst of vibrant citrus engulfed the air. The tangy essence of oranges gracefully danced around us, infusing the atmosphere with renewed vitality. The zesty freshness invigorated our senses, harmonizing beautifully with the initial sweetness.


Fuga’s Mandarin Cookies arrived in a convenient black plastic bag with a resealable opening. The front label provided essential details, including the cannabinoid content, brand information, strain name, dominant terpenes, lot number, and package date. We appreciated the helpful diagram on the back of the package, illustrating how to open it easily and ensuring a seamless user experience.

In terms of appearance, the buds were meticulously trimmed, ranging in size from small to medium. Their dark green colour was beautifully complemented by subtle highlights, showcasing their vibrant and healthy look. Among the lush foliage, we noticed an abundance of brownish-orange pistils, adding a touch of warmth and character to the overall aesthetic.

A closer inspection revealed a moderately thick layer of trichomes, resembling glistening tiny crystals in the light. When we gently pressed the buds, they felt pleasantly spongy to the touch, suggesting an ideal moisture content. It was evident that the inclusion of a Boveda humidity shield (which had dried out) had been employed to carefully preserve the buds, ensuring their freshness and overall quality.


After rolling a joint and taking a few draws, we were pleasantly surprised by the flavour profile, which differed from the initial aroma. As we inhaled, a bold and sweet citrus taste dominated, thanks to the prominent limonene terpene. It was like biting into a juicy orange, offering a delightful burst of refreshing zest on our tongues. However, upon exhaling, a subtle hint of black pepper emerged, adding a touch of spiciness to the overall experience. While this intriguing combination of flavours caught our attention, it did cause a few coughs and minor throat irritation.


Our bag of Fuga’s Mandarin Cookies R2 LSO was part of lot number MC6CW1 and packaged on April 7, 2023. It was listed with a 28.6% THC percentage, total terpenes of 4.02% and a price of $32.95 for 3.5 grams, which we thought offered exceptional value for an outstanding sensory experience.

We experienced a delightful and mentally focused high with notably relaxing effects, without any physical tingling sensations, allowing us to unwind and find a state of tranquility. The experience brought about a calm awareness, enhancing our senses without overwhelming them. It struck the perfect balance, enabling us to maintain a clear and focused mindset while enjoying the soothing effects of the strain. Overall, Fuga’s Mandarin Cookies R2 LSO provided an enjoyable and satisfying experience, both in terms of its sensory impact and the pleasant effects it delivered.

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!
