About Collins Ave
Collins Ave or just Avenue is a hybrid of Kush Mints 11 and GTI bred by Cookies in conjunction with Seed Junkie Genetics. The scent is bizarre – creamy and tart, with citrus undertones, like Greek yogurt – and the high is like a gentle lift. You’ll feel giddy, euphoric, and your negative thoughts will just drop off your radar. Users who have issues with low appetite, pain, or fatigue take advantage of Collins Ave to give their day the boost it needs.
The strain’s trichomes grow thick, wavy, and shiny. They coat the neon green buds, which are oversized and long. They sit chunky and dense in the plant’s curly leaves, which are light green, similar to the leaves on a fern. Rapper Rick Ross said he wanted to be a “force within the cannabis industry” when he partnered with Cookies to create this strain. We’d say he succeeded.
The flavor is sour, citrusy, and sweet, like citrus berries with a hint of mint (that’s the Kush Mints 11 coming through). The scent is earthy, turning spicy, with a pall of diesel fumes and sweet mint clouding everything.
Collins Ave’s effects are perfect for encouraging your mind to accept its ability to be happy and calm. As an analgesic (or pain reliever), the strain effectively reduces muscle tension and encourages a feeling of bliss. This feeling, which is a pleasant buzz, can last for hours depending on the dose. Your energy will be slightly elevated, with the risk of feeling sedated or couch-locked staying pretty low. Instead, the strain pairs great with a day of housework, arts and crafts, a spa day, a great movie, or just laying around. A body buzz can be elevating and calming without putting you to sleep – that’s exactly what you get on Collins Ave.
We love giving growers tips for people looking for more information on starting their own garden and experimenting with some phenotypes. Unfortunately, Cookies is keeping the jar sealed on this one – you can’t purchase Collins Ave seeds anywhere. Regardless of that, we know it’s difficult to grow, flowers in around 56 days, and is named after a thoroughfare in South Florida. If you’ve ever made a drive down Miami Beach parallel to the coast, you might have been on ol’ John S. Collins’ namesake road.
Regardless of where it comes from or how hard it is to source, Collins Ave is a punchy, cerebral strain whose terpenes give it a complexly sweet, yet peppery, yet fruitlike, yet minty flavor. It even smells a bit like lavender on the finish. If you want a feel-good high without feeling like sleeping afterward, you’re on the right street.
