Girl Scout Cookies is an Indica dominant hybrid that’s taken the cannabis world by storm in recent years. Starting off with an incredible smell and taste profile that features a hint of cotton candy, and finishing with a powerful high that leaves people feeling relaxed and euphoric, this one’s pretty much got it all.
Girl Scout Cookies buds range anywhere from 18% to 28% THC. To give you a better idea of what that means, the average Indica strain has right around 12.5% THC. The higher than average THC content of Girl Scout Cookies has played a huge factor in its meteoric rise to cannabis prominence.
The Indica side of Girl Scout Cookies induces powerful body highs that will leave smokers feeling super relaxed, and maybe even sleepy or lethargic. The next level relaxation you’ll experience after a few puffs of Girl Scout Cookies is perfectly complemented by the sweet sense of trippy euphoria you’ll get from the strain’s Sativa side.
The final result is a well-balanced high that is powerful yet pleasurable. You’ll be fully relaxed, happy, and euphoric.
Because it’s a fairly strong strain, new smokers should probably start with smaller doses. But even for heavy hitters, a big dose of Girl Scout Cookies is enough to keep you buzzed all day long.
Another key component of Girl Scout Cookies’ popularity is its smell and flavor. Most people describe the smell as sweet with a slight earthiness that reminds them of cotton candy.
That profile carries over pretty well into the taste of the smoke, which is a nice mix of smoky fruit and sweet flavors.
Because this one hits pretty hard in the body high department, it’s best for evening and night time use. For recreational uses, settings where you’re looking for a lazy sense of relaxation are best. And if the head high aspect of Girl Scout Cookies hits you particularly hard, you may experience a creative spark that could help inspire you with some new ideas.
The powerful high produced by this strain makes it a good choice for a number of medical applications. It can be very effective at treating chronic aches and pains, and can also help people struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Girl Scout Cookies is often prescribed for eating disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
Girl Scout Cookies is the baby of papa OG Kush and mama Durban Poison. The father plant is itself a popular hybrid that’s pretty evenly split between Indica and Sativa. The mother plant is a pure Sativa.
This is a good strain for growers of all experience levels, even beginners. It can be grown indoors and outdoors. Girl Scout Cookies plants do especially well in hydroponics systems and the Sea of Green method. Expect your plant to put out flowers in nine to ten weeks. The buds will be twisted columns of green accented by bright orange hairs.
