Girl Scout Cookies
About Girl Scout Cookies
History & Genetics
The little girls out front of the supermarket might be adorable and everything, but if you want to step up your game and dive into a flavorful, euphoric experience then these are the Girl Scout cookies you really want. GSC (formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies) is a Cannabis Cup award-winning strain comprised of OG Kush and Durban Poison and is perfect for an after-dinner treat or a nightcap.
Cookies is also sometimes known as Berner Cookies or Berner’s Cookies, after cannabis mogul and rapper Berner (whose real name is Gilbert Millam, Jr). A San Francisco native, Berner lays claim to originating the strain with a growing collective that’s become known as Cookie Fam. A master of branding, Berner shot Cookies into the mainstream when he got his product into the hands of no less than Wiz Khalifa. It has since become a staple strain across the U.S. By crossing two super popular strains, the underground breeding collective Cookie Family (or Cookie Fam) has been able to elevate THC levels to a whopping average of 25% to 28% and boast CBD and CBN contents to 1%.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
The GSC high catapults you into a wave of euphoria and tingles that encapsulate your body with very little effort. These ultra-powered buds will have you questioning space and time, while utterly gluing you to your seat. The couch lock on this is real, as are the munchies, so be sure to have a box of actual Girl Scout cookies handy for good measure. Throughout the hours-long high, you’ll experience waves of giddiness that might have you in minor giggle fits, though that will ebb and flow into introspection from time to time. This is an engaging high that will certainly have you feeling creative, but try as you might, you probably won’t have any motivation to get anything done.
GSC has some incredibly powerful effects that are beneficial to the medical community in numerous ways. First and foremost, this is a great strain for treating chronic pain, inflammation, muscle tension, and cramps. Its highly sedative properties will have you feeling relief in no time. Additionally, many use this strain as a stress reliever. The tranquilizer-like feeling of this bud puts you in a place of complete relaxation, slaying stress and even getting you ready for a good night’s sleep.
Growing techniques for this plant vary depending on who you ask, however, Cookie Fam suggests SOG indoors with either a soil or hydro set up. The flowering time on this plant is around 10 weeks or until the buds are plump and plentiful. The yield of this plant is about average, though in really stellar conditions you might be able to squeeze out a bit extra.
There are several phenotypes of this strain that include other clever plays on the plant’s former name, such as Thin Mint and Platinum Cookies, however, GSC stands out from the pack with its bright purple leafiness and twisting greenery. Additionally, the THC content of this variation truly makes it a one of a kind experience.
helps with menstrual cramps and anxiety! also helps if you have trouble sleeping!
Berner and cookie fam have been lying about the real lineage of cookies. It was an accident and the first thin mint seeds were found in their cherry kush, in a room full of floryder og, that cherry kush and another old school strain called Elvis. So any one of those plants Hermed and pollinated the cherry kush. Then we got thin mint basically.
This is my very first strain for home-growing. The strain description so very much sounded like it fits to me.It did.Already cloning and keeping it ;-)
Great flowers. Love the smell, look and taste. All around 5.
When this strain first hit, some years back, it blew my mind. It seemed to have a perfect balance of what I was looking for in: every aspect of cannabis.To this day, I’m happy to find some. It’s best used in minute amounts for low tolerance or inexperienced users, though a great ride for someone willing to commit to possibly tripping out a little. The indica comes through in the end, lulling you to sleep, if you want.The children of this strain have all been to my liking. I would imagine an expert crop of GSC would be exotic level bud.
