As the story goes, this strain gets its name from its sweet, delicious aroma that is much like that of freshly baked cookies. Girl Scout Cookies became famous after hitting the Northern California cannabis scene around 2010-11. Since then there have been many fake hybrids as well as legitimate phenotypes (Thin Mint and Platinum Cookies) to hit the market. Many believe the Berner and the Cookie Fam are responsible for crafting this delicious, zing of a hybrid. However, like most strain origins, there are a few objections from the crowd as to the true origins of Girl Scout Cookies. Despite this fact, the strain itself is coveted by cannabis lovers worldwide. Let’s find out why.
Girl Scout Cookies is a cross between OG Kush, Durban Poison, and Cherry Pie. The combination of these strains creates a heady Indica dominant hybrid. This is a great strain for growing indoors in a hydro operation. However, it can be grown outdoors provided the plants get quite a bit of sun in a mediterranean climate. Growing Girl Scout Cookies is an intermediate endeavor, I wouldn’t recommend it as the first plant to try. These plants do have a pretty solid resistance to mildew and pests. Harvest will be up in about 63-70 days and each plant should produce around 60 grams of cannabis flowers.
Girl Scout Cookies is a valuable strain for anyone dealing with depression or stress. It can also relieve chronic pain. This strain is a great choice for a patient looking to induce their appetite and can treat some symptoms of ADHD.
Beware of the munchies with Girl Scout Cookies if that is not an effect you’re searching for in a strain. This one can make us seriously hungry. I’ve also found Girl Scout to deliver quite the dry eye. Many people also report panic inducing anxiety from these high-THC flowers, paranoia is another possibility.
