A Gorgeous Ganja That’s Girl Scout in Name Only
As the head of the famous Cookies Family, Girl Scout Cookies Autoflower is highly sought after for both consumption (you’ll see why) and breeding (why not?). Beautifully blending the euphoric cerebral buzz of her progenitor, OG Kush with a mental liveliness reminiscent of her other ancestor, Durban Poison, this strain was always going to be something of a distinguished lady.
Sweet and fruity in flavor, with a warm vanilla spiced smoke and a THC level that reaches up to 25%, you can see why GSC’s attributes have been desirable for breeding with so many other strains - she’s the gorgeous ganja behind Blue Cookies, Wookies and Wedding Cake amongst others on the 420 menu.
Distinguishable for her enlivening high and soothing body-buzz, she’s also a favored cannabis for consumers who smoke for medicinal purposes, and easily relieves a variety of painful physical ailments whilst tackling psychological struggles with joy and delight.
Guaranteed to grow, Auto GSC is easily to cultivate into a sturdy Indica structure with a fast life cycle and a healthy, bountiful harvest of tasty nugs. She’s a great option for those wanting to grow a decent harvest but with limited space, and she doesn’t require much experience to manage successfully in 8 to 9 weeks.
Flavor and Fragrance of Girl Scout Cookies
When it comes to the taste and scent of Girl Scout Cookies, expect vastly different experiences, as there’s a deal of variety to the two (though either way you’re consuming a rich decadence of cookie delights).
A whiff of her scent will reveal a herby, earthiness underpinned with hints of nutmeg and sweet vanilla spice that’s warming and homey. As for taste, that's a different story: a little lemon, a little cherry, and a fair smattering of woodiness combines to create a fruity kick to delight the palate.
Since this lady boasts a whopping 25% to 28% THC volume, she’s an immediate hit and a soaring high to be enjoyed in both the mind and the body.
Beginning with an instantly uplifting wave of euphoria, a toke of Girl Scout Cookies sends the spirit into the stratosphere, where everyday troubles become a tiny dot in the distance, immediately forgotten. Surfing the wave of her high, she’ll evoke positivity and optimism in even the most serious of pessimists, promising escape from the drudgery of life whilst lifting your mood.
Following this, her cerebral high will find you exhilarated and pushed into the creative, sociable, and sometimes even giggly zone that dissipates into intense hunger - definitely a joint for before dinner.
As the high sets in good and proper, relaxation will begin to envelop you, soothing you from the top of the head to the tips of your toes, spreading warmth and comfort through every limb and digit. It’s easy to understand why smoking GSC can leave you couchlocked if you don’t take your time and savor every hit, and after several hours a drowsiness is sure to follow.
Medical Uses of Girl Scout Cookies Autoflower
Smoking Girl Scout Cookies for leisure is only the beginning of her plethora of wonders. Since the herb contains considerable amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and terps such as linalool, myrcene, a-pinene, limonene, terpinolene and B-caryophyllene, you can expect full-body relaxation and relief with a joint of this stuff, and she’s well-loved for calming muscle tensions, hyperactivity and cramps.
Well known for her analgesic properties, this herb is a crowd-pleaser amongst sufferers of migraines, arthritis and fibromyalgia. When you consider her pain-relieving effects alongside her antiinflammatory and antimicrobial properties too, you can see why she’s so coveted - GSC doesn’t just mask pain, she actually mitigates it.
Given this strain’s serious munchies kick and effectiveness in reducing nausea, she’s also a handy lady to have around for those who struggle with eating disorders, lack of appetite and various stomach discomforts.
As for mental aid, Girl Scout Cookies has an impressive effect on stress, depression and anxiety too - soothing away low mood and negative thoughts with her powerful, calming sedation. This can be particularly beneficial for those struggling with sleep disorders as well, since the slumber that follows a joint of GSC is deep and restful.
Given the high THC content of this strain, we recommend proceeding with caution if you’re a new consumer or are sensitive to such things. Savoring these buds with small doses is the best approach if you must - and larger doses could result in less desirable side effects such as dry eyes and mouth, paranoia, anxiety or dizziness.
Growing Girl Scout Cookies Autoflower
By meticulously blending the original Indica structure of Girl Scout Cookies with the fast-growing hardiness of a Ruderalis, this autoflowering strain can only be seen as an improvement to the plant.
However, despite these enhancements, her reduced lifespan does have a few shortcomings that must be accounted for when growing. As she’s a short, swift growing lady of no more than 2 to 3 feet when fully grown, these plants will not have the time required to recover from injury or other issues and so care must be taken to keep them as healthy as possible.
Despite this, GSC Auto develops much like her predecessors: vivid green foliage and sturdy, close-packed branches laden with small-medium buds and frosty, glistening trichomes. Like many strains, her bag appeal can be vastly improved with a hint of purple - expose these plants to cooler temperatures overnight to draw those vibrant colors out, but only if you know exactly what you're doing!
Lower fan leaves are likely to need trimming back when this petite lady’s foliage gets a little too heavy, allowing her to breathe and you to focus on nurturing her colas. Generous dosings of magnesium and calcium are great for encouraging her growth and ensuring these plants don't fall prey to nutrient deficiencies.
A warm environment is key too, and we recommended keeping Girl Scout Cookies Auto plants at a comfortable 20° to 26°C, with a relative humidity (RH) level of around 30% to 50%. Lighting is important too - 18 to 24 hours a day of 600 watt light is crucial for the 8 to 9 weeks of her growth cycle. Stick with these few rules, and you can expect a healthy yield of 600 grams of mouthwatering nugs per square meter - with up to 9 plants in each meter squared.
If you prefer to grow outdoors, GSC Auto is still a viable option in warm, Mediterranean climates, and can yield up to 150 grams - though this will flounder if weather conditions are unpleasant or erratic in any way. In the northern hemisphere, June and July often offer the most favorable weather for this strain, and you’ll be able to harvest around September time.
The original Cookie matriarch, Girl Scout Cookies is a joy to grow and a joy to smoke. A gorgeous ganja hybrid with a THC level that hovers around the 25% mark, this is a lady who gives it her all in every area.
Rolling a joint GSC is a surefire way to satisfy your tastebuds, your mind and your soul, since. Expect your tongue to be tantalized with a fruitiness that evokes lemon and cherry flavors alongside a piney woody taste that serves only to please the palate. Breathe in her warm, spicy vanilla scent and find yourself comforted long before the high hits. And when her high does hits, it hits good.
Uplifting you with a wave of euphoria that has your spirit in the stratosphere, GSC soon overwhelms the body, drawing you down into a soothing comfort blanket of warmth that wipes away the cares of the day in no time at all.
If medicinal marijuana is more your concern than the high alone, look no further - this is a strain of many talents, and can not only provide ample pain relief from a variety of ailments, but soothe psychological sores too.
Growing GSC Auto is simple enough for even more inexperienced growers, and with some pruning and care for her environment you can easily find yourself with nugs a-plenty, and a sizable yield of 600 grams per square meter.
