Sugar, Spice and All Things Nice
Proud recipient of multiple Cannabis Cups over the years, Girl Scout Cookies, aka GSC, towers above the competition as one of the most iconic strains of all time.
Decadent and delicious, she’s been around for years and continues to impress with her completely unique sensory experiences - and the kind of potency that ranks her among the hardest-hitting cannabis strains money can buy.
Engineered by combining the genetics of two equally exceptional strains - Sativa Durban Poison and hybrid OG Kush – we have in GSC a hybrid that makes for a fantastic recreational strain with a long list of therapeutic applications, boasting a 60% Indica dominance and a delightfully simple cultivation experience.
Famed primarily for her unique fragrance and flavor profile, Girl Scout Cookies also routinely tops the scales with an exceptionally high THC content. While it’s possible for batches to test as low as 17% THC (still quite a substantial amount!), you could see levels as high as a whopping 28% THC with this decadent hybrid.
Those new to the cannabis community - approach this pot powerhouse with caution until you know exactly how potent your batch really is!
This flagship hybrid strain from the infamous Cookies Family of California is the definition of award-winning genetics, an absolute winner for all types of cannabis cuisine and a quintessential and commonly reliable parent strain used to create many next generation ganja superstars - including the likes of Platinum Cookies and Thin Mint among others.
Flavor and Fragrance of Girl Scout Cookies Feminized
Once you’ve experienced a decent batch of Girl Scout Cookies, you can identify this stuff from a mile off by way of fragrance alone. There’s plenty of earthy skunkiness to the flavor profile, yet with a characteristic minty undertone you won’t find anywhere else.
Break open the buds and they burst into life with spicy sweetness, with a fragrance not dissimilar to freshly baked goods. Again, and at the risk of perpetuating a cliché, you simply have to experience GSC to understand what it is all about.
The same can also be said for the flavor profile, which brings together the most desirable characteristics of both parent strains. There’s a lemony citrus flavor that lingers on the palate, alongside an almost yeasty taste with a pronounced hit of peppermint.
Think somewhere between peppermint candy and sweet bakery items and you’ll be close to the mark.
What’s particularly appealing about Girl Scout Cookies Feminized is the strain’s remarkable diversity, delivering a beautifully balanced high that gets to work on body and mind with equal effectiveness.
Initially, there’s a huge hit of uplifting energy and inspiration, bringing on wave after wave of creativity and a sense of complete optimism. Hot on the heels of that uplift is a comprehensively relaxing sensation, sending equally powerful waves of warm euphoria throughout the entire body.
The potency of the effect will (of course) vary in accordance with the strength of the batch, though is rarely overpowering where moderate THC content is moderate.
Different people tend to react to GSC Feminized in different ways – some experiencing uncontrollable giggles, others finding themselves lost is a state of deep and satisfying self-reflection.
Given enough time, the physically sedating properties of Girl Scout Cookies become more dominant, making this far more of an evening strain than a morning or afternoon smoke.
Medical Uses of Girl Scout Cookies Feminized
There’s a long list of medical conditions and symptoms that are known to respond well to the controlled intake of Girl Scout Cookies Feminized. That said, the power and potency of these nugs make them ones to approach with caution, unless you have a relatively established THC tolerance.
Primarily, patients turn to GSC as an organic alternative to conventional medications for stress and depression, nausea, appetite loss, chronic pain, migraines and headaches. It can also be great for simply alleviating the woes of a stressful day, making for a relaxing and enjoyable evening of pure contentment.
As this hybrid is notorious for bringing on relentless bouts of the munchies, appetite issues of all kinds are no match for GSC.
Careful though, with these kinds of high THC levels, it’s easily possible to invite some of marijuana’s less desirable side effects like red-eye and dry-mouth, so you’ll want to keep well-hydrated for the duration and avoid overindulging - batches towards the more potent side of the scale can be overwhelming and incapacitating especially if your tolerance is low.
Most batches of Girl Scout Cookies contain no more than around 1% CBD, though there are specially engineered versions available with a much higher CBD content and little to no THC.
Growing Girl Scout Cookies Feminized Seeds
Bursting with beautiful colors and covered by a sugary coating of frosty trichomes, GSC plants are absolutely gorgeous to gaze at, with buds that have the kind of bag appeal that speaks for itself.
Better yet, growing Girl Scout Cookies Feminized isn’t a particularly difficult challenge. These plants definitely benefit from a decent amount of TLC, meaning any cultivation experience you have won’t go to waste. Flowering times come in at around 10 weeks, and you’ll need access to warm Mediterranean-like conditions for your crop to achieve its full potential.
Hence, growing indoors is the way to go everywhere else – ideally with a hydroponic set up.
Pest and disease resistance are both pretty good, so you’re unlikely to run into any real problems along the way. Get it right and you could be looking at approximately 60g of potent pot per plant, courtesy of reasonably compact specimens that are easy to keep under control.
Stick with the feminized version if you’re looking to grow female plants exclusively, with maximum returns in mind.
Sugar, spice and all things nice - that’s what Girl Scout Cookies Feminized is made of.
With intoxicatingly sweet, minty and herbal fragrances, GSC is widely regarded as one of the best-tasting cannabis strains on the commercial market.
Still, with a THC content that often hits 28%, indulging excessively isn’t a sensible idea. Consumed in moderation, this decadent hybrid gets to work on pain, anxiety, stress and apathy like nothing you’ll find in any traditional medicine cabinet.
