Considered one of California’s most well-known strains of medical marijuana, Girl Scout Cookies is truly a strain with a reputation that precedes it. Extremely high in THC content, this hybrid strain has taken home several Cannabis Cup awards and has become known as a heady hybrid that relieves severe pain, nausea, and appetite loss.

Girl Scout Cookies, The Hybrid

Girl Scout Cookies is a hybrid strain that’s a cross between OG Kush (known for being the genetic backbone for many other hard-hitting strains) and Durban Poison, a pure sativa strain originally from Durban, South Africa. These properties make the high offered as one that is extremely euphoric and cerebral, with high levels of relaxation. Due to the Durban Poison influence, some smokers say that Girl Scout Cookies will make you feel physically relaxed, while mentally hyped up. But be warned, because of the high THC levels this strain is not for the faint of heart, and even old timers would be wise to take it slow at first.

Girl Scout Cookies As A Plant

As a plant, Girl Scout Cookies produces very dense buds that bear similar traits of its forebearers; they’re highly crystallized, and peppered with light orange and golden hairs, and purplish leaves. Immediately at first glance one thinks of OG Kush, however these buds are more subtle and less bright. Those cultivating the strain on their own can expect wait times of 9-10 weeks before flowering, and it can thrive in both indoor and outdoor environments. Typically, these plants can produce up to two ounces of buds each, and they’re also known to be highly resistant to molds and pesticides.

Girl Scout Cookies has a rather sweet, earthy taste, and it’s also known to elicit an appetite. Like we said above, it’s quite a powerful strain and its effects can last an entire day in some cases. However, it’s a perfect strain for those who are suffering from extreme pain or anxiety, mood disorders, insomnia, and other physical ailments that weigh on both the body, and the mind. Girl Scout Cookies is often prescribed to those suffering from serious ailments such as post traumatic stress disorder, anorexia, cachexia, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
