The San Franciscan dispensary, The Hemp Center, bred the cannabis strain from mellowing OG Kush and Durban Poison, a stimulating Sativa originating from South Africa's eastern coast. Few variations add Cherry Kush, another popular Northern Californian hybrid. A winning Cannabis-Cup veteran, Girl Scout Cookies is just as sweet and joyful as its culinary counterpart.
The uplifting and creative effects from Durban Poison classifies Girl Scout Cookies as a perfect smoke to decompress from life's daily pressures. While OG Kush's hybrid properties can lean on either side of the strain spectrum, Girl Scout Cookie variations tend to ease physical tension and stress. Savvy smokers remember that the strain's somewhat unfocused, cerebral buzz is best for low-key afternoons and evenings.
Depending on the local hybrid's originating strains, highs can range from euphoric and creative to mellow and soothing. The strain's evolution since it left the Golden State fosters a certain amount of variability between dispensary selections. Either way, good Girl Scout Cookie strains will leave a delicious combination of clean citrus and earthy undertones.
THC percentages solidly rank between 18-23% but can climb to 28%, depending on the breed. On average, most variations plateau at 18%. CBD rates tend to linger around 0.09 - 0.2%
Buds tend to have a pleasingly potent, mildly earthy and sweet citrus smell. Nugs are often densely packed with curling green leaves, laced with orange hairs and streaks of purples. The strain's strong scent and distinct appearance make it easy to pick - and smell - out of a line-up of jars.
Medical patients often cite improvements in stress, depression, physical pain, anxiety, nausea, migraines, and insomnia. The high ranges from two to three hours, with a peak within the first half hour of smoking. Users have reported initial head highs followed by traveling tingling feelings.
Many medical users find Girl Scout Cookies' side effects of sleepiness and appetite stimulation to be the strong dose they need. Negative attributes can include dizziness, dry mouth, dry eyes, and paranoia.
Patients and recreational marijuana consumers looking to grow Girl Scout Cookies at home can expect a moderately difficult grow with a low yield of short, bushy plants. Plant yields have been reported from 25 to 56 grams (one to two ounces) per plant from moderate amounts of fertilizer. Girl Scout Cookie plants thrive as multi-branched plants or with the sea of green method. Indoor plants typically flower within nine to 10 weeks.
Sister strains include crossbreeds like Animal Cookies, lookalikes like Thin Mint Cookies and evolutions like the Indica-dominant Cookies.
