Overview of Girl Scout Cookies

This popular Bay Area transplant is favored for its relaxing physical high and potent mental stimulation. Promoted by rappers like Berner and Wiz Khalifa, Girl Scout Cookies boasts a high-profile reputation as an energizing hybrid that doesn't sacrifice a cerebral high.

A winning Cannabis Cup and veteran, Girl Scout Cookies is just as sweet and joyful as its culinary counterpart.

Potential Positive Effects

The uplifting and creative effects from Durban Poison classifies Girl Scout Cookies as a perfect smoke to decompress from life's daily pressures. Users report being able to melt away, easing 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. Users have reported initial head highs followed by traveling tingling feelings.

Potential Medical Effects

Medical patients often cite improvements in symptoms of depression, physical pain, anxiety, nausea, migraines and even insomnia. The high ranges from two to three hours, with a peak within the first half hour of smoking.

Potential Negative Effects

Many medical users find Girl Scout Cookies to have side effects of sleepiness and appetite stimulation. Other possible negative effects include dizziness, dry mouth, dry eyes or paranoia.

Lineage of Girl Scout Cookies

The San Franciscan dispensary The Hemp Center bred the 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 California hybrid cannabis strain.

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%, remaining low.

The strain's evolution since it left the Golden State can create some variance between dispensary selections. Either way, good Girl Scout Cookie strains will leave a delicious combination of clean citrus and earthy undertones.

Growing Girl Scout Cookies

Patients 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.

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. Girl Scout Cookies varies from crop to crop.

Where to find Girl Scout Cookies

The strain's strong scent and distinct appearance make it easy to pick - and smell - out of a line-up of jars. Sister strains include crossbreeds like Animal Cookies, lookalikes like Thin Mint Cookies and evolutions like the indica-dominant Cookies. Girl Scout Cookies is one of the most popular strains across North America including California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Michigan, and Nevada.
