Girl Scout Cookies, a beloved Bay Area creation, is one of the most popular hybrid cannabis strains across North America. Bred out of San Francisco, the hybrid boasts an energizing mental high and relaxing physical effects. The strain's colorful, crystallized appearance and pungent citrus sweetness make it a favorite among musicians like Wiz Khalifa and Berner.
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 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.
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.

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.
