The little girls out front of the supermarket might be adorable and everything, but if you want to step up your game and dive into a flavorful, euphoric experience then these are the Girl Scout cookies you really want. GSC (formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies) is a Cannabis Cup award-winning strain comprised of OG Kush and Durban Poison and is perfect for an after-dinner treat or a nightcap.
Cookies is also sometimes known as Berner Cookies or Berner’s Cookies, after cannabis mogul and rapper Berner (whose real name is Gilbert Millam, Jr). A San Francisco native, Berner lays claim to originating the strain with a growing collective that’s become known as Cookie Fam. A master of branding, Berner shot Cookies into the mainstream when he got his product into the hands of no less than Wiz Khalifa. It has since become a staple strain across the U.S.
By crossing two super popular strains, the underground breeding collective Cookie Family (or Cookie Fam) has been able to elevate THC levels to a whopping average of 25% to 28% and boast CBD and CBN contents to 1% as well. If that wasn’t enough to entice you, then the flavor and aroma will definitely draw you in. At first opening of the bag the sweet, earthy aromas hit your nose and only grow sweeter as you break apart the buds. The smoke of this strain is dessert like and will certainly endear you to these light green and purple-hued buds. The fiery orange hairs and bright purple leaves make it just as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.
The GSC high catapults you into a wave of euphoria and tingles that encapsulate your body with very little effort. These ultra-powered buds will have you questioning space and time, while utterly gluing you to your seat. The couch lock on this is real, as are the munchies, so be sure to have a box of actual Girl Scout cookies handy for good measure. Throughout the hours-long high, you’ll experience waves of giddiness that might have you in minor giggle fits, though that will ebb and flow into introspection from time to time. This is an engaging high that will certainly have you feeling creative, but try as you might, you probably won’t have any motivation to get anything done.
GSC has some incredibly powerful effects that are beneficial to the medical community in numerous ways. First and foremost, this is a great strain for treating chronic pain, inflammation, muscle tension, and cramps. Its highly sedative properties will have you feeling relief in no time. Additionally, many use this strain as a stress reliever. The tranquilizer-like feeling of this bud puts you in a place of complete relaxation, slaying stress and even getting you ready for a good night’s sleep.
Growing techniques for this plant vary depending on who you ask, however, Cookie Fam suggests SOG indoors with either a soil or hydro set up. The flowering time on this plant is around 10 weeks or until the buds are plump and plentiful. The yield of this plant is about average, though in really stellar conditions you might be able to squeeze out a bit extra.
There are several phenotypes of this strain that include other clever plays on the plant’s former name, such as Thin Mint and Platinum Cookies, however, GSC stands out from the pack with its bright purple leafiness and twisting greenery. Additionally, the THC content of this variation truly makes it a one of a kind experience.
