Girl Scout Cookies or GSC is one of the most renowned strains in the world. The OG Kush/Durban Poison hybrid is a powerful strain that will rocket you into a world of euphoria. You get the best of both spectrums of a cannabis high; full body relaxation and an intense cerebral high that will make your mind wander the cosmos.
A General Overview of Girl Scout Cookies
GSC is a cannabis cup winner due to its high THC count, smell, taste and much more. The fact of the matter is that this particular strain is a well-rounded hybrid with its sweet and earthy aroma. The heavy hitting qualities and is definitely a favorite for many West Coast stoners.
Due to the popularity of this strain, many phenotypes have been made including “Platinum Cookies” and “Thin Mint” which do have slight alterations in appearance and effect. With some seriously compressed buds, sprinkled in crystals, purplish leaves and of course some red almost fire-like red hairs scattered about, this strain is something of a sight.
The smell is also very prominent and can easily stink up your car with only a few grams. It’s not as “loud” as other strains, but trust me, you don’t want to leave a bud in your car.
In relation to the cannabinoid profile, Girl Scout Cookies tend to have a lot more THC than CBD. In fact, within your average GSC strain you should find anywhere between 14%-18% THC and CBD is more around the .48% to a max of 4%.
Medicinally speaking, many patients have found that GSC is a great medicine for pain relief. Since it provides a body high as well as a cerebral high, it’s perfect for getting out and doing stuff (in small doses). It will give you enough energy to get through the day and some strong pain relief.
Additionally, patients found that GSC also works exceptionally well for nausea and appetite loss. Considering the density of the bud and the high ratio of crystals, it also becomes a perfect strain for turning into oil or butter for “Medibles”.
While the THC count varies for each particular batch, we have seen plants reach up to the 28% marker, however the average THC count sits at <20%.
Seeing that this is an Indica hybrid, you don’t want to ‘overdo’ it in the mornings as it can make you get all “spacey” and in your own mind-space. this is why we recommend small portions. If you do want to get all zonked up, we highly recommend you smoke this at night time. Or turn it into edibles for a truly deep body sensation.
Once more, we recommend caution when eating it as well. We have seen many stoners indulge in one too many brownies ending up in a world of relaxation.
