Girl Scout Cookies: A Cannabis Strain Review

[OG Kush x Durban Poison x Granddaddy Purple][60% Indica]

This strain, oh my goodness this strain. When this strain picked up steam in SF it reminded me of when Blue Dream really hit the medical scene in California. It hones in on ingenious mixture of all of my favorites from the Indica to Sativa spectrum. Durban captures an unmistakable flavor and effect, GDP is unmatched in the indica realm and OG Kush sits beautifully between the two all spry and hybridy. There is no other strain that has the same smell, look, feel, smoke like GSC; it can’t be faked.

How Does It Hit the Senses?

Grab a bit of Girl Scout and find yourself with a chunky, bulbous bud that brindles between light green and purple. It’s riddled with patches of dark orange hairs and blanketed in trichomes visible to the naked eye. The smell is just another showcase of the all star genetics and the reason for the fun name. Your first whiff graces you with the minty-pine aroma from the Durban parent and is followed with a sweet, bright earth scent from the OG and GDP lineage. All mixed together the mint and sweetness win out to make a dynamic smell combo in the nostril. That aroma is only trumped by the legendary taste that goes along with it. If what you have is real Girl Scout, and trust me there are many fakes, then you will need just one small toke to feel full effects take their course. Enjoy a flavor profile much like the smell, layered in sweet mint with undertones of musk. When you exhale the smoke will be faintly reminiscent of freshly baked cookies. Growing this strain is intermediate level stuff, it is a hardy plant that can withstand environmental issue more than others. Expect 9-10 week flowering cycle and about 60 grams per plant per harvest.

What is the Effect?

After our last review of a more novice strain I feel it necessary to rank this among the Holy Grail Kush, expert only. If you are new to medicating with cannabis don’t try this one unless you’re in a safe space and don’t have anything left to do with your evening/day. It’s hard to really put your finger on this one, I’ve seen strain reviews that call it a Sativa but I just don’t agree. Although the Durban Poison does quite a good job wrapping itself around your brain the strain even begins with that comfortable Indica softness which develops first behind the eyes.

Next you will feel the body melt into a soft relief from the GDP and OG parentage, before a bubbly and pleasant mental stimulation awakens. Durban Poison tests quite high in THCΒ but it also has great CBN, which gives off a trippy, psychedelic effect. The Girl Scout Cookies daughter has just the right amount of trippy that goes along with the mellowing body pain relief. Prepare for open mouth laughing and continuous giggles, your mood will lift about 1-5 minutes after inhalation.

Use to find relief from:Β Depression, Anxiety, Nausea, Stress, Minor pain and inflammation

Since 2011 my time has been dedicated to the cannabis industry and the patients who need it. I have worked at 5 retail dispensaries -both medical and recreational- across three states -Northern & Southern CA, AZ, WA-, and love teaching people how to properly use the cannabis plant. My free time is spent reading metaphysical works, practicing yoga and learning more about herbs.
