Even though the name says “Cookie”, the taste of this strain is actually a whole lot more like candy floss. It’s light and sweet but has notes of mint, spice and chocolate to give it some balance. The aroma actually has more body than you might expect from that description. It is sweet but it’s also very earthy and some people might find it reminds them of OG Kush.
With over 20% THC and minimal CBD, Girl Scout Cookies is very definitely a “head” strain, in fact it’s a popular choice for tension headaches, anxiety, stress, and depression. It leaves users clear enough to focus for standard, everyday, tasks, although, as always, apply a bit of common sense, here, for example avoid driving when under the influence of marijuana. Although Girl Scout Cookie does deliver a clear, fresh, euphoric high, it tends to be a fairly relaxed one, which means that this strain is a decent choice if you mainly want powerful and fast-acting pain relief which will also act as a cure for the occasional bout of insomnia (particularly if it is pain-related), but if you are actually looking for an insomnia strain then you’d probably be better with a variety which has more CBD.
As an autoflowering strain, Girl Scout Cookies is one of the most forgiving and therefore beginner-friendly strains out there. Girl Scout Cookies generally maxes out at a metre or so when left to its own devices and if you’re prepared to get “hands on” with plant training, you can keep it even lower. This means that Girl Scout Cookies is potentially a feasible choice for outdoor growing on a balcony, with a grow time of 8 to 9 weeks. You also need to bear in mind that even autoflowering strains do need a certain level of care and maintenance with regard to watering, food and ventilation. Get this right and you can expect to be rewarded with a harvest of 500-650 gr/m2 of delicious weed.
