Girl Scout Cookies Cannabis Strain Review

By in Education

Who doesn’t love Girl Scout Cookies? No, not those Girl Scout cookies — but, the epic strain that ascended to prominence just a few years ago. Girl Scout Cookies cannabis strain hail from an impressive lineage — indica-dominant OG Kush crossed with F1 Durban.

The ubiquitous OG Kush, of course, comprises the genetic backbone of West Coast strains. While F1 Durban is the offspring of F1 and the legendary landrace strain, Durban Poison. (As a landrace strain hailing from South Africa, Durban Poison is one of the few unadulterated pure sativas in existence.)

Girl Scout Cookies is quite the looker. With various shades of light green neatly paired with orange and purple shares — and fresh scent — give it a distinctive appearance. Likewise, it possesses a rich flavor that Medical Jane describes as “brown sugar and pepper spice with a slight nutmeg undertone.”

Girl Scout Cookies: The High

By blending OG Kush and F1 Durban, prepare yourself for an intense, highly potent Sativa-inspired head high, with an Indica-influenced heavy body buzz. Most fans describe the high as pleasantly euphoric, cerebral while enveloping them with a feeling of full body relaxation. It should be no surprise, GSC has won many Cannabis Cup awards.

Earthy, pungent, and sweet, some of the most common adjectives to describe the high are: euphoric, talkative, and happy. However, many consumers also describe getting dry mouth and a serious case of the munchies (which can be a good thing for people who need to increase their appetite.

For patients looking for a strong dose of relief, GSC is a reliable and consistent strain that can alleviate nausea, appetite loss, and severe pain. It’s also a popular strain to treat migraines, anxiety, depression, chronic stress, and insomnia.

What Are Consumers Saying About Girl Scout Cookies Cannabis Strain?

Roxanne Lewis, the wife of a patient diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, credits GSC with helping her husband regain his appetite:

“My husband is a recently diagnosed stage 4 cancer patient. Eating, of course, is difficult, he’s always too tired or feeling yucky. After losing 25 lbs (and he’s thin, to begin with), by chance, we got this strain. Nowhere in the article does it say it, but this was incredible munchy weed. He’s gained 9 lbs back in 6 weeks. It’s been a blessing to him. I really wish it was more available in my area.”

On Leafly, another user who goes by “Vet,” and is a veteran of the Iraq War who is recovering from PTSD describes GSC as follows:

“Iraq war vet here, hooah. Just got back from my 7th tour of duty. Ever since #2 I’ve had severe PTSD/major depression/schizophrenia. Girl Scout Cookies really cleared most of it up for me. These meds are best used while writing lyrics. [I] was having a lot of pain in my body and now it is gone for as long as the meds are working. [It] won’t bring back 1st Class Private Ludin, but it sure as hell made me forget about the day he left us.”

A recreational and medicinal user, Murfdog19, reports:

“I finally got my hands on the legendary Cookies, and I was not disappointed. The smell and taste are unique, unlike any strain I’ve tried. Many describe the smell like fresh baked cookies, though I’d describe it more as the aftermath of cookie baking. The high is very, very nice. Anxiety, stress, and pain disappear almost instantly. The head high is quite focused. The perfect high. I typically disregard trends, as they never live up to the reputation. GSC certainly lives up to its reputation. Highly recommended!

Describing the type of cannabis consumer who GSC was made for, Jake Browne, strain reviewer in residence at The Cannabist hits the nail on the head:

“If you’re a fan of super-racy, haze-like sativas, the punch from the Girl Scout Cookies’ Kush influence make this a nice change of pace. If you’re new to recreational smoking, avoid taking a sack of uncomfortable home.”
