Girl Scout Cookies is one of the strongest hybrids in the market.

Girls Scout Cookies (GSC) is an indica dominant hybrid (60/40 blend). GSC has won several cannabis cup awards and is one of the most potent cannabis strains available today. Even without a seasoned hand, the plant produces a high enough yield to keep cultivators coming back. The sweat and earthy flavor profile (along with the high THC levels) keeps the clients requesting this beauty.

Originally produced by the Cookie Fam as a clone-only strain, several other farms have cross-bred Durban Poison and OG Kush and called the product GSC. Other varieties exist including at least one with Cherry Kush genetics mixed in. Today, GSC can be found as a clone or seed. The different varieties are known as cuts and the most common variants are the Berner Cut and the Forum Cut.

Because of how marijuana genetics work, there are three main phenotypes or expressions of GSC. One phenotype is a short indica dominant GSC. The second and third phenotypes are tall but are very different. The secondary phenotype is tall, indica dominant, and slow growing. While the third phenotype is faster growing but sativa dominant.

GSC leaves consumers feeling euphoric and happy.

This flower also provides users with a powerful couch-locking sensation. The uplifting mental high and relaxing physical experience highlight this strains broad spectrum of appeal. GSC can make new users feel paranoid when over-consumed. Some users also report headaches when consuming large quantities of Girl Scout Cookies.

Besides being potent, GSC is a long-lasting strain. Users report feeling high hours after smoking a moderate amount. This makes it ideal for patients who want longer times between dosing. But people have to stay aware of when they consume this potent flower.

It is recommended that GSC be taken in the evening or during times when all tasks are accomplished for the day. Also, have a bag of chips or a healthy snack handy, as GSC gives users a strong case of the munchies. Cotton mouth is also a common side-effect so maintaining hydration with water is recommended.
