Perfect GSC Strains
Girl Scout Cookies is the embodiment of everything right with a cannabis strain. On appearance, the dense, green buds with purple hues, and surrounded by fiery orange pistils are a delight to the eyes. Even more so is the remarkably thick, sticky resins. From the time the pre-flowers appear and more so towards the end of the flowering period, it exudes a sweet, earthy fragrance with a candy-like quality.
This strain is incredibly potent - and much more so than its genetic forerunners OG Kush and Durban Poison. At most, it could have as much as 28% THC. Hence, even when the dosage is moderate, it could still induce a time-bending cerebral high and complemented by full-body relaxation.

CBD Girl Scout Cookies

Do-Si-Dos, named after an oatmeal sandwich cookie, must have something in its flavors. As it turns out, this Indica hybrid features Girl Scout Cookies as one of its genetic forerunners - in a cross with OG Kush phenotype Face Off OG. As can be expected, it boasts of sweet, citrusy scents with spicy, floral notes.

And then the physical effects slams into the body, bringing calm, easing tensions away, and leaving one in a hazy bliss.

Once upon a time, many people call this strain "Larry Bird" of NBA fame. However, it did not take long before "Gelato" took hold. Quite simply, its tantalizing aroma is too pleasant to resist. Although leaning towards the Indica, its effects are more balanced.
Upon consumption, Gelato induces an intense euphoric high, thus calming the nerves and uplifting the mood. Accompanying the upbeat feeling is mental clarity, heightened focus, and creativity. Eventually, a profound body buzz swarms in, easing tensions, and brightening up the day further. However, it does not have sedating effects, thereby allowing one to carry on for hours with tasks and activities.
At home, Gelato feminized seeds grow into beautiful, compact plants that develop buds with dark purple hues, surrounded by fiery orange pistils and a luxurious coat of trichomes. It takes 8 to 9 weeks to complete the flowering period and then could provide up to 600 grams per square meter.

The number of delightfully tasting hybrids in this family continues to rise. Among the more prominent ones, Wedding Cake has to rank high. Boasting of the same sweet, earthy odor that helped catapult Girl Scout Cookies to the pinnacle of best-tasting strains, the addition of Cherry Pie enhanced the flavors with fruity, vanilla notes.
Typical of its lineage, the THC level of Wedding Cake is in the mid-20s, and should never be underestimated. It kicks off the high with an initial burst of euphoria, ushering in happiness and an overwhelming sense of elation. After half an hour or so, a powerful stone hits the body, obliterating stress and tensions. Such a sublime experience is relaxing but also leaves one in a heavy couch-lock.
Growing Wedding Cake feminized seeds is perfect at home. It grows into compact plants with a structure that resembles a pine tree. Amidst emerald green leaves, the enormous colas take on bleached-coloring during the late flowering stage, mainly due to the thick coat of trichomes. The generous harvest, up to 600 grams per square meter, makes this hybrid suitable for extracting kief or concentrates.
Girl Scout Cookies may have met its match with the sedating Pink Panties. The scandalous-sounding hybrid added complexity to the aroma, introducing Kush odor to the sweet, earthy scents. As a result, many people proclaimed the progeny named Sunset Sherbet as the heir to the original GSC.
Typical of the cookie family, its effects start with cerebral stimulation - gentler compared to others in the same lineage. Then, the familiar heavy-hitting physical effects kick into the body. It leaves one in a tranquilizing bliss, feeling euphoric yet preferring to sit still, lost in oblivion.
The feminized Sunset Sherbet seeds grow into short, bushy plants with numerous, firm branches. Its foliage, with tight internodal gaps, is dense and requires regular pruning and trimming to keep air circulating. Once the flowering period starts, it develops medium-sized conical-shaped buds surrounded by orange pistils and frosty white trichomes.
After 8 to 9 weeks flowering, it is possible to harvest up to 300 grams per square meter. To ensure such yields, use the Sea of Green technique.
