What happens when you cross a pure sativa landrace with a classic Californian OG? A game-changing miracle known as Girl Scout Cookies, that’s what. This is a strain that arguably beats all others when it comes to smell and flavour, with a kick that could floor an elephant. But where does the Girl Scout Cookies strain come from? Who first created Girl Scout Cookies weed? Who is responsible for all of those delicious Girl Scout Cookies flavours?

What are the origins of the Girl Scout Cookies strain?

Girl Scout Cookies, known these days as GSC (to avoid annoying the Girl Scouts of America), is an OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid. It has also been known as Berner Cookies, or even Berner’s Cookies, named after rapper and cannabis entrepreneur, Berner (real name, Gilbert Anthony Millam, Jr). Berner created the strain with a group of growers now known as the Cookie Family, or Cookie Fam (if you’re really hip). These are the guys responsible for Sunset Sherbet and Cherry Pie, classic strains also known for their mouth-watering flavors.

GSC is everything we love about cannabis strains, especially in the looks department. She normally boasts a lush, green foliage but a little cold will give her a deep, velvety, purple finish. Zoom closer to see fiery orange pistils surrounding light green and purple buds, dappled with a thick, twinkling coat of trichomes. Her numbers look pretty amazing, too…

What are the effects of Girl Scout Cookies Strain?

The way one consumes GSC is down to individual preference. Smoke or vape the buds or make yourself some edibles. The delicious taste and aroma make her one of the finest marijuana strains for brownies and candy, but whatever you decide to do with GSC, take baby-steps. Do not underestimate the potency of this strain.

GSC has up to 28% THC. We have mind-bending euphoria, positivity, optimism… it can definitely improve the mood. Many feel a burst of invigoration that cascades into fits of giggles and expansive, creative thinking. And if you have a jar of actual cookies at hand, you’ll enjoy them like never before.

What does Girl Scout Cookies smell like?

If you think GSC gets a ten for looks (and she does, definitely) just wait until you get a load of that aroma! Like a freshly-baked lemon drizzle cake, GSC is warm and sweet with hints of delicious, zingy citrus.

And what about the flavor?

When you blaze her up, she takes on delicious notes of pepper, a spicy seasoning that completes an absolute taste sensation. This is a terpene profile second to none.

Is Girl Scout Cookies medicinal?

With a THC level that can hit 28%, GSC is one of the hardest-hitting cannabis cultivars ever created. If you’re looking for something to relieve pain, to combat nausea or muscular strains then you’ve definitely found it. Just remember to take it easy and find the right dose for you.

Girl Scout Cookies Feminized Seeds

GSC permanently ranks high in the list of the best smelling and tastiest strains in the world. From its humble beginning in the San Francisco Bay Area back in the mid-90s, GSC has never looked back. We’ll be talking about this strain for decades.
