If you look at the lineup of cannabis strains on the market today, there simply is a lot in terms of overall varieties and choices for you as a marijuana enthusiast. There are nearly about a thousand strains that exist today and that number is still growing thanks to the legalization of marijuana in many North American countries and to the rise of different breeding techniques and technology when it comes creating new strains. However, Girl Scout Cookies seeds still stand out as some of the more popular choices for growers and enthusiasts alike in the marijuana community.
What is Girl Scout Cookies?
Girl Scout Cookies or GSC is one of the most popular and successful cannabis strains in the entire history of marijuana. It has won multiple awards and is one of the more higher selling seeds and buds you can find anywhere else. That is because this strain boasts of its superior quality and crazy potency.
With THC levels of at least 25%, this strain is crazy potent and is something you cannot and should not take too lightly or else you will end up with an experience that is quite unsatisfactory. Nevertheless, if you know what you are doing, Girl Scout Cookies will give you a memory that will stay with you for a very long time.
GSC still continues to sell really big in many dispensaries in America and in other parts of the world similar to how real girl scout cookies quickly sell out in many US neighborhoods. But why is this strain so popular?
First of all, GSC has a unique and somewhat appealing aroma that is reminiscent of the classic skunky kind of sensation your nose gets from the usual marijuana bud. It is quite distinct in the sense that it comes with a minty scent that you might find very pleasing.
Next, the taste can have a profile that is quite different from the aroma. It still has the earthy skunkiness but it has an uplifting kind of sweetness that your tongue will certainly enjoy as you dive into a blissful kind experience.
After your senses enjoy the uniqueness of the aroma and flavor profile of this high-quality strain, GSC will attack the rest of you with its premium and potent effects. With THC levels that are at least 25%, you can really say that this strain is something that can kick you off your feet to provide you with an overall relaxing buzz that hits both your mind your body.
It first attacks your head with a euphoric kind of high that comes from its sativa side. After feeling such effects, you will notice yourself getting more creative by the minute as a healthy dose of inspiration will make you more productive. At this point, you will feel a euphoric breeze washing over you to uplift your mood and to shoo away any kind of negative and stressful thoughts that are clouding your head.
While GSC’s effects are more mental than physical, you can still expect yourself to feel the body relaxing effects that indica strains are known for. You might feel a bit of a surge in your energy but your body stays relaxed and calm at all times. And if you happen to take in a high dose of Girl Scout Cookies, you might end up couch-locked though such a phenomenon is quite rare. Nevertheless, what you can be sure of is that GSC’s high will last for a very long time because of how potent it is.
Where did Girl Scout Cookies come from?
Because of how premium its effects are, Girl Scout Cookies certainly comes from strains that are just as high-quality as it is. It is actually the lovechild of the landrace strain Durban Poison and OG Kush, which stands as the backbone of many West Coast strains.
Durban Poison is a landrace strain that is purely sativa. It comes from the African port city of Durban. This strain is popular for its unique taste and aroma because of how it has a profile that extremely natural in the sense that you really see Mother Nature’s touch the moment you get a taste and a smell of it. The moment you get a taste of it, you will notice hints of zesty fruits hitting your taste buds and your nasal senses. It comes with a lemony kind of flavor that also has a hint of vanilla and anise that comes complete with a rich creaminess.
When it comes to effects, Durban Poison has the classic sativa kind of high that is very pure. It does not have the couch-locking kind of high that some strains have and is something that keeps you energetic and productive throughout the day. In that sense, Durban Poison is a great strain to use if you want to focus on a certain task or job. That makes it a good daytime strain.
Meanwhile, OG Kush is one of the more popular strains in the entire world not only because of its effects but also because it is the genetic backbone of a lot of other strains. Of course, GSC is included in the long list of strains that come from OG Kush.
OG Kush is a hybrid strain that has both mind and body effects. What that means is that it has a heady kind of high that provides you with an uplifting and euphoric type of high you probably will not forget. And as soon as the heady high washes on, the body buzz takes effect to make you feel a good kind of relaxation that calms your body in a moderate kind of couch-lock.
When both Durban Poison and OG Kush were combined, Girl Scout Cookies was born. This strain carries the potency and amazing flavors and effects of both of its parents but also has its own unique touch to it. That is the reason why GSC is a very popular strain all over the world.
