Gril Scout Cookies AKA GSC
Hey folks! It’s time once again to take a closer look at one of our favorite cannabis strains so that we can learn more and smoke smarter. This week we’re going to be looking at a strain that tends to invoke delight in cannabis users from all walks of life: Girl Scout Cookies. This happy little bud is a staple of the cannabis community due to its sky-high THC potential and sweet, dessert like taste profile.
Who baked these cookies?
Pop quiz, what do mid 90’s punk bands and the majority of popular cannabis strains have in common? Answer: They probably came from California. Girl Scout Cookies is no exception to this rule, tracing its origins back to America’s Land of Milk and Honey. There is a growing group in the USA known as the Cookie Family who claim to be the progenitors of Girl Scout Cookies. They have become famous in the legacy and regulated markets under the Cookies brand. Girl Scout Cookies genetic make-up comes from a generous helping of OG Kush and a dollop of Durban Poison. The end result is a potent strain so good it took its name from one of the most delightful baked confections on the planet.
Speaking of baked…
When imbibing GSC, one can expect a largely euphoric high followed by a mad rush to eat everything in your pantry. Not only is GSC one of the best tasting strains thanks to its terpene profile but it is also widely recognized as a true munchy strain, which is one of the many reasons it’s popular in the medical community with those who have difficulty maintaining an appetite. Once you’re done turning your fridge into a barren landscape, you’ll likely experience the full body relaxation that usually accompanies the latter stages of the GSC high. This full body feeling is great for those who use cannabis for pain management, making GSC a go to for those who are looking to tackle full body pain without relying on pharmaceuticals.
These great effects are owed not only to the tendency of GSC strains to hit the high end of the THC range but are also the end result of a suite of awesome terpenes. With a combination of linalool, myrcene, limonene and caryophyllene this strain is a veritable clown car of some of the best terpenes you can find.
With a strain this beloved, any grower looking to make a high THC flower has probably dabbled in some GSC genetics. As a result, you can find GSC hiding in plain sight under slight name variations, like the Platinum Cookies by Palmetto. As always, pay attention to the terpenes and the concentration thereof to figure out if it’s going to be the cookie you’re looking for. Cause no one enjoys going to bite into a chocolate chip cookie only to discover it’s oatmeal raisin.
