Girl Scout Cookies, or GSC for short, is a strain popular for marijuana delivery. Named after those delightfully sweet mint cookies sold by Girl Scouts everywhere, its flavor and aroma cement its popularity, and its numerous awards, which include the reputable and highly exclusive High Times Cannabis Cup. Of all the strains out there, GSC is among the most iconic and famous of all.
As tribute to the founder of Cookie Fam, the collective responsible for breeding this strain, other names for GSC include Berner or Berner’s Cookies. Rapper and cannabis mogul Berner, named Gilbert Millam, Jr., started the underground collective Cookie Fam in San Francisco, which crossed OG Kush with Durban Poison to create Girl Scout Cookies. Berner gave Wiz Khalifa buds, which quickly shot them to fame.
GSC is expresses Indica dominance, which it inherits from its OG Kush genetics. Durban Poison, a Sativa strain, passes its Sativa genes into this strain, but it has for more Indica characteristics than it does Sativa. Although different plants will vary individually, it is typical for GSC to inherit about 60 percent Indica, and around 40 percent Sativa. This is a nice, evenly balanced blend ideal for most consumers.
By crossing OG Kush and Durban Poison, Cookie Fam elevated levels of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, even higher in GSC than in its parents. THC concentrations average between 24 percent and 28 percent, making this one of the most potent strains in existence today. What is more, cannabidiol, or CBD, and cannabinol, or CBN, levels are also exceptionally high, increasing medical potency and effectiveness too.
The dessert-like flavor and signature earthy, floral aroma of GSC is due to its terpenes. This strain tends to express very high levels of beta-caryophyllene, a compound the U.S. National Library of Medicine touts as the dietary cannabinoid. Its tertiary and secondary terpenes include humulene, limonene, linalool, and myrcene, which combine to ensure the delicious taste of this popular strain.
Because Girl Scout Cookies is slightly Indica-dominant, it will express those traits mostly in its effects. The initial Sativa buzz of this strain is euphoric, energetic, sociable, giggly, talkative, focused, busy, creative, and motivated, but as its Indica genes kick in, you start to feel relaxed, calm, content, hungry, drowsy, and even outright sleepy. In very large doses, this strain can knock you out. Use cautiously.
These are delightful-looking buds. At first glance, their sweet pungency can near overwhelm you, certainly tease your appetite, and at closer glance, you will find sticky buds smattered with gorgeous light green buds, fiery orange hairs, and bright purple hues. It pleases the eye just as much as the palate, even resembling its pudding-like flavors in its colorful tones. These are good-looking buds indeed.
Because of its cannabinoid and terpene profiles, Girl Scout Cookies is a favorite among medical patients too. All of these compounds work synergistically to provide anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiemetic, antispasmodic, anticonvulsant, antidepressant, anxiolytic, antipsychotic, and even anticancer properties. It is a powerful and effective treatment for insomnia, and many use it to stimulate appetite too.
