GSC or Girl Scout Cookie is one of THE most popular strains in the US, and growers have created strains like Thin Mint and Platinum Cookie (keeping in line with the theme) off the back of GSC’s popularity and fabled buds. The grow period is quick and the average yield per plant is anywhere between 25 and 30 grams, so expect to find this strain housed in dispensaries across the country. Because it’s won numerous Cannabis Cup awards, expect quality, reliability, and a high you can count on sticking around. Effects are reported to begin within 10 minutes, with mild tingling, laughing, and smiling.
Medical patients favor GSC for its pain relieving capabilities, from moderate to severe, and because it often helps with nausea and loss of appetite. Cancer patients going through chemo or suffering from no appetite may try Girl Scout Cookies and be amazed at how it might help. Many users report intense food cravings, or the “munchies”, and people with eating disorders often find relief using GSC to gain an appetite and actually enjoy food.
The taste profile is sweet, with some reports of chocolate, coffee, or vanilla, and often matched in flavor. Others have smelled and tasted mango, cookie batter, or citrus. The nuggets are small, dense, and look a little like OG Kush–orange hairs, long leaves. No surprise there, as GSC comes from a blend of OGK and the sativa strain Durban Poison. Regardless of which flavors you encounter, GSC is definitely a hybrid treat you’ll need to hit up a dispensary to try (please no harassing any little girls in Girl Scout uniform–they won’t have these cookies).
Feelings of stress disappear and are replaced with euphoria, a gentle sleepiness, and a pleasant full-body buzz in the muscles that creeps in and lasts long. Hardly any reports of paranoia or anxiety with this strain, and it’s enjoyed both indoors on the couch or outdoors in the sunshine. Not as great for multi-tasking stoners, Girl Scout Cookie provides head highs with a boost in spirits, so plan for a goofy adventure or just chilling out with some friends. Expect the giggles, feelings of happiness, and relief from anxiety, stress, and potentially migraines for those that suffer.
