There’s something about fresh cookies that makes them irresistible! It's not uncommon to find yourself uncontrollably eating and grabbing cookie after cookie until you realize you ate 10 or more. Now, imagine that same sensation but combined with the greatness of cannabis: similar flavor, the same satisfaction.
Cookies and Cream is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% Indica/50% Sativa) that certainly lives up to its name since it tastes like sweet vanilla and nutty earth topped with creamy butter. Moreover, the cherry on top of this already amazing is its insanely powerful 26% average THC level.
The Cookies and Cream strain has a flavor that’s much like your favorite cookie, with hints of chocolate and nuts as well as sweet vanilla and cream. The aroma is very much the same but with a slightly pungent twist.
Also, this bud has fluffy popcorn-shaped dark green nugs with dark purple undertones. This strain blooms showing bright green buds fully covered in a white layer of trichomes and orange hairs contrasting nicely with the vivid-looking flower.
There are three main terpenes inside the potent Cookies and Cream strain, responsible for some of the medical properties, aromas, and aesthetics aspects it is famous for. First, Myrcene provides the peppery, spicy balsam fragrance in this strain and has therapeutic calming effects. Caryophyllene delivers a spicy, funky warmth to the nose, similar to cinnamon and cloves, best for stress relieving and reducing anxiety. Last, Humulene gives subtle earthy, woody, and spicy notes to this strain and is an effective anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and appetite suppressant.
The onset is said to start with an uplifting mental high. As the effect becomes stronger, the sense of concentration sharpens, and the mood shifts to one of euphoria. The mental joy grows deeper as you feel happier and more energized, but not to the point of being psychedelic.
The physical body high follows, which counteracts the emotional high. The sedative properties of the Indica side relax your body without making you feel drowsy or putting you in a coma. The Cookies and Cream strain has a sweet, long-lasting high ideal for treating conditions like chronic stress or anxiety, nausea, insomnia, muscle spasms, and depression.
However, you should be aware that it can cause common cannabis side effects such as dry eyes and cottonmouth, which are minor compared to the conditions and symptoms that this variety can relieve.
Cookies and Cream's origins come from two widely known strains. One of them is the Starfighter, which has a loyal crowd of followers due to its uplifting qualities. The other is an unidentified phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies, a strain noted for its extraordinary mental high.
The breeder produced a balanced hybrid by combining these two strains, which smells and tastes great and has a powerful kick that settles into a balanced high. Moreover, it has become one of the most successful crosses due to these features among users and growers alike.
Starfighter is a slightly indica predominant hybrid strain (60/40 ratio) created by crossing the legendary Alien Tahoe OG and Lemon Alien Dawg strains. Starfighter is one all-around great bud, with a powerful aromatic lemony fragrance and good cerebral effects from a high THC level of 20%.
Starfighter has a delicately sweet earthy lavender start that transitions to a harsh pungent lemony pine aftertaste on exhale that can last for hours after only one toke.
Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) is a slightly indica-dominant hybrid strain born after crossing the popular OG Kush and Durban Poison strains. This hugely successful strain is a fan favorite among consumers everywhere thanks to its delectable taste, which is reminiscent of a freshly baked Kush cookie, and a range of sweet cerebral and physical effects.
Your body will be hit with a buzzing feeling as your mind is lifted, leaving you fully calm and slightly couch-locked with a building sense of hunger due to the 24% THC average.
