A Cannabis Cup Winner, Girl Scout Cookies ( GSC ) is a legendary strain that was formulated from two of the most famous strains in the world, OG Kush and Durban Poison.
OG Kush is probably the most famous indica around that has been featured in many songs, movies and magazines and positioned itself as a true medical marijuana strain. Originally sourced decades ago and stabilized along the west coast of the United States, OG Kush has been a favoured strain among many growers. It was thought that the Kush variety of cannabis originally came from central Asia and sourced from the Hindu Kush mountains that border Afghanistan and Pakistan. This Indica is well known for its hard-hitting effects and sweet aromas.
Durban Poison, on the other hand, is well-known in the cannabis industry as a pure landrace sativa with an energetic high. It was brought back to the United States from its original source in South Africa, found near the port of Durban. Durban Poison is a well-known strain in South Africa and commonly referred to as DP.
An underground breeding collective known as the Cookie Family saw the opportunity and potential in these two strains and decided to crossbreed the two strains and see the outcome. The could not have imagined what the were going to create in those early days of development. GSC measures between a whopping 25% and 28% THC and contains other cannabinoids such as CBN and CBD.
The sweet aroma of the harvested buds will undoubtedly get your taste buds going. The fiery orange pistils and bright purple leaves make it just as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. GSC has incredibly powerful effects and can leave you couch-locked for hours if you not too careful. It will also induce and stimulate your appetite, so consider having some sweet munchies at hand.
The Cookie Family collective suggests GSC is grown as a Sea-of-Green ( SOG), in either a soil or hydroponic setup. The flowering time of GSC is about 10 weeks and by then you will have an average yield with tight dense buds that waft of sweet aroma.
Girl Scout Cookies got its start in the San Francisco area and there is said to be a “platinum” version of GSC. This platinum version is said to be a cross of OG Kush, Durban Poison and Cherry Kush. The feminized version of GSC that was created by the well-known breeders Cali Connection is what all the west coast rappers brag about and many Californian growers raced to get their hands on this genetic.
GSC is a popular medical marijuana strain and can be used to treat mental disorders such as PTSD, depression and very good for pain management. Many musicians have written lyrics while being stoned from GSC and this has added to its fame and fortune as a must have cannabis strain.
