The Girl Scout Cookies strain has become one of the most popular strains in West Coast cannabis culture. So much so, that it’s being cross bred a lot. That typically means that it’s become a highly sought after genetic so everyone wants the name attached in some way. Starting out in the Bay Area of California, this strain was definitely meant to reach stardom. This strain is a harmonious cross between OG Kush and Durban Poison that makes an indica-dominant hybrid.
The strong smell of these buds gives off an earthy aroma that’s sweet and containing floral notes. It’s gone on to win more than one Cannabis Cup award for having noticeably high THC levels. What’s more, it boasts an equally high level of terpenes that amount to several medical benefits, as well as recreational.
This strain has become popular for a lot of reasons. Mainly, it’s beautiful. You’ll notice gorgeous green with underlying purple on the buds with a wonderfully contrasting fiery red color on the hairs. The other reason is that it’s become so popular is the obvious ties to the sweet treats. The Girl Scouts actually put out a cease and desist a few years ago to the state of California banning the use of the name alongside cannabis.
As a result, several recreational brands have made the shift to labeling their Girl Scout Cookies as “GSC.” Hilariously though, the Girl Scouts have shown up in the news on more than one occassion selling their cookies outside cannabis shops. It’s potentially the love of Girl Scout Cookies in cookie form by stoners, that when such a fire strain came along the match was made in heaven.
