    Girl Scout Cookies: 5 things you need to know about this cannabis strain Back to video

    Ask Californian rapper, Berner, and he’d probably say he had no problem selling Girl Scout Cookies (GSC)—the cannabis strain, that is—over the years. Berner ran a cannabis club from age 18 to 25, and is now associated with the “Cookie Family” of marijuana geneticists, who produce strains common in California, such as Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet.

    If writing odes to cookies wasn’t enough, he also runs a clothing and lifestyle store in San Francisco called Cookies, which sells everything from hoodies to odour-proof backpacks.

    When it comes to the cannabis strain, though, it’s as exciting and unexpected as a girl scout showing up at the door. This strain is as bold as it is basic, and will easily twist your rubber arm to buy more.

    First. The stain has a Cali Connection

    Like that youth at your door, though, it is not known precisely where Girl Scout Cookies came from. The good news is the stain has already infiltrated the Canadian legal market and interested buyrs are likely to come into contact with the Cali Connection cut, sometimes referred to as the “thin mint” phenotype.

    Because GSC is so tricky to grow at scale, licensed producers will use the Cali Connection phenotype that promises a “larger-yielding Girl Scout Cookie, thicker stem, no more little tiny yields,” notes an article on Grow Diaries.

    Second. These scouts have indica roots

    Girl Scout Cookies is a mostly indica variety, available as a clone-only strain that requires as long as 70 days of flowering time and can be grown either indoors or outdoors.

    The strain is considered a hybrid of indica and sativa and its reviews are all over the map. As a flowering plant, GSC is not a big yielder, but the effects of the phytocannabinoids, and the reliability of the genetics, are enough to keep people coming back for seconds. Growing it at home? Expect a flowering cycle of aroundnine to 10 weeks.

    Third. These cookies have some interesting ingredients

    For some cannabis enthusiasts, Girl Scout Cookies is the real San Francisco Treat. Many people believe the strain is the lovechild of Cherry Pie and Durban Poison, meaning it would have some Grandaddy Purple in its lineage. However, the strain is actually a cross between OG Kush and a cut of Durban Poison called F1.

    Don’t mess with these girl scout cookies. This strain packs a powerful THC punch. Read more before you indulge.
