Girl Scout Cookies – The Kind You Love

Last updated on

Girl Scout Cookies is one of the most popular strains on the planet. The Indica dominant hybrid has won several awards at the Cannabis Cup, and it can be found for sale in most legal dispensaries around Canada and America. It is viewed as a supreme strain and an all-time favorite amongst tokers all around the globe.

Just like the Blue Dream strain, another extremely popular strain in North America, Girl Scout Cookies originated from California, but today it can be found in dispensers everywhere.

When medical marijuana was legalized in certain states of America, it seemed like patients were all looking for great tasting strains with large amounts of THC. It was not surprising that Girl Scout Cookies emerged as one of the best selling strains on the market.

First-timers should avoid using this strain because it can reach THC levels of up to twenty-eight percent! The high can last for a very long time, so inexperienced stoners should be very careful when using it.

What Are the Effects?

Because it is a hybrid, users can expect to experience effects from both Sativa and Indica. It can give the user an uplifting feeling, along with feelings of euphoria.

People use the strain to improve creativeness, so it’s not surprising that many use it during the day. Although it is an Indica dominant strain, Girl Scout Cookies has the ability to increase energy levels, so you should avoid using it before going to bed, especially if you suffer from insomnia.

However, just because it gives some people energy, using a lot of the strain can lead to “couch-lock”. If you are planning on being productive after using it, you should consider using a low amount. With high levels of THC, don’t underestimate it, as it packs a powerful punch.

Medical Benefits

Although the Girl scout cookie strain has low amounts of CBD, it does have a lot of medical benefits, which is why it is one of the most popular strains in the medical marijuana industry.

The uplifting effect the strain produces can help lots of people suffering from psychological disorders such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety.

Because there are high amounts of Sativa in GSC, users can benefit from these uplifting feelings, but they can also feel relaxed because of its Indica properties.

Although some people use it to treat insomnia, some users claim that it doesn’t help them sleep at night. It can enhance the production of melatonin, which is the hormone that induces sleep, but not everyone feels it promotes a good night’s sleep.

If this is your first time using cannabis to help you get shut eyes, consider speaking with a trained medical professional or an experienced budtender at your local dispensary for advice.

Those seeking relief from chronic pain should consider using the popular strain. Cancer patients often use GSC cookies, along with people suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS), and polymyositis. Even if you get migraines now and again, GSC might prove to be a helpful solution.

People suffering from chronic conditions might have to take high amounts of the strain if they want to feel some of the benefits. However, you might be reluctant to smoke a lot of GSC joints, so consider purchasing edibles instead.

Growing Girl Scout Cookies

Since the pandemic began, it seems like every stoner out there is growing cannabis. Unfortunately, growing Girl Scout Cookies can prove challenging. Although it does produce beautiful buds, you should consider growing a different strain, especially if you have little to no experience cultivating marijuana.

Although it is possible to grow GSC outdoors, if you don’t have the proper climate, you might run into some issues. To successfully grow the strain, you will want the plant growing in a Mediterranean type of climate. This is why the majority of cannabis growers grow GCS indoors, so they can regulate the climate themselves.

On the other hand, GSC requires very little maintenance. The strain has a reputation of being able to resist pests and mold, and cultivating the plant isn’t that difficult.

You can expect the plant to flower after around ten weeks. If you are planning either an indoor or outdoor grow, make sure that you have plenty of space first. The plant can stretch out, and the branches tend to be strong.


Because Girl Scout Cookies is one of the most popular strains in the legal cannabis market, getting your hands on it is not going to be an issue. Most reputable online and physical dispensaries throughout North America sell the strain, and it can be found in almost every cannabis coffee shop in Holland.

A lot of dispensaries sell edibles laced with GSC because they are aware that many of their clients use it for medical purposes, so don’t hesitate to ask them if they have any in stock.
