Strain Review - Girl Scout Cookies Growing

As the name of the strain suggests, Girl Scout Cookies are a delicious treat that is bound to satisfy the sweet tooth commonly found in marijuana smokers. Variations of this strain are found on shelves in dispensaries all over the state of Colorado.

Girl Scout Cookies, known as GSC, has been steadily gaining popularity all over the United States in the past few years.

The first thing you notice when you crack open a container of GSC is the sweet pungent smell of the flower. The aroma is very earthy with a slight hint of baked cookies and is very similar to OG Kush but without the strong lemon scent. There is a distinct sweet scent to the herb and the strain definitely reminds you of some delicious cookies -- thin mints, perhaps? Before you examine the herb itself your nose is already begging you to try it.

The buds appear entirely frosted with clusters of powdery crystals which promise to pack an intense high. The nugs are very dense at the core with green calyxes sprouting out and wrapping around purple leaves.

Orange and golden hairs are also found sprouting throughout the flower. This strain is noticeably similar in appearance as OG Kush but with slightly less orange. The green, purple and orange color makes the buds appear more attractive and complex.

Inhaling this strain puts you in a very pleasant place while packing quite a punch. It gives you a fairly long-lasting high.

The effects are very strong providing a lasting cerebral head-change as well as full-body relaxation.
