Even though the name says “Cookie”, the taste of this strain is actually a whole lot more like candy floss. It’s light and sweet but has notes of mint, spice and chocolate to give it some balance.
The aroma actually has more body than you might expect from that tasty description. It is sweet but it’s also very earthy and some people might find it reminds them of OG Kush.
With over 20% THC and minimal CBD, Girl Scout Cookies is very definitely a “head” strain, in fact it’s a popular choice for tension headaches, anxiety, stress, and depression.
Girl Scout Cookies leaves users clear enough to focus for standard, everyday, tasks, although, as always, apply a bit of common sense, here, for example avoid driving when under the influence of marijuana.
Although Girl Scout Cookie does deliver a clear, fresh, euphoric high, it tends to be a fairly relaxed one, which means that this strain is a decent choice if you mainly want powerful and fast-acting pain relief which will also act as a cure for the occasional bout of insomnia (particularly if it is pain-related), but if you are actually looking for an insomnia strain then you’d probably be better with a variety which has more CBD.
As an autoflowering strain, Girl Scout Cookies is one of the most forgiving and therefore beginner-friendly strains out there.
Girl Scout Cookies generally maxes out at a metre or so when left to its own devices and if you’re prepared to get “hands on” with plant training, you can keep it even lower. This means that Girl Scout Cookies is potentially a feasible choice for outdoor growing, or on a balcony, with a grow flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks.
You also need to bear in mind that even autoflowering strains do need a certain level of care and maintenance with regard to watering, food and ventilation. Get this right and you can expect to be rewarded with a harvest of 500-650 gr/m2 of delicious weed.

Tips for Growing GSC Cannabis
Strain Overview: The famous Girl Scout Cookie hybrid was created by crossing OG Kush and Durbon Poison. Originally bred by the Cookie Fam in the Bay Area, the genetics have since reached markets worldwide. Consistently exhibiting high THC levels, GSC offers a high that is sedative and hard-hitting.
Grow Techniques: Its indica-dominant traits make it a prime candidate for SOG (sea of green) indoors in either a soil or hydro setup. By training the plants, you can easily maximize your grow space to its full potential. Keep the lower canopy pruned and have consistent airflow through the canopy to make sure you prevent powdery mildew from attacking your buds.
Yield: Moderate. Train this strain to expose bud sites to sunlight while pruning everything else away to ensure the plant’s energy is focused on the buds that matter most.
Climate: GSC will tolerate temperature fluctuations better than most strains, but prefers a mild and drier climate. Ideal temperature ranges between 68*F at night and 80 *F day.
Indoor/Outdoor: GSC will produce the best yields indoors or in greenhouses where training techniques can be maximized.
Feeding: Generally speaking, OG genetics will always want more calcium and magnesium nutrients. Pay attention to growth and signs of deficiencies.
