The delicious strain Cookies and Cream gets its name from the sweet vanilla and nutty scents it produces when cultivated and cured properly. Its genetics stem from the infamous Girl Scout Cookies, thus putting it in the spotlight as potent in its effects, appearance, taste, and smell. Such characteristics helped it win the hybrid 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup and its reputation made cannabis connoisseurs seek it out.
The nugs of Cookies and Cream are lighter than their parent strains, being a mossy green with hues of purple and amber pistils. The layer of trichomes further lightens its appearance, and the buds are often dense and shaped like spades.
THC levels have been known to reach the mid and high 20’s, and users say over-indulging can lead to a rise in anxiety.
However, when used moderately, Cookies and Cream has been reported to offer consumers relief from stress and anxiety, aches and pains, headaches, and in some instances, depression. Consumers say it can both relax the body while increasing cerebral activity due to its nature as a hybrid, and often creativity can arise. They inform us that, it does have the ability to cause lethargy so taking this strain in the evening or at night is recommended over trying it during the day.
