This indica-leaning hybrid sports insanely frosty buds that shine a brilliant green. Lemon Cookies is the perfect name, too, as this cannabis plant’s flowers smell a bit like lemon and honey.
The smoke still contains some the pungency one would expect from an OG, but the sweet citrus is still there. It won the SoCal Cannabis Cup award for 3rd Place under Best Hybrid Concentrate in 2015.v
This strain is recommended for those who need to medicate for physical conditions that involve inflammation. Its terpene profile contributes to its ability to reduce inflammation, and because it won’t induce sluggishness, it’s a good daytime cultivar.
Cottonmouth and red eyes are possible side effects of Lemon Cookies. Over medicating may also produce feelings of anxiety or paranoia, so tread carefully.

Although the origin of Lemon Cookies is unclear, it’s believed to be a cross between Lemon OG and Girl Scout Cookies (particularly the Oakland variant of Cookies). Lab data puts its cannabinoid content between 18-21% THC. It also contains higher than average amounts of the terpene beta-caryophyllene, which keeps this strain from inducing sleepiness but also makes the high more potent on the wired end.
