Girl Scout Cookies strain is a modern marvel that has become a cultural phenomenon, sending shockwaves throughout California's cannabis community. There hasn't been a new cannabis genotype with so much hype surrounding it for years - really not since the Granddaddy Purple exploded onto the scene in 2007.
Much of Girl Scout Cookies' Origins Remain a Mystery
Much of the history behind Girl Scout Cookies is kept secret by its proprietors. It's generally accepted that GSC originated as a hybrid strain, combining OG Kush with a cross of Durban Poison and a strain called F1. It was bred out of Florida in the mid-90′s and then brought to the world in 2010 by the same group responsible for Cherry Pie - The Cookie Family. Note, while F1 is often a term used in genetics to describe the first filial generation of different parent types, it is merely a strain name in the case of GSC's lineage.
Contrary to popular belief, there's no actual direct genealogical relationship between Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, nor is there any Grand Daddy Purple in GSC's lineage. Girl Scout Cookies' rise to popularity hasn't gone without controversy; the insatiable demand for the strain has given rise to plenty of impostors and generic spinoffs. Unfortunately, a lot of the Girl Scout Cookies currently being distributed by dispensaries in the Bay Area (or anywhere else) is not in fact genuine GSC (although a lot of the fakes are impressive in their own right).
Multiple Girl Scout Cookie Phenos In Circulation
Girl Scout Cookies hasn't become a sensation for no reason; its unique exotic redolence and 'profoundly intense body-high' set it apart from the rest. There are a few different phenos of Girl Scout Cookies currently circulating, some flowers carrying an overwhelming OG disposition while others, like the original 'yellow pheno', express more 'exotic' Durban oriented characteristics.
Girl Scout Cookie Signature Flavor is Unmistakeable
Girl Scout Cookies' signature flavor features strong notes of sweet pastries, wood varnish, diesel fuel, and lemon pinesol. It actually packs more of an 'authentic' OG flavor than many of the popular OG phenos currently circulating. The vapor is skunky and expansive on the inhale, lip-smacking varnish and pastries on the exhale.
Regularly testing at over 20% THC / .5% CBD, Girl Scout Cookies is a therapeutic powerhouse capable of relieving chronic pain, neuropathy, muscle spasms, and PTSD. Overall, GSC stands out as one of the most brilliant and exotic varieties to pop up over the last few years - a true masterpiece!
