Strain of the Week: Cookies ‘N Crème

Rumor has it that Cookies ‘N Crème is a scrumptious blend of Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) and Starfighter. While all GSC hybrids are tasty, with flavors of pancakes and vanilla, this one takes the cake.

As Cookies and Cream ice cream is bursting with flavors of Oreos and heavy cream, this strain is equally tantalizing. It tastes sweet and nutty, but you’ll taste a hint of a toasty burnt flavor on the exhale. As you expected, its bulbous nuggets are covered in sparkling trichomes, and it has a yellow-green tint. It also breaks apart easy compared to other indica-dominant hybrids. It is sticky, but not as sticky as quality heavy indicas tend to get.

Notable for its sedative effects, Cookies ‘N Creme is best used at night, as it certainly packs a punch straight from the sandman. Consumers report that muscle pain and insomnia are two ailments that just drift away when enjoying this powerful strain. This is not a bud that should be passed up for those looking for the classic couch-lock experience. Indica-dominant fans should take note.

Also known as Cookies and Cream, this selection snagged first place for Best U.S. Hybrid at the High Times 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup. The strain is versatile, meaning that either indica or sativa characteristics can be noticed. But mostly, its indica effects overpower anything else and you’re not going to get much done after smoking.

GSC blends are always strong, and Cookies ‘N Crème is no different. Samples of the strain have tested at 20 percent THC, and a few samples have tested as high as 25 percent THC. The effects also last a long time, up to four or five hours, so you’ll get your money’s worth. If you’re into strains with heavy couch-lock and narcotic effects, then this strain is for you.
