Girl Scout Cookies Feminized (GSC) is 60% indica, 40% sativa, and comes from North California. Its parent plants are the South African Durban Poison, and OG Kush. Although the yields are modest, the buds offer an intense, uplifting high. Girl Scout Cookies Feminized plants grow to around 200 to 250cm, and tend to do well in temperate and continental climates. They produce a sweet and spicy aroma, which is how the strain got its name.
Girl Scout Cookies Feminized cannabis seeds are often called GSC for short. They have a notable genetic pool; OG Kush, and Durban Poison, arguably the most famous strain to emerge from Africa. The plants grow fairly tall (up to 250cm), but can be limited to 100cm when grown indoors.
They produce fairly good yields, but the real attraction is the intensity of the high. Chatty, euphoric and incredibly strong – this isn’t a strain for new users! GSC got its name from its sweet and spicy scent, which is reminiscent of home-cooking.
Growing Girl Scout Cookies Feminized
Girl Scout Cookies Feminized cannabis seeds, sometimes called GSC for short, boast a remarkable parentage - a mix of the legendary Durban Poison, and OG Kush.
It’s a fairly balanced strain (40% sativa, 60% indica) and this version’s feminized, which means fewer male plants to contend with. In turn, that results in a minimised risk of fertilisation, and improved yields.
The flowering phase lasts around 63 to 70 days, which is about average. Thanks to the sativa element, you can expect the plants to shoot up rapidly, and reach around 200 to 250cm when grown outside. If you prefer yours to be shorter, cultivate them indoors instead. This usually limits the growth to around 100cm.
Girl Scout Cookies Feminized takes after OG Kush in appearance, with multiple sturdy branches that grow steeply upwards, rather than out. This is a benefit, as you’ll be able to grow the plants more closely together, which then requires less space.
The colour of this strain is another desirable feature, with some phenotypes displaying light purple on the calyxes and a deeper purple on the leaves. If you’re lucky, you might even get some orange pistils too, and this, combined with the glittering white and gold resin glands, makes for a very attractive plant indeed.
The yields are fairly modest, with each plant producing about 300grams outside, and approximately 300g/m2 indoors. However, what GSC lacks in abundance, it makes up for in the high – take heed, as this is a seriously intense strain. The buds are fat and heavy, and coated in resin.
To get top results, cultivate this strain in a country with a warm, sunny climate. It’ll just about tolerate temperate locations, but thrives best in plenty of sun. Alternatively, it can be grown indoors.
Effect, taste, and smell of Girl Scout Cookies Feminized
Girl Scout Cookies Feminized is a near perfect balance of indica and sativa. This comes through in the high, which is a powerful sense of relaxation, combined with a burst of euphoric energy.
The effects are usually noticed in the head to begin with, before it spreads throughout the body. You might get the giggles after smoking it, and you’ll certainly become more social. The long-lasting high is also good for easing aches and pains, and some say that it also combats nausea and lack of appetite. You have been warned, this is a strain that inspires the munchies!
The smell of the plants is reminiscent of baking; sweet, spicy and warm. In fact, that’s where Girl Scout Cookies Feminized got its name from. There are other notes at play here, though; such as mint, aniseed, sandalwood and citrus. The aroma is subtle, but intensifies as the buds approach harvest-time.
The taste is much the same as the scent, though the flavour of fruit and pine comes through more strongly. Be warned, due to the high THC content (20-25%, sometimes as high as 28%), this isn’t a strain for novice users. Even seasoned smokers should proceed with some caution, in order to avoid a total couch-lock.
