Girl Scout Cookies were named both sarcastically and practically.  It is called Girl Scout Cookies because it has a sweet taste like ginger cookies, with lemon, spice, and floral notes.  But the name is sarcastic because its far from a cute and innocent gift from the girl scouts.  It is a seriously strong Indica that will give a boost of mental euphoria and creativity, and a wave of bodily warmth, pleasure, and relaxation.

Girl Scout cookies mix Indica and Sativa components pretty evenly.  Therefore, it gives you the option of socializing, doing creative work, or just relaxing after a stressful day.  Careful though, after a strong dose, you may not be able to do much technical work, and coordination can be impaired.  So, it’s best to use to unwind after the day’s work to reduce your stress and give you a more agreeable countenance.

The high is said to start in the head, giving the familiar halo sensation.  It then spreads through the body like a friendly tickle, tackling little stress-related muscular aches and pains, and spreading warmth and relaxation throughout the body.  You may also get the giggles, especially if enjoyed in the company of friends and family.  Girl Scout Cookies may stimulate appetite as well, giving you the munchies, so it may be good to enjoy before a large dinner with loved ones.  You will be able to eat your fill.

Girl Scout Cookies have a good side effect profile.  The most common side effect is the anticholinergic effect of dry mouth.  It can also cause dry eyes.  Less common side effects include anxiety and paranoia, especially if you have toked too much too fast.  Small hits are best as this is one of the most powerful strains.

I found Girl Scout Cookies strain excellent for depression and a lack of appetite. This pot has increased the quality of my life in a big way because it improved my mood and helped to socialize. This is a hybrid, so it can relieve both physical and mental anguish associated with my condition. Also, the munchies I have when smoking Girl Scout Cookies are more prominent than with any other strain.

by Mary on Girl Scout Cookies Marijuana Strain

Awesome anytime pot, sweet tasting and smelling. It’s not the most potent strain I’ve smoked but it does the job pretty well. Girl Scout Cookies may be the best balance of sativa and indica because it gives enough high but not too much so you cannot move at all. Truly affects the mood and the body if you don’t go lightly… I tend to stay away from couch-potato makers because I have a lot of daily tasks I have to run so this one is perfect for me.

by Linda on Girl Scout Cookies Marijuana Strain

I’ve been experiencing chronic back pain for several years now and I’ve tried so many medications. They worked just fine, but later some of them made me feel kinda dizzy, so I had to switch to something different. Then, someone recommended me to buy Girl Scout Cookies marijuana, and it was the best advice I’ve received recently. Just a couple of minutes with this pot and my pain is gone. I’m so glad I discovered this. Now I can work around the house again!

by Jane on Girl Scout Cookies Marijuana Strain

Oh, the legendary cookies… You smoke them, don’t feel anything right away, enjoy the super sweet taste, and then they sneak up on you and get you perfectly high! My chronic pain disappears immediately and I feel great again. I generally don’t trust trends and all that popular stuff, but Girl Scout Cookies strain is definitely the best one I’ve ever tasted. Highly recommended!

by Jose on Girl Scout Cookies Marijuana Strain

Yummy! Earthly and sweet aroma with a punch! I’m a regular medicinal user and I absolutely love this hybrid stuff for its ability to keep me relaxed and euphoric. Although the price for Girl Scout Cookies at my dispensary is kinda high, it’s definitely worth every penny. Why? Because it doesn’t lock me to the couch, smells super good, and doesn’t make me anxious or paranoid at all! That’s why it’s perfect for me to battle my panic attacks and still do something throughout the day.

by Timothy on Girl Scout Cookies Marijuana Strain

In my experience, it was one of the best happy euphoric strains ever. It’s pretty potent, too! I know that they recommend to smoke Girl Scout cookies cannabis in the evening, but my migraines often had me using it in the morning and afternoon. I felt a deep body high and totally forgot about the migraines! Be careful if you’re a beginner, though: the effects are strong and intense. And enjoyable!!
