The strain is another unusual one – its parents are a sativa (Durban Poison), and another hybrid (of unknown origins, but most likely indica-based). This bush is moderately difficult to grow, with a low yield which comes after seven to nine weeks of growing. Despite this, it is popular with indoor grow masters due to its small stature, although it does have a recognisable scent. That scent is described as being sweet and earthy, with the colours being a mix of vibrant greens and purples, with threads of orange in the mix.
This strain is very strong, with people turning to it if they need extreme relief from pain and stress. The immediate effects of Girl Scout Cookies is to promote feelings of happiness and relaxation, with other effects including euphoria, hunger, and a general sense of being uplifted. Because of these effects, and because of the balance between indica and sativa which is present in the strain, it is the top medical pick for people with stress, and it is also prescribed for pain and depression relief also. The mix of sativa and indica makes it particularly suited for depression, as people report that while it does help them to relax and feel euphoric, they could also still focus and engage with the world around them. The feeling of hunger which Girl Scout Cookies also brings means that people prescribe it on a regular basis for people who have no appetite, or who can’t eat in general.
