Behind the Strain: Animal Cookies


A rush of hashy, earthy flavors dressed up in a sweet baked taste and coated with a small, cool touch of mint


Girl Scout Cookie x Fire OG Kush


The last and final installment in the Girl Scout Cookie take over, the Animal Cookie.  Another clone-only strain taking one of the “who know’s which” cuts of the girl scout cookie and crossing it to the “can’t really tell you” cut of OG kush. While the enigma behind what makes up the Girls Scout Cookie, the fortune Cookie, Kookies, Berner’s Forum Cut, Kb Cut Cookies, Pak’s Hayward cut continues to dizzy even the steadiest of minds, the medication speaks for itself.  

How It Grows:

Up, up and away!  I don’t care if you have a t5 half an inch above this plant or Metal Halide HID, get ready to see three to five-inch internodal Veg!!! Like most of the girl scout cookie she is extremely pH sensitive but when kept in range, she takes over a garden with massively sprawling branches stretching real tall. Animal Cookie's deep dark green classic teardrop leaf shape (evident in so many hybrids) lays the foundation for a beasty plant.  She responds extremely well to topping and training and will reward ample veg time and training techniques with several evenly sized rock hard spears that can be deceptively heavy. Loading up the P around weeks two to three beyond what typical OG’s like helps her thrive. It's actually a nice compliment to her distinct lack of need for calcium compared to her OG kush dad.  

Smoke Report/Bag Appeal:

Probably one of the most exceptionally looking specimens of Cannabis, Animal Cookies is a complete show stopper. Bright green calyxes softly fade into dark purple tips each expectorating a bright orange pistil or two.  All this caked under a blanket of trichomes thick enough to stretch the resin heads into thread when you break the blooms apart. The deep acrid scent of only the finest OG kush dominates these flowers but gives way, rather than to the lemon side of the bouquet, to a rubbery, nutty smell completely unique for me to this strain. The flowers, even when properly dried and cured takes some patients to ignite simply because of the volume of resin in the omnipresent glob jewels. Once combusted, a rush of hashy earthy flavors dressed up in a sweet baked taste and coated with just small smooth touch of mint goes to work on your  tasting pleasure centers. The exhale bringing with it the numbing taste of hot asphalt and rubber that twists itself around your mouth into some kind of berry and citrus before lingering dauntingly in the air.  

The Effect:

Clear your schedule, you’ve got militant chillin to do.  Not for the inexperienced patient or part time medicator looking to relieve symptoms and go about their day with any degree of effectiveness. N’no, my friend, plan your week ends around these meds. The look, the flavor, the experience is all so intoxicating it’s hard to believe as quickly as this flower extinguishes any head centered pressure, that it’s a creeper, but indeed it’s full consultation is only revealed several minutes after introduction. A well-deserved nap is in store after Animal Cookies offers up its intensely pain relieving trance-like state. It's really the option to turn to for pain relief and calming sleep after the “go to” strains are not doing the job. With  potency abounding in this one, I don't have to turn to concentrates, so the Animal Cookie is the best of the Girl Scout Cookies family bunch for me.
