Cookies & Cream’s History, Appearances & Terpenes
BestBudz presents you Cookies & Cream (50% Indica/50% Sativa), this an evenly balanced hybrid created through crossing Starfighter x Unknown Girl Scout Cookies phenotype. Cookies & Cream was originally grown by Exotic Genetix, a worryingly scientific name for such a down to earth, homeopathic company. Cookies & Cream has a very mixed genetic history, with its roots lying in the infamous Girl Scout Cookies. This tasty bud took 1st Place for Best Hybrid in the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup for its insanely delicious flavor and powerhouse hybrid effects.
Cookies & Cream buds small to medium-sized and do not typically adhere in large, chunky clusters. When properly cured, the flowers appear medium to dark green, and yellow pistils are threaded in and out of the densely-packed leaves. Icy white trichomes dot the flowers, making buds only slightly sticky and still easy to break apart.
Cookies & Cream is, unsurprisingly, famed for its taste and smell. With extremely sweet notes on both the tongue and the nose, Cookies and Cream is eerily reminiscent of the selfsame ice cream flavor that it takes its name from. The vanilla flavor is somewhat nuanced, rather than the bold faced. This is powerful vanilla bean you would get in some ice creams – it is far closer to the vanilla gained from oak casks in fine whiskey, if you can believe it. It has a fairly traditional appearance in nug form, with a fine film of cannabis kief that lines the sides. The kief has a strangely powerful smell, inviting you in to enjoy the whole experience.
Like many other strains in the wider Cookies family, Cookies & Cream promises a generally happy, euphoric and overall gleeful high. Due to its hybrid nature, it is an excellent choice at not making you too couch locked to enjoy a pleasant, cerebral experience.
True to form, Cookies and Cream provides very similar medicinal effects as it does relaxation effects – it is calming.
By far the most frequently cited usage of Cookies and Cream is its ability to help tackle stress. It can help reduce overall stress, both chronic and incidental, as well as just generally making you feel a bit better about yourself. It is also used to help treat depression, as well as pain, though this is as much to do with its THC content and the effect it has on the endocannabinoid system.
BestBudz advises our customers to consult with their medical professionals for cannabis consumption.
