Animal Cookies is the child of the legendary hybrid marijuana strains Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG. This clone-only strain flowers in 9-10 weeks, and grows into dense, frosty green buds tipped with purple. True to its name, Animal Cookies has a sweet, sour aroma with heavy full-body effects that will impress any veteran consumer. This potent medicine might be overkill for mild symptoms, but its ability to obliterate severe pain and insomnia is unprecedented.
Animal Cookies is marked by small to medium-sized popcorn-like buds with a dense bud structure typical of other indicas. Leaves are a yellowish-green; some phenotypes can express subtle purple hues. This purple is brought out when colder temperatures stimulate pigments called anthocyanins — the process is similar to the way foliage changes color in autumn when chlorophyll breaks down in cooler weather. The buds are very sticky and covered in white to cloudy amber trichomes, perhaps lending the leaves their yellowish appearance. Orange hairs — which are actually pistils to collect pollen from male plants — stand out against the colorful flowers. Animal Cookies has a scent that is simultaneously sweet and sour, with a dank, skunky edge. Breaking open the sticky flowers yields some more notes of pepper and pine. Interestingly, this strain is not known for having a grape-like taste; although its pigments bring out purple hues in the right conditions, this does not result in a corresponding change in flavor. When combusted, Animal Cookies have a thick, harsh smoke that often induces coughing. This smoke has a sweet and vaguely spicy taste when exhaled.
Animal Cookies has a high that settles in fairly quickly for a predominantly indica strain. Smokers may not have finished coughing before theyÔÇÖre hit with a weighty and palpable stoney feeling that affects the entire body. Emotional well-being accompanies this relaxation so that users typically feel remarkably comfortable and contented. Without any cerebral intensity, this strain does not confer the kind of rapid-association thoughtfulness that comes with more pure sativa varieties. The extreme relaxation that animal cookies provides can melt into a powerful couchlock if users continue to indulge in its potent bud. These physical effects also make Animal Cookies an effective painkiller with medical application. Those suffering from both mild or more chronic, nerve-based pain report an easing or a total relief of symptoms. This strain’s heaviness also makes it an excellent treatment for users who struggle with insomnia. Mentally, it can also be beneficial in helping treat stress and anxiety, as it renders users happily oblivious in its stoney haze. Side effects include the typical dry eyes and dry mouth, along with some appetite stimulation. More recommended for nighttime than daytime use, Animal Cookies is not usually praised for helping users accomplish work.
Animal Cookies marijuana is descended from the tasty Girl Scout Cookies and the powerfully sedating Fire OG. Animal Cookies is quickly growing popular as a medical strain as some cultivars breed strains with up to 4 percent CBD. With up to 23% THC providing the pain relieving power, Animal Cookies is a versatile strain for medical applications.
