Few strains are as popular with both cultivators and consumers as GSC, previously referred to as Girl Scout Cookies. A potent hybrid of OG Kush and Durban Poison, GSC can be found throughout the United States both in its original form and many phenotypes and hybrids.
It’s nearly desired as much for it’s appealing flavor and aroma as it is for its high THC content and euphoric effects. The aroma of GSC is very sweet with an earthy, spice undertone. OG Kush passed along its sweet citrus while both parents share earthy pine flavors. The flavor is distinctly spicy, like cloves and black pepper with malty pine notes, although this may vary on the phenotype.
Depending on the plant, GSC generally contains anywhere from between 17-28% THC. Medical patients often use it for pain relief, nausea, appetite loss and mental relaxation.
GSC is a balanced hybrid and provides euphoric mental energy with a calming physical relaxation. Durban Poison, a pure sativa, gives GSC its heady burst of euphoria and mental energy. The result is a peaceful, relaxed down-body experience coupled with a happy, uplifting mental outlook.
Generally, the appearance of GSC is light green with multi-colored hairs. The strain has won multiple cups due to its potency and desirable flavor.
Popular GSC phenotypes include Platinum Cookies, Monster Cookies and Thin Mint.
