Cookies and Cream by Exotic Genetix
Cookies and Cream by Exotic Genetix is a balanced hybrid strain that is crossbred between Starfighter and an unknown derivative phenotype of the famously popular Girl Scout Cookies (GSC), created by breeders at Exotic Genetix. It averages a daunting though impressive THC average of up to 26%, and is widely regarded for its delicious, dessert-like flavours. Like its name suggests, this strain undoubtedly a sweet treat as it packs a delicious vanilla flavour profile reminiscent of your favourite childhood dessert: cookies and cream! As a testament to Cookies and Cream’s amazing powerhouse high and tasty flavour profile, this strain carries the title of First Prize victory for Best US Hybrid at the 2014 High Times Denver Cannabis Cup.
The Cookies and Cream high begins mentally. It is one of euphoria as it elevates mood and minimizes stress or mood disorders such as PTSD, depression and anxiety. As the high wears on, the strain then works to put you into an almost dream-like state before settling in on the body and entering users into an ultimate relaxation mode. This state of relaxation can be so deep that although users may feel lazy, the effects of this blissful daze make Cookies and Cream ideal for medical usage, acting as a sort of semi-narcotic. Those seeking to alleviate suffering from physical ailments will find that aches, pains, muscle spasms, and insomnia may find relief from such symptoms with Cookies and Cream. One of the appealing characteristics of this hybrid is that it also has such high potency that it can do so much for you, both mentally and physically, while requiring so little, so you get your bang for your buck. The combination of an elevated mood and body relaxation makes this strain perfect for a Netflix and chill kind of vibe as you lie back and binge watch your favourite TV series with a bowl full of cookies and large glass of milk.
THC Content Level
This strain has an even indica/sativa ratio of 50:50. The content level of Cookies and Cream by Exotic Genetix is a whopping high average of 23%-26%, a measurement that is above the norm. Though, such potency is to be expected as a phenotype of the famous Girl Scout Cookies strain, which itself can average upwards of 28% potency, whereas its other parent, Starfigher, boasts an average of 20% THC. So, not only does Cookies and Cream itself taste great, it packs a powerful punch, like getting hit in the head with a bag of double-stuffed Oreo cookies!
Appearance & Aroma
Cookies and Cream’s name already implies a sweet, delicious treat, and it owns up to its name with its dessert-like scent and taste. Its flavour profile includes hints of sweet vanilla, combined with a toasted and nutty earthiness. Its appearance is just as delectable. While it does not resemble the shape or image of a cookie, its flowers are a nice and fluffy, buds are small to medium in size, and are beautiful shades of dark green with orange and purple pistils that are covered frosty, crystalline trichomes—definitely lookin’ like a snack!
