Animal Mints strain is a hybrid that combines the effects of Indica and Sativa giving you a well-rounded and perfectly balanced trip. This strain produces that weird effect that is relaxing and energizing all at once, a kind of trip that comes in waves, and each of those waves is different. It’s hard to really describe the kind of trip you are going to get, what I know for sure is that this is going to be a great experience you would cherish, and you would also want to smoke on those Animal Mints again. It truly is a marvelous weed, so let’s talk about it in more detail.

What’s The History Of The Animal Mints?

Animal Mint strain was first bred by the cultivars from the Seed Junky Genetics in California with an intent to create a hybrid that balances the effects and qualities of Indica and Sativa perfectly producing this long-lasting and diverse trip that bounces from fully sedative to more or less energizing. To achieve this effect, Seed Junkies took Animal Cookies and Girl Scout Cookies, mixed them together, and the rest is history. These guys came up with the Animal Mints cannabis strain, a hybrid to end all hybrids. Being fully transparent in this Animal mints strain review, I cannot say they did reach this perfect balance between Indica and Sativa. Most smokers report a clear Indica dominance and mostly relaxing effect. Still, there is this odd and pleasant jumping feeling of uplift every now and then. So, they came really close to creating the ultimate hybrid anyway.

What Are Possible Effects?

The effects of Animal Mints marijuana strain are diverse and even unpredictable. Most smokers report a relaxing effect, a strong couch-lock, lightness in the head, good mood, good appetite, and some sporadic bursts of energy. So, you can expect a trip of high potency and mixed-effects:

  • Happiness
  • Energy bursts
  • Relaxation
  • Creativeness
  • Good Appetite

Basically, what you are going to feel is a boost of positive emotions, a strong desire to stay where you are and be comfortable in that place, bursts of laughter, bright ideas, and creativity bursts. That weed is perfect for a chill session with some of your good friends – grab some snacks, something to drink, and find some good music or movies to relax to.

Are Animal Mints Good For Medical Use?

Well, not exactly. Considering a kind of chaotic nature of this weed, its unpredictable range of effects, and the fact that it produces such a wide array of effects upon your mind and your body, it is best not to use this weed if your mental condition is not so stable. What this weed is great for is killing the pain. This weed has a strong relaxing effect upon your body, so it is great for relieving physical aches and pains. With its rather high THC content of around 20%, it really is a potent natural painkiller, so you might want to give it a shot after you consult with your doctor.

What Are The Reasons To Smoke Animal Mints?

Everyone has their reasons to smoke weed. The Animal strain is a kind of weed people smoke of sheer curiosity — it is weird, unusual, and really fun. I’d say this weed is not your everyday weed, this is the weed you’d smoke occasionally with friends when you all want something extra. Well, this right here is just an opinion, and it is totally normal that you’d have your own. So, I would totally recommend you to try this weed and find out whether it is your thing.


The looks of that plant say it all, it is of medium height, medium width, and it’s green. Nothing too crazy about its outlook. The buds can come in different sizes too: you can see some average size buds and some giant monster buds that can smoke up your entire squad. The plant looks good, nothing too crazy, just a pretty three.

Smell and aroma

Smell and aroma are where this Animal cake strain shines real bright. As the name suggests, it smells of mint, and you can sense that smell once you open that jar. This refreshing minty aroma mixes well with this classic herbal smell that is common for the majority of weed strains out there. This truly is a remarkable smell, so you’ve got to try it.


The flavor always depends on your smoking device. Use a big bong with some ice and you’ll get this fresh and cool taste of that mint bud, almost like smoking a good minеy cigarette. If you use pipe, I am sorry to say that, but you’ve got to prepare for this bitter and really irritating smoke that will most likely make you cough.

Is Animal Mints Popular?

Well, you cannot say it’s exactly popular. As I said earlier, this is not a kind of weed you’d want to smoke on a daily basis, it’s too weird and too peculiar to smoke it as your everyday weed. That is why the animal mints marijuana strain rating is not too high. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good weed, it definitely is one of the most peculiar strains out there, but maybe this is exactly the reason why it is not too popular — it’s just too strange for the average smoker. Though, I would totally recommend you try it because it might just be that life-changing experience you’ve been looking for.

How Do I Grow Animal Mints?

To grow Animal Mints, you’ll need a garden, a greenhouse, or a hydroponics station. The latter option is the easiest, so if you have no garden and are full of passion for growing your weed at home, get yourself a mid-sized station and some seeds. Once you are set, plant your weed, throw in some fertilizers and stay patient. This strain’s flowering time is somewhere around 10 weeks, so you’ll have to wait for quite a while. Keep an eye on your plant; though it is resilient to diseases, you’d still want to make sure it grows strong and healthy.

Is It Useful for Cooking?

Well, I don’t think so. You see, being entirely honest with you, I would not recommend you to use that strain for cooking your edibles. As I said, the effects of this weed are kinda chaotic and hard to predict, and edibles in their turn, make everything even more complicated. Edibles change the way your body processes the cannabinoids, so the effects become even harder to predict. Also, the effect of the edibles lasts for much longer, and it is easy to overdo it with edibles and end up getting a bad trip. If you are used to the effects of this weed, you may, of course, try edibles, but that’s not what I would recommend.

What Are The Similar Strains?

One of the related and similar strains is Blue Power. This is a weed that is directly related to the Animal Mints lineage, so it is not surprising that they have some similar features. The main similarity is the smell. Blue Power has a more defined calming effect, though it might also come in waves along with bursts of energy.

What Do We Have?

We have a truly peculiar weed that gives you that weird trip you cannot even describe to anyone. The Animal Mints is a must-have for any cannabis enthusiast, that’s for sure, and if you want to smoke something you did not try before — this is your choice. This strain is something else, an amazing hybrid that takes the notion of balance to a whole another level. Is the world ready for the weed that combines the features of Indica and Sativa? Well, I’m not sure, but you should definitely try this stuff.
