Shortly after my dad was diagnosed with arthritis, he started taking pot for the growing pains. Turns out even i can use it for muscle pulls and joint pains too. It works like a miracle. The pain almost goes away in minutes and the body feels so relaxed and free i could sleep for hours.

I cannot say that Girl Scout Cookies is not an ASTOUNDING strain. what i can say though is that try pacing yourself according to your tolerance. I once took too many puffs from my bong and ende dup with a blithering headache the say after.

Retrospectively, I once hated indica strains even when they were hybrids. This is because they have these sedative effect when the weed has worn off. Sometimes i WELCOME the sedative effects with open arms and other times I don't want them. This one has a nice balance, not too sedating and not too energizing.

You can grow it indoors and outside and it’s of medium difficulty to grow. The easier way is to grow it inside and set up a hydroponic system to keep the plant happy and also water it regularly while adding fertilizer from time to time.
