Grandmas Sugar Cookies Strain Guide: Let’s get introduced
Grandmas Sugar Cookies Kush is a 50-50 crossover between Indica and Sativa phenotype and it owes its genes mainly to Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) and Black Sugar Berry dynamic duo. As most hybrids on the market, this strain also allowed its makers, Johnson’s Genetics to produce a batch of seeds that produce a fast-growing plant with the best characteristics of both types of cannabis.
Although the THC content is moderate, revolving around 18 percent, this strain provides a powerful relaxing kick that’s typical for Indica dominant hybrids. From the first smoke you take, you'll feel a familiar buzzing high that gets you knocked down while your mind fills up with a carefree feeling of happiness.
Besides, thanks to its GSC lineage, Grandmas Sugar Cookies strain holds a broad palette of flavors and distinct aromas that linger in the room long after you've finished smoking. Most notable to your senses are anise, tart cherries, and pungent earth notes that this weed gets from Black Sugar Berry side of the family. The full extent of taste and smell becomes available after you grind a bud, that's when you'll have a feeling that you have BSB in your hands. However, once you roll it up and smoke it, you'll feel the Girl Scout Cookie high.
Physical characteristics Grandmas Sugar Cookies weed
The plant grows to a medium size, which is a usual characteristic for crossbreed marijuana plants, with thumb-size buds. The colors range from purple to magenta with a notable amount of various shades of green. However, when placed under direct sunlight, flowers show a glossy layer of trichomes that cover the entire surface of each bud, which is a dead giveaway of a potent hybrid with strong psychoactive effects that last for hours.
As the flowers start to dry off, the deeper shades of green become more dominant, and the bud becomes less spongy while retaining its original fullness. The buds are so thick and large, that they usually weigh over a gram in a dry state.
What is the best way to consume Grandmas Sugar Cookies marijuana?
As we stated earlier, this strain provides a relaxing and calming high with a strong psychoactive effect that makes you want to lay down, get some snacks and enjoy your favorite TV show. However, for those of you that are used to stronger types of pot, this is a nice daily high to get you through a stressful day at work.
If you're not too keen on venting your room each time you wish to enjoy this tasty weed, it's not a bad idea to get your hands on some wax extract which is best used with vaporizers. You'll still be able to enjoy the sour cherry and cookie dough taste with each inhalation of the vape but lose the cloud of smoke that lingers on with regular smoking. Also, because there's no combustion, vaporizers produce a higher THC intake which makes for a more potent high.
Finally, if you're not into smoking because of a health issue or just because you don't want to introduce anything other than air into your lungs, you can make homemade pot brownies or gummy bears. It would take a bit longer for the effects to kick in than it would with smoking but the results would not fail you. You'll still feel high as a kite and get an uncontrollable urge to laugh at things that you normally wouldn't find so funny.
