Sour Cookies Strain Review - Sweet and Sour Cookies Flavor, True to Its Name

Main Terpenes

Sour Cookies contain the three primary terpenes that give marijuana its flavor. It is the limonene that gives the nutty flavor to cannabis. Caryophyllene is responsible for the classic diesel taste. And carene allows the consumer to feel the sweet taste of pine. Besides, marijuana contains a large number of terpenes, such as:

  • Pinene
  • Myrcene
  • Camphene
  • Humulene
  • Linalool
  • Phellandrene

Main Info about Sour Cookies Strain

The percentage of THC in the Sour Cookies weed strain fluctuates a lot. The minor indicators make up 15-17% of the content. And the highest reaches 20-23% of the content. That is why users should be cautious and not play with the dosage. The high progresses rather slowly, but you can notice this by tingling solid sensations in the body. The buzz lasts until you feel an absolute explosion of happiness and relaxation. One of the downsides of marijuana is that this euphoria robs you of any opportunity to focus on anything.

Therefore, prepare for the fact that you will be deprived of the chance to do at least some household chores. Despite the Sativa predominance, the Indica takes over towards the end of the high. You are very slowly sinking into a half-asleep state. The body relaxes so profoundly that you are imperceptibly chained to the sofa. Some users, however, were not very happy with the process. They experienced side effects such as:

  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Dry eyes
  • Paranoia

Common Usage

This type of high, however, helps users alleviate some mental illnesses. In addition to the analgesic effects, Sour Cookies can relieve inflammation. What's more, weed can relieve conditions such as:

One of the vaporizer effects I have noticed here is a bit of pressure behind my eyes. Since Im sensitive to headaches, I didnt appreciate this much. But it does taste and smell good. I guess that makes up for it?
