Sour Cookies is a crossing between two cannabis legends: Girl Scout Cookies and Sour Diesel. Despite its cookies lineage, this strain is not really sweet. The flavors profile reminds more of diesel, hash and earth. Consumers also noted the notes of citrus on the background.

The main rule with Sour Cookies weed is to manage the dosage. While the strain's potency is not extraordinarily high, around 17-22% THC, sometimes it can range up to 28%. Sour Cookies marijuana can satisfy both starters and advanced smokers, but the dosage must be controlled.

The effects of Sour Cookies strain differ depending on the portion consumed. After smoking a bit of it, users describe energetic talkative and very social, creative high. If continue smoking, the cerebral euphoria changes with couch-locked body buzzing effects. The strain is not the right choice for those who are prone to paranoia. However, it is a good helper with mood swings, stress, depression and aches.

This Sativa-dominant hybrid can be cultivated both in and outdoors. The herb is quite stinky and it reaches a medium-high. The flowering time of Sour Cookies plants is around 8-9 weeks.

THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.44 - 0.67% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.19 - 0.76% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.09 - 0.8% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.08 - 0.16% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.3 - 0.86% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

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?
