All About Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies Cannabis Strain

Thin Mint GSC strain can trace their unique origin story back to San Francisco and to a charismatic family of cannabis growers only known as the Cookie Family. The Cookie Family is committed to growing plants using the most organic methods in order to better the world. The family created the Thin Mint strain by first crossing an F1 strain of the GSC variety with the Durban Poison strain. The resulting hybrid was then crossed with another hybrid, OG Kush.

Typical Taste and Smell

The Thin Mint GSC strain is known for its sweet minty smell and cookie aroma, thanks to its concentration of the compounds humulene, alpha-pinene, myrcene, and caryophyllene. The combination of both can boost any appetite. Its aroma becomes chocolate-like when rolled up and smoked like a blunt, another reason to love it.

If you’ve always liked strains of a citrusy flavor, then you will love Thin Mints. And yet citrus is only one of its many flavors; the strain also has traces of peppery and hoppy influences. A quick inhalation will reveal that the peppery flavor is the strongest. On consumption, the mixture of flavors creates a lasting tingling feeling in the mouth.

Growing Information

Despite its strict growing requirements and its medium yield, growers like the Thin Mint strain because they are popular among users who’ve tried it.

Growing your own Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies strain is no major trouble. Growers are required to follow a few specific rules during the process, but everything else about the process is easy. You can start by getting seeds from a trusted seller. You can plant either indoors or outdoors. Give your plants the extra boost with some compost, and make sure the temperature outdoors is warm enough.

The plant flowers within 8 to 10 weeks of planting and can be harvested soon after. The plant itself is a low-yielder, so you can only expect medium yield whether you grow it outdoors or indoors. Each square meter planted can yield about 10-11 ounces of usable bud material when grown indoors, or 13 ounces when grown outdoors.

Alternatively, you can follow the growth strategy used by the Cookie Family. They use organic fertilizers and supplement indoor light with high-pressure sodium light bulbs over the growing plants. The Family also employs compost teas because the Thin Mint GSC strain, like all Girl Scout Cookie strains, requires higher nutrients to flourish.
