No weed hybrid is created equal, and with Indica dominant ones, like Viper Cookies, it’s even more so for a few reasons: first, it’s a highly, HIGHLY powerful strain which THC is way beyond average, second – this is a very characteristic breed that is not as popular as others Indica-leaning ones you can find on the market these days. So, if you want this year to get especially high and stoned in a good way, this is the right herb to search for. But let’s not twaddle and get down to some numbers and reviews.


We’ve mentioned that this is a very powerful plant and to show it in numbers it will be 20% of THC and 0.5 % of CBD. In case you’re a hardcore, Snoop-like stoner, you already said “Holy cow” to yourself but if you’re somewhere on the entry-level of getting the quality type of high, then we’d say…well, holy cow! The thing is that the THC level of the Viper Cookies strain on average (!) is 20%, whereas other Indica-dominant phenotypes have a maximum of 21%. This is closely connected with the Indica-Sativa ratio that this plant has.

Indica/Sativa Ratio

The Viper Cookies Weed Strain is a rare kind of 75% of Indica and 25% of Sativa parents. With that in mind, you need to understand that it has more of a hit-and-run kind of high, inherent to the Indica family rather than something relaxing, chill, and mellow. This is too powerful if you’re looking for something dreamy and is just the right thing if you go for something that strikes you hard at the beginning and keeps the energy pouring out of you until it stops working. At this point, you might be curious why something like that appeared at all in the hybrid form. Well, the next paragraph is just about it.

History Of Viper Cookies

The “once upon a time” of this breed started at the pot company named Moxie 710 when they decided to cross Viper City and Girl Scout Cookies (other sources say it was Forum Cookies). Now, this is where the funny part began as having some original Sativa like Chemdawq and Durban Poison as parents and family for GSC, alongside with potent OG Kush and Lemon Skunk as the Viper City predecessors, they’ve got mixed into one strain that has the qualities from each.


This is the description of the lineage that the strain has. It seems like Viper Cookies is a royal child and after you see its family, you’ll get why we described it like that. Yes, royal families of the world, we challenged you!

Negative Effects Of Viper Cookies

Most of the negative effects that the people experience because of the ganja smoking or weed edibles consumption is because they either have a very low tolerance to the chemicals (especially THC and CBD) or they overdo it. But this is a thing about overdoing Viper Cookies: you’ll be very tired and asleep and in case you’d like to fight against those states, you’ll feel the same way for a week. Another negative effect of smoking has to do with the loss of memory that many people have experienced as a side effect. It is a poor choice for the people:

  • suffered from substance addiction,
  • are prone to paranoid outbreaks,
  • diagnosed with PTSD,
  • have suicidal behavior,
  • prone to hallucinations.

What Makes Viper Cookies So Attractive?

There are a lot of things that make particular strains very appealing, like looks, smell, an unusual breed or famous parents/grandparents. Let’s see what might be interesting for you if you go for buying this one.


As anti-advertising as it may sounds, the look of this plant is literally nothing special: no extra silver sheen of SS Haze, or some purple sprinkling of the Sunset Sherbet – marijuana strain Viper Cookies is just a guy/girl next door upon the opening of which you can feel like Alice in the Viperland. Its flowers have a typical faded green color with orange petals, and it makes it distinguished only by the way it smells and the way it works but having smoked once, this might be your trusted bud(dy).

Smell and aroma

You know about the family mix we’ve told you about. This is exactly the mix you’ll encounter when you light the joint or bong. Viper Cookies smells like fuel, and citrus, and candy, and mud, and berries, and hash all well-balanced into one plant. When burned, it has a thick, full-body aroma that follows with a dry aftertaste.


Its flavor is spicy and herbal and you can taste it for a bit after smoking. With edibles, the flavor fades away, especially if you bake it.


This plant will take you to the destination of your cerebral bus within minutes, and it will feel like a car crash where everybody remains alive and suddenly realizes that happiness is the only way to live the rest of life. Chances are, you’ll have a lot of things that you might tell the other folks in the car, which means that you’ll become very chatty and communicative, even if this is not the word your best friend would describe you with.

Growing Tips

This breed is rarely harvested by some huge companies because it doesn’t have as much popularity with the users. The thing is that it’s very heavy for the nighttime and it strikes within a few minutes while the predominant share of people uses weed for relaxation and pain relief. The other thing that leads to this strain being overlooked is that it’s better breeding indoors and the majority of the small farms are not into investing much into creating near-natural conditions for this plant to grow. There are many people who like the part of uniqueness and exoticism, which is the reason they still plant it.

Viper Cookies is definitely not the most popular Indica-dominant hybrid on the market, and it’s harder to find the dry flower than the seeds, although it’s a staple for those growers who care a lot about the assortment of the weed rather than anything else. It’s also a plant that many growers and pot plants who grow Girls Scout Cookies or Lemon OG have. Plus, being grown outdoors, it gives only one harvest you should crop in October.

There are a few things for you to know to decide to grow this plant for commercial purposes. They are usually available in feminized versions, it yields around 220 of dry flowers per plant, usually works when planted indoors and gives one crop per cycle if planted outdoors. To make the maximum from the seed, it should be cultivated in a semi-humid, Mediterranean climate. The plants tend to be taller so you’ll need to trim them sometimes to allow the preservation of the elements for the flowers, not leaves. Viper Cookies strain flowering time and harvesting cycle is usually 10-11 weeks, which is 2-3 weeks longer than usual Indica-leaning plants. You should also note that this one isn’t the one that you can wait to harvest. As soon as the flowering period is over, it’s time to get it dried to preserve the most aroma and taste.


So, it’s about time to make a verdict on whether you should go for buying or planting Viper Cookies or not. It is a niche strain in the world of cannabis which makes it hard to find and impossible to forget. It has an everything-in-one kind of flavor and taste. It hits you hard from the first minutes and keeps you high for a few hours easily. It’s not your strain in case you have any kind of psychic dysfunctions or suffer sudden changes of mood, though it’s a perfect choice to make for curing severe pain and headache. It’s perfect for the nighttime as it makes you more sociable and talkative and gives just enough energy to get back home at 3 am without feeling too dead. And we can’t emphasize it enough if you tend to over smoke and get beyond high, refrain from this herb as it can cause a lot of damage to your health, at least for a short time. If no contraindications are at sight, this is a strong message of the brain everybody needs once in a while.

Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.34 - 0.63% 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.

CBG 0.09 - 1.04% 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 0.04 - 0.18% 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 0.29 - 0.76% 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.
