The Wookies Strain Guide to Help You Out
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘Wookies’? For Star Wars fans, it’s a large, hairy creature that lives in a far-off land. And if you’re visiting this site to look for that creature, we regret to inform you that you’re in the wrong place. However, if you’re looking for am indica-dominant (70% Indica / 30% Sativa) hybrid strain that will surely make you feel relaxed, read on.
Wookies strain (also called Chewbacca strain and Cocoon Cookie) is a fuzzy and hairy-looking strain, just like the Star Wars character it was named after. It’s average THC level and CBD is 15% and 0.7% respectively.
The Origins Of Wookies
Although someone named Terria Rojo has claimed credit for Wookies weed, no one knows for sure who actually bred this unique blend of three types of marijuana: The White, Girl Scout Cookies (GSC), and Chemdawg 91. This means you get the dense trichomes of The White, the heavenly taste of GSC and the high potency of Chemdawg 91 – all in one.
Wookies Cannabis Effects
Wookies marijuana is ideal for a Sunday afternoon, where all you have to do is relax. Strong sedation is one of the strain effects you will experience; a few tokes and you’re out. This is why we don’t recommend using it if you have important plans for the day. Many pot users have also reported an immediate uplift in their mood after consuming Wookies.
Being a potent marijuana strain, Wookies marijuana strain has a few medical benefits. Firstly, it’s sedative, which makes it helpful for individuals with insomnia. You will find it really hard to even keep your eyes open after consuming it. Moreover, it can also be used by people who are suffering from depression, anxiety or PTSD as it helps in uplifting the user’s mood.
The most common problem that users face with Wookies cannabis is the sedation it causes. After using it, you will be unable to get up from your bed for hours and won’t be able to anything at all. This is known as ‘couch lock’. Some effective ways to overcome it include taking a cold shower, having hot coffee or espresso, and going for a run or swimming.
Aside from this, trying the Wookies weed strain isn’t a good idea if you’re a beginner. The strain is known to have some adverse effects like dry mouth, headaches, dizziness, and paranoia that a beginner might not be able to handle.
Why Should You Choose Wookies Weed?
This strain has many features that set it apart from other strains. These include its exquisite appearance, pleasant aroma, and delightful flavor.
The first thing you’ll notice when you get your hands on the Wookies marijuana is the green color of the sticky and resinous buds. Wookies buds are dense, which means they’re heavier than they look and so a gram will last you longer than you think. This is good because Wookies is one of the priciest strains available in the market.
The scent of Wookies is a bit unusual – but in a pleasant way. You’re most likely to smell a cross of citrus, pine, and fuel; you might get a hint of licorice too if you have an excellent sense of smell.
The best way to enjoy Wookies is to grind it up nice and fine. Although you can smoke it too, you won’t be able to appreciate the flavors as much as when you vaporize it. This is why we recommend investing in a good vaporizer that works with cannabis flowers. Either way, you’ll be able to enjoy the strong sweet taste coupled with hints of sage and mint.
You can also use Wookies to make Butane Hash oil (also known as wax or shatter). Although any strain can be used to make this wax, concentrate creators usually look for good taste and high trichome production (potency); according to this criteria, Wookies is the perfect candidate.
Who Is Wookies Suitable for?
As we mentioned above, Wookies is one of those strains that have a strong sedative effect which can lead to ‘couch lock’. Along with this, it may have some adverse side effects as well, including headache, dizziness, nausea and in extreme cases, paranoia. Thus, Wookies is not recommended for beginners as they are not able to handle the strong side effects.
How Can You Grow Wookies Weed?
Unfortunately, this strain is not available in seeds. Wookies is a clone-only strain, so the chances of you finding it are very low. Even if you do manage to get your hands on its clone, growing this strain will be a bit difficult as compared to other strains. This is because when the Wookies cannabis plant grows fully, its top starts to shade the bottom part. Thus, you will need to cut the extra leaves on top and keep a close eye on the plant. We recommend that you take help from a professional grower.
Wookies tend to grow in dense, sticky buds that are covered with resin. The flowering time for this strain is 49-70 days. If you leave it for all 70 days, you will be able to enjoy the full flower and potency that the strain is known for. Moreover, once you’ve harvested the plant, you need to cure it and let it dry completely before you can use it.
