All About Zookies Cannabis Strain
Zookies is another heavily-weighted strain that is evenly blended (50 Indica /50 Sativa) to deliver you to the furthest destinations of your spirit. Originated from Gorilla Glue #4 (GG4) and Animal Cookies it is a child of Alien Labs. You can understand from the name itself that this strain will hit you hard, and not only because it has some inherited parent qualities.
Zookies weed strain is high in THC with 23 – 27%, which makes it great for social occasions or deep meditating and spacing out. However, it is not the best choice for novice users. As for CBD, its amount is just 0.46 – 1.05% and it’s way too little for claiming that it even has it as it’s so insignificant.
Taste and Smell
The aroma of this hybrid is early-dominant, with peppery notes, orange, and sour fruits tints, and you can also feel the diesel and nutty presence in it. It is all wrapped in the cloud of cookie smell that makes this strain a gourmand-leaning one. It has a distinctively sweet, peppery, a bit spicy, and earthy flavor that doesn’t stay for a long time. It also has a characteristic bitterness of the hemp and, unlike with Sunset Sherbet, you can really taste it. Aside from genetics its Cedrene, Bisabolol, Caryophyllene, Linalool, Valencene terpenes that influenced the strain’s aromas and taste.
Consumers report Zookies cannabis to produce such effects:

As any other representative of the weed family whose THC level is higher than 15%, Zookies weed has limited medical applications. The reason for this is that it has a very powerful cerebral effect, and it causes temporary changes in your psychic state. However, there are a few cases where the usage of Zookies is absolutely needed as an additional treatment. That includes:
- Cramps (especially for women who are on their period)
- Chronic pain
- Depression (small doses, preferably in the form of edibles)
- Muscle spasm (especially after intensive straining)
The most common negative effect when ‘overdosing’ is falling deadly asleep, especially if this is your first time smoking pot. Other side effects may include dry eyes, cottonmouth, lack to focus and anxiety.
Before buying seeds, which are not the cheapest on the market, you need to know the peculiarities of the cultivation that this hybrid has to make sure you produce the best thing for yourself or your customers.
It grows best outdoors under the natural conditions of the equatorial/Mediterranian climate with mild humidity and a lot of shadows. However, it doesn’t mean that it has less yield or grows bad in the greenhouses, though we need to warn you: if you live in a naturally cold climate, that can cause a pretty a lot of damage to the budget as maintaining those conditions for 9-10 weeks will cost some money, so in case you’re not going to sell it, there is a little reasoning for cultivating it and makes much more sense to just buy the dry flowers or edibles.
In terms of height and width, it takes those from both worlds: they are pretty tall and moderately wide. You need to know about it before getting ready for planting. 1 bush usually makes 200-220 grams of dry flowers.
