Blue Cookies, also known as “Blue GSC” and “Blue Girl Scout Cookies,” is an indica-dominant hybrid cross between two celebrity strains, Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry. As the child of these heavyweight champion strains, Blue Cookies delivers a crushing blow of euphoria straight to the head, where it swiftly sinks down to relax the entire body. Sweet berry flavors fuse with earthy cherry notes in a flavor profile as enticing as the bud’s thick coat of frosty resin that stretches over twisting hues of green and purple. Novice consumers should approach Blue Cookies with modesty, but this strain’s potency is perfect for hard-to-impress veterans. You may also come across another variation of Blue Cookies, a select Girl Scout Cookies phenotype that lacks the Blueberry genetics.
Blue Cookies effects
As with many evenly-balanced hybrids, Blue Cookies takes hold first in the head, with a quick and possibly disorienting rush. This initial buzz soon spreads throughout the body just as smokers notice a change in perception of their surroundings. This merging of head and body high is stimulating but not overwhelming, keeping users grounded and able to bend the experience to fit their surroundings. Blue Cookies is as enjoyable out on a walk or a hike as it is for a night on the couch. This strain’s stimulation of both brain and both also makes it great for activities that involve both — it can be a good exercise aid and even an aphrodisiac. Similarly, Blue Cookies has value as a medical treatment for both physical and psychological afflictions. Its sense of lucidity and focus can be great for patients with attention deficit disorders. It can also have powerful effects on depressed or anxious mood, providing anything from mellow contentment to euphoria. Somatic relaxation makes Blue Cookies a good analgesic treatment for aches, pains, and nausea. In high enough concentrations, this can help insomniacs find deep and restful sleep.
Despite its potent and well-rounded high, authenticated seeds of Blue Cookies can be hard to come by. Prospective growers may need to obtain clippings from mature plants of the strain in order to grow healthy clones. Once procured, Blue Cookies can be grown indoors or outdoors, although outdoor growing calls for a moderate to warm climate with consistent daytime temperatures in the 70 to 74 degree Fahrenheit range. Indoor growing conditions can be more deliberately controlled, and the short to medium-height plants can take well to limited spaces — especially if growers do some limited bending and pruning early in the vegetative stage. Growers should also regularly trim away the broad fan leaves that grow at the top of plants in order to let light and air reach the lower flowering nodes. Bringing out this strain’s signature colors requires “shocking” the plant by exposing it to some colder than average temperatures just before flowering begins. Blue Cookies flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors, at which point growers may need to provide artificial supports like wooden dowels to keep the thick buds from weighing down branches. This strain offers an average yield of flowers.
If you can come by it, Blue Cookies offers a great taste and a crowd-pleasing, well-balanced high. Its potency makes it enjoyable for newbies and experienced cannabis users alike. As long as it’s consumed in moderation, this strain’s versatile make it appropriate for both daytime and nighttime enjoyment.
