Who does not recognize Elmo’s friend, Cookie Monster? The furry monster is, after all, cuddly and lovable, and noisy too. For that reason, it is easy to assume that the Cookie Monster strain can make people more talkative. If it is a Sativa strain, then the cerebral high it delivers can do that.
|Sativa/Indica %||Indoor Yield||Outdoor Yield||Flowering Period|
|20% / 80%||17 to 23 ounces per square meter||21 ounces or more per plant||8 – 9 weeks indoors, mid to late October outdoors.|
Information about Cookie Monster:
As it is, Cookie Monster is an 80% Indica strain. Hence, we can assume that its effects are more on the physical body. To that end, the strain does not disappoint. In fact, at one time, it took top honors as the best US Indica in the 2014 Hightimes Cannabis Cup.
Cookie Monster came with a pedigree. Its parents are both among the most popular strains in the world and for good reasons.
One of its parents is the legendary OG Kush, a strain known to deliver an intense high that takes away stress. Its other parent is the Girl Scout Cookies. GSC is a strain that induces euphoria as well as complete body relaxation.
As is the case of all marijuana strains, each one takes the best traits of its parents. In that sense, we held Cookie Monster to a high standard and it has never failed to deliver.

Using Cookie Monster can be deceiving, especially during the onset of its effects. In some instances, there are people expecting a monstrous rush of cerebral high. But rather than the buzzing high, what the strain delivers is a mellow buzz that makes users feel happier. Unlike the heavy Sativa hit in which users become euphoric, this strain rarely has the effect. It does make users feel tingling sensations.
It is not until the physical body high creeps in that there is a realization. One that understands how potent the strain is. In some tests, its THC has been measured to be as high as 24%. Once it kicks in, fighting off the urge to sit or lie down is an exercise in futility. As a matter of fact, that is what users would want to do anyway as their whole body is now in complete relaxation.
Surprisingly, even with its powerful sedative-like property, not everyone will feel sleepy. Having said that, it still serves as a prelude to slowing down in the evening before finally going to sleep.
Due to its lineage, it may come as a surprise that rather than having a dominant odor of kush, Cookie Monster has a more pronounced blend of mint and wood. Most cannabis users should find its scent appealing.
A lot of people who use Cookie Monster use it because of its sedative-like Indica effects. But that also comes at a price. For instance, users are most likely to experience dry eyes. Not that it can make anyone blind, but it can be an annoyance.
A solution to that is to drink lots of water and at the same time, making sure not to use too much. If so, then there are also other negative reactions to watch out for. Some of them include feeling dizzy, a little more anxious, or having a mild headache.
If the goal of using Cookie Monster is for medical reasons, then the strain does offer a few benefits. Because of the heavy physical body high, users feel relaxes. In turn, these benefits those who are dealing with a lot of stress. To a certain degree, it may also be useful for those with depression and even PTSD.
The sedative-like effects, on the other hand, can help in alleviating the symptoms of pains. To this end, Cookie Monster is useful to patients with illnesses that are making them suffer.
In most cases, there are also people who will feel a little sleepy after using Cookie Monster. This, in turn, helps the users fall asleep. Because of this tendency, the strain is not for use during the day when there are things to do.
It would have been nice if there are seeds available. Unfortunately, it seems that the only way to grow this strain is through cloning. In other words, growers need to secure a clipping from a mature plant.
If so, then it can be grown in both outdoor and indoor environment. In both cases, there is no reason why it should not thrive. Although we suspect that growers would need a little experience to grow this plant successfully.
We could not find much information about planting and harvesting the Cookie Monster strain. But we do know that it is ready in 8 to 9 weeks during which its yield per square meter is around 17 to 21 ounces.
Same as for growing indoor, there is also a lack of information here. Although Indica-dominant strains tend to grow in a shorter time, Cookie Monster should be ready in the mid-part of January for it can have a yield of 21 ounces or more per plant.
