It is difficult to find fault in a strain like Girl Scout Cookies (GSC). Its buds are absolutely beautiful not only for its stunning colors but also for its heavy coat of trichomes as well. Apart from that, it delivers intense recreational effects and effective pharmacological relief through its potent THC levels. Sadly, many do not pursue growing the bud due to its long flowering period.

CannaVenture Seeds decided to improve GSC by mixing in the quick-flowering Trainwreck. Like the former, it is a potent Sativa-dominant bud that earned its place as a legend among cannabis strains.

Resulting from the cross was Cookie Wreck, a well-balanced hybrid that blossoms as early as 8 weeks. Like its parents, it has impressive THC levels of up to 23% that easily make it every thrill seeker’s dream. Adding to its appeal is its high CBD value that appeases health conditions experienced by medical users.

After about an hour or two, a light pressure signals the beginning of the bud’s Indica effects. It trickles down from the temples. It is the same uplifting buzz that induced the happy high. This time, however, its effects center on soothing the body until users are deeply relaxed.

As such, it should come as no surprise that users experience a cottonmouth while using the bud. It also dries the eyes thus causing redness to some degree. The dry spell usually disappears after a few hours but, if symptoms persists, users may down a few glasses of water to stay hydrated.

Apart from the behavioral, Cookie Wreck also has physical benefits. For one, its high levels of THC not only ease pain beginning from the head but also contribute to the anti-inflammatory properties of its 4% CBD.


As a hybrid, Cookie Wreck inherits qualities from its Indica and Sativa genes. It is relatively tall and does not always need to be topped. However, for those with truly limited spaces, cutting the vegetative period short may be a necessity to keep its height under control.

Among Cookie Wreck’s best qualities is its sturdiness. Neither its branches and stalks grow thin in spite of its lankiness. Moreover, both can easily withstand the damaging effects that strong gusts of wind or sudden fluctuations in temperature bring.

Still, there are many growers who prefer cultivating Cookie Wreck in greenhouses and other types of indoor growing space. This is not to say the plant will not thrive in gardens or farms. In fact, it yields better and produces buds with better flavor. However, the threat of pests and the unpredictability of weather always loom.

Indoors, growers can easily adjust factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity. Not only that, the ability to maintain it throughout a certain growing period is guaranteed. Using soil will ensure buds are tastier although hydroponics is also an option for those looking to produce higher yields.

Flowering Time

Cookie Wreck has an indoor flowering period of 8 to 10 weeks. Once ready for harvest, it produces between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter.

Garden grown Cookie Wreck usually yield at least 14 ounces of buds per plant between the second to the last week of October. Under the expert care of a seasoned grower, it can yield much higher and even flower faster.
