As great as the Cookies and Cream strain is, it also has a downside. For medical cannabis users, this is a great strain to use in reducing stress. But if you have an anxiety disorder, then this is not the right strain to use, or use one with less trichomes.

Depending on the amount used, it might also leave you feeling tired. In smaller quantity, it does give an energy boost, but a little too much and you start to feel sleepy. Another effect it has is in making the user feel hungry, which means this might be f benefit to those who are having trouble keeping a good appetite.

Flowering Time

Indoor Yield

An advantage of growing indoor is that you could provide it with an environment that makes it flourish. Using an indoor growing tent, you will want to have ample space.

Although there is no documentation, combining the techniques of hydroponics and the Sea of Green (SOG) should lower the flowering time that is estimated to start in 8 weeks.

During harvest, you could expect a yield per square meter of 12 to 16 ounces.

Outdoor Yield

From what we have gathered, the estimated yield if 16 ounces per plant by the time growers harvest Cookies and Cream around the last week of September towards the early part of October.
