Cookies Kush Strain

It is a common knowledge that cannabis usually has both mental and physical effects. More often than not, consumers can easily determine when and how long these effects last for each strain. However, one particular strain leaves some users in a somewhat confusing high.

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
30% / 70% 21 to 23 ounces per square meter23 or more ounces per plant 8 – 9 weeks indoors, mid to late September outdoors.

So, what should we make of that?

Apparently, its high is confusing in the sense that some consumers have a difficulty in figuring out the whether it is the Sativa or Indica side kicking in. This highly potent strain is known as Cookies Kush.

A lot of people who have used this strain says that Cookies Kush has the ability to let your experience both its cerebral and physical body highs at the same time. In other words, this Indica-dominant strain induces contradicting effects. Now, that should be interesting.

Aside from that unique characteristic, there are so much more to learn about Cookies Kush. Let us check them out below.

Barney’s Farm, the breeder of Cookies Kush, obviously did not want to get creative in naming their strain. A well-informed user can easily tell that Cookies Kush is a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and a Rolex phenotype of the highly potent OG Kush.

    * 10 is the highest
    * 1 is the lowest


    Cookies Kush has a maximum THC level that is just slightly higher than the average. However, the 18% THC content is still potent enough for any type of consumer.

    Considering that it is an Indica-dominant strain with a concentration of 70%, it has that typical sedative-like effect that is manifested by a relaxed, sleepy and lethargic feeling accompanied by an obvious sign of red-eye. Note that these effects can be felt almost immediately at the onset.

    The remaining 30% Sativa content in Cookies Kush acts as a mental stimulant that will uplift your mood and slightly boost your energy. Users will feel somewhat euphoric and happy.

    Now, this is where the fun part begins.

    Usually, the Sativa side of a cannabis strain kicks in first before the Indica side. But imagine if both the cerebral and physical effects of this strain are felt simultaneously. If so, one can expect to feel lazy yet have just the right amount of energy to move around if necessary. You may feel lethargic and sleepy, but you may still be able to stop yourself from completely dozing off.

    No wonder some users find its high a bit confusing.


    Although the name Cookies Kush would suggest a sweet smell of an actual freshly baked Girl Scout Cookies, this strain actually has a sweet, pungent and earthy scent of lime and apples combined.

    However, if you ask the breeder of Cookies Kush, they would describe their strain’s aroma as that of a freshly baked cinnamon roll.


    For the general users, they could all agree that Cookies Kush tastes like a sweet lime with an aftertaste that reminds you of a Granny Smith apple.

    On the other hand, the breeder strongly sticks to their cinnamon roll nostalgia by saying that the strain tastes like the actual sweet roll with a nutty and earthy aftertaste.

    Overall, its flavor is like a play of different tastes: sweet, minty, woody and fruity.

    Adverse reactions

    Although this strain has a slight to moderate level of adverse reactions, no one should feel the need to smoke more than what is recommended. Both the recreational and medical cannabis users would still experience the typical negative reactions but in a milder degree.

    Cookies Kush can cause moderate dry mouth and mild cases of dry eyes, headache, dizziness and even paranoia.


    The CBD level of Cookies Kush is just a tad higher than the average found in most cannabis. Although it is not impressively high, the strain is still potent enough for medical use. After all, only a handful of strains has a CBD level that can reach 1% or higher.

    Cookies Kush is known to be effective in dealing with chronic pain, stomach cramps, arthritis, fatigue and muscle spasms.

    It has also been proven helpful in alleviating stress, depression, insomnia, lack of appetite and nausea. Some sources also claim that Cookies Kush may be helpful for those people suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Bipolar disorder.
