Pearl Scout Cookies is a Washington-born phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies cultivated by Fireline. Like the latter, it is insanely potent. And, when consumed in excess, can easily deliver a devastating high. Used moderately though, the Indica-leaning bud is quite pleasant to the senses. It can even jumpstart one’s day.

Pearl Scout Cookies is indeed a thrill seeker’s strain. With THC levels that average between 22% to 23%, it can easily soar to new heights with its cerebral focused effects. While its potency can seem overwhelming to less experienced users, beginners can still enjoy the strain with the expertise of a seasoned friend.
Like its parent, Pearl Scout Cookies exhibits Sativa-like effects despite its largely Indica component. Thus, its initial onset is often marked by a mental upliftment that leaves users feeling happy from within. Not only that, it provides a mild creative boost.
As the euphoric buzz ebbs down from the temples, the Indica effects begin to manifest. It soothes the muscles until users feel completely relaxed. Coursing through the limbs is an energizing buzz that though intense does not cloud the senses at all.
Pearl Scout Cookies smells like freshly cut lemons and oranges. Blending with it energizing citrus is a subtle undertone of pine and herbs which intensify once the buds are either broken apart or combusted.
As a phenotype, Pearl Scout Cookies exhibits a unique terpene profile from its predecessor. Rather than tasting like cake or cookie batter, PSC’s strong citrus burst in the palate full of zest. Its herbal undertones complement the taste of sour lemon which, on the exhale, leaves a lingering aftertaste.
Most likely, users will experience a cottonmouth while smoking marijuana. But, as cannabinoids interfere with the production of moisture in the tear ducts, the eyes will dry too. Though barely noticeable to veterans, the mild dehydration can be quite uncomfortable for beginners. In such cases, it is best to have a glass of water nearby.
Overconsuming Pearl Scout Cookies, however, can be a cause for concern. In high doses, the Indica-leaning strain can cause people to feel a little anxious or slightly paranoid. To some degree, it may also temporarily dizzy users. For this reason, the bud must always be paced and used with caution.
Pearl Scout Cookies has various therapeutic benefits due to its high THC levels. For one, it induces a mood enhancing high that makes managing depression and other mental illnesses like PTSD a little easier. Meanwhile, its anxiolytic properties calm the overwhelming nervousness and apprehension that comes with being constantly bombarded by stress.
One of the physical manifestations of stress is fatigue characterized by exhaustion and bodily pain. To which, Pearl Scout Cookies’ soothing body high perfectly addresses. The relaxing sensation also relieves headaches.

In this way, breeders can control important factors such as lighting, temperature, and ventilation. Its bushiness requires constant pruning and trimming though. This will encourage better light and air circulation. Plus, it redirects nutrients to healthier budding sites and branches.
