Snowman Strain Review

When you come across a strain with Girl Scout Cookies in its lineage, you know you’re in for a treat. The Snowman cannabis strain is no different.

Sativa/IndicaIndoor YieldOutdoor YieldFlowering Period
70%/30%1-2 oz/ft218 oz per plant7-10 weeks (Indoors) and will be ready for harvest come late October (Outdoors)

This Girl Scout Cookies phenotype, also known as Snowman OG, is a potent strain with a therapeutic (and delicious) terpene profile. Snowman has become popular among cannabisseurs for its balanced high that both sativa and indica fans can enjoy.

Although mysterious origins seem to be a common theme with newer strains on the market, Snowman is particularly difficult to pin down.

That’s because the Snowman weed strain has two variations created by different breeders. There’s Snowman by Berners and Snowman by Emerald Family Farms. Both are Girl Scout Cookies phenotypes, and it’s unclear which breeder came up with the strain first.

    Snowman Strain Effects

    The Snowman cannabis strain has a terpene profile of myrcene, caryophyllene, limonene, and linalool. With a combination like this, you’re guaranteed an experience that will leave your mind, body, and soul feeling rejuvenated and replenished.

    If you’re looking for a strain that can be enjoyed recreationally but still pack a therapeutic punch, you’ve come to the right place.

    Snowman cannabis is a great option for combating mood and stress problems as well as more physical situations such as pain and inflammation. 

    Snowman is also good for stimulating sleep or motivating action. 

    After using the Snowman weed strain, a sense of euphoria fills the mind, leaving you feeling uplifted and happy but not bouncing off the walls.

    You’ll feel motivated and focused, overflowing with an abundance of creative thoughts. As the indica effects take hold, your creativity will turn more introspective, and you may find yourself getting lost in thought. 

    A tingling physical sensation compliments the cerebral buzz, giving you hours of tranquil bliss.

    Most have dubbed Snowman an “all-day” strain; it’s good for a pick-me-up at the start of your day and a wind-down at the end.

    Snowman Strain Fragrance

    Though the name Snowman ignites nostalgia, this one doesn’t smell like a snowy Christmas morning beside a crackling warm fire.

    On the contrary, it’s quite pungent with a very diesel-like aroma. Some have described it as gassy kush. Though this may not sound very appealing, the Girl Scout Cookies heritage comes through to bring an element of sweetness.

    The overall fragrance is kushy and pungent with undertones of sweet vanilla.

    Snowman Strain Flavors

    Snowman tastes much sweeter than it smells. Though you’ll still get notes of diesel, an array of delectable flavors come through to create a smooth and tasty smoke.

    The strain lives up to its Christmas-like name here with notes of apple, citrus, apricot, nutmeg, spicy herb, and vanilla.

    Best of all, though it’s the spicy diesel that comes through first on the inhale, it’s the vanilla that lingers on your taste buds.

    Snowman Strain Adverse Reactions

    The Snowman high lasts hours, so be careful with your consumption. If it’s your first time trying this strain, use it on a day where you have nowhere to be so you can test your limits first.

    After all, you don’t want to take this to boost productivity in the morning only to find yourself longing for bed. Though Snowman is somewhat energizing, many consumers said they experienced sedating effects when consumed in larger quantities.

    It’s not known to cause anxiety or paranoia but can cause dizziness and rapid heartbeat. If these side effects catch you off guard, this can lead to some concern – especially if you’re prone to feeling anxious.

    If you feel your heartbeat rising or start to get a little dizzy, stay calm, take a few deep breaths, and take a moment to sit down and relax.

    With a strain this potent, you’re going to have dry eyes. If you’re an experienced user, you’ll already have your trusted eye drops on hand. If you’re new to cannabis consumption, we suggest a bottle of eye drops.

    Snowman will leave you starving, so grab some snacks while you’re at it. You’re also likely to experience cottonmouth, so drink plenty of water.

    Growing Snowman Strain

    Just one look at the plant, and you’ll understand how this strain got its name. An abundance of trichome coverage gives the plant a frosted appearance as if draped in a thick layer of snow

    . These trichomes are also a good indicator of Snowman’s potency; THC levels range from 21% to 23%. 

    Snowman is slightly sativa dominant, with a 60:40 ratio, though some strains have shown a 70:30 sativa-leaning split.

    Despite being a slightly sativa dominant hybrid, the effects experienced are much more balanced and can even be indica leaning, depending on your consumption.

    Hawaiian Snow is a trifecta of various haze genetics. It is the strain child of Pure Haze, Neville’s Haze and Hawaiian Haze which are both Sativa strains. Read full review

    Now, let’s talk about the environment. Ironically, Snowman prefers warm and humid climates. Its buds are large and dense, so regular pruning is vital to maintain the plant’s optimum health.

    Pruning increases the plant’s exposure to airflow and light and is a great technique to encourage growth and reduce the risk of mildew and mold. 

    It can be grown outdoors and indoors, provided you have what you need to keep the temperature and humidity levels consistent. Beginners can check out ILGM’s growing guide to help you get started.


    Snowman has large, spade-shaped emerald green nugs with forest green leaves and copper pistils. This resinous strain has a thick layer of sticky frosted trichomes.

    Indoor Yield

    Flowering is 7-10 weeks and produces yields of 1-2 Oz/Ft2.

    Outdoor Yield

    Yields of up to 18 Oz/plant will be ready for harvest come late October.
