Sugar Cookie Strain

When it comes to naming cannabis varieties, like the Sugar cookies strain, we can say the sky is the limit. Evidently, the creativity of a breeder comes into play during this process. Some breeders prefer to keep it simple and straightforward while others choose to go a little over the top which is also not entirely a bad thing.

Some strains are named after the place they were first developed.

Others take one that closely describes their flavors and aroma while the rest are more of a play on words just to give a really good impression to prospective users.

Most cannabis names explicitly describe what users can expect out of the strain.

However, other strains surprise users with their outstanding potency that somewhat contradicts to their seemingly sweet and innocent names. Perhaps, the saying that goes: don’t judge a book by its cover, also applies to these varieties.

This is the case of the strain named Sugar Cookie. It has a rather harmless name that, most often that not, misleads users into underestimating its strength.

While it can be likened to an actual cookie regarding aroma and flavors, in reality, it is one of the most potent ones around and not as innocent as a cookie.

To prove that point, the following sections below will provide some detailed information about the strain’s most notable characteristics.

The first breeder of Sugar Cookie remains to be unknown. Although, at present, many breeders have attempted to recreate the strain using the same parents. Others, on the other hand, have decided to give it a little twist and merely retained the name of the strain.

Speaking of lineage, Sugar Cookie is said to be the child strain of Blue Hawaiian, Sensi Star, and Crystal Gayle. Contrary to the expectations of some cannabis users, Sugar Cookie is not from the same lineage as the infamous Girl Scout Cookies. The name is derived from the strain’s delicious aroma and flavors.

To begin with, Sugar Cookie is said to be an Indica-dominant strain. The exact ratio of its Sativa to Indica concentration, however, is a bit unclear. Nonetheless, the strain is known to provide one of the most potent highs known to the cannabis community. With THC levels that can reach as high as 26%, indeed, it does belong to the list of highly potent strains in the market.

Being a hybrid, Sugar Cookie offers a cerebral onset that can be described more accurately as an uplifting and euphoric experience. After a few puffs, users will feel happier without necessarily being too overwhelmed by a heightened energy.

Sugar Cookie Effects

As the body buzz of the strain kicks in, users will find themselves engulfed in a state of deep relaxation and full-body calmness that often lead to sleepiness and couch lock. That being said, it is best to use the strain in the evening when users can fully take advantage of its sedative-like property.


As mentioned, Sugar Cookie is named as such mainly because of how it reminds users of an actual cookie. When smoked, the strain gives off a sweet scent that can be specifically described as a combination of berries and tropical fruits with hints of butter and vanilla. Overall, its aroma is something that any cannabis user will surely enjoy.

Now, to give further justification to its name, Sugar Cookie also tastes just as delicious as its name implies. To wit, it tastes like sweet berries and tropical fruits mixed with some vanilla undertones. All these plus a buttery and coffee-flavored exhale for that unique and tasty finish.

Adverse Reaction

We get it. Sugar Cookie can be tempting and easily addicting to some. However, it is not quite the best strain for beginners especially those with low tolerance to the strain’s overwhelming THC concentration.

Sugar Cookie Adverse Reaction

That is just an addition precaution that prospective users should consider. In fact, the strain still has that innate potential of any cannabis variety to cause some adverse reactions to users.

Sugar Cookie is known to have the greatest possibility of causing dry mouth. Other users may also notice signs of dry eyes along with this condition. Other mild cases, perhaps more common among beginners, may involve dizziness, headaches and even paranoia.


With CBD levels not exceeding 0.05%, Sugar Cookie appears to have a lower chance of providing symptom relief. Although it is, in fact, not very helpful to patients who benefit in higher CBD contents, it still has a significant amount of medicinal value.

The strain’s uplifting effect, for example, provides enough boost to a user’s mood which can further help in dealing with stress and depression.

Sugar Cookie Medical

The powerful body buzz of Sugar Cookie, on the other hand, is effective in relieving pain brought about by different health conditions including simple headaches and eye pressure. Also, its sedative-like properties may help induce sleepiness in insomniacs and those who simply need a long and relaxing rest after a stressful day.

This is one aspect of Sugar Cookie that seems to lack verification. Perhaps this is mostly due to the identity of its original breeder is yet to be discovered.

Nonetheless, the available information about its cultivation suggests that the strain may be grown either indoor or outdoor. Although, there no specific growing conditions provided other than the fact the Sugar Cookie is only a clone-only strain.

Flowering Time


If cultivated indoors, the average flowering time of Sugar Cookie is said to be 55 to 65 days or about nine weeks. This will produce a moderate yield of 12 to 16 ounces per square meter.


Unfortunately, there is no available information as to the strain’s flowering time outdoors. However, given its estimated indoor yield, Sugar Cookie can potentially produce an outdoor yield of about 16 ounces or more per plant.
