Nothing quite does the job quite like Zookies, an intense strain for fans of the Cookie cannabis family. The head high is unfocused, blissful, and will leave you floating in the stratosphere. As you come down, the body buzz will have you melting comfortably into your couch for hours.

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
50% / 50% 12 and 14 ounces per square meter16+ ounces per plant 9 weeks indoors, early October outdoors.

The Zookies cannabis strain is a high-powered combo of Animal Cookies and Gorilla Glue #4. Alien Labs combined these animalistic strains, sending users on a real trip from a balanced 50/50 hybrid with very potent THC levels.  Look for numbers that range between 23% and 25%, with some samples as high as 30%.

Zookies is more than a great recreational strain. Zookies weed is excellent for therapeutic use as well. The intensity of the high helps relieves feelings of depression and anxiety. The bliss interferes with the ability to notice chronic pain. It’s a great option for anyone who needs a serious infusion of relief.

Effects

Zookies Strain Effects

Users start to feel the effects of the Zookies cannabis strain almost as soon as they finish their first puff – it’s just that fast. The head high feels almost like being launched into a fuzzy, floating cloud, and it stays around for hours. It’s a blissful and dreamy state that comes with a gentle tingling that builds after the mental effects have hit. Worries will float away on the breeze.

The body high follows shortly after the head high and helps relieve any stress that might have survived. Users will notice a touch of couchlock, but they won’t mind. It’s such a relaxing high that it just feels natural to remain comfortably in place for hours at a time. The combination of both helps users find real peace, calm, and quiet for the hours that it lasts.

Fragrance

Zookies’ first impression is a nutty, cookie scent that comes from its parent Animal Crackers. There are also heavy peppery notes, with a hint of chocolate and some diesel from the Gorilla Glue genes.

Flavors

Those that like biscotti will love Zookies’ flavor. The nutty cookie flavor comes out in force, while chocolate and coffee still follow through. It is less intense than the scent, so users who want something milder in taste will enjoy the experience.

Adverse reactions

First and foremost, like many high-THC strains, there’s a likelihood that users might face cottonmouth or dry eyes. Keeping some water nearby can make that much less of an issue.

More importantly, the sky-high THC levels in the Zookies strain makes it important to watch consumption levels. People with a tendency to get anxious or paranoid with stronger strains should pace their dosage because Zookies is no slouch. People new to cannabis should also be cautious because it hits quickly enough that it’s easy to go overboard in a single breath. Luckily, by pacing and taking it slowly, it’s easy to avoid these symptoms.

Medical

The recreational effects of the Zookies weed strain are legendary. Still, it has plenty of therapeutic use. The blissed-out head high is a sure-fire way to distract anxious thought processes and repetitive worries. It’s also an easy way to step away from depressive thoughts and depression in general. Dark moods have no chance in the face of Zookies.

Everything from PTSD to OCD has been mentioned as lessened by the zookies strain. Stress, anxiety, and panic yield to the unfocused feeling of the head high. Worries fade away as other, more pleasant things become more attractive. This effect is hugely beneficial to the chronically stressed.

Zookies also works on physical symptoms. Problems like muscle tension are wiped out by the delicious, relaxing body high Zookies offers. The tension relief can help with everything from tension headaches and migraines to chronic injuries. Zookies weed also has terpenes known for their anti-inflammatory properties, which can help with chronic pain caused by arthritis, cancer, or fibromyalgia. When balanced with the easy, breezy head high, it’s a perfect distraction from any lingering discomfort.

Most of all, Zookies weed is a perfect companion for anyone suffering from insomnia. The deep body relaxation keeps anyone comfortably in bed; meanwhile, the mild sedative effect makes your brain drift into a long and restful sleep.

Growing

Growing the Zookies Strain

The Zookies cannabis strain is fairly rare, but it’s worth the effort to find and grow. The reports from early growers place it as a moderately difficult strain to grow, with big payoffs.  It’s known for big harvests and big growth, combined with a relatively upright growth pattern. Indoor plants can reach up to six feet, while outdoor plants can reach up to eight.

If you’re confident in your growing skills, you can use some high-stress training techniques to get more bud per plant. Options like topping, fimming, and other trimming ideas are great for coaxing the plant into producing more bud sites. In particular, developing a manifold is a perfect way to grow one plant into a big, beautiful canopy. This style of growing gives each bud site more light, meaning better nugs at harvest.

We don’t currently sell Zookies seeds. Check out other hybrid seeds in our marijuana seed bank.

Growers should also consider lollipopping the plants and watching out for humidity problems. Its ancestor, Animal Crackers, is prone to problems with pests. The Gorilla Glue genetics help mitigate those effects; still, it never hurts to keep an eye out for problems that could affect a harvest.

Flowering Time

Indoors

Inside, Zookies plants thrive. They can reach up to six feet and are typically ready for harvest in about nine weeks. Look for yields between 12 and 14 ounces per square meter indoors.

Outdoors

Northern hemisphere growers can look for a stellar Zookies harvest in early October. The plants prefer stable conditions, so they are best cultivated outside in more Mediterranean climates. They can produce 16+ ounces per plant when grown outside.
