INDICA DOMINANT | REAL COOKIE DOUGH SMELL | F5
From Humboldt Seed Company: “If you’re talking about legendary cannabis genetics, strains like GSC are up there on weed Mount Rushmore. Born in the Bay Area and spread throughout the world to become the backbone of modern-day cannabis strains, Cookies genetics have grown to become household names in the cannabis community. Now, strains like GS Cookies exist to carry on its legacy.
Here’s what you should know about what the GS Cookies cannabis strain is, how it grows, and what it smells, tastes, etc.
GS Cookies (also called GS Monster) is an indica-dominant hybrid cross of Purple Panty Dropper (PPD) and GS Cookies. It is similar to the original GSC (Girl Scout Cookies), which is the hybrid strain that created the entire genre of Cookies genetics.
GSC was originally bred by Cookies (the brand) up in San Francisco, California around 2010. It immediately became a hit and spread throughout the world, becoming a parent for many other popular strains like Thin Mint Cookies, Platinum Cookies, and of course, Gelato.
Since then, many of the authentic GSC genetics has been lost, but thankfully companies like Humboldt Seed Company have bred and stabilized their own true version of this Northern California legend. That’s where GS Cookies/GS Monster comes into play.
According to Humboldt Seed Company founder Nat Pennington, GS Cookies was stabilized with a cut of Forum Cut Cookies, which was created from the F1 cut of Durban Poison crossed with OG Kush.
GS Cookies produces large plants from seed. It doubles the harvest expectations compared to GS Cookies strains grown from clone counterparts. The buds from GS Cookies are extremely compact. They can range in color, but typically, they hold a solid mix of green and purple foliage.
According to HSC, indoors, GS has a flowering time of 55 days; and outdoors, you can expect harvest time to fall somewhere between the end of September/early October.
GS Cookies has a complex aroma that includes orange, pine, and skunk flavors. This is all thanks to a terpene profile dominant in limonene, myrcene, and pinene, amongst other minor terps.
