Like GG4 and others to have their names changed, GSC was once known as, and is still often called, Girl Scout Cookies. Unlike the children selling the delicious snacks, GSC is a slightly indica leaning hybrid that has won itself a Cannabis Cup title or two along the way. GSC comes from crossing two titans of cannabis, OG Kush and Durban Poison, and was cultivated by the underground breeding group known as Cookie Family. While its name was forced to change, the sentiment for this strain continues regardless. Giving consumers a potent hybrid high, GSC may not be the treat the kids sell outside the grocery store, but it may just have consumers clamoring for some cookies soon enough.
There is much to love about GSC, and its aromas and flavors rank right at the top. GSC’s flower is regarded for providing consumers with a delightful earthy aroma that is cut by sweet notes. The combination of floral and pine interspersed with sweet and spicy notes has been known to tickle the nostrils in all the right ways. GSC’s OG lineage can be noticed when lit. Here, the spices of the plant truly come to the forefront while users tend to pick up sweet citrus hints as well.
Beta caryophyllene is a terpene that evokes plenty of aromas. Some of its most notable scents are woody, spice and sweetness. As such, it should come with little surprise that it also makes up the majority of GSC’s terpene profile. At 52%, it makes it presence felt much more than the next closest terpenes, humulene (19%) and limonene (10%), which also provides sweet citrus to the profile. In addition to boasting a flavor to fawn over, GSC is one of the most potent strains to consume. While most indicas tend to average a THC potency of 12.5%, GSC has been known to range anywhere between 18% and 28%. In fact, data collected by Wikileaf found that average GSC strain boasted a hefty potency of 26%.
GSC may not be suitable for new consumers with light tolerances. That said, those that can handle it are in for a ride. Typically, users are prone to feeling waves of joy and euphoria that tends to leave people spaced out and feeling creative. The indica portion of GSC comes through loud and clear with a hefty dose of couch lock that often pairs well with snacks. While you may want to put your creative energy to work, you might find yourself more suited for the couch for the foreseeable future.
Today, GSC ranks right up there as one of the most popular strains on the market. This highly potent flower has an aroma to die for and a flavor to match. Able to strike the effects of both indicas and sativas alike, GSC is a true hybrid that evokes the best of all plants. If you haven’t already, seek out GSC today.
