About Sugar Cookie
When you hear a name like Sugar Cookie, most cannabis fan’s minds will go straight for the idea that this is an offshoot of the famed Girl Scout Cookies, but that’s not the case here. This sugary sweet hybrid by Oregon Green Seed is actually not in the Cookie family at all. Sugar Cookie is, in fact, a three-way cross between the very popular Sensi Star, Blue Hawaiian, and Crystal Gayle.
The moniker probably stems from its unusually sweet flavors, because nobody can figure what else it would be. Other than the strong tropical fruit and brown sugar palette this strain has to offer, the basic structure of Sugar Cookie versus any other Cookie strain is entirely different. These resinous buds pack a massive THC average of 24% and readable CBN that falls around 1% typically. This guarantees the user a strong and heady high from these dense, olive green and trichome covered nugs.
Sugar Cookie’s high is relaxing in nature and uplifting by design. Though it is a 60/40 blended strain, the bursts of energy on the front end from the sativa give you a blissful uptick before settling into an inevitable deep sleep. After the initial surge, you’ll experience waves of soothing tingles that relax your muscles and sink you into a state of complete chill. It’s not unheard of to get a jolt of creative energy at this phase, but the physical desire to do anything but rest will be lacking.
If you are strictly a medical user you’ll love to hear that Sugar Cookie has a myriad of uses. Because of its initial energizing property, it’s great for lifting the mood and therefore making it beneficial to those who suffer from depression, stress, bipolar, or even mild cases of fatigue. Though, don’t expect this to be keeping you at a high for too long as it is also a strong sedative and will induce sleep. This makes it highly recommended for insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and mild cases of night terrors. New or novice users be aware that this strain can become overwhelming quickly, so proceed with caution.
For home growers that want to add a pleasant smelling plant to their garden or terrarium, Sugar Cookie is a relatively simple one to attempt. The flowering cycle of this plant is around 7 to 9 weeks with a relatively high yield. These plants grow to mid-height if left alone and are a great addition to any indoor system.
Sugar Cookie is most definitely an evening or night time use strain and will have you feeling at ease and ready for bed in just a few hits. Because of this, newer users are advised to take it slow. You may not feel it at first, but it’s there – just give it a minute. Enjoy the flavorful cross of the three fan favorites that make up its unique profile of aromas and tastes. This ultra sweet nightcap bud is most certainly going to be one of your go-tos in no time.
