Animal Mint Cookies (aka Animal Mints) is a balanced indica-dominant hybrid, with a high THC content and a heavy sedative effect. Due to its terpene and cannabinoid profile, Animal Mints is better suited to users with high tolerance. The strain is quite hard-to-grow and will flower within 8-10 weeks.
Heritage & Genetics: Animal Mints was first bred as a clone-only variety by Seed Junky and boasts some amazing genetics in its lineage. A cross between Animal Cookies and a combination of Girl Scout Cookies x Blue Power, this strain is a high-THC balanced hybrid with a slight indica edge and minimal amounts of CBD.
Flavor & Aroma: The aroma and flavor of Animal Mints are a balanced combination of its parental traits. When cracked open, the buds emanate a piney and nutty essence, that transforms into an overpowering sweet minty taste when consumed. Vapers will be able to discern a cookie dough and citrus twists in the taste.
Effect: Although Animal Mints is a pretty balanced indica hybrid, its effects are definitely more extreme. The strain produces a heavy body-stoned effect, accompanied by feelings of intense relaxation. As a result, it is recommended for evening use or by people who suffer from sleeplessness.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: The combination of indica and sativa genetics means that the plant grows vigorously both vertically and horizontally, making indoor cultivation challenging. More experienced growers will see impressive results with SOG techniques, but even then, maintaining proper airflow and light penetration on the undergrowth will take some work. Animal Mints will be ready for harvest at about 8-10 weeks from planting. Yields are well above average, while the buds are thick and coated with resin.
