Sour Cookies by Guru Seeds is a sativa-dominant hybrid with explosive growth, that is suitable for any kind of garden. Effects of this strain include a buzzing head-high that soon gives its place to an intense couch-lock. With a THC count of 20-26%, you should respect this strain if you’re a beginner.
Heritage & Genetics: This strain boasts a premium heritage, as it is a cross between a rare European clone of Sour Diesel, with the infamous Girl Scout Cookies. Origins of the latter are disputed, but it was surely bred in California. Sour Cookies is 70% sativa and has a THC content that hovers between 18-28%.
Flavor & Aroma: Sour Cookies certainly lives up to its name, with a unique spicy smell with diesel undertones. Taste-wise, you will definitely feel the GSC heritage in the rich nutty taste profile, that leaves a sour aftertaste on the exhale.
Effect: The effects of Sour Cookies depend on your tolerance level and how much you consume. Consumed sparingly, it produces a more sativa-like energetic buzz that fizzles into a relaxing sensation. More persistent cannaisseurs will enjoy a deeply relaxing effect. Perfect for a movie night with friends — just don’t forget the snacks.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite, reducing fatigue 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: As a sativa-dominant strain, Sour Cookies is a lean plant with a very vigorous vegetative period. It is a fairly resilient plant that can be grown indoors or outdoors. However, it is important to implement some type of training technique to keep the height in check. SCROG and pruning are essential to maximize usable light and minimize the internode space. The plant will be ready for harvest within 8-9 weeks and will produce nice triangular buds full of delicious trichomes.
