Nearly every California medical cannabis patient has heard about the Girl Scout Cookies strain. It has been a huge hit with cannabis connoisseurs since it hit the scene a few years ago.
What Is The Story Behind The Girl Scout Cookies Strain?
A great deal of the Girl Scout Cookies strain’s popularity is due to a mix of solid genetics, controversy, and pop culture promotion. It was frequently rapped about in songs by Berner, a Bay Area collective owner and rapper that you may have seen recently in YouTube videos with popular rap icon, Wiz Khalifa.
The Girl Scout Cookies strain is relatively new to the market and it has not yet truly been stabilized. As a result, there a number of phenotypes floating around, including Platinum Cookies, the Forum Cut, and Thin Mints to name a few. The popularity of the Girl Scout Cookies strain and its various phenotypes has resulted in a great deal of confusion about two things:
- Which phenotype is considered the “real” or “original“ Girl Scout Cookies?
- What is the Girl Scout Cookie strain’s true genetic make-up (or parents)?
Berner credits a breeder named Pie Guy with developing the strain and calls on him to cover a few of these topics in the video below.
