Everything You Need to Know About Kush Cookies

Jan 19, 2022

In the world of cannabis, some strains truly leave a memorable mark, and Kush Cookies is one of these legendary pickings. The indica-dominant strain has a 70:20 indica to sativa ratio and is the result of crossbreeding two top-tier strains: Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush. It offers a relaxing and wavy body high, along with its pleasurable scents, which are qualities that were responsible for its win in the 2014 High Times Cannabis Cup “Best Coffeeshop Strain” category.

Armed with a powerful blend of pine, chocolate, and floral cannabinoid profile, Kush Cookies has high levels of THC that makes it a top choice for recreational and medicinal consumption. Its fat calyxes are oozing with resin, with white crystals covering its pale green buds. 

In this post, Smokey’s will give you an idea what it’s like to consume the Kush Cookies strain, and everything else you might want to know about it. Before diving right in, make sure to sign up for a Smoke Perks membership to get exclusive discounts and in-store deals! 

Brief History of the Kush Cookies Strain 

The strain was first developed by London-based seed bank, Connoisseur Genetics, after experimenting with seeds from another seed source called ORGN. 

The ORGN seeds were developed years before and were believed to be a product of the Ghost OG Kush cut. Once Connoisseur Genetics got a hold of these seeds, its top breeders crossed the seeds with the reversed Girl Scout Cookies strain. The result was the fruity and spicy Kush Cookies widely enjoyed today. 

Another version of the strain’s inception is credited to Barney’s Farm seed bank, which named the strain “Cookies Kush” instead of “Kush Cookies.” This version from this seed bank in Amsterdam adopted a similar method of crossbreeding the same two popular strains, but with a small difference. The OG Kush strain used in this specific cross was the OG Rollex phenotype from Devil’s Harvest seed bank, another multi-awarded strain responsible for creating acclaimed strains such as Shoreline and Devil’s Glue. 

With a first-place accolade in the High Times Cannabis Cup, the Kush Cookies continue to carry a legacy of offering a quality tranquil buzz and appearance for consumers of all levels.

How the Kush Cookies Strain Makes You Feel

Packed with an astounding 22% THC, the Kush Cookies brings a deep and sinking buzz associated with a happy and euphoric mind state. Because of its high potency and mildly sedating effect, the Kush Cookies strain is recommended to consume during a lazy day, or as a nighttime smoke before hitting the hay. 

Its terpene profile is abundant in limonene, a citrusy terpene researched to help reduce stress relief and anxiety. Aside from that, the Kush Cookies strain is often recommended for aiding certain medical conditions due to its high THC levels.

Since Kush Cookies has a high-THC content with effects that can be felt with quick onset times, new cannabis consumers or beginners are advised to smoke it mindfully. As with other types of indica-dominant strains, the Kush Cookies can leave users with red-eye, and a lethargic feeling just before the calming effects rush in.

Cultivating the Kush Cookies Strain 

The Kush Cookies strain is a moderate to difficult strain to cultivate, and every grower who takes it on must at least have enough knowledge and experience on getting successful yield. The strain is ideally grown indoors or in a greenhouse, as temperatures need to be warmer for the Kush Cookies to thrive outdoors. 

The Kush Cookies strain is known for its strong, pungent smells, and it is best to use carbon filters. The plant can reach up to one metre in height.

Flowering time depends on the growing method and when grown indoors, it should take at least 56 to 62 days. Once the plant is ready to harvest, expect a yield of 21 to 23 ounces per square metre. The flowering stage for outdoor growing ends by the tail end of September, with a possible yield of 23 ounces, or more, per plant. 

An Overview of the Kush Cookies Strain

The Kush Cookies strain is a knock-out strain that can bring in beneficial effects and a sense of deep calmness. While its attractive and dense flowers will make you want to stare at it for a long time, its inviting smell and flavours can bring in a stronger urge to consume it in whatever way you can.

Ideal for low-maintenance activities such as watching movies, a munchies session, or getting a massage, the Kush Cookies strain has the ability to swing you into ease, especially if you’re experiencing burnout.
