Balanced Marijuana Hybrid Cookies and Cream

Cookies and Cream

Baking isn’t just something you do in the oven, as many of us know there are many slang terms for medicating with cannabis and one such is, “getting baked.” This week we are combining the two and checking out the balanced hybrid strain Cookies and Cream! A sweet tasting and smooth smoke that is great for relaxation throughout the day but that can lull you to sleep after devouring enough. So get a glass of milk, your favorite cookie, and roll up some smoke as we delve into this delicious dankery. Hopefully after reading this post you’ll feel like one smart cookie, or as I like to call them, Academia Nut Cookies!

Cookies and Cream is what happens when Starfighter and a Girl Scout Cookies phenotype get crossed. Ready for some science? Phenotype describes the plants appearance, behavior, biochemistry, and developmental growth. Plant genetics and environment conditions are what changes a plants phenotype and can help explain variations in the way buds from one plant are different from buds from a different plant of the same strain. Though the seeds are the same strain one plant may produce more sativa looking plants growing tall and slender, but on another growing thick chunky indica looking buds. This strain is not known for producing large flowers but grows small, trichome covered popcorn kernels that give off an earthy and vanilla aroma. It’s been known to be great for treating anxiety, depression, insomnia, and stress.

Cookies and Cream is a strain I enjoy for daytime use as it chills me out without knocking me down and I don’t have to worry about coughing up a lung while enjoying it. I’ve yet to find a bag with a strong vanilla smell to it but have had several with a sweet, earthy, and very herbal scent. Cookies and Cream provides me with an all over body relaxation that isn’t too heavy but gets exponentially so with each additional bowl. Even after enjoying two bowls from my favorite bong I’ve been able to continue working without becoming too spaced out or tired. Once the third bowl comes into play the yawns begin. Cookies and Cream could very well be called Cookies and Dreams because the sleep from this flower always leaves me feeling well rested.

Myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene dominate this strain’s terpene profile, but as we’ve already talked these terpenes I thought we’d check out another terpene found in many cookies strains. Can you guess hu I’m talking about? Humulene! The terpene that helps fight hunger! When I first heard of strains of cannabis that could help you decrease your appetite I was surprised. I had thought for a long time that while not all marijuana made munchies materialize there were no strains that would decrease your hunger. Once I thought back to times I’d smoked and forgot about dinner until bedtime I noticed a pattern. Sure enough the strains I noticed that in were high in humulene! This terpene is a hoppy, woody, and herbal in flavor and is so closely related to caryophyllene it was once classified as α-caryophyllene. In fact, humulene occurs in higher numbers in strains also high in caryophyllene. Humulene is known to have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antifungal, and pain relieving properties.

Joking and Toking:

Why was the cookie so sad?

His mom was a wafer so long!
