Looking for some of the best strains on dispensary shelves right now? Cannabis genetics is a never-ending race to the latest and greatest strains, with breeders around the world competing to find the next big thing. Despite ever-evolving cultivation, many of today’s heaviest-hitting strains still come from one genetic line: Girl Scout Cookies strain. In this post, we’re going to review some of the top strains that come from the Girl Scout Cookies line, including Wedding Cake and Gelato.

Girl Scout Cookies Strain Review

Let’s start this review where every relevant strain begins: with Girl Scout Cookies. This 60/40 indica-dominant hybrid is one of the biggest things to happen in cannabis in the last decade. 

Rapper, entrepreneur, and cannabis mogul Berner first grew the Girl Scout Cookies strain in 2010. It traces its lineage back to OG Kush and Durban Poison, a notorious pedigree. That’s given Girl Scout Cookies a powerful THC concentration that usually hovers between 25 and 30 percent.

In addition, the inclusion of traces of CBD and CBN expand this strain’s cannabinoid profile. As a result, it may possess benefits for medical patients, including:

Anti-inflammatory Properties

Studies suggest that both CBD and CBN may be able to reduce swelling and inflammation. This could be a potential boon for patients suffering from conditions such as arthritis or muscle pain.

Relaxation and Improved sleep

Some researchers have concluded that both CBD and CBN may also be able to help improve sleep and promote relaxation.

Finally, no review of the Girl Scout Cookies strain would be complete without mentioning its taste. It possesses a distinct and complex taste, combining sweet cherry tinges with sour notes of lemon, finished off with a minty punch. It’s definitely something you’re going to want to try for yourself. Fortunately, you can find Girl Scout Cookies here.

Wedding Cake Strain Review

If you’re looking for tip-top sweetness, definitely consider the Wedding Cake strain. A cross between Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies, this strain is one of the most popular on dispensary shelves nationwide right now.

One of the reasons for that is its balanced genetic profile. As a 60/40 indica-dominant hybrid, Wedding Cake has similar effects to its parent, Girl Scout Cookies. With a high that tends to be equal parts euphoric and relaxing, this particular cannabis flower can be just as adept at promoting creativity as it is at improving sleep.

While its effects may be similar to Girl Scout Cookies, Wedding Cake’s flavor is all its own. It’s bursting with sweetness, with the fruity edge of juicy berries. Ready to experience it for yourself?

Gelato Strain Review

The final entry in our list of heavy-hitting strains is one of the most modern Girl Scout Cookies crosses: Gelato. A cross between Sunset Sherbert and Girl Scout Cookies, Gelato’s genetic profile is even more balanced than its predecessor. As a 55/45 indica-dominant hybrid, it’s almost an even split.

The Gelato strain can contribute its meteoric rise to both its sweet and sour flavor and its respectable THC content. Sitting around 20 percent, it provides Gelato with a high you’d expect from a Cookies descendant. For most people, it manages to generate both invigorating and low-key vibes, and it makes a great strain for any time of day.

Its flavor is a little more citrusy than the other strains we’ve listed in this review. On top of that, it adds the flower and herbal taste of lavender to the mix. That’s something you don’t see every day in Cookies-based strains. Think Gelato sounds interesting? Try it for yourself!
