Monster Cookies Strain Information :
An indica-dominant hybrid that draws on some solid and tasty genetics is Monster Cookies. This strain is a cross between the flavourful and eye-catching Granddaddy Purple and the omnipresent Girl Scout Cookies. This history gives the flowers a high and nuanced, fruity flavour that is soothing. Cannabis research lab Analytical 360 has found Monster Cookies to have a moderate range of 10 percent to 15 percent THC composition, although it is considered to be a potent variety.
Thanks to a thick indica-type bud structure, this strain is characterized by medium-sized nugs that retain its form. The sticky and tightly-coiled leaves are mainly forest green, but are accentuated by deep blue and purple hues, arising from pigments called anthocyanins that are induced throughout the growth phase by cold temperatures. The bright buds are given a frosty overlay by short-talked white trichomes; they often make this a tough strain to split up by hand. Monster Sweets, identical to the parent strain Granddaddy Purple, has a mainly berry and grape-tinged flavour profile. Breaking up or burning the buds gives off in this strain’s lineage more of a spicy, incense-like quality, compliments of the OG Kush. Cured appropriately, it has a smooth, simple smoke on the exhale that tastes dank and sweet. This is also an especially acute burden, so the required steps should be taken by smokers seeking to keep their intake under wraps.
There is indeed a high in Monster Cookies that creeps up on the customer and eventually confers a hard body block. For several, the desire to melt into the closest couch imaginable can prove daunting. Although there can be some intellectual stimulus, the mental qualities of this strain are largely determined by its profound physical relief. Smokers will be totally at ease, happy to sit in one place, but enough uplifted to be social and chatty. Monster Cookies is definitely not the ideal choice for those trying to complete work or finish errands because of these trippy, dreamy qualities.
Cannabis beginners should moderate their initial dose because of this strain’s potency and then ramp up if necessary.
Its near-narcotic properties give Monster Cookies powerful analgesic effects for patients with medicinal cannabis. Both incidental from injury or suffering and chronic from conditions such as fibromyalgia, it can be an important way to relieve aches and pains. It has also been said to soothe headaches and migraines, and can allow people with insomnia to achieve deep, permanent sleep in sufficient enough doses.
Seeds of Monster Cookies are not commercially available; as such, those attempting to develop this strain must procure cuttings from mature plants in order to grow similar “clones.” It can be grown successfully indoors or outdoors, but outdoor cultivation includes Mediterranean-like climates in the 70 degree Fahrenheit range with some humidity and daytime temperatures. The plants of Monster Cookies, like those of many other Indica types, grow small and bushy with a large system of lateral branching. In order to let light and air break through to the thick lower branches, growers should look to “top” their plants by trimming any high-growing fan leaves. Those trying to bring out the full colourful potential of the buds of this strain should also activate their anthocyanin pigments by exposing the cold weather to the plants just before flowering takes place. When grown indoors, Monster Cookies bloom within 8 to 9 weeks and are ready for harvest when grown outdoors in late September or early October.While it only gives an average yield to farmers, its flowers are usually wide and will need to be kept up by improvised stakes to prevent crashing on their branches. Growers can also properly heal their Monster Cookies flowers after the long cultivation period to maintain their vitality and bold taste.
A perfect example of the genetic bounty that continues to yield the phenomenally famous Girl Scout Cookies is Monster Cookies. It’s the quintessential smoke of the night, the intense and dreamy high of which is best consumed alone or with a small group of friends. The fruity, crowd-pleasing taste of this flower and its strong high sedative can mark it as a new Indica fan favourite. Cookie Monster has never laid his hands on any Monster Cookies, but we’re pretty sure he’d be calling for more if he did.
