Don’t get caught with your hand in the cookie jar, unless of course that jar is filled with BSC, also known as Boy Scout Cookies by Kalashnikov Seeds. Like its more commonly known mother strain, Girl Scout Cookies, this hefty boy is chock full of flavor and deeply satisfying effects, making it the perfect bud for an after dinner treat. As it is a phenotype of the aforementioned parent strain, users can expect all the best parts of Girl Scout Cookies in a slightly skunkier little package.
The THC in BSC isn’t astronomical, but it does strike a solid average ranging anywhere from 18% to 23%. As you might expect, BSC has a delicious aroma of freshly baked sugar cookies rich in butter and skunk. The flavors are extremely similar, with bursts of vanilla, butter, and sugary nuttiness with a slight pungency on the exhale. The buds are large and dense, shaped like spades and covered in dark amber hairs and a thick coating of white trichomes.
Although the ratio of indica to sativa is right down the middle, the effects lean towards an indica-dominant strain. The high hits your head first with a cerebral buzz that is slow building, but powerful. You’ll get overwhelmed by bliss, leaving you euphoric and hazy, even slightly introspective. Your body will then begin its slow descent into silly laziness. Fits of giggles may roll in and out as the waves of hunger ebb and flow. Enjoy your couch lock, but be sure to keep your snack and pillow close because you’ll need them both.
BSC’s versatile effects are highly beneficial for medical users as the sedative properties can relieve even the most stubborn aches and pains while numbing away cramps and headaches. Mood disorders such as depression, stress, and anxiety are manageable with BSC and due to the relatively low impact onset of this strain, it is not too intense for novice users, users with a low tolerance, or those prone to paranoia. For those who suffer from insomnia, try BSC in a higher dose to get the full desired effect.
As breeders have not made seeds readily available for online sales, it’s more difficult for the average person to get their hands on some. As a result of that grow information is scarce, however many recommend obtaining clippings from fully developed plants and raising clones. BSC thrives best in mild humidity, similar to Mediterranean climates, and therefore is best grown indoors. However, it can flourish in an outdoor garden so long as those temperatures are kept relatively constant throughout the cultivation period.
Though harder to find then its brethren, this strain is very much worth the hunt. With bursting flavors and mellow, easy going effects, it's hard not to want to see this one join the ranks as the world's more popular buds. BSC is a great nighttime strain, best if smoked after dinner either in lieu of or in addition to an actual dessert.
