About Cosmic Cookies
Cosmic Cookies comes to us by way of Pacific NW Roots, a rare hybrid cross between Chem's Sister and the infamously well-loved Girl Scout Cookies. From its parents, this Indica-dominant (60/40) strain inherits an ability to cause a rush of mental energy that increases feelings of relaxation and creativity. The THC is high (23.5%) and ever since debuting in the San Francisco area in 2011, the strain has become a new favorite. Easy to grow and powerful when consumed, Cosmic Cookies has a lot to offer.
Its main terpenes are Beta-Caryophyllene and Beta-Myrcene, which heavily impact the flavors and effects the strain has. Beta-Caryophyllene is what gives strains the ability to impact CB2 receptors in your body like CBD does, which is why it's the flavor associated with inflammation relief. Beta-Myrcene, on the other hand, is where strains get their sedating, couch-locking, musky, and clove-like flavors from. The combination in Cosmic Cookies creates a euphoric, creativity-inducing, relaxing smoke. Users who want to get some work done on their creative hobbies, knit, read, sleep, or play games are well-suited to Cosmic Cookies.
In terms of growing Cosmic Cookies, the strain flowers in 8 to 9 weeks and is a durable plant throughout the growing cycle. This makes it a good pick for novices who have never grown an auto-flowering strain before. In this strain's case, giving it too many nutrients is more dangerous than not giving it enough. The plant grows into over-large, airy buds that are bright green under dark yellow pistils. The crystal trichomes are colored a shiny amber.
The strain's flavors feature a pronounced sourness and a strong flavor of herbs, mixed with potent chemical and fuel flavors that are even more pronounced when using the strain to vape. On the exhale, you may be able to taste vanilla under the harsh diesel aroma and undertones of nutty, earthy musk. Its effects in small doses can be creativity-inducing for people who suffer from stress, depression, and mood swings. Cosmic Cookies is a favorite for composers and painters for that reason.
In larger doses, the strain's high THC levels impact the user's ability to stay awake, which is why some have suggested that its sedative properties can help users sleep. Regardless of how much you use, the strain's euphoric, creativity-inducing impact on your brain will help you relax and work from the first toke to the last. The chemmy, sour earth and nutty herb flavors are just a bonus, for those that take potency as a compliment.
