About Kid N Kookies
Remember Kid ‘n Play, the ‘80s hip hop duo known for their towering hair and singles like ‘Aint Gonna Hurt Nobody? Now “Kid” (real name Christopher Reid) is back with a strain named after himself. Kid N Kookies is a cross between Snowman OG and perennial favorite Girl Scout Cookies. This indica-dominant hybrid offers soothing and pain-killing effects.
Once they’re trimmed, Kid N Kookies flowers are small to medium in size and maintain a tapered formation, somewhat like miniature pinecones. Unsurprisingly, the buds have an indica structure, with broad and small leaves that twist inward toward their central stems. These leaves are a dark shade of hunter green. They are twisted through with rust-colored pistils and finished off with plentiful resinous trichomes.
Once properly cured, flowers of Kid N Kookies smell dank and earthy, similar to the aroma of damp soil. A second whiff may pick up on toasted, coffee-like notes as well. When flowers of the strain are ground up or broken apart by hand, they may give off more of a pine-inflected scent. The strain’s flowers burn with a smooth and easily ingested smoke when they are combusted in a pipe or a joint. They leave behind the toasted, earthy flavor that’s often associated with parent strain Girl Scout Cookies.
Kid N Kookies is something of a creeper and may take several minutes before revealing its potent effects. Eventually, users may feel some pressure around the eyes and lower forehead and experience some flushing in the cheeks. As smokers become accustomed to these tics, though, they may experience some cognitive changes. Thoughts may take on a frenzied, fast-paced character or may seem more profound than they usually would. Additionally, certain visual or auditory stimuli may seem to take on a new dimension, contributing to an overall dreamy, psychedelic mood. Although this unique kind of mental stimulation might not foster long-term concentration on complicated tasks, it can an interesting, thought-provoking way to pass a few hours with some atmospheric media (like, say, an old Kid ‘n Play album).After an hour or so, the buzzy mental effects of Kid N Kookies gives way to a relaxed physical state. Smokers may feel waves of relaxation roll down from their neck and radiate outward through the core and limbs. Any consumer who may have been active or upbeat may find themselves suddenly slowed down; tasks that call for physical exertion may seem much less appealing than lounging at home and kicking off a binge-watching session. If dosage is increased, couchlock becomes a serious possibility -- prepare to be immobilized as any earlier stresses or concerns dissolve into the background. Because of its mostly laid back character, Kid N Kookies is recommended for consumption starting in the late afternoon or early evening.
Kid N Kookies’ sedative, almost narcotic effects, can also have clear benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its soothing energy can temporarily relieve the symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Similarly, the strain can numb physical pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may take care of lesser concerns like nausea or headaches. Thanks to its weighty physical effects, Kid N Kookies can be a great sleep aid as well, lulling even insomniacs into a restful slumber. Note, though, that this bud’s body high can be so strong as to bring about dissociation or panic; as such, those who are prone to paranoia or who have a low tolerance for THC should moderate their intake accordingly.
Seeds of this boutique have not been made available for sale online. Instead, home growers should seek out clippings of mature, healthy plants that can be grown as “clones.” These clones can be grown indoors or outdoors in a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants tend to grow short and bushy with strong lateral branching. Growers may want to occasionally trim away any broad, light-block leaves that can prevent low-growing nodes from flowering. This indica-dominant strain flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.
Besides a nostalgic celebrity endorsement. Kid N Kookies offers a deeply relaxing body stone. Its robust, earthy flavor profile may also pique the interest of terpene nerds.
