About Phantom Cookies

Phantom Cookies is a sativa-leaning hybrid with prestigious genetics and a standout flavor. This popular strain was created by breeder Grandaddy Purple as a cross between his famous eponymous strain and flavorful Cherry Pie. What results is a colorful bud with a complex flavor and a well-balanced high. Phantom Cookies’ THC content has been measured at between 12% and 21%.

Phantom Cookies stands out with large and solid flowers. These buds maintain a distinctly conical shape, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. They also have an indica-influenced structure, with small leaves that curl tightly inward. These leaves themselves are a vivid array of greens and purples, with the latter hues coming about thanks to anthocyanin pigments passed on from parent strain Granddaddy Purple. Vivid orange and yellow pistils and icy white trichomes make these flowers even more eye-catching.

This strain doesn’t just have visual appeal; its buds also give off a pleasantly fruity aroma, with notes of citrus and berry. A second whiff of Phantom Cookies may also pick up on an earthy, woodsy scent. When these flowers are broken apart of ground up, they may smell somewhat sour or even skunky. Burning the strain, meanwhile, gives off a thick, harsh smoke that may cause coughing or watery eyes. On the exhale, this smoke has a sweet and earthy finish. Notably, despite its often purple coloring, any grape flavors discernible in Phantom Cookies are coincidental; this is because the pigments that determine its appearance do not have a corresponding effect on its flavor.

Like many other sativa hybrids, Phantom Cookies begins to take hold shortly after it’s consumed. Within minutes (or sometimes before they’ve even exhaled), users may feel a heady buzz characterized by physical tics like some flushing in the cheeks or a twitching in the temples. The strain’s onset also comes with a marked increase in cerebral thinking; ideas that might not otherwise command much attention may seem to take on a new gravity or intensity. Additionally, thoughts can jump around erratically in free association, making this a great strain to enjoy before kicking off a creative project or a brainstorming session. In some cases, consumers may also experience slight visual or auditory distortions or may feel as if time is passing more slowly.

Although its mental stimulation allows for productivity on both personal and work-related tasks, Phantom Cookies is taken over by more of a physical high after a little over an hour. At this point, smokers may feel a release from any lingering muscular tightness and might just find themselves able to breathe more deeply and easily. This relaxation may come at the expense of physical activity, setting the mood for consumers to unwind after a long day or week of work. Because of its progressively soothing effects, Phantom Cookies is recommended for late afternoon or early evening consumption.

Phantom Cookies also has several medical applications to complement its recreational ones. The strain’s initially cerebral feeling can help those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on single tasks. This bud’s mellow vibe can also temporarily distract from the difficult symptoms of stress and depression. On the physical end of the spectrum, the strain may lessen pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or lupus. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may improve minor irritations like cramps or headaches. Because its mental effects can take a wrong turn into paranoia in the wrong circumstances, Phantom Cookies is not recommended for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.

Fortunately for prospective home growers, seeds of Phantom Cookies are available for sale online. Once obtained, the strain can be cultivated indoors or outdoors in a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants grow short and squat, maxing out at about two feet tall. Per creator Granddaddy Purple, Phantom Cookies flowers within a short eight weeks and can offer a very high yield of up to 74 grams (or 2.6 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.

A great all-purpose smoke for later on in the day, Phantom Cookies is enjoyable whether you’re toking alone or sharing with friends.
