COOKIES SEEDS - THE HISTORY
The Cookies genetic line, traces its roots back to California's medical marijuana legalization in 1996. Originating in the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area, the iconic Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) strain emerged in the early 2010s from a cross of OG Kush and Durban Poison. It was created by a secretive collection of breeders known as the Cookie Family collective, a nexus of cannabis connoisseurs and expert breeders including rapper Berner and Mario "Sherbinski" Guzman. With astute branding and marketing, fueled by the rise of social media and endorsements from hip-hop giants like Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg, the Cookies brand catapulted to global prominence. Over time the original cookies genetics were continuously refined and crossed with other top shelf strains to create a whole series of incredible strains including the likes of Animal Cookies, Gorilla Cookies, GMO Cookies to name but a few. Today, the Cookies strains are revered not only for their rich background but also for their consistent quality, making them a staple in any cannabis aficionado's grow room.

The amalgamation of these terpenes creates a palette of flavors, evoking thoughts of baked desserts speckled with walnuts and a subtle cherry finish. This unique blend of flavors and scents underscores the emphasis placed by Cookies family breeders on crafting strains with rich desert-like flavors rather than just focusing on potency and yield.
Tips for growing Cookies cannabis strains
Growing Indoors: Growing Cookies seeds indoors is relatively simple, their Indica dominance means they don't grow too tall so they are relatively easy to maintain. It's also a beginner-friendly strain, so even novice growers can expect decent results.
Provide Support: As they near the end of their flowering phase, the plants may require additional support due to the weight of the buds. Stakes or support nets can be helpful.
Using Pruning Techniques: Various techniques like training, ties, grips, or 'super cropping' can enhance the growth pattern and yield. They're versatile, adjusting well to different methods.
SCROG: When grown indoors, adopting the SCROG (Screen of Green) method can boost bud production, directing the plant to grow bushier and ensuring more yield.
Beware of the Aroma: Especially towards the flowering end, strains like GSC or GMO Cookies can produce a potent aroma. It's advisable to have efficient odor control measures in place. Some growers even double their activated carbon filters.
Outdoor Cultivation Nuances: These strains flourish in sunny, warm climates with humidity levels below 60%. If you're in a colder region, consider using a greenhouse for better results.
Harvesting Time: For outdoor growth, harvest is typically in mid-October in the northern hemisphere. It's crucial to ensure full light exposure for the best yield.
Flowering Period: Indoors, Cookies strains flower within 9 to 10 weeks. When grown outdoors in favorable conditions, expect a yield of about 10oz/plant by mid-October or indoors 500g/m2.
