Cookies Kush Cannabis Strain
A lot of people who have used this strain says that Cookies Kush has the ability to let your experience both its cerebral and physical body highs at the same time. In other words, this Indica-dominant strain induces contradicting effects. Cookies Kush has strong kush flavor that is lightened by sweet lime and pungency. The aromas are quite similar with a bit of granny smith apple on the nose. The buds are olive green and with minty green patches and fiery orange hairs. The trichomes that envelope each nug are translucent and rife with resin.
Cookies Kush has a maximum THC level that is just slightly higher than the average. However, the 18% THC content is still potent enough for any type of consumer.
Considering that it is an Indica-dominant strain with a concentration of 70%, it has that typical sedative-like effect that is manifested by a relaxed, sleepy and lethargic feeling accompanied by an obvious sign of red-eye. Note that these effects can be felt almost immediately at the onset.
The remaining 30% Sativa content in Cookies Kush acts as a mental stimulant that will uplift your mood and slightly boost your energy. Users will feel somewhat euphoric and happy.
Now, this is where the fun part begins.
Usually, the Sativa side of a cannabis strain kicks in first before the Indica side. But imagine if both the cerebral and physical effects of this strain are felt simultaneously. If so, one can expect to feel lazy yet have just the right amount of energy to move around if necessary. You may feel lethargic and sleepy, but you may still be able to stop yourself from completely dozing off.
The Cookies Kush high can be a bit jarring to some as it brings together two opposing sensations that build and build as the high continues. On the initial rush you’ll feel an immediate sedation that leaves you a bit lethargic. Your eyes may get dry and red at this point and if you are susceptible to that side effect this may become very uncomfortable. While you are settling into this phase you’ll feel your head getting light and energetic and your thoughts may race. You’ll feel quite mellow and lazy, but because of this juxtaposing energy you can function if you have to.
Although the name Cookies Kush would suggest a sweet smell of an actual freshly baked Girl Scout Cookies, this strain actually has a sweet, pungent and earthy scent of lime and apples combined.
However, if you ask the breeder of Cookies Kush, they would describe their strain’s aroma as that of a freshly baked cinnamon roll.
For the general users, they could all agree that Cookies Kush tastes like a sweet lime with an aftertaste that reminds you of a Granny Smith apple. On the other hand, the breeder strongly sticks to their cinnamon roll nostalgia by saying that the strain tastes like the actual sweet roll with a nutty and earthy aftertaste.
Overall, its flavor is like a play of different tastes: sweet, minty, woody and fruity.
The CBD level of Cookies Kush is just a tad higher than the average found in most cannabis. Although it is not impressively high, the strain is still potent enough for medical use. After all, only a handful of strains has a CBD level that can reach 1% or higher. Because of this you can utilize this for pain, muscle spasms, and insomnia as it will leave you feeling extremely sleepy as you start to come down.
Cookies Kush is known to be effective in dealing with chronic pain, stomach cramps, arthritis, fatigue and muscle spasms.
It has also been proven helpful in alleviating stress, depression, insomnia, lack of appetite and nausea. Some sources also claim that Cookies Kush may be helpful for those people suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Bipolar disorder.
