We come from the family of Chocolate strains to the enticing Purple strains that take your breath away with just a single look. However, some strains in the canna-world have made such a long-lasting impression on the smokers that it borders on becoming a classic; Girl Scout Cookies being one of them. 

If you're wondering about those delicious cookies that were a trademark of school girls finding customers, you're absolutely innocent. We all wonder where this name came from, but one slight whiff of this beautiful strain and all your doubts will be put to rest. While many of us are a huge fan of Girl Scout Cookies Strain, now more popularly known as GSC, many of the people on the other side are also not very sure where it gets the hype from. No matter where you find yourself in this category, let's take an in-depth look into the Girl Scout Cookies and find reasons for their glaring popularity. 

Let's get started. 

What are Girl Scout Cookies?

Girls Scout Cookies is not your ordinary strain. It has many accolades and awards to its name, including the many Cannabis Cups that define how heavy and hard-hitting the strain is.

A hybrid with 60% Indica and 40% Sativa, it boasts of having a THC content that surpasses the 25% mark, almost bordering on 28%. By now, I am pretty sure you have your eyebrows raised and an impressed look on your face. Yes, it is that powerful!

The GSC also has phenotypes including the very popular Thin Mint GSC and Platinum GSC. If you're looking for CBD content in your strain, you might want to stay clear of the GSC strains as they have less than 1% CBD. 

Girl Scout Cookies made its way from the Bay Area of Northern California but now is a favourite among North Americans and every enthusiastic toker in the world. Its hype is also attributed to the rapper Berner who is now known as the 'Cookie Fam' pertaining to the strain's reputation. It is bred from the famous OG Kush and F1 Durban and falls in the difficult category when it comes to growing it. But hey, that has not stopped the people from loving it and going gaga over it.
