Girl Scout Cookies Feminized is 50 % indica & 50 % sativa. It is one of the most popular strains to emerge from the explosion of breeding in California. Parent plants include the legendary South African sativa Durban, crossed with the indica strain Hindu Kush, and OG Kush, an Afghani/Californian indica hybrid. The resulting feminized seed strain is an ideal balance between sativa and indica, with high resin production and sweet aromas. They are known as easy to grow, productive strains with high THC levels. This strain retains all of these characteristics, making it a solid option for novices. It is also an ideal choice for more experienced growers who can unleash its full, impressive potential.
The growth of Girl Scout Cookies
They produce uniform plants that flower in nine to ten weeks. This strain gains a good amount of height during the flowering period, which improves its yield without becoming uncontrollable.
Outdoor and greenhouse plants can easily reach 200 or 250 cm by harvest time in October. Indoors, cuttings can flower at around 30-40 cm to reach a final height of 100 cm. If the original seed plants flower at this height, it is likely that the plants will reach 125 cm by harvest time.
Girl Scout Cookies Feminized cannabis seeds by White Label grow into plants with strong, productive branching. The branches grow upwards rather than outwards, so indoor plants can grow quite close together.
The flowering patterns of White Label's GSC show strong influences from its indica and sativa genetics. The calyxes multiply rapidly and swell in size, forming strings that twist around each other to form spiky flower clusters. These continue to expand during the second half of the flowering period, running along the stem and branches to fill the gaps between the internodes. Finally, they form long, sticky colas with a delightfully effervescent appearance.
Thanks to its Afghan heritage, Girl Scout Cookies often takes on purple hues in the later flowering period. These are expressed in the dark purple leaves and the lavender hues at the base of the calyxes. At harvest time and after drying, the flowers of this variety display a combination of purple and green leaves, bright orange pistils and sparkling white-gold resin glands. This is a visual treat that complements its potency and flavor.
After harvest, the flowers of Label Girl Scout Cookies remain impressively large, due to the fat calyxes from which they are formed. Even when dry, the thick layer of GSC trichomes makes the buds appear sticky.
