Girl Scout Cookies are one of the best new strains to come out of the California Bay Area. It was bred from two strains that were already widely popular – F1 Durban Poison and OG Kush. F1 Durban Poison is a sativa hybrid, while OG Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid. This mix is what provides the Girl Scout Cookies Strain with their versatile qualities and wide appeal. Sativa strains deliver a “head high”, while Indica strains provide a “body high”. Girl Scout Cookies provide the best of both worlds with intellectual stimulation and physical relaxation.
