A journey with Animal Cookies is not merely recreational; it can also relieve many struggles. This strain is an effective remedy to all kinds of stress and tension, whether mental or physical. The feeling of blissful uplift can be especially effective in reducing symptoms of depression and other mood disorders.
With its high caryophyllene content, the strain also provides analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits to combat pain of various kinds, such as joint pains, backaches, headaches and muscle spasms. Used a couple of hours before sleeping, it can be an excellent tool for insomnia, as the strain will eventually promote deep relaxation, thanks to the calming myrcene.
Animal Cookies may cause common cannabis side effects, such as dry mouth and red eyes. Given its delicious taste and high THC content, it may be easy to overconsume this strain, so users should be cautious. Animal Cookies may cause some dizziness, paranoia, or increased anxiety when consumed in large amounts or by sensitive users. As with any strain, using it responsibly and starting with a low dose is essential.
Taste & Smell
Animal Cookies is a feast to all the senses, starting with a beautiful appearance. The densely packed, tight buds and leaves boast a deep colour palette with yellow, green and purple hues, adorned with vibrant orange pistils and a generous cover of cloudy trichomes. The strain’s aroma is an exciting mix of sweet and sour scents with skunky, earthy notes, finished with a dash of vanilla. The sweet, creamy vanilla is exactly what you taste as you smoke the bud up – with a hint of citrus and earthy undertones yet again, making for a cookie-like treat.
The lineage of Animal Cookies is as rich and profound as its flavour profile. The Canadian BC Bud Depot bred this beautiful hybrid from two remarkable parents: a mighty Fire OG and the legendary, multi-award-winning Girl Scout Cookies. The combination of their unique characteristics led to a strain providing an experience that transcends the ordinary and will satisfy even the most picky connoisseurs.
Growing Animal Cookies is challenging and should best be left to experienced cultivators.
Due to the plant’s high-maintenance nature, it thrives best in controlled indoor conditions, where temperature and humidity can be carefully managed. Proper ventilation in the growing area is essential for two reasons: Animal Cookies can be sensitive to mould and mildew, and they also emit a pungent aroma during the whole vegetative stage. Moreover, this hybrid will require regular trimming of the broad leaves on the top to ensure that the lower-laying buds can get optimal sunshine and airflow.
The plant typically takes 9-10 weeks to flower, yielding around 300 grams per square metre indoors and 350-370 grams per outdoor plant.
