Effects & Usage



Thin Mint (also known as Thin Mint Cookies and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies) is an evenly balanced hybrid born from the union of Durban Poison and OG Kush. With a THC content ranging from 18-24%, Thin Mint offers users a potent and well-rounded experience entailing a euphoric head high, accompanied by a soothing body relaxation. The strain is also loved for its delightful taste, reminiscent of a mint chocolate treat.


Thin Mint is a blissful strain that will have you feeling good within minutes of consumption. It starts with a cerebral uplift, boosting your mood and mental clarity. As a result, you will be focused, inspired and clear-headed, which can help you power through long and challenging tasks.

Soon after the mental effects kick in, your body becomes progressively more relaxed. This combination will leave you in a mellow state that keeps you peaceful yet alert, clearing your mind of negativity. The euphoric vibes stay with you for several hours, long after the high wears off, making this strain unique. You can utilise this good mood in various settings, and you will enjoy sharing it with your friends and loved ones for heartfelt conversations and loads of enjoyment.

If you find Thin Mint’s balanced profile appealing, you might also enjoy strains like Blue Dream or Wedding Cake.


The Thin Mint strain offers various medical benefits thanks to its unique combination of cannabinoids and terpenes. For example, the analgesic humulene works together with anti-inflammatory caryophyllene and the soothing cannabinoids CBG (at 2%) and CBD (at 1%) to provide stress relief and body relaxation. This can help with chronic pain, migraines, muscle spasms, and insomnia. In addition, the uplifting properties of Thin Mint, bolstered by limonene, will minimise the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Side effects

As with most cannabis varieties, Thin Mint can cause dry eyes, cottonmouth, and mild dizziness. Although the strain is generally well-tolerated, some users may experience slight anxiety or paranoia, particularly when consumed in high doses. Therefore, start with a low dose and gradually increase consumption if necessary to find the optimal amount for your needs.

Taste & Smell


Thin Mint entices users with its unique and captivating sensory profile that reflects its name well. Its buds offer a delightful mix of sweet and minty aromas with subtle hints of spicy and herbal undertones. Upon consumption, the palate is treated to a mint chocolate cookie flavour with herbal hints of spice and nuttiness that leaves behind a minty aftertaste. The smoke’s scent is very pungent – keep that in mind if you want to stay discrete.

Thin Mint’s dense, trichome-rich buds feature vibrant shades of green and purple hinges interwoven with orange pistils, rounding off the entire experience.

Thin Mint is a prized phenotype of the famous Girl Scout Cookies strain. It has inherited the best of both worlds – the invigorating and cerebral effects of its Sativa parent Durban Poison and the soothing and relaxing properties of its Indica parent, OG Kush. Like its famous namesake sweet treat, the Thin Mint Cookies strain offers a remarkable experience that pleases the senses and relaxes the soul.

Growing conditions

Thin Mint Cookies can grow indoors as well as outdoors. However, regardless of the environment, it requires extra nutrient supplementation to thrive. Organic tea can be a cost-effective and easy method to provide your plant with the necessary nourishment. The plant is resistant to common moulds and mildew, but remember to keep the environment dry and warm to ensure it thrives.

The typical flowering period takes about 9 to 10 weeks, and you can expect moderate yields of around 300 grams per square metre indoors and 350 grams per plant outdoors.
