Uses

This strain is not just a fun ride but also a dependable ally for users struggling with mental health conditions. Thanks to its high limonene content, it is a powerful mood-boosting and energising remedy that removes negativity and dark moods, providing users with motivation. As such, it may relieve the symptoms of depression, anxiety, as well as PTSD and ADHD.

Its benefits are not only limited to the mental sphere – it also has an anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving action enhanced by caryophyllene and humulene. Therefore, it can reduce inflammation-caused pains, often appearing in chronic pain conditions, muscle spasms or arthritis.

Side effects

Tropicana Cookies comes with the usual side effects of weed, such as eye and mouth dehydration. However, overconsumption has the potential to lead to some dizziness, as well as slight paranoia and anxiety. Practising responsible consumption is essential to minimise the risk of these occurring. Start with a single puff, gradually increasing the dosage as necessary.

Smoking it too late in the evening may result in sleepless nights, so plan your session on time.

Taste & Smell

Cookies

The aesthetic appeal of Tropicana Cookies is undeniable. Clusters of beautiful, heart-shaped buds showcase a vibrant blend of purple and light green hues. Fiery orange pistils and a generous trichome coating further complement the looks.

Much like the name suggests, the taste and smell of the strain are a tropical spectacle. The fragrance has an earthy base layered with a potent citrusy aroma, further enhanced by a hint of spicy, piney notes.

Tangy orange dominates the strain’s flavour on the inhale, leaving behind a sweet cookie undertone on the exhale, making for a super delicious smoke reminiscent of candy.

Sativa

Origins

Born out of a combination of the legendary GSC and Tangie, Tropicana Cookies carries forward the celebrated reputation of the cookie lineage. The strain was bred by Oni Seed Company – an American seed bank known for creating potent, exciting flavoursome strains – a promise entirely fulfilled. Quickly after its release, Tropicana Cookies got the recognition it deserved, scoring the Best Sativa award at the 2019 Michigan Cannabis Cup.

Growing conditions

This flexible plant is resilient, thriving both indoors and outdoors, as long as it is provided with a semi-humid, warm sunny climate. However, ensure sufficient space – Tropicana Cookies tends to shoot up high. Early pruning and topping practices are advised, as they will result in more abundant colas and a significant increase in the final yield. It is also best to remove the lower fan leaves to avoid mildew and pest issues.

Tropicana Cookies takes 9-10 weeks to flower, and you can expect a harvest of 400-450 grams per square metre indoors and over 500 grams per plant outdoors.
