GMO Cookies Strain Genetics
An award-winning, highly potent, indica-dominant hybrid strain in its own right, GMO Cookies aka Garlic Cookies is the child of two cannabis cup winners and seed bank favourites, Chemdog and Girl Scout Cookies. Such a legendary lineage sets the bar high, but this high THC level marijuana strain is more than capable of rising to the challenge.
Indica heavy means compact plants and dense buds, and that’s what you get with GMO Cookies, which inherits a diesel-like aroma from the Chemdog in its genetic background.
GMO Cookies Strain Terpene Profile
The terpene profile of GMO Cookies helps to explain why the scents and flavours of this cannabis strain stand out so much amongst others.
The fruity citrus tang to the flavour on inhaling appears to have been handed down from Girl Scout Cookies and comes from an abundance of limonene, one of the most dominant terpenes found in this hybrid strain.
Furthermore, it is thought that the Chemdog genetics in this strain are responsible for the spicier, petrol-tinged overtones to the scent, and that is largely caused by the presence of caryophyllene. Myrcene also plays its part here, which adds a dose of classic skunk strains to the aroma and taste, particularly on the exhale.
GMO Cookies Strain Effects
A combination of relaxation and euphoria can be expected to kick in remarkably quickly with the GMO Cookies strain, reminiscent of the Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush in its lineage. Not only are the effects fast-acting here, but they are also long-lasting, which is a double whammy we can all appreciate.
You won’t be overly sedated by the high here, but the effects of this indica-dominant marijuana strain will certainly make relaxation your cannabis partner in crime. Best enjoyed later in the day, GMO Cookies is ideal for an evening of chilled conversation with friends or loved ones.

How to Grow GMO Cookies Strain Seeds
