Animal Crackers Strain Genetics
Also known as Animal Crackers, Animal Crackers cannabis seeds were created by blending two of the most popular cannabis strains around, GSC (OG Kush x Durban Poison) and Fire OG Bx3 (OG Kush x SVF OG). This rich family tree full of Cali classics is not messing around, with a lot of OG Kush genetics ensuring a euphoric buzz and a host of classic yet modern flavours.
Growers are treated well by the inherited traits of this marijuana strain, too, with this heavily backcrossed offering providing an excellent yield of dense, heavy buds with surprisingly little effort necessary in terms of gardening!
Animal Crackers Strain Terpene Profile
The primary terpenes at play in this Cannarado Genetics Girl Scout Cookies x Fire Og Bx3 strain will be recognisable to connoisseurs, with the earthy, herbal notes of myrcene very apparent on the exhale, giving that skunky, Afghan strain-like scent that we all know and love.
The Girl Scout Cookies parts of the heritage have a lot to do with the flavours and aromas, too, with that vanilla, cherry, citrus blend with a slightly nutty aftertaste on the inhale coming from the popular combination of limonene and caryophyllene, similar to Sunset Sherbet and other Cookies strains. Caryophyllene also provides a slight spicy tickle on the lips on exhale. It’s a familiar flavour profile, for sure, but one which has its own individual personality.
Animal Crackers Strain Effects
With a THC content that creeps up towards the 25% mark, expect a fast-acting, heavy-hitting high to come with this hybrid strain. While the Kush and Cookies traits provide that energetic, euphoric, and creative buzz, these cerebral effects are balanced by a hefty full-body relaxation.
This is an excellent strain for creativity, a perfect accompaniment to an evening of entertaining conversation and sporadic giggle fits around a few good friends. The final stage of the buzz chills both body and mind, preparing you for a beautiful night of sleep! Be aware that occasional reports of side effects, including dry eyes and dry mouth, have been reported, so go gentle with this one!
Animal Crackers Strain Medical Benefits
Animal Crackers is one of the most widely recommended medical cannabis strains amongst those in the know, and for good reason. The high THC content, in collaboration with caryophyllene and the other dominant terps, is said to provide intense pain relief, even for those living with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, however, with the medical marijuana properties provided by the cannabinoids and terpenes also said to work well in counteracting insomnia. Not only promoting sleepiness but also reducing stress and anxiety that can create issues with both falling and staying asleep.
How to Grow Animal Crackers Strain Seeds
For indoor growers of these feminised cannabis seeds, 9-10 weeks from germination should be all that’s necessary to be treated to a hearty harvest of golf ball-sized, frosty trichome-tipped buds decorated with a sea of orange pistils and some dark purple hues. The simplicity of the growing traits are very impressive, usually reserved for autoflower strains! SOG and SCROG growing methods should both work well for these marijuana seeds.
Outdoor growers of these feminised seeds from Cannarado Genetics (autoflowering and regular seeds not currently available) will want to either be in a very warm, Mediterranean type climate with hotter than average early winters or will want to utilise a greenhouse. Either way, expect sturdy, relatively tall plants that benefit from trellising and the occasional trim. As the October harvest time comes around, expect a high yield and a beautiful sweet and sour aroma to greet you!
