Strain review: Cookies and Cream
Hey! Guess what. We’re back with a review of another of Prohibition’s badass premium strains, and you should be stoked cause this is a good one.
This week, we’re going to be chatting with you about Cookies and Cream, a strain of weed that smells and tastes like vanilla. And that alone, my friends, is baller af. But when you add in the fact that this strain is super potent and takes you on a killer (yet relaxed) journey to the inner depths of your mind, that makes it a real winner.
So, what is Cookies and Cream, you ask? Well, it’s a hybrid strain created by crossing Starfighter and GSC (the weed strain formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies), which is one of my very favorite strains. The Cookies and Cream flower that Prohibition has dreamed up contains 21.87 percent THC, so ... a pretty significant amount.
I loaded a bowl late in the evening last week, and I was immediately hit with the sweetest taste and smell. There’s a bit of vanilla in there, a bit of sugary candy, and, of course, the taste of good ol’ fashioned herb. I dug it.
I smoked the bowl alone, as I’ve become greedy as hell with these top-notch strains, and then proceeded to park my ass in front of Schitt’s Creek. (Side note: if you aren’t watching this, you’re a punk. Get on it.) It took only a few minutes for my body to start feeling heavy and relaxed, and for the happy waves of a body high to kick through. My legs felt like they were covered in a tiny, warm ocean, with the water lapping onto my skin in soft, rhythmic waves. (Shut up. It was awesome.) Life was super and super relaxed.
In fact, it took a while for me to realize my mouth was beyond dry – we’re talking Sahara levels of cottonmouth – because I was so chill. Once I did, though ... holy liquids, Batman. I was drinking EVERYTHING. So, be aware, friends. Get thee some Cookies and Cream, but get thee a glass of water first. You’ll be so hydrated by the end of it!
Given the body high I was rockin’, I fully expected this strain to act more like an indica, but it was not to be. I waited for that heavy, sleepy feeling to overtake my eyes, but it didn’t come. The body high just continued to grace me with its presence instead.
I also didn’t get the munchies like I generally do with strains that give me a body high. I was thirsty as hell but not hungry, so if you’re looking for some bud that will force you to drink your eight 8-ounce glasses of water but WON’T make you snarf an entire package of Double-Stuf Oreos, this might be your jam.
Anyway, I was awake and chillin’ with a rad high for the next couple of hours, despite my old ass generally falling asleep well before the late hour in which I finally passed out. Go figure.
This strain is – for me – a pretty darn good hybrid. It sure seems to split the sativa and indica properties right down the middle – body high, awake and SUPER amused with my surroundings – which is a rare beast. Add in the fact that it tastes like candy and you have yourself a real winner, folks. Now get some and smoke it with Schitt’s Creek or we can no longer be friends. Please and thanks.
