The cannabis strain Animal Cookies is an indica dominant hybrid whose claim to fame is its potent effects due to its parent strains. A potent strain with some famous genetics, Animal Cookies — sometimes also known as Animal Crackers — is a relatively recent indica hybrid. Bred by Canadian seed bank BC Bud Depot, it is a cross between perennial favorite Girl Scout Cookies and indica hybrid Fire OG. We’ve receivers Fire OG before on the site, so it’s exciting to see the spawn of a top-ranking hybrid favorite. The Animal Cookies strain definitely doesn’t disappoint. Even consumers with a higher tolerance will fall in love with the Animal Cookies strain.
FRAGRANCE & COSTS
True to its name, Animal Cookies has a sweet, sour aroma with heavy full-body effects that will impress any veteran consumer. The smell is sweet, earthy, and pungent. This potent medicine might be overkill for mild symptoms, but its ability to obliterate severe pain and insomnia is unprecedented. Animal Cookies isn’t too expensive, ranging anywhere from $20-$50, depending on the amount and where you’re procuring it from. Here in LA, you can find Animal Cookies from various retailers like Modern Buds, The High Note, GetWeedLA, MedMen, and more. This strain is most popular in LA, Detroit, Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, and more!
Appearance wise, Animal Cookies is a medium to tall plant when fully grown, with dense, popcorn-shaped buds. Its large fan leaves are dark green with tips that in some varieties turn purple. A very generous coating of sticky, white and cloudy colored trichomes cover the entire plant come harvest time, which are complemented by the bright orange pistils growing around the plant’s leaves.
EFFECTS & MEDICAL USES
The Animal Cookies marijuana strain is said to make consumers feel sleepy, relaxed, uplifted, euphoric, and happy. Some of the medical uses include stress, lack of appetite, pain, depression, and insomnia. A few of the mainly noted negatives are unsurprisingly dry mouth and paranoia, along with dry eyes. If you’re a naturally paranoid individual, it’s best to consume Animal Cookies in smaller doses to ensure you don’t exacerbate the situation. Know your limits like with any other strain. For female consumers, the Animal Cookies strain is said to greatly relieve menstrual cramps.
GROWING INFO + GENERAL INFO
The flowering time of the Animal Cookies strain is said to be 7-9 weeks with a yield of 1-3 ounces per square foot. The growing difficulty is moderate with a potential growth height of fewer than 78 inches. This plant grows quite tall and it is recommended that indoor growers of this plant bend and trim the stems and branches to encourage lateral growth. It is important to trim any large fan leaves growing at the top of the plant to ensure that the lower branches and flowering nodes receive enough light. This will also help promote better airflow and circulation as well as providing its buds with more energy to help them flourish and grow.
Analytical 360, a cannabis analysis lab, has recorded THC levels of between 18% and a staggering 27% when testing Animal Cookies samples. While its CBD levels average at around 1.0%, some cultivators have claimed that they have recorded CBD levels of up to 4.0% in their Animal Cookies plants.
Animal Cookies is a pretty great hybrid strain that lives up to expectations. I wouldn’t recommend this strain to novice consumers, however, veterans will have no issues with the Animal Cookies strain. The main negative side effect associated with Animal Cookies is that it results in dry mouth. The second highest reported negative side effect was dry eyes.
