Origin: Blue Cookies (also known as Blueberry Cookies) is an Indica dominant hybrid. Some people may consider it like the prodigal son of two very famous and well-known parent strains. It comes from crossbreeding both the classic Blueberry strain and the legendary Girl Scout Cookies. Because of the hype surrounding this strain due to its rich genetics, Blue Cookies is now one of the best selling marijuana strains in the market today.
Blue Cookies was first developed and produced in the United States where it continues to be cultivated regularly by marijuana enthusiasts and advocates. Its landrace origins can be traced as far back to Thai, Mexican, and Colombian descent due to its parent strains.
Flowering Time: Blue Cookies has a fairly average flowering time that is not too long or too short. It takes around eight to ten weeks for this particular strain to fully mature and develop. Also, growers can expect to start their harvests of the Blue Cookies buds during the early days of October. This is the average timeframe for harvesting cannabis plants. Blue Cookies, despite being an Indica dominant strain, can reach a medium height with its plant structure. It grows up to around six to ten feet, depending on whether it is grown indoors or outdoors. Additionally, long and finger-like leaves sprout from the plant with light re pistils lining through each one of them.
As for its yield, Blue Cookies can really produce a bountiful harvest from your marijuana garden. When cultivated properly, yields for this strain can reach a high yield of up to 900 grams per plant if grown outdoors. Blue Cookies produces buds that are thick and heavy. They are popcorn sized nugs that grow on top of each cola. These buds, like its parent strain Blueberry, display a bright purple and blue shade, making it a sort of eye candy to look at. White and silver-like trichomes also surround the buds. Its sticky resin gives the Blue Cookies a waxy and shiny finish.
Medical Properties: Blue Cookies is known to treat both physical and mental illnesses. Because it is a hybrid with fairly strong influences of both Sativa and Indica, Blue Cookies works well with treating a number of medical cases. The Indica properties of this strain can help enhance a person’s focus and heighten their senses. While this may seem great for recreational purposes, it also naturally helps patients who are experiencing ADHD. Also, the Indica trait of helping people calm down and relax is great for relieving levels of pain in both the body and mind. Chronic pains and headaches are said to be some of the few conditions that can be treated with Blue Cookies. With enough hits, this may even cause drowsiness and sleepiness in users who are experiencing sleeping disorders.
Furthermore, the Sativa properties of Blue Cookies may also have a significant impact on someone’s health. The uplifting and happy moods that you get from Blue Cookies can treat a person suffering from depression, anxiety, and high levels of stress.
THC and CBD Percentage: Many marijuana seed breeders are developing their own versions of Blue Cookies. Because of this, the range of THC levels that this strain contains may vary quite a bit. Some versions state that this strain contains a THC level of 18%. But the general average that people measure this strain comes in at around 20% to 25%. As you can see, it is a fairly potent strain that has an above-average THC level.
On the other hand, the CBD level of Blue Cookies can be measured at 0.1%. But despite having an extremely low CBD level, Blue Cookies still works well as a medical strain because of the balanced effects that it provides.
Common Effects: As stated earlier, the Blue Cookies strain offers a great balance of both physical and cerebral effects due to the significant influences of both Indica and Sativa properties. It starts off in the head, giving it a trippy and mind-altering rush that will last for minutes. Afterward, this cerebral hit slowly turns into a body buzz that makes its way all the down to your toes. The combination of both effects makes this strain perfect to use at any time of the day. Whether you plan on crashing into your couch or filling up your day with various activities, this strain will adjust to the situation.
The smell of its buds is somewhat fruity and herbal, another combination that is due to the mixture of its parent strains. You are welcomed with sweet and citrus scents that blend well with a musky, pungent note. As for the taste, the Blueberry influence is strong as your first hits will cover your mouth with strong flavors of berries.
Blue Cookies is a strain that any marijuana smoker will love to try. It gives users the best of both Indica and Sativa strains, making it immensely popular among both beginners and experienced smokers alike. However, keep in mind that the potent buds and high THC levels may be too strong for newbies. Always be careful about the environment that you are getting high in. Happy smoking!
