Normally, Trulieve will make an announcement via email or text message whenever they release a new flower strain. That was not the case with Girl Scout Cookies (or GSC): I just happened to check Trulieve’s flower page on the morning of 03.01.2019; to my surprise, GSC had been “snuck” in there toward the middle of the page. As this strain has gotten a lot of attention in the past few years, I was eager to finally get to try it.
I’ll go ahead and tell you guys now: This strain is one of my absolute favorites. To this point, I haven’t really found any hybrid strains where the effects just stood out as being really good. That changed once I tried GSC, and I hope Trulieve will keep this one around (and bring down the price!)
Girl Scout Cookies (Hybrid – 60/40 Indica-dominant)
Batch/Harvest Number: FFOBTRUJRL000001 (that’s an “O” at the beginning and zeroes at the end)
661.5 mg THC/3.5g
0.0 mg CBD/3.5g
20.1% Total Cannabinoids
The quality of curing has been hit or miss in recent batches of TruFlower. However, there seems to be a trend toward better curing, as Girl Scout Cookies is right about where it should be in moisture content. GSC buds are mostly compromised of medium to darker green hues, with a few spots of lighter green and yellow. There’s also a couple of very small flecks of purple in some of the mugs as well; all of this is covered by amber pistils and an abundance of sparkling white trichomes. This batch of flower seemed to be compromised of a larger number of small, dense buds; most other batches have contained larger buds that seemed to “spread out” when released from their original container. This was a good cure, and hopefully is a sign that Trulieve is becoming more consistent with there quality of their curing.

Oh man. Girl Scout Cookies has to have one of the most captivating smells of any flower strain I’ve tried up to this point. There’s definitely a certain herbal/earthy smell that immediately hits your nose when you open the glass jar, all complemented by a floral sweetness that I can’t seem to find the words to describe. I can definitely see where the strain’s name comes from; whether it be cookie batter, fresh cookies, or the “aftermath of cookie baking” as one Reddit user put it, Girl Scout Cookies does have a smell reminiscent of some sort of cookie or cookie paraphernalia. I find this strain to be especially sweet tasting when vaporized and/or smoked, especially when smoked in a joint. When vaporized in my Flowermate, GSC tasted very close to a fresh batch of sugar cookies. No matter how you choose to consume this strain, you will most likely really enjoy the taste.
Smell/Taste Rating: 4.30/5.00
Girl Scout Cookies receives widespread critical acclaim, and after trying it, I see why. My first method of consuming was rolling a 0.5-0.7g joint, because of no other reason than GSC seemed like a really good strain to roll into a joint. The effects came on slowly and pleasantly, evoking a warm sensation throughout the body while relaxing the mind. The “come-up” was never too intense or overwhelming, and about halfway through the joint, I found myself in an extremely relaxed euphoria. Girl Scout Cookies reminds me of some of my first great experiences with cannabis, all the way to the fact that I got the extreme munchies from it. This is a great strain, and I can see it being useful for treating a host of medical conditions. My body and mind both remained relaxed for the duration of the effects, which seemed to last longer than average for flower.
After consuming a few more vaped (and smoked) bowls of GSC later that night, the indica effects really began to set it, and I found myself really sleepy. From my experience, Girl Scout Cookies can be good for use at nay time of the day. If you want it to give you an extra boost throughout the day, take it in lighter doses. If you’re looking for relaxation and sleep at the end of the day, take it in higher does.
Possibly good for treating:
- Moderate aches and pains
- Moderate nausea/gastrointestinal issues
- General Relaxation
- Insomnia (especially in higher doses)
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Every body is different, and every body reacts different to various medications.
Effects Rating: 4.40/5.00
Overall Rating: 4.23/5.00
Overall, I would best describe Girl Scout Cookies as an “outstanding” strain.
The sole negative factor of this product is that it currently costs $55/eighth. Like most all of the prices in the Florida medical cannabis industry, this is highway robbery, and is a perfect example of why vertical integration of Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers in Florida needs to come to an end – soon.
Other than that, this strain absolutely impressed me; it certainly lived up to the hype. I will definitely be buying it in the future, but I may have to wait for those prices to come down first. Trulieve has offered strains at $45/eighth, and I feel that even that would be easier to deal with.
Definitely give Girl Scout Cookies flower a try, especially if there’s a sale or you have a discount. I think most people will really enjoy this strain.
