Animal Cookies, sometimes also called Animal Crackers, is a relatively recent indica blend. It’s got some famous genetics, coming from a cross between the Fire OG and the award-winning Girl Scout Cookies. The GSC, a strain that a lot of people have come to know and love, has a rich, smooth black cherry flavor that has won it the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in 2013.
Animal Cookies was bred by the Canada based seed bank BC Bud Depot, when the breeder attempted to improve upon the already popular GSC strain. In terms of growth, the breeder claims that Animal Cookies yields even better than its progenitor GSC. As per the cannabis testing lab Analytical 360, Animal Cookies has an average THC content of 18-27%. This gives it an intense, almost narcotic effect, which can help provide pain relief, relaxation, and sleep.
Animal Cookies has been known to aid people suffering from mild or chronic nerve based pain. There are multiple other forms of medical marijuana, which have worked wonders on many chronic conditions.
The Animal Cookies bud has a distinct appearance – it’s often compared to medium-sized popcorn-shaped buds, surrounded by greenish-yellow leaves. This is enveloped by orange stigma and lots of fuzzy, sticky white trichomes. When broken, Animal Cookies’ colorful flowers give hints of pine and pepper.
