Cookies Kush Strain Review
Barney’s Farm has created a gem that is loved by most users in the world. Coming from an impeccable heritage, Cookies Kush is a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and an OG Kush phenotype. The result is a robust, high yielding, Indica dominant offspring that also boast of the same euphoric high of its lineage.
The high amount of THC that Cookies Kush packs make it a heavy-hitting strain. It was also one of the reasons for its bagging the top honors as the best coffee shop strain in the High Times 2014 Cannabis Cup.
And one of the things to note about this herb is that a user may have a hard time discerning whether it’s the Sativa or Indica’s turn to kick in. Veterans describe the feeling as confusing but in a good way. In a sense, that is what makes Cookies Kush unique in that the transition is seamless.
As they say, be prepared for an instant stone as the psychedelic high can be full and long-lasting. To have a memorable experience, put that hammock on the tree and let this amazing hybrid take you on for a dreamy swing.

Odor and Flavors
If freshly baked cookies smell fantastic, then the unique aroma of Cookies Kush should prove to be a delight. It has a sweet and earthy smell with some hints of apple and lime. Upon combustion, its scent becomes pungent with a fruity mix keeping the senses refreshed.
It can be difficult at times to figure out its flavor. For example, its taste reminds some people of apple cinnamon. Others are more likely to detect its sweet note with a hint of lime and mint.
Overall, Cookies Kush is not only pleasant enough, but its smoke is equally fantastic.
Cookies Kush is by no means a lame duck when it comes to potency. While it is above average, overindulging can bring out the beast inside of it. In other words, the mental stimulation may become overbearing and can lead to confused thoughts.
Used in moderation, it is a wonderful strain that delivers a warm euphoric buzz. In most cases, it helps users clear the mind and focus on productivity.
It takes time for the Indica traits to manifest. Once it creeps into the body, most people tend to feel lazy as relaxation sweeps in. In many cases too, the transition is so subtle and seamless. Instead of leaving users with a hazy mind or having a dreamy cerebral buzz while in deep relaxation, Cookies Kush keeps the mind alert.
Cookies Kush is one of those strain that one must consume in little quantities first. That is because too much use can lead to undesirable effects. One must know his or her limits before using a tad bit more.
As this potent herb is expected to cause the drying of the eyes and mouth, one must drink water during the smoke to lessen this discomfort. In rare occasions, users tend to feel overly anxious and dizzy. Some also report experiencing mild paranoia, but this goes away after a little while.
