Good Hoots: Top Leaf Girl Scout Cookies
Good Hoots is the section of our Blog where we take a closer look at some of our most requested and top selling cannabis products here at Good Roots.
Today we look at a stoner fan favourite, and one we were all excited to get our hands on here at Good Roots: Girl Scout Cookies from Top Leaf! Although hearing Girl Scout Cookies and cannabis may make one think of this news story about a certain clever young girl, GSC is actually a real strain...and word is, it's real good!
Back in Dec 2019, Sundial launched their new label Top Leaf with an eye on the premium market and for putting out top quality cannabis for the more discerning consumer. Claiming to be 'created by and for cannabis enthusiasts and connoisseurs', these Top Leaf buds are small batch grown by master growers in purpose built rooms at Sundial's main facility in Olds, AB.
With other flavour packed strains available such as Strawberry Cream, Oregon Golden Goat, and Florida Lemons, Top Leaf is exploring new fun and fruity strains as well as focusing on some of the classics such as our strain of choice today, Girl Scout Cookies.
Girl Scout Cookies
Born in California and hailing from the growing collective known as Cookie Fam (which includes the rapper Berner), Girl Scout Cookies shot to prominence in the early 2010's and has been much sought after ever since.
The name of this strain comes from its delicious and unique scent. You'll catch whiffs of ginger, spice, mint, and lemon coming off the dark green and purple coloured buds along with a spicy, yet often minty flavour once combusted. This smell is said to be reminiscent of the famous Girl Scout Cookies that are often sold door to door.
GSC gets its good looks and great taste from its parents, the ever-present indica OG Kush from Florida and the potent sativa Durban Poison which originated down in South Africa and which provides a lively, uplifting effect to this mainly indica-dominant hybrid.
Caryophyllene, Myrcene, & Humulene team up to provide the array of flavours and effects you will experience with GSC, with the Humulene giving that wonderful baked gingery taste, and the Caryophyllene adding that spicy edge. These two terpenes are said to provide extra benefits when found together.
Girl Scout Cookies has won multiple Cannabis Cup awards over the years, a testament to its genetics and overall quality. This one is always in high demand.
Pro Munchie Tip: Make sure you have a box of Girl Scout Cookies around to go with your Girl Scout Cookies!
