About Blue Cookies
Blue Cookies is a slightly indica-leaning hybrid that offers a great balance of mental and physical effects. Established staple hybrids Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry unite to yield this tasty flower with a focused and clearheaded but very relaxed high. Said to be a potent smoke even for cannabis veterans, Blue Cookies has a THC composition that ranges from 20% to an impressive 25%. Note that there is a different (albeit similar) strain called Blue Cookies on the market that is a distinct phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies itself rather than a cross between GSC and Blueberry.
Blue Cookies’ buds are big and chunky with a dense structure more typical of indica varieties. The leaves clump together in slightly long, conical shapes that are threaded through with red to fiery orange pistils. Like parent strain Blueberry, Blue Cookies is marked by particularly colorful flowers: they appear spring green and more often than not are flecked with blue and purple hues. These latter colors emerge when high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by cold temperatures in the growing process. Cloudy trichomes cover the already-colorful leaves, giving them a silvery sheen. The high resin content also makes Blue Cookies a hard strain to break up for pipes or joints without the use of a grinder. Blue Cookies has bold flavors to match its visual appeal. Users will notice a simultaneously fruity and dank smell from the cured buds that feels like a combination of Blueberry’s berry and GSC’s earthy profiles. Breaking or burning the flowers brings out a rich smell that is more reminiscent of leather. The smoke hits very smoothly and carries a slight taste of cherry with some skunk on the exhale. Interestingly, despite its purple coloration, Blue Cookies does not have a detectable grape flavor — this is because the same anthocyanin pigments that dictate the strain’s color do not have a corresponding effect on its taste.
As with many evenly-balanced hybrids, Blue Cookies takes hold first in the head, with a quick and possibly disorienting rush. This initial buzz soon spreads throughout the body just as smokers notice a change in perception of their surroundings. This merging of head and body high is stimulating but not overwhelming, keeping users grounded and able to bend the experience to fit their surroundings. Blue Cookies is as enjoyable out on a walk or a hike as it is for a night on the couch. This strain’s stimulation of both brain and both also makes it great for activities that involve both — it can be a good exercise aid and even an aphrodisiac. Similarly, Blue Cookies has value as a medical treatment for both physical and psychological afflictions. Its sense of lucidity and focus can be great for patients with attention deficit disorders. It can also have powerful effects on depressed or anxious mood, providing anything from mellow contentment to euphoria. Somatic relaxation makes Blue Cookies a good analgesic treatment for aches, pains, and nausea. In high enough concentrations, this can help insomniacs find deep and restful sleep.
Despite its potent and well-rounded high, authenticated seeds of Blue Cookies can be hard to come by. Prospective growers may need to obtain clippings from mature plants of the strain in order to grow healthy clones. Once procured, Blue Cookies can be grown indoors or outdoors, although outdoor growing calls for a moderate to warm climate with consistent daytime temperatures in the 70 to 74 degree Fahrenheit range. Indoor growing conditions can be more deliberately controlled, and the short to medium-height plants can take well to limited spaces — especially if growers do some limited bending and pruning early in the vegetative stage. Growers should also regularly trim away the broad fan leaves that grow at the top of plants in order to let light and air reach the lower flowering nodes. Bringing out this strain’s signature colors requires “shocking” the plant by exposing it to some colder than average temperatures just before flowering begins. Blue Cookies flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors, at which point growers may need to provide artificial supports like wooden dowels to keep the thick buds from weighing down branches. This strain offers an average yield of flowers.
If you can come by it, Blue Cookies offers a great taste and a crowd-pleasing, well-balanced high. Its potency makes it enjoyable for newbies and experienced cannabis users alike. As long as it’s consumed in moderation, this strain’s versatile make it appropriate for both daytime and nighttime enjoyment.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 90% Indica / 10% Sativa
THC: 25% – 28%, CBD: 2%
There is some dispute over the true parents of this indica-dominant award winner: Some sources claim they’re F1Durb (an indica-dominant descendant of Durban Poison) and Florida OG (a little known indica). Others say they’re Blueberry and Girl Scout Cookies. Whatever its origins, Blue Cookies has a sativa/indica ratio of between 10:90 and 30:70. That makes for a potent body buzz, although the sativa genes also provide an energized cerebral effect.

Blue Cookies won the Cannabis Cup in the medical hybrid category based largely on its whopping THC content, measured at more than 28%. The record holder is still less than 30%, which means this strain is one of the strongest on the market. CBD, on the other hand, makes up less than 2% of this plant’s cannabinoid content, so Blue Cookies shouldn’t be used as an exclusive treatment for seizures or other health problems that respond to CBD. As the name suggests, this strain’s dense nugs have a dark bluish tint, as well as a thick layer of resinous crystals on the surface.
