Monster Cookies Left Coast Guide
Monster Cookies, also known as Cookie Monster, is a potent indica-dominant hybrid that combines the best traits of two legendary strains: Girl Scout Cookies and Granddaddy Purple. This strain gets its name from its monstrous buds, which are dense, colorful, and covered in resin. This pure indica cultivar is known for its relaxing and euphoric effects, as well as its complex and fruity flavor. In this article, we explore the origins, effects, and benefits of Monster Cookies, and why it is a favorite among Left Coast connoisseurs.
ORIGINS AND GENETICS
The Monster Cookies marijuana strain is one of the most sought-after and exclusive cannabis strains in the market. Monster Cookies is a clone-only hybrid strain, meaning that it can only be propagated from cuttings of the original plants. This strain is a cross between the widely popular Girl Scout Cookies and the flavorful and eye-catching Granddaddy Purple. This combination results in a strain that inherits the best qualities of both parents, such as high potency, balanced effects, and delicious taste.
Monster Cookies was created by an unknown breeder, who wanted to create a strain that would satisfy both indica and sativa lovers. Monster Cookies has a high THC content, ranging from 10% to 15%, and a low CBD content, making it ideal for recreational and medical users alike. Monster Cookies has won several awards, and has gained a loyal fan base among cannabis enthusiasts.
WHAT IS AN INDICA-DOMINANT HYBRID CANNABIS STRAIN?
Indica-dominant hybrids, such as Monster Cookies, are cannabis strains that have more indica than sativa genetics. Indica strains are known for their relaxing, sedating, and pain-relieving effects, as well as their short and bushy appearance. Sativa strains are known for their uplifting, energizing, and creative effects, as well as their tall and slender appearance. Hybrid strains are created by crossing different varieties of cannabis, in order to create new strains with unique characteristics and effects. Indica-dominant hybrids tend to have more of the physical and mental effects of indica strains, but may also have some of the cerebral and mood-enhancing effects of sativa strains.
DOES MONSTER COOKIES HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF THCV?
Monster Cookies contains moderate levels of THCV, as strains with high levels of THCV usually have some landrace Sativa genetics. Monster Cookies is a cross between the popular Girl Scout Cookies and Granddaddy Purple strains, both of which have some Sativa influence. Monster Cookies typically has a THCV concentration of around 0.5%, which is higher than most indica-dominant strains. Monster Cookies is reported by some consumers to offer the relaxing and euphoric effects often associated with higher-THCV cultivars.
