About Monster Cookies
Monster Cookies is an indica-dominant hybrid that builds on some strong and flavorful genetics. This strain is a cross between the omnipresent Girl Scout Cookies and the flavorful and eye-catching Granddaddy Purple. This background gives the flowers a relaxing high and a complex, fruity taste.
This strain is distinguished by medium-sized nugs that hold their shape thanks to a dense indica-type bud structure. The sticky and tightly-coiled leaves are predominantly forest green, but are accentuated by deep blue and purple hues — these vibrant colors are the result of pigments called anthocyanins being stimulated by cold temperatures in the growing process. Short-talked white trichomes give the bright buds a frosty overlay; they also make this a difficult strain to break up by hand. Monster Cookies has a mostly berry and grape-tinged flavor profile, much like parent strain Granddaddy Purple. Breaking up or burning the buds gives off more of a spicy, incense-like quality, compliments of the OG Kush in this strain’s lineage. Cured properly, it has a smooth, easy smoke that tastes dank and sweet on the exhale. It’s a highly pungent strain, so discreet smokers should take necessary precautions.
Monster Cookies has a high that creeps up on the user, slowly conferring a heavy body stone. The temptation to melt into the nearest possible couch may prove overwhelming for many. While there may be some cerebral stimulation, the mental qualities of this strain mostly arise from its deep physical relaxation. Smokers will feel fully at ease — content to remain in one place, but uplifted enough to be social and chatty. Because of these trippy, dreamy qualities, Monster Cookies is probably not the best choice for those looking to accomplish work or finish errands. Because of this strain’s potency, cannabis newcomers should moderate their initial dosage and then scale up if necessary. Its almost narcotic effects gives Monster Cookies strong analgesic effects for medical cannabis patients. It can be an effective way to relieve aches and pains — both incidental from injury or soreness and chronic from conditions like fibromyalgia. It has also been said to soothe headaches and migraines and, in large enough doses, can help users with insomnia to find deep, lasting sleep.
