Blue Cookies Strain Review by Gentlemantoker 2023

Today the Gentleman will be reviewing the famous Blue Cookies strain from a local DC recreational dispensary. This Indica-dominant hybrid is a cross between two legendary strains: Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry. If you’re looking for a high-potency strain, Blue Cookies packs a whopping 28% THC with the focal terpene being Beta Caryophyllene, which focuses on deep body relaxation and is known to reduce inflammation.

In this article, I share my experience smoking the Blue Cookies Strain and talk about the overall entourage effect, cannabinoid breakdown, flavors, aromas, and the terpenes I felt. Let’s dive in!

Key Takeaways on Blue Cookies

  • Blue Cookies hits hard to the head and then transitions into a very relaxed body and muscle state.
  • The primary terpene in Blue Cookies  is Beta Caryophyllene which is known to promote relaxation to the body.
  • The second primary terpene in Blue Cookies is humulene which is proven to alleviate pain in muscles and aches.
  • Blue Cookies strain is the perfect medical marijuana strain for the evening or night.

How does Blue Cookies feel?

Blue Cookies Cloud 9 flower


The best way to describe smoking Blue Cookies strain is that it goes straight to the head and then shoots hard down into the body with a deep sense of relaxation. Blue Cookies is 10% sativa and 90% indica so the overall feeling I felt from this strain was a deep sense of relaxation in my body alongside a euphoric state of mind similar to Purple Punch strain.

You will feel the sativa effects first, almost like a full brain massage. Then about 2-3 minutes in you’ll feel the Beta Caryophyllene terpenes take effect as your entire body settles into a deep state of relaxation. Every muscle in my body just felt like it was decompressing and it’s strong enough to help you get a deep night's sleep. What made Blue Cookies stand out to me was behind the strong body high, I still had a clear state of mind that allowed me to function in general tasks like answering emails or holding a conversation.

Overall, it’s a great mood booster, body relaxer, and, in my opinion, the perfect cannabis strain to smoke in the evening after a hard day's work or right before you sleep.

What terpenes are in Blue Cookies?

The terpenes in cannabis help shape the feel of the high you get in any given strain. The cannabinoids paired alongside the terpenes give each strain its signature high, known as the Entourage Effect. Blue Cookies has 10 different terpenes with a focus on Beta Caryophyllene, Beta Pinene, Humulene, and Linalool. In this section, we go over each of the terpenes so you can understand exactly why Blue Cookies gets its powerful body high coupled with just the right amount of cognitive clarity.

Disclaimer: The terpene profile may vary depending on what medical dispensary you purchased your Blue Cookies from. This section is meant to help you understand how the terpenes influence the effects of this strain.

Alpha Pinene: 0.06 mg/g

Beta Caryophyllene 1.51 mg/g

Beta Pinene 0.18 mg/g

Camphene 0.001 mg/g

Eucalyptol 0.001  mg/g

Humulene 0.52 mg/g

Limonene 0.001 mg/g

Linalool 0.07 mg/g

Myrcene 0.001 mg/g

Terpinolene 0.001 mg/g

Which terpenes make Blue Cookies so relaxing?

The most notable feeling I got when smoking Blue Cookies was the deep muscle relaxation. That comes as no surprise as the leading terpene count in this wonder strain is Beta-Caryophyllene, which is often known to relieve pain and relax the body. The second largest terpene count in Blue Cookies is the Humulene at .52 mg. 

Humulene is believed to have antipain elements and helps to soothe aches so when paired with the Beta Caryophyllene, you get total body relaxation and pain relief. Humulene is also known to suppress appetite which helps curb the “munchies” that most strains come with, but for me personally, I still had a decent appetite but not as severe as smoking other strains such as Gelato.

Other notable terpenes in Blue Cookies

The last terpenes that have a larger presence within Blue Cookies are Beta Pinene and Linalool. Beta Pinene helps to increase mental alertness, cognitive functions, and clarity. Because the Beta pinene count (mental clarity) doesn’t overpower the Beta Caryophyllene (pain relief) you get the perfect ratio of deep body high without losing your mental clarity.

I could easily relax on the couch but had enough cognition to hold a deep conversation with my friends when needed. The last most notable terpene in the Blue Cookies strain is the Linalool. Linalool is known for helping to promote relaxation and enhance sleep quality, which is why this strain is perfect for smoking in the evening after a long day of work or right before bed for a deep restful night.

What cannabinoids are in Blue Cookies

The three primary cannabinoids in Blue Cookies are THC, CBD, and CBG. 

Disclaimer: The cannabinouids in your Blue Cookie strain will vary depending on the cultivar. This section was meant to help you understand the effects of the cannabinoids in your strain.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol): 28%

CBD (cannabidiol): .1%

CBG (cannabigerol):  1.3%

CBD is the lowest % cannabinoid within blue cookies which means you will get much more of the psychoactive components of THC. While not a perfect theory, a general rule of thumb is the higher the CBD % the less you will feel the THC. Blue Cookies is more suited for recreational smokers looking for an amazing head and body high with generous waves of psychoactive components from the high 28% THC count and low CBD count.

There is a notable amount of CBG (cannabigerol) as well in Blue Cookies. More research needs to be done for CBG but it was found in small-scale studies to help reduce anxiety and was reported to help relieve chronic pain.

What do Blue Cookies taste like?

The taste of Blue Cookies will have much to do with the primary terpenes found in the strain. I’ll list the highest terpene count and the flavors it promotes.

Beta-caryophyllene (spicy, cinnamon)

Humulene (earthy, woody, herbal)

Beta Pinene (piney, turpentine, woody)

Linalool (sweet, floral, spicy)

When I smoked Blue Cookies I found the most notable taste was the earthy, spicy, and woody flavors. It was very easy to inhale and the earthy notes were subtle yet pungent. There were also hints of berry and candy at the tail end of my bong rips that give a pleasant kick (most likely from crossing the Blue Berry strain).

What do Blue Cookies smell and look like?

The aroma of Blue Cookies is extremely pleasant with notes of berries, candy, and cherry. There is an undertone of earthy, leathery, and woody which doesn’t overpower the citric smell that makes it so appealing on the nose. 

While the looks depend completely on the cultivation techniques, generally Blue Cookies is known to have beautiful blue, greens, and purples. There should be a generous amount of trichomes and red and orange pistils. 

You can see in the photo above the Blue Cookies I purchased and smoked were laden in coats of trichomes. Light and deep green hues, purples, and some nice orange pistils. If you are questioning the legitimacy of your Blue Cookies strain make sure to check out my guide on bad marijuana strains

Final Thoughts

If you are looking for the perfect weed strain to smoke at the end of the night after a long day of work Blue Cookies is a superb choice. The strain is rich in terpenes and cannabinoids that promote body relaxation and minor pain relief while also having the right amount of terpenes that promote deep sleep. For those of you who are a bit iffy on the Indica dominant because you are not a fan of “couch lock” syndrome, Blue Cookies’s secondary dominant terpenes help create mental clarity, awareness, and cognition making this the perfect strain to relax while still being functional. The cherry on top is it’s a total mood booster, I couldn’t help not smiling the entire time.
