Cookie Monster Strain - A Heavy Indica
When it comes to weed that will deliciously drop you into a deep relaxation, the Cookie Monster strain wins the ultimate prize.
An Award-Winning Marijuana Strain
In fact, this award-winning strain took first place at the 2014 Seattle Cannabis Cup, earning the title of Best U.S. Indica for the year.
Cookie Monster Strain History and Origin
Cookie Monster is a pure indica cannabis strain with an unknown origin story.
It’s crossbred from the one and only OG Kush and the popular Girl Scout Cookies marijuana strains, making for a dank nug that is both a beauty to behold and a sweet treat to smoke.
Cookie Monster has a sole identity, so make sure not to confuse it with Monster Cookies! Monster Cookies is also a relaxing indica strain, but its parent strains are Girl Scout Cookies and Grandaddy Purple. An honest mistake, but an important distinction none-the-less!
Cookie Monster Strain Review
Like the beloved Sesame Street character, the Cookie Monster cannabis strain makes its presence known.
This heavy indica strain has a strong visual appeal and hits with a hefty high.
One look at Cookie Monster’s nugs, and you’ll want to gobble this bud down as fast as its beloved namesake gobbles down actual cookies.
Cookie Monster’s dense nugs are covered with sticky trichomes. It is a tri-color delight, with a mix of green flowers decorated with dark purple and bright orange pistils.
Terpene Profile and THC Content
Cookie Monster’s terpenes and THC levels make this cannabis strain a tasty delight that will leave you feeling good.
Myrcene is the primary dominant terpene found in the Cookie Monster marijuana strain.
It has a spicy aroma that carries sweet undertones.
Myrcene acts as a mood enhancer that brings out a balanced calmness. It is great for stress relief, calming anxiety, and assisting in sleep and relaxation.
It should come as no surprise that the terpene pinene has a piney scent and taste.
In fact, pinene is the most common terpene found in plants.
Pinene works hard in the human body, helping to ease depression, inflammation, cancer, and respiratory ailments. It is also neuroprotective and antimicrobial.
Linalool is a terpene with many attributes reminiscent of lavender (another plant you can find linalool in!).
It carries a lavender-like aroma with a spicy mix blended in.
Linalool helps to bring on a physical and mental state of relaxation, helping to relieve stress, ease depression and lessen anxiety.
This terpene helps to boost the immune system and is antimicrobial.
The Cookie Monster strain averages a THC content of 17%, though it has been reported to come in as low as 14% and as high as 23%. Depending on where you buy this bud, you could be in for a potent ride!
