Girl Scout Cookies

From the verdant Californian valleys comes this summery blast of excellence courtesy of the high-grade seed bank, MSNL. Girl Scout Cookies has risen up the food chain of commercially available strains to become the apex smoke of choice for countless weed aficionados across the world. Boasting the kind of genetic quality that puts lesser strains to shame, Girl Scout Cookies is the result of crossing a mystery Durban Poison with Cherry Kush and a Floridian east coast OG Kush.

What we get is an indica dominant beauty with the kind of flavour and high that makes it a natural winner. You may be able to get cheaper strains, but it doesn’t get much better than this and Girl Scout Cookies has the Cannabis Cup awards to prove it.

Strength

Girl Scout Cookies

For all its recent popularity, Girl Scout Cookies does not pull any punches in its strength for the sake of accessibility. With an average THC level of 19-25%, Girl Scout Cookies takes no prisoners yet still retains its widespread appeal. The high begins with a cerebral rush courtesy of its Durban parent that comes on quick and hard, leading to an initial rush of mental activity before settling into a relaxing and soothing calm euphoria. This mental component of the experience makes it ideal for aiding concentration and may even assist you in completing work or projects.

This is followed by the kush heritage of Girl Scout Cookies making itself known through its body-numbing sedative stone. If the high can potentially aid with getting work done, then the subsequent stone will help you relax the rest of the night after. This de-stressing component is also what makes it such a fantastic medical strain, helping with anxiety, stress, depression, and lulling you into a deep and satisfying sleep when needed. Its hefty strength also makes it ideal for more physical complaints such as migraines and chronic pain, as well as helping overcome appetite loss.
For all its positive sides and usefulness, however, it should be remembered that Girl Scout Cookies is one THC packed strain, and as such should be treated with respect and moderation while being enjoyed.

Yield

Girl Scout Cookies doesn’t casually lavish its grower with a small mountain of bud as some other strains do. This is one plant that knows its value and will yield respectable volumes when properly cared for. The emphasis here is on quality rather than quantity, and a properly cultivated plant will yield 250-300g per m2, or 60g per plant.

Speed

Girl Scout Cookies

Growing Girl Scout Cookies should not present too much of a problem for anybody with a little experience, and may even be suitable for a newbie with a bit of diligence. They can be grown indoors or outside, their bright green leaves contrasting with the purple hued bud to make a very visually appealing plant.

Indoors, Girl Scout Cookies will grow well in a hydroponic setup, though the Sea of Green (SoG) growing method can also be used. To get the best results though it is generally recommended the plant be allowed to stretch which, if allowed, can substantially increase your harvest. Its hardy genetics mean it is extraordinarily resistant to mould and mildew, giving you one more reason to invest your time in this fantastic strain. Its flowering time is 65-75 days, keeping under 100cm even when fully grown to make a manageable medium sized plant.

Outdoors Girl Scout Cookies fares slightly differently. Its pest-resistant genes certainly help ease the cultivation process, but it is a little more particular than certain other strains before it will reward you with a generous yield. Girl Scout Cookies prefers warmth and sunshine, ideally in a Mediterranean-style climate. If this is not possible in your area then an indoor setup may be more practical. It can also benefit from the use of a trellis, though it is not strictly necessary for most plants. Harvests will be available up to mid-October, coming after 9 – 10 weeks of growth provided the plant was exposed to the right conditions.

Taste

True to its name, Girl Scout Cookies boasts one of the most delectable tastes you will find in any strain. A rich blend of sweet flavours akin to candyfloss and brown sugar dominate the taste, laying a thick base of decadent richness from which hints of spice and mint emerge. Also buried in the mix are nutmeg and the cookie notes from which the strain takes its name.

Without doubt Girl Scout Cookies packs one distinctive flavour, one so memorable that few who try it can fail to recognise it again.

Bag Appeal

Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies certainly owes much of it visual appeal to its OG Kush heritage, often sporting the beautiful blue colouring that can develop when the plant is exposed to slightly cooler climates as it grows. The buds are thick and dense, with the kind of frosty trichome covering that sits so well atop the coloured nugs. With a scent as delicious and complex as the taste and a stickiness that will entice any regular smoker, it doesn’t take long to understand why Girl Scout Cookies has settled comfortably into being one of the top strains around.

Gorilla Glue Auto

Candy Kush

How does the idea of a strain so powerful and resinous that they had to put ‘Glue’ in the title sound to you? What about if it proved such a hit that it won both the SoCal and Michigan High Times awards for Best Hybrid in 2014? If either of these catch your interest then Gorilla Glue Auto by Auto Seeds may be the strain for you, providing the kind of heavy dose of couch-locked scissor-sticking goodness you’ve been waiting for.

Auto Seeds have crossed a carefully selected phenotype of the original Gorilla Glue with their autoflowering Auto #1. This has resulted in Gorilla Glue Auto, a strain that carries all the knockout indica strength of the original, combined with the autoflowering properties that make it easier than ever to get your hands on its delicious harvest.

Strength

Gorilla Glue Auto

If there is one thing Gorilla Glue is known for it is the kind of muscular deep full-bodied stone that lesser strains cannot hope to replicate without you consuming industrial-sized quantities. It hardly comes as a surprise then that Gorilla Glue Auto comes with the kind of THC level dreams (or nightmares!) are made of, averaging a weighty 23%. Some phenotypes of the strain have even been found to measure around 30%. This makes it one of the strongest indicas in the world, and as enjoyable as Gorilla Glue Auto is it should probably be handled with caution by less experienced smokers.

Its effects are quick, strong, and will stick around all evening even with modest amounts consumed. The thick bodily effect it gives is both relaxing and euphoric, with the kind of couch-lock that will see you relaxed whether you like it or not! This is accompanied by a pleasant buzz that transforms into a state of mental relaxation that brings with it a calm euphoria to create a holistic and powerful effect.
Because of its strength and all-over effects that are felt both mentally and physically, Gorilla Glue Auto works well as a medicinal strain. Treating mental sources of discomfort such as stress and anxiety as well as a wide range of physical conditions including asthma, epilepsy, migraines and nausea, this is one strain that may offer a much needed source of relief.

Yield

While many advise that Gorilla Glue Auto should be used sparingly due to its strength, the yields this autoflowering plant provides are punishingly high. Indoor growth will see you easily harvesting 400-600g per m2 once it has flowered, while outdoors a more modest 50-300g per plant can be obtained.

Speed

Gorilla Glue Auto

For a strain that offers so much in terms of strength and yield, Gorilla Glue Auto is surprisingly easy to grow. It demands very little regardless of whether it is cultivated indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse, withstanding a surprising amount of variation in temperature, climate and nutrients. This easily-thriving plant will not cause you any headaches, taking only 65-75 days to flower and growing anywhere between 60-100cm.

It is advised for indoor growers to use a 600w light per m2 to obtain those bigger yields, while quality nutrients and CO2 enhancements will help both the quality and quantity of your bud. Outdoors it can be grown in pots or in the ground, but if using pots it is advised the containers be no less than 40-50 litres in size for best results.

Taste

With all the attention paid to its stellar stone and easy-growing autoflower genetics, you may be forgiven for thinking Gorilla Glue Auto would not have an especially noteworthy taste. Thankfully this is a rather inaccurate assumption, with the strain packing the kind of flavour that will make it a key component in enjoying the overall experience.

The taste is a rich one consisting of fruity citrus, earthiness and pine alongside delicate notes of coffee. Similar combinations of flavours can also be found in strains such as Sour Diesel and OG Kush, whose taste is often considered a key factor in their success.

Bag Appeal

Gorilla Glue Auto

The fat yields produced by Gorilla Glue Auto have certainly not come at the expense of visual appeal. Their buds are not only abundant but thick and deliciously resinous too, undoubtedly making them responsible for countless clogged-up scissors around the world.

There is a palpable denseness to the bud, giving a satisfying weightiness that hints at the couch-lock to come. This is completed with an icy trichome covering, adding the finishing touches to an already exquisitely presented strain.

Opening the bag reveals the same delectable scent as you find in the taste itself, those notes of citrus, pine and coffee mingling with the solid earthiness for mouth-watering olfactory appeal.

Proving itself to be far more than just another strain with a hefty THC content, Gorilla Glue Auto takes all the strength and flavour of the original and makes it even easier to grow. This is finished with autoflowering genetics and a heavy yield to makes it a top choice for commercial and recreational growers alike.

THC Bomb

Bomb Seeds Logo

THC Bomb was the first signature strain by Bomb Seeds, and to many around the world it is still the best. Firmly cementing itself as a modern classic, this Dutch wonder is so popular it can be easily found in most parts of the cannabis consuming world.

Known as a fantastic all-rounder that seems to excel in every area, THC Bomb performs on all fronts whether it is in yield, high, taste, or speed of flowering. Obtaining a strain with such strength, vigour and ease of growth is a joy for smokers and growers at any level of experience, meaning THC Bomb has something to offer everybody.

Strength

THC Bomb

Bomb Seeds certainly weren’t misleading anyone when they named THC Bomb. With THC levels of around 20-25%, this strain packs enough punch to be used either as a solid recreational high or an endurance test depending on how brave you are.

This is no simple comatose high, however, and the hybrid genetics of THC Bomb that give its 65% indica and 35% sativa makeup offer a multifaceted effect that can be appreciated as much as enjoyed. Naturally the indica side of the smoking experience is more prominent, with the initial smoke giving an immediate and heavy effect. The resulting full-body stone will have you searching for the closest comfy sofa while the sativa high keeps you mentally alert and inquisitive.

This makes THC Bomb especially fun to pair with a good record or film that you can just sink into. Consequently, the strain ends up providing a great all-round buzzing stone that is as impressive and emotionally uplifting as it is powerful. Put the evening aside for this one, because you won’t be going anywhere.

THC Bomb can also be used for medicinal purposes, with its functions including stress relief, alleviation of insomnia, and encouraging appetite. It may also help with PMS and anxiety for some people.

Yield

This is one strain that commercial growers will be keeping an eye on, with its heavy yields and high strength making THC Bomb very much in demand. These are no above-average harvests either, as the strain frequently yields up to 650g per m2, and even at their lower end offer around 550g per m2. Outdoor cultivators especially can expect a bountiful harvest provided the plant is kept happy and exposed to the warm and sunshine.

Speed

THC Bomb

THC Bomb packs a lot of flowering into its diminutive frame, reaching only 65-90cm which makes it great for tight indoor growing spaces or discreet outdoor cultivation. This is not a demanding strain either, and even inexperienced growers can get good results from THC Bomb’s toughness and productivity.

Indoor growers will see their plant responding well to the Sea of Green (SoG) growing method and it can be cultivated in either a soil or hydroponic setup. Flowering will occur in seven to nine weeks, producing their regular and robust purple-tinted harvests.

Outdoors THC Bomb can fare well too, producing yields that generally exceed those grown indoors and may even sport a greater THC level when exposed to the fresh air. If you decide to do so then your trichome-laden harvest should be ready in late September or early October.

Taste

For all its strength and heavy yields, THC Bomb does not slack when it comes to providing flavour either. The strain has a rich primary skunky taste with a notable earthiness to it. Hiding away behind this is a sour note that adds complexity and a satisfying finish to the experience.

Bag Appeal

THC Bomb

THC Bomb has the kind of bud you’d expect of such a highly regarded strain – dense, hard, and as large as small rocks. These are equally as satisfying to handle as they are to smoke, providing a tactile joy that makes the experience that much more pleasurable.

To add yet more visual appeal they have an even surface covering of bright orange flecks that stand out vividly from the green. Along with this is the kind of thick frosty white trichome covering that matches the colossal THC levels that this strain packs.

THC Bomb rounds off its first impressions with an earthy and skunky scent that closely matches its taste. This is joined by a distinct collection of ripe fruit notes too, adding a sharp yet sweet finish to the scent of the strain.

Little more needs to be said for THC Bomb as its reputation speaks for itself. This vivid hybrid offers the indica calm, the sativa stimulation, the easy growth, top yields and rich taste that only the most particular smokers will be able to find fault with.

Sporting the kind of tough genetics that can see rich harvests emerge with even minimal effort, THC Bomb is ideal for growing both for personal or commercial use. So if you’re considering growing a plant for the first time and don’t know where to start, you really can’t go wrong with THC Bomb.

Gorilla Bomb

Bomb Seeds Logo

For many regular smokers their THC tolerance creeps up over the years. This becomes a point of pride for some and a wistful regret for others as their days of reaching the stratosphere with a quick smoke edge ever further away.
For such cosmonauts there is an answer, a strain so powerful it will take experienced smokers places they have never reached and should come with a warning sticker for newbies. This answer is Gorilla Bomb, an explosive strain by Bomb Seeds that will see you left with big yields, a king-sized stone and one of the most resinous harvests you’ve ever handled.

This beast of a strain comes from breeding a clone of the #4 pheno with THC Bomb to make a product that is sinfully strong and more than deserving of the buzz around it.

Strength

Gorilla Bomb

When looking at Gorilla Bomb it is only natural to speak about its brutal strength, with the strain measuring 23-25% TCH levels or more in many harvests. While endless fun for a seasoned cannabis aficionado, this really can knock out an unsuspecting smoker who innocently treats it the same as less potent strains. Make no mistake, the gargantuan strength of Gorilla Bomb is one of the most fun parts of it, but it may not be for the uninitiated.

Genetically Gorilla Bomb is a sativa dominant hybrid with enough indica to cover all bases. It is a fast acting strain with a multi-layered high that is both bodily and cerebral. It starts quickly after the first inhalation, causing a head rush that may be startling on the first try. This then eases out into a more relaxed, care-free sense of contentment that is uplifting and even energetic for some. When the initial mental effects have plateaued into a stable buzzing sense of euphoria, the bodily effects begin to take hold in a relaxing and highly satisfying manner.

This is definitely one to set aside for an evening of chilled out bliss. Moderation may be key, but with Gorilla Bomb you can quickly find yourself stuck to the couch after succumbing to its moreish and resinous appeal.

Yield

Gorilla Bomb doesn’t just deliver mind-blowing quality bud, it also delivers plenty of it with a yield that averages between 400-550g per m2. If grown for personal use then even the biggest weed fanatic will have their work cut out for them getting through one harvest. However, after one evening spent with Gorilla Bomb you may find yourself willing to take up the challenge.

Speed

Gorilla Bomb

Gorilla Bomb will reward careful cultivation with the best harvests it can offer, making this one strain it is worth going the extra mile for. It can be grown both indoors and outside, taking around nine to ten weeks to flower, with most plants growing to a medium sized 90cm-100cm. Outdoor growers should find their rich harvest ready in October.

In the later stages of growing and throughout flowering Gorilla Bomb responds well to being treated with more nutrients than usual. The result of this will be buds that are thicker, more dense, and coated with enough resin to gum up your scissors within minutes.

Taste

Offering more than just a freight train-powered high, Gorilla Bomb also boasts a fantastic flavour. Contrary to the blunt force strength of the effects, the taste of Gorilla Bomb is a lot more refined, even subtle at first.

The initial flavour will be much like chocolate, sweet yet with a touch of bitterness. This gives way to a palatable fuel-like aftertaste that comes from the diesel genetics buried in the strain. Hidden in here too are notes of pine that sit in the sweet and sour mix to add a welcome complexity.

The subtlety of the flavour lessens over time to give way to a rising intensity of taste, building to eventually fill your mouth with a rich a potent flavour as you exhale.

Bag Appeal

Gorilla Bomb

Even before researching or trying it, Gorilla Glue does a good job at selling itself if you can get your hands on some. Straight from the bag you can detect a tangy sour pine aroma to it that is only mildly evident in the taste. This attention grabbing scent is both delicious and strong, and upon closer inspection also contains bits of the chocolate and diesel you find more strongly in the flavour.

Getting your hands on the bud directly shows another side of it – the resinous goodness that Gorilla Glue simply oozes. Along with the weight of the trichomes this makes the strain irresistible to seasoned smokers and dab fans alike.

Gorilla Glue will struggle to find competitors that manage to achieve the levels of potency and knockout effect that it so effortlessly demonstrates. This is no novelty one-trick pony, however, and the heavy yields and great taste means Gorilla Glue can offer so much more. Think you’re up to the challenge? Order today and maybe you’ll find out.

Northern Lights Feminized Marijuana

Northern Lights

Northern Lights holds the distinction of being both one of the most popular strains in the world yet also having one of the most vague and shrouded histories. Whilst its unclear origins only add to the buzz around it, it is believed that Northern Lights is the result of crossing indica Afghani strains with sativa Thai landrace strains. Making its way to the Netherlands, the strain was further tampered with as two of its best phenotypes were crossed to make the timeless and beautiful skunk hybrid we have today.

This blend of attributes and attention to detail is likely the reason for Northern Lights’ success lasting so long, not losing any of its popularity since its introduction in the 80’s. Winning the overall High Times Cannabis Cup awards in 1990 and 1994, and the pure indica award in 1989, Northern Lights’ reputation speaks for itself. If that wasn’t enough, its popularity has also led to the birth of countless strains that are descended from its outstanding genetics.

Some will even claim it is the grandparent of the modern strains we see today, but with its continuing demand, old school appeal and ease of growth this is one strain you simply have to try for yourself.

Strength

Northern Lights

Northern Lights is a shamelessly indica dominant hybrid strain, celebrating all that is great with a quality indica smoke and relegating its sativa side to around 5-10% of its genetic makeup. This strain is ideal for leaving the world behind for a few hours as you slip into your own reality through its strong sedating stone. Its effects come on quickly and boldly, making its 15-20% THC content clearly known and putting milder indica strains to shame.

The couch-lock effect of Northern Lights will come on fairly quickly after smoking, gluing you in one place for the evening. This is especially evident when higher quantities are smoked, making it the perfect strain to pair with a rewarding record or a visually rich film. However, higher amounts may see you drifting into sleep so moderation is key if you want to enjoy its relaxing effects more than its slumber-inducing ones.

Northern Lights is no simple anchor to your couch though as the mental component of the high is also highly satisfying, keeping mental activity lively and raising your spirits to feel at ease with the world. Because of this mix of levelling mental effects and relaxing physical sensations, Northern Lights has proven popular as a medical strain. Such is its utility that it is routinely prescribed to deal with insomnia, anxiety, depression, and more physical conditions such as appetite loss and chronic pain.

Yield

Northern Lights will provide plenty of its high-quality bud for anyone taking a shot at growing it. While the size and quality of yields will improve with the experience and diligence of the grower, Northern Lights is a very forgiving plant and will be suitable for inexperienced and veteran growers alike. Generally the plant will yield around 450-500g per m2.

Speed

Northern Lights

This ease of cultivation has naturally made Northern Lights a popular strain for a range of growers. While the plant is consistent and reliable, it still needs certain conditions to be met to provide the best it is capable of.

Northern Lights was designed to thrive indoors and is therefore best attempted in such an environment. In its quick 45-50 day flowering period the strain will be a breeze to cultivate, happily growing whether it be placed in a soil or hydroponic setup, though it does respond well to the Sea of Green (SoG) method. Its easy growth is also assisted by some hardy genetics that makes it highly resistant to pests and mould.

While the strain is very beginner-friendly, it is still worth noting that giving it enough light and space will get the best results. A successful cultivation will see your plant reach a modest 110cm in height, making it even easier to raise indoors.
Outdoor growth is possible if not highly recommended. Grown outside, Northern Lights will need a warm sunny Mediterranean environment and you may get little to no results without it. Those who can provide these conditions, however, will see their harvest ready at the end of September.

Taste

Northern Lights offers a pleasant blend of flavours that matches the quality of its stone. A pungent sweetness forms the basis of the taste, more richly fruity than candy-like, with spicy notes peppered throughout. The tangy taste of the inhale contrasts with the earthy flavour of the exhale, making for a smooth and enjoyable smoke.

Bag Appeal

Northern Lights

The rounded and broad-shaped green buds of Northern Lights are thick with sticky resin, packed tightly with flecks of golden pistils protruding from the green. The scent is deceptively subdued, being one of the less pungent of the skunk strains which makes it convenient when discretion is required. The smell, however, is a pleasant one of fruit and spice with just a little hash in there too. The result of this formula is a strain that has managed to stay relevant and thrive over three decades after its introduction.
