There are many different phenotypes of the Girl Scout Cookies strain including Thin Mint and Platinum Cookies. The largest reason for this is the way the original growers protected their genetics: hording. Pretty much all of the ‘cuts’ are the result of unstable genetics in the early years. That’s a fancy way to say that the plants used to hermaphrodite easily and often. The seeds that subsequently made it into bags were the basis for most if not all of the versions of the strain outside of the California based originator CookieFam.
This sample is the Berner Cut, one of the more popular and most recognized variants. This flower expresses its beauty in twisting green calyxes draped in crystallized purple leaves and fiery orange hairs. The quality of this flower made filming it a real treat. I couldn’t help but be drawn to the dark leaves that juxtaposed the nearly white trichomes. The duet of opposites pervades this strain in award winning fashion. As a multi-time winner of cannabis cups, Girl Scout Cookies has the quality of the genetics growers and consumers are looking for.
