Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies History
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies was created by a mysterious group of San Francisco area ganja growers with sweet tooths known as the “Cookie Family.” The Cookie Family doesn’t promote its products through cannabis cups like many other growers. They are a large network of highly spiritual friends who are morally committed to making the world a better place by educating themselves to grow the best plants using organic methods (according to Mr. Sherbinsky, a member of the Cookie Family who was interviewed with fellow family members Flux and Jigga by High Times).
According to Leafly, most of the Girl Scout Cookies strains found in dispensaries are knock-offs that don’t have true Cookie Family Genetics. The “secret sauce” of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is an amazing strain only known as “F1”, according to Jigga. The Family crossed this F1 strain with Durban Poison for a strong sativa effect and then crossed the result with another much-loved hybrid called OG kush known for its huge dense buds.
Growing Your Own Minty Girl Scout Cookie Goodness
Girl Scout Cookie strains tend to grow tall, slender and require a bit more attention according to Jigga. The Cookie Family uses 3 x 6 fabric bed geopots to allow the roots to mingle and spread out in a soilless coco blend augmented with organic fertilizers. They use one 1,000 watt high-pressure sodium lights per nine plants and encourage their plants to grow big and bushy. The Cookie Family also brews its own microbial compost teas since Girl Scout Cookie Strains have a higher threshold for nutrients according to Jigga. He also recommends doubling up on your charcoal filters for the growing this strain as well since it’s odor can get really strong especially during the slow, old-school, two-week tobacco style cure they use for Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. You’ll only get about 25 to 30 grams of bud per plant with this low-yielding strain which simply “isn’t for you if you’re looking to pull weight” according to Jigga.
