It’s January, so it’s Girl Scout Cookie time. This brings in visions of Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Shortbread cookies, and (if you’re one of the test markets each year), gluten-free varieties.
But… there is a “dark side” version of “Girl Scout Cookies”. According to this article in High Times Magazine, “Girl Scout Cookies” is also a strain of marijuana:
“For the past few years, people in the cannabis world have been talking a lot about the strain known as Girl Scout Cookies. Chances are your local pot merchant, whether he or she is working in a medical dispensary or for a delivery service, has something on the menu called Girl Scout Cookies. But the truth is that the genuine Girl Scout Cookies is quite hard to find. The breeders who created this famous strain — an outfit who call themselves the Cookie Family — do not advertise, and they do not enter Cannabis Cups (a 3 day trade show/expo). Their activities are strictly on a need-to-know basis. Like many stoners, the Cookie Family has a sweet tooth, which is why their strains are all named after some sort of dessert — hence such varieties as Sherbet, and, of course, Girl Scout Cookies.”
