Animal Cookies Strain Information:
Animal Cookies, also known as Animal Crackers, is a relatively recent indica cross, a powerful strain with some prominent genetics. It is a cross between perennial favourite Girl Scout Cookies and indica hybrid Fire OG, created by Canadian seed bank BC Bud Depot. With multicoloured flowers and a nuanced sweet-sour smell, Animal Cookies is definite for customers. It has extreme, almost narcotic Indica effects, offering relief from pain, relaxing, and sleep. Cannabis lab Analytical 360 has checked Animal Cookies samples and estimated between 18% and an incredible 27% of its THC material.
Tiny to medium-sized popcorn-like buds with a thick bud arrangement characteristic of other Indicas are marked by Animal Cookies. The leaves are yellowish-green; faint purple hues can be expressed in certain phenotypes. When warmer temperatures activate pigments called anthocyanins, this purple is pulled out. The mechanism is close to how vegetation changes colour in fall when chlorophyll breaks down in cooler weather. The buds are very moist and coated in trichomes of white to cloudy amber, possibly lending their yellowish colour to the leaves.Orange hairs stick out against the vivid flowers, which are in fact pistils to capture pollen from male plants. Animal Cookies have a smell with a dank, skunky edge that is both sweet and sour. Breaking the sticky flowers open produces some more pepper and pine notes.
Interestingly, this strain is not considered to have a grape-like taste; while in the correct conditions its pigments carry out purple hues, this does not contribute to a corresponding difference in flavour. Animal cookies have a dark, harsh smoke when combusted, which also causes coughing. When exhaled, this smoke has a sweet and vaguely spicy smell.
Animal Cookies have a high for a primarily Indica strain that sets in quite easily. Before entering a weighty and palpable stoney sensation that impacts the whole body, smoking may not have stopped coughing. This relief is accompanied by mental well-being, so that consumers usually feel exceptionally relaxed and happy. This strain does not confer the kind of quick-association thoughtfulness that comes with more pure sativa varieties without any cortical strength. If consumers continue to indulge in its powerful bud, the intense relief that Animal Cookies offers will melt into a powerful couch-lock.uThese physical effects also make the medicinal application of Animal Cookies an important painkiller. Many that suffer from both moderate and more severe nerve-based pain experience symptom reduction or complete relief. The heaviness of this strain also renders it an outstanding therapy for insomnia-fighting users. Mentally, Animal Cookies can also be useful in helping to treat depression and fear, as in the stoney haze it keeps people happily unaware. Side effects, along with some hunger enhancement, include the normal dry eyes and dry mouth. Animal Cookies are commonly not celebrated for helping consumers achieve jobs, rather preferred for nighttime than daytime use.
This strain will be difficult to cultivate, and cultivation is not recommended for beginners. The plants of Animal Cookies tend to be a synthesis of indica and sativa species, with plants that grow tall but often have bushy and horizontally-spreading lateral branches, better nurtured indoors than out. Luckily, if users bend and trim the stems and branches, it responds, increasing appropriately to suit the surrounding space. In order to allow light and air to circulate to the lower branches and flowering nodes, growers should also be careful to trim any large fan leaves growing near the top of the plant.Animal cookies, when grown indoors, enter the flowering stage within 9 to 10 weeks and give a higher than normal yield. Growers should bear in mind that even in the vegetative stage this is a very pungent strain, and those wanting to preserve their activities discreetly should put in place odour prevention steps such as carbon air filters. Animal cookies can be grown from clippings taken from mature plants as clones; instead, seeds from this strain can be bought online from the BC Bud Depot breeder.
Animal Cookies has the finest of indica strains to deliver with a well-rounded, hashy flavour and a strong body block. It is also likely to have continued success thanks to its memorable name, conjuring nostalgia for childhood treats. Even for seasoned cannabis enthusiasts, this strain is intense and enjoyable, and is best enjoyed alone in a peaceful atmosphere or with a small, intimate group of good friends.
