A cannabis strain’s popularity can be predicted best by looking at its lineage. When it comes to Thin Mint Cookies, one of its parents has won a ton of cannabis cup championships. It was bred from the classic strains Og Kush and Durban Poison. Og Kush is part of so many phenotypes that its many variations have won countless awards in cannabis competitions. It could possibly be the most popular strain ever. This is due to its paralyzing buzz that leaves many users in a kush induced coma. When this variety started popping up, it began a transition period to higher quality cannabis. Breeding it with a pure sativa like Durban Poison leaves a perfectly balanced hybrid. However, just because it isn’t indica dominant doesn’t mean it won’t overpower a lot of casual smokers. Like both of its parents, THC levels can reach over 20% when grown correctly.
I know several people that prefer this strain for pain relief whenever it is around. This is because it can provide comparable results to indica strains that end up relaxing the whole body. Using this strain doesn’t always result in drowsiness. The beauty of hybrids is that they can be used in a variety of ways. Thin Mint Cookies is also a great choice for those fighting the side effects of cancer. This variety is known to be great at combating nausea and stimulating the appetite. Unfortunately CBD levels are low, so it is likely not ideal medicine for those suffering from seizures.
Personally, there are a few characteristics about this strain that makes it one of my all time favorites. When it is rolled into a joint the flavor it produces is next level. The name accurately represents the earthy mint terpenes that can be tasted on both the inhale and exhale. In addition, recreational users love it because the euphoria and stress relief are outstanding. A long day at work brings lots of stress, but users forget all about that after just a few rips. Trying to stay under the radar in a public place can be very difficult thanks to its pungent odor. You could easily smell someone smoking this from a good distance. Every stoner knows that scent is a great indicatior of quality, and one sniff out of the jar will have people reaching for their money.
