Cookies, more commonly known as Girl Scout Cookies, is an indica-dominant hybrid strain created through a three-way cross of the potent OG Kush, Durban Poison, and Cherry Kush strains. It is known for its cookie-like flavors and earthy kush taste. Mandarin Cookies’ other parent strain, Mandarin Sunset, is a cross between Hero Juana and Orange Skunk. It has an evenly-balanced sativa to indica ratio and rich, skunky orange flavor profile.
Mandarin Cookies has a 70/30 sativa to indica ratio, and it is very potent, meaning it’s best reserved for intermediate or experienced consumers.
The strain provides a “lifted” high that hits the mind and body with what some consumers describe as a “jolt of positivity” that makes it an ideal strain for consumers looking for a mood boost. Soon after inhaling, one may experience an initial rush of euphoria that enables creative work and free-associate thinking. Some say that Mandarin Cookies can be a valuable tool to counteract boredom or mental blocks that affect creative work.
Mandarin Cookies is generally only mildly sedating, meaning it probably won’t leave the consumer glued to the couch. Of course, each strain affects consumers in different ways, and some do report that Mandarin Cookies’ relaxing body high acts as the perfect precursor to an afternoon nap.
Overall, consumers say that Mandarin Cookies leaves them feeling relaxed, uplifted, happy, euphoric, or creative.
Mandarin Cookies has a sharp, tangy citrus flavor with some hints of rich, nutty herbs upon exhale. The aroma is very earthy and kushy, and carries a sour tangerine undertone.
