Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies marijuana strain, as the name suggests, is one of several phenotypes of the legendary Girl Scout Cookies strain. This is an extremely rare cannabis strain to see in Europe, and as far as I am aware the only place to get it in Barcelona is at La Mesa private cannabis club. A potent, fragrant and delicious strain, Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is not only an excellent strain as a special and unique treat, it’s also extremely useful for a wide variety of daily-use purposes.
Strain Review Rating for Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: 5 of 5 Stars!
Developed by The Cali Connection in California in conjunction with the West Coast Rapper Berner, this phenotype of GSC was only available as a cut until recently. Now The Cali Connection and Gorilla Seeds have feminized seeds available.
Thin Mint GSC was developed by crossing original Girl Scout Cookies with F1 Durban Poison and OG Kush. Thin Mint is one popular phenotype of GSC, while Platinum Girl Scout Cookies is also extremely popular. For now, both of these strains are generally difficult to acquire outside of California.
How did I get Thin Mint GSC in Barcelona, Spain?
In the last few weeks I had been searching for a new strain to review, but despite being a member at numerous private cannabis clubs in Barcelona, I just couldn’t find anything that really sparked my interest. Finally my friend and grower for La Mesa Barcelona hit me up with 6 grams of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and I knew with one look and one whiff from the bag that this was going to be a special strain. I wasn’t disappointed.
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: Look & Feel
La Mesa’s growing staff, also fellow socios, did an excellent job curing this strain. Extremely frosty with trichomes, Thin Mint buds are pliable but dense and sticky enough that when you press a bud, it yields satisfyingly, but does not bounce back at all.
Thin Mint GSC exhibits densely populated but thin and wispy trichomes throughout the flowers, interspersed moderately with reddish orange “hairs.” Overall the green coloration of the buds is light and in some cases where the trichomes are thickly distributed the buds appear almost white.
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: Taste & Smell
The Thin Mint phenotype of GSC is aptly named as it smells like a delicious sweet baked treat with a hint of mint/eucalyptus, and a little bit of earthiness. The dessert-like qualities of this strain intensify when breaking open a bud, but generally the scent does not change.
Incredibly, the scent profile of this strain comes across with very little lost in flavor. Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is a delicious sweet treat – this is the best way to summarize the taste and smell of this fantastic phenotype.
Unlike other unique or flavorful strains, Thin Mint GSC does not lose its minty cookies flavor with successive hits. Even after multiple burns of a joint or bong of this strain, you’ll still get hit after hit of scrumptiousness.
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: Potency
Thin Mint GSC is an extremely potent strain. What I found after testing this strain for about a week is that there are essentially two stages of the high, which are dependent on how much you smoke or ingest. With just one or two good-sized hits from a bong or joint, most of the effects remain focused in the head, eyes and neck. A cerebral type of high, this is perfect for working, exercising or otherwise “getting stuff done.” The high is moderately intense but for me, two hits of Thin Mints is not enough to be fully satisfied.
At 3-4 or more hits of this strain, the cerebral effects remain but the body effects also begin to take hold strongly. This strain generally works its way into my calves and upper thighs first, then the head and neck effects move down the chest until my torso is completely relaxed. Interestingly, these body effects never extend beyond the areas mentioned; extremities like hands and feet seem unaffected.
After 4 hits or more the high changes from an active one to a rather sleepy one. While I did use this strain during my every-other-day 10 mile (16km) run and found that it was extremely useful for achieving a meditative state and lessening any related join or muscular pain, it also made me sleepy to the point of being sluggish.
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: Duration
Veteran stoners can expect a strong high for 2-3 hours. This high is moderately reduced by eating food or drinking cold beverages. However, even strenuous and sustained exercise does not seem to diminish the high. I typically smoke a third to a half a joint immediately prior to running 8-10 miles and with Thin Mint I am still just as high even after a long hard run in the Spanish sun.
This strain has a short peaking period; most of the effects from each hit are felt immediately or within a minute or two. This makes it an excellent candidate for predictable dosing, where you know basically what to expect within a couple of minutes of smoking and are not unpleasantly surprised by a long “creeper” effect.
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is a 5 Star premium strain that has a full range of incredible qualities that make it highly desirable to nearly any cannabis enthusiast or medical user. This includes a unique and memorable fragrance, a delicious dessert-like flavor, and a potent, long-lasting high. Have you tried Thin Mint GSC? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
