Monterey Bud

Animal Cookies (AC) are typically a loud strain with a seductive pedigree. Firm, fragrant, and flashing dense plant structure, this hybridized offspring of Girl Scout Cookies x Fire OG Bx3 comprises a tight calyx, tangerine-colored pistils and aromatic terpenes. Blazed and savored during a Tuesday afternoon meeting of the minds, our joint of AC provided an introspective moment for elevated discussions. With an OG musk and floral overtones, AC gives way to a familiar air of Girl Scout Cookies when first dissected for rolling. Feeling highly motivated, I found my ADHD in check from our joint of Animal Cookies for an extended period of time.

Animal Cookies has alluring emerald hues, dotted with splats of darker leaves, like chocolate chips inside a lump of unbaked dough. Speaking of baked, this glistening lady got me lightly toasted without being out of sorts. The flowers felt pokey and had a light, sweet aroma, the flavor was subtle, too. I’m never a stickler about the smoking method, but for these trichome laden flowers, be sure to roll with a crutch. Even then, beware. By the time our sesh circle got the joint to near-roach form, the paper was glued shut with resin, making it a challenge to get a drag. But if Animal Cookies are pressed into rosin or enjoyed in a piece, it’ll be sheer bliss.
