In the most unofficial holiday news possible, turns out October is National Cookie Month. 

With GSC, a.k.a. Cookies, being such an influential cannabis strain, it’s only right that you celebrate all month by consuming it. 

There are many GSC-crossed strains on the market that provide a variety of experiences. Some make you happy and some put you to sleep, so, in order to help you choose which Cookies strain is right for you this October, I’ve comprised a list of strains crossed with GSC, as well as the chemical profiles (cannabinoids and terpenes) that help drive their effects. 

Find your shape, find your color, find your Cookies.

Orange Cookies

Orange Cookies is a cross of GSC and Orange Juice that produces a super stoney and euphoric feeling. It’ll have you happy and relaxed; effects were usually considered indica dominant, however we know that these effects are more closely tied to its terpene profile, featured in the above flower. Grab this strain if you want to kick off Natty Cookie Month properly.

You’ve probably seen this strain popping up in a bunch of crosses over the past year, and with good reason: Do-Si is some goddamn fire, boy. Do-Si-Dos is a beautiful purple cross of OGKB, a beautiful phenotype of the renowned GSC and Face Off OG. Many associate this strain with relaxed effects, giving you a very stoney feel. So if you want to wind down with some Cookies, Do-Si could be the one for you.

GMO Cookies

GMO Cookies is one of the most visually appealing strains on this list by far. Also known as Garlic Cookies, GMO has a very distinct and identifiable garlic aroma backed by that classic OG funk, courtesy of Chemdog and GSC genetics. Straight up, if you want something that’ll get you stoooooned, GMO Cookies is 100% the way to go.

If you’ve ever smoked Sherbert, chances are it was false because its genetics are all over the strainosphere. A cross of Pink Panties and GSC, Sherbert is a fruity and gassy strain with pretty purple flowers.

The high is a bit lighter and easier to manage than a lot of other Cookies strains; it holds powerful effects, so if you want to celebrate without being so damn high you can’t think, Sherbert could be a good option for the novices.

Blueberry Cookies

Want a little fruity flavor added to that gassy earthiness that comes from Cookies? Blueberry Cookies might hold the terpenes for you. A cross of Blueberry Tahoe and Thin Mint GSC—the chosen GSC phenotype for many Cookies strains—this strain hits the body with relaxed feels and a creative mindstate.

You know and love Gelato already, so there’s no reason to even get into its details. But I will. Gelato is a potent cross of Thin Mint GSC and Sherbert that’ll punch you right in the body with a heavy dose of euphoria and relaxation.

It has many popular phenotypes, including Gelato 33 and Gelato 41, all of which will hit you with that same powerful experience. Novices should steer clear, unless you’re ready to be on Cloud 9, 10, and 11.

Tropicana Cookies

Tropicana Cookies is one of the most delicious and visually appealing cannabis strains in all of cannabis. Straight up, this flower is PURPLE, which would lead you to believe it holds the sedative effects of many strains with similar aesthetics.

However, this cross of Tangie and GSC has effects that are light and fun, as in this strain is perfect for daytime activities or group sessions where everyone’s tolerance varies. 

If you grab no other strain on this list (smoke that GMO, for real), grab some Trop Cookies and take National Cookie Month to the maximum level.
