Blue Cookies

Blue Cookies is an indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that contains 90% Cannabis indica and 10% Cannabis sativa genetics. It’s made by crossing the Blueberry and Girl Scout Cookies strains. The Blue Cookies strain has sweet, berry, earthy, cherry, and candy flavors and aromas. However, when you break or burn the flowers, it develops a leathery smell. This cultivar’s relaxing, euphoric effects may make it helpful in managing chronic pain and insomnia.

Blue Cookies is a colorful strain with blue, purple, and green hues. The buds are large and chunky, and the leaves appear clumped in long conical shapes. These flowers are surrounded by bright red and orange pistils. Blue Cookies also have a thick layer of frosty trichomes due to the high resin content.

The history of Blue Cookies isn’t clear. It’s believed to have been created in Washington, but the original breeders haven’t been identified.

As an aside, a second Blue Cookies strain exists, just a different version of the Girl Scout Cookies strain. The information provided in this article relates to the Girl Scout Cookies x Blueberry hybrid strain.

Growing

growing strains

Blue Cookies seeds can be hard to find. To make clones, growers should use cuttings from mature parts of the strain.

Blue Cookies can be grown indoors and outdoors. Growing cannabis indoors or in a greenhouse allows the grower to control the environment and provide plants with optimal growing conditions.

Growing Blue Cookies is not recommended for beginner cultivators, and these plants require attention and regular maintenance. For example, you should regularly prune and trim the leaves so light and air can reach the lower parts of the plant.

The Blue Cookies flowers are heavy and dense, which can weigh down and potentially damage the plant, so you may need to ensure that the plant is physically supported.

The average yield of Blue Cookies is similar to other cannabis strains. Blue Cookies usually yield 12 to 16 ounces of bud per square meter when grown indoors, and you can expect to get at least 16 ounces of bud per square meter when grown outdoors.

Height

Like other indica varieties, the Blue Cookies strain is short to medium in height. You can expect it to grow between 3 and 5 feet (0.9 and 1.5 meters).

Humidity and Temperature

Like most other cannabis strains, some humidity is helpful when growing Blue Cookies.

The Blue Cookies strain grows well in moderate to warm climates. Optimal temperatures are between 70 and 74 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 23 degrees Celsius). To enable the flowers’ bright purple and blue hues to develop, you should “shock” Blue Cookies with cooler temperatures at night when the plant is close to flowering.

Flowering

Blue Cookies plants generally flower in nine to 10 weeks, which is relatively fast. If you grow Blue Cookies outdoors, you can expect to harvest in late September in the Northern Hemisphere.
