Girl Scout Cookies: The Strain That Started It All

The origins of Girl Scout Cookies also known as Cookies or GSC is surrounded by mysteries and legends with several breeders (breeders) who claim their creation.

It is believed that it is a cross between Durban Poison, OG Kush and Grand Daddy Purple, but the truth is that this variety does not have a well-defined genetics.

Cookie Fam has claimed that they are the true creators of this acclaimed genetics.

When this variety came out on the market it began to rise like foam and the fame of the dispensary that sold it grew without stopping.

We can say that this variety was a turning point in the quality of marijuana varieties that caused breeders to make much more of an effort to find new soil profiles for their varieties.

It was no longer enough to just look for the most productive (GSC is not exactly), it was necessary to enhance the flavors to infinity.

Jigga and Cookies Fam have presented other dessert flavored creations such as London Pound Cake, Cereal Milk, Pink Panties, Biscotti, Gelati, Cherry Pie, Gelato, and Life or Thin Mint.

The Gelato variety has striking purple hues with orange pistils that underline its dessert-leaning terpenes.

The cheekily named Pink Panties strain is another powerhouse strain in the Jigga marijuana repertoire that leaves users sedated and smooth.

The hybrid strain of Cookies indica is a cross between Gelato 25 and South Florida OG.

Jigga marijuana strains are particularly potent due to Jigga and Cookie Fam's expertise in pheno-hunting, the process of finding specific plants from a group that exhibit desired characteristics and superior genetics.



Berner, the tireless CEO

A few hours before the Santa Cruz show, Berner is engulfed on a plush sofa backstage. He seems relaxed as he scrolls through his social media feeds, but when he starts talking about the projects and business deals he has in the works, it becomes clear that his suave demeanor masks a workaholic and powerful CEO who has the look on his face. put on owning the cannabis industry.

“People may not realize it, but I take care of everything,” says Berner. “I run Vibes (rolling papers) and my own Instagrams, help with Cookies [stores], approve all clothing and packaging designs, develop marketing strategies, and work with breeders and store managers on sales and numbers. It's a crazy roller coaster ride right now."

Perhaps it's fitting that Berner began his music career as a freestyle, battle rapper who mixed wit and rhymes with all comers during his Bay Area high school years.

As you build your Cookie empire, you're taking the same approach to expanding your business, always improvising and looking for creative ways to beat the competition.

And it works for them, the queues when a Cookies store opens start the night before. Yes, as you hear it, there are people who spend a night outdoors waiting for the opening of their favorite store.
