Animal Cookies Cannabis Review | Animal Cookies Weed Strain

Animal Cookies Plant Fire

Animal Cookies weed is not messing around. It's a potent strain, with very famous genetics, making it a strain that you may have to reach to the very top shelf to get. This cross between Fire OG and GSC makes for a formidable opponent for any stoner to fight against.

This combination creates a dramatic high, which can be enjoyed for many different reasons.

Animal Cookies Background 

This relatively new strain is creating waves across the West Coast and in Canada. It has multiple colors, including orange hairs, which come from its Fire OG parent. You may also hear it referred to as Animal OG or as Animal Crackers.

Animal Cookies Weed

Originally from Canada, Animal Cookies strain is one of a growing number of strains that are becoming more and more potent and crazier and crazier. These strains are called #dankenstein, and are created with the sole purpose of truly getting their user stoned. This cross between Fire OG and GSC can come in at an impressive 27% THC, although some tests much lower at around 18%. It was created by the seed bank BC Bud Depot.

Animal Cookies Price

Thankfully, as this strain was made by a seed bank (although this time a Canadian seed bank) this means that the seeds are available online. This means that overall the price should be lower. However, as this strain is a boutique strain, and is apparently hard to grow, it is still pretty expensive. It's probably around $25 a gram in a Dutch coffee shop.


Fire OG strain: 

Fire OG is a famous strain, which has orange hairs across it. It's an Indica-dominant hybrid, which it passes onto Animal Cookies Strain.

Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookie is also an Indica-dominant hybrid and has a sweet, earthy taste, which it passes onto Animal Cookies Strain. It also passes on its more extreme potency, which can weigh in at 28% THC.

  • Woody
  • Cherry

Animal Cookies strain brings together the best of both its parents, with its lemon and earthy taste from Fire OG and the sweet, citrus, pungent taste of Girl Scout Cookies. Prepare yourself for this strain, as it's definitely one which you'd want to enjoy with a flower vape.


Animal Cookies as Edible, Wax, Oil & Vape

You can get this strain in basically any format provided that you can make it yourself. The fact that the seeds are available means that you could use youtube guides to make this strain into whatever form you want. However, you must first grow the strain, which is a difficult task for new growers.

This strain is sometimes called Purple Animal Kush or Purple Animal Cookies because the buds often have a purple hue to them. Blue Animal Cookies and Lemon Animal Cookies, on the other hand, are completely different strains.

If you find that you’ve got super bad cottonmouth, just make yourself a cup of tea. You can make any tea really, but the best has to be simple with fresh mint. Mix with honey and then allow it to cool. Once cool, drink the whole thing at once, and your cottonmouth will disappear almost immediately.
