Dosido or Do-Si-Dos is an indica-dominant hybrid, which shares a lot of its best qualities with the world-renowned Girl Scout Cookies strain. You will recognise the bud structure, the trichomes, and the hairs that cover Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) when you look at its child, Dosidos. The flavour is probably the most important part of this strain, which it definitely inherited from GSC. This makes it a perfect strain to get your trusty flower vaporiser out for. Enjoy both indica and sativa effects as you relax and feel euphoric at the same time.
This strain is also sometimes called Dosey Do, Girl Scout Cookies Do Si Dos, Cookie Face strain, Peanut Butter strain, or Raspberry Cookies strain.

Dosido is one of those magical strains that sits in the very middle between sativa and indica. These are amongst the most sought after strains in the world for a variety of reasons, which we will get into a bit later. The main thing you need to know for now is that these strains are popular for both medicinal use and for recreational use. As such, Dosido is a popular, well-balanced indica strain. The strain itself is very potent, and you can see this on the trichomes that cover the strain as well as from the smell of it. The popcorn-shaped plant buds, which are bright green, look ripe for grinding. To fully appreciate this strain you should definitely grind it first, which will allow for all of the goodness to take full form.
Dosido Strain: indica or sativa?
Dosido Strain geneticsIt’s hard to say which seed or breeding company originally came up with the idea of Dosido. Thankfully however, the parentage of this strain is well-documented:
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Face Off OG strain
Girl Scout Cookies is an exceptional strain known around the world. Face Off strain is known for being a strong OG Kush Phenotype. Thus, a lot of people call Dosido something like Dosido OG. Some breeders have even gone as far as to remake Dosido but with one of the even more popular GSC phenotypes, such as Thin Mint Cookies or Platinum Cookies.
Dosido Strain THC percentageThis is where this strain really excels. If you know anything about weed, you will know that OG Kush is often used for its exceptionally high THC percentage. This is why many breeders wanting to create a dankenstein will turn to OG Kush and its THC-heavy relatives. Dosido is no different. The average balanced hybrid has around 13% THC, whereas the average Dosido strain has a whopping 24%. The stronger phenotypes can sometimes test at 30%, which is amongst the highest THC percentages available in buds. Now that you know this, please exercise caution if you’re a relatively new stoner. This strain can truly knock your socks off.
Dosido Strain priceAlthough the seeds are available online, this strain is still considered to be an exceptional strain. As such, the price is reasonably high, although not ridiculous. In a dispensary in North America, you’re looking at spending $15 for a gram of Dosido. In Amsterdam, the strain is a bit harder to find, and you’ll probably have to pay about $20 a gram.
Dosido Strain tasteAn OG Kush phenotype crossed with Girl Scout Cookies, from this information alone you know that we have a tasty strain on our hands. Definitely one for the flower vaporiser, Dosido’s taste profile is:
GSC has some landrace genetics inside it (Durban Poison) and Faceoff OG is an OG Kush phenotype. These flavours brought together make for a great tasting strain that shouldn't be underestimated.
Dosido Strain oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.
Stickevape has Dosido as one of their options, but, obviously, this is a company that is only available in North America. Dosido is popular amongst concentrate makers because it’s a boutique strain with a great taste and the THC percentage is very high. These are both qualities that all concentrate makers look for in strains. You could also attempt to make the concentrates yourself, however, making Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is considered very dangerous, so please exercise extreme caution.
You can also make any strain you like into an edible. There are two ways to do this. First is to use your Already Vaped Bud (AVB) from your vaporiser and mixing it with either a fat or an oil. This is definitely the easiest way, and (although it may seem strange) the AVB is actually still incredibly potent marijuana. This can knock your socks off, so definitely be careful. The other method is to first cook your weed. This is called decarboxylation, and fully activates the potency of your edibles.

Dosido is a classic example of a 50/50 hybrid. As such, it’s considered to be one of the best strains for curbing depression. If you can imagine getting a warm body hug from an indica whilst also feeling the absolute euphoria of a sativa, then you can begin to understand why Dosido is a depression curber. Furthermore, this strain will melt stress. However, it could leave you feeling a little overwhelmed. If this is the case, then you can follow these tips to stop you from feeling so high:
- Take a cold shower
- Drink a hot coffee
- Take a few moments to lie down and breathe
The flowering time of Dosido is about 8-9 weeks.

Dosido flowering marijuana tipsThis strain grows a lot like Girl Scout Cookies but is slightly taller. It’s a fairly difficult strain to grow and can be grown much more easily inside than outside. As you can see in the pictures below that this strain also reacts very well to Screen of Green or Sea of Green growing techniques. You may also need a carbon air filter or an exhaust fan, due to the exceptionally pungent smell this strain puts out while growing.

What is the Dosido strain?
An exceptional dankenstein strain, Dosido was bred for both potency and flavour. By crossing two OG Kush relatives, the potency truly shines through. However, by also mixing in one of the most recognisable strains when it comes to taste, the breeders of this strain managed to create a truly remarkable cut. This strain is a perfectly balanced hybrid, which should definitely be enjoyed inside a flower vape.
