Emperor Cookie Dough is a reasonably well-balanced hybrid with a 65/35 leaning towards sativa. This is an incredibly popular type of cannabis, largely because it offers both a warm indica hug and a cerebral burst of sativa energy. In addition to that, Emperor Cookie Dough was considered to be one of the strongest strains in the 2016 High Times. As it takes two dank strains and crosses them to make one dank monster strain, it’s a certified #dankenstein strain. It’s a potent, balanced, and very tasty strain that you don’t want to miss!
This strain is also sometimes called Imperial Cookies, Cookie Dough Cannabis strain or Cookie Dough Weed.

Emperor Cookie Dough strain: Indica or Sativa?Emperor Cookie Dough is a balanced hybrid. These are very sought-after strains, because they offer both the best effects from both branches of the cannabis tree. The potency of this strain is very high, leading some users to feel a little overwhelmed after smoking this strain. Read below for our tips on what to do if you start to feel the strain take over. Emperor Cookie Dough buds have a great tight, spherical shape. This makes it a perfect strain to grind up and stick inside your flower vaporiser.
Emperor Cookie Dough strain geneticsIf you know anything about cannabis, then you will have heard of Girl Scout Cookies. If you haven’t heard of Girl Scout Cookies, then you’re definitely in for a treat. It’s one of the best tasting strains in the business, and often gives its ‘children’ its taste and potency. Emperor Cookie Dough is no different, as this strain was created for potency and flavour. By crossing GSC with an OG strain, the original breeders of this strain made an absolute powerhouse of a strain. The two strains inside Emperor Cookie Dough are:
- Emperor OG
- Girl Scout Cookies
These two, when combined, make for a wild ride indeed!
Emperor Cookie Dough strain THC percentageAs mentioned previously, this is one of the strongest marijuana strains on the market. As such, it’s 100% not the best option for beginner stoners. The average sativa-dominant hybrid contains around 13% THC. The average Emperor Cookie Dough strain has about 35% THC. However, the absolute strongest phenotypes of this strain contains around 41% THC. This is enough to blow anyone’s head off, so please be careful. This is literally the definition of a one-hitter strain. Once you take one hit you’ll feel too stoned to have another one. You’ve been warned!
Emperor Cookie Dough strain priceThis is a dankenstein strain, whose original breeder is hard to pin down. The seeds are not available online, unless you want to buy some snake oil from a snake oil salesmen. As such, the price is incredibly high. That’s because it’s one of the strongest strains, it tastes great, and it’s very high in demand. In an LA dispensary it’s probably about $20 a gram. In a coffeeshop in Amsterdam, you’re likely to pay about $35 a gram. This is because the supply in Amsterdam is exceedingly low for these kinds of strains, and only the best of the best coffeeshops will have a strain like this. They know this, and therefore they charge whatever they want for these kinds of strains.
Emperor Cookie Dough strain tasteEmperor Cookie Dough inherits much of its taste profile from its Girl Scout Cookie parent. This makes it an incredibly tasty strain. As such, it’s not worth adulterating this strain with tobacco or papers. Your best bet is to either bong this strain, or, if you want to have the best taste possible, put it inside your trusted flower vaporiser. If you grind the buds up first, you’ll allow the best taste possible to shine through. You won’t regret smoking it this way. The full taste profile of Emperor Cookie Dough is:
Emperor Cookie Dough isn’t the best choice for making concentrates unless you somehow procure some seeds yourself. That is because you need a relatively large amount of the strain to make a good amount of concentrates, and as it’s such a rare (read: expensive) strain, this probably isn’t worth it. However, if you do somehow manage to get seeds or a clipping of this strain, the taste and potency of this strain make it an absolutely perfect choice for making into a concentrate.

Please don’t smoke this strain if you’re fairly new to cannabis. It would be like that first time you ever got drunk and you downed an entire bottle of vodka by yourself. Think about how well that turned out. THINK ABOUT IT. Yeah, we don’t want a repeat of that either. If, however, you’re an adept stoner and you’re looking for a sativa-dominant hybrid to help you with stress or depression, then Emperor Cookie Dough is definitely going to be one to try. It will help you with the stress and worries of depression because of its high THC percentage and balanced, albeit sativa-dominant, high.
If you do feel too stoned after lighting up, you can follow this guide on how to feel less stoned:
- Take a cold shower
- Drink a hot coffee
- Go for a run, go for a swim
- Simply relax in a room, lying down, and focus on your breathing
- Remember that it’s all in your head, and it’s just the weed making you feel bad
The flowering time of Emperor Cookie Dough is 52-56 days, making it a relatively quick grower. If you leave it for the full grow time you’re not going to regret it.
