Cannabis Strain Review

OG Kush vs. Girl Scout Cookies [Battle of the Titans]

These two strains are among the most popular in the world of weed. OG Kush is a legendary Sativa dominant hybrid with a hefty THC content of 24%, while Girl Scout Cookies is a multiple Cannabis Cup award-winning indica hybrid strain with an eye-popping 28% THC content. As awesome as both strains are, we can’t get enough of doing head-to-head pot comparisons. So, in this piece, we try to compare OG Kush and Girl Scout Cookies to see which strain, if any, has the overall edge. Bear in mind that GSC began as a cross of OG Kush, Cherry Kush, and Durban Poison.

Which Strain is More Potent?

OG Kush

This is a balanced hybrid strain which rewards users with an intense head high and strong euphoria. After a few smokes, you should feel happy and relaxed, but couch-lock is likely, so use it in the evening.

Girl Scout Cookies

This is an uplifting and relaxing strain which hits you with a full-on body high. While you may feel a little energy boost, Girl Scout Cookies will eventually cause you to sink into your sofa. It is very much a night-time strain, and its powerful effects can last for hours.

Winner: OG Kush

Although Girl Scout Cookies has the higher THC rate by percentage, we find that OG Kush is the more potent strain with more intense and longer-lasting effects.

Medicinal Benefits

OG Kush

This strain is known for its ability to quell chronic pain, and it is also used for individuals with mental disorders. When it comes to chronic pain, OG Kush does an outstanding job of numbing the site of pain when smoked. For insomnia, though, we recommend edibles. However, while OG Kush is used for depression and anxiety, its potency means you must be wary.

Girl Scout Cookies

Once again, this is the go-to strain if you have severe and chronic pain. If you have nausea, it is best to smoke Girl Scout Cookies, but people with a social anxiety disorder would be better served with edibles as it’s generally easier to determine a precise dose.

Winner: Tie

These strains are useful for a number of similar symptoms including ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, and Migraines. While OG Kush is better for hyperactivity, Girl Scout Cookies is better for Insomnia.

Side Effects

OG Kush

As well as dry mouth and dry eyes, excessive usage of OG Kush could lead to paranoia. However, these side effects are easy to navigate. Simply drink more water, use eye drops and experiment with the dosage. The goal is always to enjoy the benefits with the most minimum dose possible. Using too much OG Kush to treat an anxiety disorder is a bad idea.

Girl Scout Cookies

Although it is also unwise to use excess GSC, it is less prone to serious side effects. Dry mouth is the biggest concern, and it is easy enough to handle that problem through hydration. Incidentally, we found that drinking orange juice boosts the high because Vitamin C increases the levels of THC in your body.

Winner: Girl Scout Cookies

GSC scores a marginal victory here, but OG Kush is fine to use as long as you’re sensible and know your limits.

Looks, Taste & Aroma

OG Kush

The fresh scent of OG Kush reminds you of Link from Zelda as he wanders through the Lost Woods. Once you get over the pine and earth aroma, you are hit with a beautifully fresh and natural flavor with hints of citrus and the slightest hint of spiciness. OG Kush has the typical weed appearance with a yellow-green leaf color and crystalline trichomes that are heavily visible on the buds.

Girl Scout Cookies

GSC’s minty smell is synonymous with the strain, and it offers a lovely sweet flavor that sends you to heaven and back. It is an unusual strain in terms of appearance as it combines purple, green and orange colors. Also, it’s worth noting that GSC is a very distinctive and sought-after strain.

Winner: OG Kush

While you will enjoy either strain immensely, we have to go with OG Kush on this occasion, and veteran weed lovers tend to agree.

The cost of OG Kush has been falling in recent times, and you should be able to procure a gram for around $11 and an ounce for $239. As you might expect, though, it is more expensive in certain areas. San Francisco, for example, appears to be the most expensive at $304 an ounce. According to High Times, on the other hand, OG Kush cost $280 an ounce in Louisiana in December 2017.

Meanwhile, residents of Massachusetts have to pay an astronomical $450 an ounce!

Winner: OG Kush

OG Kush is considerably cheaper in most places, but if you love GSC, you won’t mind paying the few extra dollars.

Growing

OG Kush

It is a fast selling strain, but OG Kush is not easy to grow. It requires close monitoring because it is susceptible to disease. After a 9-10 weeks growth period, you should get up to 18 ounces per square meter indoors, or about 16 ounces outdoors.

Girl Scout Cookies

GSC is generally easier to grow than OG Kush. While it has a similar growth period, it is less likely to succumb to diseases and mildew. Each GSC plant yields up to two ounces, and if you use hydroponic methods, you will see excellent growth.

Winner: Girl Scout Cookies

GSC offers an excellent yield and is a little easier to grow.

Final Thoughts on OG Kush & Girl Scout Cookies

In what is truly a clash of the Titans, we find it incredibly difficult to declare a ‘winner,’ so…. we won’t! OG Kush is slightly more potent, cheaper, and has a marginally superior taste. However, Girl Scout Cookies is easier to grow and has fewer side effects. They are both world-renowned strains for a reason: Exceptional quality, high THC content, and relative ease of purchase in states where weed is legal for medicinal and recreational use.
