Strain Spotlight: GMO Cookies

GMO Cookies, sometimes known as Garlic Cookies or Chem Cookies, is an Indica-dominant strain revered for its potent effects. Users report a euphoric mental high followed by a powerful yet relaxing body high. 

The strong body-high makes GMO Cookies a popular option for those seeking help with pain management and anxiety relief. As a descendant of Girl Scout Cookies and Chemdawg, you can look forward to a pungent and recognizable scent profile. This iconic strain is most often attributed to breeder Mamiko Seeds, but this has not been confirmed. 

Continue reading to learn more about the strain GMO Cookies including how it will make you feel and what it smells, tastes, and looks like. 

What Does GMO Cookies Smell, Taste, and Look Like? 

As mentioned, GMO Cookies is a cross between Chemdawg and Girl Scout Cookies. This results in a thick and pungent smell similar to that of hot rotting coffee. You may also experience herbal, spicy, and diesel notes. This is one strain that may not be the best choice if you’re looking to be discreet. The almost overwhelming odor will stick around for a little while after smoking. 

The actual taste of the GMO Cookies strain is more appealing than the aromas described above. The flavor profile is best described as robust with a primary taste of savory garlic that is spicy on the exhale and sticks around on the tongue for a moment. On top of the deep garlic taste, discerning users will also notice notes of mushroom, garlic, and onion. You may also experience some fruity sweetness mostly stemming from Girl Scout Cookie parent. 

Aside from the taste and smell, the actual look of GMO Cookies flower is another reason users keep coming back for more. This particular strain often produces deep green buds with specks of orange and purple. You can also expect a deep blanket of fragile trichomes alluding to the overall potency of the strain. 

How Does a GMO Cookies High Make You Feel? 

The first thing you need to know about a GMO Cookies high is that it’s powerful. The THC content of this potent strain comes in on average at 23%, but there are other characteristics you should be aware of. Users often report a profound sense of relaxation that permeates through the body and leads to some sedation. This exhibits the traditional “indica-like effects,” but you’ll also notice a slight sense of euphoria. 

These factors make it a common choice among those searching for relief from pain, insomnia,  inflammation, depression, anxiety, and plenty more. We like to describe this indica-dominant high as one that can help ease tension without completely knocking the user out. With the being said, one of the best parts of GMO Cookies high is the deep sleep that ensues on the comedown. Users should prepare themselves for the powerful high, but those looking for a little sedation and tension relief can’t go wrong with this strain. 

How to Get the Benefits of GMO Cookies 

When it comes to getting the benefits from GMO Cookies, we like to believe the safest and most effective method of ingesting is through concentrates. With that said, you need to know that not all THC extracts are made the same. It’s best to choose concentrates that maintain all of the original terpenes and plant compounds from the original cannabis plant. This is otherwise known as a full or broad-spectrum extract. 

This allows for the perceived benefits of the Entourage Effect which you can learn more about here. The process of extracting THC and maintaining the full spectrum of plant chemicals is often referred to as fresh frozen live resin extract.

When extracted correctly and without adding in any additional filler terpenes, the result is a whole-plant concentrate that contains all the trichomes, terpenes, and cannabinoids within the flower. These trichomes are where a majority of THC, terpenes, and additional cannabinoids are stored. 

Unfortunately, the premium nature of live resin extracts leads to brands marketing their product as such even though they may refine their concentrate or add in outside terpenes. Below is a ceramic vape cartridge you can trust is true to the original aroma, content, and nature GMO Cookies plant


Long story short, GMO Cookies is a super popular strain featuring a pungent musky scent, energizing and anxiety-reducing characteristics, as well as the appearance of signature orange pistils. We suggest trying GMO Cookies to uplift your next hike, beach day, or spring cleaning session.
