Cookies and Dream is a potent Sativa-leaning strain that delivers a
head-slamming high at the onset. Within minutes after the first two or three
puffs, a tingling euphoria that stimulates the mind. It inspires a sense of
happiness that radiates outwards as a broad smile.
The mental clarity is a wonderful addition to one’s day. Along with the
upbeat disposition, it creates a new path for thoughts to flow and form freely.
It sparks creativity as an influx of ideas that enhance one’s focus.
Although an hour or two has passed, the Sativa-leaning strain continues to deliver an energizing buzz. It replaces tiredness and removes tightness in the muscles. As it continues to invigorate the body, users move freely without restrictions while completing tasks or doing light physical activities.
Overall, Cookies and Dream is best used during the first half of the day. It has an impressive wake-and-bake quality that accompanies one on a productive day. Used at night, it can keep users awake throughout the evening.
Cookies and Dream has a pungent scent that fills the room once a bag of its buds is opened. It has a subtle sweetness overridden by strong notes of citrus. Breaking the nugs apart then combusting it reveals a thick smoke with a tangy end.
Cookies and Dream entices the palate with the tangy taste of citrus. Accentuating the sourness is the sweet undertone of ripe fruit that washes over the mouth with its thick and creamy smoke. On the exhale, it leaves a tropical aftertaste that lingers for hours after the last puff.
Dryness is a typical side reaction of smoking marijuana as cannabinoids interfere with moisture production. Hence, users can expect a mild case of red eyes and a cottonmouth that lasts for hours. It is sometimes accompanied by a subtle feeling of anxiety when one uses beyond tolerance. As such, users should always keep the dosage within moderation.
Stress, in chronic levels, can exacerbate or lead to the early onset of
various health issues including hypertension and depression. Thus, it is
necessary for people to release accumulated stress once in a while. To this
end, Cookies and Dream works perfectly.
Its happy high delivers a calming euphoria that eases the overwhelming dread and anxiety triggered by stressors. It uplifts the mood while temporarily making users forget about worries and feelings of hopelessness. Because of this, it can be used as an anti-depressant to manage symptoms of mental health issues like depression and PTSD.
Apart from inducing its head high, the same psychoactive compound also
has potent analgesic properties. It relaxes the muscles with a soothing buzz
that begins in the temples before it envelops the body in deep relaxation.
Meanwhile, its anti-inflammatory properties relieve redness and swelling.
Cookies and Dream has the typical structure of a Sativa. It grows tall,
a lanky structure, with thin branches and stalks. Not to mention, when
flowering, it yields buds that stretch out from side to side albeit a little
denser than fluffy.
However, like other tropical strains, it has a propensity for
Mediterranean weather. Because of this, it has trouble adjusting to the colder
climate of the northern hemisphere. Growers should ensure to plant Cookies and
Dream in a well-lit area. It should also be protected against frost and other
harsh weather by installing a temporary enclosing.
Indoors, growers will need to top the plant early to manage its height.
Keeping it short will prevent it from interfering with light and air
circulation in the grow room. Removing dying fan leaves and branches will
distribute nutrients to healthier budding sites.
Growers can significantly improve yields by utilizing the Screen of Green method. It requires placing a screen over the top of the plant and weaving the branches through to distribute light evenly. Pruning it will also create more budding sites that produce more buds.

Cookies and Dream has a long flowering period of 10 to 12 weeks. It awards patients growers with 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter after the long wait. Under expert care, it can yield even higher.
Like many strains, Cookies and Dream likes to bask in the sunlight. As such, it will need ample time to flower when it is cultivated in the northern hemisphere. Growers can expect it to blossom around the last week of October to the middle of November with each plant producing at least 16 ounces of buds.
