[Review] - Cannabis Flower: Cookie Wreck

I've saved the most potent strain for my final review in this series:  Cookie Wreck.  This strain is a hybrid cross between Trainwreck & Girl Scout Cookie--two powerhouses in their own right.  It was created by CannaVenture Seeds & is promoted as a pain-relieving relaxant that's best reserved for night-time use by veteran tokers due to its high THC content (upwards of 20% on average).

I originally wanted Sequoia Strawberry but they were fresh out at the dispo, so they substituted Cookie Wreck.  Not optimal since I'm more of a non-limonene Sativa lover, but what they hey?  I was a fan of Girl Scout Cookie when I lived on the West Coast so might as well give this a try.  I got a gram for $5.  Upon popping the lid, I'm greeted by a stout stench of overripe citrus fruit & skunk that actually does smell a bit like vanilla cookies when broken up.  My sample contains a whopping 25.9% THC & 0.1% CBD; the most prominent terps are limonene, b-caryophyllene & humulene.  I'm no limonene fan so whether I'll like this strain remains to be seen.  Terpenes are the metric by which I predict which strains I'll like.  I suggest you do the same.

It's poorly dried which is a bummer.  (What's up with these medical strains not being up to par right now?  Nobody wants to roll wet weed up in a joint but I try my best).  The flowers are compact & fat like Indicas, though she's described as a 'nighttime Hybrid' on  Since limonene is the most abundant terpene, I assume Cookie Wreck will cause some drowsiness because that tends to be the effect I get despite it being promoted as an alertness aid.  Hence why I avoid it.  I hate being tired.  But I attempt to go into this with an open mind, not reading any reviews before trying her out.  I never do anyway because it's too easy to influence the experience.

But I digress.

The joint burnt erratically but eventually evened out by the end.  I could already feel myself getting wasted by the last 1/3rd of the roach so I put it out a bit prematurely.  Usually when I get this high there's some anxiety, but not this time.  I went inside & watched a bunch of Youtube vids while giggling happily--totally immersed.  My body is deeply relaxed but not tired & I feel kinda horny.  This is a great mashup of heavy body effects & mental alertness, though it leans more toward the relaxing end of the spectrum.  Can definitely feel the Girl Scout Cookie influence in there.

The comedown is smooth & gentle.  No moodiness or unwanted sedation.  I'm pleasantly surprised by this strain as I'm usually not a big hybrid fan.  The lack of paranoia & sleepiness is awesome given the high limonene content.  I'm giving Cookie Wreck a 4.9 of 5 stars for potency, quality of effects & price.  I'd recommend it for anyone who wants a social lubricant or something to unwind with after a hard day, or anybody with a high tolerance.  That 25% THC content is coming through like a ton of bricks.  The high is lasting a long time too.  Really getting my money's worth with this strain.

After a second go-round with it, I'm confirming what I thought the first time:  Cookie Wreck is unadulterated FUN.  Don't pass this by if you run into it, especially if you're a fan of Girl Scout Cookie.  While high THC isn't always an indicator of a pleasant experience, with Cookie Wreck it is.  This is my favorite strain of the 5 I picked up this time which I was not expecting.  Might have to open my mind to more hybrids or, dare I say, limonene-rich strains?  😲
