When it comes to naming cannabis varieties, we can say the sky is the limit. Evidently, the creativity of a breeder comes into play during this process. Some breeders prefer to keep it simple and straightforward while others choose to go a little over the top which is also not entirely a bad thing.
Some strains are named after the place they were first developed. Others take one that closely describes their flavors and aroma while the rest are more of a play on words just to give a really good impression to prospective users.
Most cannabis names explicitly describe what users can expect out of the strain. However, other strains surprise users with their outstanding potency that somewhat contradicts to their seemingly sweet and innocent names. Perhaps, the saying that goes: don’t judge a book by its cover, also applies to these varieties.
This is the case of the strain named Sugar Cookie. It has a rather harmless name that, most often that not, misleads users into underestimating its strength. While it can be likened to an actual cookie regarding aroma and flavors, in reality, it is one of the most potent ones around and not as innocent as a cookie.
To prove that point, the following sections below will provide some detailed information about the strain’s most notable characteristics.
The first breeder of Sugar Cookie remains to be unknown. Although, at present, many breeders have attempted to recreate the strain using the same parents. Others, on the other hand, have decided to give it a little twist and merely retained the name of the strain.
Speaking of lineage, Sugar Cookie is said to be the child strain of Blue Hawaiian, Sensi Star, and Crystal Gayle. Contrary to the expectations of some cannabis users, Sugar Cookie is not from the same lineage as the infamous Girl Scout Cookies. The name is derived from the strain’s delicious aroma and flavors.
The powerful body buzz of Sugar Cookie, on the other hand, is effective in relieving pain brought about by different health conditions including simple headaches and eye pressure. Also, its sedative-like properties may help induce sleepiness in insomniacs and those who simply need a long and relaxing rest after a stressful day.
