Zookies is a bizarrely named, spicy, pain-relieving strain from the Cookie family of kush. This 50/50 balanced hybrid strain was created by Alien Labs and is a cross of Gorilla Glue #4 and Animal Cookies. Keep in mind the average THC level is around 24%, so unless you’re a long-time stoner, you may want to cancel your day plans after smoking this peppery strain.
Once you’ve got your hands on these sweet and spicy nugs, you’ll quickly understand what the hype is all about. Zookies has a distinct nutty flavour with hints of cookie dough and strong diesel. Floral notes, hints of coffee and chocolate, and the aforementioned spicy black pepper are all present as well. The scent highlights the taste perfectly, beginning with a dessert-like warmth, nuts, cream, and chocolate, and progressing to a peppery fuel scent. If there’s one reason to give this strain a chance, it’s the insane depth and complexity of the bud itself.
Aside from the taste and smell, those who have tried Zookies have stated that they love it for its ability to reduce pain throughout the body, whether that be joint, muscle, or just a regular ol’ headache. Kush critics have used this strain to combat depression and fatigue, proving it to be great energy booster as well. Zookies has even been claimed to help relieve menstrual cramps for some uterus-owners too! The high is long lasting and hard hitting, starting in the head and slowly making its way throughout your body. If you need to relax and relieve stress but still need to get things done, this elusive strain is where it’s at.
This strain can be quite difficult to grow due to a variety of reasons, the biggest being the huge collection of sparkling and sticky trichomes. Zookies is also very prone to mold when grown in humid conditions, so be sure to keep an eye on your plants if you live in a hot place. Whether you’re growing it or just smoking it, however, Zookies will get you where you need to be.
