GMO Weed Strain
Don’t let the name fool you — there’s nothing genetically modified in this dynamite weed strain, just really good genes taken from two of the most popular cannabis strains available today. The GMO strain (aka “GMO Cookies” ) is a potent indica-dominant hybrid that combines a fuel aroma and sweet flavor with a high that is relaxing, euphoric, and just the thing to take your mind off all this mess, if only temporarily. Here’s what makes the GMO Cookies strain so special.
Lineage and general info
The breeders at Divine Genetics are often hailed as the creators of GMO (which is also known as “GMO Garlic Cookies” or “Garlic Cookies” by dispensaries that don’t like putting the word “GMO” on their products). On their website the breeders hype the strain in a rather strange way, saying “one bowl too many of this strain is like dropping your brain in a wood chipper, slowing you down to half the pace of the rest of the world.”
Obviously, you shouldn’t try that at home, but it seems Divine Genetics is just being upfront about this heavyweight strain, saying “even when used in moderation, GMO can be disorienting for low tolerances, know your limits.”
But not so fast, the origins of this strain, like countless others, is shrouded in mystery. Many other sources credit the Spanish seed bank Mamiko Seeds with inventing GMO cookies, as well as a breeder named Skunkmasterflex.
But what’s this strain actually made of? According to Divine Genetics, “Chem Cookies” is a mix of Chemdawg and Girl Scout Cookies, two of the most acclaimed strains anywhere. Combine these together and what do you have? A strain that is “both pungent and sweet, gassy and spicy…and very dangerous.”
The strain grows extra frosty buds that are somewhat dark green and purple, and replete with brilliant little orange hairs. And the high? It’s not quite getting tossed into a wood chipper brain-first, but GMO is a high THC heavy-hitter that makes its presence known.
Cannabinoids and terpenes in GMO
There are thousands of cannabis chemovars out there, and no real standards as to how to identify them — basically anyone can grow anything and call it whatever they want. In other words — there are better ways to choose a strain than on the name alone.
The chemical profile you see below is an average of laboratory tests for products called GMO so it’s just an estimate of what you might find when you buy GMO.
