Is Thin Mint Cookies Sativa or Indica?
Thin Mint Cookies is a balanced hybrid that comes in at 50% Indica and 50% Sativa. It creates a blend of effects that are great for medicinal users, as well as recreational smokers who want a spark of creativity and a dose of euphoria without being put to sleep.
Terpenes and Cannabinoid Content of Thin Mint Cookies
The THC content of Thin Mint Cookies is around 20% to 25%, putting it on the heavy side. As far as the flavors and aromas are concerned, it has a lot in common with Girl Scout Cookies.
There is a strong sweetness here with notes of vanilla and brown sugar. But the flavor is enhanced by the addition of floral and minty notes, not unlike the Thin Mint Cookies after which it is named.
The CBD levels aren’t great, so if you’re looking for a cannabis strain that’s loaded with both CBD and THC, this is not the one for you.
