Strain Spotlight: Monster Cookies

THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

Everybody loves Girl Scout Cookies, and Monster Cookies is a fantastic variation of the strain. While its genetic heritage isn’t perfectly clear – some believe that it’s a new strain of Girl Scout Cookies while others say that it’s a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Grand Daddy Purple – one thing is clear about Monster Cookies: This is a delicious strain with top-notch relaxing properties that can combat pain as well as it does anxiety.

If it is indeed descended in part from Grand Daddy Purple, then it really shows. In addition to being very relaxing – Leafly gives it perfect marks for relaxing and high grades in happy and euphoric – Monster Cookies is one of the best performing strains for pain relief that we have on our menu, which isn’t surprising considering Grand Daddy Purple is famous for its pain-relieving and relaxing properties, which Monster Cookies shares in good measure.

Monster Cookies is an incredibly effective strain for pain relief, and is overall a high-quality and enjoyable strain. It’s a hybrid strain that really has the best qualities of both indicas and sativas. It’s not very hunger-inducing either, which could be a plus or a minus depending on your needs (and wants) for a medicinal cannabis strain. But if you are looking to increase appetite as well, you could try mixing it with a second strain.

Strain Spotlight: Kosher Kush

Kosher Kush

While this extremely potent indica strain isn’t strictly kosher — it’s not produced under rabbinical supervision — its relaxing, happiness-elevating and sleep-inducing properties make it a perfect part of a day of rest, whether it falls on the Sabbath or not. For patients suffering from insomnia, sleep apnea or general anxiety, especially the kind of anxiety that keeps you up at night, Kosher Kush is one of the best indica strains out there.

Kosher Kush is a purebred indica varietal, and it’s an absolutely perfect example of its strain. Its high THC content delivers a heavy and thoroughly relaxing high. In particular, Kosher Kush ranks among the best strains for insomnia that you can find. Leafly gives it a perfect score on relaxed and an incredibly high score for sleepy.

This is pretty much the ideal nightcap for anyone who needs help with sleep problems. Unlike some classic sedating strains, Kosher Kush does not induce much hunger, which is a good quality in a strain meant to treat insomnia because eating right before bed reduces your quality of sleep. Of course, that’s just part of its medicating potential, and just one of the strains on our menu that can help with sleep and much more.
