Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is an Indica leaning hybrid cross whose genesis is murky and uncertain. With the hype that surrounded the immense popularity of Girl Scout Cookies, several phenotypes emerged. Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies being one of them. GSC is notorious for her hermaphroditical traits and the Thin Mint Phenotype in all probability is the result of a selfed seed that someone found in a bud of GSC. It has also been claimed that the Cookie Family (who discovered the original GSC) discovered Thin Mint GSC by ”crossing” an undisclosed inhouse strain, known only as “The Secret Sauce”, with Durban Poison and OG Kush. One can choose to believe this tale or not. Cookie Fam are not especially known for breeding and are looked on as average at best by their peers in this regard.
Cookie Family’s claim to fame is to have capitalized on what is no doubt an elite cannabis plant, the original GSC. To say that they skillfully bred her is simply untrue! The common consensus on the origins of GSC is that her creation was most probably an accidental pollination from hermaphrodite plants. For this reason, any talk of breeding when discussing Cookie Fam and the origins of Thin Mint GSC may be taken with a pinch of salt.
