Zookies is a crazy-named, peppery, cramp-relieving strain from the Cookie family. Alien Labs created this 50/50 balanced hybrid strain from Gorilla Glue #4 and Animal Cookies. Be warned that it sits in the mid-20s for THC so only users with a good amount of experience should apply for a job at Zookies. The high lasts long and hard in your head, calming and distracting you, and then progressing through the rest of your body. An appealing aroma tops the list of reasons people keep coming back for Zookies.
The strain’s terpene profile includes a healthy dose of Caryophyllene, which is where the strain brings in the flavor of black pepper, which will sit right on the tip of your tongue and fight inflammation. Those with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) can make great use of Caryophyllene. The other terpene is the citrusy antibacterial terpene called Limonene.
The plant grows in dense, round, dark green and purple nugs. Its amber hairs are thin and the trichomes are a thick and opaque white. The strain is difficult to grow due to its collection of sticky trichomes and the size of the colas. In humid growing conditions, the strain is very susceptible to growths of mold, which makes it imperative to monitor humidity closely for your Zookies crop.
