This sativa-dominant hybrid is a crossbreed of Granddaddy Purps (GDP), a famed indica, and Cherry Pie, itself a hybrid descendant of GDP. The exact balance of sativa and indica is unknown for this strain. Like its parents, Phantom Cookies is a California original, with roots in Mendocino County. It’s very high in CBD, a chemical used to treat seizures and other serious conditions. But it’s very low in THC, which rarely climbs above 12%. It works best as a pain reliever, but it’s also helpful with anxiety, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and spinal cord injuries. Dry mouth is the most likely side effect of this strain. Phantom Cookies has a strong citrus flavor, while its aroma combines earthiness, roasted nuts, and sweeter elements of berry and grape. A heavy layer of trichomes covers the bud, flecked with bright orange hairs. The high is mild, with a dose of euphoria and a clarity of thought. Creativity is enhanced. Phantom Cookies is commonly found in California, Colorado, Arizona, and the Pacific Northwest. It’s much less common in other places. This is an especially good strain for patients who need high doses of CBD, less so for those seeking the high.
