GMO Cookies Strain Flavors

It’s always crucial to like the taste of a cannabis strain, and the GMO Cookies strain is a strong choice if you enjoy a savory taste. The flavor, which often shoots through into your nose, is spicy, garlicky, and pungent. Many smokers describe the flavor as somewhat unusual; in fact, some users report an overwhelmingly potent taste of coffee.

However, although you wouldn’t expect coffee and garlic to mix well, the two flavors bounce off each other, leading to a surprisingly sweet taste.

Of course, you’ll love this strain if you’re a big coffee drinker. Many users also report earthy and diesel flavors.

What GMO Cookies Smell Like

The most prominent aroma from the strain is freshly peeled garlic. You’ll quickly notice fresh cloves of crushed, slightly spicy garlic. However, it doesn’t take after your tasty garlic bread fragrance. Instead, it

smells like raw garlic after removing it from the head.

Similarly, you’ll also smell coffee on the back end of the aroma. As a result, the aromas are unusual and confusing, but they work together perfectly.
