Zookies Strain — Get Lifted With the Zestiest of Cookies

When you’re looking for a balanced, relaxing high that’ll get you just energized and focused enough to tackle your to-do list, give the Zookies strain a try.

This balanced hybrid bud (sometimes referred to as Zoo Cookies) is pretty potent, but its effects are levelheaded enough for daytime use. And although Zookies delivers the soothing body high that’s typical of a strong indica; it’s widely known for giving users a functional, creative, motivating push that’s great for staying productive.

      Zookies Strain Information

      Zookies is 50% indica and 50% sativa with an average THC content of 23% to 25% and almost no CBD. This strain produces a super-uplifting high that kicks off with a fast-hitting rush of mental euphoria that’ll bliss you out for hours on end.

      A calming body buzz that’ll relax you from head to toe quickly follows, but it’s not so soothing that it’ll sedate you. While this bud’s indica effects are definitely pronounced, its sativa side is strong enough to keep you from sticking to your couch.

      Both medical and recreational tokers turn to Zookies when they’re looking for a plant-based fix for pain, cramps, nausea, depression, stress, muscle spasms, social anxiety, and low appetite.
