Cherry Cookies has a high that comes on quickly. Smokers are almost immediately struck by a feeling of altered perception — external stimuli can take on new significance and thoughts may flow in a freely-associative way. Visual distortions are also commonly reported, giving Cherry Cookies’ initial effects a rather psychedelic feel. Within short order, the strain’s indica relaxation — to this point, only slightly discernible — creeps forward and spreads through the smoker’s core and limbs. A slight heaviness or pressure may emerge in the forehead and around the temples. This even blend of cerebral insight and physical sedation makes Cherry Cookies perfectly suited to introspective activities like listening to music or taking a nature walk. Cherry Cookies can also facilitate stimulating conversation. Because it is neither overly energizing nor overly sedative, this strain is appropriate for use at any time of day.
Just as Cherry Cookies has many users for recreational smokers, it also has a variety of potential benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its enduring relaxation can soothe aches and pains, whether temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like lupus or arthritis. Anti-inflammatory properties in the strain’s genetics may also relieve anything from headaches to indigestion. Psychologically speaking, this strain’s overall easygoing vibes can temporarily blunt the acute symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Because Cherry Cookies does not typically lead to intense, recursive thinking or paranoia, it is a good option for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
