GMO/Garlic cookies is a potent indica-hybrid strain with complicated roots tracing back to multiple renowned breeding sources. Originally created by Mamiko Seeds through crossing Girl Scout Cookies and Chem D, this flower was initially called D Cookies, then Chem Cookies, before eventually being relabelled as GMO by prominent grower Skunkmasterflex.
The strain gained popularity from its high percentages of THC and the uniquely pungent profile it carried, and was later supposedly improved upon by Divine Genetics who made the same cross using a specific phenotype (Chemdawg #4) to create a hybrid of a hybrid which was dubbed Garlic Cookies, also sometimes being called Chem Cookies. Because of their basically identical genetics, and possessing only minor variations between the two, these hybrids have now become almost universally accepted as the same strain, which helps to explain the long, confusing name of the product.
This particular batch was grown indoors and produced by Northern California’s Deli, a partner of San Jose based distributor Caliva, who’ve made their mark providing quality cannabis products at affordable prices across California.
Let’s see how this compares to Reveur’s Triangle Mints or the affordable Nutter Budder from Evidence.

This bag had a whole lot of deep skunk to it, no doubt. There was the obvious strong garlic and spice scents, sporadically mixed with mild onion, coffee, earthy herbs, and a splash of diesel. The scent was both savory and zesty, despite the slight chemical edge, and basically very similar to ordering a Denver omelette at a truck stop diner.
The coloring of the soft, spade-like buds had varying degrees of lime and olive green, caked with an overabundance of bright copper hairs and drenched in a sea of light amber pistils. They were a bit leafy but had decent form overall and maintained a nice fluffiness from being well-packaged when fresh.
The initial taste had a lot of the same strong garlic base, backed by a sort of cheesy funk and earthy mushroom tone, along with varied herbal notes. As I let the nuances work themselves around, I also got hints of coffee, onion, and a touch of sweaty gas. The flavor here was as strong as the potency and definitely not for the faint of heart, or tastebuds.
Having just under 29% THC with a price tag of $45 for 7 grams, I found the effects of this GMO Cookies strain to be quick and quite strong. This is definitely a super stony high, making it ideal for those folks looking to be almost completely immobilized and incapacitated by their weed. The buzz was extremely indica-dominant, instantly melting away all stress and physical discomfort, leaving me stuck in place on the couch for quite a while pondering the age-old question of whether or not I should eventually get up and make that omelette.
