When it comes to the thousands of cannabis strains you could smoke, there’s always some standouts that you should rock with no matter how old they get. Scooby Snacks is one of those. It’s some straight up fire that will have you slumped over feeling sleepy and relaxed. The potency is high, and the effects are crisp.

If you’ve been searching for information about the strain, here’s some of the reasons why you should definitely try smoking (or even growing) Scooby Snacks.

What is the Scooby Snacks cannabis strain?

Scooby Snacks was created by the geniuses over at Archive Seed Bank in Portland. They are responsible for creating many of the world’s most popular strains, like Do-Si-Dos, Moonbow, and Rainbow Belts. 

Plenty of your favorite brands source their strains/clones/seeds from Archive Seed Bank, so you’ve probably been smoking their work without even knowing it.

Scooby Snacks is an indica-dominant cross of Platinum Girl Scout Cookies with Face Off OG, two Kush-forward slappers that can floor even the most experienced cannabis consumers (see The Bluntness guide on ‘greening out’ if you ever do get too high).

How to grow Scooby Snacks

Scooby Snacks is considered a pretty easy cannabis plant to grow. It can flourish inside or outside. Weedmaps suggests that the strain grows tall in height with a medium-to-high yield. It has a longer flowering time, between 7 and 9 weeks. 

If grown properly, Scooby Snacks flower should be dominated by vibrant purple hues complemented by the usual green color of cannabis.

According to Way of Leaf, “[Scooby Snacks] needs a temperate environment, though it is resistant to mold and mildew. It is hardy, and a bit of humidity won’t ruin the harvest. Growers should try to sustain an atmosphere that is relatively dry and warm as well.”

How does the Scooby Snacks strain smell and taste?

Scooby Snacks has heavy OG Kush genetics, and the way the strain smells and tastes definitely reflects that. It has a mix of piney, citrus, gassy, and earthy notes to it. Its breeder says it smells like “butter cookies.” 

On the taste, it will come with that piney and gassy vibe that lets you know that Original Kush is definitely part of Scooby Snacks’ ancestry. All of these aromas and flavors come from a terpene profile that is dominant in limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene.

On Weedmaps, the top three reported aromas for Scooby Snacks are earthy, pungent, and sage. On Leafly, the top three reported aromas for Scooby Snacks are earthy, sweet, and pine.

What do Scooby Snacks effects feel like? 

Personally speaking, Scooby Snacks is super potent, man. It is one of those strains that people who smoke every day reach for because we know it will provide the level of euphoria that we’re looking for. 

When consuming the strain, you should begin to feel a heavy stimulation in the head that will slowly engulf your whole body in a THC-induced comfort blanket. In the end, you’ll find yourself looking for a rocking chair to sit back in for the next few hours (see The Bluntness guide on ‘set and setting’ to get the most out of any cannabis experience). 

On Weedmaps, the top general effects of Scooby Snacks are relaxed, hungry, and euphoric. On Leafly, the top reported effects for Scooby Snacks are relaxed, happy, and euphoric. On Wikileaf, the top reported effects for Scooby Snacks are focused, relaxed, and happy.

With those effects comes the usual “downsides” of consuming cannabis, like red eyes and dry mouth. To avoid these, just keep some cold water on hand. It’s important to stay hydrated when using cannabis products.

Is Scooby Snacks a body high or head high?

With all cannabis, it’s important to remember that the effects vary by person. What’s a head high for you could be a body high for others. Some highs could also be both. This is because we all have individual endocannabinoid systems that process cannabis compounds a certain way. That said, reviews on Scooby Snacks indicate that it is usually a mix of both a head and body high.

Respect My Region says that “[Scooby Snacks] brings the potency that its predecessors are known for in the form of a spacey head high.”

Leafly reviewer p........3 says “Scooby Snacks is fire! It tastes sweet and piney with hints of chocolate when vaped. It has excellent mind and body effects. Very stoney and one of my favorites!”

Leafly reviewer R........k says “After smoking one hit [of Scooby Snacks], felt a tingling sensation behind my eyes and in my head, and a small smile creeping up my face. My mind feels energized, yet I don't feel stressed, and my body feels relaxed, but I can still focus as long as I'm not learning a brand new task. Took away a lot of body pain.”

The best way to know how Scooby Snacks’ cannabinoids and terpenes will affect your body is to consume it and journal about the way you feel. Different doses of cannabis can provide different experiences, so make sure to pay attention to how much you smoke as well. Now, get out there and find some Scooby Snacks.
