Garlic Cookies (Hybrid)
Strain: Garlic Cookies
Contributor: Brett LaFey
This is a good-looking plant -- lightly-shaded green with some orange wisps, covered with crystals and white fuzz.
When it came to this strain, our interest was piqued by its name (because, ahem, we love garlic). And we absolutely could not believe that this flower actually did carry a garlic-like smell to our noses. It passed the smell test with flying colors, which is why we were so disappointed by the results once we started to smoke it.
Things were going well at first. The plant’s potpourri translated into a very rich flavor, a little spicy and a little earthy. To be honest, it was one of the best-tasting buds we had smoked in a while, and the smoke itself was very mild and crisp.
We weren’t feeling anything as we started smoking, so we kept puffing away, fully expecting this strain to sneak up on us. Instead, we just wound up being mildly, yet disappointingly stoned.
The sensation this plant unleashed is very mellow. We felt high, but not baked. Instead of making us feel ultra-focused, this strain sort of tuned out all the background noise. This Hybrid strain definitely leans towards Sativa-dominant, since we felt relaxed and calm, but weren’t getting any heady buzz or braindaze.

Long story short -- this was a promising purchase that wound up disappointing us. We recognize and appreciate that not all highs are created equal, and if anyone is looking for a very mellow, low-key strain, then Garlic Cookies might be the one for you. But for us, this was a little like drinking a weak cup of coffee -- it might have satisfied our appetite, but it left us hungry for more.

The interior of the store is big and completely wide open. As you check in at the front desk, you wait inside a small, roped-off space. After a brief moment, we were let out and allowed to roam about.
Their products are lined up along two walls. There’s flower, pre-rolls, edibles, tinctures, topicals, waxes, and CBD stuff inside a large L-shaped display case. Vape batteries and cartridges of various brands hang on the back wall.
We started with the flower, which is displayed in show-jars mounted to plaques that have not only name and strain info, but also keywords associated with the effects this strain produces. We thought this was cool, and extremely helpful to first-time shoppers. It takes a lot of the guesswork and mystery out of the shopping process, and cuts to the ultimate question: How do you want to feel when you take this product?
Guiding us as we answered that question was our budtender, who was a charming and energetic woman that welcomed us to the store. She gave us a quick rundown of the place, and allowed us to browse, but also stayed nearby to answer any questions. There were several other customers and employees in the shop with us while we visited, but we totally forgot about them due to our budtender’s attention.
After walking us through the products, we circled back to the flower to make our selection. Once again, our budtender proved to be super-informed. She not only broke down their classification system, but also pointed out that each grower was represented on the data plaque, as well. We noticed several of the plants came from the Herbarium, themselves, and she informed us that they did, in fact, grow their own stuff.
