The Garanimals weed strain is a thing of beauty, thanks to Cannarado Genetics. It is equal parts potent and delicious, with a THC level ranging from 20% – 30%. That’s because parent strains Animal Cookies and Grape Pie are just the tip of the iceberg in a long lineage of top dog names. Garanimals’ ancestry includes Hindu Kush, Durban Poison, Cherry Pie, and Grandaddy Purple, to name just a few. These parent strains’ effects are as indisputable as their origins are ambiguous.

The exact Indica/Sativa split of the Garanimals weed strain is difficult to pin down. Some strains have a balanced 50/50 split, while others are 75/25 Indica leaning. Regardless of the actual ratio, just one hit of a Garanimals joint is enough to know this hybrid is Indica-dominant through and through. Its top terpenes include Limonene, Caryophyllene, and Myrcene, complementing each other exquisitely to ensure a care-free, tranquil high that trickles through from head to toe. Better yet, both Myrcene and Caryophyllene are rich in anti-inflammatory properties that go a long way in combating body aches and pains.
In addition to its alluring effects, the Garanimals plant is a beauty that’s difficult to ignore. Its broad, fluffy nugs are tightly compacted to bestow a thicket of rich emerald green underlain with magenta, accentuated with bright orange pistils, and dripping in silvery-violet crystalline trichomes.

Garanimals Strain Effects
The first thing to know about Garanimals is that it doesn’t play. Garanimals strain effects begin almost immediately and will have you happily couch-locked in no time. Myrcene acts as a regulator between the terpenes and cannabinoids, enhancing or reducing their effects. The result is a full-body high coupled with a mild yet satisfying cerebral buzz.
Keep this one on hand for anything moody or even high levels of stress. The calming euphoria inhabits every fiber of your being, leaving little room for intrusive or racing thoughts. The combined efforts of the THC and terpenes produce a body high that is numbing but not overwhelming. Both Myrcene and Caryophyllene have strong anti-inflammatory properties, helping to ease symptoms of chronic pain and arthritis. Myrcene is also sedating, offering relief from sleep disorders like insomnia or chronic fatigue.
You will not battle to focus, so if your idea of a good time is reading in bed with a cup of tea, this is the one for you. But stick to the low-effort tasks – the tranquility is so encompassing that you will be blissfully resistant to doing anything else. In summary, Garanimals establishes a perfect state of physical, mental, and spiritual bliss.
Garanimals Strain Fragrance
To say that Garanimals fragrance is inviting would be an understatement. It is like getting home after a hard day to find your roommate baking cookies. The sweet and nutty scents are reminiscent of freshly baked blueberry pie, leaving your mouth watering for a taste of its goodness.
This dreamy blend of fruity sweetness and earthy spice will leave you feeling nostalgic and longing for the good old days.
Garanimals Strain Flavors
Garanimals flavor more than delivers on what its aroma promises. Caryophyllene makes black pepper spicy, and its effect comes through in the best way to counteract the sweet fruitiness.
On the first inhale, the flavors are subtle but inhale deeply, and you will taste the cookie dough. The exhale is earthy, hinting at the strain’s Grape Pie roots. The Myrcene delivers a freshness similar to that of eucalyptus.
Just one hit of a joint of Garanimals strain is enough to enjoy its flavorful, tranquil high and feel all your stress and pain washed away. Find seeds with similar traits in our shop.
Although the Garanimals strain has a high level of THC, it is not anxiety-inducing. However, there have been reports of users becoming paranoid, and, though not a common reaction, it is better to avoid this one if you have paranoid tendencies.
Garanimals strain effects are long-lasting and physically intense, which can be daunting to someone inexperienced or with a lower THC tolerance. It will leave you with very little motivation, or energy, so don’t even think about it if you have a busy day ahead. Timing is vital here – take it too early, and you will be kicking yourself. Not really – you’ll be too relaxed to care. But as soon as the high wears off, you may spiral into a shame cycle of smoker’s remorse. Overindulging is also a big no, even for seasoned smokers.
Garanimals Strain Adverse Reactions
You may experience headaches or drowsiness and are guaranteed to have dry, itchy eyes. Dry eyes never leave home without cottonmouth, so expect to feel as though you have been eating spoonfuls of cinnamon. The good news is you can manage these effects by keeping a jug of water nearby and staying hydrated. You may experience hunger, so add a few snacks too.
Growing Garanimals Strain
Garanimals strain seeds are highly sought after, but that does not mean they are easy to come by. Even if you manage to find seeds or clippings, growing them will be slow and challenging, even for experienced growers. The Garanimals strain yield can reach roughly 14 oz/ft both indoors and outdoors and reaches the flowering period in 60 – 63 days. Growers can get the most from their Garanimals strain yield by adding as many plants as possible, which requires a large amount of space and plenty of pruning.
Growing Garanimals Strain
Much like its seeds, finding information on how to grow Garanimals is futile. There is a lot more available on its parent strain, Animal Cookies, although this is also one tough cookie (pun intended) and not advised for beginners.
You can purchase seeds from the breeder or take clippings from mature plants to raise clones. Based on its parent, Animal Cookies outdoors growing will require a constant sunny, hot, and dry habitat. In other words, save this strain for experts with experience maintaining these types of conditions.
