This strain review is on one of Berner’s genetics and its the Snowman Strain. Berner is the one who branded the Girl Scout Cookies or “cookie” name in the marijuana industry. This started the fad of everyone trying to cross with the GSC genetics to create new strains.
Berner’s Snowman is a Sativa dominant Hybrid probably like 70/30 ratio Sativa to Indica. This strain carries a cross of the Girl Scout Cookie genes to create this dynamic strain.
About this Hybrid Strain
Snowman is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain bred by the infamous Berner. With genetics from his GSC strain, it is sure not to disappoint. This strain has large trichome covered nugs that are light green with burnt orange pistils. Reviewers note that it tastes similar to GSC with a hint of vanilla, while others have experienced fruity notes in its aroma.
The effects of this strain have been reviewed to be uplifting and euphoric. Snowman tends to leave the user in a mentally stimulating high that is perfectly paired for creative tasks and social situations. As Snowman’s heady high starts to settle in, users have reported a hazy and relaxing body stone that has left them ravenous and sleepy, but not fully sedated.
For you terp hunters, this strain boosts high levels of the terpenes Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Linalool. Those suffering from depression, anxiety, appetite loss, and chronic pain have reportedly found some relief when using this strain.
Snowman is a unique phenotype of GSC (formerly Girl Scout Cookies) with mysterious origins. Some online sources claim Berner — rapper and friend of Wiz Khalifa — first propagated the cut, while Emerald Family Farms has a version with the same name. Regardless of origin, Snowman is so named for its heavy coat of trichomes, giving it the appearance of being covered in fresh snow. The strain features a sweet flavor similar to GSC, with an earthy Kush-laden fragrance sweetened by vanilla notes.
THC percentage levels average in the 20’s, and it is recommended to check your batches percentages before fashioning a serving for yourself.
SNOWMAN STRAIN LOOK:
The Snowman strain gives a name for itself with the coverage of crystals that are the trichomes that’s covering the buds. Long thin orange hairs are around covering and weaving around the bud. Light green buds all the around, no purple leaves at all it was a very clean looking strain.
SNOWMAN STRAIN AROMA:
The Smell as you popped open the lid of the jar was a whiff of pink kool-aid and strawberry lemonade right off the bat. Then a subtle smell of fruity pebbles just took over the rest. It truly had a unique smell that was one you won’t ever forget. When broken up with a grinder before being rolled in the joint it had a Fruity smell. It was overwhelming and it took over the kool-aid and lemonade smell.
SNOWMAN FEEL AND DENSITY:
The buds were not sticky at all, surprisingly you would think it would be because of the coverage of trichomes on the buds. It really didn’t leave much residue on your finger tips either which was a bummer. The Density of the buds were not to dense but not airy. Good bud structure overall.
SNOWMAN STRAIN MEDICATING:
Berner’s Snowman tasted just liked it smelled which was crazy because usually it doesn’t work like that. Gave your nose a little tingle after taking a couple puffs of the joint. It definitely was a heavy hitter at some points because it did make me cough a couple times.
The Ash is where I was really disappointed in the strain because the ash wasn’t really white at all. It wasn’t flushed properly I believe because the hot was black all around it was similar to the ash of the Pink Panties I also had.
BERNER’S SNOWMAN EFFECTS:
Instant head rush with and uplifting feel that overcame any body buzz. I really liked the uplifting effects the strain had on me. I was able to think more clearer and be more task oriented to get errands and work done. The strain gave me no anxiety either which was nice from the Sativa dominant strain.
I would definitely recommend this strain and repurchase it because of the uplifting effects the strain had on me. The taste was great with the unique smell it carried. I would say its for heavier users or if you just want to hit it once or twice you would feel the effects pretty instant.

Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 60% Sativa / 40% Indica
Snowman, not to be confused with its sister strain “Berner’s Snowman,” is a slightly sativa dominant hybrid strain (60% sativa/40% indica) created as a phenotype of the delicious Girl Scout Cookies strain. Named for its super frosty appearance, Snowman packs a high that’s perfect for a lazy afternoon when you want to kick back and just let yourself get lost in thought. You’ll feel happy and lifted from start to finish with a touch of creative energy that gets you thinking about things – what has been, what is and what could be. As you fall in and out of this super introspective state, you’ll feel a touch of physical relaxation pull you back to the real world without any sedation whatsoever. These heady effects and its high 23% + average THC level make Snowman best for treating experienced patients with appetite loss, depression, chronic stress or anxiety and migraines or headaches. This bud has a super spicy diesel flavor with a hint of sweet vanilla that lingers on your tongue. The aroma is of earthy diesel and spicy kush with an herbal overtone that turns sour as the nugs are burned. Snowman buds have super frosty spade-shaped lumpy nugs with thin light orange hairs and sticky sweet resin throughout.
I enjoyed Berner’s Snowman strain, I bet if I got this out in Cali because that’s where the original cookie originated from,”it would’ve been off the charts.”I thought it had great effects for being a Sativa dominant Hybrid.
The smell and the effects blew me away in this review, but the ash was a disappointment and really hurt the review overall. I always prefer to have clean flushed medical cannabis especially if I am smoking a joint of it. Who likes relighting a joint or seeing the black ash while you medicate.
