Wookies Strain – Everything you need to know and more!
Looking for the large, hairy creature found in far off lands made in cinema movie magic? We’re sorry to report you’re in the wrong place. However, if you’re looking for a dankenstein, an indica dominant hybrid strain that’s sure to leave you feeling relaxed, read on!
Wookies tastes great and is highly potent. Just don’t confuse it with Wookie, an entirely different strain. Wookies has a great genetic profile, inherited from its parents, Girl Scout Cookies, Chemdawg 91 and The White 91. This strain should almost certainly be considered a dankenstein strain, as its parents are all dank strains. These 3 strains come together to create one monster, which would make the hairy alien in Star Wars proud. Just mix some tasty crystal trichomes into the hair and then you’re really talking! Wookies comes from the Cookies genetic line, which, if you’re already familiar with Cookies, you know it means Wookies will taste amazing. To fully appreciate the taste of this strain you should grind it up and vape it inside a flower vaporizer.
This strain is sometimes called Purple Wookie, Purple Wookie Strain, Chewbacca strain, Chewbacca Cookies, Girl Scout Wookies, Cocoon Cookie, Wookie Kush, Dirty Wookie, Cookie Wookie, and tk91 strain.
To truly enjoy a dankestein like Wookies, you’re going to want to grind your flower into a fluffy texture.
Not all grinders can get you the fluff you’re after, but the Santa Cruz Shredder can definitely get the job done. Its square teeth deliver an even grind every time, meaning the flower you pack will light up perfectly. There’s a reason it tops our list of favourite herb grinders!

Wookies Strain: Indica or Sativa?
Wookies is a fairly balanced Indica-dominant hybrid, coming in at about a 65 indica/35 sativa ratio split. Being that it’s well-balanced, you can enjoy both the cerebral effects of its Sativa heritage while being relaxed by the Indica-dominant nature of the strain. Wookies is definitely one to be enjoyed by the cannabis connoisseurs among us. Be aware that it’s a fairly rare, clone-only strain, meaning that it’s quite hard to find. If you do manage to find it, you should prepare yourself for a great taste and potent Indica-dominant effects. Its strong terpene profile will leave you with plenty of high, but the indica domination won’t let you wander too far off into la la land.
The original breeder of Wookies isn’t 100% known. Some sources report that it was Phillip Hague, aka Tierra Rojo, who created this masterpiece. However, whoever originally bred it is undoubtedly a master breeder, as they brought together three strains to make one monster strain. This isn’t particularly easy, so you know that the original breeders mean business. The seeds are, unfortunately, impossible to find online, as this is a clone-only strain. This adds to the rarity and therefore the price of the strain. The three strains crossed together to create Wookies were:
- The White 91
- Chemdawg 91
- Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookies has a fantastic flavor, and The White 91 is known for its trichome production. Chemdawg 91 is known for its potency, which makes Wookies an all-around strain, with great trichome production, fantastic flavor, and high potency.
Wookies THC percentage
Wookies have a pretty high THC percentage relative to average strains. The average Indica-dominant hybrid sits at around 13% THC, whereas the average THC percentage of Wookies is about 18%. The most potent phenotypes, with the largest terpene profile, of Wookies have around 25% THC, making it a very strong strain. You may find that you’re feeling a little couch locked after smoking this strain. But fear not, there are ways to uproot yourself from the tierra roja if you feel yourself sinking into the ground. We’ll cover that below!
Wookies are, unfortunately, a rare, clone-only strain. A quick menu search at a coffee shop probably isn’t going to help you find Wookies. This drives the price up significantly. Furthermore, this strain is a boutique dankenstein strain, making the price even higher. You will probably pay at least $20 a gram to add this special little strain to your shopping bag. Perhaps if you’re in one of the legal weed states of the United States or Canada you’ll find a more reasonable price tag.
Wookies should be enjoyed ground up and smoked from the inside of a flower vaporizer. That is because there’s no combustion of plant material when you use a vaporizer, therefore allowing the taste profile to be fully enjoyed. Wookies is a fantastically tasty strain, mainly because of its Girl Scout Cookie heritage. The full taste profile of Girl Scout Wookies is:
- Lemon sour component
Wookies oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.
You can make any strain you like into Butane Hash oil, also known as oil, wax, or shatter. Concentrate creators normally look for taste and trichome production (and therefore potency) when they are deciding which strains to use. As such, Wookies makes a fantastic choice. However, making Butane Hash Oil is considered very dangerous, and some people have burnt their houses down in the attempt. As such, we recommend that instead of making your own, you travel somewhere like Canada, where you can buy shatter. You won’t find concentrates when you browse menus in Amsterdam at the moment, because they are not included in the loophole that allows coffeeshops to sell weed.
If you’re already equipped with a favourite glass dab rig or bong, but are after a new quartz banger, this 100% Quartz Splash Guard Banger crafted by Miami Glass is a great option.
It’s well priced and well crafted with a beveled edge so you ensure you get to enjoy every bit of your concentrates.
