The Origins of the Cereal Milk Strain

Cereal Milk is a newcomer to the cannabis scene, first appearing around 2019. The strain comes from cannabis cultivators Powerzzzup Genetics and Cookies. You may be familiar with the Cookies name, as they are responsible for the Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) strain. Cereal Milk is another sweet-smelling hybrid strain that has a high THC content. While some strains are largely Sativa-dominant or Indica-dominant, the Cereal Milk strain is almost equal parts Sativa and Indica.

Cereal Milk Strain Information

Cereal Milk is made by crossing the Y Life and Snowman strains, which are both crossbred strains themselves. 

Y Life is a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, while Snowman is a particular Sativa-dominant phenotype of Cookies. While there’s not much known about Y Life, many say that it produces a relaxing high with upfront sweetness, while others report its uplifting effects. Snowman, on the other hand, produces uplifting and creative effects for many users. Together, the Cereal Milk strain can produce a nice, balanced high.

Cereal Milk Strain Effects

Cannabis strains can affect different people in different ways, so it’s crucial to understand the differences to choose what’s best for your needs. At the onset, Cereal Milk can provide the uplifting and social effects of a Sativa. Then, the Indica effects take over to provide a sense of calm while putting you in a euphoric state. Like many Indica hybrid strains, you may also experience a body high accompanied by warmth and heaviness.

Many Cereal Milk users feel more social when using this strain, so it can be a great option when you’re looking to socialize with friends or if you’re hoping to tackle any creative endeavors. This is a versatile strain great for any time of day use. Here are a few of the Cereal Milk strain benefits we hear about most:

Mood Booster

As a balanced hybrid, Cereal Milk can help provide feelings of happiness and euphoria for users. Many users report feeling uplifted and in a good mood, including some who get giggly. If you’re looking to boost your mood, Cereal Milk can be a great choice.

Clear-Headed High

The Cereal Milk strain offers a focused cerebral high while helping to induce calmness. Therefore, it’s an ideal strain to help combat symptoms of stress or anxiety. 

The clear-headed high is also great for creativity. In fact, some users report a boost of creativity, mental clarity, and focus after smoking Cereal Milk. It’s a great strain when you want to unlock your creativity or need to complete an artistic task.

Physical Relaxation

After giving users a euphoric feeling at the onset, the effects of Cereal Milk can often fade into a physical state of relaxation. Combined with the uplifting Sativa effects, this full-body relaxation leaves users with a completely balanced high.

While these are the most common effects, cannabis effects can vary from person to person. These effects can also change based on a variety of factors, including consumption method, consumption amount, and individual user tolerance.

Cereal Milk Typical Usage

Like many hybrids, Cereal Milk is a versatile strain. Because of its balanced high, it can be used at any time of day. The euphoric effects will keep you in a great mood, whether you’re hanging with friends, completing a creative project, or just want to relax and unwind.

What Does Cereal Milk Smell and Taste Like?

Sweet flavor icon

As you can guess, the Cereal Milk strain gets its name from the sweet vanilla scent and fruity citrus flavor notes. Some consumers also get hints of berries on the nose.

It reminds many of the sugary scent of milk in a bowl after you’ve finished eating cereal, while it can remind others of vanilla ice cream.

In addition to these initial scents, you may also smell the spicy flavors of baking spice.

The taste of Cereal Milk is much like the scent, with sweet, creamy, and fruity flavors. The fruity sweetness takes center stage on the inhale before the creamy undertones hit your taste buds. There are hints of herbs as well. Cereal Milk is a tasty and smooth smoke.

What’s the Cereal Milk Strain Look Like?

The buds from Cereal Milk plants are mostly popcorn-shaped, with bright green leaves, orange stigmas, and a frosty coating of trichomes. This frosty layer of trichomes can be reminiscent of popular sugar-coated cereals. This thick layer of sparkling resin on each bud, paired with the creamy aroma, is another reason for the Cereal Milk name.

What is the THC level of Cereal Milk?

THC levels play an important role in your high, and they can also impact your consumption amounts. The higher the THC level, the less you may have to consume to feel the desired effect. Typically, Cereal Milk’s THC level is between 27-32%, although this can vary. 

Like many other high-THC strains, Cereal Milk contains very little CBD – only up to 1.2%. Because of its THC content, all users who are trying Cereal Milk for the first time should start slow.

Cereal Milk Terpenes

A strain’s terpene profile is a crucial part of the cannabis experience, and terpenes are responsible for a cannabis strain’s unique aromas and flavors. Certain terpenes also produce a certain experience for the consumer. Cereal Milk’s dominant terpene is caryophyllene.

Caryophyllene (also known as beta-caryophyllene) is a terpene that produces earthy, spicy, and floral aromas. You’ll find caryophyllene in some herbs and spices, such as oregano, black pepper, and basil. Many people swear by caryophyllene’s anti-inflammatory and chronic pain-relief effects, and current research is studying the benefits of this terpene.

Limonene terpene

Another terpene in Cereal Milk is limonene. Limonene, as the name suggests, can produce a citrus-like aroma and flavor. You’ll find limonene in citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and grapefruits. Research is currently focusing on limonene’s possible benefits as a treatment for stress, depression, and anxiety.

Myrcene Terpene

Myrcene is another terpene found in the Cereal Milk cannabis strain. As one of the most common terpenes in cannabis, myrcene is also present in plants like hops, lemongrass, and bay leaves. Many believe it has a sedative effect, and research is investigating its ability to provide relief from pain and inflammation.

linalool terpene icon

There’s also linalool in the Cereal Milk strain. You’ll find linalool in lavender and basil, and it has a distinct lavender-like smell. Currently, researchers are examining linalool’s potential cognitive effects – which include stress reduction and chronic pain management.
