Gary Payton Seeds Overview

The name Gary Payton might not be familiar to everyone, but the lineage of this hybrid cannabis strain is what makes it a standout variety among West Coast Cookie cultivars. Named after former NBA All-Star turned cannabis entrepreneur Gary Payton, this cross between Snowman and The Y (Cookies x Cherry Pie) is a certain slam dunk for growers looking for high levels of THC or for concentrate production. Clocking in with up to 24% THC, its cerebral effects are noticed first before the euphoria kicks in, though many users have also noted improved focus, making it an all-day strain.

What are the effects of Gary Payton weed?

Thanks to its Cookies potency (up to 24% THC), Gary Payton drives straight to the head and gives users a clear cerebral buzz before launching them towards euphoric bliss. As the stone intensifies, energy levels also increase and users note improved focus. This uplifting feeling can also be accompanied by uncontrollable laughter, making it a great strain for treating depression, anxiety and mood swings. Other medicinal uses include headaches or migraines, chronic stress and ADHD.

How to grow Gary Payton seeds?

Despite its reputation as a powerful yet highly pleasant strain, Gary Payton is actually relatively easy to grow both indoors and outdoors. Its sativa lineage can turn it into a fairly tall plant (up to 6 ft / 180 cm), so if you are growing under lamps you should keep this in mind, particularly if space is a concern. Flowering takes about 8-10 weeks if grown indoors, if grown outdoors you can expect to harvest around mid to late October depending on geography. As a West Coast variety, Gary Payton prefers warm temperatures with a slightly higher than average humidity of around 60%. One thing to keep in mind is the strain’s susceptibility to mold and fungus, so keep a watchful eye on excess moisture. Pruning and proper airflow can help prevent fungal infections and the strain performs well in a SOG setup.

Gary Payton strain appearance and aroma

Gary Payton plants will typically display small, vivid mint-green buds shaped like small grapes with radiant orange pistils and coated in sparkling white trichomes. Overall, the aroma of Gary Payton is quite pungent and diesel-like with rubbery notes and an earthy, herbal aroma. On occasion, sweet berry or floral undertones can be found in some phenotypes, though pungent fuel is the most common. One thing to consider is the strain’s lingering odor as it is difficult to mask. 

MSNL Editors Verdict

Gary Payton is not only flavorful and very pleasant to smoke, it packs a punch and its positive effects can linger for hours. Relatively easy to grow, it is a great choice for making concentrates such as wax, which when dabbed, accents the aroma and flavors as well as the overall smoking experience even more.

What does Gary Payton taste like?

On the inhale users will note a pungent diesel flavor that is robustly spicy yet slightly sweet, whereas the exhale offers an eclectic combination of pine, mint and cinnamon, providing a wonderfully smooth aftertaste in line with the best of the Cookies family that also lingers on the tastebuds.
