Creme Brulee Marijuana Strain Information

Creme Brulee

 Indica Dominant Hybrid – 80% Indica / 20% Sativa

THC: 15%

Creme Brule is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain (80% indica/20% sativa) created through crossing the classic Platinum Kush X OG Kush X Girl Scout Cookies strains. Known for its insanely delicious flavor, Crème Brule packs a sweet vanilla and nutty taste into each and every delicious little toke. The aroma follows the same profile, although with a light influx of earthy woods and sweet herbs. The Crème Brule high is just as addictive as the flavor, with long lasting and lifted effects that are perfect for those days or nights when you just want to kick back and relax. You’ll feel a lifted onset hit your brain a few minutes after your last toke, filling you with a sense of pure happiness and a deep-felt feeling of relaxation. Soon, this effect will wash over the rest of your body, lulling you into a totally sedated state that can lead to couch-lock and a long and peaceful nap. Thanks to these effects and its high level of potency, Crème Brule is often chosen to treat conditions such as depression, appetite loss or nausea, chronic stress or anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, and chronic fatigue. This bud has fluffy forest green nugs with lots of thin amber hairs and frosty tiny amber crystal trichomes.

History of the Crème Brulee Strain

Crème Brulee is the result of mixing the old with the new. While it hasn’t been around as long as other classic strains, it has made a name for itself as a top choice for an afternoon delight within the last decade. There is some dispute regarding its genetics, but Crème Brulee is most known for its relaxing effects and sweet flavor profile. 

Its exact origins are a bit confusing, as more than one breeder has claimed to have bred a “Crème Brulee” cultivar.  

There’s one version, bred by Leo Stone of Aficionado Estates, that claims a cross of OGKB Cookies x Royal Sour x Chemdawg Special Reserve. Based on these parent strains, this version imparts a balanced or even sativa-dominant high and may have a sharper, more sour terpene profile. 

However, most point to Emerald Family Farms and their cross of Platinum Kush x OG Kush x Girl Scout Cookies for first producing this tasty strain. Numerous sources describe this Crème Brulee as an indica-dominant hybrid with an earthy, vanilla scent and nutty flavor. 

Be sure to double check or ask a budtender so as not to pick up the wrong version, or a strain with a similar confection name. For example, despite a similar name, Crème Brulee is not genetically similar to the high-CBD strain Cherry Crème Brulee. 


Although some may associate cannabis strains with a pungent, skunk-like smell, this isn’t true for Creme Brulee. Instead, this strain has a sweet, nearly candied, and confection-like aroma. It transports users to a patisserie or bakeshop with smells of butter, sugar, and vanilla hanging heavy in the air.

Many fans of this strain compliment its soothing tangle of honey, cream, and undertones of something fresh and floral. Others delight in the fragrance of this strain’s deep, warm earthiness.


Creme Brulee users are in for a special treat with this strain. It lacks the harsh nature of some other breeds and instead hits the users softly on the tongue. The initial onset reveals a plethora of sensations. Users report an onslaught of sweetness.

However, it isn’t too cloying but tinged with a buttery richness that many consumers feel keeps the strain from going overboard.

A variety of other flavors also undercuts it. These include a harmonious blend of cream and vanilla. The addition of these two elements creates a massive hit of delicious notes that intertwine with the herb of the strain and a nutty undertone that takes this strain to ambrosial heights.


Creme Brulee has deep, verdant nugs with hints of amber nestled into the crooks and crannies. It also sports a layer of sugary trichomes that make this strain sticky with resin. Its fluffy buds are popcorn-like and plump. Other colors include traces of bright yellow and orange along with hints of lime and light green.

Creme Brulee Strain Grow Info

Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee seeds are a good match for growers that may be searching for a strain with a quick turnaround as it can be harvested after 9-10 weeks. The Creme Brulee strain is also robust and is relatively resistant to a variety of irritants, including mold, mites, and mildew.

However, this plant thrives best with a 12/12 photoperiod, and growers should trim and prune to allow for proper air and light circulation. The branches grow thick and sturdy. If growers have planted it outside, the strain can withstand inclement weather patterns and extreme temperature changes.

Nutrient-rich soil may work best for some home growers. Some cultivators suggest no-till soils rich in organic materials such as barley, yucca, aloe, or kelp for best results. It grows well indoors and outdoors.

Growers also don’t have to reinforce the branches. The branches are sturdy, and the plant can resist toppling over even in high winds and rain. However, for a higher yield, growers should grow indoors. Some useful techniques include SOG and a hydroponics set-up.

Medical Benefits of the Creme Brulee Strain

Creme Brulee is an option for those seeking to alleviate stress. This strain is quite adept at reducing worry, mental pressure, and tension. Users report feeling uplifted and happy. This euphoric cannabis strain helps to address other disorder related issues, including mood disorder symptoms.

This strain is also good at addressing symptoms rooted in physical conditions and disorders. These symptoms include migraines, chronic pain, and nausea. Consuming this strain may induce a case of the munchies. Creme brulee is a popular choice for anyone who may experience a lack of appetite.

Crème Brulee Terpene Breakdown

This myriad of beneficial effects comes from the combination of Crème Brulee’s cannabinoids and terpenes, the oil-based compounds of the plant responsible for aroma and flavor. This combination, called “the entourage effect,” produces the distinct highs in each strain for any cannabis lover to choose from.  

1. D-Limonene 

Limonene is a prominent terpene in citrus fruits like lemons and oranges as well as cannabis. Research has shown D-limonene has numerous health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It has also been used in clinical trials to treat heartburn, and may even help mitigate multiple forms of cancer. 

2. Myrcene

Myrcene is the most commonly occurring terpene across the spectrum of cannabis, evoking a musky, spicy aroma found in plants like eucalyptus, ylang-ylang, and mangoes. Myrcene is largely responsible for the “couch-lock” effect in numerous indica-dominant strains, and it has shown to help patients with insomnia and even diabetes. 

3. Beta-Caryophyllene 

This unique terpene goes above and beyond, interacting with CB2 receptors in the body like a cannabinoid. Studies have shown its efficacy for inflammatory conditions like colitis and osteoporosis in addition to pain management. It is also a “dietary terpene,” and FDA-approved for use in foods and flavorings for black pepper, cloves and hops due to its pungent aroma.

4. Linalool

While not as prominent as the other terpenes, linalool contributes greatly to a strain’s soothing and relaxing effects. It is also the primary terpene in lavender, creating a multisensory zen feeling. In addition to soothing stress and aiding with sleep, studies have shown linalool to have anti-convulsant properties that may benefit epileptic patients.
