“We were contacted by The Girl Scouts of America, asking our team here at Arizona Natural Selections to cease the use of the ‘Girl Scout Cookies’ trademark name in conjunction with one of the most iconic sativa dominant, hybrid strains in the market,” says J.P. Holyoak, one of Arizona Natural Selections’ founders and chairman of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol.\
“We do understand their concern and are in the process of immediately removing all reference from our product lines; renaming it simply ‘GSC’ for now. As an emerging industry which seeks the rights of all legitimate industries, including the right to develop and hold intellectual property, we will certainly respect the intellectual property of others.”
Who Else Was Contacted?
Arizona Natural Selections is not the only dispensary to be contacted about this matter, but we are taking action quickly. As one of the first licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in the state, we are dedicated to excellence and known throughout Arizona for our quality, variety, and attentive service. That same dedication to excellence extends to our respect of professional organizations and members of our community right across Arizona.
GSC is the Same Strain You Know and Love Under a Different Name
The strain in question will now be known as “GSC.”
GSC will continue to be available for all current and new patients at Arizona Natural Selections’ two valley locations in Scottsdale and Peoria. In fact, GSC has been noted as one of the most popular strains at our dispensaries. It has been proven effective for a wide range of health conditions.
For patients, GSC stands out as a hybrid offering full-body relaxation appropriate for problems like chronic pain, nausea, and appetite loss. Among connoisseurs and industry experts, it has been lauded with a number of prestigious awards.
Although we are changing the name, nothing else will change about this beloved product.

To help as many people as possible, it’s important to remain focused on our mission. We are happy to comply with The Girl Scouts of America’s request and make this name change effective immediately.
