Medical Benefits

Gary Payton is more effective at treating mental conditions than physical conditions. For those with anxiety and depression, this strain can help create a calming and positive mental environment. As its waves of euphoria settle in, users report that they feel a lot more relaxed and happy than they did prior to ingestion.

Gary Payton is also helpful for those with ADD and ADHD, given its ability to help users focus and direct their attention. Although it’s mostly used for mental conditions, this strain is also able to treat minor aches and pains, including headaches.


Like many other cookie strains, Gary Payton seeds are not available commercially. Because of this, no one knows much about the growing process. Your best bet is to purchase some of the bud and search for stray seeds! If you are able to try your luck growing this strain, you’ll definitely be rewarded with some potent and delicious bud.
