Deadhead OG is a hybrid medical marijuana strain with a lineage of both Sativa and Indica. Chemdawg 91 (Sativa) accounts for 60% of its DNA, while SFV OG Kush makes up the other 40%. Its THC content regularly reaches above 20.0%, and its CBD content is generally around 0.20%. This classic strain was created by master breeder Skunk VA at The Cali Connection in June 2011. Since its birth, it has become highly popular in the western region of the U.S.
The aroma of Deadhead is very pungent, yet pleasant. Patients often describe notes of pine, lemon, and wood in both the raw buds and the smoke. Its earthy fragrance is very smooth, but can easily permeate a house.
A wide range of ailments can be successfully treated by Deadhead OG, including anxiety, insomnia, chronic depression, stress, and pain. Once smoked, mood elevation sets in almost immediately. Feelings of amusement and euphoria are common, and this mood improvement generally lasts for several hours. The mental high is very stimulating, resulting in increased focus and introspection, rather than a dazed, stoned feeling. It is recommended for those who want to be able to stay active after medicating. While the high does not induce lethargy, it does increase relaxation and one’s ability to fall asleep.
Accompanying the cerebral high is a soothing body high. It calms muscles and jitters, dampening any pain.
Reported side effects include paranoia, anxiety, dizziness, dry mouth, and dry eyes, but only in rare cases. Because Deadhead is such a potent strain, it is not recommended for patients who are new to smoking cannabis, or have a low tolerance level.
Deadhead OG is a hardy plant that can grow in a variety of setups, both indoor and outdoor. It also flourishes with hydroponics. The plant generally grows to a medium height, producing medium to high yields depending on the favorability of the growing conditions. Average yields come out to 600 gm per square meter. The flower stage typically lasts anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks. The large and sticky buds produced are fuzzy with hairs of white and orange, which are thickly crusted with THC. Deadhead’s adaptability and ease of growing makes it an ideal choice for novice growers.
