About Extreme OG
Extreme OG, most commonly known as “Extreme,” is an indica-dominant strain bred by Exotic Genetix to be extremely potent yet functional in order to keep the user from falling victim to an unbreakable couch lock. By crossing Fire OG and Green Ribbon, breeders have managed to keep the energetic properties of the grandparent strain, Green Crack, while giving the bud a mellowness from the indica genes.
The hard-hitting effects of the strain come mainly through its extraordinarily high THC levels that average around 28% and its CBD of 1% or greater in most cases. They barrel into you with a no holds barred attitude, and though they have a sweet lemony flavor, don’t let that fool you into thinking that these are in any way sweet or forgiving. The palate is rich with lemon, and somehow very full of earthiness and pine. The aromas are quite pungent and tangy especially when broken apart. Extreme OG buds are small and tight with amber hairs and a thick coating of chunky white trichomes that offset the deep forest green color of the nugs.
The Extreme OG high, as mentioned before, is a steamroller of effects. It comes through with very little mind to what is in its way, crashing into you with a cerebral rush and a wave of tingles that overtake your body. Though you’ll be feeling alert and focused, you’ll be struck with phases of lethargy and laziness that won’t necessarily let you get anything done. For the duration of this heavy body high your mind will stay wide-awake and somewhat creative, so if you have a low-key project this may be a good time to finish it.
Because the effects are really heavy, this strain is recommended for long-time smokers only, especially if you plan on using it medicinally. For treating insomnia, chronic pain, headaches, or migraines you’ll want to dose slightly higher, as this will ensure that the sedative does its magic. For mood disorders such as depression, chronic stress, bipolar, and minor cases of anxiety, smaller doses of this strain can be highly beneficial. With all of that said, some of the lesser desired side effects of Extreme OG, like paranoia and dizziness, may overwhelm even experienced users.
This heavy producing plant is a funky smelling medium to tall bush that can be worked indoors or outdoors, depending on your preference. Because it has extremely strong aromas you may want to invest in a smell proof system should you choose to go for it inside. With a flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks, you’re likely to see very high yields for your efforts.
With a name like Extreme OG you can really expect a certain type of high. It is one that will knock you out while simultaneously keeping you awake. This is a strain laced with contradictions: it’s up while down, it’s energetic while relaxing. The one thing that is always consistent is that this is a strain best served in the evening.
