History & Genetics
True G-13, or Government Indica Strain 13, is a pure indica strain that appeared sometime in the 70s or 80s. After years of crossbreeding, however, the current G-13s generally found in dispensaries are unlikely to be pure indica. Today's G-13 strains are typically 70% indica and 30% sativa.
G-13 is believed to have originated in a research facility in Mississippi in the 60s or 70s, where, with the help from the University of Mississippi, pure Afghani indica clones were used to attempt the creation of a super indica strain. As the story goes, Neville Schoenmaker convinced someone working there to bring him a cut from one of the strains, labeled G-1 to G-23. G-13 was chosen as the most stable.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
This strain has a unique aroma that'll stick out among other cannabis nuggets. The smell sticks out at skunk and cheese with a floral, berry scent on top. The Pinene terpene sticks out on the flavor profile to add some grounding nostalgia to your toke. Overall the smoke is pretty creamy and one you'll remember.
G-13 is coated in light blue trichomes and has a plethora of calyxes. The hairs are amber and the nugs are spade-shaped and earthy greem.
G-13 produces a powerful body stone, typical of indica strains, that will make users feel lazy and lethargic. It also has strong cerebral effects often described as euphoric. Experienced users claim this strain makes them more focused and creative before the couch-lock feeling sets in. The strain also possesses typical downsides associated with Indica strains high in THC, including dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, paranoia, and some anxiety.
The G-13 strain can be used to medicate throughout the later part of the day, easing chronic aches, pains, and muscle spasms. Its mood-elevating effects may help battle stress, anxiety, and depression. Some find that it assists with insomnia. It is also used by patients to combat the effects of eating disorders, seizures, and nausea.
This strain flowers for six to eight weeks to produce a reportedly high yield and works very well in a Sea of Green. Unfortunately, true G-13 is a rare find as it is available in clone form only.
This is one of my favorite strains! I was told it was at the local dispensary but when I got there, it was sold out. He didn't even save any for himself. So when I bought my Lemon OG strain that day, the vendor GAVE me a G-13 genuine feminized seed! When my other grow is done, I'll germinate and pot them. I'll update as they progress.
Noise! Flavorful. Great high for EOD. I prefer to smoke this alone.
Was great in every way. Question - How did the G-13 DNA change if it's only available in clone?Have there been 0 hermaphrodites in this variety in the last 50-60 years?

Strongest weed I’ve ever had in Amsterdam...so strong, I couldn’t get up from the table! Heavy as hell on body and mind. Munchies with this bus are ridiculous. Lovely smoke but strong bitter aftertaste.
