Hi-Octane goes by a few names, including High Octane Kush and High Octane, which can be a little confusing. High Octane OG is a pure 100% Indica strain made from Chemdawg and Hindu Kush genetics while Hi-Octane is an evenly balanced Octane and Sunset Sherbet hybrid. But both strains are sometimes listed as “High Octane.” Basically, without dwelling too much on it, this is a strain where you need to pay attention to what you’re buying! From here on, we’re assuming you’re looking at the 50/50 Hi-Octane, bred by Cookies Fam out of Los Angeles.
This strain’s flavor profile is a rush of mixed terpenes that you don’t see too often. These include Carene, Phellandrene, Ocimene, and Bisabolol. They impart Hi-Octane with flavors of spicy lime and herby citrus at first, but as you keep smoking, it transforms into a naturally earthy, cedar-like flavor that will remind you of the outdoors. The finish is chemmy, nutty, and pungent, with a relaxing sensation that will make you feel mentally energized and creative.
The Hi-Octane plant grows dense, round nugs that are deep green like little olives, with thin hairs the color of bright amber and tiny white trichomes. In no time, your plant will be dripping with sticky resin, though harvest time takes about 72 days to come around. Both indoors and outdoors, Hi-Octane can grow up to 60 inches in height so keep that in mind when you set up your growing area.
The strain’s high starts off sneaky and tingly, as pain drifts out of your system and positive calm seeps in. You’ll feel mentally energized and creative as the sweet citrus, berry, and woody flavors start to creep in. The strain is great for working on artistic projects, chatting with friends, debating movies, or letting your stress out and just relaxing on the couch, pretty mellow effects for a name that implies speed and chaos. The THC can get up to 24% so be aware of your dosage, but it’s not nearly as high as that copycat strain, “High Octane OG.” Remember to read the labels!
If you’re into a diverse flavor profile that includes wood, gas, citrus, herbs, and more, there’s a lot to love in Hi-Octane. Just be sure you’re prepared for the THC level. If all goes well, you’ll be on a creative, chatty high, totally at ease, after just a few puffs. Users who deal with a lot of stress, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and pain during the week can find a lot to love with Hi-Octane. If you ever feel like a crooked bookshelf, this strain could be your level.
