About Marathon OG
Marathon OG uses its Indica-heavy structure to power through your fatigue and depression like a high-class runner making the hurdles of your mind. Also called Marathon Kush, this strain was a gift to the rapper Nipsey Hu$$le to celebrate some of his famous mixes with a heavy knock-back kind of strain that anyone could enjoy.
This is a potent strain, sitting in the mid-20s in terms of THC and one of the prides and joys of its breeder, The Cure Company. They assembled it from a mouth-watering terpene profile that has a lemony onset full of earthy spice and ends in a musk of gassy exhale. The high is fitting for a rap superstar’s namesake, with a blast of mental focus and potent stoniness following the amazing flavors.
Marathon OG slams you to the couch at the same time it lifts your soul. You’ll feel mentally focused and energetic, but physically blown over with feelings of heavy sedation. This strain features laid-back feelings similar to putting on your favorite mixtape and dropping off after a busy afternoon.
The strain grows in a thick arrangement of oversized, fluffy nugs with a healthy dose of thick orange pistils. The trichomes grow in like sparkling gemstones and add to the strain’s vibrant colors, which include yellow leaves and darker foliage underneath.
When you smoke Marathon OG, you’ll feel your mind melting as you take in the scent of lemon, clove, and other spices. The spicy, earthy flavor compliments the rich sourness of herbs and fuel on the exhale. The effects follow suit with the awe-inspiring flavors.
The first effect is the mental knock-back as you drop onto the couch. Those who feel the pain of chronic muscle cramps, spasms, and pain should feel them evaporating from their body as they start on their marathon. Fatigue, which contributes to stress and depression, is no match for running a late afternoon marathon with the couch-locking euphoria of this amazing Kush.
Fans of OG Kush will recognize this phenotype’s effects, its heavy trichome build, and lemon-herb scent. This strain is generous all around – with both the mentally uplifting energy and the cocktail of sour earthy tastes. If you want to feel like a hip-hop king, or at least get a literal taste of some of his success, Marathon OG has you more than covered for those long afternoons at home.
