About Mercury OG
Mystery strains tend to be the most fun, and Mercury OG is no exception to this rule. With unknown genetics and a high THC content, users are whisked away to a land of intense experiences that make you question the very meaning of life. A strong aroma and an even stronger set of effects make this gal a nighttime favorite.
Newer users should be very cautious when enjoying Mercury OG, as THC levels can reach as high as 24%. That might not sound high to some, but after you experience the ride that’s awaiting, you might think twice next time. Nugs tend to be very lumpy and frosty with a decent but not overwhelming amount of pistils. While it sounds odd, the strain smells strongly of butter but in the best way possible. A sweeter note hits your tongue as you smoke.
While many strains tend to hit you in the mind before the body, Mercury OG heads straight for the gut with a body high that’s extreme. You’ll feel as if you’re tunneling through a black hole or melting with the room around you, but we assure you, you’re fine. Because of these rather strong psychoactive effects, many users enjoy listening to music during their high. Munchies come with the territory here, and since you’ll be glued to the couch, bring them over ahead of time.
Medical patients who struggle with a range of ailments tend to really prefer this strain. Not only is she strong, but she’ll wipe your mental and physical slate so clean it could pass the white glove test. Depression and stress will be gone once you’ve enjoyed Mercury OG, and physical ailments, a lack of appetite, or even insomnia will be solved with ease. Use caution if you are prone to anxiety or paranoia, as indulging in too much of this strain can lead to those issues.
Guess what? This mystery strain didn’t show up with an instruction manual, so growing your own will be the biggest challenge you’ve probably had in a while. As a pure indica, we’re told that she flowers relatively quickly at around 8 to 10 weeks, but beyond that, her preferred climate and resiliency to pests or mold is unknown. This strain is very popular in California and Canada, so chatting it up with some industry professionals there might yield you some wisdom.
If you only remember one thing, remember this - plan ahead with Mercury OG. You will be spacey, starving, and probably unable to move much, so bring the food, pillow, and blanket before you smoke. It’s advice that’s given time and time again, but in this instance it will really come in handy. Aside from that, make sure you have an amazing music selection at the ready and enjoy your night in.
