About Neptune OG
Neptune OG is an indica-dominant hybrid that carries a funky, classically OG flavor and very heavy physical effects. A so-called “planetary” strain like Mars OG, Neptune OG’s genetics background and original breeders are not well documented. Nevertheless, this hashy bud is prized for its ability to deliver recreational relaxation as well as medically therapeutic pain relief. Its THC content has been measured at levels between 11% and 23%.
Neptune OG’s flowers are usually only small to medium in size, clinging together in dense, popcorn-like clusters. The pebbly buds have an unmistakably indica structure, compact and tight. The tightly-curling leaves are a bright spring green and are twisted through with orange and copper-colored pistils. Finally, icy white trichomes dot the inner and outer nooks and crannies of these dense little buds, accounting for their high psychoactivity.
When properly cured, flowers of Neptune OG give off a fruity but slightly rank scent, like fermented vegetable matter. Lurking underneath is a more mellow smell of earth and musk. Cracking open these buds gives off a decidedly spicy scent reminiscent of landrace indicas from Afghanistan. When combusted in a pipe or joint, the strain burns with a harsh, acrid smoke that can tickle the sinuses and make the eyes water. This smoke tastes fruity and skunky on the exhale.
Neptune OG’s high can sneak up on the user, only making itself known after 10 or 15 minutes with a rush of blood to the head. Its arrival also comes with some strong sensory distortion. Consumers may experience slight visual hallucinations like a flattening of depth perception or may feel like time is slowing down. While these trippy sensations can be alarming for the uninitiated, they can be psychedelically blissful for more experienced cannabis users and can be amplified even further by throwing on a favorite album or watching some visually-engaging television. Beyond these odd experiences, Neptune OG won’t do much to stimulate your way of thinking and is not a good tool for productivity. Instead, lean back and enjoy this euphoric strain’s peaceful body melt as you unwind after a long day or week of work. Neptune OG can be as enjoyable when savored alone as when shared with a small group of like-minded friends. As the high progresses, smokers may feel palpable waves of relaxation roll down from the neck and spread out through the core and limbs. Tensions and preoccupations may begin to vanish, making the smoker feel as if they’ve been shot into orbit around Neptune itself rather than back on earth and smoking Neptune OG. Eventually, expect to be more or less incapacitated by couchlock, pinned to whatever surface you may be reclined on and stripped of any desire to get up and move. In such comfortable conditions, Neptune OG may even lull susceptible smokers into a deep, restful sleep. Because of its deeply sedative, almost narcotic vibes, Neptune OG is recommended for evening and nighttime use.Neptune OG can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its elevated mindset can temporarily banish the troubling symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. This bud can also alleviate physical aches and pains, whether they’re temporary and injury-related or chronic, as due to conditions like arthritis or lupus. Anti-inflammatory properties may lessen everyday annoyances like headaches and nausea. As noted, Neptune OG can even induce sleep, making it a viable treatment for insomnia. Because it is not likely to induce a cerebral, paranoid way of thinking, this strain is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of this hard-to-find strain are not available for sale online. Instead, prospective growers should seek out clippings that can be fostered as genetically identical “clones.” While there is little information available regarding specific best practices for cultivating Neptune OG, we know that like many hybrids, it can be grown indoors or outdoors in a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. The strain’s indica genetics suggest plants that grow short and bushy and can be easily accommodated in limited indoor spaces. Its indica roots also imply a relatively brief flowering time of at least 8 weeks.
Seek out this potent bud for its ability to provide luxurious, long-lasting relaxation. For a particularly eventful evening, pair Neptune OG with other cosmic strains like Mars OG or Jupiter OG.
