About OG 18
Smoke your cares away with the ultimate strain for relaxation - OG 18. This indica-dominant hybrid weighs in at 70/30 and will certainly allow you to unwind after a long day with ease. It’s won multiple awards, including the High Times’ Cannabis Cup in 2009 and 2010, as well as earning victories at the Spannabis Indoor Hydro Cup and the Europe Champions Cup both in 2010.
DNA Genetics created this powerful strain, also known as Private Reserve, as a phenotype of OG Kush, bringing along with it some typical diesel like flavors. It ranks fairly moderately when it comes to THC, averaging about 18%, but can create some psychedelic effects if it’s overdone. Buds of OG 18 are sticky and dense with a super pungent smell of diesel and sour earthy notes. While the taste is just as potent, it’s not completely off-putting to more experienced smokers.
OG 18 brings a strong head high pretty instantaneously, allowing any lingering stress or worries to melt away. Don’t expect to be too terribly productive after hitting this strain, as you’re more than likely going to be in an ultra-relaxed state of mind. You’ll feel OG 18 in both your head and body, and while you’ll most likely be pretty sedated, your mind will be happy, clear, and you might come down with the giggles.
As your high starts to fade away, you’ll most likely feel rather hungry, which makes this strain ideal for those with appetite concerns. Others in the medical cannabis community love the stress relieving properties and the overall reduction in pain, inflammation, and help with mental health concerns. Although many find they are clear-headed and euphoric on OG 18, it should be noted that this is still a strong and long-lasting high that will completely calm your body. It’s often used before bed to help with insomnia, although others find they can function fairly normally while high.
OG 18 is cooperative when it comes to growing, doing well in a greenhouse, indoors, or outside. Highly resistant to mold and mildew, it grows best in Mediterranean climates but will pretty much thrive when in the hands of even the most novice of growers. Plants will reach between 3 and 5 feet and put out a pretty decent yield, and its flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks is ideal.
Whether you need to get away from nagging life concerns or you woke up with chronic pain, OG 18 is a jack of all trades. Make sure to use moderation with this strain, and prepare yourself for an uplifting experience that gently and slowly fades away as you come back down to reality.
