OGKZ’s name doesn’t roll off the tongue – it comes from mashing its parents OGKB and Zkittlez together. Their baby has a heavy indica dominance (80/20) whose effects follow suit, a blast of energy followed by a drop into total bliss. As a result, you need to be prepared for stoniness, so this isn’t your ideal wake and bake strain. You want to hang out with the OGKZ in the late afternoon or evening when productivity won’t be an issue for you. It’s a particular favorite for people who get headaches or even migraines after a long workday (or week). Sedation could be the key to your weekend.
OGKZ comes by way of the Humboldt Seed Organization and flowers in about 63 days. You can grow OGKZ indoors or out but you need to adapt your growing style to the climate to keep OGKZ happy. If you grow inside, you should prioritize a longer veg cycle. Outside or in the greenhouse, OGKZ needs to be kept dry and temperate: think Mediterranean temperatures and crisp, dry air. When it does get growing, the strain has dense green buds, spades of forest hues with flashes of vibrant purple, bright red pistils, and a cloak of crystal frost.
The OGKZ aroma is unique – users describe it as a rainbow of mixed flavors. Citrus fruit meets cedar on the initial inhale. The heady, lingering flavor is more grape and cinnamon, with hints of sweet incense, pines, and gas. When you exhale, you’ll get the sour fruit and spicy herbs. It’s a lot.
But the mouthful of spices and fruit draws people to OGKZ more than anything. It gives you a classic stoned feeling, calming and heady, but you don’t have to worry about being sedated. For a lazy weekend afternoon following a busy workweek, you may be dealing with a blow to the head. Migraines can come when you least expect them and turn the end of a busy week into the worst kind of knockout. OGKZ can take care of them as they come up, giving you a new best friend when your head is splitting after a full shift.
The OGKZ effects are long-lasting and relaxing, curative for a bad headache more than for a sleepless night. While you can’t use the strain as much of a sedative, you can use the relaxation to get energized, focused, and happy. It’s the perfect remedy for fatigue and stress, which may be the cause of your migraines to begin with. OGKZ is a heady friend to have at the end of a long workweek. The fruit and herbs can be comforting – the relaxation can be a lifesaver.
