Apothecary Genetics named their strain Platinum OG for the silver sheen that coats the lime green of these buds. The mother of this strain is a clone only strain sometimes called Platinum OG but more often called Platinum Kush or Platinum OG Kush. She is most likely composed of Master Kush and a landrace Afghanistan Indica, though some say it is Master Kush and Mendo Purps. The father is Apothecary Genetics favorite OG Kush Male. Platinum OG has reportedly been tested to have a THC range between 17 and 24 percent.
Platinum OG's effects tend to start out high, elevating and easing the mind, but they quickly turn low often having a sedative effect on users and should be used with caution. Because of this it makes great night time medication for depression, stress and anxiety. The narcotic-like body buzz may also treat chronic pain, muscle spasms and insomnia. It may also help alleviate migraines and the effects of other mood disorders.
The taste of this strain may have users thinking they just bit into a pine cone. It can be grown both inside and outdoors. Platinum OG flowers for around nine weeks, often being ready outdoors by the first of October. It is not keenest on temperature changes but if grown properly can produce between 200 and 350 grams per square meter.
