Sin Valley OG
About Sin Valley OG
Sin Valley OG is an indica-leaning hybrid with a well-balanced high. Appropriately enough, this strain was created by Sin City Seeds as a cross between San Fernando Valley OG Kush and Blue Power. What results is a sweet and musky aroma that complements this bud’s long-lasting effects. Sin Valley OG’s THC levels have been measured at between 22% and 31%.
Flowers of Sin Valley OG are not particularly impressive in the visual department. These smaller-than-average buds have a tight, characteristically indica internal structure and adhere in roughly spherical shapes. The leaves on these pebbly clusters are a bright shade of spring green and are twisted through with curly orange pistils. Finally, a thick blanket of translucent white trichomes covers all visible nooks and crannies of these dense flowers, accounting for their psychoactivity.
When properly cured, the dominant scent that jumps off of buds of Sin Valley OG is that of tart and pungent lemon. A closer whiff may pick up on some dank earthiness as well, redolent of soil and dried leaves. Grinding up or breaking up these tight buds, meanwhile, yields more of a hashy, sour-sweet funk, possibly due to the influence of OG Kush in the strain’s genetics. If combusted, these flowers burn with a thick and possibly acrid smoke that can be irritating and cough-inducing for some. On the exhale, through, this smoke leaves behind flavors of sweet citrus.
Sin Valley OG reveals its high relatively quickly, exerting head-focused effects sometimes before users have even exhaled its heavy smoke. Initial sensations like a throbbing around the temples and cheekbones or a flushing in the cheeks may persist for a few minutes. Once these strange tics die down, smokers may find their thought moving more quickly than usual. Ideas (or even objects) that might not otherwise seem very interesting can hold a new fascination; similarly, an amorphous sort of free association can illuminate surprising new connections between seemingly unrelated things. This kind of cerebral, plugged-in thinking can be a great way to ruminate on solutions to entrenched logistical or personal problems. It may also enable work on complicated, detail-oriented work tasks. Meanwhile, smokers who aren’t in a very productive mood can simply enjoy Sin Valley OG’s high as they go about mundane activities like errands.
As this high wears on, its physical effects become harder and harder to ignore. As a wave of relaxation rolls through the core, users may be able to breathe more deeply and easily. They may also find some relief from joint and muscle pain. Although the strain’s mental edge persists through this newly sedative phase, consumers may lose some of their earlier motivation and may be more likely to kick back for a snack or a binge-watching session than to plow through a busy agenda. Because of its slow decline in energy levels, Sin Valley OG is recommended for late afternoon through evening consumption.
This strain’s wide-ranging recreational effects can have some value for medical cannabis patients too. The mental activation that comes with its onset can help those with attention deficit disorders to zone in on one task at a time. Its upbeat, positive mood may also temporarily soothe the symptoms of stress and depression. Physically speaking, this strain can take the sting out of aches and pains associated with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may improve everyday discomforts like nausea or cramps. In high enough doses and sufficiently relaxed conditions, this indica may even lull smokers to sleep, making it a potential treatment for insomnia. Because its early sense of “mindrace” can be disorienting or upsetting for some, Sin Valley OG is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
Seeds of Sin Valley OG are not available for sale online. Those looking to grow the strain at home should obtain clippings from healthy plants, which can be propagated as genetically identical clones. These can be fostered indoors or outdoors in a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. The strain’s indica-typical flowers suggest that its plants have a short and bushy stature with strong lateral branches; the buds also imply that Sin Valley OG’s crops are ready for harvest within about 8 to 9 weeks.
With a sky-high THC content, Sin Valley OG is sure to impress cannabis newbies and veterans alike. When toking this bud, be sure to get any obligations out of the way before its heavy body stone kicks in!
