OG Kush #18 Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Rev. B. Baker/GreenFaith Ministries

Grade: B+

Type: Sativa-dominant Hybrid  [A selected OG Kush feminized to produce seed stock, from DNA Genetics]

Price: Negotiable/Call to Ask

Appearance: (8/10)  Seriously frosty popcorn-style buds that appear almost yellow due to the thick layers of mostly clear/cloudy trichomes that cover all surfaces.  It could’ve had a slightly better manicure towards the bottom, but the leaves that were left on are so frosty that it isn’t an issue.  Above-average density and a perfect dryness level made this a well-textured sample that burned great and seemed to leave a ‘breadcrub trail’ of kief wherever it traveled.

Aroma: (8.5/10)  DNA Genetics’ website says that they chose this OG because she was more sour than usual, and they didn’t lie.  This reminded us of a particularly sour-smelling Diesel strain more than a Kush simply because it was so citrusy and sour smell-wise.  It has some of the pungent chemical, fuel, and skunk elements you’d expect in a ChemDawg, which are most present pre-grind… but once it’s disturbed, the lemony sour scent comes out in a big way and dominates.

Taste: (8/10)  Like the scent, the taste was extremely sour, with a strong hit of lemon zest and some of the fuel and skunk tastes.  The aftertaste carried the fuel and skunk much more than the sourness and lingered for quite a while on the palate after exhale.  Though it was above-average expansion-wise, it was perfectly smooth and didn’t make us cough… a rather pleasurable experience overall.

Effects: The initial effect felt was a pulsing body high that was also present in the head, which felt a bit wobbly and heavy on the neck.  It was also felt strongly in the sinuses, which felt almost swollen without being unpleasant amounts of pressure.  A bit of head-spinning feeling at the onset, which increased until its peak at about 20 minutes, culminating in a very strong pulsing feeling all over the body.  There was some heart-racing, and one reviewer reported hearing/feeling his heart thumping throughout his torso.  A bit of ‘headband’ feeling, with a constrictive tightness around the crown of the head… interestingly enough, some auditory distortions similar to the Headband from A Cut Above were noticed as well.  It calmed down about an hour in, leaving a relaxed body and a less-racey feeling while moving more into the eyes than at first.

Duration: Medium, 2 – 2.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Energy, anti-depression, muscle tension relief, possible headache/ocular relief, appetite stimulation, mood elevation.

Overall: A great-tasting and smelling sample that reminded us more of a nice citrusy Diesel than a Kush, this strain was top-notch aside from its relatively short duration.  Especially after packing such a punch at first, it was sort of disappointing to be back to normal after only about 2 hours.  However, the finish was clean and relaxing, with no Sativa ‘crash’ or other negative effects.  A stinging potency that really took our reviewers by surprise initially gave way to a more relaxing and all-purpose body feeling that would be nice for almost any patient.  This strain isn’t for the faint of heart at first, but it rounded out to provide a good amount of energy, mood elevation, and relief from muscle tension.  It was well-handled and grown naturally, resulting in a deliciously citrus-tinged Kush experience.

    One of the best reviews I have read anywhere. Other reviews focus only on smells/tastes, and this one actually describes the physical effects. I wish other review writers would come across this and see how it’s done. Right on!!

    Thank you very much for the kind words. As we’re in Colorado, a medical state, we want to make sure to keep that the focus of our site. We’re all connoisseurs here at KR and appreciate the finer subtleties of cannabis, but really it comes down to effectiveness and how one can expect to feel when using a certain strain, so we try to focus on that.

    First I have smoked most strains legally as a med patient in Michigan for almost 4 years. It really seemed to make me relax but not drift off like many Indica’s in the kush family. My tolerance is very high so it wore off within about an 1 1/2, I was not disappointed. I like Jack the Ripper also, try reviewing that one if possible.
