OG Kush #18 (Green Faith Ministry)
OG Kush #18 Medical Marijuana Strain Review
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.
