Skywalker OG Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Alternative Wellness Center

Grade: A-

Type: Indica-dominant hybrid, we believe this is Dutch Passion’s Skywalker (Mazar x Blueberry) crossed with an OG Kush rather than the Sativa-leaning “Skywalker OG” aka “Sativa OG” due to the heavily Indica-dominant growth pattern

Price: $50/8th inc. tax

Appearance: (8/10)  This Skywalker OG was not a strain that really screamed at us from the wide view — it wasn’t uber-frosty looking, it had a pretty standard gark green + orange pistils coloration — but up close, some pretty magenta and purple colors as well as the well-preserved trichome heads were apparent.  The harvest was pretty good, with plenty of visible ambers in spots, especially close to the stem where the purple coloration seemed most common.  The structure was very sound and the plant seemed healthy at the time of harvest, with no signs of stress aside from a couple of spare immature seeds.

Aroma: (8.75/10)  This was a rather pungent and appealing Kush-dominant smell, with some of the distinctive Bubba Kush notes like coffee and dark chocolate being present pre-grind with a sweet yet skunky fuel bent to it.  When ground, it unleashed a very sharp, fresh, and uncanny anise/black licorice smell that also carried notes of lemon/lime Kush.

Taste: (7.5/10)  There was some disagreement here — one reviewer LOVED the taste, picking up a Lemon Pledge type of thing (like an SFV OG Kush), proclaiming it as one of the best Kush tastes he’s encountered, in large part due to the very long taste duration, which lasted until the bowl was basically ash.  However, the other reviewers (using a clean glass pipe instead of an IncrediBowl, which likely is responsible for the difference) weren’t as impressed, picking up on more piney flavors that didn’t seem to last as long.  The flush seemed adequate, with the final ash turning a speckled light gray and no residual effects such as nose running or throat-clearing.

Effects: A slight haze or cloudy feeling comes over the eyes almost immediately, also causing some pressure fluctuations in that area — there was also a pleasant headband/hat-area buzzing that had us feeling quite good immediately.  Despite that eye haze, the mental state was very clear throughout, even during the period of initial potency.  It was interesting that all of our reviewers reported at least a 50/50% experience, with the majority going 605%+ Sativa effects — much of that is likely due to the clarity we all experienced.  That quality as well as the “stealth” nature of the med make it a good daytime/professional situation choice, though communication was slightly stilted at times.  A warmth in the body and head were the lasting effect of this med as it faded away… it was a pleasant drop back to normality.

Duration: Long, 2.5 – 3 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  General relaxation (mental and physical), mental clarity, strong ocular attention, some appetite stimulation, and relief of mild nausea.

Overall: While the overall potency and somewhat steep fall-off around 1.5 hours left us wishing for slightly more potency overall, it seems that part of that ws due to the overall clarity of the experience — it never felt overbearing or pushy.  The smell and taste package are something that most Kush-lovers will fawn over, some more than others.  The appearance was pretty standard but everything seemed in order grow-wise, which is most important.  It didn’t seem to provide much body relief and felt much more like a Sativa to our staff in general, giving us a sense of calm focus that lent itself to quiet work projects.  This strain is recommended to moderate patients seeking relaxation without the loss of mental clarity — great daytime work type of strain.
