SFV OG x Chem D Kush Wide

CHEM VALLEY KUSH STRAIN INFORMATION

General Information

Type:  Sativa-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  Chem D clone x (SFV OG Kush x Afghani) F3

Geographic Origin:  California, USA

Seed Company/Clone: Cali Connection Seeds

Description: A cross of two extremely potent and strong-smelling strains, the lemon pledge funk of the SFV comes through in a major way.

History

Story: Via “Swerve” of Cali Connection:This is a sick hybrid from 2 of the strongest strains on earth in my opinion. Together they are unstoppable.  I have worked this version for over a year now, I used an f3 male that was a stinky little bastard with strong pronounced lemon pledge stench like his mother SFV OG Kush.  The Chem D clone only was glad to meet this new guy for sure..  This hybrid will love and work well with super cropping, LST, and any other training methods.”

Awards:

Growing Information

Flowering Time: 65-75 days

Preferred Growing Medium: See ‘History’ section above for advice from Swerve — it responds well to LST, super-cropping, etc.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Chemical lemon-pine cleaner

Flavor: Much like the smell, citrus-heavy and sharp

Effects: An increasingly strong energetic body feeling, eye/face pressure, and a rising heart beat seems to grow and grow until reaching a peak at nearly 45 minutes into the experience.  This peak is borderline uncomfortable at times, and not for those who suffer from anxiety issues.  The latter part of the effects are a bit crushing, inducing couchlock and causing lots of yawning and stretching.  A real “up then down” experience, it seems to disappear all at once (at about 2 hours 15 minutes).  Recommended for Sativa-lovers who can handle the bucking bronco-like initial effects — it provided quality appetite stimulation, physical energy, and would certainly chase off fatigue.

SFV OG KUSH STRAIN INFORMATION

General Information

Type:  Sativa-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  Unknown lineage, thought to be a “selfed” Ghost’s OG Kush

Geographic Origin:  San Fernando Valley, California

Seed Company/Clone: Clone-only

Description: One of the most prized OG Kush varieties today, the SFV cut is known for its Lemon Pledge funk and its meditative Sativa effects package.

History

Story: Information courtesy of Moonshine: “The SFV is ‘San Fernando Valley’ which most folks know.  What they don’t know is the SFV is actually an S1 (a self seeded) of the ORkid’s Ghost OG Kush.  It is very similar to the ORKid cut with a little healthier/sturdier branches.  The medicinal effects and highs are very close in nature, with the SFV generally being a little more somber and meditative.  Lastly, SFV is widely rumored to be the XXX OG Kush because the SFV is where the porn industry is/was generally located.  In reality, the XXX is likely another S1, this time of the SFV.”

Growing Information

Flowering Time: 70-75 days

Preferred Growing Medium:

Patient Expectations

Scent: Lemon-pine cleaner — it lacks the fuel and skunk elements which are often present in other OG Kush cuts.

Flavor: Lemons and spice, it tastes much like the Ghost cut with a little more straight-up lemon flavor.

Effects: Contemplative and fairly somber, the SFV cut is one that puts the user in a meditative, calm state.  There is a strong and constant pulsing feeling in the body which increases the relaxed feeling.  Only occasional spaciness mars the otherwise clear-headed and aware experience.  Recommended for users who desire a mood-evening strain that will reduce the daily stresses of life while also relaxing the body.
