OG Kush (Verde Wellness Center)Review

Appearance

This sample looked almost brown from a distance, with its yellowish-green cast and orange pistils — it appears to have been cured for quite some time, as the nugs had lost much of their distinctness.  The biggest nug was rather odd-shaped, and that carried into the macro level, where the mostly cloudy trichomes seemed mutated and fused at times.  This sample was mostly attractive to those who know what they’re looking for — good harvest timing and a long cure was evident.

Flavor

Very much like the smell, it was a package of spicy and piney flavors, but also present was a strong earthiness that reminded us of expensive soil.  The flavor seemed most evident on the exhale and aftertaste, but it was fairly pungent overall.  The smoke got harsher and tasted worse towards the end but wasn’t particularly harsh — the expansion was average.  The remaining medium-light gray ash showed a quality flush.

Euphoria

(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Ocular relief (glaucoma, etc.), mood elevation, mild pain relief, and possible migraine relief (lots of pressure cycling in the head/face/eyes).

Overall

This was a bit of a divisive OG Kush for our staff, with one member really liking it and another thinking it was below average for the strain.  The summation is somewhere in the middle — essentially, it was very potent but dropped off sharply at 1.5 – 2 hours, leaving us entirely by 3 hours.  The medical uses were varied but none really stuck out as “the one”, making this more of a recreational experience for our staff.  Patients who appreciate a very long cure and samples that are dense/dry would like this one a lot, while those seeking bright colors and distinct trichomes will be disappointed.  This particular OG is recommended for afternoon/early evening use, as it serves to wake you up with head games initially, then drop you into a relaxed functionality after that.
