Leia OG

Strain: Leia OG
Lineage: Skywalker Og x (Grape Stomper x Og)
Breeder: Gage Green Genetics
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid

Appearance: Extremely dense, medium sized lime green and purple calyxes, with large resin glands that give the surface a carpet like appearance. Orange / Rust pistillate hairs present throughout.

Aroma / Flavor: The aroma leans towards the Grape Stomper lineage, expressing a deep and dark grape floral smell with the ability to permeate most storage containers like a good kush hybrid should. The grape is less pronounced in the flavor. The taste is by no means bad, just subtle – smooth with mild expansion, and a sweet flavor that hints at grape on the exhale.

Overall Effects: Like most OG hybrids, the Leia OG expedites your trip from sobriety with it’s effects being felt soon after exhaling the first toke. Drawing from both the sativa and indica spectrums, this hybrid provides a functional stone felt both in mind and body. While a body buzz was apparent it was by no means debilitating, allowing for daytime use by those in need of the medicinal effects of an indica without the fear of couchlock. Mild dissociative effects, experienced as a detachment from self, allowing for clear objective thought. May benefit those who suffer from anxiety, appetite loss, aching joints, and chronic pain.

Martian Kush

Strain: Martian Kush
Lineage: Martian Mean Green (Sharksbreath x G13Haze) x Og #18
Breeder: DNA Genetics
Sativa/Indica: 60% Indica / 40% Sativa

Appearance: Medium-small sized calyxes make up this dense, but not overly so sample. Light orange / rust colored pistillate hairs throughout. Large resin glands give the nugs an appearance that looks as if they were dipped in granular sugar.

Aroma / Flavor: The initial aroma given off is a deep kushy musk reminiscent of the Og #18, but when broken or agitated an additional lemon / lime complexity is revealed. The flavor leans more towards the martian, with the lemon lime flavor dominating, balanced by a Kush musk on the exhale that lingers and makes for a more expansive smoke.

Overall Effects: Martian Kush is a great hybrid that pulls from both the sativa and indica spectrum to deliver a well balanced state of being in it’s consumers. The Martian Mean Green’s haze influence shows in this strains steady but gradual onset, carrying the user into a clear and blissful motivated state which lasts. While clear and functional, the effects are by no means racy – the OG #18 influence helps to keep your feet on the ground while your heads in the clouds. Great for getting things done, and wiping clean your individual window of perception. An increased ability to focus may make this strain suitable for those with ADD/ADHD, though individual results / reactions may vary.

Appearance: Extremely resinous (would make a great source of hash) light green nugs composed of small swollen densely packed bracts with short rust colored pistilate hairs throughout.

Aroma / Flavor: The aroma of the broken herb is delicate, sweet and floral. The flavor when smoked is more complex; smooth, lightly fruity, and genuinely reminiscent of a white sparkling wine.

Overall Effects: A perfect balance of Indica and Sativa, Champagne produces a soothing upbeat buzz that’s both heady and functional. Potent but by no means debilitating, rendering a dreamy euphoric head-space where your both alert and calm, accompanied by a mild but apparent body buzz. While there’s no shared lineage, I find the effects to be very similar to that of Blue Dream in it’s well balanced buzz.

Po #1 (Sour Double X SoCal Master Kush)

Aroma / Flavor: The skunky fuel smell of the Sour Diesel is present but substantially softened by the influence of the Master Kush, which adds a sweeter hashy flavor and smell. While less pungent than the pure Sour Diesel, the smell is still likely to escape all but air tight containers.

Overall Effects: PO #1 is a powerful indica dominant hybrid that calms both mind and body with it’s smooth and flavorful smoke. It sets in gradually, with effects ranging from a dreamy stone to full on couch-lock depending on the quantity consumed.

NASA OG (Planetary Reserve)

NASA OG

Strain: NASA OG
Lineage: Og Kush Hybrid / Selection
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid

Appearance: Large light green calyxes coated with trichomes that appear almost sandy. The large calyxes are accompanied by amber / rust pistils, coming together to form sizable buds that are slightly spear shaped. Overall great structure, and a density that will please both grower and patient.

Aroma / Flavor: Classic Og Kush funk with sweet and hashy innuendos.

Overall Effects: Calming, dreamy, and comforting without leaving you locked to the couch. The onset is quick, like with most OG’s, though not immediate by any means. The flavor spectrum though distinctly OG is more floral and sweet (Almost Candied) than with some of the more Sour and Fuel leaning Og’s which some people may prefer. The smoke is expansive and potent, but still gentle on the throat and lungs, leaving behind an almost sugary coating of flavor. For the seasoned smoker this OG may be the perfect daytime companion – while the effects are powerful, they are not particularly encumbering leaving me both stoned AND motivated…..and a little hungry. One of the better Og’s from the planetary series, though from what I’ve sampled they’re all good!

P-90X OG

Strain: P-90X OG
Lineage: Og Kush Hybrid
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid
Dispensary: SFCHC in Santa Fe Springs, CA

Appearance: Densely packed clusters of small trichome coated light green calyxs with rust colored pistils throughout. Buds were sizable for their weight with good structure and density, most showing a sativa influenced spear shape.

Aroma / Flavor: A unique lemon lime twist on the OG flavor, that’s both lighter and more citrusy, while still retaining the classic astringency and hashiness. The aroma and flavor are one and the same with this sample – very smooth, with lemon lime nuances accompanying the OG flavor till the last puff, signs of a great dry and cure.

Overall Effects: Euphoric and dreamy, the high sets in gradually with the exhale of the first drag or bong rip. The sharp lemon lime nuances that accompany the classic OG in this sample linger behind in your mouth long after the smoke is released. Though extremely potent, the buzz of the P90X is not debilitating nor lethargy producing; great for those with a high tolerance that need a strain that’s well rounded in it’s effects and can be used throughout the day without putting you out. Potentially useful for those with depression or anxiety, the effects of the P90X are uplifting and cerebral with just enough indica influence to take the edge off. A meditative sativa-dominant buzz of the highest order.

Jedi OG

Jedi OG

Strain: Jedi OG
Lineage: Og Kush Hybrid
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid
Dispensary:Trinity Wellness in La Puente, CA

Appearance: The Jedi is caked with far more trichomes than the average OG cross, leaving a gooey sticky layer on all fingers who dare to break her down without a grinder. This particular sample was grown and cured to perfection, with a styrofoam like texture that rips apart into nice calyx sized chunks. A few purple black sugar leaves spot the buds, making them look all the more exotic. Typical Og structure, tightly packed medium-small calyxs with orange hairs, spear shaped buds.

Aroma / Flavor: Earthy and pungent, the Jedi OG is clearly an OG through and through. You smell this one creeping through the air the second a jar is cracked. More musky than sour, the flavor leaves behind a complex astringent flavor reminiscent of a strong cleaning product.

Overall Effects: Smooth and expansive, this sample of Jedi OG really showcases what OG’s are all about. The high is euphoric and powerful, making the whole world seem better and brighter for no good reason. Not as heavy and encumbering as some of the other OG crosses if used in moderation, the Jedi OG is great for stimulating the mind and pursuing something creative, whether visually, musically, or otherwise. The high is comforting for the seasoned smoker, enveloping all who indulge with a warm happy buzz and general sense of well being that leaves your third eye pulsing.
