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.

BOG – Sour Strawberry Kush

Grandoggy Purps

Strain: Grandoggy Purps
Lineage: Chem D x Grand Daddy Purple
Breeder: Connoisseur Genetics
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Indica

Appearance: Compact rock hard nugs of bright green and purple, densely coated in trichomes. Orange / Rust pistillate hairs emerge sparsely from coral like clusters of calyx.

Aroma / Flavor: Unbroken, the nugs give off a deep musk often associated with the Bubba Kush family – upon closer inspection and agitation, an astringent chemical note from the chem d makes itself apparent with a sweet musky background from the GDP. The flavor is more similar to the smell of the unbroken nug, a deep musky kush without the chem / gdp nuances.

Overall Effects: The Grandoggy Purps sets in quickly, with a warm body buzz that envelops you from head to toe. The smoke is thick and expansive, leaving a sweet film of kush that lingers. While very potent, the ceiling is relatively low, with increased use prolonging the experience rather than increasing it’s intensity. This strains (This phenotype at least) effects are predominantly oriented in the body, felt mostly in the form of a deep sense of relaxation, well being, and calm. May be useful for those suffering from anxiety, muscle spasms, or insomnia.

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.
