True OG is a bred of the very popular OG Kush, a well-known indica strain. It originates from the Southern part of California and developed by Elemental Seeds. OG means “ocean grown”, suggesting that the strain is ocean grown in a Pacific climate. However, the abbreviation is often confused with “original gangster”. True OG has been snagging the second spot in the High Times Medical Cup since 2010. The flowers of True OG has a very crispy citrus and pungent evergreen smell.
True OG has three popular flavors: earthy, pine and citrus. Its THC content can go up to 24%. It has a slightly lower THC content than that of the parent strain OG Kush. Just like the parent strain, it has a very low amount of CBD. When consumed moderately, True OG can help users to feel more relaxed and focused. It can increase productivity during the day time for any kind of tasks that require stamina. The tasks can range from routine work and house chores. It is also good to activities that require creativity and the stimulation of mind for ideas. However, as the intake gets excessive, the users no longer feel relaxed and productive. These effects wear off which results in reduced productivity.
True OG is quite strong and gives a long-lasting mellow effect with a more focused head high. It helps medical cannabis patients with its great mood-altering abilities in alleviating the symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. It is also known to reduce pains due to arthritis, lupus, as well as common injuries. When taken in a high dosage, those suffering from insomnia can have a deep peaceful sleep.
However, those who tend to get panic attack or have low THC tolerance should be cautious. This is because consuming this strain could lead to excess mental stimulation and paranoia. Like its parent strain, OG Kush, dry mouth and eyes are the notable side-effects of True OG.
