True OG History
The True OG cannabis strain is a pungent and sweet-smelling Kush hybrid that exemplifies the best of California style marijuana. True OG was created in sunny SoCal from selectively bred OG Kush parent strains. The term OG originally meant ‘Ocean Grown’ but many other names have popped up since its rise to prominence. This strain was twice awarded ‘Best Indica’ in the High Times Medical Cup thanks to its battle-ax potency and fruity evergreen taste. True OG is 70% indica with THC levels that have measured between 15% and 26%.
True OG buds have a tapered, pinecone-like shape, with distinctly pointed tops. The leaves curl tightly inward in the dense bud structure. The leaves are pale green and surrounded by curly orange and brown pistils. A film of cloudy white trichomes covers the inner and outer surface of the leaves, giving True OG’s flowers a snowy appearance.
True OG can easily be distinguished from other strains because of its powerful and exotic smell. The flowers are very pungent with sweet pine, citrus, and hashy aromas. When cured, buds of True OG emit a rich odor of crushed pine needles mixed with skunk. On closer examination, there is also an underlying dank, earthy quality like the smell after a rainstorm. Grinding up a piece of True OG yields incense-like notes, carried over from Afghani genetics in the OG Kush lineage.
True OG Terpenes
Myrcene, limonene, caryophyllene, linalool, pinene, and humulene are some of the principal terpenes found in True OG. If you like the scent of citrus and earthy pine with a euphoric feeling, True OG is for you. A combination of more than 9 different terpenes creates a peaceful and focused high.
True OG is a fast-acting indica with up to 26% THC and .2% CBD. This calming hybrid has proven itself to be very effective in treating muscle spasms, joint pains, and many inflammatory conditions. True OG also has mood-altering properties that can temporarily improve the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety.
True OG is not recommended for individuals who are new to using cannabis. It’s perfect for relaxing the body and mind. True OG Kush is effective at treating medical conditions like insomnia, chronic pain, headaches, and nausea. True OG delivers a long-lasting, mellow high and improves focus levels. This hybrid can uplift you when you need it and is the perfect strain to smoke for improving your mood after a challenging day. True OG is extremely potent and should be approached cautiously using small doses if you’re not a regular smoker.
