When you want the best of the best to get mellow with, there’s nothing more reputable than Godfather OG. Extremely popular in Southern California, this strain won Best Indica at the 2013 High Times’ Cannabis Cup and continues to be well-loved today. There are several types of Godfather OG out there, with the most prominent resulting from a cross between Alpha OG and XXX OG. Other variations include crossing OG Kush with Grand Daddy Purple, and a three-way combination of Bubba Kush, LA Confidential, and Granddaddy Purple.
Godfather OG isn’t for beginners, as this strain carries an extremely high THC content. Tested as high as 28%, most nugs found in your local dispensary will average around 25%. For many users, it’s love at first sight, as Godfather OG is a dense nug with purple toned pistils and a thick coating of trichomes. The smell is fantastic, with pungent pine and earth notes hitting your nose. It tastes very similar to its natural aroma, with hints of grape coming through to add a nice fruitiness.
If you’ve never smoked this strain before, you’re in for a treat. Godfather OG offers one of the strongest highs out there, with extremely sedative properties.
Like any good hybrid, you’ll first experience a sense of cerebral euphoria that makes you feel happy and light. As the high continues, you’ll begin to notice full body effects that can quite literally make you immobile if you smoke too much or have a low tolerance.
Revered in the medical cannabis community, Godfather OG is excellent for relieving stress and anxiety, as you become so relaxed that you don’t have a care in the world. Due to its deep sedative effects, many who suffer from insomnia also appreciate how well it works to aid in a good night’s sleep. Munchies are fairly prominent with this strain too, so if you are dealing with a lack of appetite or even nausea, you’ll soon find relief.
While the various types of Godfather OG can vary, it’s a safe assumption that this strain is a pretty easy one to cultivate at home. Plants will thrive inside or outdoors, and after 8 to 9 weeks will produce dense colas. In most cases, you’ll end up with medium-sized plants that offer a good yield.
Use Godfather OG with caution if you’re a bit of a lightweight, as this strain will let you know who’s boss. Try it if you’re having an extremely stressful day or just want to unplug from the world for a few hours.
