Sour OG, also known as 818 Headband, is a cross of two legendary strains – OG Kush and Sour Diesel. Sour OG is a 50/50 hybrid strain that offers a balanced Sativa/Indica sensation, an active mind and calm body. The THC level generally sits at around 20 percent when grown properly with negligible CBD content of roughly 0.2 percent. This strain won 1st place in the 2011 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup Michigan hybrid category.
The strain is green with crystals and orange hair. The buds are round, dense, and sticky with large trichomes, the appendages on the plant. Sour OG smells like lemon, pine, and gasoline, with a fruity and sweet undertone. Some fans have described the taste as like nothing you have ever tasted before.
When you choose Sour OG, you can expect to feel peaceful and in a good mood. It won’t drag you down and you will still be able to get things done. The high comes on quickly, gets intense, and dissipates after a few hours, when you will wind down and still feel relaxed.
Medicinal users enjoy the strain for its sedative effects. People with pain, depression, anxiety, and stress use Sour OG as it gives a super stoned feeling. Some medical users have said one hit is enough and relieves all pain and worry. Others like it for the munchie effect; people that have trouble eating may find themselves seriously hungry after puffing on Sour OG.
Recreational users think of Sour OG differently. They say it is fast-acting and incites dreamlike mind-blowing effects. They say the strain works well in the head, offering a happy and talkative vibe or a euphoric high. Beginners might want to choose another strain. Sour OG’s super dank smell indicates a potent medicine best served to intermediate or advanced cannabis users who can handle its sedative and euphoric effects.
Sour OG grows well indoors and outdoors with an average flowering time of 8 weeks. Indoors, simple hydroponics work well and the plant grows to medium height. The plant’s colas have excellent structure and medium yield. Seeds are available feminized and clones are also available.
