This indica dominant hybrid is sometimes referred to as the San Fernando Valley OG. It was created by the masters at the infamous Cali Connection Farms. It won third place at the High Times Cannabis Cup Indica Category in 2012. Its buds are small and are olive green in color. They are covered in contrasting reddish-brown pistils and white trichomes.
Flavor and Effects of SFV OG
The SFV OG cannabis strain has a balanced aroma that is sweet oranges mixed with hints of diesel. It also offers a flavor profile that you’ll surely love : citrusy pine with a sweet and skunky aftertaste that lingers on the tongue. It produces a harsh and acrid smoke, however, so vaporizing this strain is recommended.
The onset of this strain’s effect starts with a cerebral rush. It clears the mind and allows a free flow of happy thoughts to wash over you. This buzz then flows down to the body, relaxing your muscles and freeing any knots and tensions that may be deep-seated. Initially, the effects are not heavy on the body. However, as the high signs of progress, you will feel more and more sedated. You will eventually be lulled in to a couch-locked position and then to a peaceful, heavy sleep. On the comedown, you will also feel your appetite is stimulated so make sure to have some snacks handy.
What are the Medicinal Benefits of SFV OG
The SFV OG is a favorite strain for many cannabis patients. Its initial cerebral buzz is a great reliever for any symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and other mental issues. You will feel all worrying thoughts and feelings washed away, and quickly replaced with happy ones. You will feel motivated and inspired to do things that make you feel good. In addition, its physical buzz also makes the SFV OG a great pain reliever for many patients suffering from headaches, migraines, spasms, cramps or even arthritis.
Negative Effects of SFV OG
Dry mouth or cottonmouth are usual side effects when consuming the SFV OG marijuana strain. This is usually followed by dry eyes. Both effects, however, are common to cannabis use and are usually mild. These are usually caused by cannabinoids that are present in marijuana, and they are easily managed by making sure to stay hydrated throughout the high.
Growing SFV OG
The SFV OG strain requires some experience to grow. While it thrives in just about any kind of environment indoors, outdoors, and greenhouse settings it requires lots of nutrients to reach its full potential. The plant prefers a reverse osmosis water growing method to ensure that the soil maintains a pH balance of between 6.0 to 6.5. In addition, it also requires regular topping to ensure sunlight reaches all the branches and leaves that may otherwise be hidden.
