Sour OG Kush Strain Review

Name: Sour OG Kush

Dispensary: Green Works SD

Grade: B+

Type: Hybrid (About 60% Sativa, 40% Indica)

Lineage: Sour Diesel crossed with OG Kush.

Price: $20/gram, $55/8th, $110/ quarter, $210 half ounce /$350 ounce 

Looks: Dense, chunky nugs. Mostly dark green buds covered in orange hairs. Brittle to the touch, but stickier when broken apart.

Smell: Pine, citrus, fuel and funk. The scent was slightly grassy and a little sour. Smelled a bit closer to Sour Diesel than OG Kush.

Taste: A piney, musty and funky flavor. It tasted like a pinier Sour Diesel. Smooth vapor with heavy lung expansion.

Buzz: Relaxed, but energized stone. Spacey, mildly euphoric and slightly racy with a comfortable body buzz. Didn’t lock me to the couch. Best for the afternoon and early evening.

Summary: An interesting hybrid that leaned a little closer to Sour Diesel than OG Kush. I prefer the effects of OG Kush to Sour Diesel; this batch was a little too racy for my taste.

Smell: Fruity, sweet and earthy. The scent is reminiscent of blueberries.

Taste: A sweet and fruity flavor very similar to the smell. Smooth vapor with moderate lung expansion.

Buzz: Relaxed euphoric high. Clear headed, creative and cerebral. The body buzz was comforting, but not couch lock-y. Functional and not overpowering. Good for the afternoon or early evening.

Summary: A sweet tasting strain with a pleasant high. Not the heaviest hitter, but enjoyable nonetheless.
