The OG 18 is like the OG Kush but more refined and with an enhanced sour flavour. It is the product of the combination of the Chem Dawg genetics with that of the OG Chem. At least ⅓ more productive than the original OG and with a much more intense sour taste than that of the Chem Dawg, OG 18 is the ultimate strain for relaxation.
Over the years OG 18 has collected an impressive amount of awards. Indeed, this indica dominant hybrid has won 2 High Times’ Cannabis Cup, and has been awarded at the Spannabis Indoor Hydro Cup and at the Europe Champions Cup.
Thick, dense and extremely resinous buds make up this plant, which is much stronger and fatter than its parents. Highly resistant to mould and mildew, OG 18 can grow well in all sorts of environments, from greenhouse to outdoor spaces. As usual, Mediterranean regions will do it wonders. In northern regions, however, it will also do well.
Taking care of this plant is not a brainer, even the most novice growers will succeed. Reaching anything between 90 and 150 cm. OG 18 has a pretty decent yield that ranges between 500 and 600g/m². It takes between 8 to 9 weeks for it to flower, which makes it a good option for the more impatient growers.
OG 18 has an unmistakably sour smell. It is so sour that it might even scare away some of the less experienced smokers. When smoked however, even though still very sour, the taste is not completely off-putting. Complementing the sour taste and smell are some earthy and diesel notes.
The effects of the OG 18 hit pretty instantaneously. As soon as you start smoking you will start feeling the strong head high that comes with this strain. Happy, clear headed and relaxed, all your worries will be swiped away with this plant. Do not be fooled by the clear headedness this plant gives, however, as you will likely not be able to do anything productive once the effects hit you.
OG 18 is the go-to plant if you are looking for body relaxation and calmness. Be prepared for strong and long lasting effects. Some would say this a good strain to be smoked before going to bed, although there are some accounts of people who can still function perfectly fine after smoking the plant. Watch out how much of it you smoke as, if overdone, you might end up having some psychedelic effects.
