Bright orange and red hairs jumping out from washout green buds, covered with a soft, thin layer of sparkling crystals. Below these color hues, standing out for their size, we find rich dark green leaves growing over double the plant’s width in a protective manner, making the Goji OG strain a total visual feast.
Its name refers to the Asian species of a bright red, sour berry from the Himalaya, also called Goji berry or wolfberry, widely used in traditional Asian cuisine and alternative medicine remedies. Even though its parent strains are not so popular, the results have been fantastic with users. In fact, the Goji OG strain, aka OG Kush, has won several awards, including 2nd Place Non-Solvent Hash in the 2014 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup San Francisco and 1st Place Concentrate in the 2013 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup Seattle.
Goji OG is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain with a THC content that goes around 12% to 26%, typically 22%, with long-lasting cerebral effects. In contrast, it has a low CBD content, usually below 0.5%.
Unique as the Himalayan Goji Berry, OG Kush is an aromatic medley of flavors. This tremendous strain has an intense fruity aroma, with strong notes of an attractive fresh red and blackberries, strawberry, and licorice mix. The Goji OG strain has a slightly woody scent with earthy undertones that mix with the smell of sweet berries. Its dominant terpene, called Limonene, gives it an irresistible tropical citrus touch.
Moreover, its sour taste resembles berries and cherries, much like Goji itself, making a flavorful explosive sensation. Each time you exhale, you crave just another drag to experience a fresh and warm cooked berry pie.
The best thing about the OG Kush strain is that you can take full advantage of the high potency of its intense mental properties and enjoy its powerful mind high while you feel physically normal. As a Sativa-dominant hybrid, it doesn’t have relevant physical effects, which makes this strain suitable at any time of the day, without worrying about becoming drowsy or couch-locked.
Once you smoke it, the effects of the Goji OG strain start to feel almost immediately. First, you notice an energizing head-rush with a slight body melt. As you keep smoking, a relaxing wave takes over your body, spreading quickly, turning your mind into a peaceful and calming sea of happy thoughts.
As the high develops, an uplifting sensation encourages the desire to do something purposeful, usually in creative ways. The Goji OG strain helps you keep focused through projects or tasks that require a higher attention level and the ability to think outside of the box.
If you’re always on the go, this beauty is also for you. Goji OG helps you be talkative and optimistic, with an extra energy boost, ready to have fun while going out with some friends.
Medical Benefits and Common Usage
Goji OG’s low CBD-contain is not considered suitable for medical users dealing with significant physical health, seizure disorders, or cancer. However, it has many positive effects thanks to the synergistic effect between the cannabinoids and terpenes, making Goji OG a commonly recommended medicinal strain for managing some mental health conditions to its positive and uplifting mind high.
The two most popular uses of Goji OG are depression and stress. As we said before, this strain will leave you with a clear-head and upbeat feel that pushes away negative thoughts out of your mind. Its long-lasting effects also might help with ADD/ADHD and Bipolar disorder.
Despite having so few physical effects, the Goji OG strain can help relieve mild aches and pains, such as PMS, Migraines, Arthritis, and Muscular dystrophy.
The usual side effects that new users have claimed are dizziness, headaches, fatigue, anxiety, and paranoia. For newbies, the sudden rush of cerebral high may cause them to worry.
As relaxation envelopes your body, users tend to feel hungry, and their appetite increases. Lucky for you, this strain won’t let you couch-locked, so it should be easy to get up and find some food.
