This bush of dark leaves is disease and mold-resistant and yields well with proper care. The sedative properties of L.A Con is no joke, and it is one of the reasons why those who suffer from muscle spasms and chronic pain choose this bud over the most popular indica strains.

Sour OG is a powerful sativa strain that comes from the iconic OG Kush and Sour Diesel.

The delicious lemon and pine flavor of this strain mix perfectly with its kush undertone, providing an uplifting head high for users.
