The popular strain dubbed $100 OG is believed to derive its name from its expensive reputation when it popped up in Hollywood's market several years ago. When you open up your package of this strain, expect to get hit with the heavy OG scent of skunk, diesel and lemons. The taste is a bit more pleasant, coming off as sweet and earthy.
Before you break up your $100 OG flower, you'll notice that a good crop produces very dense, camouflage green buds with small wispy burnt orange pistils. The trichomes are spread neatly across the entirety of the bud, giving it a soft, frosty appeal.
This strain is definitely a potent one, as reported by consumers. Its THC percentage levels have been seen to fluctuate in the 20's. Veteran consumers have explained that they look for $100 OG because of its heavy body buzz that's usually accompanied with a cerebral high. Basically, they say, you get the best of both indica and sativa effects so long as you don't over-indulge in this strain. This may not be surprising, since it's a 50/50 hybrid.
$100 OG also tends to have a higher CBD level than your average cannabis strain, typically reaching 3%. This may explain why the body high feels so soothing. Reviewers have noted when consuming $100 OG, expect to feel calm in the body, energetic in the mind, and a bit creative although you'll probably feel weary after an hour or two.
