San Fernando Valley's most popular attractions include a liquor store with a giant neon clown and a vast number of studios that call it home, but with the existence of this potent strain we're all hoping that won't be where the list ends. These unknown breeders paid homage to their hometown by calling this descendent of OG Kush "818 OG," the area code of San Fernando Valley.
Some will confuse this strain for another that is named for the same area of California, however, unlike SFV OG, 818 OF has a distinctively sweet, fruity flavor palate that includes sweet pine and lemon notes. The aromas of this bud are similar, with a bit of a pungent nose that includes the pine and lemon scents as well as slight floral undertones, complimenting the orange hairs that cover the flower. With THC levels hitting an average of 19%, these spade shaped, dark green nugs are a potent little force to be reckoned with.
The effects of this strain are well balanced between mind and body and will loosen up any muscle tension that may be plaguing you. With an initial rush of euphoria, users feel a flightiness that leaves you feeling tingly and happy from head to toe. These effects can last for hours and are typically accompanied or even replaced by a fully relaxed, almost sedated high that flows through your body and takes you back down to your couch. You'll enjoy this phase for the rest of the high, growing deeper and deeper into the body and taking you off to sleep.
818 OG is used for the treatment of a myriad of ailments, including mild cases of chronic pain, inflammation, muscle tension, or even tremors. The sedative-like properties ease your body into relaxation and smooth out any tightness or minor aches and pains. 818 OG will eventually put the user to sleep, so it is highly recommended for those who suffer from insomnia. Mental health issues, depression, and chronic stress can be treated with the use of this strain in smaller doses. It is not recommended for anxiety or PTSD.
Growing 818 OG has an average flowering time of 7 to 9 weeks and is a moderate to difficult grow. Beginners may have a hard time keeping this plant flourishing. She'll do fine inside or out, but intermediate to advanced experience is recommended. Yields vary from average to above average depending on the grower and growing conditions.
This mouthwatering strain is perfect for many occasions, but especially as a nightcap. Though it has an initial wave of energy, the soothing feeling you get after a few minutes is sure to melt away any woes from the day. Because of its outstanding flavors and stellar effects, you'll be reaching for 818 OG again and again.
