Seattle, Washington is really proving they should be known for more than just rain, coffee, and the grunge scene. With the Beast Mode duos, Beast Mode OG and the follow-up Beast Mode 2.0, Green Umbrella is showing that they are a name to keep an eye on. There is some back and forth as to whether this strain is a cut from Girl Scout Cookies or a phenotype of OG Kush, and though breeders are not dispelling any rumors just yet, it is more likely that this is a baby OG Kush.
Though cute and dainty, don't let the tiny package these buds come in fool you, as they pack a wallop. These blueish-green, furry nugs are not ones to take lightly and are definitely recommended for experienced users. The high THC levels give this 70/30 indica-dominant strain a nice heady buzz that will chill out even the most high strung smoker. The flavors are almost deceiving to the eye as the kushy pine flavor and aromas hardly match the blue hues that are offset by the orange hairs and crystal white trichomes, making this a mind-bending combination.
Beast Mode OG slams right into you on the first hit. It fills your face and neck with tingles and leaves you saying $$whoa.$$ The hazy dazing effect has a one-hitter quitter feeling to it, and honestly, you may be fine with just that. The numbness that sets into your body thereafter won't necessarily weight you down, but it's not exactly motivating. The physical relaxation of the strain grows over hours and fills you with warmth and calmness. You'll feel energetic at some points and very eased at others. These effects are what make this strain so great for after work fatigue or just a nice mellow evening where you can't exactly turn off for the day, but no one is expecting much from you. It does sometimes induce the munchies, so be sure to have your favorite snack handy.
As with any super potent strain, there are pros and cons in medicine. A definite pro is that this strain will lift your mood and give you the energy you need to get through the rest of the day. As for the cons, this strain is not suitable for everyone. The potency makes it nearly impossible to recommend for anyone below advanced levels of tolerance. However, if you are an experienced smoker you'll love turning to this for pain relief, reducing inflammation and easing stress. Additionally it is helpful in mild cases of fatigue and lack of appetite.
Grow information for Beast Mode OG is hard to come by, so if you happen to get your hands on this fantastic plant, it might serve you well to consult an experienced grower.
The popularity of this strain boomed after the Seahawks won the Superbowl in 2014, making it a hard to find, but incredibly demanded, bud. This is a mood lifting, body calming, awesome strain, so it's not hard to understand why you wouldn't want to take it for a spin.
