The San Fernando Valley OG overtime has become a favorite on the West Coast due to its impressive relaxing properties. You can almost bet your favorite dispensary will have it in stock for you. As the name implies, the SFV OG originates from the beloved OG Kush. This strain is an Sativa dominant hybrid (70% Sativa). You do have to pay attention that while having similar names, the SFV OG is not the same as the SFV OG Kush: The latter is a cross between the former and an Afghani.
Growing SFV OG is relatively easy, and thus is an ideal strain for novice growers to cultivate. This plant can be grown both indoors and outdoors but thrives especially in a dry and temperate environment. The plant is expected to flower around the 8-9 week mark, resulting in an average sized plant which can yield anywhere between 300-400g/m2, so not a substantial yield by any means, but it’s quality more than makes up for the smaller harvest.
The SFV OG carries olive green buds with chocolate colored pistils, covered by layer of tightly packed trichomes. The smell is definitely one which isn’t easy to hide. The aroma is characterized as being coarse because of the pungent lemon and pine scents. By the end of a joint, the smoke of the SFV OG will leave your mouth tasting as if you have been binging on lemon candy and some pecan nuts.
The most recent tests from BudGenius on the SFV OG has shown THCa levels between 17% and 20%. When it comes to CBDa levels, the SFV OG always scored below 1%.
After consuming SFV OG you will almost immediately notice the onset of a relaxing and sedative high that will start to take over your body and mind, leaving you moderately couch locked but in an enjoyable and relaxing manner. These effects are also accompanied by a feeling of elevation and euphoria that comes from the strains indicated side, bringing about a real positive vibe that can help counter even the most stressful of situations. You should be ready for some giggles so maybe not the best strain to smoke before a funeral.
Due to the potent effects, SFV OG is an ideal strain for treating conditions such as mild to moderate depression, chronic pains, muscle spasms, and stress. It is reported that this strain is especially successful in fighting chronic migraines and headaches. This might well be a godsend for those of you suffering from that horrible persistent pressure in your head.
Owing to its high potency, SFV OG’s can at times bring about slight paranoia and anxiety if smoked in great quantities or if you are an inexperienced cannabis user, so it is recommended that novices either consume a small amount or stick to less potent strains. More conventional side effects include having a dry mouth and itchy eyes. You might also want to grab a refreshing beverage to optimise the experience but I’ve heard ice cream also does the trick!
