SFV OG Kush
San Fernando Valley OG Kush, or simply SFV OG Kush for short, is an award-winning hybrid strain produced by Swerve, one of the famous breeders over at Cali Connection Farms from the beautiful Valley itself. Not to be confused with its predecessor, SFV OG, this strain is a phenotype of the cannabis community cult favourite, OG Kush, with a complex genetic lineage mixing multiple races including the Afghan #1. It is loved for its well-balanced mixture of indica and sativa effects along with its strong potency and an almost immediately relaxing, euphoric high which helped it earn the title of 3rd place for best indica-dominant hybrid at the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup. This renowned strain is pretty dank and also carries refreshing notes of citrus and pine, making SFV OG Kush both a delectable and hard hitting strain that is well worth a try for any cannabis enthusiast!
Due to its high indica content, SFV OG Kush smokers can expect mostly indica-type effects rather than sativa effects, making it perfect for nights in and stressful days. It is particularly helpful for those seeking medical usage beneficial for medical usage and for treating mood disorders or pain relief, like depression, chronic pain or migraines. The high starts from the head and trickles through the rest of the body, offering warm, fuzzy waves of relaxation and calmness as it numbs pains and aches while also washing your worries away. The high can last for hours so this strain is not typically recommended for daytime usage if you are outdoors or are busy with focus-oriented tasks. Because of its strong relaxation, SFV OG Kush is also great for treating insomnia. Some users also report a case of the munchies when smoking SFV OG Kush, so be sure to have some snacks nearby when using this heavy indica!
SFV OG Kush is an indica-dominant strain with a ratio of a staggering 90% indica to 10% sativa. Its THC content is relatively high, coming in between 19%-22% potency on average but can reach as high as 25%.
