Also known as 818 Headband, Sour OG is a well-balanced 50/50 hybrid cannabis strain that produces large, dense, trichome covered buds when harvest-ready. Some have described its smell and taste as citrusy and earthy, while others find it has a pungent earthy diesel smell.
Its THC level averages at 17% and doesn’t deviate too much higher or lower from this percentage. The high is often described as a perfect medium: not overly powerful or too light on both the body and mind. It will boost one’s spirits as well as relax the muscles, relieving tension. Some have reported a slight boost in energy as well, making this strain useful for consumption throughout the entirety of the day. However, its high often only lasts about an hour.
Expect dry mouth and eyes when using this strain. Some state they’ve experienced mild phases of dizziness when too much has been consumed. Others note that this might not be good for novice consumers as it may leave them feeling too “stoney.”
