The Middle East was, for much of human history, the place where the most potent cannabis was grown. Ancient OG reaches back into those roots with this indica-dominant hybrid (85% indica/15% sativa). This cannabis plant’s buds exude a powerful skunky, mossy scent, though its flavor carries hints of pine and brown sugar. Buds tend to be small but densely packed.
Lab analyses say it tends to produce 15-21% THC.
This strain’s strong indica genetics produces a deep sedative effect that causes feelings of relaxation and eases body tension. It’s highly recommended for patients dealing with debilitating disorders such as HIV or cancer, as it provides relief from chronic pain but also controls the symptoms of depression and anxiety. It’s also a strain that’s better for end-of-the-day smoke sessions rather than morning tokes.
As with many indicas, Ancient OG can cause severe dry mouth.
Indoor plants usually take about 70 days to flower. Because of Ancient OG’s prominent indica phenotype, it grows relatively short and busy. Growers who prefer the Sea of Green technique should find this strain easy to work with.
