Platinum OG is an indica cannabis strain that derives its name from the shimmery silver coating of trichome crystals it bares when harvest-ready. Underneath this layer one can find lime green buds and orange hairs.
The parent strains are a combination of the indica Master Kush and hybrid OG Kush.
The THC content averages at 17% and reaches heights of 24%. The high will first affect the consumer’s mind, fogging it until it settles after several minutes into a sedating body buzz that’s best for night time use. The mind falls into a restful ease, eliminating negative thoughts and allowing drowsiness to take hold. Muscles will unwind and the consumer will feel the need to fall into a deep sleep which will come easily.
Some have described this strain as a one-hitter-quitter, so novice consumers take heed. Negative side-effects include dizziness and phases of paranoia if consuming too much in one sitting.
Growers will enjoy cultivating Platinum OG either indoors or out, taking about nine weeks to harvest. However, this strain doesn’t grow well when there are drastic temperature changes.
