Indica Dominant Hybrid – 65% Indica / 35% Sativa
THC: 15% – 18%
OG Snow, also known as “Snow White,” is an indica dominant hybrid (65% indica/35% sativa) strain created through a cross of the White Widow X American Indica strains. This bud is often used as a resin due to its tendencies to take on its White Widow mother’s characteristics. The OG Snow high is much sought after because of its potent effects powered by a THC level of 15-18% on average. The OG Snow high starts with a uplifted and euphoric effect that leaves you happy and mentally calm with no mental pain or racing thoughts whatsoever. This is accompanied by a deep feeling of relaxation and calm that wraps around your body like a blanket of snow. These effects coupled with its moderately high THC level make OG Snow perfect for treating conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, nausea, chronic pain, insomnia, and depression. OG Snow has a sweet citrusy flavor with accents of floral earth. The aroma is of super pungent earth with a strong citrus undertone. These buds have long and super dense pepper-shaped bright forest green nugs with sparse orange hairs and a thick frosty coating of tiny amber-hued crystal trichomes.
About Snow Bud
While there is certainly a fair share of incredible growers in the United States, there’s just something about Dutch weed that makes you feel like you have some true, original flower on your hands. With a history of more than 30 years in business, Dutch Passion has developed Snow Bud, a cross between Afghani indica and African sativa. Coming out to be a slightly sativa-dominant strain, it’s great for all experience levels.
So many buds boast massive amounts of THC these days, which makes Snow Bud’s average of 10% a rarity. A good strain is often easy to recognize, and the appearance of these beautiful nugs is a strong selling point, with a light green base that’s covered in thick resin that resembles snow. Both flavors and aromas include spicy cinnamon and sour skunk, a combination that honestly does take some getting used to.
For users who want to take the edge off of their day while still remaining fully functional, Snow Bud is just the ticket. Your high will begin with a cerebral lift that imparts a strong sense of happiness, and in some cases brings individuals to the point of pure euphoria. Creativity and social behavior both level up a notch or two, and as your mind is singing your body will begin to relax. As long as she’s used in moderation, Snow Bud will allow you to stay in a place of bliss without rendering you useless.
In many cases, medical users choose strains that either offer high THC levels, large doses of CBD, or both. Snow Bud, sadly, offers neither of those attributes but can still be highly beneficial to those in need of relief. General instances of stress, pain, or inflammation can be soothed with just a few tokes while those who struggle with stomach issues will find they have an easier time eating regularly. Just think of Snow Bud like the aspirin of cannabis rather than a painkiller that knocks you out.
This strain makes an awesome addition to any novice’s garden as the plants are highly resistant to mold and mildew. Thriving inside or outdoors, Snow Bud grows like an indica and can be ready for harvest in as little as 7 weeks. Bred to survive in higher elevations, the plants will absolutely explode if cultivated outside, reaching at least 7’ in height and producing a large yield.
Great for a first-time smoker or simply for the days when you need to stay completely under the radar, Snow Bud should be a part of everyone’s cannabis collection. While the strain is fairly popular, it only seems to be available on the West Coast and in the Southwest. Hopefully, as word spreads of her amazing capabilities, more and more dispensaries will begin to stock her on their shelves.
