OG 18 Strain Information
Smoke your cares away with the ultimate strain for relaxation – OG 18. This indica-dominant hybrid weighs in at 70/30 and will certainly allow you to unwind after a long day with ease. It’s won multiple awards, including the High Times’ Cannabis Cup in 2009 and 2010, as well as earning victories at the Spannabis Indoor Hydro Cup and the Europe Champions Cup both in 2010.
DNA Genetics created this powerful strain, also known as Private Reserve, as a phenotype of OG Kush, bringing along with it some typical diesel-like flavors. It ranks fairly moderately when it comes to THC, averaging about 18%, but can create some psychedelic effects if it’s overdone. Buds of OG 18 are sticky and dense with a super pungent smell of diesel and sour earthy notes. While the taste is just as potent, it’s not completely off-putting to more experienced smokers.
OG 18 brings a strong head high pretty instantaneously, allowing any lingering stress or worries to melt away. Don’t expect to be too terribly productive after hitting this strain, as you’re more than likely going to be in an ultra-relaxed state of mind. You’ll feel OG 18 in both your head and body, and while you’ll most likely be pretty sedated, your mind will be happy, clear, and you might come down with the giggles.
As your high starts to fade away, you’ll most likely feel rather hungry, which makes this strain ideal for those with appetite concerns. Others in the medical cannabis community love the stress relieving properties and the overall reduction in pain, inflammation, and help with mental health concerns. Although many find they are clear-headed and euphoric on OG 18, it should be noted that this is still a strong and long-lasting high that will completely calm your body. It’s often used before bed to help with insomnia, although others find they can function fairly normally while high.
OG 18 is cooperative when it comes to growing, doing well in a greenhouse, indoors, or outside. Highly resistant to mold and mildew, it grows best in Mediterranean climates but will pretty much thrive when in the hands of even the most novice of growers. Plants will reach between 3 and 5 feet and put out a pretty decent yield, and its flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks is ideal.
Whether you need to get away from nagging life concerns or you woke up with chronic pain, OG 18 is a jack of all trades. Make sure to use moderation with this strain, and prepare yourself for an uplifting experience that gently and slowly fades away as you come back down to reality.
Purple Wreck Strain Information
About Purple Wreck
Purple Wreck is an indica-dominant hybrid with the power to impress even experienced cannabis consumers. A cross between the very popular sativa Trainwreck and colorful, aromatic Purple Urkle, Purple Wreck was created by prolific breeders DNA Genetics, the producers of Chocolope and LA Confidential. With a strong, relaxing body high and a bold flavor to boot, Purple Wreck is a great choice for end-of-day use. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found samples of the strain to have THC levels from 10% to a whopping 31%.
Purple Wreck sets itself apart with large, well-formed flowers. These buds look like mini Christmas trees, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. Their structure appears to a hybrid of indica and sativa influences — although compact and dense on the interior, the leaves spiral outward at the exterior with a fluffy texture. These leaves themselves are the strain’s real showstopper, wowing consumers with a mottled mix of olive green, lavender, and violet. These purple hues come about when anthocyanin pigments in the strain’s genetics are activated by colder than average weather. Finally, sticky white trichomes cover all surfaces of these large nuggets, makes them appear dewy and icy.
When properly cured, Purple Wreck gives off a sweet, vegetal odor, somewhat like hay. Lurking underneath these top notes are some notes of grape and berry. Grinding up these solid flowers yields a rich, diesel-like scent. When it is burnt, Purple Wreck gives off a smooth and pleasant smoke that tastes like berry on the exhale with some hints of sap. Notably, any discernible grape odors or flavors are incidental to the strain’s purple hues; while its color is determined by pigments, its aroma is dictated by different compounds called terpenes.
Purple Wreck is a creeper that may take anywhere from 5 to 15 to begin unveiling its effects. At first, smokers may feel a throbbing around the eyes and temples. Once adjusted to these effects, though, it’s smooth sailing. Consumers describe a strong feeling of well-being and emotional uplift. Overextended brains are easily distracted from the stresses and preoccupations of the day, suddenly absorbed by more transitory phenomena like bright lights or resonant sounds. Thanks to the Trainwreck in its background, Purple Wreck exerts some sativa mental energy and alertness. This mental stimulation is not especially cerebral, though, and may not be well-suited to complex, work-related tasks. Instead, smokers can enjoy creative liberty, simply able to daydream and bask in this strain’s warm glow. Purple Wreck’s main attraction is its therapeutic body high, which sets in gradually, first sending waves of relaxation through the core and limbs and eventually numbing (and maybe even disorienting) consumers. Any muscular tension may be suddenly relieved, while deep, restorative breathing may come more easily. As the high progresses, this section can become more and more intense. Couchlock and drowsiness are real possibilities under the right circumstances. Because of Purple Wreck’s slow drop in energy levels, it is best reserved for late afternoon to evening use.
Purple Wreck’s versatile properties can also have applications for medical cannabis patients. The strain’s sense of positivity and lightness can provide temporary relief from the symptom of stress, depression, and anxiety. This bud’s slow-moving body melt can also be an effective treatment for chronic, disease-related pain, as well as minor irritations like headaches and nausea. In high enough doses (and sufficiently comfortable conditions), Purple Wreck can even lull insomniacs to sleep. Because it is unlikely to trigger episodes of obsessive, recursive thinking, this strain is a good option for those who are prone to panic or paranoia.
Seeds of Purple Wreck can be purchased through several digital retailers. It can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoors requires a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants tend to grow short and bushy with strong lateral branching; growers should occasionally trim away any broad fan leaves at the top of the plant that can block light and air from reaching any low-growing flowering nodes. Those looking to accentuate this strain’s titular purple potential should expose their crops to cold (but not freezing) temperatures just before the flowering stage. Purple Wreck flowers within a short 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and typically offers a large harvest.
Purple Wreck’s well-balanced relaxation is an excellent way to enjoy some much-needed solo time. The strain can also be fun at parties, though, where its colorful flowers can make a good conversation starter.
