Fire OG Marijuana Review
Genetics & Background
Fire OG is the most potent OG strain on the market. Though there is some uncertainty surrounding the background of this strain, it is believed to have been first bred during the 1990s in the San Fernando Valley of California. Its parent strains are San Fernando Valley OG Kush F3 and OG Kush. The strain certainly embodies its California roots, with its fiery look and laid back, sedative effects, much like a California beach would have on a person. It has a high THC content of 20% to 25% and a CBD content of 0.36%. An indica dominant strain, it has a indica value of 70% and a sativa value of 30%. Its overall effects are as expected, which are in line with typical indica strains; i.e. they are more sedative than energizing. While this is so, the existence of its sativa component, will bring out some amount of energizing stimulation to the user.
Appearance & taste
Fire OG kush has an aroma that is similar to the cannabis strain Lemon Pledge. The lemon aroma is accompanied by an earthy, woody smell. A piney or spicey undertone is sometimes detected as well. The buds of this cannabis plant are covered in glistening trichomes and red/orange hairs, which makes the plant appear to be-as it is called- on fire. Its high resin content is perfect for making extracts.

The energizing effects of the strain will bring on a feeling of euphoria. The high from Fire OG can last as long as 3 hours, making it a favourite among recreational marijuana smokers. On the flip side of these great effects, however, are the fatigue/coach lock and incredible hunger that will ensue after a smoking or vaping session.
