SFV OG Kush Strain Review
Boasting of a grand-slamming THC volume of up to 25%, there’s no doubt that SFV OG Kush is a black belt champion of indica-dominant strains. Expect the high to strike with a profound sense of euphoria followed by a sedative kick as its finishing blow.
A hallmark of one of the strongest OG strains in the market, it draws its clout from the legendary SFV OG and Afghani. On the onset, SFV OG produces a trippy buzz that quickly clouds up the mind, while Afghani trails after with a body-transfixing relaxation.
With two powerhouses as parents, it comes as no surprise their offspring packs the winning punch as the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup winner.
In addition, this strain is the perfect bedtime companion as it plunges the mind into a dreamy high. Soon enough, users may not even notice that they’ve drifted off to the gates of dreamland itself.

Odor and Flavors
Perhaps one of the more fragrant strains in the Kush lineage, this strain captures spring’s lighter and brighter mood as it emits a natural sugariness from honey and rose notes. Some subtle combo of cactus flower and musk add a deeper layer to the sweetly complex aroma, sprinkled with crushed peppers to give it a spicy kick upon exhaling.
Considered as the more down-to-earth twin of SFV OG, this offshoot can bury users in a quicksand-like relaxation. While its sister-strain soar the mind above the clouds, this one digs deep underground with a fat chance of rendering beginners immobile to the couch. As such, veterans and novice smokers alike should tread lightly.
Before its hardwearing effects completely encase users though, a cerebral onset muddles the mind in a euphoric haze. This is enough to put users in a giggly mood and paint a permanent smile on their faces, making one forget any leftover stress from work. For those looking to unwind in a snap, just one whiff can do just the trick.
This small leeway allows users some time to prepare for the onslaught of sleep ahead. Once it hits, expect to a calming sensation to spread all throughout the limbs, each wink bring users closer to a deep, restorative sleep.
Smokers may be expecting devastating results from such a potent strain, but SFV OG Kush surprisingly produces little to no adversities. Perhaps the worst case scenario would be a mild case of dizziness, but this easily swirls into a pleasurable spin if one keeps calm till it passes.
Slight paranoia and anxiety may occur to those with an extreme intolerance for THC, and may feel uncomfortable with such strong effects. But it doesn’t cause too much alarm as it quickly dissipates as well.
Two of the most minor effects, such as cottonmouth and dry eyes are also present but effortlessly overlooked. To avoid all these altogether, simply keep hydrated and start with a low dosage first.
Medical Use and Benefits
SFV OG Kush may not be popular in its CBD department, but its whopping THC of up to 25% charms its way to the hearts of medical patients. For those seeking instant mind to body liberation, this is the strain to go for undoing the damage of life’s stressful routine.
For most, days are spent in a humdrum cycle of difficulties topping one after another. One whiff of this stops the wrecking ball from rolling and provides brief psychological reprieve. As such, those with mild depression or anxiety will have more breathing room for positivity to spread its influence.
Of course, the strain’s most captivating feature is its analgesic and sedative qualities. Such effects soothe painful conditions like muscle spasms and inflammation, effectively relaxing the body no matter how stubborn the muscular tensions are.
As the high tapers off, even the toughest insomniac won’t stand a chance against the weight of its sedation.
Growing SFV OG Kush
SFV OG Kush is quite a tricky strain to grow as it requires ample nutrition. Nonetheless, it is not overly difficult as recommended ratios are not too far off from typical Indica strains. One of the things to watch out for is the pH range as it is also finicky in this regard.
This plant can thrive in either an indoor or outdoor setup using either a soil medium or the SCROG method. Indoors may take about 7 to 9 weeks of flowering time with a satisfactory yield of 450 grams to 570 grams per square meter.
Meanwhile, outdoors may be ready by late September to the middle of October with a yield of 570 grams per plant.
