Superman OG Strain Review
It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no, it’s Superman OG. Although, its name may not be so appropriate. Rather than making users invincible, its heavy-hitting high can sometimes anchor one to the couch while feeling completely undone. And, in this aspect, one may think it is actually Kryptonite.
Its origin story is quite interesting. Superman OG inherited much of its power from the great, old-school classic Bubba Kush, which is highly praised for its heavily tranquilizing effects. Meanwhile, Tahoe OG Kush not only amplifies the heavy-bodied sensation, but also adds a euphoric, sativa-like kick.
As such, those looking to get unwind for the rest of the evening will find this strain to be the perfect fit. However, one should note its latter parent may sometimes be dominantly Sativa, thus, influencing this strain to be more stimulating than soporific in some areas.
Whether it takes the mind soaring above cerebral clouds or buries the body in pure relaxation, Superman OG is one roll away from saving the day.

Odor and Flavors
Despite its moniker being out-of-this-world, its aroma is deeply grounded on earth as it is packed with the freshness of a lush forest. Pungent at its core, its sharpness is softened by the subtle sweetness one may get from fallen pinecones. Its flavors are just as woody, giving it a rather smoky finish that many connoisseurs find delectable.

Growing Superman OG
Like the hero, Superman OG is a sturdy plant. It is resilient in the face of adversities like strong winds, cold temperatures, and will not break off easily at the weight of its own heavy buds. Still, this does not guarantee an easy grow.
The plant itself is quite sensitive to humidity. Due to its compact structure, it easily harbors moisture in between crevices which develop into mold or mildew when the plant is not well-aerated. As such, ventilation is an important component in helping the plant flourish.
The plant rarely requires early topping due to its short height. However, some phenotypes may stretch and will require hastening the vegetative period to keep it manageable. Regardless, it has lateral branches that encourage more budding sites.
Indoors, aspiring growers may use a hydroponics setup and complement it with the Sea of Green (SOG) method. Within 7 to 9 weeks, it will yield of 300 to 400 grams of buds per square meter.
Because of its sensitivity to moisture, Superman OG is best grown in cooler, drier climates. In such environments, it blossoms early, usually around October with each plant producing at least 400 grams of buds.
