Odor and Flavors
Like being buried underground, it permeates a heavy aroma of deep earthiness with pungency reminiscent of a true Kush. Notes of wood add complexity to the aroma, finishing it off with a relaxing incense of pine. It tastes just as grounded as it smells, but don’t be fooled – its high can be off the charts.
A hard-hitting strain, True OG can sink the body and mind in a quicksand high. As such, inexperienced smokers will find it almost impossible to escape, but when toked cautiously; it would feel more like a relaxing mud bath.

Due to that, it is better used after work as a way to unwind from stress, and users are free to act on wherever the high may go – either straight to bed or cozied up in the couch for some light reading.
True OG can be quite a heavy-handed strain, although effects are not as cumbersome. Two of the most common occurrences would be cottonmouth and dry eyes, which is irritating at most. A glass or two of refreshments would do the trick.
