OG #18 is an indica dominant hybrid (70/30), created by DNA Genetics, the same breeders who created L.A Confidential, one of our favourite strains. OG #18 is a phenotype of OG Kush, but with a very different profile than OG Kush, bringing with it diesel scents and flavours. OG #18 won successive cannabis cups in both 2009 and 2010.
This bud came in three nugs, one larger than the other two. Structure of the bud was of good quality, and very dense. Trichomes were truly packed onto the bud, as can be seen in the images, and a mixture of light and dark pistils wrapped around the varying green hues of the calyxes.
Aroma & Taste
The smell of OG #18 was right up my alley, presenting with a strong diesel scent mixed with a very sweet element. The diesel elements are lesser than that of strains like Chemdawg and Sour Diesel, yet still feature heavily. As for taste, the same kind of flavours are found, with a sweet initial taste with that of diesel lingering after exhale.
Despite the indica dominance, OG#18 comes on quickly with a very identifiable head high, with a pressure right behind the eyes. This then transforms into a combination of head and body high. The high retains a lot of the cerebral elements, and we found ourselves feeling uplifted and giggly, while also feeling the relaxation of the body high. There was a dizzy feeling when I closed my eyes, something I enjoy as it feels quite psychedelic, however it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. This effect was likely due to a large dosage though, and smaller doses would keep one’s high feeling comfortable.
