Sour OG marijuana strain is a hybrid and a cross between OG Kush, Blueberry and Sour Diesel with a 50:50 sativa/indica ratio that creates an impressive 17% THC level. Its buds are not only large, but are dense as well. Additionally, they are covered in trichomes. What is really amazing about the 818 Headband is that it looks frosty and is covered by gleaming crystals. However, you have to keep in mind it has an average flower time of eight to nine weeks.

Since it has a medium yield, it is grown using simple hydroponics You will feel productive and will be willing to get things done. You will remain in a positive state while feeling wonderful. Considering how quickly the high comes into effect, it lasts intensely for an hour and even more until it starts to wind down.
Appearance, Scent, Flavor: This is a great specimen of Sour OG. And of flower in general. It is well trimmed — just bud, with minimal stem. The buds themselves are light green and sparkly with crystals. It is also well cured, but on the dry side, not sticky like Sour Diesel. Easy to light, with a good, clear, classic Sour OG flavor, it smokes smoothly, reducing to a nice, fluffy white ash, which means it was flushed thoroughly before harvest.
It smells. . . sour. Like I said, it’s a distinct cannabis scent. Just a smell of this flower will make the taste buds on the back of your tongue tingle. There’s a lemon verbena flavor, with more of a floral than a citrus sour. It reminded me of a horse pasture. As with horse pastures, the scent of “sour cannabis” can be an acquired taste. But once you acquire it, you may start to crave it.
Through a clean water pipe, my mouth was coated with the clean flavor of Lyson. I preferred the flavor through a traditional pipe. More complex, more verbena, less Lysol. The nice green flavor lasted through a couple of hits, which is always nice.
The Experience: I love sour strains on dark days. The bright flavor and scent always remind me of sun and warmth. Nice and toasty. This flower produced a euphoric and relaxing high. I remained mostly clear-headed and totally functional, and didn’t detect much of the usual dry mouth and eyes. The high lasted a nice long while and the stoney phase seemed to go on forever. This is a weed for nursing.
Unfortunately, it did make me want to eat everything in the house. I recommend filling your house with vegetables before enjoying this flower.

High in THC, the strain is good for pain and nausea. That said, strains that are really high in THC, over 25% like this, can actually cause nausea, so be careful. For medicating I generally prefer less potent THC strains, but this Sour OG is super fun. I have been looking to capture a more recreational feel since I’ve been using medicinally, and this does the trick. I felt like I was back in college, only with way better weed.
