El Chapo OG Marijuana Strain Review


Strain Overview

The Scoop: Stop the Presses! El Chapo has finally been apprehended! No, not the mysterious and wanted leader of Mexico’s most powerful drug cartel. But rather, El Chapo OG, a compelling strain cultivated by CA’s Boss Status Genetics. Crossed with the potent and powerful Faceoff OG x SFV OG, then crossed again with an OG Kush Pheno (straight out of the 1990s), El Chapo OG is an undisputed heavyweight within the world of OGs. 

The Result: Incredibly elusive – just ask the FBI, DEA, and Mexican authorities – El Chapo OG ends even the most stressful day on a high note. Unlike Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, this strain is known for producing a peaceful and euphoric mindset, for those who know where to look.

The Verdict: With earthy hints of terra firma and pine, this intriguing strain helps individuals imprisoned by pain escape their physical incarceration. No tunneling required, this potent California strain delivers freedom from discomfort after the first rip off your daily driver.

Strain Profile

The Science: Great as a 4:20 smoke, El Chapo OG quiets the hyperactive mind and unleashes pent-up productivity. A genetic offspring of some of the most powerful OG’s in the 420 world, El Chapo is a serious force to be reckoned with. Thoroughly relaxing and therapeutic, its collective cannabinoids and terpene profile offer the overstimulated mind a brief respite from the hectic 9-to-5 mindset.

Appearance: Dense and average in size, the El Chapo flower is shielded with THC-laced trichomes. Standing guard over its potent compounds, an Army of peach colored pistils salutes those about to smoke. Short, squat and intoxicating, El Chapo’s OG phenotypes are visually conspicuous.

Consistency: Boss Genetics’ El Chapo OG produces some seriously intimidating flower. Perfectly cultivated and cured, its persuasive nuggets are compact and dense. Easily shredded with a decent grinder or scissors, breaking apart El Chapo’s resinous buds by hand should be outlawed.

Scent: Saturated in a soil and an earthlike bouquet, El Chapo’s pungent aroma is a dead giveaway in tight quarters. Extraordinarily hard to conceal regardless of the airtight container, its odor will NOT escape the discerning nose.

Taste: F*king incredible! Much like the fugitive, this strain is named after, El Chapo OG’s essence is truly killer. Mixing a psychoactive flavor profile of pine tree sap, and earthbound elements – consumers will find this taste overtly captivating.

Effect: Pardoning anxiety and hopelessness, this strain releases individuals from painful joint inflammation and daily bouts of chronic pain. Calming yet thought provoking, El Chapo OG is a great way to escape the trials and tribulations of daily life.

Strain Background: Cultivated by California’s Boss Genetics, the skilled growers were initially tracking down some highly valued old school OG’s from the mid-90s. First crossing the potent Faceoff OG x SFV OG, the guys at Boss took their quest to create the ultimate OG one step further by tossing some ’96 OG Kush genetics into the mix.

Medical UsesSwelling, aching muscles and joints, melancholy, tension.

About Author

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
