The Science: Individual batches of lab-tested Skywalker OG will contain varying percentages of cannabinoids and terpenes. This variation is primarily based on the individual grower’s skill set, chosen nutrients (organic versus nonorganic) and how the cultivator dries their product. That said, the included online test results indicate the analyzed flower had a total THC content of 22.69% with .10% CBD. Skywalker OG’s terpenes, which ultimately determine the flower’s flavor, were highest in Humulene (1.77%), alpha-Pinene (.88%), and Myrcene (.69%).
Appearance: Skywalker OG looks like a hero to me. While the strain’s overall appearance can vary from cultivator to cultivator, the flower, when grown and cured with care, simply glistens with trichomes. Trapped beneath the psychoactive compounds, her flaming orange pistils protrude between the olive green calyxes. Inspired by science fiction, designed by nature, and hybridized by man, Skywalker OG stands out on any dispensary shelf.
Consistency: Keep your lightsaber handy when shredding Skywalker OG for consumption. This strain is as dense as an asteroid and as sticky as a black hole.
Scent: Seemingly potent enough to fuel the millennium falcon by smell alone, the Skywalker OG aroma has a jet fueled nose that includes an intriguing mix of spicy herbal scents. When lit, The Force of her intriguing aroma is unleashed on an unsuspecting world.
Taste: Common among the OG strains, Skywalker OG delivers a heady and full body smoke. Providing an ominous warning that this a serious strain, the flavor starts off with a distinct taste of lemon-infused fuel on the initial inhale. When exhaling, Skywalker’s flavor remains on the skunky side of the flavor spectrum. A tasty OG, the pine flavor can linger on the tongue for hours.
Effect: Providing a spaced-out mindset of the highest order, Skywalker OG allows the consumer to relax effortlessly. Like the Rebel Alliance striking a blow against the Empire, Skywalker OG is on a 420-mission to dispatch those annoying little aches and pains for all heady Jedi warriors.
Strain Background: According to online sources, Skywalker OG is a cross of two well-respected strains. High on everyone’s list this time of year, Skywalker was initially cultivated by crossbreeding Blueberry (1st place 2000 HTCC, 3rd place 2001 HTCC) with Mazar. Once the Skywalker strain took root, it was then crossed with the ever-popular OG Kush – thereby giving birth to today’s Skywalker OG.
Medical Uses: Skywalker OG works wonders for individuals plagued with daily anxiety, depression, inflammation or insomnia. Better than a cocktail at happy hour for relaxing apprehension and social anxiety, this strain should have a prominent position next to the Zoloft in the average American’s medicine cabinet.
