Tahoe OG offers a powerful mix of heady india and body-oriented sativa, with a 10:90 sativa/indica ratio. The THC levels, which can top 20%, make this a particularly potent choice for those seeking stress reduction and mood boost. The high is predominantly relaxed, both in body and mind, but the sativa component adds a strong euphoria and feelings of happiness. This strain is often used to treat anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia, while it’s also helpful in treating depression, ADHD, PTSD, migraines, and PMS. Negative effects most commonly include dry mouth and dry eyes, with a limited possibility of dizziness.
An inbred descendant of the OG Kush strain, Tahoe OG has an earthy, lemony taste, with a pungent plant smell. This strain is most popular on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Michigan. It’s usually found in California, where it was initially bred near Lake Tahoe. It isn’t the easiest strain to find, but the potency alone is worth the effort. Tahoe OG can grow well indoors or out, and its vegetative cycle is of moderate length, about 70 days.
OG Kush appeared when breeder Matt “Bubba” Burger brought his Florida-grown strain to new. Indoor settings engineered by California’s JoshD of JoshD Farms. The OG stood for “original.” And indicated the strain was part of the ’92 cut grown by Burger and his team.
From there, Ganja Guru moved a step further with Tahoe OG, selecting phenotypes based on THC levels and trichome density.
Its desirability earned the cultivar 3rd place for Best Indica at the 2011 Cannabis Cup.
