With a name like Blue OG, this strain sets some high expectations. Luckily, it exceeds them, combining the best of indica strains Blueberry and Blue Moonshine with none other than OG Kush to yield a perfectly balanced high. Created by G13 labs — European breeders responsible for innovative strains like Royal Kush — Blue OG also offers an interesting fruity, kushy taste. This strain’s THC content has been measured at between 13% and 19%.
Blue OG stands out with medium to large buds that have a pronounced cylindrical shape. The nugs are dense and compact, as might be expected of an indica-leaning strain, and the tightly-packed leaves are a pale shade of sea green. Fiery orange hairs — which are actually pistils, structures meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants — twist their way through the curly leaves.
Glassy trichomes cover these already-colorful flowers and give the buds a frosty silver appearance.
Named after the methods of mental manipulation employed by the CIA’s Project MKUltra, this indica-dominant strain stands apart due to its powerful cerebral effects. A cross of OG Kush and indica G13, this strain is bred by T.H. Seeds and won 1st place Indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2003 and 2nd place in 2004. Indoor growing is facilitated by the plant’s short stature, and its above average yield delivers particularly sticky, dense, pungent flowers. MK Ultra is renowned for its euphoric effects that are fast-acting and best for when strong medication is desired. It might be best for a day when not getting off the couch would be fine.$13.00
Romulan is a legendary Indica-dominant strain that got its name when people began joking that this strain could “dent your head” and create ridges like the warrior race from Star Trek that shares the strain’s name. Having been featured in Skunk, High Times, and Cannabis Culture, Romulan is well known for its potent narcotic-like stone. Users often find themselves glued to one spot and may be overcome by a sleepy-laziness.
This strain also wraps the user in a euphoric blanket of bliss while also stimulating the appetite. Snacks should be kept close as the “munchies effect” of Romulan is very strong even for experienced users.
