Name: Skywalker OG
Type: Hybrid (Indica dominant)
Genetics: OG Kush x (Blueberry x Mazar)
The majority of OG strains have a somewhat murky past, and the Skywalker OG strain is no different in this regard. Skywalker OG is a hybrid product of the Blueberry and Mazar strains. Most agree that Skywalker OG is probably the most potent of all the OG strains. Quite a feat, and I would have to agree. Consistantly clocking in at 20%+ THC, Skywalker OG is a great example of what happens when top California genetics meets top Amsterdam genetics.
Looks and Smell
The looks are on-point. This particular batch was definately a Blueberry-dominant phenotype, with all the shades of purple, orange, and green. More purple hues than I usually associate with this strain, but I'm not complaining. The sugary trichromes are highly abundant and made every bud look so much better.
The buds for the most part are hard, dense, and round--a very typical indica nug formation. The hairs are a bright rustic orange, evenly spaced, and similar in appearence to many other kush strains. The smell was rather pungent, and I must say very appealing. There were distinctive Bubba Kush notes like coffee and dark chocolate along with a sweet yet skunky fuel smell behind it. When ground, it unleashed a very sharp, fresh and uncanny anise/black licorice smell that also carried notes of lemon/lime kush.
Fear not, Skywalker OG allows you to handle a massive workload, or you can simply pass right out without any problem. In other words, it can serve as a full body medicine, yet unlike other kushes it will not leave you couch-locked.
On the inhale, Skywalker OG tends to coat your mouth (as is often the case with OG strains) with smooth, flavorful smoke. On the exhale it enhances the obvious skunky, lemony fuel taste with a hint of Chemdawg flavor that will linger for the indefinite future. The effects are immediate and last up to two hours.
I've never had a bad bowl or batch of Skywalker OG, regardless of what dispensary I've obtained it from. It is just an overall solid strain that consistently performs time after time.
This indica dominant strain is known to be useful in the treatment of chronic pain, severe headaches, appetite stimulation, and insomnia issues. I always crack a grin when I see Skywalker OG on the menu. It has become a favorite strain of mine and is definitely on my top 5 list. Others must feel the same because these days you need not go to a galaxy far, far away to find it... Your local dispensary probably has it.
