Created by Bank Genetics, 12 Year OG is a Kush hybrid strain of 70% indica and 30% sativa, with a THC content of around 17%. It has become so successful it has been used as a parent strain for other hybrids, including Guelah OG.
Flavonoids are one of the lesser-known compounds in cannabis, and little is known about the flavonoids present in each strain because they are rarely tested. Like terpenes, flavonoids add to each strain’s flavor and fragrance profile.
Studies have shown that the major flavonoids present in all cannabis plants are cannflavins A, B, and C.
12 Year OGs has been reported to have the following effects:
- Head High
The following adverse effects have also been reported:
- Dry Eyes
- Dry Mouth
- Red Eyes
Reports suggest that 12 Year OG’s high comes on gradually, starting as a spacy head high before a soothing wave of relaxation reaches your body. This is soon replaced by a feeling of sedation, making people feel relaxed and ready for bed. Therefore, it may not be the best strain to use in the morning unless you plan a relaxing day.
Cannabis contains anti-inflammatory and analgesic compounds that can help reduce or distract from pain, including THC, CBD, and beta-caryophyllene.
THC can stimulate the release of the sleep neurotransmitter adenosine.
The 12 year OG strain is popular for nighttime use due to its relaxing effects. However, its THC content still tests above average, so users should not take high doses and start slow. Some negative side effects of taking too much of this strain include dry eyes, dizziness, and possible anxiety.
The 12 Year OG strain is moderately difficult to grow, requiring warm conditions to flourish and mature into a small bush ideal for indoor growth. The strain will need feeding and watering only when the soil is completely dry. Once mature, it will provide moderate yields.
The 12 Year OG strain follows a typical indica growing pattern: It will mature into a relatively small plant, making it an ideal choice for indoor cultivation. It is unlikely that the plant will grow over 4 feet in height.
Humidity and Temperature
The 12 Year OG strain requires a warm environment to grow and produce high-quality buds. This hybrid strain prefers temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Like its parent Kush, it prefers a relative humidity of 45%-65% to avoid bud rot. Start with high humidity of around 80% when the seed is germinating. Gradually decrease the humidity and taper off at about 50% RH in the final weeks of growth.
The 12 Year OG strain produces classic Kush-like dense buds with thick OG aromas. The buds are arrow-shaped with beautiful light green nugs with tiny orange hairs and crystal white trichomes, which gives the strain its orange crystalline appearance. The harvesting time will be around the ninth week, although information on the exact harvesting time is still unknown.
