Allen Iverson OG

Allen Iverson OG is a potent indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain bred in California’s cannabis industry that boasts THC levels of around 23%.

Named after NBA legend Allen Iverson, the strain packs a punch. That’s because it was designed with users who are a bit more resistant to the effects of other strains in mind, although we cannot say for sure whether this strain (cultivar) delivers in this regard. The strain’s potency doesn’t come at the expense of flavor, though, with sweet, earthy tastes like pine and wood and some sour notes for balance. Allen Iverson OG (sometimes just “Allen Iverson”) has been reported to improve mood, increase appetite, and help induce sleep, making it ideal for anxiety, appetite loss, and insomnia.

growing strains

If you can get seeds, growing Allen Iverson OG is much the same as increasing many other cannabis plants. Typically, they can be grown inside or outside, and you can find specific tips for each environment with just a little research. If you’re just starting, find out about cannabis growing essentials. The predominantly indica genetics make Allen Iverson OG ideal for indoor grow tents, although some phenotypes may display more sativa-like traits that are preferable for a greenhouse grow.


Depending on where the plant grows, this can vary, but the strain typically reaches less than 30 inches (76 cm) when grown indoors and between 60 and 80 inches (152-203 cm) when grown outdoors.

Humidity and Temperature

The ideal humidity depends on the stage of the plant’s life cycle. Seedlings tend to do best at a humidity of around 60%, while plants in the vegetative stage can manage anywhere between 50% and 70%. However, when they start flowering, they need to be kept a little drier at 50% (sometimes lower) relative humidity to prevent rotting and disease.


Cannabis plants usually take about six to 14 weeks to start flowering. In the case of Allen Iverson OG, it usually takes about 10 weeks. You can use the pistils’ color or trichomes to decide when they should be harvested. If you’re unimpressed with the amount your plants produce, some techniques can increase the yield of your harvest.
