Frequently Asked Questions

What strain is Batman OG?

Batman OG weed is an indica-dominant strain of unknown heritage, named after the masked hero of the DC Universe. It is 70% indica and 30% sativa and packs a punch with up to 25% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Another older favorite is the energizing and trippy Oaxacan Highland, which has Mexican origins. It’s 100% sativa and a potential wake-and-bake option for an experienced cannabis user.

The Hindu Kush strain, which is 100% indica-dominant, is another rare form of cannabis, and it functions as a potent sedative.

What does OG strain stand for?

The first strain of cannabis to appear with the letters "OG" was the popular OG Kush, created in the 1990s. Many believe OG stands for "Original Gangster," a term used in gang culture since the 1970s, denoting a senior gang member.

The man who brought the term into cannabis culture is rapper B-Real from the band Cypress Hill. However, another theory about the origins of "OG" is it might mean "Ocean Grown," referencing cannabis bred along the California coastline.
