Larry OG

Larry OG, also known as Lemon Larry and Grandpa Larry, is a balanced indica-sativa hybrid with a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content between 22% and 24.5% and a cannabidiol (CBD) content between 0.57% and 0.72%. Its moderately high THC content and relaxing yet uplifting effects suggest that Larry OG may be useful for managing chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and, in moderate doses, depression.

The strain is a member of the famous ocean-grown lineage and was developed by crossing the hybrid OG Kush with an indica SFV OG Kush from the San Fernando Valley. Larry OG has won several awards, including the Best Hybrid award in 2012 and the Best Medicinal Strain award in the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup.
