The Tahoe OG strain — also known as the Tahoe OG Kush strain — embodies the typical effects of an indica plant while having a slight sativa-like kick. Growers say that Tahoe OG is a phenotype of classic OG Kush. The best aspect of this strain (cultivar) is that it matures at around 10 weeks, meaning it grows fast enough to make it ideal for anyone who wants to harvest their crop quickly. It is said to have more sedating effects, making it ideal for managing stress, insomnia, and chronic pain.
Tahoe OG was created in the 1980s near Lake Tahoe, California. The plant is typically indica-dominant; however, modern cross-breeding has produced some slight variations, and some of these plants may contain more sativa genetics. Generally, most Tahoe OG plants are 90% Cannabis indica and 10% Cannabis sativa. The THC content is no higher than 21%, and very little CBD is found in this strain.
Some plants have bright orange pistils and lime-green buds. Tahoe OG has been described as having an earthy, citrus, and pine taste and aroma. Many users prefer this strain because it induces deep sleep and relaxation.
