aka Superman Kush Strain
Superman OG is a cross between Tahoe OG and Bubba Kush. A product of magnificent breeding, this strain is indeed super-resistant to disease and mold, due to its substantial indica lineage. Users will experience a feeling of intense bodily relaxation, while its taste is extremely spicy.
The high THC potency of 19% – 23% on average makes it an excellent option for advancers and intermediate smokers. Those with low experience would find it too overwhelming. Superman OG cannabis is strongly recommended for night time use because of its sedative effects.
It appears that there are Superman OG strains out in the market that are crosses of strains other than the recognized originals. In some ways, this is due to the lack of information regarding it. For instance, we do not even know who the original breeder was. Having said that, we do know that it is a two-way cross between Tahoe OG and Bubba Kush.
It should be noted too, that one source of confusion on the genetics of Superman OG could be traced back to one of its parents. Tahoe OG, depending on the breeder, could either be Indica or Sativa dominant. As such, it is possible for several growers to breed Superman OG using the same parent strains, but while one could be Indica dominant, the other could be Sativa dominant. Because of that, each version of Superman OG from different breeders are likely to have differences.
Since the beginning, Superman in its various iterations always came from Krypton. But for the Superman OG strain, we have to wonder.
