An indica-dominant hybrid (90 percent Indica, 10 percent Sativa) Zombie OG is a cross of Blackberry and OG Kush. THC tests show a range of 18 to 21 percent THC and 0.3 percent CBD. This strain won a prize in the 2015 High Times NorCal Medical Cannabis Cup. While the CBD is low, the mostly Indica effects work well for medical patients and recreational consumers who want to zone out and become zombies – the relaxed kind of course, not the “gonna eat your brain” kind.
The indica cannabis strain Zombie OG derives its name from the intense body high it creates in the consumer, creating a deep sedation, mood, and hunger reminiscent of zombies – though it may be difficult to leave the couch to grab a bite. Its scent and taste are floral-like and piney with fresh soil undertones. Zombie OG’s buds are spade-shaped, dense, and a bright green with a thin layer of trichomes.
The OG strains are very popular in California where a simple formula has brought great results. Since the 1990s, breeders have taken a strain and crossed it with OG Kush, developing the genetics over time and producing reliable and potent strains. These strains are distinguished from others due to their terpene profile, which characteristically includes caryophyllene and myrcene, giving it the familiar floral and diesel aroma.
Zombie OG is dank bud with a multi-dimensional flavor profile. Aromas such as pine, earth, and lavender tease the nose and delight the palate. Buds are on the small side. They are dense and bright green with orange hairs. White trichomes and resin are plentiful.
Recreational users can expect a couch-locking experience as the weed hits the body hard with sedation and sleepiness. You may feel some euphoria in the head while the body says not now, later. One way to use this strain is for introspection – lay on the bank of a river and contemplate your existence and then go home and have the best sleep of your life!
Deep and peaceful sleep is the promise to medical patients as well as a pain-free existence. People with stress, depression, insomnia, and anxiety will all find something to like in Zombie OG. People suffering from wasting diseases or undergoing chemotherapy may find that they are much more likely to visit the fridge or cupboard for some delicious munchies.
Zombie OG is not one of the easiest seeds or plants to find. Search for relatives like Zombie Kush or others in the Zombie or OG family. Grow it indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. This plant yields high in the harvest with dense buds. Novice growers can attempt it. Expect average height plants and flowering in 9 weeks, which is a bit longer than other cannabis strains.
Indoors or outdoors in southern climates, Zombie Kush is a low-maintenance, hardy indica-dominant hybrid. Blooming in 8-9 weeks under 12/12. If you veg her for a short period, Zombie Kush is perfect for the SOG method. Alternatively, veg for 4+ weeks to develop bushier plants for the ScrOG method. Pine and fuel aromas with a rich Kush flavor and a surprisingly citrus-sweet aftertaste make this a dank delicacy.
Zombie OG’s THC levels average in the high 18-21% range. Its high begins as mood elevates, social tendencies increase, and bouts of the giggles begin to bubble up. This slips into a body high that sedates and makes the consumer feel drowsy, so this strain is best consumed at night or in the evenings when important tasks have already been completed. Zombie OG relieves pain and aches throughout the body, helps with insomnia, and has been known to uplift the spirits enough to help with mild depression/stress. It will also induce the munchies, helping some with appetite or stomach problems.
Negative side-effects include paranoia, dizziness, or headache when improperly consumed.
