Saturn OG is an indica dominant hybrid strain made from crossing OG Kush with another strain. Although this strain is known often as strictly indica, the balanced effects of Saturn OG make it more hybrid-like with its calm cerebral effects. Saturn OG is another one of the planetary strains that’s risen to popularity much like Earth OG, Mars OG, and Jupiter OG.
The origins of Saturn OG are shrouded in mystery due to being largely undocumented. This strain is derived from the classic OG Kush and boasts an average THC level of 17-26%. Aside from this, not much is known about the Saturn OG strain.
APPEARANCE & AROMA
Saturn OG carries an earthy, citrus scent mixed with diesel that is characteristic of parent strain OG Kush. Saturn OG buds have lumpy and dense popcorn-shaped bright neon green nugs with dark red hairs and a completely frosty coating of oversized chunky amber hued crystal trichomes. The buds are small to medium in size when trimmed and cling together in tight, popcorn-like clusters. They have the dense and compact internal structure characteristic of indica varieties, with small, stubby leaves that curl tightly inward. These leaves themselves are a dark shade of forest green and are punctuated by curly orange pistils.
EFFECTS & USES
The effects of the Saturn OG strain leave consumers feeling happy, social, sleepy, relaxed, euphoric, and uplifted. Some of the medical uses for this strain includes depression, stress, nausea, lack of appetite, insomnia, hypertension, muscle spasms, tremors, and pain. Saturn OG produces a very relaxing, mellow high that soothes your muscles and any tension you’re holding on to in your body. The taste is a mix of earthy and a slight hint of refreshing mint. The smoke isn’t very harsh and doesn’t make you cough as much as potent indicas usually do. Keep some water with you when indulging in this very fluffy, sticky strain with a very frosty outer coat of trichomes. One of the main reported cons with this strain is the highly unavoidable cotton mouth that comes with smoking any strain. Saturn OG can be anxiety-inducing in its early stages, making it not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
Saturn OG seeds aren’t available for purchase online so those looking to grow their own plant should look into obtaining clipping from a trusted source. This strain can thrive both indoors and outdoors in a hot and humid climate. Although specific best practices for growing this hybrid are not widely available, its indica-type buds imply that plants grow short and squat and that they have a relatively short flowering time of between 8 and 9 weeks. Indoor gardeners trying to maintain discretion should keep in mind that Saturn OG can be a very stinky grow; apparatus like exhaust fans or carbon air filters may help keep its pungency under control.
This strain provides users with equilibrium between mental and physical effects as well as a memorably funky flavor. It’s a must try for any indica lovers.
