Gucci OG is an indica-leaning hybrid whose name is evidence of the increasing effects of conspicuous consumption on the burgeoning legal cannabis industry. Unlike its exclusive Italian fashion namesake, though, Gucci OG can be enjoyed by all. This well-balanced hybrid is a distinct phenotype of staple strain OG Kush and carries on all of its mother plant’s potency and pungency. With THC levels that have been measured at between 14% and a whopping 30%, Gucci OG is an appealing choice for cannabis newcomers and veterans alike.Gucci OG’s flowers immediately set this strain apart. The buds tend to be large and dense, clinging together in a solid, indica-typical structure. Buds also have distinctive shapes, ranging from slightly tapered and cone-like to almost entirely cylindrical. Meanwhile, the leaves are about as colorful as cannabis gets in the absence of blue and purple hues; they are a patchwork of mossy green leaves and bright orange pistils. Glittering, translucent white trichomes stand out against the leaves, making Gucci OG incredibly sticky and sure to leave behind a resinous dust when handled.When properly cured, Gucci OG has all the kushy pungency of its parent plant. Sour citrus is the primary smell here, striking the back of the palate and making eyes tear up even before the bud is burnt. These bright top notes are grounded out by the earthy musk of wet soil and pine. These earthy aromas emerge even more when Gucci OG is ground up or broken open — some even compare the gamey, musky scent to that of leather. Despite its dank flavors, though, Gucci OG burns with a smooth and light-tasting smoke. Its sharp taste and odor can linger for a while afterwards; those looking to keep their consumption discreet may want to take some precautions.Gucci OG begins to take effect fairly quickly and starts with an increase in free-associative thinking. Abstract concepts or external stimuli may take on some absorbing new dimensions. Rather than leading to an uncontrollable feeling of mind race, though, Gucci OG keeps users in control of both thoughts and speech, Under these conditions, smokers may find themselves more social and conversational than usual. Gucci OG can also facilitate everything from creative thinking to methodical, analytical problem solving. A body high emerges just as users begin to peak, resulting in a potent meld of physical and mental effects. Ripples of bodily relaxation may relieve tension without necessarily leading to couch-lock. This strain’s versatile high can be pointed in whichever direction the user prefers — it’s great for social and athletic activities like making an excursion with friends, exercising, or simply spending some introspective time alone. Gucci OG can be enjoyed at any time of day, although it may keep users briefly wired if they toke before bed. A little bit of this bud also goes quite a long way, even for smokers with a high THC tolerance.Gucci OG may also have wide-ranging users for medical cannabis patients. Its long-lasting and clearheaded mental state can benefit those with moderate cases of anxiety, depression, or even PTSD, helping them to live more presently and “in the moment.” It can also help patients with attention deficit disorders to maintain concentration. Gucci OG’s subtle physical relaxation may provide relief from deep-seated aches and pains, while its anti-inflammatory properties can soothe irritations like headaches or indigestion. Because some users may find its cerebral intensity to be disorienting, those who are prone to panic should consume this strain with caution and moderation.No commercial producers have made seeds of Gucci OG available for sale online. As such, prospective growers must obtain clippings from healthy, mature plants in order to foster “clones.” Although there is limited information available on best cultivation practices for this strain, like many hybrids, it can be grown indoors or outdoors in semi-humid climates with consistent daytime sunlight. Gucci OG flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors.Although its name may conjure images of bling and luxury, Gucci OG is a mellow and down to earth strain that’s just as enjoyable when you’re at home in sweatpants as it is when you’re decked out for a night on the town.
