Indica Dominant Hybrid – 75% Indica / 25% Sativa
Alpha OG, also known as “Alpha OG Kush” to some users, is an indica dominant hybrid (75% indica/25% sativa) strain that is an OG Kush phenotype created by breeders at the infamous Alpha Medic growers. This dank bud is a private reserve strain at the Alpha Medic San Diego Dispensary and took 2nd Place in the Los Angeles Cannabis Cup in 2014 for best hybrid strain. It has thick, dense minty green popcorn-shaped nugs that are leafy with dark green and gold undertones. These nugs are covered in long, spindly orange hairs and a fine layer of crystal white trichomes.
Alpha OG has an aroma of pungent floral and a delicate sweet flowery taste. Users describe the Alpha OG high as very sativa-like in its onset, leaving the user with a euphoric cerebral head high that makes them feel happy, uplifted, and focused. This initial high is followed by an indica body high that leaves the user very lazy, relaxed, and incredibly sleepy. Due to its potent mind and body effects, It is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as sleep disorders, including apnea and insomnia, chronic pain due to injury or illness, and nausea.
