THCO SKYWALKER OG DISPOSABLE (HYBRID)
Sometimes shock value can be a big asset when naming and marketing strains.
Originally called “Cush”, this strain was re-dubbed “SKYWALKER OG” by none other than cannabis connoisseur Snoop Dogg after he sampled its intense Sativa effects.
Although some still prefer the name Cush to sidestep any unwanted cannabis stigma, the love for this fruity and earthy strain is unanimous.
SKYWALKER OG origins are disputed — originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s, it is descended from the ever-popular Skunk #1, but it may also have some Afghani landrace India in its background.
Despite the edginess of its name, SKYWALKER OG is more likely to make users energized and inspired than strung out and manic.
Providing the best of what Sativa varieties have to offer, it’s a great strain for enhancing your appreciation of your surroundings or simply as a way to help you get up and go.
It’s also unique in its potency — even for more experienced cannabis fans, a little bit of this controlled substance can go a long way.
SKYWALKER OG has a classically Indica bud structure, with dense buds that are smaller and clustered than chunky.
The leaves are pale green to yellow, although the pigments in some phenotypes can cause some leaves to be streaked with purple when plants are exposed to cold during the growing process.
Rust-colored pistils stand out against the colorful flowers. The buds are also coated in milky-white trichomes, giving them a sticky texture and a glistening appearance.
This visual appeal is matched by a dynamic scent.
Cured properly, the flowers have a bright citrus scent with mellow undertones of earthiness and wood.
The smoke is very smooth and leaves a tang at the top of the palate and the back of the tongue, reminiscent of mango. On the exhale, the smoke tastes vaguely hashy and spicy, perhaps evidence of Afghani in its lineage.
