      OG 18 Strain Information

      The OG 18 is pretty moderate in the THC department, clocking in at an average of 16% to 21%. But that doesn’t mean it won’t deliver some superbly soothing, sedating effects. Just a few tokes of this 70/30 indica-sativa bud will leave you with a relaxing, all-encompassing head and body high that’ll quickly ease stress, chronic pain, depression, mood swings, and headaches. If you struggle to fall asleep or just can’t get your appetite up, OG 18 can help with that, too.
