The Platinum OG Strain (as heavy as the metal it’s named after), is an Indica-dominant hybrid that delivers powerful pain relief and couch-lock-level relaxation. This super-potent strain packs an initial euphoric punch that’s excellent for mood elevation and stress relief.
As euphoria subsides, Platinum OG produces a soothing body buzz that comes on quickly and gives way to intense sleepiness and sedation.
Medical users gravitate toward the strain for its sleep-promoting, anxiety-reducing, and pain-relieving effects. For the average smoker, Platinum OG is a great nighttime strain for unwinding at the end of a stressful day.

Platinum OG Strain Information
Named for the silvery coating that blankets its lime green buds, the Platinum OG strain was originally propagated by award-winning seed bank, Apothecary Genetics. A cross between OG Kush, Master Kush, and another unknown parent strain (assumed to be of the purps variety), Platinum OG produces a mostly physical high.
Its euphoric, happiness-inducing, and relaxing effects are excellent for calming mood swings, stress, anxiety, and hyperactivity. Its calming body high is also great for relieving chronic pain, inflammation, headaches, muscle spasms, and insomnia.
On the come-up, Platinum OG delivers a happy, creative, exuberant effect thanks to its 25% sativa content. Following the peak, this 75% indica strain produces a soothing, full-body high that gives way to intense relaxation.
An excellent nighttime choice, Platinum OG is widely known for gently carrying users into a deep, rejuvenating sleep. The strain has a CBD content of less than 1% and a THC content of between 17% and 24%.
