      Sour OG Strain Information

      Also known as Sour OG Kush or 818 Headband, Sour OG is a 50/50 sativa-indica hybrid with an average THC concentration of 21%–27% and virtually no CBD. After a few tokes, you’ll quickly feel mentally lifted, blissful, energized, creative, and talkative, but those effects will gradually give way to soothing (but not sedating) physical relaxation. Overall, Sour OG will leave you ready and raring to enjoy life, no matter what the universe might throw your way.

      Often called a “one-hit-quit” strain, Sour OG is particularly potent, so it’s best reserved for seasoned smokers with decent tolerance. If you need an herbal antidote for anxiety, stress, depression, chronic pain, low appetite, or nausea, this strain may be the perfect prescription.

      Pizza: Sour OG will leave you totally blissed out, so if you wanna elevate that feeling, nosh on a couple of slices of triangle-shaped happiness in a box. Or make your own if you’re feeling ambitious (you might be after enjoying this strain).

      Pickles: Go for the non-pasteurized kind. Foods with probiotics can help elevate your mood, so why not enjoy some delicious savory-sour pickles alongside your sour, mood-boosting weed?

      Sour beer: If you wanna enhance the pungent notes in your weed, a few sips of sour beer will get the job done. But if you’ve never tried it, beware: sour beer is definitely an acquired taste.

      Whiskey sour: This sweet-tart blend of whiskey, lemon, and simple (or maple) syrup is iconic, quite like Sour OG. The two are an excellent pair.

      Lemon drop: If you wanna balance out Sour OG’s pungent, tart flavor, this sweet, super-smooth cocktail should do the trick.
