      Strain Information

      Tahoe OG is a phenotype of the original OG Kush strain. Created by California-based breeder Ganga Guru, the strain was first bred in Lake Tahoe, California, sometime between the late 1980s and early 1990s — no one really knows the exact year. While Tahoe OG typically leans indica, it may also lean sativa depending on the grower. Overall, it’s an excellent balance between the two cannabis types.

      For those with trouble sleeping, Tahoe OG is widely referred to as insomnia’s worst nightmare. Its full-body high produces peaceful relaxation and feelings of mental clarity that eradicate stress and anxiety. On the flip side, when used in small doses, the strain can also induce feelings of creativity and motivation thanks to its sativa genetics.

      THC levels typically hover around 18% to 20%. CBN comes in at around 1%, which isn’t surprising given the strain’s insomnia-busting reputation. CBD content comes in at less than 1%.
