Platinum OG is a super-potent descendant of OG Kush, Master Kush, and an unknown parent. THC levels easily top 20% and have reportedly reached 24% in some tests. This indica-dominant hybrid has a sativa/indica ratio of 25/75, and that is reflected in the mostly physical high. The powerful effects include a calming body buzz with couch-lock, euphoria, happiness, and intense sleepiness. This makes Platinum OG a good medication for insomnia, as well as anxiety, low mood, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, mood swings, and muscle spasms. CBD levels are very low, less than 1%, which isn’t surprising, considering the high THC content. In other words, this strain shouldn’t be used as sole treatment for seizures or other disorders that require CBD. Platinum OG produces a smell of diesel, spice, and coffee; the flavor is similar, with additional hints of herb. The bud is lime green and covered in fuzzy trichome hairs. Dry mouth is by far the most commonly cited side effect with this strain, though dry eyes, dizziness, and paranoia are also reported. It sells best on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Arizona.
It is just as precious as the metal it’s named after. With a THC content regularly topping 20%, this indica-dominant hybrid asserts itself as one of the “heaviest” strains around. It is purported to stem from three strains: Master Kush, OG Kush, and a third unknown parent. Flowers are lime green and plump, with prominent orange hairs and a platinum coating thanks to the abundance of THC crystals. A brief, heady onset settles into a powerful physical sedation suitable for nighttime use and pain, stress, or anxiety relief, making this precious strain a robust healer.
