Darth Vader OG
Darth Vader OG, also known as Vader OG or Vader Kush, is a rare marijuana hybrid known for creating extremely strong and long-lasting indica-leaning effects that leave the user completely sedated and fully relaxed. The hybrid is easily identifiable by the dense and deep purple colored buds that give it its amazing visual appeal.
The 90% indica and 10% sativa hybrid has an incredible THC level that ranges from 17% to 20%, allowing it to create an unforgettable body high. The ability to produce heavy indica effects makes Darth Vader OG the right strain for people who struggle with insomnia, chronic stress, and loss of appetite.
We should warn you that Vader OG may induce a very strong couch-lock effect that may turn into a deep sleep. For this reason, we highly recommend using this strain only at the end of the day or when you don’t have important tasks to accomplish.
There’s a lot of speculation about the origin and genetic makeup of Darth Vader OG. One theory claims that the strain is a crossbreed of Larry OG and the infamous San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG. Another theory claims that the hybrid was made by crossing Skywalker OG and the Purple Kush.
There is also this theory where the strain is believed to be a crossbreed of Skywalker OG and the sweet-smelling OG Kush.
While all these versions can be a little confusing, especially for growers and users looking for specific effects, the most important thing to note about the hybrid is that it is an indica dominant with a lot of recreational and medicinal benefits.
Darth Vader OG is a fast-hitting hybrid that will completely knock you out and make you fall deeply asleep just a few minutes after smoking it.
At the onset, you’ll be all giggly and chatty, and your mood will change to one of cheerfulness and pure ecstasy. A few minutes later, the strain will launch its full-body assault with its heavy indica effects making you extremely lazy and completely couch-locked.
Vader OG’s numbing effects make you feel beautifully relaxed and contented. Also, you may feel a little exhausted, especially when the effects start to fade away.
Appearance, Aroma, Flavor
Darth Vader OG smells good. You know that smell when you walk into a beautiful shrubbery early in the morning? That’s how this strain smells like. While it isn’t the best smelling hybrid, its smell is good enough for most marijuana enthusiasts.
When it comes to flavor, Vader OG tastes a lot better than it smells. Its flavors range from sweet, fruity to berry with dank, earthy, and spicy tones on the exhale.
Since Darth Vader OG is a rare cannabis hybrid, not very much is known about its cultivation. However, based on its lineage, one could say that it can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors.
Our assumption is that Darth Vader OG grows best at warmer climates, and the hybrid is highly likely to do exceptionally well when cultivated indoors than outdoors.
Regrettably, we are not certain whether the hybrid can be cultivated with soil as a medium. However, we are confident that with hydroponics the strain can grow very well.
When it comes to flowering time, our best guess is that this cannabis hybrid takes about eight weeks to become fully mature and ready for harvest.
Can a person suffering from terrible diseases such as depression, migraines, chronic pain, stress, and headaches use Darth Vader OG to ease the pain? Can the strain help calm down tense muscles and uplift mood and spirit? Short answer, yes.
Although this hybrid can help with all these terrible illnesses, it excels best at helping with insomnia. Its deeply relaxing effects are proven to help people suffering from insomnia fall into a deep and peaceful sleep.
Darth Vader OG can make you feel very hungry, making it the ideal strain for people who struggle with loss of appetite.
Possible Side Effects
There is no doubt that Darth Vader OG will give you that full-body melt and introspective state you’re looking for. However, these effects may come with several side effects including dry mouth and dry eyes.
The good news is you can reduce the occurrence of these adverse reactions by ingesting a small amount of Vader OG at a time and drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Besides the two side effects mentioned above, there’s practically nothing to worry about except maybe feeling a little dizzy, especially when you exceed your limits.
Overall, Darth Vader OG is a great marijuana strain with strong body effects that kick in fast and last long enough. The strain will give you a lethargic and full-body buzz at the onset before rapidly picking up the pace into a complete body melt and sedation.
