Information about Face Off OG:
Face Off OG is profusely likened to the 1997 hit movie ‘Face/Off’ starring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage and for good reason. Like the film’s brilliant battle of wits and strategies, the strain stimulates the mind and allows its users to focus. But what happens once the heavy-hitting Indica effects take over? Suffice to say, the numbing sensation makes the face feel like its melting right off.
Equally interesting is Face Off OG’s backstory. The 90’s classic is said to be one of the few original cuts from the first batch of OG Kush phenotypes. Its seed form was sent to a select group of breeders. One of which is Archive Seeds who later decided to create cuts from a mature female, also known as the ‘motherplant,’ to preserve its genes.
Testing up to 20% THC, the bud is no doubt powerful. Its skull-crushing buzz can easily overwhelm even the most seasoned of users. In moderation, however, Face Off OG is great for mid to late afternoons or early evenings that require just a little bit of work done before capping the day off.

Regardless of the strain, marijuana causes dehydration. It is likely that users end up with a cottonmouth and possibly red eyes especially with certain cannabinoids interfering with the production of moisture in the tear ducts. Those with experience usually ignore it for its mildness. Still, beginners may want to drink a glass of water before and after a pot session to appease the symptoms. At times, it may temporarily dizzy users.
Besides its recreational use, the psychoactive compounds in marijuana also have therapeutic benefits. Its high levels of THC, for example, have analgesic properties that provide a reprieve against body pain. And, with the anti-inflammatory components of CBD, it reduces swelling and redness.

At the moment, Face Off OG is only available as a clone. As such, it requires the expert care and attention of a seasoned grower. They are a direct female ‘cut’ from the original ‘motherplant’ and do not need to be germinated. Instead, they are fed ‘pure water’ until their roots begin to grow. However, it requires previous successful experience as some beginners may overwater, overfeed their plants with nutrients, or accidentally expose them to too much heat or moisture.
As a clone, Face Off OG guarantees its growers a full female batch, a perfect replica of its mother’s DNA, and stable chemical compounds. However, they tend to be quite sensitive. As such, they are better suited for indoor growing. And, although they can be grown in soil, a hydroponic system will bring out its full potential and ensure it is clean. Growers may also apply the Screen of Green method and expose it to a 12/12 light cycle.
