Fire OG is one of OG Kush’s most potent descendants. A powerhouse in itself, drawing in too much of its smoke can lead to debilitating consequences. In moderation, however, it induces a pleasant cerebral buzz that lasts up to 3 hours.
Though it barely needs to be improved upon, a mystery breeder wanted to use its genetics to create a new hybrid that embodied its head high but with an equally strong physical effect. And, what better choice is there than the famous Skywalker strain? Its heavy-hitting body high, along with its tremendous medicinal qualities, make it a top-notch cross.
Firewalker OG is, in many respects, an enhanced version of Fire OG. It carries the distinct flavors that OG strains carry. Highly potent, its THC content which measure up to 25% induce a high that brings users beyond the sky. It also has a tranquilizing psychedelic high that crushes stress in its path.

Almost immediately after the first few puffs, Firewalker OG uplifts the mind and puts it at ease. Moods change for the better as a sense of happiness replaces negativity. The mental clarity also brings back the creative spark lost to stress and overwork.
For casual users, the boost in imagination is a welcome addition to an otherwise boring day at the office. Thoughts are clearer and flow smoother into innovative ideas or novel solutions as the bud offers a new way of thinking.
After some time has passed, the uplifting buzz that erupts in the temples during the initial onset develops into a tingling sensation. It gradually ebbs down to the rest of the body, surging in the muscles as a rush of energy. Like a well-oiled machine ready for a test drive, users move with fluidity and a bounce in each step.
The light pressure is completely tranquilizing as it envelops the body in full-bodied relaxation. Rather than an overwhelming physical high, however, it is a consistent buzz of energy. The effect lasts for hours until it slowly wanes away. Even then, users do not feel tired.
Firewalker OG is an extremely pungent strain with an aroma that is immediately noticeable even from afar. However, it smells nothing like burnt food. Instead, it is a bowl of herbs spritz with a zesty citrus before being sprinkled with spices. Broken apart or combusted, it releases woody notes a floral earth.
Drawing in Firewalker OG is like taking a spoonful of nutritious herbs doused with spices and citrus. Savoring its smoke reveals its floral underneath a backdrop of earth. On the exhale, it leaves a strong woody aftertaste.
Most of the reactions that come with Firewalker OG’s use are typical of potent Sativa-dominant strains. For example, in excessive amounts, the herb increase anxiety levels that can progress into a bout of paranoia. Most of the time, however, users only experience a headache which can also be avoided through pacing and moderation.
Like all strains, its cannabinoids interfere with moisture production in the tear ducts. As such, it is not uncommon to experience dry red eyes that can sometimes be quite itchy. Accompanying it is a cottonmouth as saliva is also inhibited. Downing a few glasses of water and staying hydrated usually helps ease the ache but users can also choose to ignore the symptoms as it is often mild.
There are a handful of health benefits that come with the use of Firewalker OG regardless of whether one uses it for therapeutic purposes or not.
By lifting the spirits up, it clears the mind of life’s worries during the high. In doing so, it also releases pent-up stress accumulated throughout the day or the week. Similarly, it acts as an anti-depressant to help manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues such as PTSD albeit temporarily.
In enough concentrations, THC turns into a powerful analgesic that will ease various types of pain like cramp. Firewalker OG’s potency, for example, appeases aches beginning from the temples – making it a great alternative for mitigating headaches.
Climate and location are two factors that matter most to growing Firewalker OG. Being Sativa-dominant, it most likely prefers a warm, semi-humid environment similar to the Mediterranean. In such areas, the sun is constantly shining for long hours.
It may have difficulty growing in the northern hemisphere where the daytime is quite short. For this reason, many growers prefer placing the strain indoors until its structure hardens before moving out into a garden or farm. Still, it is possible for the plant to flourish in colder regions. One trade-off though is a longer flowering time.
Growers will need to know how to manage its height though. It has a tall, lanky structure that will grow out of bounds if left unattended. Topping the plant early or shortening its vegetative period will keep it short. Pruning and trimming the plant will also improve air and light circulation among lower-end branches and nodes.
Applying the Screen of Green method in tandem with other Low-Stress Training techniques encourages higher yields. To enhance flavors, growers may opt to cultivate the plant in soil. On the other hand, soilless mediums produce buds free of pesticides as well as disease.
In controlled environments, Firewalker OG flowers within 10 to 12 weeks. Though the wait is long, growers can harvest an average of 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.
Outdoor growers can expect Firewalker OG to be ready for harvest by late October to the middle of November. It usually produces at least 16 ounces of buds per plant. However, it is not uncommon for seasoned growers to harvest more at an earlier week.
