Everywhere on the web if one looks, the same thing is said. Grandfather OG is the DzDon of all OGs.dz And that brings to mind what people think about whenever coming across the word, Godfather.

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
40% / 60% 12 to 16 ounces per square meter16 ounces or more per plant 8 to 9 weeks indoors, late September to early October outdoors.

Children think of godfathers as heaven sent people who, in turn, send them gifts once or twice a year. But we are not children, are we? As such, what does come to mind is the evil but relatable Godfather from the movies. Referencing Al Pacino and the classic Godfather, there is one similarity between the mafia boss and our strain here.

Both are powerful, without a doubt. In fact, Godfather OG has been tested to have a THC level of 28%, one of the highest in history. It is also a past High Times Cannabis Cup winner of the best Indica strain. Like a typical mob boss, though, we do not know much about the hybrid as looking for information has proven to be elusive.

Here are some amazing seed deals. Buy 10 and get 10 seeds for free!

Where did Godfather OG come from? Come to think about it. How can cannabis users even know if it is the Godfather OG they are holding on their hands? From what we could gather, the strain is an offspring of a cross between XXX OG and Alpha OG. But there is another variant that is widespread bred from Bubba Kush, L.A Confidential and Granddaddy Purple. Still, there is one more bred from OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple.

So, which is which?

Regardless, what it suggests is that there are several breeders who have designed their own Godfather OGs, at least, the ones that are available today.

While its Indica side is more predominant, users of Godfather OG is assaulted by cerebral high first. At first, it begins with an uplifting sensation as if a shroud is lifted off the head. Soon, smokers start feeling good and happy. As the effects intensify, the good mood turns euphoric.

Pretty soon, its Indica side starts to work its way to the body, resulting in lessening tensions. In no time at all, Godfather OG puts users in a complete state of relaxation.

At 28% THC, the DzDondz can leave some people immobile if they are not careful. Used in moderation, Godfather OG is easily one of the best strains for recreational users, and we have yet to talk about its medicinal values.


Smelling Godfather OG is like standing in the middle of a grassy plain early in the morning. The earthy and pine odor are unmistakable as well as the hint of grape. As one may imagine, it really smells pleasant.


Godfather OG has flavors that are a delight as its odor is charming. Carrying over to its taste, the lingering tone of grape a little more pronounced, which most people find delightful.

Adverse reactions

Having the kind of potency that this hybrid has, it makes two common negative reactions with the use of marijuana more likely. Soon after using Godfather OG, users tend to feel their eyes and throat drying. As a way to lessen these effects, one thing that consumers can do is to drink a lot of water.

In some instances, there are people who may feel a little more anxious. If that is the case, then this strain may not be suitable. There is no way to determine who is likely to have this experience as people differ in physiology.

Now, being a potent strain, it is also possible that some may feel momentary dizziness, usually at the onset of the cerebral high. It is also possible due to excessive use.

Recreational cannabis users love Godfather OG, but even more so for medical cannabis users. Of course, anyone in the trade of cannabis is not allowed by the law to make health claims, and the same is true for food supplements. Still, while anecdotal, there is some truth to how users feel with the use of Godfather OG, as well as all kinds of marijuana.

Because Godfather OG can uplift moods, then it also follows that it is a great stress reliever. But that is not all that it does. Medical cannabis users suffering from pains brought about by their illnesses also use it for pain relief.

One of the thing that the strain does, especially once its effects subsides, is that the user feels tired and sleepy. For that reason, anyone who has trouble sleeping including insomniacs will find Godfather OG useful.

Other than feeling sleepy, another effect this strain has is to stimulate the appetite. So, for those who need a little something to get them to eat will, this is one weed that could do that.

Finally, there are also reports that Godfather OG is helpful in dealing with gastronomical problems including nausea.

As for growing Godfather OG, we could not find enough information from different sources. As such, we could only make assumptions based on its lineage, even if that is also vague.

The indications are that this plant can be grown outdoor and indoor. It grows to medium height and should be easy for beginners to cultivate. Keep in mind, though, that one variant might not be as easy as the others.

Flowering Time


We estimate that the flowering time of Godfather OG is around 8 to 9 weeks, that is pretty much the average of cannabis plants. As such, the estimated yield indoor per square meter should be around 12 to 16 ounces.


Again, we are making an assumption here. All indications point to harvest time to be somewhere between the end of September to early October. It also should have an average yield of 16 ounces or more per plant.
