Is Donny Burger Strain Indica or Sativa? 

The original creator of the Donny Burger weed strain is Skunk House Genetics, a breeder renowned for producing top-caliber cannabis. Whether the “Donny Berger” reference was intentional or not, one thing’s certain – the strain shares more with this character than just a name. Like the loveable but unreliable movie dad, the hybrid isn’t always consistent, at least with its sativa-to-indica ratio. Though generally 60% indica leaning, this hybrid can go either way, depending on the cultivator.

Skunk House Genetics cleverly crafted the Donny Burger strain genetics by backcrossing the legendary GMO and Han Solo Burger.

GMO (short for Garlic, Mushrooms, and Onions) is the potent offspring of the notorious Girl Scout Cookies and Chemdawg. This heavily indica-dominant hybrid contains high levels of THC and is often called Garlic Cookies for its pungent fragrance and distinctive garlicky/onion taste. Han Solo Burger, a cross between GMO and Larry OG, adds some balance to the mix with a 70:30 sativa-dominance. Its THC level is rumored to reach up to 30%, making this family a dangerous choice for beginners.
