Marshmallow OG strain

Its name may be credited due to the familiar scent that the Marshmallow OG strain gives off, reminiscent of a big bag of sweet marshmallows with a herbal punch. Or perhaps it’s because of the high it evokes, leaving you feeling all soft and squishy. Either way, it’s hard not to be a fan of this delectable herb, and in this Marshmallow OG strain analysis, we’re going to break down exactly why. 

There are loads of sweet-flavored dessert stains out there, yet the Marshmallow OG weed strain still stands apart from the rest, carving out a reputation for itself. This beautifully balanced hybrid strain delivers equally pleasurable indica and sativa effects with high concentrations of THC, reaching as high as 33% (averaging between 20% – 29%). The price will certainly vary depending on if you’re getting Marshmallow OG at dispensary quality or just a general outdoor version.

Is the Marshmallow OG strain indica or sativa?

The Marshmallow OG marijuana strain is a balanced hybrid that may be slightly indica dominant from time to time. It’s hard to say if Marshmallow OG strain sativa or indica qualities take dominance; rather they both get their time to shine, allowing your buzz to start on a high note and gently lower you into states of calm on the back end. 

The original breeder is often listed as Compound Genetics although there is speculation that WyEast Farms were collaboratively involved in the initial production of the Marshmallow OG strain.

Legend has it that there is more than one Marshmallow OG strain, one of which is claimed to be an OG Kush crossed with an unknown strain with a low to mid-range THC content. This is not the Marshmallow OG we’re focusing on. The version that piques our interest is the sexy 3-way of Chemdawg x Triangle Kush x Jet Fuel Gelato. 

The plants that makeup Marshmallow OG strain genetics are not commonly known for their sweet, dessert tones yet the combined result is surprisingly candy flavored. Chemdawg and Triangle Kush are both highly indica dominant strains hovering around the 80:20 ratio, with both possessing THC levels in the mid-20s. These strains also happen to be descendants of the American classic OG Kush.

Growing Marshmallow OG outdoors

The Marshmallow OG strain grows to a medium height of 5ft – 6.6ft with dense foliage. With limited growing information, however, many growers have looked to the Marshmallow OG parent strains to acquire clues on its habits and preferences. What they surmise is that if it’s anything like its parent strains (why would it not be?), then it may prefer warm, temperate climates.  As with most cannabis grow-ops, good ventilation and airflow are always key to eliminating risks of mold and pests

Flowering time 

Any sort of cultivation can be so incredibly beneficial for the soul, whether it be growing cannabis or veggies, but at the end of the day, the best reward is the harvest as it is the visual representation of the care and effort that went into it. The Marshmallow G strain harvest for outdoor growers can be expected in early October. Indoor growers can prepare for a flowering time of 63-70 days.
