OG Skunk is a sativa-dominant hybrid that brings out the tangy terpene profile of its parents OG # 18 and Skunk #1. The former is a descendant of the original ocean grown strain. Like hundreds of its siblings, it has the distinct lemon flavored smoke that induces a stimulating psychoactive effect that eventually tapers into a relaxing euphoria. However, like its parent, it has a weakness against high levels of humidity. To address this, the breeders added Skn # 1 to improve its overall sturdiness.

|60% / 40%||14 to 21 ounces per square meter||21 ounces or more per plant||7 – 9 weeks indoors, late September to mid-October outdoors.|

OG Skunk is a sturdy strain. It has a thick frame which are indicated by its thick branches and leaves. It is also quite compact which allows growers to strategize its placement with ease. Because of this, it is a great introductory strain for aspiring beginners.
It grows with relative ease in the northern hemisphere due to its propensity for cool weather. However, it will need to be transferred indoors when the weather is harsh such as during heavy rains which may snap its branches into two. If it is inconvenient, one may also choose to install a temporary enclosing in the are. This will also keep it safe against the frost or snow that might kill it overnight.
Indoors, it will need to be pruned often to thin out its dense foliage. Otherwise, it can harbor moisture in between its leaves and the lower nodes which will develop into mold or mildew. Moreover, the high levels of water in the air can prevent the soil from drying properly leading to root rot. Other than trimming, growers can also install a proficient ventilation system that will reduce humidity. It works best with the Sea of Green method. It takes advantage of its short structure and lateral branching while maximizing yields.
