The effects of OG Tonic are best described as subtle yet pleasurable. At up to 10%, seasoned users likely feel nothing when toking this strain. However, the experience is totally different for beginners. For them, the herb delivers a mild psychedelic high that is perfect for those with low tolerance to THC.
It usually takes quite some time before the effects of OG Tonic show up. In fact, its onset is so gradual that it is only obvious once it hits. Those deliberately paying attention to the buildup will notice a surge of energy as well as brightened mood.
The physical effects kick in about an hour or two after the first hit. In subtle waves, it soothes the body until it envelops it in relaxation. Freed of tension and inhibition, the natural aphrodisiac begins to stimulate the user. For this reason, OG Tonic is best used in the evening together with a loved one.
High THC strains often emit a strong aroma. But, in the case of OG Tonic, it is its CBD component that causes the pungent fragrance with earthy undertones. Broken apart, the buds fill the room with a spicy skunk.
In terms of taste, OG Tonic mimics freshly picked herbs. At the first draw, there are overtones of damp soil as though the bud had just been uprooted. A spiciness explodes on the palate as the smoke is savored yet it leaves a skunky aftertaste once exhaled.
Aside from their wondrous pharmacological value, the great thing about high CBD strains is that they rarely come with backhanded effects. In fact, vaping OG Tonic only causes a cottonmouth that is barely even felt. If it, in any way, causes a prolonged discomfort, one can easily hydrate with a glass of water or two.
From its name, one can already guess OG Tonic’s reason for being. The immensely therapeutic plant was designed to meet the needs of medical users. Its high CBD values of up to 12%, coupled with its psychoactive compounds and cannabinoids, relieve various afflictions that affect both the mind and the body.
As a tonic, its best purpose is bringing back vitality. Its mild high fights off negativity and intrusive thoughts that are so often found in patients diagnosed with depression and PTSD. By doing so, it builds self-confidence so happiness may settle back in comfortably. The mental clarity and stimulation is great for those bombarded by stress on a day-to-day basis.
Besides the mental, OG Tonic has physiological benefits too especially when used as an analgesic. Backed by the excellence of its Indica lineage, it provides a reprieve against chronic body pain. Spreading over the body is a tingling sensation that soothes away aches beginning from the temples.
Now, all that is left is for users to succumb to total body relaxation. In time, the heaviness turns into an unencumbered slumber.

Most makers of medical marijuana maintain a proprietary hold on its products. It is largely invoked to avoid the creation of substandard merchandise that can potentially damage the company’s reputation as well as put users in danger. Thus, with emphasis on consumer safety, the creators of OG Tonic have not made its seeds publicly available.
A strain’s growth profile is often determined by its structure and classification. Because of its strong Indica influence, one can tell OG Tonic is a short, sturdy plant. Its branches do not break off at the weight of its heavy buds. Being so bushy, it may need constant pruning. However, growers must take care not to cut off any valuable sugar leaves.
On its classification, OG Tonic indeed a medical strain. It has more than enough CBD value to prove it. As such, one can conclude that the bud is almost always grown indoors.
Not just for commercial purposes, an artificial environment allows breeders to maintain similar chemical profiles all throughout different batches.
Of course, this in no way hinders the high-quality herb’s capacity to grow outdoors. Au contraire, it flowers exceptionally well. Although, enthusiasts will have to rely on their quick-thinking skills to address unpredictable issues such as heavy rains or pests that may ruin the plant. To avoid such hassles, many commercial breeders prefer controllable grow rooms.
OG Tonic has a short flowering period thanks to its Indica structure. It only takes about 7 to 8 weeks for each square meter to come up with a combined 10 to 12 ounces of buds.
