OG Kush is renowned for its exceptional Indica traits. A reasonable expectation is that its descendants would be as close to the original as possible. However, that is not the case. In fact, it is common for cannabis varieties to spawn phenotypes. Think of it much like siblings. All come from the same parents, but each one is likely to have unique personalities.
Information about Wellness OG:
Phenotypes may exhibit different appearances, fragrance, or flavors. It may also have varying potency. One phenotype, in particular, is Wellness OG which leans more towards the Sativa genetics.
Much like how individuals can differ from their parents with unique personalities, Wellness OG is not only different in its genetics, but it is also a far more potent strain than the original OG Kush. Reports show its average THC levels to be between 18% to 26%. At least one plant was also tested to contain a whopping 33% THC.
Unsurprisingly, Wellness OG packs a powerful punch. Users should not take this strain for granted. Ideally, only seasoned veterans and people with high THC tolerance should give this strain a go.
From its name, one can deduce that Wellness OG is a strain made for the medical market. In fact, it even won first place in the 2015 SoCal Medical Cup. Even so, its appeal extends beyond therapeutic purposes. Boasting of unique and powerful mental effects, it is also appealing to recreational users.

Wellness OG has a quick onset. Users often feel high in only a few minutes after the first toke. The psychedelic effects begin with an intense euphoric head high. It leaves users feeling happy and cheerful. As the mind clears, the strain inspires creativity and better ability to focus.
At the height of the mental stimulation, the upbeat feeling that Wellness OG induces is further enhanced by a boost in energy. Feeling reinvigorated, users stay motivated in being productive and can go on completing one task after the other.
Gradually, a warm sensation drifts down to the body. It is when the Indica traits of the strain begin to manifest. Gently, it blends in with the cerebral high even as it spreads to the extremities.
In more ways than one, Wellness OG is the opposite of OG Kush. While the predecessor can induce a numbing body buzz, the descendant is more uplifting and not likely to cause laziness, let alone a couch-lock.
As alluded to, this is one extremely potent strain. Used excessively, or exceeding tolerance level, it can bring on overwhelming psychedelic effects. Thus, some people may end up with a speedy or trippy mental stimulation while glued to the chair or the bed.
Taking after its parent herb, Wellness OG has the rather distinctive diesel smell. Its OG Kush influence is immediately recognizable, especially when large amounts of the strain are present. Moreover, it is extremely citric with obvious hints of lemon oozing off the bud. Underneath the two overpowering scents is a refreshing, earthy pine. Together, all these melds into a scent that is much like that of an air purifying aerosol.
Wellness OG has a refreshing flavor that is similar to how it smells. It has the zest of sweet lemons and the minty taste of pine. Besides that, this strain produces a smooth smoke that is easy on the throat. On the exhale, there is a pungent which is weirdly savory.
Compared to other strains, Wellness OG’s adverse effects are timid. Users have a sure chance of experiencing mild dryness in the mouth and the eyes. Of course, this is nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to marijuana consumption.
A past winner of the SoCal Medical Cup, the medical benefits of Wellness OG is invaluable to people in need. Much like OG Kush, its best use is to wipe out stress. Furthermore, its pronounced elating high keeps depressive moods at bay. Thus, many people going through depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have benefited with its use.
Besides the behavioral changes, Wellness OG also has analgesic impacts on the body. Inducing soothing physiological effects, chronic pain, muscle tension, and fatigue are relieved. Best of all, the same psychoactive compound can also help alleviates nausea.
Wellness OG is such a wonderful strain for both recreational and medical use. And, that makes it a desirable plant for the home cultivators. Unfortunately, it is not available in seed form. Getting a clipping is likely the only way to grow this plant, and that can be problematic, to say the least.
At any rate, it is a beautiful plant that boasts of neon green buds covered with a thick coating of golden crystals.
