Cherry OG is a strain of cannabis strain that resulted from breeding a combination of Cherry Thai and Lost Coast OG produced by Emerald Triangle Seeds. In order to increase the yield of Cherry Thai, it was first crossed with Afghan Indica then again backcrossed with the Thai Sativa. The resulting offspring was then crossed bred with Lost Coast O OG to provide the hybrid Cherry OG. THC content in Cherry OG typically ranges from 10-22%. The strain is described to have cherry, fruity notes with a diesel-like or sour smell on exhale.
Cherry OG has uses for both recreational and medicinal. The strain can help with stress relieving and pain relief. It is used to treat depression because of the euphoric high and deep muscle relaxation the strain induces. Some users of the strain say that it causes an outflow of energy and creativity.
The strain may cause disorientation of the mind, which is why it is not recommended for people with low tolerance for THC and people who are prone to panic. It is also not advised to be smoked before bed as it causes alertness. The usage of different strains of Cannabis should be carefully checked as different strains have different effects on the body.
