Monterey Bud

Famous OG does just what you’d expect your favorite Indica to do in stressful moments: relax your muscles, soothe the mind, and numb your pain. Loaded with trichome encrusted calyces and neon orange pistils, this strain proves to be a effectively therapeutic. Fresh, cured, and still a bit sticky, today’s variant was cultivated by Famous Genetics. Dissected for rolling as my after-lunch smoke, the Famous OG nugs crop-dusted my office with two distinct aromas – the fresh scent of sweet pine and a seriously pissed-off skunk. Powerful and persuasive.

Lights, camera, action! Famous OG is the right cultivar when you want to give your sesh the red-carpet treatment. These fluffy nuggets have an unbelievable structure and are entirely powdered with trichomes. The master growers of Famous Genetics cultivated intensely fragrant flowers – it’s an understatement to say Famous OG smells incredible. The moment the bag was opened, a waft of dankness settled into the room. The aroma alone gave me a lot to anticipate, would the flavor profile hold up? I smoked Famous OG in a joint and immediately tasted deep earthy notes with subtle pine. Each toke was velvety smooth and left my body in a deep, deep relaxation.

Famous OG is so skunky, you’d think Pepé Le Pew took a nap in this bed of buds. The burnt green flowers are dusted with sugary trichomes, while the bright orange pistils carry tiny translucent trichomes. The alarming skunk smell fades into a smooth and mild Skywalker flavor. I tasted subtle hints of citrus-floral flavors with a pine-filled kick that gives the strain its OG surname. Famous OG tingles on the tongue and leaves behind the blend of sandalwood, Bergamot and roses. After smoking Famous OG, I was up and ready to run … to get coffee. This strain has a strong Indica presence and makes my body feel fully canna-tose.

Famous OG is a super fragrant bud that made my entire apartment smell like a skunk had just walked in and made herself at home. Besides the skunk-forward aroma, this bud also has a  subtle woodsy flavor of a tree – I imagine a taste that reminds you of camping. After sharing a joint with friends, I surprisingly found myself in work mode, coming up with ideas and recalling unfinished, forgotten. Thanks, Famous OG!
