The Scoop: Obi Wan OG, cultivated by the discerning botanists at Deep Roots Harvest, utilizes the strain’s collective terpenes and cannabinoids to summon the universal healing forces of the cannabis plant. Exiling pain like an unwelcome intruder, this hybridized cross of Ghost OG x Alien Rift, was right, tight, and incredibly relaxing.
The Result: Obi Wan OG provides a sedative value that is nothing short of blissful relief. No pharmaceuticals, no prescriptions, no addictive ramifications – just a soothing reprieve from aching muscles and arthritic joints. Note: located near a retirement community in southeastern Nevada, the clientele at Deep Roots Harvest is predominantly middle-aged or a senior citizen. When I visited last Wednesday, Ellen, my Budtender, informed me their elderly clientele represented a large (and rapidly growing) portion of their customer base.
The Verdict: Obi Wan OG provides many with an alternative form of safe and effectual of pain relief. But what works for some might not work for all. As each individual’s endocannabinoid system reacts differently to a strain’s myriad of compounds, Obi Wan OG traditionally works best as a homeopathic option for individuals looking to ease the discomfort of arthritis, joint inflammation, stress, and depression; replacing a toxic cocktail of different medications with a simple, medicinal, herb.

Firmly stacked and highly resinous, the flowers are loaded with ripe trichomes and enjoy a tight internodal spacing.
