Silicon Valley OG

About

Silicon Valley O.G. is an indica leaning hybrid strain that is a cross between Valley Girl and Star Dawg. The strain was created by Grow Healthy is one of their premium strains. It has high THC amounts exceeding 25%, though some users have reported batches with up to 78% and 82% THC. The CBD amount is also significantly high, 4%, making this strain very medicinal.

Silicon Valley OG is a beautiful strain with deep green nugs that are heavily coated with milkish white trichomes. At the end of the flowering stage, the trichomes will have formed a sparkling layer on top of the nugs bringing out the entire beauty of this strain. The pistils have a fiery orange appearance that breaks the monotony of the deep green. The nugs are dense and small-medium in stature but had to break by hand because of the heavy trichome coating. Be prepared to use a grinder if you are doing the preparation for yourself.

Silicon Valley OG has an earthy pine aroma with sour undertones and hints of diesel. Upon inhaling you may be able to detect light citrus notes at the back of your mouth. Expect an impressively thick smoke that is easy to blow in circles. Compared to other Grow Healthy strains, many users have placed this indica leaning hybrid strain somewhere in between in terms of effects. Could be that the high CBD balance off the psychoactive effects of the THC.
