A modern West Coast classic, Deadhead OG was created by master breeder Skunk VA of Cali Connection Seeds by crossing two already legendary strains, Chemdawg 91 and the SFV OG Kush. Known as a very hearty and pungent strain, most phenotypes present an earthy, piney smell and taste, though some can lean more to the diesel aromas of the SFV. As a cross of two very potent strains, Deadhead OG regularly reaches THC levels over 20%. Most users describe the high as cerebral and stimulating but with a relaxed body feel.
Deadhead OG is a hybrid medical marijuana strain with a lineage of both Sativa and Indica. Chemdawg 91 (Sativa) accounts for 60% of its DNA, while SFV OG Kush makes up the other 40%. Its THC content regularly reaches above 20%.
The aroma of Deadhead is very pungent, yet pleasant. Patients often describe notes of pine, lemon, and wood in both the raw buds and the smoke. Its earthy fragrance is very smooth, but can easily permeate a house.
A wide range of ailments can be successfully treated by Deadhead OG, including anxiety, insomnia, chronic depression, stress, and pain. Once smoked, mood elevation sets in almost immediately. Feelings of amusement and euphoria are common, and this mood improvement generally lasts for several hours. The mental high is very stimulating, resulting in increased focus and introspection, rather than a dazed, stoned feeling. It is recommended for those who want to be able to stay active after medicating. While the high does not induce lethargy, it does increase relaxation and one’s ability to fall asleep.
Accompanying the cerebral high is a soothing body high. It calms muscles and jitters, dampening any pain.
Reported side effects include paranoia, anxiety, dizziness, dry mouth, and dry eyes, but only in rare cases. Because Deadhead is such a potent strain, it is not recommended for patients who are new to smoking cannabis, or have a low tolerance level.
