SFV OG by Guru Seeds is a hybrid with a slight sativa edge. The plant tends to grow quite tall and requires a lot of nutrients. Therefore it is more suited to experienced growers. SFV OG is famous for combining pain-alleviating properties, with a pleasant head-high.
Heritage & Genetics: This strain came all the way from San Fernando Valley (hence SFV) and was first bred by the infamous Cali Connection. SFV OG has some prestigious history, being a cross between an OG Kush phenotype with Afghani #1. The result is a sativa-dominant hybrid with high THC content (about 20%).
Flavor & Aroma: SFV OG is quite a smelly strain, emitting a characteristic skunk odor during flowering. Its earthy and yet dense piney/citrus taste that can be harsh if smoked, so vaping is a better option for a smoother experience.
Effect: The effects of this hybrid are a nice combo of sativa and indica, with a hazy head-high that dissolves into a pain-relieving sensation. Although this is a great daytime strain, it is not recommended for productivity sessions, as the indica after-effect can induce major laziness. Save it for the weekend.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Growing SFV OG is not a job for the faint-hearted, as it needs a lot of care. Hydroponics with Reverse osmosis water (RO) is the best option for indoor growers. If left untrained, the plant will grow aggressively upwards, taking up all vertical space. Therefore, SCROG is the best option to maximize production. SFV OG will be ready within ten weeks and has the potential for large yields. Flowers are not very impressive, due to their small size, but what they lack in appearance, they make up in potency and aroma.
