Aspen OG is a relatively new hybrid cannabis strain that is making a name for itself thanks to its balanced indica and sativa effects. It is a cross between Sour Cream and San Fernando Valley OG Kush that was developed by 303 Seeds.
The strain has medium-sized flowers with buds that have the densely packed structure of indica but the elongated spade-like shape of sativa. The leaves are yellow-green and threaded with orange pistils. There is also a coat of white trichomes, making the flowers sticky and resinous. The scent is dank and piney with hints of sourness. When ground, a smell of nuts becomes apparent and when burnt, the taste is skunky with a hint of sweetness.
The high from Aspen OG starts as a head high and is followed by cerebral activity, sharpened senses and racing thoughts. Some may experience mild visual distortions and time dilation. After a while, a body stone begins to take effect, but it does not result in full on couchlock. Aspen OG is probably best used in the afternoon as the sativa edge may keep you awake.
Aspen OG is also used by some medicinal users. Its sedative properties can help with aches and pains, and it can also be a strong appetite stimulant. Furthermore, thanks to its cerebral intensity, it may be able to help with moderate stress, anxiety and depression. It has even been known to help those with attention deficit disorders.
The strain is considered moderately difficult to grow, meaning it isn’t the best choice for newcomers. It can be grown indoors and will flower within 9 to 10 weeks.
