Diamond OG is a forceful indica with a taste and a high that live up to its luxurious name. Although popular throughout the West Coast, this strain’s exact genetic makeup is unknown. Some sources describe it as a cross between OG Kush and an unknown second parent. On the other hand, California-based Midnight Farms sells clones of a Diamond OG that they bill as a distinct phenotype of OG Kush. Whatever its parentage, there’s no denying this strain’s potency — its THC levels have been measured at between 13% and 22%.
Diamond OG boasts impressively large flowers. These stubby, bullet-shaped nugs adhere in a dense, solid bud structure that is typically associated with indicas. Leaves are a dark shade of olive green and are threaded through with yellow to orange pistils. A thick layer of resinous trichomes glitters on the inner and outer surfaces of these flowers and makes them particularly sticky.
The woodsy scent of pine and cedar wafts up from cured buds of Diamond OG. This dank aroma also has a citrus undertone, not often seen in OG varieties. Grinding up these sticky nugs releases a spicy, hashy scent, likely the influence of Afghani landrace genetics in the strain’s background. Although it may be harsh and cough-inducing to inhale, a refreshing taste of citrus comes through on the exhale. Smokers should keep in mind that this can be a particularly pungent smoke; those looking to maintain discretion should take any necessary precautions.
