Skywalker OG Cannabis Strain (Everything You Need To Know)
Skywalker OG, also known as Skywalker OG Kush, is an Indica-dominant hybrid (85% indica, 15% Sativa) strain that hits home hard. Skywalker OG offers up a beautiful combination of the couch-locked heaviness of the body with a euphoric cerebral high that fades to peaceful sleepiness on the comedown. Due to these potent side-effects, Skywalker OG may not be ideal for new cannabis consumers, but seasoned kush fans and those in need of serious pain relief should definitely put it on their list.
In keeping with the murky past of most OG strains, the provenance of strain Skywalker OG genetics is hard to pin down. One variety, developed by Dutch Passion Seed Company, is said to be a cross of OG Kush and Skywalker (Blueberry X Mazar). However, many old school breeders maintain that the original Skywalker OG strain is actually a phenotype of OG Kush, selected for its Sativa-dominant traits.
