Overview of Platinum OG


Platinum OG is an indica dominant strain, with only 25 percent sativa genetics. It's a gorgeous strain, its name derived from the substantial layer of trichomes covering the nugs. Like the metal it's named after, the strain gleams with silver luster. Underneath, you'll find bud of a light, bright green color that leans toward yellow, dotted with bright pistils. The nugs are usually fairly small, and walk the line between indica density and sativa tapering.


Nugs should emit a piney, diesel-like scent that can be undercut by notes of sweet mint and lemon. Platinum OG's profile is tasty enough to appeal to new consumers, and rich enough to please experienced smokers.


Multiple cannabis sources consider Platinum OG one of the heaviest strains in the contemporary market. Its THC levels are consistently high, ranging all the way up to the high 20's. THC content of 24 percent is average in most markets. Platinum OG has negligible CBD levels.
