Ancient OG is a pure Indica obtained through crossing two well-known parents, Kush and Truberry OG, giving it all the best characteristics of its parents while keeping it on the moderate side in terms of potency. When it comes to the THC content, it usually varies from 10.75 to 17.64%, while CBD levels may easily reach the mark of 0.29%. With these numbers in mind, this weed can be safely recommended for use not only by veteran weed smokers, but also by newbies looking for a relaxing effect. In general, the strain is known for producing a deep sedative effect, making it best suited for end-of-the-day smoke sessions.

The Scent and Taste of Ancient OG

The scent of the Ancient OG is described as thick and earthy, with deliciously sweet notes of lemon, pine, and grapefruit. Upon breaking the nugs apart, you will also detect a slightly spicy herbal scent with cheesy overnotes, coming from the caryophyllene terpene, that will be lingering on your tongue for a long while.

The Weed Effects and Uses

The Ancient OG strain proves to be one of the best weeds for providing quick relief from depression, stress, and fatigue. As mentioned earlier, it produces a deep sedative effect that can virtually drop you off in a state of relaxation, eliminating any muscle knots and helping to keep racing thoughts at bay. The high can also help with keeping you focused and concentrated, making it a great choice for those who find it difficult to sit down for long periods of time.

Due to its effects, the Ancient OG strain is known to be an effective tool for medical patients suffering from the following symptoms and health conditions, such as:

  • All sorts of pain
  • Epilepsy
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Depression
  • PTSD

However, please note that consuming the weed in an excessively high dose can actually worsen the symptoms, so, if you want to avoid negative effects, it’s best to use it with caution.

Growing Tips

If you’ve decided to try your hands at growing the Ancient OG, the good news is, the plant is quite easy to grow. It doesn't catch on the moss as easily as some other strains, and can quickly adapt to pretty much any environment. As a rule, indoor plants yield from 1-2 Oz/ft, while outdoor harvests can easily reach 550 grams per bush. When the plant is ready to harvest, which usually happens 68 days after the flowering cycle, it gets covered with small spade-shaped minty green nugs with a dark orange coating and crystal white trichomes.

Ancient OG Strain Cannabinoids

THC 10.75 - 17.64% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.02 - 0.29% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.32 - 0.62% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.41 - 1.3% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.04 - 0.24% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.46 - 0.8% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Ancient OG Terpene Profile

Bisabolol 0.23% Bisabolol (also known as α-Bisabolol or levomenol) is a lesser-known terpene found in cannabis. It contributes to anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, antioxidant, anti-microbial, and analgesic properties of weed strains containing bisanol. Attentive smokers would be able to catch a nutty, fruity scent with herbal and floral undertones, with a tender trace of coconut.
Nerolidol 0.08% Nerolidol (also known as trans-nerolidol) is a terpene found in jasmine, tea tree, and lemongrass, as well as in some cannabis strains. Nerolidol has a distinguished floral aroma with notes of citrus, apples, and rose. The terpene has sedative, anti-anxiety, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, and pain-relieving properties.
Phellandrene 0.46% Phellandrene (also known as alpha- and beta-phellandrene) is one of the rare terpenes found in cannabis with antihyperalgesic and antidepressive properties. Phellandrene contributes to a minty, woody, and mildly citrus aroma in cannabis. Previously confused with limonene and pinene, phellandrene was eventually distinguished as a separate terpene common for eucalyptus. Also, it could be found in mint, dill, black pepper, cinnamon, parsley, pine, and lavender.
Caryophyllene 0.23% Caryophyllene (also known as beta or b caryophyllene) is a terpene found in many herbs and spices, such as black pepper, basil, rosemary, and oregano. Cannabis high in caryophyllene delivers a strong spicy, peppery aroma, resembling cinnamon and cloves. Caryophyllene offers potent anti-inflammatory and sedative effects.
