Deadhead OG is a 50/50 marijuana hybrid that gains its cannabinoid and terpene profiles from the genetics of the famous Chemdawg 91 and SFV OG Kush. This is an award-winning strain that took second place at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2011. The breeder is The Cali Connection.

Its THC level varies between 19% and 22%, while its CBD content reaches 0.17-0.39%. Since the Deadhead OG strain is potent, it is recommended for consumers who have a high THC tolerance.

Taste and Flavor

The cannabis emits strong pine, woody, and at times skunky flavors due to the presence of the pinene terpene. The aroma can also be described as having sweet, earthy, and pungent notes typical for camphene and ocimene. The list of major terpenes is complemented by myrcene and limonene.

Deadhead OG Strain Cannabinoids

THC 20.6 - 23.2% 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 0.41 - 0.61% 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 0.34 - 0.92% 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 0.12 - 1.34% 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 - 0.22% 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.

THCV 0.16 - 0.79% 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.

Amazing sativa high, put me straight into full body relaxation. I might say its one of the best sativa highs ever, but it is a bit harsh on the lungs. A bit too chunky for me

I hear a lot of people saying how potent this strain is when you smokoe it through a pipe, but I prefer to roll it in a blunt and enjoy. I like how it starts messing with my head and then starts running through my whole body.
