I use the wax extracted from Sour OG to bake my edibles and that has proved to be quite effcient for me. It saves time and also brings all the potency I need. The taste is not affected much by the hebs so my munchies are always delicious.

Growing this kush is no childs play, it took me a long while to figure it out and do it the right. Once you grasp how to grow this kush for perfect flowers, everything else will be good. It yields quite generously also.

The genetics of the Sour OG weed strain is a combination of 50% Indica and 50% Sativa pot. It is cross between the sativa Sour Diesel and the indica San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG Kush. The tetrahydrocannabinol in it is 15% and the cannabidiol content is 0.02%.
Sour OG smells like both its parent strains. At first, it gives a sour and skunky smell, and then it takes on an earthy, floral citrusy, and sweet fragrance.
