The breeders of these seeds are from the company Cali Connections in California. This is the name behind some of the most amazing marijuana experts out there.

Since the latter is a marvelous descendant of the popular OG Kush, this strain has plenty of the Kush properties and effects.

Sour OG Grow Info

Growing this pot isn’t very easy. It’s a moderate growth, which makes it popular with experienced growers only. It requires a hydroponic set up or soil. Since it is one of the most popular strains, growers absolutely dwell in growing its seeds.

The plant is highly resistant to different molds and mildews and won’t be easily affected by a bit of moisture. The ideal temperature for growth is somewhere between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In the right conditions, it can be grown outdoors.

Because of the dense buds, you need to trim the plant regularly to expose the lower buds to light. This might prove to be difficult unless you use sharp scissors because of the dense trichome coating on the buds. Other than this, the plant is simple to grow. It requires a regular, basic feeding schedule. Its flowering period is between 7 and 9 weeks.

How does Sour OG smell?

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.

    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.

    Gregorio Martin

    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.

    Jan Green

    The distinct flavours I managed to positively identify were sweetness, sourness and earthiness
