If you’ve watched the fiction movie, Star Wars, you probably know several characters whose names are similar to some cannabis strains in the market today. Yoda OG is one of these popular cannabis strains. Other strains that fall in the same class include Ewok and Skywalker strains. However, they have felt the force of the law after George Lucas sued them for trademark infringement.

The best part is Yoga OG has not been affected by these lawsuits up to date. So, how does Yoda OG perform when compared to other popular marijuana strains? Let’s find out.

About Yoda OG strain

Yoda OG strain has a mysterious lineage. Researchers and scientists have discovered that it originated from the popular OG Kush strain. It is also believed that Yoda OG came to life as a result of crossing several hybrids which include Old World Paki Kush, Chemdawg and Lemon Thai.

Yoda’s Brain is an indica dominant hybrid crop with a ratio of 80:20. One common feature of Yoda OG is that it is a slow creeping strain. This means that it will take longer than other strains for you to start noticing or experiencing the effects.

Effects

When you start experiencing the effects, you should expect a euphoric high which will uplift your moods and leave you feeling happy. After a couple of minutes, the intensity of the high will start fading and the indica characteristics will start showing. Some of the characteristics include a feeling of relaxation and dizziness. These may make it extremely difficult for you to get off the couch.

Due to the effects of this amazing strain, it’s best to consume it in the evening instead of daytime to avoid inconveniencing yourself and others. It’s one of the best strains that you can consume after dinner to relax and unwind. As long as you don’t have urgent deadlines or tasks, you can relax in the evening as you enjoy the effects of this amazing strain.

Similar to the little Star Wars character Yoda OG weed is named after, this strain is strong and solid. With this in mind, the Yoda OG strain THC level of Yoda OG varies wildly depending on the sample. Some strain samples have been reported to have as low as 13 to 15 percent thc content levels. The highest thc level was recorded at 28.11 percent.

While Yoda’s Brain sample with thc content level of 28.11 percent is more of an outlier when it comes to potency, you should not underestimate or overlook it. The average thc content level of Yoga marijuana OG is around 18 to 19 percent. And this is quite powerful.

Apart from the high THC content level, Yoda OG marijuana strain is packed with indica genetics which are quite powerful. Consuming too much of this strain can leave you knocked out. If you are not careful, you’ll be out in a couple of minutes. Therefore, it’s important to know your limits and stick to them to avoid adverse effects.

Aroma

The Yoda OG strain has lemon citrusy fragrance that’s also pungent. It is complemented by woody, mild earth, and Kush aromas.

Flavor

Yoda OG has a sweet citrusy lemon flavor with underlying hints of vanilla. These sweet and crisp flavors are followed by a slight earth diesel undertone which makes this strain fairly pungent.

Appearance

Some have reported that the Yoda OG marijuana strain got its name due to its looks which are quite similar to the tiny Star Wars character. The crop is light green with thin hair-like trichomes which look like Yoda’s skin color and grey hair. If you want to know how it looks, you should consume it.

Others believe that Yoda OG cannabis is among the OG Yoda marijuana that were named after the characters in Star Wars to pay homage to the popular and legendary movie. People who don’t like using or reading about cannabis report that strain manufacturers are using character names to become famous and popular as part of their marketing plan.

It could be either of the above. However, the one thing we are sure of is Yoda’s Brain is a powerful strain that any cannabis user should try out. At the end of the day, what truly matters is not the name but the quality of the strain.

Growing Yoda OG Strain

You are probably wondering how you can grow Yoda OG if you happen to get its seeds. Well, there is little information on how easy or hard it is to grow this crop. However, it’s always best to have some experience in the fields to avoid surprises and low yields. In terms of size, Yoda OG is a medium-size crop that grows as high as 75 inches.

For the crop to bud, wax and flower, it takes around 65 days. However, this period is relative. If you want to grow Yoda OG outdoors, then it’s worth noting that early October is the ideal harvesting time.

If you are planning on growing Yoda OG indoors, you should expect an average yield of around twelve to sixteen ounces per meter squared. Outdoor enthusiasts can expect 20 ounces higher than indoor enthusiasts.

CBD content level

Numerous tests have been done on Yoda OG strain and the highest CBD level was one percent.

Medical Effects

Yoda’s Brain is a widely known and powerful cannabis with several medical effects. This strain uplifts mood and this makes it ideal for people with mental disorders such as anxiety and depression. This strain can be used for both medicinal and recreational purposes.

Those who use it for recreational purposes have reported that it’s one of the best remedies for stress and muscle tension. It’s also used to relieve body pain. Therefore, people with migraines, arthritis and back pains will greatly benefit from it.

If you have insomnia, this is the ideal strain for you because it will make it extremely difficult for you to keep your eyes open especially in the evening.

Other common marijuana benefits include:

  • Fighting cancer – Yoda’s Brain has several properties that are essential for fighting cancer in the body. Among them is CBD which is an active cannabinoid. This strain also possesses anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic properties that prevent the invasion, migration, and adhesion of cancerous cells in the body. In a short time, the cancer will be eliminated.
  • Weight management – This marijuana strain has great effects on the metabolism rate in the body. Since it contains both thc and cbd, it will automatically increase the rate at which calories are burnt in your body. If there are no calories in your body, it will automatically start the ketosis process. This will result in the formation of ketones which will act as secondary sources of energy. As you generate enough energy, the body will automatically shed off that extra weight. The same applies to most marijuana strains because I have never met a stoner who is overweight.
  • Reducing inflammation – Yoda OG strain is thought to assist in reducing inflammation in the body. This will, therefore, benefit common inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. Reducing inflammation in the body improves overall health.

Side Effects

Similar to other marijuana strains, users should expect dry eyes and mouth what is commonly referred to as cottonmouth. Consuming too much of this strain can lead to anxiety, mild paranoia and dizziness. Therefore, it’s important to know how much you are comfortable with to avoid these effects. Remember, this Yoda OG has a high THC level.

Since the side effects are creepy, you might be tempted to consume more. Avoid falling into this trap at all costs. Also, it’s best to consume this oil strain in the evening to avoid inconveniencing yourself and others.

Conclusion

The force of this Kush is strong but creepy. The sativa side ensures that you feel uplifted and happy while its indica genetics take hold of your body and help you relax.

Some of the adverse effects include dizziness, paranoia, and heightened anxiety.

It’s best to consume this pot in the evening after having dinner. Drink plenty of water and use eye drops to minimize the common effects. If you are sensible, you will stick to your limits and enjoy its amazing effects.
