This 50/50 hybrid comes from interesting genetics. It was bred by Emerald Triangle Seeds – they’re responsible for Lemon Diesel too. This time they started by crossing Cherry Thai with some Afghani (Indica). They did this to increase the density/yield of the Cherry Thai, since it is a Sativa.
“Due to its pain-relieving qualities and reputation for potency, Lost Coast OG is one of the most sought after medicinal strains in California.”
Once successful, they backcrossed it with the original Cherry Thai mother to bring out the heady, uplifting high. Finally, Emerald Triangle crossed it with their Lost Coast OG in order to increase potency.
The Cherry OG strain gave me a euphoric feeling and reduced my anxiety dramatically. The pain relief from the Lost Coast OG truly stood out this strain. It eventually made me tired, so I probably wouldn’t medicate with this early in the day.
This isn’t the first time I’ve come across a top-notch strain with Lost Coast OG in its genetics: Emerald Triangle Seeds used it when breeding their Lemon Diesel strain, which placed in the top ten at the 2010 Emerald Cup. It’s considered to be a 60/40 Indica-dominant strain. To get Lost Coast OG they crossed the offspring of (Pakistani Kush x Lemon Thai) with Chemdawg #4.
When I examined this strain, the thing that caught my attention at first was the smell. Its diesel scent with cherry overtones was something unlike anything I’ve come across before. The cherry taste really stood out when I rolled it in a joint.
The flowers were a dark, lush green and covered in orange hairs. They had a tight and compact bud structure that made it look like the typical OG flower. This definitely carried over in terms of its effects.
The genetics boast two strains that are incredibly flavorful. Emerald Triangle Seeds says the strain will have 3 major variations; I could identify two predominant aromas in this specific cut. The cherry was the most noticeable at first, but I soon recognized a strong diesel scent. This was likely due to the Chemdawg in the genetics of Lost Coast OG.

Cherry OG Strain Leaves Lasting Impression
True to its name the first thing people notice about this unique bud is that it is smaller and darker than most and has a visibly reddish tone. It’s quite reminiscent of, well, what else? Cherries! The Cherry OG strain is the child of Cherry Thai, Afghani, and Lost Coast OG. Let’s explore more about this uniquely balanced bud and see what it has to offer.
The euphoric heady high produced in Cherry OG can ease your depression. As one user noted on Instagram, “The high starts very strong in the head and gets creative thoughts and energy flowing in abundance. Afterwards deep muscle relaxation.” If the stress of depression has blocked your creativity or focus then the Cherry OG strain may be perfect for you.
If you hadn’t already guessed it, that soothing snooze that results from the full body high is perfect for treating insomnia. Insomnia is bad for many well known and documented reasons. It makes it difficult to stay sharp and function throughout the day. Similar to depression it can be treated with strong medication with some strong side effects. Those who want to tackle this problem naturally can turn to a strain like Cherry OG.
As mentioned the Cherry OG strain was bred as a combination of Cherry Thai and Lost Coast OG, originally produced by Emerald Triangle. First, the Cherry Sativa Thai was crossed with an Afghan Indica so that its density and yield would increase given the low yield of the Cherry Thai. The offspring was then introduced to Lost Coast OG. Lost Coast OG is a well known Emerald Triangle strain that is 60/40 indica dominant.
Another side effect to be wary of is dry mouth or headaches. Dry mouth is a common side effect for many strains, however, it’s just a minor inconvenience for the benefits you get from this blend! Headaches are less common but can be easily taken care of with hydration and an over the counter pain med like Advil or Tylenol.
When thinking about Cherry OG remember these keywords: euphoria and total body relaxation. In fact, some describe it as being locked down to your couch but with a euphoric cerebral high that makes you happy as a clam . I don’t know about you but that sounds like a perfect evening after a long stressful day at work.
As far as medical uses the strain can quickly provide both stress and pain relief as well as be a good antidote for insomnia.
The Cherry OG Strain is truly an original ganja blend. A cherry flavored hybrid with a diesel aroma that can take you back in time to feel like an OG hanging out in a hazy cloud of smoke.
Treating your depression with marijuana? There is quite a bit to know about marijuana and depression. Remember that ganja therapy is not a substitute for real, actual therapy. Although ideally, you would find a ganja friendly therapist who will let you smoke during the session. I’ve heard that it exists!
