San fernando valley strain

Not to be confused with SFV OG Kush, one of SFV OG’s many children, SFV OG is an OG Kush phenotype known for lighter, more sativa-like highs and qualities, such as brighter color and more citrus and diesel flavors.
As one of the original OG’s closest relatives, SFV OG’s genetics have helped breed strains like Aspen OG, a version of Ghost Train Haze, SFV OG Kush and Tahoe OG. SFV OG isn’t quite as popular as its aforementioned kids, but you can thank it for their citrus, piney flavors and well-balanced highs.

Looks: Nothing atypical here: Expect classic OG nug structure — round, moderately dense buds with limited pistil coverage — but smaller, and in a brighter shade of wintergreen.

A lot of hybrids, especially the earlier ones, were bred to build upon a parent strain’s good qualities while minimizing its undesirable traits. I remember how exciting it was to see “Jamaican Sativa” or “Purple Thai” on coffeeshop menus in Amsterdam, and how disappointing it was to find that these old-timers hadn’t evolved like the potent strains they’ve birthed. San Fernando Valley OG isn’t as old or crusty as Jamaican and Thai landraces, but it’s produced its fair share of wunderkinds while getting unfairly pushed back in the shadows.

Although I’ve never been able to get my hands on the Pink House’s cut without a medical card, the Health Center’s take is definitely Stoner-worthy, especially at $10 a gram and $30 an eighth out the door. Prices like that should bring SFV OG’s citrus twist and friendly effects back into the limelight.
Smell: Like its OG family, SFV OG has piney, tart notes with a sweet citrus kick at the end, like a subdued lemon balm leaf — less dank and earthy than an OG, but not quite as sour and pungent as Jet Fuel.
