Skywalker OG Strain Marijuana
Skywalker OG is a potent Indica-dominant hybrid strain that may just take you to a galaxy far, far away. No Sith genetics here—this plant is a cross between Skywalker OG Kush and has the strong aroma characteristic of kush strains that includes a spicy herbal scent tinged with jet fuel. This strain makes relaxation your only mission, and some users report strong body effects that include mild tingling and numbness. If pain and physical limitations are the issues, Skywalker OG strain is here to rescue you.
About Skywalker OG
A dank and potent strain, Skywalker OG offers a super relaxed high with a nice blend of hybrid effects. An indica-dominant beauty that weighs in at 85/15, it’s the lovechild of Skywalker and OG Kush. Like its namesake, it will bring strong kush attributes and leave you feeling like you’re in the clouds for hours.
Also known as Skywalker OG Kush, this strain boasts a powerful THC count, with peak measurements in the 26% range. Even the lower side, which hovers around 20%, isn’t for beginners, as it offers an intense high that comes on quickly. Spicy herbal and diesel notes best describe Skywalker OG, as it’s a pungent strain that tastes almost exactly as it smells. Nugs are round and a deep olive green, yet are offset by wiry pistils and dense white trichomes.
If you’re hoping for an intergalactic adventure, Skywalker OG will be your co-pilot. An instant high that’s super heavy, you’ll feel properly stoned after a hit or two. Experience your body completely fusing with the couch and leaving you relaxed and happy. A happy high is coupled with intense munchies, so keep the snacks right next to you to avoid having to move. Your head will be in the clouds, yet your body will be tingly and in some cases numb.
Due to its strong physical high, Skywalker OG is perfect for those who suffer from chronic pain. Since you’ll have a hard time analyzing much, it’s perfect for those who suffer from extreme stress, anxiety, and depression. Think about this strain as a mental vacation that ends in getting a good night’s sleep. Individuals who struggle with poor appetite can also find much-needed help from Skywalker OG.
Slightly temperamental, yet worth the effort it takes, this strain has a moderately difficult time being grown at home. That’s offset, however, with plants that are manageable in size, that flower within 7 to 9 weeks, and that produce a rather large yield. While it may not be the best strain for inexperienced growers, those with a green thumb will know just what to do with this beauty to make her thrive.
Whether you’re about to watch a Star Wars marathon in your living room or you just need some quiet time in bed before drifting into a deep and relaxing night of sleep, Skywalker OG should be your go-to when you want to check out from reality.
DESCRIPTION of Skywalker OG Strain
An Indica-dominant hybrid cross of Mazar, Blueberry, and OG Kush, this cultivar comes from a clone originally bred by Darkheart Nursery with genetics from Dutch Passion Seeds out of Amsterdam. Skywalker OG strain has notes of sweet, citrus hops, and a spicy peppery finish. It offers mellow, euphoric effects, and heightened awareness and creativity.
Just as almost anyone you run into will recognize the name Luke Skywalker, any cannabis connoisseur’s face will light up at the mention of the Skywalker OG strain (also commonly known to many as Skywalker OG Kush). One of the most well-known strains in the Golden State, this cannabis indica just might take you to a galaxy far, far away.
Skywalker OG strain is also one of my personal favorite strains, as its mellow qualities are exactly what I’m looking for when I medicate.
Skywalker OG Strain Medical Uses
A cross between Skywalker OG Strain (Blueberry x Mazar) and OG Kush (many review-sites get this wrong and confuse Skywalker OG Strain with Skywalker OG), Skywalker OG relaxing effects have been used by patients to alleviate diverse conditions like chronic pain, insomnia, appetite loss and mild-to-moderate depression.

From personal experience, Skywalker OG strain is excellent at reducing chronic pain from inflammation, surgery, or just plain overworked muscles and joints.
The Skywalker OG strain indica-properties also make it an excellent stress reliever, and I often find myself craving it after a hard day at work. It cuts through anxiety like a light saber (or at least like no other strain I’ve used).
Those seeking a more cerebral experience may want to consider a sativa-dominant strain, but anyone looking for that relaxed, mellow, and stress-free feeling should find Skywalker OG right up their alley.
Skywalker OG Effects of Consumption
Skywalker OG effects are often described as stereotypical of indicas. The high is very body heavy and users (myself included) often report a pleasant tingling or floaty feeling as the effects begin to wash over you (usually after 10-15 minutes).
As a heavy indica, Skywalker OG has been known to leave users “couch-locked” or generally in a lazy and laid-back mood. These qualities make it exclusively a nighttime strain for myself and many users, although there’s certainly nothing wrong with starting your day as Luke Skywalker OG.
Be warned: a day that starts with Skywalker OG, often turns into a day spent on the couch, so don’t expect to get much work done! But if you must work, gear yourself towards the most creative aspect of your job, and focus on it. Otherwise, you’ll find the force too strong to resist, and you’ll turn once again to “Netflix and chill.”
If we’re talking about physical effects of the Skywalker OG strain, the top is absolutely dry mouth and dry eyes. In my case, eyes feel dry within 5-10 minutes, and after about fifteen I often look in the mirror and see the devil himself. My eyes are always blood-shot. My two cents—if consuming Skywalker OG in any form (be it flower, concentrate, crumble), carry eye drops and a beverage with you.
The strain also promotes appetite but not so much as strains like OG Kush or Grandaddy Purps. That said, having snacks on hand is never a bad idea.
Skywalkers OG effects last anywhere from 1.5-3.5 hours, with most users report peaking about 45-60 minutes in, and a total lifespan effect of two hours.
Skywalker OG Kush Effects of Consumption
Dosage with flower is, of course, hard to nail down.
Skywalker OG kush cannabinoid content is on the higher side (Steep Hill Labs reports most strains of Skywalker OG kush come in right around 24% THC, although range between 18-30%) so to start we recommend a dose of between .06 and .15 grams.
Inexperienced users should start with a smaller dose (.08 to .1 grams) and re-dose if the desired level of relief isn’t reached. Make sure to wait at least 15-20 minutes before re-dosing, as Skywalker OG kush effects can take a bit to kick in.
When over consumed, users report nausea, and (paradoxically) anxiety, so you should always err on the side of caution and take multiple smaller doses rather than one large one.
I always recommend using a vaporizer when medicating, as the potential health benefits are huge compared to smoking. But Skywalker OG kush is also quite a smooth strain to smoke; the smoke is thick and dense while remaining pleasant and smooth.
Appearance, Taste & Smell
Visually, Skywalker OG strain generally embodies the archetypal cannabis indica. Dense, round or conical bright green nugs with an abundance of burnt orange hairs are crusted in a thick layer of trichomes (making it a popular choice for concentrates). The nugs tend to be stickier and very aromatic.
Skywalker OG strain smell is very Earthy, with a hint of citrus and pungent fuel coming through the stereotypical “dank” smell people generally associate with cannabis.
When smoked, the flavor is earthy and sweet on the inhale, with more pungent, jet fuel strain like flavors reminiscent of Chemdawg or Sour Diesel peeking through on the exhale.
When vaped, it expresses a similar flavor profile, although at lower temperatures hints of citrus and black licorice are also present, especially on the inhale.
