Papa’s OG is an indica-heavy strain with roots in the American Southwest. This hybrid was created by Arizona Organix and is a cross between heavy hitters OG Kush and Skywalker OG. It offers users a mellow but somewhat thoughtful high as well as a standout fruity aroma. Papa’s OG has a complex flavor profile that starts off with distinct notes of grape and berry. A closer inspection may also pick up on a cloying sweetness, similar to cotton candy. When these buds are broken apart or ground up, though, they release a much more pungent, skunk-like odor. On the exhale, this heavy smoke blooms with a slightly sour grape taste.
As the high wears on (or as dosage is increased), smokers begin to pick up on Papa’s OG’s physical effects as well. Waves of relaxation begins to roll down the spine and radiate out through the core and limbs. Any linger knots of muscular tension may unravel and any prior worries or preoccupations may begin to float into the background. While such sedative effects are initially mild, they can become progressively stronger, eventually couchlocking smokers and rendering them unwilling or unable to do much more than snack and watch TV. Because of its mostly downbeat vibe, Papa’s OG is recommended for nighttime consumption when it can be fully appreciated.
This relaxing strain can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its early feelings of focus have help those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on one task at a time. Additionally, its calming energy may temporarily soothe the symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. Papa’s OG’s sedative, almost numbing effects may also be helpful in treating physical pain, whether minor or due to chronic conditions like arthritis or lupus. In sufficiently relaxed circumstances, this soporific bud may even be an antidote to insomnia, bringing about a deep and restful sleep. Because it isn’t often associated with obsessive or paranoid thinking, Papa’s OG is a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
