Face Off OG is an Indica dominant hybrid that was originally developed by Archive Seed Bank. Originating from a few seeds that were gifted to Fletcher, founder of Archive Seed Bank from a batch of unknown OG Kush that was circulating through Southern California’s underground cannabis scene back in the late 1990s. Not recommended for the faint-hearted, Face Off OG is said to be named due to her strong face-melting effect, reminiscent of the Nicholas Cage and John Travolta movie of the same name.
TASTE & SMELL –
Face Off OG buds have that familiar OG Kush aroma, mainly earthy, piney and citrusy with additional notes of skunk and diesel. Her smoke has a mildly sweet citrus taste with earthy and piney overtones.
Regarding effects, Face Off OG’s high is best described as intense and heavy-hitting with an initial soaring, spacey head rush that’s accompanied by heavy full-body sedation. Her effects are fast-acting, long-lasting and can induce a euphoric state of relaxation with a mentally cloudy head high that leaves one super lazy and sleepy.
MEDICAL USES –
Medically, Face Off OG narcotic qualities can be beneficial for relieving pain, offering a natural alternative to over-the-counter prescription drugs. She has also known to be helpful for those suffering from sleeping disorders.
GROW INFO –
This strain is considered a moderately difficult strain to cultivate. She grows medium-height and produces typical OG shaped buds that are tight, dense and extremely resinous, ideal for those who wish to extract oil or make hashish. She is receptive to strategic defoliation, opening up the plant to make sure all bud sites are well drenched in light. Face Off OG has an indoor flowering cycle ranging from eight to nine weeks and is ready for harvest by mid-October when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere.
