About Mega Wellness OG
Mega Wellness OG (sometimes simply known as Wellness OG) is a distinct, Sativa-leaning phenotype of the famed OG Kush. Created by the San Fernando Valley-based Nameless Genetics, this strain impresses with a full-bodied aroma and hard-hitting cerebral effects. Mega Wellness OG is considered strong even for experienced cannabis consumers — in fact, its potency earned it prizes for Best Concentrate and Best Hybrid Flower in the 2015 Southern California High Times Cannabis Cup. Mega Wellness OG’s THC level has been reported at between 18% and a staggering 33%.
At first glance, the flowers of Mega Wellness OG are not particularly impressive. They are small and cling together in popcorn-like clusters. The tightly coiling leaves are densely packed in an indica-typical bud structure. Leaves themselves are olive green and are shot through with brown to orange pistils. Trichome production is where this strain really leads the pack, though — the inner and outer surfaces of the flowers are sprinkled with resinous secretions. Despite their tiny size, these buds can be very difficult to break up without the aid of a grinder.
When properly cured, Mega Wellness OG’s buds burst with a robust OG aroma. A hashy, incense-like odor predominates and is accented with astringent notes of diesel. Some sharp citrus also pokes through, lending a slightly fruity character. Breaking open or grinding the buds yields the rich and woodsy scent of pine. When combusted, Mega Wellness OG burns with a smooth and creamy smoke that tastes sweet on the exhale; the overall impression is that of pine sap. This is considered a particularly pungent smoke — those looking to keep their consumption discreet should take any necessary precautions.
The high from Mega Wellness OG takes effect very quickly, launching users into a deep and thoughtful headspace. This mental high is characterized by sharpened perception and freely associative thought. External stimuli and abstract concepts may seem more significant than when the smoker is sober. This strong but manageable head high can be useful for fostering creative thinking or for finding unconventional solutions to entrenched problems. Those looking to take advantage of this burst of energy should act quickly, though. As the high wears on or as the dosage are increased, Mega Wellness’ indica sidekicks, weighing down limbs and causing eyelids to droop. Luckily, many users report that even after they’re rendered immobile, their minds remain active and lucid. Mega Wellness OG can set the stage for a small gathering of familiar friends; alternatively, it can allow users to withdraw from their surroundings and spend some valuable time alone. This strain is most appropriate for the afternoon to early evening when its decrescendo from active thoughtfulness to passive relaxation can be most enjoyed.
Mega Wellness OG can also have various uses for medical cannabis patients. It’s a long-lasting feeling of focus that can help those with attention deficit disorders to maintain productive concentration. The sedative effects on the strain’s backend can also soothe deep-seated aches and pains, whether they’re related to injury or disease. Meanwhile, anti-inflammatory properties may take care of everyday irritations like headaches or nausea. In high enough doses, Mega Wellness OG can also work against insomnia, lulling users into a deep and restful sleep. Because its onset may lead to a feeling of “mind race” in certain settings, this strain may not be the best choice for those who are prone to panic and anxiety.
Unfortunately, Nameless Seeds hasn’t yet made seeds of Mega Wellness OG available for sale online. As such, prospective growers must obtain clippings from mature plants in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” Although there is little information available on best practices for the cultivation of Mega Wellness OG, we know that, like many hybrids, it can be grown in closely regulated indoor conditions or outdoors in warm, semi-humid climates. Additionally, this bud’s pungency suggests that indoor growers should invest in odor control measures like carbon air filters or exhaust fans, particularly if they’d like to remain under the radar.
Popular near its origin point in Southern California, Mega Wellness OG may be difficult to locate elsewhere. Fans of hybrids should give this potent, aromatic strain a spin. If you break it out among friends, bring enough to share, as its unique lemony funk is sure to turn some heads.
