This strain is definitely an OG, paving its fame after claiming 1st Place Prize at the 2014 High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Medical Indica. Larry OG, also known as Lemon Larry, is a potent hybrid strain that was produced by The Cali Connection in Orange County by crossing San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG and the famous OG Kush. With tasty citrus flavours and a strong potency that offers a deeply relaxing and blissful, euphoric high that doesn’t tire you out, there is no wonder why this strain claimed a first place prize!
Larry OG would not have claimed first place for Best Medical Indica if it did not have such a powerful body high; many recognize it for its full-bodied effects which help alleviate temporary or chronic body pain and aches. Its effects are felt relatively quickly as you are hit with a wave of relaxation, happiness and euphoria, allowing your mood to be uplifted almost instantly. This makes Larry OG useful for fast-acting stress relief, and would be beneficial for those busy, stress-filled days, or for those struggling with depression. Despite it being so calming, it actually does not tire you out too to the point of couch-lock. Many users report it is actually energizing so you can still be productive, and at the same time, it is calming enough to help you fall asleep easier. Because it is so deeply physically relaxing, it can assist not just with insomnia but provide relief from nightmares as well. This strain does tend to make users hungry with a case of the munchies, so if you’re dealing with a loss of appetite, Larry OG can help you get it back–just be prepared with some snacks!
While Larry OG is a well-balanced 50% to 50% sativa/indica hybrid, it is considered indica-leaning due to its effects. Its THC count has been tested to be around a low of 21% but it averages at a staggering high of 26% in THC as well as 0.1% CBN and 0.5% CBD, which illustrates the genetic makeup of its medical benefits; such a high THC average may be appealing to medical users who are seeking a cerebral high to pair with full body effects. In comparison, its parent San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG, a sativa-dominant hybrid, averages 17%-22% in THC with 1% CBD and 1% CBN, whereas OG Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid with 19%-24% THC and 1% CBN.
Appearance & Aroma
In terms of appearance, the buds of the Larry OG strain are small and densely packed. In colour, they are a pale, minty green with dark orangey-red pistils. As for its aroma and flavours, as you may have guessed by its alternate name, Lemon Larry, the strain is rather citrusy, specifically emitting smells and flavours that are reminiscent of lemons and oranges. Larry OG also has notes of earthiness and woody pine, allowing for a well-balanced smoke. Upon exhale, the flavours are sweet and tangy and nicely complemented by a smooth, fresh and herbal taste!
