Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 15% – 22%
Dizzy OG is a pretty rare evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain with unknown parentage, although it is known to be a member of the OG Kush family. This tasty bud took home 2nd Place for Best Medicinal Hybrid at the 2016 SoCal Cannabis Cup thanks to its painkilling effects and powerful 15-22% THC level. And after just a few hits of this heavy-hitter, you’ll soon learn where it gets its name. Dizzy OG hits you square between the eyes as soon as you exhale with a euphoric rush, launching your mind into pure hazy bliss and leaving you feeling super giggly and chatty. Your energy levels will grow, feeding this dizzying state of happiness, before a tingly body buzz will take over and bring you back down. Even with its physical effects, you won’t be sedated or sleepy in the slightest. Thanks to these hard-hitting effects, Dizzy OG is recommended for treating cramps, stress, depression, and insomnia. It should be avoided if you suffer from anxiety in the slightest. Dizzy OG buds have large piecey minty green nugs with bright orange hairs and rich amber colored crystal trichomes. This bud is said to have a taste of sweet fruits with a sour pungent pine exhale. The aroma is of sour pine and pungent earth with just a touch of rotting fruit.
Dizzy OG is marked by medium-sized flowers that have a somewhat asymmetrical shape once trimmed. These buds adhere in a ragged structure, more typical of sativa varieties.The leaves are a vibrant shade of lime green and are threaded through with dark, rust-colored hairs (which are actually pistils, structures intended to catch pollen from flowering male plants). A blanket of amber-colored trichomes covers the inner and outer surfaces, giving these flowers a slightly yellowish sheen.
Properly cured, Dizzy OG’s flowers carry the dank, woodsy aroma you might expect of a strain in the OG family. On closer inspection, though, they also have a sweet and slightly fruity kick. Tearing the nugs apart yields some surprisingly sour notes. When combusted, this strain burns with a thick smoke that may sting the palate and sinuses with its acrid, kushy odor. However harsh, though, this smoke has a pleasantly fruity and piney taste on the exhale.
Dizzy OG offers a creeper of a high, taking several minutes after consumers have finished toking before revealing itself. Eventually, the strain’s effects manifest as a throb around the eyes and temples. This sensation is accompanied by a burst of energy and, for some, an ineffable feeling of euphoria. Smokers — particularly those with a lower THC tolerance — may feel an uptick in fast-paced cerebral thinking. In the right set and setting, users can maintain a lucid mindset and carry on conversations, allowing them to accomplish work ranging from mundane tasks like doing the dishes to more complicated, analytical jobs. As the high wears on, a physical tingle emerges, which serves to relax smokers and to take the edge off of any initial sativa effects. In social situations, this gradual comedown lends itself to camaraderie and even giggles among like-minded friends. At higher doses, the threat of couchlock begins to surface, soon rendering users happily immobile. Dizzy OG is best enjoyed at night; if consumed during the day, it’s liable to pave the way for a very unproductive afternoon.
This even-tempered strain may also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. In large enough amounts, it can work against insomnia, lulling users into a deep, fulfilling sleep. It can also relieve aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as from an injury, or chronic, as from conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. Some anti-inflammatory effects can also soothe everyday irritations like headaches and nausea. Psychologically, Dizzy OG’s tendency to elevate mood can provide temporary relief from mild to moderate stress and depression. Although its onset comes with some mental stimulation, it does not often bring about paranoia — as such, this strain may be a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Neither Dizzy Wright nor any licensed breeders have made seeds of Dizzy OG available for sale online. As such, prospective growers will need to obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” There is little information available on specific best practices for growing this strain. We do know, however, that like many hybrids, it can be grown indoors or outdoors in semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climates. We also know that its predecessor strain OG Kush flowers within a long 9 weeks when grown indoors.
Somewhat difficult to come by, Dizzy OG is worth picking up for its middle-of-the-road effects. It’s a welcome additions to the stash boxes of indica and sativa lovers alike.

How to Grow Dizzy OG?
Little information is known in the cultivation of Dizzy OG.

The flowering time comes after 8 to 9 weeks, with a yield of 12 to 14 ounces of buds per plant. A bonus tip, extending the blossoming stage, will produce better yields.
