OG Shark is a rare hybrid marijuana strain that is primarily found in Canada. OG Shark is beloved for its high potency, earthy aroma and therapeutic qualities. The effects of this strain are sedating and relaxing. Medical marijuana patients choose OG Shark to relieve symptoms associated with nausea, pain and insomnia. Growers say this strain grows best in a dry, outdoor climate.
SHARK: THE DANK IS APPROACHING, IT’S READY TO STRIKE
Instead of killing sharks, we should be toking Shark and killing time. This strain derives from Super Skunk and Northern Lights genetics. Shark should not be confused with the Great White Shark strain which comes from the “White Family”. It’s a different fish, my friends. Shark is an 80% indica dominant plant, producing 14-16% of THC, and exuding super sweet aromas and flavors.
When grown indoors under 600W lights, Shark can produce up to 500-600g/m² of aromatic buds. The flowering period lasts for 55 days, however, some growers prefer to let Shark mature for an extra week to improve on its effects. It’s quite ironic that this cultivar takes on a name of a monstrous beast when it only reaches 60-130cm in height.
About OG Shark
Everyone loves a good mystery, and OG Shark brings rumors to the table like none other. Found mostly in Canada, where one can assume this strain originates, unknown breeders crossed what we think was Diesel and Blueberry. A strain that brings a nicely balanced set of effects, OG Shark is so good you won’t really care about who made it.
Packing a punch at a high of 25% THC, this strain is best left to the experts. In fact, those who smoke too much of OG Shark will find a wealth of paranoia waiting for them. Nugs tend to be oblong in shape and are a beautiful mix of purple and green tones. Flavors and smells are similar, with berry, spice, skunk, and sweet earth all lingering in the room long after you take a hit.
You’d think that this strain wasn’t a 50/50 hybrid, as its cerebral effects are incredibly strong. Users note they are rocketed into space and feel completely euphoric during the initial stages of their high. Creativity comes easily, and although you may feel focused, OG Shark isn’t exactly stimulating. Instead, a nice and even body relaxation awaits you, allowing you to sink into your couch and become one with the living room.
Great for all-around medical use, OG Shark is prized by those who deal with insomnia for relaxing their mind enough to allow sleep to come in. Stress and depression are melted away during your high, and even minor cases of pain including headaches or issues with nausea can be quelled fairly easily. Overdoing it will not only lead to some harsh mental effects but a strong case of cottonmouth, so use wisely.
Cultivating this plant can be tricky since experts aren’t exactly sure where she came from, but the general consensus is that both indoor and outdoor growth are just fine. Either way lands a pretty generous yield, and a short 8 to 9 week flowering period appeases even the most impatient growers. Many note that OG Shark prefers warm climates, so an outdoor garden may be appropriate based on where you live.
OG Shark is becoming a very popular strain, so popular in fact that people are driving over the border into Canada just to get their hands on some. Select US markets are starting to stock this strain with more regularity, but it’s fair to say that many dispensaries haven’t yet been able to acquire this gift from the north. If you do get a chance to enjoy OG Shark, share some with friends and put on a good movie before you all pass out on the couch.
Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
This potent favorite is hard to find, especially in the United States, but it’s popular throughout Canada, where it was born. The biggest selling point is its impressive THC concentration, with top levels easily exceeding 20%. CBD content is almost zero, so OG Shark shouldn’t be used for seizure disorders or other conditions helped by CBD. The strain is a hybrid, though the precise ratio of sativa to indica seems to be a mystery. OG Shark has a pungent earthy aroma, with tones of blueberry and diesel. The genetics are unknown, but based on its smell and taste it may descend from the original Blueberry and Diesel strains. The high is largely cerebral, suggesting strong sativa genes, with powerfully upbeat euphoria, relaxation, and creativity. It can treat a wide variety of problems: depression, headaches, lack of appetite, nausea, and insomnia. Negative effects likely include cottonmouth and red eyes. This strain is very highly regarded by those who have tried it, but American patients will have a hard time getting their hands on it without going to Canada in person. It sells across that country but is most popular in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, and Nova Scotia. It occasionally sells in Washington State, directly across the border from British Columbia, but it’s scarce there.
