The Science: While El Chapo OG is considered an Indica-dominant Hybrid, its Sativa side is a force to be reckoned with. Though relaxing and inspirational for most, its collective cannabinoids and terpenes can occasionally over stimulate the thought process for some individuals, causing unneeded apprehension. Great as a 4:20 smoke, El Chapo OG frees the creative mind and unleashes pent-up productivity.
Appearance: Dense and average in size, the El Chapo flower is shielded with THC-laced trichomes. Standing guard over its potent compounds, an Army of peach colored pistils salutes those about to smoke. Short, squat and intoxicating, El Chapo’s OG phenotypes are visually conspicuous.
Consistency: As is generally the case with today’s modern cultivation practices and hybrid strains, El Chapo OG produces some seriously tight flower. When properly cultivated and cured, its nugs are condensed into one rock hard bud. Easily shredded with a decent grinder or scissors, breaking apart El Chapo’s resinous buds by hand should be outlawed.
Scent: Drenched with the smell of citrus, soil, and an earthlike bouquet, El Chapo’s pungent aroma is a dead giveaway in tight quarters. Extraordinarily hard to conceal regardless of the airtight container, its odor will NOT escape the discerning nose.
Taste: F*king incredible! Much like the fugitive this strain is named after, El Chapo OG’s essence is truly killer. Mixing a psychoactive flavor profile of lemons, pine tree sap and earthbound elements – consumers will find this taste overtly captivating.
Effect: Pardoning anxiety and hopelessness, this strain releases individuals from painful joint inflammation and daily bouts of chronic pain. Not for the faint of heart, the euphoria and relaxed state of mind can quickly spiral into an all-out panic session when personal affairs are not in order. Calming yet thought provoking, El Chapo OG is a great 9-to-5 strain.
