SFV OG, also known as “San Fernando Valley OG,” “San Fernando Valley Kush,” and “San Fernando Valley” is a sativa-dominant hybrid marijuana strain from Cali Connection that is great for patients who need strong pain relief but don’t want to be stuck on the couch. As the name indicates, this OG Kush relative originates from California’s San Fernando Valley. Although their names are barely distinguishable, SFV OG Kush is actually the Afghani-crossed child to SFV OG. Leading with aromatic notes of earthy pine and lemon, its body effects take a little longer to feel than the initial head haziness.
About SFV OG Kush
Ever since the original appearance of OG Kush, many different phenotypes of this strain have surfaced with desirable traits. The cut that was being passed around the San Fernando Valley that would be referred to as SFV OG comes from Swerve of The Cali Connection. As that original cut was clone-only, Swerve would continue to cultivate the strain eventually mixing it with Afghan #1. Afghan #1 is a cross of two landrace Indica strains from Afghanistan. Selecting a good male and female, Swerve proceeded to back-cross his way way to a stable F4 line that he calls SFV OG Kush.
Taking third place in the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup’s Indica category, this strain tends to smell and taste like fruit and skunk. As it can be a harsh smoke, many patients recommend vaporizing SFV OG Kush. This pure Indica strain starts in the head, relieving worries, and slowly washes over the rest of the body, numbing out pain. For most the strain does not start out overtly heavy but as it tapers off, after two to three hours, it may cause users to become weighed down and tired. Some users also get the munchies from this strain.
