Empire OG, described as the perfect strain by I Read Culture’s cannabis critics in 2012, is an indica dominant hybrid (80% indica/20% sativa) strain that boasts an insanely intense 25-30% THC. This powerful bud is a cross between Candy Cush X OG Kush and is recommended for use at night or days when you’re planning on staying at home. Couch lock, happy euphoric feelings, and a peaceful calm are all positive effects of this strain, and are used to treat patients with chronic pain from migraines, multiple sclerosis, and cancer. It is a blend of sweet and spicy tastes with a sweet smell and a smooth, clean high with an overall feeling of well-being and ease. Because of its indica dominance, its suggested that you don’t smoke Empire OG if you suffer from insomnia or other sleep conditions, as you will experience cerebral stimulation. The appearance of the Empire OG bud is a dense, pale green bud caked in sticky resin and flecked with golden hairs.
