About Diablo OG
The devil went down to Mexico, harvested some fruit, and came back with a spicy new name. Diablo OG has sweet notes from its Grapefruit and Blueberry parents, as well as a spicy aftertaste inherited from a South African Sativa. It is an indica though, and its linalool, caryophyllene, and myrcene will leave you “feliz y relajado.”
Not as sinister as its name implies, Diablo OG is a sativa-dominant hybrid that confers relaxation and mental stimulation. Different phenotypes of this strain have tested at between 15% and 20% THC; as a result, effects are mild to moderate but can become more potent as dosage is increased.
There is some ambiguity around this strain’s parentage. It is a cross between an OG Kush parent and Diablo, a sativa hybrid created by Canadian seed company Next Generation; the parent strain (which won the long-running British Columbia Harvest Cup in 2002) is itself a cross between flavorful Blueberry, Grapefruit, and South African landrace strains, giving it the complex fruity flavor that is so evident in Diablo OG.
The creation of Diablo OG is often credited to Los Angeles-based dispensary Reseda Discount Caregivers. Reseda is also known for signature OG , a potent indica-dominant strain that is beneficial for insomnia relief.
When properly cured, healthy buds of Diablo OG are large and dark green. Some phenotypes show traces of purple, the result of high amounts of anthocyanin compounds in the leaves that turn purple when exposed to cold air. Brown to dark orange pistils are threaded through the dense Diablo OG buds.
This breed is popular in California but is relatively difficult to find outside the West Coast. Its moderate THC content makes it a suitable strain for novice smokers, although it’s potent enough to keep cannabis enthusiasts afloat. Although its purple varieties have some “bag appeal”, It’s real standout characteristic is its floral yet skunky smell and taste. A clear and mobile head high is matched by a mild but refreshing body high that makes the breed a great choice whether you’re looking to boost your creativity, get things done, or just unwind at home.
