Determining the strain of medical marijuana that will benefit you the most requires some knowledge in the attributes and quality of the multiple types available. One of the most highly talked about medical marijuana strains is the Tahoe OG hybrid. Genetically it is traced back to the original OG Kush, a phenotype known for it’s consistency and potency. The species is 60 percent Sativa and 40 percent Indica strain, with it’s lineage from OG Kush and SFV OG.

One of the reasons the Tahoe OG strain is getting such rave reviews is because of the high THC content and all the benefits associated with it. In just two or three minutes the effects from smoking will begin to take effect. Chronic pain users, such as patients suffering from Fibromyalgia, are able to take one or two tokes and enjoy pain-free activity for hours. Those who are coping with stress and anxiety are now able to approach daunting tasks in a relaxed frame of mind.

If you suffer from extreme pain or nausea and are a chronic user, Tahoe OG can remove that pain and stimulate your appetite without resigning you to sitting on the couch all day. However, it is typically described as giving a full-body experience high and most often not recommended for daytime use except for in small amounts. Due to the heavy body sensation and extreme relaxation effects, Tahoe OG is also one of the top picks for insomniacs. As with all medications, personal experiences will vary depending on severity of ailments, duration of usage, and tolerance build up.


  • Properly cultivated buds are tight and compact, bright green in color with red-orange trichomes, and heavily crystallized.

Overall, Tahoe OG would be a great choice for patients with multiple chronic illnesses and for those who do not need to be very active during it’s use. If you have an extremely high tolerance and find that your usual medicine is not quite as effective, this is a strain you should definitely evaluate.
