Blue OG’s high creeps up slowly, often taking many minutes after smokers have finished savoring its unique flavor before making itself fully known. Smokers will eventually pick up on a sluggishness in the core and limbs and some heaviness in the eyelids, accompanied by a mounting sense of euphoria. There is some initial mental stimulation that may trigger some free-associative thinking. This cerebral mindset may be good for expansive creative brainstorming as well as for analytical problem-solving. Slowly, the body high intensifies, causing muscular tension to evaporate as deep breathing comes about more freely and easily. This combination of mental and physical effects may lend itself to activities that involve both body and mind like hiking, exercising, and even sex.
Eventually, Blue OG’s indica side fully takes over, conferring full-body relaxation that deepens as the high wears on. In the later stages of the high, smokers may find themselves couchlocked. Because of its taper from productive energy into foggy relaxation, Blue OG is best suited to late afternoon use. This strain’s effects are said to be strong and long-lasting, even for cannabis veterans.
Blue OG may have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its sedative properties can be a balm for aches and pains, whether they’re temporary as due to injury or chronic and caused by conditions like arthritis or lupus. In its early set, Blue OG may help those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on any tasks at hand. Finally, this strain’s even-handed and mellow vibes can temporarily elevate to ease the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Because of its relative lack of cerebral intensity, Blue OG may be a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a lower tolerance for THC.
