Deadhead OG is a classic West Coast strain that was created by Skunk VA of Cali Connection Seeds. Produced by crossing two legendary and potent strains, Chemdawg 91 and SFV OG Kush. Its name is derived from the immediate and intense effects when smoked. This strain is known for its intensely stimulating cerebral high while still providing a feeling of relaxation throughout the body. This strain is definitely for more seasoned cannabis veterans and not for beginners.
As mentioned before, this strain is not meant for beginners. THC levels of Deadhead OG average at a high 20% but can reach up to 25%. Upon smoking, a head rush will occur immediately.
