I’ve smoked White Widow, Northern Lights, G13 and all of them are amazing in their own ways. White Widow is a classic, Northern Lights tastes amazing and G13 has arguably one of the most mellow highs I have ever experienced. Don’t get me wrong, I love some of those old school strains, but sometimes, as a seasoned stoner who has built up a high tolerance after years of abusing the bong, I just need a little more…
A few years back a friend of mine grew some Godfather OG weed and boy, to say this was ‘a little more’ would be a crime. Godfather OG truly knocked my socks off, it felt like that very first high you have as a teenager, it was as though it had given me back my stoner virginity and my tolerance was back to base level. If that wasn’t enough, that initial hit that usually wears off pretty quickly just seemed to last four hours. That may have been because we smoked an enormous king skin blunt each, but wow was I high.
Godfather OG strain info and history
Godfather OG is a hybrid cross created by breeding Granddaddy Purple, OG Kush, and Cherry Pie. The strain was first introduced in California in 2013, and it quickly gained a reputation for its potency and incredible highs.
Godfather OG stayed out of the mainstream for a good few years, only smoked by those in the know. But things quickly changed in 2017 when it was named the high times strongest strain of the year, measuring a whopping 34% THC. Since then, Godfather OG has became known as one of the most potent strains you can get your hands on and has been flying off the top shelves of dispensaries around the world.
Better yet, until very recently it has remained a strain that was only available in dispensaries, however, the long awaited Godfather OG seeds are now available as MSC seed bank for you to grow your very own Godfather OG weed at home.
Is Godfather OG strain indica or Sativa?
Godfather OG is an indica leaning hybrid. The indica effects become obvious when you smoke it and feel the heavily sedated high.
Does Godfather OG contain CBD?
Known for its high THC content, Godfather OG doesn’t contain much CBD at all. For those of you that don’t know, CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in cannabis and is known for giving its therapeutic effects, such as reducing inflammation, anxiety, and pain. If what you are looking for is pain relief, Godfather OG containing almost no CBD may not be the obvious choice, but the incredibly high THC levels will almost knock you unconscious.
Growing Godfather OG: From Pruning to Pounds with Topping and SCROG
Picture it: a small, inconspicuous grow tent tucked away in the corner of your basement. But don’t be fooled by its humble appearance, because inside that tent is where the magic happens. The Godfather OG magic, that is. With the right setup, you too can become a cannabis don with a bounty of dank buds to call your own.
First, you’ll need the right equipment. I used a Mars Hydro light, which isn’t is a must-have but it is a sure fire way to get good results without killing the planet. For anyone serious about growing Godfather OG this light is like the Tony Soprano of grow lights – powerful, efficient, and always in control. It provides just the right amount of light for your plants to thrive, without burning them or wasting energy.
Secondly, you’ll need to give it the proper training that it needs, such as topping and SCROG. Let’s go back to the basics for a bit. Topping is a technique that involves cutting off the top of the main stem to encourage the plant to grow more branches. This results in a bushier, more productive plant. SCROG, on the other hand, involves training the branches to grow horizontally using a screen or net, which allows for better light penetration and more even bud development.
Now, let’s put these techniques to use with your Godfather OG plants. Start by topping your plants when they are young, cutting off the top of the main stem just above the third or fourth set of leaves. This will encourage the plant to grow more branches, which you can then train to grow horizontally using a SCROG net. However, it’s important to stop LST training a few weeks before the flowering stage begins. This will give your plants plenty of time to recover and prepare to begin producing those nice dense nugs.
What nutrients are best for Godfather during veg?
This is where your plants will really start to take off and grow into the luscious buds you’ve been dreaming of. But before you get too excited, let’s go over a few key things to keep in mind during this stage.
During the vegetative stage, your Godfather OG plants will need a nutrient-rich diet to fuel their growth. A good ratio to follow is around 3:1:2 of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, respectively. This will provide the necessary nutrients for healthy vegetative growth, without overloading your plants with too much nitrogen.
When does the flowering stage begin?
When it’s time to flip your lights to 12/12, depends on your personal preferences and growing conditions. However, a good rule of thumb is to start flipping your lights when your plants have reached about half of the desired height. This will ensure that your plants have enough time to flower and produce a good yield, without becoming too tall and difficult to manage.
As your Godfather OG plants start to mature, you’ll notice the distinct aroma of the strain filling the air. This is a good sign – it means you’re on your way to a bountiful harvest. In just a 8-10 short weeks, you’ll be the proud owner of some of the stickiest, most potent buds you’ve ever laid your eyes on.
The flowering stage and harvesting for peak potency
This is where your hard work really pays off, as your plants start to produce the beautiful, sticky buds you’ve been dreaming of. But before you start celebrating too much, let’s go over a few tips for ensuring a successful harvest.
Tips for Flowering
During the flowering stage, your Godfather OG plants will need a different nutrient ratio than during the vegetative stage. Aim for a ratio of around 1:3:2 of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, respectively, to promote healthy bud development. Also, make sure to keep a close eye on your plants’ water and nutrient intake, as they will need more during this stage.
Harvesting at Peak Potency
Harvesting your Godfather OG at the right time is crucial for achieving maximum potency and flavor. To determine when your buds are ready, look for the pistils to turn from white to orange or brown, and use a magnifying glass to check the trichomes for a milky or amber color. Once you’ve determined that your buds are at peak potency, it’s time to harvest.
But be warned – with great power comes great responsibility. To come back to the main focus of the article, how strong is Godfather OG, the answer is very strong! The Godfather OG strain is certainly not for the faint of heart. Its high THC content can knock you on your backside if you’re not careful. So, enjoy your harvest responsibly and share the love with your fellow cannabis enthusiasts.
