The Diablo OG strain 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 commonly thought to be a cross between an OG Kush parent and Diablo, a sativa hybrid created by Canadian seed company Next Generation; the Diablo 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. Others claim that Diablo OG is simply a distinct phenotype of the OG Kush-descended Ghost OG; however, Diablo OG’s effects are generally more cerebral than the couchlock typically associated with Ghost and other OGs.
Diablo OG’s appealing taste and well-rounded high have made it a building block for crossbreeding — Southern California’s Riot Seeds has crossed Diablo OG with powerful indica Sand Storm to produce the rare Diablo OG Kush Storm.Diablo OG 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”, Diablo OG’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 Diablo OG a great choice whether you’re looking to boost your creativity, get things done, or just unwind at home.
