Ohio Medical Marijuana Strain Review:
True OG by
Woodward Fine Cannabis
How OG Do You Want To Get?
Review & Photos by: Randy Shaffer
Packaging: First Impressions
True OG is cultivated by Fire Rock Ltd. out of Akron, Ohio, and sold under the brand, Woodward Fine Cannabis. If you’ve read any of our Woodward Fine Cannabis reviews, like Sunset Sherbert, you know what you’re in store for in terms of packaging. Woodward has been one of the most consistent cultivators on the Ohio market. Their recyclable plastic bottles, and pleasing visual design, continue to be among the best in the Buckeye State. This 5.66 gram bottle of True OG is no different.
Cannabis Look: Out of the Bottle
My 5.66 gram bottle of True OG contained some nice classic indica nugs, with a wider design and swollen calyx structures. Oranges and greens mostly hide beneath a sticky layer of trichomes — many of which lean more creamy than pure snow white.
The buds themselves are quite dense and sticky to the touch, perfectly cured and ready to be ground. This strain does grind a bit sticky, so be warned. Patients with pain in their hands or fingers may want to grind small amounts, or ask a caretaker for assistance.
Smell Before Vaping
The aroma of True OG is straight fire, striking a nice balance between sweet citrus notes and enticing pine terpenes. There’s a strong lemon bite to the aroma followed by a sweeter citrus through-thread, almost like cutting into a fresh orange. Once ground, these enticing aromas open up, combining into a potent mixture of lemony pine zest. Be warned, this aroma can fill a room pretty easily, so you might want to light a candle or some incense if you live in an apartment complex or duplex.
The Taste Test
I vaped this medical cannabis with an Arizer ExtremeQ vaporizer. I like to start my first bag at a lower temperature to open the terpenes, and work up to a higher temp to vaporize the cannabinoids.
Once vaped, True OG takes on a much different life, leaning harder on the strain’s potent pine notes. There’s also a mild bite with this one, even from the first hit, that gets a little stronger the longer you vape this strain. I was surprised by True OG’s gassy diesel flavor as well as I didn’t detect much diesel when examining this strain.
Missing in action are the sweeter citrus accents noted in the aroma. Though there’s a slight lemon aftertaste, it’s just not very prominent when vaped. Overall, I enjoyed how the different terpenes interacted with this strain, but I was hoping for a slightly sweeter experience. That said, the pine and diesel mix rather well together, providing a classic OG taste.
Medicinal Benefits and Side Effects I Noted
Note: The medicinal benefits noted in this strain profile are for educational purposes only, and are not a substitute for the advice of a medical practitioner or licensed budtender.
True OG by Woodward Fine Cannabis (Fire Rock in Akron) is an indica strain. The bottle I purchased contained cannabis with 25.30% THC and 0.00% CBD.
This strain was recommended for its relaxation effects, as well as gastrointestinal relief, and anti-inflammation properties. This strain was also recommended for sleep.
Like most Woodward strains, True OG excels at delivering not only a profoundly tasty flower, but a medicinally balanced experience as well.
This strain took a moment to really hit, but about ten minutes after vaping my first bag, I felt a soothing euphoria wash over my eyes and temples. Moments later, I fell into a gentle relaxed state, melting into my couch.
Stomach issues I had been suffering from calmed during my experience, with a pulsating sensation throughout my body that practically warmed my insides like a hot tea.
Pain and inflammation were greatly reduced, allowing me to move more easily. Used in combination with something like a High THC Tincture or Cannabis-Infused Honey proved quite a powerful combination for stress relief and sleep as well.
Final Thoughts on True OG
True OG is another excellent strain from the folks at Woodward Fine Cannabis. This strain is very potent, surprisingly relaxing and quite flavorful. If you’re a fan of this cultivator, or indicas in general, you won’t want to miss out on this strain.
Please be aware: Percentages of THC, CBD and terpene profiles can vary greatly between cannabis harvests. This means that some strains profiled at 420oh.io will contain higher, exact or lower percentages of active chemical compounds when purchased at Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries during different harvest seasons.
