Gastown OG Kush Indica Dominant Hybrid
This Gastown OG strain is a descendant of the most popular cannabis strain in the USA, OG Kush. This 75% indica dominant hybrid has earned its stripes over many generations of cross-breeding to achieve perfection. For instance, OG Kush is a Tripple Crown Winner, having won all three of The Highlife Cup, The Medical Cannabis Cup and The Spannabis Cup awards. OG Kush’s lineage is ChemDawg crossed with a Lemon Thai and Hindu Kush cross. As a result, you get many of those original flavours in Gastown OG. The potent body buzz Indica fans love brings along a heady punch of Sativa phenotypes. Above all, the Gastown OG high is overwhelmingly creative, uplifting and extremely sociable.
Many years of perfecting this indica dominant hybrid have produced a large sticky bud. It has delicious-smelling terpenes set among amber trichomes. In addition, these trichomes generously coat the entire flower. Breaking up Gastown OG can be tough because the buds are very densely packed. A good metal grinder is recommended to release this strain’s full cannabinoid potential. Gastown OG Kush’s dark green leaves are wrapped up in bright orange pistils, each glistening in gorgeous crystals.

What is a Hybrid Strain?
A Hybrid strain refers to any combination of Sativa or Indica Strains. These strains offer more balanced Cannabis effects. In addition, they make it much easier for Cannabis users to customize their experience. As a result, they appeal to a much wider spectrum of Cannabis users. By combining the invigorating and energizing effects of a Sativa with the pain relieving and muscle relaxing effects of an Indica, these strains offer the best of both worlds.
The Science of it all
Although mother nature has done most of the work for us, modern-day strains are mostly a design project. The cross-breeding of any plant species involves the same basic processes, and Cannabis is no exception. For instance, to crossbreed plant strains, female plants must receive pollen from their male counterparts. Out in the wild, this happens naturally. However, it usually only occurs between the same strains of Cannabis.
In creating new and exciting Hybrids, growers carefully select their cross strains and breed them in a controlled environment. They can dictate which traits from each strain will end up combined in the final product. As a result, the seeds from these plants will then become First Generation Hybrids.
Choosing a Hybrid Strain
Indica dominant like the Gastown OG, Sativa dominant, or true Hybrid, there are unlimited possibilities and combinations to chose from. So how are you supposed to know which strain is right for you? Consider what you’re using Cannabis for.
If you need pain relief but aren’t looking for heavy sedation, Sativa dominant Hybrids might be right for you. If you’re looking to relax without the added psychoactive effects, try using an Indica dominant strain. It is important to remember that not all strains affect all users the same way.
When choosing a Hybrid strain, look for the balance that is right for your individual Cannabis needs. Above all, we always recommend that you start low and go slow. In other words, start with a small dosage and increase slowly as needed until you find the balance that is right for your needs.
