Indica Dominant Marijuana Hybrid Doc's OG

Doc’s OG

This week we’re asking, “what’s up Doc?” and checking out Doc’s OG. This uplifting indica dominant hybrid is a mix of Faceoff OG and Rare Dankness #1 from, you guessed it, Rare Dankness Seed Bank in Colorado. You definitely want to pay the doc a visit when around because this is a rare strain that is relaxing, kills pain, and will leave you smiling. Fans of Ghost OG will be hoppy, err happy, to know that strain is among the genetic ancestors of Doc’s OG. Of the two strains I prefer Doc’s OG to Ghost OG, but both are in my personal top ten.* I generally prefer sativa to indica, but anything that gives me a couchlock feeling without actually locking me down is a winner in my book.

I first met with Doc’s OG over coffee one morning. Wow. The pungent lemon scent threw me off as I was expecting a diesel or earthy scent. The Bugs, I mean buds, were dark green and dense.  The diesel did show up a little in the flavor along with pine and a slightly spicy and sweet taste on the exhale. Doc’s bedside manner was excellent and my face and mind were put at ease by the strain’s first effects. As I smoked and sipped my coffee I found myself snapping and smiling to the music, and then I noticed my usual morning aches and pains weren’t there. Normally my fingers crack constantly, but that morning there was nary a pop. As I sat back and propped up my feet I felt floaty and numb, but not at all couch locked. I was choosing to sit there zoning out and letting my thoughts drift over breakfast, dragons, how much I was enjoying this strain, and all kinds of other things. I was able to canna-tinue my morning with no trouble escaping the couch but the euphoria and floatation stuck with me.

Doc OG’s main terpenes are myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene. We’re already caryo-ing some knowledge about myrcene and limonene so let’s dive into caryophyllene, the peppery terpene. Caryophyllene has a bite to it and a sniff of a strain can have your nose tingling from the spicy smells. Caryophyllene can be found in basil, cloves, hops, rosemary, and other herbs. Are you ready for a bunch of science? Caryophyllene is unique among terpenes because it functions as a cannabinoid and interacts with the endocannabinoid system! It binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors mostly function in areas of the brain while CB2 interact more with organs and the immune system. As a result strains high in caryophyllene tend to have both mind and body effects, and Doc’s OG fits the bill. Binding to the CB2 receptors is what makes caryophyllene great at reducing pain, inflammation, and battling anxiety and depression. I hope I’ve not blinded you with science and all my jar-ganja (sorry, jargon, I’m terrible)!

Joking and Toking:

I keep looking in all the potholes but so far I haven’t found anything to smoke.

*Personal Top Ten changes as I encounter new strains that I blow away, I mean that blow me away.
