Octane og carries between 15% and 20% THC.
Octane OG Kush Strain boasts large flowers that range in shape from spherical clusters to tapered spades. The flowers have somewhat fluffy, wispy leaves that can be tugged off of their central stems. The leaves themselves are forest green and are threaded through with a preponderance of orange hairs (which are actually pistils, intended to catch pollen from male plants). Certain phenotypes of this strain are also distinguished by shades of purple; these vibrant colors are caused by a high genetic concentration of anthocyanins — pigments like chlorophyll that turn plants different hues of blue and purple when stimulated by cold temperatures. Parent strain White Widow appears to have passed on its predisposition for resin production, as Octane OG’s colorful flowers are covered in sticky white trichomes. Octane OG’s aroma is where its appeal really becomes evident. The cured flowers have a sweet and herbal scent, strikingly similar to the peppermint smell of Octane OGs. When buds are ground up or combusted, they yield a more spicy scent, similar to the earthy incense bouquet of grandparent strain Afghani. Notably, Octane OG Kush Strain is lacking in any grape-like smell or taste — this is because the same pigments that turn its leaves purple do not have a corresponding effect on its taste.
