Platinum Kush is an indica-dominant strain that takes on a platinum-silver shade due to its thick coat of crystal resin. With purple hues and bright orange hairs, its buds grow dense with a sweet fruity and hashy aroma. Its high THC content with trace levels of CBD results in a buzz that has been described as strongly cerebral and body-numbing. Some of Buds On Wheels OC patients swear by this strain (you know who you are).
Although the genetics are vague and unconfirmed from the source, it is believed that the Platinum OG strain stems from the combination of Master Kush, OG Kush, and an unknown third strain — some believe the Purps strain. None the less, this is a cannabis strain you will want to try.
This genetic mix up (mostly strains of Kush origin) makes the Platinum OG strain ridiculously heavy, and usually boasts lab-test results with THC levels over 20%. However, because Master Kush has some Skunk #1 in its genetics, it would be incorrect to classify the Platinum OG Strain as a 100% Indica strain when we know there is some Sativa hidden deep in its lineage. This is a good thing, because it helps provide a calm spaciness/fogginess of the mind, that really helps manage and end migraines.
Any pent up stress or feeling of anxiety seem to wash away within 30 minutes of using the Platinum OG medical marijuana strain, and is followed by a deep wave of psychological relief that begins in the mind and ends with you laying down somewhere comfortable. The Indica in its genetics and high THC percentage makes Platinum OG a good strain for boosting appetite, as well as easing upset stomachs.
