Emerald Triangle Seeds Provide A Hybrid Full Of Taste
This 50/50 hybrid comes from interesting genetics. It was bred by Emerald Triangle Seeds – they’re responsible for Lemon Diesel too. This time they started by crossing Cherry Thai with some Afghani (Indica). They did this to increase the density/yield of the Cherry Thai, since it is a Sativa.
Once successful, they backcrossed it with the original Cherry Thai mother to bring out the heady, uplifting high. Finally, Emerald Triangle crossed it with their Lost Coast OG in order to increase potency.
“Due to its pain-relieving qualities and reputation for potency, Lost Coast OG is one of the most sought after medicinal strains in California.”
This isn’t the first time I’ve come across a top-notch strain with Lost Coast OG in its genetics: Emerald Triangle Seeds used it when breeding their Lemon Dieselstrain, which placed in the top ten at the 2010 Emerald Cup. It’s considered to be a 60/40 Indica-dominant strain. To get Lost Coast OG they crossed the offspring of (Pakistani Kush x Lemon Thai) with Chemdawg #4.
Cherry OG Is A Quality, Flavorful Strain
When I examined this strain, the thing that caught my attention at first was the smell. Its diesel scent with cherry overtones was something unlike anything I’ve come across before. The cherry taste really stood out when I rolled it in a joint.
The genetics boast two strains that are incredibly flavorful. Emerald Triangle Seeds says the strain will have 3 major variations; I could identify two predominant aromas in this specific cut. The cherry was the most noticeable at first, but I soon recognized a strong diesel scent. This was likely due to the Chemdawg in the genetics of Lost Coast OG.
The flowers were a dark, lush green and covered in orange hairs. They had a tight and compact bud structure that made it look like the typical OG flower. This definitely carried over in terms of its effects.
The Cherry OG strain gave me a euphoric feeling and reduced my anxiety dramatically. The pain relief from the Lost Coast OGtruly stood out this strain. It eventually made me tired, so I probably wouldn’t medicate with this early in the day.
