STRAIN OF THE WEEK: SKYWALKER OG

Posted on

Skywalker OG

Skywalker OG is probably the funnest strain to tell people that you have. It’s a cross between OG Kush and Skywalker, and with the right piece it hits like a dream. This fantastic hybrid has a really interesting look to it. It’s not really exotic, but it’s pretty and has a great distinctive smell. It won’t make you melt into your favorite lazy boy, but on the other hand you’re not really going to feel like going to do jumping jacks anywhere.

My favorite way to smoke Skywalker OG is to solar puff it. If you’ve never done it, solar puffing is just going outside in nature, finding a super sweet spot with lots of nature, and using a magnifying glass to direct the sun to light the bud. It doesn’t take as long as it sounds, and it’s a really cool thing to do. Why do this is Skywalker OG? No reason really, it’s just the first bud I’ve ever done it with so it’s pretty much a case of nostalgia. That being said though the buzz that Skywalker OG hands down meshes really well with just hanging out in nature. I’ve always considered this good “catching up” high. It really does make for great conversation.  If solar puffing isn’t an option than I would say bring a bubbler along, hopefully something with a keg or showerhead diffuser like this BLAZE piece.

That piece has BOTH, yes BOTH, so you are guaranteed a  super smooth hit. Why does that matter with Skywalker OG? Wellll my only knock on this bud is the rip can be a bit harsh at times. I don’t mean overwhelmingly terrible or anything, I’m just saying when you have a piece like the blaze bubbler to diffuse twice then you can really take a suuuuper deep rip and enjoy the exhale. Skywalker OG in vapes isn’t really my favorite, if I had to vote, I would stick with a bubbler 100% of the time.

As for the taste, this really gets interesting when you ask certain people. Sometimes when you get a strain that people aren’t too familiar with then they remember the taste differently. True Skywalker OG is going to be a heavier kush taste. A smoker should taste some of that bubble gum and violet/cherry taste as well on the tail end. Some people will tell you that it kind of smells like bubble gum kush or even a little bit like grapefruit sometimes. It’s definitely one of those strains that you say “oh okay, I’ll remember that from now on.” Not only because of the name but the taste and smell are pretty legit.

You’ll have Skywalker OG recommended for you if you need anything that will make you relax and just mellow out. It’s a perfect bud for watching sunsets, or just getting into that ‘after work’ mode when you just need to take a load off. Also, if you have a Netfilx and chill session Skywalker OG would be a great fit for the occasion. Just make sure that you have some ice cream or boat loads of popcorn, as most people get killer munchies from this strain.

Skywalker OG, is both fun to say, and awesome to smoke. Definitely recommend hitting it with something like a 2 diffuser bubbler piece, or taking a stroll into the sun and using nature to do the work. For all of those people who are anal about not mixing butane into your hits then solar puffing is a perfect remedy for this strain vs. vaping. If you check out the Skywalker OG definitely let us know how it was, and what you smoked it out of. I recently found this bud in Greenville, NC, the hometown of the current Cloud 9 Goddess Amber, so we had to review it. Check out our other strain reviews, check us out on social media, and happy smoking!
