“It is widely accepted that the OG Kush strain has a great deal of Pakistani influence in its genetics.”
This particular batch of Pine OG caused much less of a body buzz than other OG Kush phenotypes, like Louis XIII or Tahoe OG, which leads me to believe it may carry a bit more of a Sativa influence. Consider this strain if you are in search of relief from depression, anxiety, or chronic stress, or ADHD, but don’t want to be bogged down with the dreaded “couch-lock” effect.
Not to be confused with the Pine Tar Kush strain, Pine OG is a phenotype of the OG Kush strain that is known for its signature pine-needle aroma and noticeable anxiety relief.
It is not uncommon for some patients to confuse Pine OG with the Pine Tar Kush strain, but they are two different entities completely. The Pine Tar Kush strain is the result of inbreeding the same Pakistani landrace for a few generations.
Strains with this scent tend to have a terpenoid profile high in pinene. It is an aromatic compound that can be found in high concentrations in turpentine. The terpene is considered to help improve memory as well.
In fact, we previously reviewed a batch of the Christmas OG strain that we deemed to be an even more specific phenotype of Pine OG.
“I found that my focus level improved slightly, while any stress and anxiety drifted away.”
Like most varieties of OG Kush, relatively little is known about the Pine OG. Because of this, it is my opinion that it is merely another OG Kush phenotype with a slightly different terpene profile than others.
With that said, it is widely accepted that the OG Kush strain has a great deal of Pakistani influence in its genetics. So, this confusion is certainly understandable and they strains could be similar in a number of ways.
