Venom OG is an indica-leaning strain with a
high that’s as potent -- but not nearly as menacing -- as its name.
Created by Rare Dankness, the prolific breeders who have also developed Ghost Train Haze, Venom OG is a cross between their proprietary Rare Dankness #1
and Poison OG. The strain offers mostly relaxing sedative effects that
are therapeutic enough to soothe pain and anxiety yet stimulating enough
to enjoy recreationally. Venom OG’s psychoactivity has been measured at
between 11% and a whopping 27%.
strain’s buds range in size from small to medium and cling together in
elongated, almost cylindrical shapes. They have the unmistakable
structure of other indica-dominant varieties, with leaves curled tightly
inward, forming a solid and compact flower. The leaves themselves are a
bright spring green and are twisted through with vibrant orange hairs
(which are actually pistils, botanical structure meant to catch pollen
from fertilizing male plants). A carpet of translucent white trichomes
covers the inner and outer surfaces of these nuggets, making them very
difficult to break up by hand.
compact flowers emit an aroma with dominant notes of skunk and damp
earth. Hanging out under this musk is a hint of fresh pine. Grinding up
or breaking apart the buds, meanwhile, yields some diesel fumes,
possibly due to the influence of grandparent strain Chemdawg.
When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Venom OG burns with a harsh smoke
that may induce coughing fits for some. On the exhale, this smoke tastes
both piney and skunky.
ingredient in this venom is slow to act, with as much as 15 minutes’ lag
time between smoking and feeling its effects. Eventually, smokers
detect a throbbing around the forehead and eyes, as well as an increased
heaviness in the limbs. Some may find themselves able to breathe more
deeply and easily as any muscular tension evaporates. Slowly but surely,
a full body high sets in, sending waves of relaxation rolling down the
spine and outward through the core and limbs. The pervasive worries of
the day tend to fade into the background as Venom OG makes the consumer
aware of nothing but their immediate surroundings and sensory inputs.
Beyond pure relaxation, Venom OG offers some mental distortion in the
form of changes to sensory perception. This may entail an
intensification of certain sights and sounds or an artificial flattening
of depth and perspective. In the right set and setting and with the
right group of people, this bud can be a very social asset, inspiring
conversation and good vibes. Smokers shouldn’t plan on being productive
or accomplishing large amounts of work under Venom OG’s influence, as
it’s more likely to leave them cloudy and dazed than cerebrally focused.
After a while, couchlock becomes likely, as does sleep. As such, Venom
OG is best enjoyed at night -- or at least during a particularly lazy
Venom OG also has several applications
for medical cannabis patients. Its soothing, even-tempered effects can
temporarily relieve the troubling symptoms of stress, depression,
anxiety, and even PTSD. Physiologically speaking, the strain may also
dull deep-seated aches and pains, as well as minor irritations like
headaches and nausea. As noted, in high enough doses, Venom OG can
counteract insomnia, lulling relaxed consumers into a deep and thorough
sleep. Because it’s unlikely to trigger the kind of deep, recursive
thinking that can lead to paranoia, Venom OG is a solid option for
patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
