Platinum OG Strain Overview

Platinum OG from Apothecary Genetics is just as precious as the metal it’s named after. This cultivar asserts itself as one of the “heaviest” strains around. Platinum OG is a genetic cross of Platinum Kush and Joe’s OG Kush. It emits a skunky-hash aroma mingled with fruity, sweet, and wood flavors. 

Its bright green and plump flowers have prominent orange hairs and a platinum coating courtesy of its THC-crystallized coat. A brief, heady onset settles into a powerful physical sedation suitable for nighttime use and pain, stress, or anxiety relief, making this precious strain a robust healer, according to many consumers.

Strain profile, effects, and common uses are based on customer reviews. Further research is needed, and effects may vary by user. Information on this page does not constitute or replace medical advice.

Platinum OG Strain Effects & Common Usage

The Platinum OG weed strain contains up to 20% THC. With the presence of CBD and caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene, stress relief is said to be almost guaranteed. 

Hungry. THC consumers tend to experience a rise in ghrelin production, the “hunger hormone.”

Relaxed. CBD and THC may promote mind and body relaxation. 

Sleepy. High doses of THC paired with myrcene may cause sedation and promote a healthy night’s rest.

Anxiety. Research indicates that low levels of THC, when combined with terpenes like limonene, are associated with decreased symptoms of anxiety. 

Pain. THC is well known for having pain-relieving effects, and terpenes like caryophyllene and myrcene have anti-inflammatory properties.

Stress. Linalool and myrcene are noted by some researchers to have stress-relieving effects.

Platinum OG Strain Dosage Recommendations

On the lower end, the Platinum OG strain may contain 17% THC, while the higher end may be up to 24% THC. However, even the lower amount of 17% is still a lot for beginners to handle. Newbies should start with 1-3 puffs and wait 15-30 minutes, while experienced consumers can benefit from the strain’s calming effects with 3-6 well-spaced inhales. 

The right dosage can vary greatly from one user to the next. If you have questions about finding the right dosage or product type for your needs, consider consulting with a medical cannabis doctor, or you can request a consultation with NuggMD’s Cannabis Concierge.
