THC: 19%, CBD: 1%
Paris OG is a relatively rare medical strain, though it can be found in at least one Southern California medical marijuana dispensaries. It’s an indica-heavy strain, though the exact ratio of sativa to indica isn’t widely known. THC levels are said to be fierce, surpassing 19% in some tests, while CBD levels are considerably lower, less than 1%. That’s much too low to recommend Paris OG as treatment for epileptics or other patients whose conditions require CBD. Instead, this strain is a useful means of treating depression, glaucoma and eye pressure, headaches, muscle spasms, and nausea. The full, heavy body high is calming and sleepy, so Paris OG is also good for insomnia, and it induces euphoria, happiness, and a tingly sensation. Expect a woody diesel smell with hints of flowers and pine needles, matched with a flavor of flowers, citrus, and pine. The nugs are huge and sticky. Negatives aren’t commonly reported, but dry mouth and red eyes are usually the most likely. Though its name suggests French roots, Paris OG sells best in the American Southwest and Michigan. Rumor has it that Paris OG descends from Headband and Lemon OG, who together pass on a sweet blend of fruity, citrus flavors. With victories in multiple competitions including 1st place in the 2014 Michigan High Times’ Cannabis Cup, Paris OG has undoubtedly secured itself a long-lasting reputation in the cannabis world.
