Effects & Usage



Platinum OG, known for its shimmery silver coating of trichome crystals, is a strong Indica-dominant hybrid with a THC range of 17% to 24%. This strain is a descendant of Master Kush and OG Kush, possibly mixed with a third unknown strain. Considering that this cultivar is a mix of some hard-hitting Indicas, its effects on the body are unmissable.

Platinum OG has built a reputation in the cannabis community for its luxurious look and potent body high.


Upon smoking, Platinum OG initially affects the mind, fogging it temporarily before settling into a soothing body buzz. Users often recount feeling an immediate warmth and relaxation, almost as if they’re being wrapped in a soft, comforting blanket.

This transition is perfect for evening use, as it leads to restful ease, easing negative thoughts and allowing relaxation to take hold.

The cerebral effects are minimal – that isn’t to say you will not feel your thoughts running around – but the Sativa genetics are not definitely not as pronounced as other hybrid varieties.

This strain’s high is notably powerful and long-lasting, making it a favourite among those looking to unwind after a stressful day or simply enjoy a quiet night in.


Platinum OG is a medicinal marvel for many. This shiny strain offers a unique experience loaded with powerful effects perfect for both recreational and medicinal users.

Its high THC content and indica dominance make it an excellent choice for individuals struggling with insomnia, anxiety, ADHD, inflammation, and chronic pain. Additionally, it’s known to boost appetite and alleviate upset stomachs, making it a versatile option for a range of conditions.

Side effects

Common side effects include dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, and in some instances, paranoia, especially when taken in high doses. Due to its potency, beginners are advised to proceed with caution.

Taste & Smell


Platinum OG is a feast for the senses. It boasts a rich earthy taste with dominant herbal flavours followed by a spice of diesel – likely a gift from its caryophyllene content. The aroma is a blend of diesel, spice, and coffee grounds, true to the Kush family.

In terms of appearance, Platinum OG truly lives up to its name. Its dense buds glisten with a silvery hue, a result of the thick blanket of trichomes. This gives the strain an almost mystical, precious appearance, making it stand out in any collection.



A cross between Master Kush, OG Kush, and a mysterious third parent, Platinum OG proudly presents some incredible Indica genetics. Its exact origins remain a bit of a mystery, but its potency and effects are undeniable.

Growing conditions

Platinum OG has a short flowering time – 7-9 weeks. It’s a hardy strain resistant to diseases, mould, and mildew – making it ideal for indoor growth.

That said, this strain can be quite difficult to grow for those new to cannabis cultivation. In addition, this variety is also low-yielding – producing 200-300 grams per metre square indoors and 350-500 grams per plant outdoors.

The high quality of flowers compensates for this low yield. Under ideal conditions, Platinum OG can bless you with shiny trichomes-rich buds.
