Effects & Usage



Venom OG is an evenly balanced hybrid strain bred by Rare Dankness Genetics – an upcoming Colorado-based cultivator that’s been around the block for a little over 15 years. With a THC range of 18-23%, this strain promises a robust high that targets aches and pains with a sedative, euphoric effect that calms rather than stimulates. The strains’ robust, well-rounded effects led it to win the 2018 High Times Cannabis Cup.


The rush of happiness followed by a heavy head and a warming wave of tingles suggests Venom OG is a strain that can ease you into relaxation. Despite carrying a seemingly threatening name, the only things it will poison and kill are your ailments and negative energies.

Euphoric, uplifting, and calming vibes are to be expected. Being a hybrid cultivar, it delivers the best of Indica and Sativa without letting one side overpower the other. The cerebral effects eventually bring about a sleepiness that is blissful and complete.


Venom OG’s therapeutic use is as versatile as it is profound. It offers significant relief from chronic pain and insomnia, eases muscle spasms, and helps with stress and anxiety. Its potent effects also make it a candidate for more chronic conditions, providing a much-needed respite for those in need.

Side Effects

While Venom OG is celebrated for its potent therapeutic effects, it is not without potential side effects, particularly due to its high THC content. The most commonly reported are dry mouth and dry eyes. Some users may experience dizziness or a slight headache, particularly if they are new to cannabis or sensitive to THC.

Taste & Smell


Venom OG greets you with a sharp diesel smell and sweet and sour earthy lemon undertones.

The scent is a layered mix of sharp, pungent notes intertwined with the earthiness that is characteristic of many OG strains. Citrus undertones, particularly lemon, cut through the diesel, giving it a sweet yet sour dimension that makes the strain instantly recognisable.

The buds are dense, forest green, with bright orange hairs and amber trichomes that hint at the strain’s potency.



Venom OG, a nuanced hybrid also known as Venom OG Kush and just Venom, owes its genetic heritage to two lesser-known strains: Poison OG and Rare Dankness #1. Poison OG brings to the table a potent lineage, possibly descending from Durban Poison and OG Kush. At the same time, Rare Dankness #1 is the flagship strain of Rare Dankness Genetics and features genes from Ghost OG and Chemdawg.

Growing information

Venom OG has a moderate growing difficulty level, primarily due to its balanced Indica and Sativa genetics. It flourishes in both indoor and outdoor settings, although it tends to prefer controlled indoor environments where variables such as temperature and humidity can be finely tuned. As such, this plant can do well in a hydroponic setting.

Venom OG typically has a flowering time of about 8 to 9 weeks, which is relatively quick for a strain with such dense and resinous buds.
