Who doesn’t love a good OG? Unfortunately, they are getting harder to come by nowadays, as the original ’91 genetics have been pushed aside to make way for all the Gelato and Z crosses. Still, because I started smoking here in LA, SFV OG, Josh D’s OG, and especially the classic ’91 cuts fill a special place in my heart.
Venom OG, grown by Cali Kush Farms, is a cut that this team has been running for a long time, and is a staple on the menu. In fact, you might find Venom OG white labeled under a different brand, or renamed as a different strain and sold as a proprietary OG cut. Let’s dig in.
The olfactory on Venom isn’t very complex, but that doesn’t equate to disappointing. I pick up a lush pine skunk with just the tiniest bit of lemon underneath a shadow of light hops. With terpenes testing at 1.44% this is not as loud as I would prefer, but it’s still rockin’.
The nug selection on every 1/8th I’ve cracked open from Cali Kush is always tremendous. Manicure is perfect, trim is good, and the bud easily bounces light back, with its crystal-coated exterior. On the breakdown I notice the stickiness, leaving my fingers with a citronella kinda bug spray smell. I really enjoy this.
The smoke opens up on the palate with beer-like yeasty gas, similar to a German Pilsner with that nice biscuit finish. The whole profile is grassy, earthy, and lightly hopped. It’s very smooth, and pleasurable.
350F° is really where the “OG” profile starts to blossom. It cools my palate slightly on the inhale with the exhale delivers that classic pine that I was missing during combustion. There’s a “poof” factor to the texture of the vapor, which brings me to that mothball quality that I refer to in my SparkNotes. There’s a lingering sweet cannabis leaf and light diesel that rounds everything out nicely.
While my initial impression didn’t blow me away, the more I dug into it, the more I dig it. Instead of writing this off as a “standard” OG, this should be the standard for the quality of an OG. If it isn’t at least this good, I don’t want it. My only constructive criticism is to try and get that terpene and humidity % bumped up a little, and this is gold.
In summation, I think this is a flower that isn’t trying to play by the rules of today. It isn’t trying to be the next big thing. It’s a damn good OG and if you don’t like it you can get out.
