If you haven’t heard of the Fire OG strain before, you want to keep reading because it’s one of the most interesting and sought-after strains out there, and for good reason.
Fire OG, AKA Fire OG Kush, is a moderately potent yet smooth and enjoyable indica-dominant hybrid with a delectable aroma and flavor profile. It generally doesn’t have massive THC levels, more than enough to get you where you’re looking to go, but not so much that you forget where you’re going to begin with!
Let’s take a closer look at the Fire OG strain, including where it comes from, what flavors it has, how it might affect you, growing info, and much more!
- Fire OG is an indica-dominant hybrid with OG Kush as one of its parents.
- The indica-dominant nature, combined with the terpenes, produces a strong body high that allows for relaxation and more.
- With flavors of earth, pine, lemon, diesel, and more, most people very much enjoy taking a few puffs of Fire OG.
Fire OG Strain Terpenes
Four main terpenes are contained in the Fire OG strain, with myrcene, a very herbal and earthy terp, being the most dominant one.
Limonene is another dominant terpene here, characterized by its classic citrus flavor. We then have caryophyllene, which is very peppery and spicy, followed by pinene, which smells and tastes like pine trees.
These terpenes come together to produce a very interesting, complex, and enjoyable flavor profile. However, different people often notice different flavors at the forefront.
Most people agree that the dominant flavor here is an intense pine and lemony citrus, with a hint of earthiness in the background. Many people also taste diesel or fuel in the background, with some even reporting blueberry or raspberry notes. Interestingly, some people say that the diesel and lemon flavor is dominant over the pine, but everyone seems to agree that it’s a very musky, earthy, and pungent strain overall.
Fire OG Strain Effects
The Fire OG strain has some interesting effects worth noting, with one reason being that it is indica-dominant, roughly 70% indica and 30% sativa. The Fire OG strain THC level ranges from 15% to 22%, with somewhere around 19% or 20% being fairly average.
It’s not the most potent strain in the world. Although many beginners will appreciate the moderate potency because it doesn’t usually induce paranoia or anxiety, it should still be more than potent enough for a seasoned connoisseur to get a good buzz going.
Thanks to the sativa side of the equation, the first thing you’ll feel here is quite a strong rush of energy, creativity, and euphoria. You’ll feel that cerebral high from the sativa genetics in Fire OG Kush.
However, that burst of energy and creativity will only last for a while because the 70% indica genetics soon take over. Most people report feeling extremely calm, comfortable, and relaxed when consuming Fire OG. The indica side of the equation should provide you with a relatively strong yet enjoyable body high that will make you feel like your limbs are heavy and sinking into the couch.
You should also feel both mentally and bodily relaxed and sedated, and your limbs might even feel like they are buzzing ever so slightly. At the end of it all, you’ll likely end up feeling hungry enough to empty your fridge, followed by feeling like it’s time for a good nap. This is an indica strain, so it is sedating in nature and should help you get a good night’s sleep.
Keep in mind that the various terpenes contained in the Fire OG strain also have some effects, which combine with the THC and other cannabinoids to produce what is known as the entourage effect.
For instance, one of the most dominant terpenes here, myrcene, is known for being sedating and relaxing. Another dominant terpene, limonene, may be able to help relieve stress as well. We then have the caryophyllene terpene, which may be able to help relieve pain and anxiety.
The side effects of the Fire OG strain are also relatively mild and infrequent, with some people reporting feeling a little bit dizzy, having dry eyes, and a very dry mouth.
Fire OG Strain Genetics
The Fire OG strain is an indica-dominant hybrid, with roughly 70% indica genetics and 30% sativa genetics. As for its appearance, you’ll notice quite leafy and light green nugs, almost neon green in color, along with a healthy helping of fiery hairs, a thick layer of white crystals on the outside, and some rich purple accents peppered throughout. Let’s find out where this strain comes from.
One of the parent strains is a classic, OG Kush, which is a relatively evenly balanced or slightly indica-dominant hybrid strain. OG Kush may also be called Premium OG Kush, containing a relatively low THC level of just 18%. This strain has a strong pine, lemon, and fuel flavor, which is quite likely where Fire OG gets its complex flavor profile.
The other parent strain here is San Fernando Valley OG Kush, or SFV OG Kush, an indica strain. This heavy indica strain is known for being very relaxing and sedating, and it has a moderate THC level of 19%. This strain also has a strong pine and lemon aroma, contributing to Fire OG’s overall flavor profile.
Fire OG Strain Grow Info
An important fact to know about Fire OG is that it is moderately to very difficult to grow. Growing it outdoors is not ideal, and growing it indoors or in a greenhouse is recommended. It may be grown outdoors as long as it is very warm and the temperature is consistent, but this strain does not do well with fluctuating temperatures.
This strain requires good soil, a lot of light, warmth, and humidity. Since the climate is much easier to control indoors, we recommend avoiding outdoor growth, especially for an inexperienced beginner.
It is a somewhat fragile strain, and you need to be cautious of disease, bugs, mildew, and mold. Any such infection or infestation will likely spell the end of a Fire OG plant.
In terms of size, when grown indoors, Fire OG tends to top out at around 7 feet per plant and around the same size when grown outdoors. Something else worth noting when growing indoors is that this strain is quite pungent, so be ready to control those odors if you’re growing in a residential area.
The Fire OG strain requires a fairly long flowering period, often up to 80 days or even longer, and this does not account for the nearly three months spent in the vegetative stage. You’ll need close to five or six months to get this strain from seed to harvest.
If you grow Fire OG indoors, it’s likely to have a bit more THC than if you grow it outdoors, but the tradeoff is that outdoors, you should get a bigger harvest. The Fire OG strain could produce up to 3 ounces per plant or potentially more when grown outdoors. However, you should expect each plant to produce anywhere between 1.5 and 2.5 ounces when grown indoors.
Fire OG seeds can be found at several retailers, including Blimburn Seeds, Pacific Seed Bank, and Seed Supreme.
Fire OG Strain Price
The Fire OG strain is usually moderately priced, and you can expect to spend anywhere between $9 and $12 per gram, depending on the retailer. If Fire OG is something you’d like to try, we’ll have it available soon in the form of Fire OG Delta-8 Gummies.
Fire OG vs. Other Strains
Let’s compare quickly to see how Fire OG compares with various other strains.
Fire OG vs. Alien OG
Alien OG also has a relatively strong lemon and pine flavor but generally has slightly more THC than Fire OG. It produces quite an intense high, combining both a cerebral high and body buzz. For most people, the cerebral high from Alien OG is stronger than that of Fire OG, but it also has less body buzz.
Fire OG vs. Blue Dream
Whereas Fire OG ends up being very indica-dominant, Blue Dream is a hybrid strain that is fairly evenly balanced between indica and sativa. It has a relatively low 18% THC level, allowing beginners to enjoy a moderate head high and body by. This strain is less citrusy or lemony than Fire OG and has more of a sweet Berry flavor.
Fire OG vs. Girl Scout Cookies
We then have Girl Scout Cookies, another indica-dominant hybrid with OG Kush in its lineage. This strain produces strong euphoric effects and an intense cerebral high, quickly followed by intense bodily relaxation. This strain will make you feel very hungry and free of stress and will likely put you to sleep. In this sense, Girl Scout Cookies and Fire OG are very similar.
Fire OG vs. OG Kush
OG Kush is yet another indica-dominant hybrid, one that is known for producing feelings of euphoria, hunger, and sleepiness. This is partly thanks to its indica-dominant makeup and its moderate 18% THC level. OG Kush is one of the parent strains of Fire OG, so you can expect them to be fairly similar in terms of flavor and effects.
Fire OG vs. Sour Diesel
If you’re looking for something different, Sour Diesel is the way to go, mainly because it’s a sativa marijuana strain. It produces a strong cerebral high characterized by feeling euphoric, energetic, creative, giggly, and talkative. It also has a very strong flavor that closely resembles diesel.
