Skywalker OG Benefits/Effects
Yes, we could make endless jokes about galaxies far, far away. But actually, Skywalker OG is exactly the sort of strain I imagine is in The Dude’s joint in the tub. It won’t knock you totally out, but it’s a deep body stone, even for a real stoner.
This strain was born when two popular and heavy-hitting strains crossed light sabers, or whatever: Skywalker x OG Kush. Skywalker itself is a cross between Mazar and Blueberry, so you can imagine that Skywalker OG brings together some enlightening and powerful indica forces in this and enjoyable 80% indica-dominant hybrid. Still, you avoid total loss of consciousness thanks to just enough 20% uplifting sativa balance.
This strain has extremely high THC levels of up to 26% and low CBD levels. Even the lower side, which hovers around 20%, isn’t for beginners, as it comes on fast and produces an intense high. This makes Skywalker OG a great choice for both medical marijuana patients needing serious body effects and pain relief, and veteran smokers who really need to challenge their tolerance with a higher THC strain.
These days Skywalker OG is popular among American consumers coast to coast. As mentioned, Skywalker OG cannabis seeds produce 80%/20% indica-dominant effects, including mental and physical sedation and a calming body buzz of the OG Kush strains. Skywalker OG really will send you higher, even if you’ve developed a bit of a tolerance over the years.
Skywalker OG Medical Benefits
The Skywalker OG strain is ideal for both medical marijuana patients and recreational users. It has amazing effects even for experienced users with high tolerance. In fact, beginners should go slowly as even low to average THC content in this strain will hover at 20%.
Skywalker OG is for the user seeking potent physical and mental relief that can tame even the most persistent of symptoms. Medical marijuana patients love this strain for its long-lasting pain-relieving ability. Recreational users love Skywalker OG because they’ve felt too much couch-lock from imbalanced blends in the past, or have been disappointed by lighter strains in the past.
Skywalker OG is known to relieve back pain, chronic pain from inflammation, cramps, insomnia, joint pain, muscle spasms, nausea, pain from surgery or injury, and everyday overworked muscles. Skywalker OG’s indica-dominant properties also make it an excellent marijuana strain for anxiety, depression, and stress relief, producing a mellow, relaxed feeling.
Skywalker OG Taste and Smell
Skywalker OG hits your senses fast, but it also lingers. Right away you’ll detect hints of fresh herbs from the garden, and these are followed up with that dank, soothing fragrance of fresh loam, earth, and wood. But most prominent of all is that spicy, peppery sweetness hanging on underneath, and for a long time afterward. The exhale is more piney and earthy, and you never lose those undertones of spice.
Skywalker OG Cannabinoid/Terpene Profile
Skywalker OG is known for a high THC composition of 26% or even higher, with phenotypes ranging from 20 to 26% in the normal zone.
CBD levels of around 1.0% are present in some strains, but most varieties are not known for CBD or minor cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, CBV, or CBN. For this reason, Skywalker OG may produce some of the classic high THC side effects such as dry eyes and dry mouth.
Skywalker OG is rich in the terpene Caryophyllene and Myrcene, with smaller amounts of Pinene, Linalool, and Terpinolene.
Myrcene relieves pain and is known for herbal, soothing benefits. Caryophyllene, an immune system-boosting antioxidant, also relieves pain as an anti-inflammatory. It also binds with the body’s CB2 receptors and has been proven to soothe anxiety and stress.
Like caryophyllene, pinene relieves pain as an anti-inflammatory. It also opens the airways as a bronchodilator, creating that fresh pine air effect you get in a forest. Linalool improves the mood and can soothe stress.
Known for its uplifting effects, terpinolene is a mood lifter. Strains such as Skywalker OG that have only slight amounts of terpinolene are likely to have just a light, fruity uplift that might offset more relaxing qualities of more dominant terpenes. Benefits of terpinolene include antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antioxidant properties.
Skywalker OG History and Genetics
Like many strains, Skywalker OG’s history and genetics are mostly a mystery. But we do know that this strain was bred from Skywalker and OG Kush, Skywalker itself being a cross between Mazar and Blueberry.
If You Love Skywalker OG Marijuana, Try These Strains
If you like the tingly, dream-inducing sedation of Cookie Monster or the happy, fruity relaxation of Zkittlez but you like a spicier finish even deeper body buzz, Skywalker OG is your strain. If you love the pain relief of Animal Cookies, Blue Dream, and White Widow but want more tingly sedation, and you’re a Northern Lights fan but prefer slightly less sleepiness, Skywalker OG is an ideal choice.
Skywalker OG is very similar in effects to its Girl Scout Cookies friends like the ones above, plus and but it is very high in caryophyllene and therefore tastes of spice and pepper instead of skunk, jet fuel or chemicals like GMO Cookies or Sour Diesel, and has less limonene than Scooby Snacks or some other cookies strains so you won’t taste citrus.
Growing the Skywalker OG Strain
Skywalker OG thrives as an outdoor plant with great yields because it loves sunlight and demands lots of space. Indoor growing is possible, it’s just not the best option.
If you are growing Skywalker OG outside, humidity is critical and potentially harmful. Bright, sunny, dry climates serve these plants well, and in the right conditions with a foliar spray to protect against mildew, Skywalker OG can really exceed your expectations.
Skywalker OG yields always depend on all of the factors, such as care, light, and nutrients, but under the right circumstances each of your Skywalker OG plants may yield upwards of 28 ounces of usable bud, assuming they have plenty of space and sunlight. Skywalker OG seeds do well with both SOG and SCROG methods. In other words, this strain does demand some effort and is not the greatest choice for an absolute first time grower.
Inside, keep the temperature steady between 68-80 degrees F to grow Skywalker OG. In 9 to 10 weeks flowering time you can harvest these nugs after the days shorten and signal that change in photoperiod to the plants. This cannabis strain will yield as much as 16 ounces per 3 by 3 foot area.

The bottom line is: if you’re looking for a strong indica-dominant hybrid that relieves many medical symptoms, or you just need a deep body stone that can beat back your tolerance level, Skywalker OG is an awesome strain.
