Sour OG Strain Highlights is a 50/50 hybrid strain that is a real favorite among those who love a balanced Sativa/Indica buzz. As a cross of two of the most popular and widely available strains in the world (Sour Diesel and OG Kush), Sour OG has been available in clone and seed form for quite some time. Most samples express dense, round, OG Kush-type buds laden with large, sticky trichomes.
The odor and taste are usually an equal mix of both parents, with sour lemon, pine, fuel, and a distinct “kushy” undertone, although some versions have a more fruity profile. Often described as a “one-hit-quit” strain, he starts with an energetic head high that gradually gives way to a relaxing body stone.
Sour OG Strain – Everything You Need to Know & More!
If you’re a fan of balanced hybrids with great taste, then there’s no point looking any further than Sour OG. If you’re familiar with the term Frankenstein, then Sour OG is an example of that.
Frankenstein strains are two or more dank strains that have been bred together to create one monster strain. Sour OG is an example of that, as it’s a cross between Sour Diesel and OG Kush. This strain is known as a one-hitter, as it will probably knock most users out after the first inhale.
This strain is also known as Super Sour OG, OG Sour Diesel, Diesel OG, OG Cross, Legend OG, or Sour Diesel hybrid.

SOUR DIESEL + OG KUSH HYBRID
Sour OG, AKA 818 Headband, is a 50/50 hybrid that offers a perfectly balanced Sativa & Indica high. This active mind, calm body experience is perhaps one of the most sought-after highs in the entire cannabis world. The strain is covered in orange hairs and smells like lemon, pine, and diesel. This strain is a fast-acter, but also a hard-hitter, so be warned!
Sour OG Strain GENETICS
Sour OG is a cross between two legendary dank strains:
- Sour Diesel
- OG Kush

Both of these strains are legends in their own right, which normally makes for a fantastic combination. With one sativa and one indica parent, you can see the logic behind creating this strain. It was created by Green Bodhi, which, unfortunately, means the seeds are hard to come by. If you do come by the seeds, then consider yourself incredibly lucky.
Sour OG Strain THC PERCENTAGE
The average hybrid has around 13% THC. However, Sour OG is in a league of its own with a whopping 20% average. This comes from the combination of Sour Diesel and OG Kush. Sour OG can test up to a pretty crazy 27% THC. If you don’t smoke a lot, take it easy with this strain. If you do start to feel a bit too high then take a cold shower and have a coffee. This should make you feel a bit more normal.
SOUR OG KUSH PRICE
Sour OG is a truly Frankenstein strain. Also, the seeds aren’t available from the original breeder. This makes it very difficult to make sure that the strain you’re smoking is Sour OG. This also drives the price up, because the supply is much lower than it is for other strains. In North America, this strain is about $15 a gram. In Amsterdam, it’s going to be more like $20-25 per gram.
Sour OG Strain TASTE
This Sour OG Strain should be smoked or vaped inside a vaporizer. That is because you’ll truly get to appreciate the unique and beautiful taste of this strain. This strain’s taste profile is:
Using a vaporizer has many different advantages, but the main one is that the taste is a lot purer and the smoke is a lot healthier.
Sour OG Strain WAX, OIL, SHATTER, EDIBLES, ETC.
This Sour OG Strain makes perfect concentrates, and you can find a lot of examples of dispensaries that sell this strain in shatter, wax, or concentrate format. The combined tastiness and high THC content contribute to Sour OG’s great candidacy as a strain to make concentrates out of.
You can make any strain into wax, shatter, edibles, or oils. Some strains are better than others, and Sour OG is a good strain for this. Making waxes and shatters (also known as BHO) can be very dangerous, so it’s highly recommended that you just make edibles instead, as they’re much easier to make.
They’re a lot more potent as well, as a potent edible will have you feeling way more stoned than a potent dab. Just remember to decarboxylate your weed before you make it into an edible, as, if you don’t, you’re missing out on a large amount of potency. This is another advantage of vaping. Your already vaped bud is perfectly decarboxylated marijuana.

It was deliberately created to be smack bang in the middle between Sativa and Indica and achieves this very well. These kinds of strains, Blue Dream is another example, are what a lot of people prefer to treat depression with. That is because it’s like receiving a warm India hug, whilst at the same time receiving a euphoric Sativa high.

SOUR OG KUSH SEEDS

Your best bet would be to find a clipping of this strain, but this is pretty difficult as well. Both thecaliconnection and Dinafem have seeds, which are called 818 Headband and Sour Kush respectively. These are probably your best bets.
