Growing Lavender OG

If you’re looking for an OG strain that has dense, frosty nugs and provides deeply relaxing effects, Lavender OG might be the strain for you. For indoor growers, Lavender OG requires 8 weeks of flowering time before harvest can begin. Your yield should be between 400-500 grams per square meter when growing Lavender OG indoors. While this strain is good for beginners, it’s important to keep in mind that the Potency levels are high (17%). This means that Lavender OG is not suitable for novice users. Lavender OG has a recommended height of 50-100cm and an exceptionally low leaf-to-bud ratio, which means you won’t need to invest in high-intensity lamps and your light will be able to cover a larger amount of space. This strain is an ideal option for both indoor and outdoor growers with sunny climates who want large, dense buds that produce a strong effect.

How Does Lavender OG Interact with the Endocannabinoid System?

The effects you can anticipate are largely determined by the interaction of cannabis L. short photoperiod plant and cannabis L. long photoperiod plant with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). So, let’s examine what the ECS is to get a better understanding of what you can anticipate from Lavender OG.

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The ECS is the largest known neurotransmitter system in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS includes two receptors responsible for receiving cannabinoids signals, CB1 & CB2, that are part of many tissues throughout your body (Lu, Mackie; 2016). CB1 receptors are primarily expressed within the brain, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. CB2 receptors are primarily present in the immune system, hematopoietic cells, and peripheral nervous system.

The ECS is responsible for regulating homeostasis within your body through neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors found throughout your endocrine and central nervous systems. This network of neuromodulators is involved in a variety of physiological processes, including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory. While your ECS’ main purpose is maintaining homeostasis, it also influences your emotional state by connecting with the limbic system of your brain (Komorowski, Stepien, 2007).

The endocannabinoid system consists of three components: 

  • Endocannabinoids: These are the naturally occurring cannabinoids that interact with your cannabinoid receptors found throughout your endocrine and central nervous systems. They help regulate a variety of cognitive and physical processes, including mood, memory, pain sensation, appetite, and sleep.  (Rodriguez de Fonseca et al., 2004)
  • Cannabinoid receptors: These are proteins that recognize endocannabinoids and cannabinoids found in cannabis.  They are concentrated in your brain and throughout your central and peripheral nervous systems. There are two primary cannabinoid receptors: CB1 & CB2 (Komorowski, et al., 2007)
  • Enzymes: These break down endocannabinoids after they are used. The body creates these on an “as needed” basis to help the body and mind stay in good balance.

Phytocannabinoids and Lavender OG

Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids found in plants, such as CBD and Potency. They interact with your cannabinoid receptors to provide a variety of physical and mental effects. The ECS is affected by two phytocannabinoids in a unique way:

Tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) is primarily responsible for the high you feel when consuming cannabis. It binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors, resulting in a psychoactive effect. It’s both euphoric and relaxing, but also has some unpleasant side effects including anxiety, dry mouth, red eyes, increased heart rate, etc.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid with a wide range of health benefits. It has been linked to reductions in inflammation, pain relief, and more. It does not bind directly to CB1 or CB2 receptors, but it works indirectly by inhibiting the enzyme FAAH that breaks down anandamide.

The amount of Potency and CBD in a strain plays a key role in the potency of its effects. Lavender OG contains around 14-17 percent Potency and around 0.5 percent CBD. These two work in conjunction to provide a unique profile of effects.

Potency: 14-17% CBD: 0.5% CBC: 0.5% CBG: 0.6% CBN: 0.1% PotencyV: 0.7%

The Terpene Profile of Lavender OG

Terpenes are present in all plants. They are responsible for the aroma and taste we associate with certain plants such as lavender, citrus, mint, etc. They also contribute to the effects of a plant through their interaction with your ECS.

Lavender OG is known for its signature lavender scent and earthy flavor. This strain is full-bodied and smooth, which is due in part to its terpene profile. Lavender OG contains three main terpenes :

Bisabolol: This terpene gives Lavender OG an herbaceous, floral scent. It also has anti-irritant and anti-microbial properties, which may contribute to the relief of muscle aches (Seki et al., 2011).

Camphene: This terpene provides Lavender OG with a woody, pine scent. Camphene has relaxing effects that contribute to its overall effect. Recent studies show that it may be helpful for relieving pain and reducing inflammation (Gadotti et al., 2021).

Linalool: This terpene gives lavender OG a spicy, citrus scent. It has been shown to reduce anxiety by affecting serotonin levels in the brain (Linck et al., 2010).

The terpene profile of Lavender OG creates a full-bodied and smooth effect. It’s relaxing, but not sedating. This makes Lavender OG a great option for those who have trouble sleeping.

Type of Strain: Short Photoperiod Plant vs Long Photoperiod Plant

Cannabis L. short photoperiod plants produces a more powerful “body buzz,” as well as euphoria and calmness, than other varieties of cannabis. Cannabis L. long photoperiod plant, on the other hand, has been shown in studies to provide a more cerebral, energizing experience that boosts creativity and motivation to get more active. Lavender OG is a combination of short photoperiod plant and long photoperiod plant, making it a combination between short and long photoperiod plant. In this strain, it’s 70 percent short photoperiod plant and 30 percent long photoperiod plant, which makes it a perfect choice for when you need help relaxing during the day but do not want to lose focus.

The Physical and Psychoactive Effects of Lavender OG

By looking at the Potency and CBD content, terpene profile, and the type of strain this is and comparing this to user feedback and responses, we have found that Lavender OG is most likely to provide the following effects: 

  • Ease muscle spasms
  • Relief from joint pain and inflammation
  • Full-body relaxation
  • Ease feelings of stress, depression, or worry
  • Head buzz
