New Strains Alert: Vader OG, Alien Rift, Blue Ox, and More
This week’s New Strains Alert delivers a collection of up-and-coming classics from Ocean Grown Seeds and dishes up a few white-hot user-submitted strains for the weekend. Sequoia Strawberry is a fantastic fruity cross of White Strawberry and White Nightmare that will put a sizzle in your brain and some pep in your step. If you enjoy Strawberry Cough, Sequoia Strawberry is right up your alley. Blue Ox also brings the berry and throws down for the indica-dominant crowd seeking a strain to mellow out and chill. Vader OG delivers even more potent sedation while exhibiting complexity that Vader (the breeder, that is) himself tirelessly developed over years of breeding.
Sequoia Strawberry by SinCity Seeds is a sativa-dominant strain with strong motivating attributes. The genetic offspring of White Strawberry and White Nightmare, Sequoia Strawberry delivers a delicious aroma of strawberry candy with a slightly hashy undertone. Its invigorating effects lend themselves to chores, outdoor activity, and exercise. Sequoia Strawberry is also known for its phenomenal yield and snappy 60-day grow cycle.
Alien Rift by Ocean Grown Seeds is the thoroughly enhanced phenotype of Alien Abduction specifically backcrossed for better hash production. With a tart scent of lemon and spice and buds dense with trichomes, Alien Rift is certain to please the senses. This strain is the product of crossing Alien Abduction, Alien Dawg (“Ether” cut), and Alien OG. With that much extraterrestrial activity, you know this indica is out of this world! Use Alien Rift’s laidback effects to curb stress and moderate physical pain.
Blue Ox by Rare Dankness Seeds is a berry-rich version of their Stone Mountain strain. By combining classic Blueberry with The OX, Rare Dankness created a sweet, well-rounded strain with aromas of blueberry, coffee, chocolate, and earthy spice. The dense, resinous buds express blue and purple foliage that looks nearly as good as it smells. Blue Ox has extremely strong indica effects that relax the body to the point of sedation. Use Blue Ox to abate post-chemotherapy symptoms like nausea, appetite loss, and physical discomfort.
B-Witched by Ocean Grown Seeds is a magical cross of arcane genetics. By combining OGS Wizard’s Potion and the famous Witches Weed, a frosted herbaceous phantasm is brought to life, exhibiting notes of grape, forest floor, and grapefruit. Its terpene profile has also been described as “cupcake-ish.” The effects of B-Witched are enthralling, muting stress, anxiety, and nausea with ease.
Jack Smack by Ustad Seeds is an astonishingly powerful sativa. Known for its mind-warping rush of euphoria and heart-racing stimulation, Jack Smack is pure rocket fuel. Mind your dosage as this strain can easily overstimulate even the most seasoned consumer. Jack Smack is a cross of Jack Herer and Herijuana and exhibits a strong fuel aroma native to both parent strains. Enjoy this strain to combat lethargy and depression.
Jawa Pie is a sumptuously minty cut by Ocean Grown Seeds. This indica achieves its unique bouquet of shortbread, lime, and menthol by combining CookieFam’s Key Lime Pie with Ocean Grown’s own Alien Rift. The heavy combination anchors the consumer to the couch with weighted limbs and stoney sedation, making this an ideal end-of-the-day strain. Utilize Jawa Pie to mute stress, anxiety, and physical pain.
Vader OG by Ocean Grown Seeds is the namesake strain of one of OGS’s master growers, Vader. This cross began in 2006 with the combination of SFV OG and Larry OG, and evolved over a laborious process of identifying the best phenotypes to breed forward. By 2009, Vader OG had become a mainstay of the Ocean Grown Seeds roster and gave way to several new OG crosses. The terpene profile is rich with pinene, spice, and hash. Vader OG’s effects are euphoric while remaining strongly indica-dominant, locking consumers to their seat. Its effects are ideal for curbing pain and stress, but may also be used as a sleep aid in the proper dosage.
