This was one of those cases where exterior appearances can be deceiving, and reminded us not to judge just based on naked eye appearance. The nug we got as the sample was a large, blocky, and very dense with a dark green and red color palate that screamed “Indica” to our staff. Though the trichome coverage wasn’t overtly apparent just looking at the bud, when under the scope, it showed off a hearty collection of large-headed and short-stemmed trichomes that were mostly clear and cloudy. The earlier harvest may have been intentional in this case, as these genetics hold the potential for a total KO type of effect.
Though this isn’t an appealing smell in the sense that something fruity or sweet is, it appealed to the Indica-lovers in our staff, who recognized the musky, woody, spicy, earthy aromas it released as harbingers of a traditional type of Indica experience. It was a bit softer and more straight musky with slight pepper notes in the bag/jar, but when ground, it became more sharp and garlicky, with hints of pine and a major uptick in pungency level.
Much like the pre-grind smell, the flavor was a spicy, vegetal, and earth-dominant experience, never tasting particularly distinct. The smoke was fairly pleasant and only made us cough on large hits due to expansion. The flavor did degrade to the point where it wasn’t pleasurable by the end, but that’s fairly standard amongst strains that aren’t overtly flavorful from the outset. There was some room for improvement with the flush, as the final ash was a medium gray with some white and bits of darker gray.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energy to start, ocular pressure changes, some anti-nausea properties, light pain and muscle tension relief, and sleep aid later in the duration.
The genetics from the breeder says OG Kush, but this one really seemed much more like a traditional Hindu Kush type of strain, especially in the appearance, smell, and taste areas. Oh! Zone looks extremely Indica in almost every way, from the dark coloration to the fat trichome heads, and the taste and smell carried that trend through, with a package of spicy, musky, and earthy qualities. We felt that the effects seemed to depend upon context a bit, as a morning review produced more of a moderate Indica hybrid experience, and a later session resulted in a more overt Indica feeling, with only the first 30 minutes to 1 hour feeling energizing or stimulating. The sleep aid properties that ended this experience were perhaps its greatest medical benefit, but the main effects serves to elevate mood a bit while helping with daily aches and tensions. Oh! Zone had a potent start that might be a little much for inexperienced patients, so we’d mark this in the mid-level patient category, primarily for evening use.
