Upon first glance of the product jar, it was apparent this bud was a true OG cut and based on the sweeping availability of Scott’s OG in Colorado, our first impression was this is the real deal. For a recreationally grown product offering we were pleasantly surprised with its shelf presence, as we’ve seen much worse in Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs, and mountain town dispensaries. A consistent, light green complexion was evident from a distance as well as visibly apparent white trichome coverage. These characteristics combined with the small but swollen beady calyx structure had us immediately excited for what all indications pointed to as a classic OG strain. However, once we placed a sample under the macro lens, a few broken trichome stalks were observed along with initially deceptive skimp trichome coverage that lacked consistency, overall leaving the bud’s magnified appearance patchy.
The ambient bouquet of pine forest and skunk that emanated out of the freshly popped jar was pleasant and indicative of a definitive OG. Once removed from the jar, the isolated specimens were not as aromatic but nevertheless permeated through the room. Over the four to five days from sale to final consumption, and as the bud further dried, the olfactory sensations and overall experience became less robust while a noticeable, moist aroma settled into the product.
Our Scott’s OG sample was still a bit moist upon purchase, as a quality OG should be considering its costal humid heritage to California and Florida. An over-dried OG is not how the strain is best appreciated as a varietal due to loss of scent, bud structure, and overall burn effects. This sample required the slightest pulling apart rather than just a dry crumble, which is a sign of quality OG Kush. But the high humidity of an abnormally wet spring in Denver may have been a challenge in obtaining a complete cure. Once we sampled the product, and expecting knockout tartness as well as lip-smacking skunk, we were indeed a touch disappointed. The acute moisture in the flower required more flame than appreciated which may have caused the flavor to dull after two pulls from the pipe. Furthermore, as this sample continued to dry over a couple of days, the taste did not evolve forward as you might expect with the Scott’s OG strain.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Very stony and left us wanting a nap after a short onset of action. On the whole, effective pain relief that brought on drowsiness and lethargy.

Scott’s OG is a Colorado-proud strain but embodies the tenement characteristics of the old school California style Kush. Essentially a heavy Triangle x Ghost backcross, one should expect Scott’s OG to be a very stony, aromatic, dense little bud. Doctor’s Orders Denver delivers in the outward appearance and desired aroma categories hands down. Furthermore, their product is hand-trimmed so the growth structure of the plant was well retained. Unfortunately, the consumption effect was slightly underdeveloped in intensity, however a swift THC kick was experienced and enjoyed. A short duration high, this sample of Scott’s OG left us lethargic just after a short while following consumption. That being said, it was a solid indica experience that remedied the wears and tears of a rigorous workday. But it’s typical for even an indica dominant strain to wear off with the ability for the consumer to wake up and return to an alert state, this was not the case for this Scott’s OG sample as it left a foggy, full-body drag for longer than expected.
