In Nepalese folklore, a yeti is a large creature that lives
in the Himalayas. It supposedly resembles a bear or an ape due to its height. The
cannabis strain Yeti OG is just as tall. Not to mention, it has a propensity
for cold weather as well.
Apart from being the former being fictional, the main
difference between the two is that the latter does not incite feelings of worry
or dread. Instead, it tranquilizes the negativity with its soothing euphoria. It
is also quite a potent strain with at least 20% THC.
To create it, Loompa Farms took the world-renowned OG Kush. From it, the strain gained its signature lemon and earth undertones as well as impressive high. The breeders then added Sour Diesel to counter its weakness against mold as well as reinforce its growth profile. The original cross was formerly called Headband BX but it was later changed to Yeti OG after it grew so tall.

During the onset, it delivers a stimulating head high that boosts
creativity. It clears the mind first to create space for more productive
thoughts or groundbreaking ideas. Feeling motivated, casual users can pursue a

After about an hour or two, a creeping pressure surges through the body. It makes the body limber by soothing each muscle it passes and releasing any tension or tightness. Although it is intense, it does plant a heaviness in the limbs until after the comedown. Hence, users can still fulfill some light physical tasks before retiring for the night.
Yeti OG has a pungent scent with notable earthy overtone. Its undertones are quite sour, reminiscent of either lemon and diesel or fuel. Complementing it is a peculiar but refreshing blend of nuts and pine.
Yeti OG has a creamy smoke that tantalizes the palate with the taste of nuts and earth. Swirling it around one’s mouth reveals its sour undertone of lemon. Meanwhile, on the exhale, it leaves a refreshing aftertaste of pine but with the tanginess of diesel.
Cannabinoids have moisture-inhibiting properties. Hence, the dryness is no longer a huge surprise for seasoned users. It is particularly noticeable in the eyes and the mouth but mild. Moreover, it goes away on its own after a few hours. A more concerning side effect of smoking Yeti OG is greening out. It is characterized by a disorienting awareness that not only incites dizziness but also triggers anxiety. Pacing and moderation, however, will keep the effects at bay.
At up to 3%, Yeti OG has a higher CBD content compared to other
recreational strains. Hence, it is of significant therapeutic value to the
medical marijuana patients. Its uplifting yet relaxing head to toe high
provides a reprieve for a myriad of maladies.
Stress, for example, is greatly reduced when using Yeti OG. It has a
soothing euphoria that calms overwhelming dread triggered by stressors as well
as the anxiety that comes with it. In a similar manner, it also manages

Indoors, Yeti OG
grows like a typical Indica. It is short and bushy. Its stalks, as well as its
branches, are thick too. However, it needs to be pruned often as its dense
foliage can get in the way of light and air circulation which will stunt its
Aspiring growers may train the plant through the Sea of Green method. It increases yields by taking advantage of its compact structure. Another way to raise turnout is by using a hydroponics setup. It delivers nutrients directly to the roots, resulting in explosive growth. However, it is quite expensive and requires experience. Soil is a more practical for beginners as it is cost effective. Not to mention, it improves the flavor profile of the strain.
Cultivated outdoors, Yeti OG stretches like a Sativa-leaning strain. It produces longer, larger colas that are packed to the brim with resin. However, its lankier structure will require protection against harsh weather like heavy rains or strong winds which might break its branches. Frost will also be a problem as it can kill the plant overnight. In such cases, installing a temporary enclosing is enough.
