Deadhead OG is a hybrid medical marijuana strain with a lineage of both Sativa and Indica. Chemdawg 91 (Sativa) accounts for 60% of its DNA, while SFV OG Kush makes up the other 40%.
A wide range of ailments can be successfully treated by Deadhead OG, including anxiety, insomnia, chronic depression, stress, and pain. Once smoked, mood elevation sets in almost immediately. Feelings of amusement and euphoria are common, and this mood improvement generally lasts for several hours. The mental high is very stimulating, resulting in increased focus and introspection, rather than a dazed, stoned feeling. It is recommended for those who want to be able to stay active after medicating. While the high does not induce lethargy, it does increase relaxation and one’s ability to fall asleep. Accompanying the cerebral high is a soothing body high. It calms muscles and jitters, dampening any pain.
Reported side effects include paranoia, anxiety, dizziness, dry mouth, and dry eyes, but only in rare cases. Because Deadhead is such a potent strain, it is not recommended for patients who are new to smoking cannabis, or have a low tolerance level.
