FPOG is an indica dominant hybrid (55% indica/45% sativa) created by breeders at the infamous Alien Genetics cannabis farms. This dank bud is a cross between the hugely popular Green Ribbon X Granddaddy Purple X Tahoe OG X Alien Kush strains and boasts a moderate THC level that ranges from 18-21% on average. FPOG first gained popularity in SoCal in 2006 when it was first introduced and since then has become one of the most popular strains on the market. Users describe the FPOG high as one that starts as a soft strong body buzz that is mind-relieving and spacey followed by a mild couch-lock. It’s cloudy, slowing things down around you, but still leaves you with a hugely energetic high in which you are relaxed, friendly, and lethargic, but still functional if you want to be. FPOG is ideal for patients who suffer from conditions such as chronic pain and mood disorders, due to its relaxing body buzz and uplifting cerebral high. This bud tastes exactly like a bowl of FPOG, a sweet, tropical berry, and smells just as good! The nugs are a light minty green with a fluffy body and a blanket of resin and crystals. The most interesting feature is the coloration of the hairs that are woven through the bud – they’re a rainbow fusion of reds, purples, yellows, and oranges!
Aroma, Taste And Appearance
Many strains throughout the days have taken the Fruity Pebbles label, more often than not for their sweet and fruity scent. Most of these strains were not Fruity Pebbles. The FPOG we know and love today derives from a threeway of strains. Alien Genetics bred a female Green Ribbon and Granddaddy Purple strain, then crossed the resulting plant with Tahoe OG and Alien Kush. If you’re a little lost it’s ok, not often do strains have a family tree this out of whack!
After all, even with all this cross-breeding, what matters is the quality. And Fruity Pebbles does not fail in this department. At first glance, the strain looks like many others with it’s light green, semi-dense buds. But, the strain didn’t get its name for its appearance, it’s all about the fragrance and flavour. As you open the bag, an overwhelming tropical scent escapes and fills the air. A hint of sweetness cascades the citrus, increasing its attachment to the candy cereal it’s named after.
While smoking the strain also produces a sweet and tropical taste, a hint of hash and spice hits the palate. The strain is an easy smoke, making it ideal for newbies and pros alike. FPOG is a hybrid in the truest fashion. What else can you expect from a flower that’s the calculated offspring of 4 different strains? Moments after consuming, warm tingling sensations running down the body. Almost like putting on a thick down jacket. As the high progresses, the cerebral effects begin.
Most people will experience a mental high similar to Blue Dream‘s psychedelic experience. While not so out of this world, the consensus is the strain produces an enhanced perception of the senses. Many creatives or those wanting to open up their artistic side opt to explore FPOG. Open your valve of imagination and let it pour. Once the mental activity has begun, it’s soon joined by the giggles. It’s almost impossible to not laugh your face off. Of course, it’s fun to do so by yourself, but it’s best enjoyed with good company in a social setting.
People associate creativity with art, but it’s so much more. We require a creative mind to excel in all facets. Whether we want to show our boss why we deserve a raise, getting better at sports or making any changes in our lives. Enter a creative state of mind with Fruity Pebbles OG and explore the options outside of the box.
Even though Fruity Pebbles is often used as a recreational strain, medical patients with chronic pain also take to it. The sedating effects are strong enough to numb the pain, but not so much to create a couch-lock effect. There is no recommended time of use for this strain, so play around and see when it works best for you!
