Russian Assassin, also known more commonly as “Russian Assassin OG,” is an indica dominant hybrid strain created through a powerful three-way cross of the insanely popular Skywalker X Lemon OG Kush X Headband strains. Although the exact indica to sativa ratio is unknown due to variability in breeding, Russian Assassin's THC level has been measured at up to 23%. This bud is best known for its pungent minty smell that has a sharp citrus hint that almost stings the nose. The taste is very different, with a spicy earthy pungency that turns to a sweet citrus pine upon exhale. The Russian Assassin high is characterized by tingly activity in both the mind and the body. The high starts with a cerebral head rush that slams into your mind, leaving it completely pain free with a pleasant prickly effect that's both energizing and uplifting. This head high slowly begins to spread throughout your body, grabbing hold and leaving you with a tingly body buzz that rids you of any physical pain and drops you into a melting pool of utter relaxation and complete bliss. Because of this potent combination of sativa and indica effects, Russian Assassin is said to be perfect for treating fatigue, mild to moderate cases of depression, chronic pain, and nausea. This bud has small dense and compact lumpy forest green popcorn-shaped nugs with light minty green patches, amber hairs, and a frosty layer of sugary white trichomes.
