I smoke this but in the vape @89% thc. I am a new smoker and this strain to me is perfect! It helps me sleep and calms my pain. I had a thyroid med issue and my heart rate kept going high. One hit of this brought it right back down. So for last 3 months I sleep with my lavender cartridge on my night stand. If I wake up I hit it and pass back out.
Indica Dominant Hybrid -60% Indica / 40% Sativa
THC: 27%, CBD: 1%Also known as Lavender Kush, this strain gets its name from its odor and the dark purple coloration on its leaves. It's an indica-dominant mix of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, and Afghani Hawaiian, and it has a 40:60 sativa/indica ratio. Lavender has a spicy aroma with floral tones and has a sweet lavender taste. This strain is well known for its unique flavor and smell. It produces a strong, relaxing high with euphoria and happiness. It's frequently used to treat GI problems and mental disorders, as its soothing effects wash anxiety away and lift depression. Dry mouth and red eyes are possible, as is paranoia and headaches, though those are very limited. Lavender hits THC levels as high as 27%, making it one of the more potent and effective strains on the market. It causes a slight head high and then a powerful body high driven by the indica-dominant genes. Lavender is most popular on the West Coast, less so in the rest of the country. Its short vegetative cycle and easy cultivating makes it a good choice for patients who home grow. This

I hate this strain. Although I have been smoking for over a decade, I tend to stay away from extremely potent strains. The batch of this that I ended up with was labeled 22% thx-a (I think it may have been higher). I smoked a bowl of this rather quickly before bed. It was not at all the relaxing sleepy bud that I had expected. I didn’t feel much except some tingling in my legs for what felt like 45 minutes and then “bam!” I felt the most intense head high of my life, along with nausea and a crazy loss of coordination. This lasted for about an hour. It may have just hit me wrong, I don’t know. I have never had such an unpleasant high.
I also am confound as to why people don't do their homework and complain about how bad a really potent strain is. I'm also confused as to why more people don't have CBD oil on hand (as this works as an antidote to a snowballing high as I call it; even if it is counterproductive to smoking) if they can't handle the bud. Forty percent sativa and high THC is going to give you a rush and it is going to be intense; much as how this dank bud performs through and through. Eventually the euphoria evolves into an insane couchlock and a case of the extreme munchies; so make sure you have a stoner's munchie kit nearby. You are gonna need it. People do your homework before buying and smoking bud; find out what strain is right for you instead of jumping into the shallow end of the pool head first. This bud is for seasoned smokers.
This strain is not for inexperienced users or people who can't handle high thc strains. You get a rush of steady yet somewhat short lived euphoria, followed by the indica takeover of moderate to intense couchlock. I'd recommend as an evening strain, it hits hard. The moderately high sativa component can catch novices off guard and cause them to have a rush though. Very very pleasant strain; dont listen to the negative reviews. People didn't do their homework!
I don't know why people hate this strain so much. If you read the specs, it clearly says it's 40% sativa and high THC content. So don't complain about it keeping you up at night without taking a sedative. If you can't handle high THC, don't take it. Simple as that. I love this strain. I felt incredibly euphoric and creatively inspired. I felt like I was floating pretty much the whole time, and I kept having these beautiful closed-eye visuals, especially with music playing.
This is hands down the worst strain I've EVER vaped... For those of you posting how relaxing this strain is; I am dumbfounded at how you came to that conclusion. One hit off my flower vape and I was immediately amped up like I had taken a stimulant of some kind. I kept waiting for the indica side of this strain to appear, but alas got nothing. I bought this specifically for the sedation and relaxation that is touted of Lavender, but clearly got the exact opposite. One vape hit at 5 pm and I was still wide awake at 2 am. While my muscles were looser, my heart was racing and I was experiencing waves of anxiety. Perhaps the high THC was the culprit, but the results are the same. No thanks Lavender... Not for me. When I use indica dominant cannabis, I want to feel chill and happy and mellow. An indica dominant strain should not make me feel like I need to do laps. HATE this strain !!
Superb for sleep problems and neuralgic pain issues, had in oil form and it HITS HARD. Very very strong on the draw. To me it had a nice spice on the nose when exhaling. The vape cartridge, surprisingly lasted a whole month even though I used it every night lol.
Nice review great info
The only medicine that can touch my GI distress and endometriosis pain. Life changing medicine for those who are dealing with crippling pain, anxiety and other serious stress (physical or mental). Not for beginning smokers or those who simply want a 'buzz.'
I've been smoking for over 6 years now and never have I ever had such a horrible expirence before smoking lavender og. I'm not sure if it's because it's more potent that I'm used to, my flowers were laced with something (however, I doubt this is the case) or it's just a bunk ass bud, but about have a j in, I get super lightheaded that then progressed to crazy nausea. I had to get up and walk to my room but not before I fainted. I passed out for like 10 seconds and dropped (violently) to the ground. This nasty feeling lasted for about 20 min and the high was gine in about 50 min. A few days after, I took maybe 4 hits from my left over j. I didn't faint, but my whole body was spasming and the nausea was back. Needless to say, I flushed the rest of my bud down the toilet. 10/10 would NOT recommend. Total waste of $50. Scary bud.
