About this Indica Strain
Face Off OG strain derives its name from the movie starring Nicolas Cage and John Travolta – where the two characters swap faces. Its high has been described to produce a similar feeling effect. Its buds are dense and lime green, covered in red pistils. Its smell and taste are sweet, earthy, and pine-like.
The parent strains of Face Off OG remain unknown, but many claim that its genetics are of two heavy indica strains. It was first bred in the late 90’s in California by Archive Seeds.
The THC levels of this strain have been known to reach heights of 20%. Reviewers describe its high as a dizzying euphoria that starts in the head and face, thus its name. It will soon calm into a sleepy and relaxed feel, leaving the mind wandering and the body heavy. This strain is recommended for veteran consumers due its hard-hitting psychoactive effects that occur towards the beginning of the high. It’s also best to consume at night, indoors – so make sure no tasks need to be completed before consuming.
Negative effects include the usual dry mouth and eyes, with those unaccustomed to hart-hitting strains experiencing either anxiety or paranoia.
Flowering time for Face Off OG takes nine weeks.
Medical Benefits of the Face Off OG Strain
While it is a potentially useful option for MMJ patients, it is best if only experienced cannabis smokers try the Face Off OG strain. One of its main uses is to help people get to sleep. It would help if you used it a few hours before bedtime due to the initial stimulation.
However, once the body high takes over, it is goodnight! Your limbs feel heavy, and you will struggle to keep your eyes open. This sounds like an ideal scenario for individuals with insomnia.
Interestingly, you could try Face Off OG to ward off fatigue for a short period. However, it is perhaps better to use it in the evening to reduce any feelings of stress. The sedation it causes might also prove helpful if you have chronic pains and aches.
Possible Side Effects of the Face Off OG Strain
As is the case with most cannabis strains, the Face Off OG strain could cause dry eyes and cottonmouth. It might also cause dizziness and mild headaches amongst novices. Please note that it will eventually result in a feeling of sedation. Make sure you don’t have any important tasks to complete before you start using this strain.
