Emperor OG from Cali Kush Farms via OG Express on 10/16/19. No testing info available. Purchased 5 grams for $40 on a first time patient deal. Knowing that I’m ever on the hunt new sources of fire, my fellow reviewer @cannicorner (on instagram) recommended OG Express, and I’m really glad he did. The nugs in this batch are huge beautiful light green boulders with dark green lilts that contrast gorgeously with fiery reddish orange pistils that cluster in tight bunches in some spots while stretching out and reaching across the tiny canyons running through the bud in others. All coated in a healthy frosting of triches that feels like sticky crumbs on the fingers once you break the nug down.
The nose out of the bag is a mix of pungent fuel and a delicious citrus backed sweetness. On breaking open the nug I pick up on the same scent but the fuel aspect is ramped up slightly. When breaking it down by hand the smell over all amplifies with that sweet citrus stepping up to the foreground and wrestling with that strong fuel for center stage. The inhale is smooth and I detect that fuel and sweet lemonish taste on both the way in and out. The headchange comes on quick and has a nice thwap up top. I decided to give this a shot as a wake and bake and found myself near instantly spaced out and lost in my thoughts. In the times I was present I experienced a bit of cognitive lock and had a hard time finding the right words or expressions while in conversation. However, as time passed I found myself fully engaged in the game I was playing and not losing focus or having a hard time remembering what I was doing. I was left with a pleasant couch locked feeling without getting heavy eyed and feeling like I needed a nap. That said, when smoking at night, Emporer OG definitely put me straight to bed more than a few times. It’s a fantastic indica, a solid OG that checks all the boxes, and one I’d have no hesitation in visiting again when I’m in the market for a heavier night time smoke. Excellent work to the folks at Cali Kush Farms and OG Express! I’ll definitely be back for more.
