Marathon OG from The Cure Company via Super Clinik on 12/04/19. THC tested out to 25.56%. Purchased for $25 plus tax on a first time patient deal. Price is normally $50 plus tax. The Cure Company has been on my radar for a while now and after having great experience with their Apricot Gelato, I was curious about their flagship strain, Marathon OG. The surface of these semi dense buds are mostly comprised of a bright lime green with forest green accents and creamy orange pistils all doused in a generous layer of yellowish-white triches.
The nose out of the jar hits me as a classic OG scent crossed with lemonade. It’s primarily fuel but the sweet citrus notes are very loud and steal focus as a musty scent fills out the background. When busting open a bud, a sweet candy gas takes center stage and pushes that citrus to the back, as it’s joined by just a hint of mint. Breaking the nug down by hand amps the citrus back up to equal levels with that sweet fuel creating a lemon candy gas with that mint still kicking around in the background. It also leaves a nice stickiness on the tips of your fingers. The dry pull of the jay really reminds me of Zkittles in the sense that it has a citrus candy taste but it leans more orange as opposed to lemon lime. It hits me sort of like an orange flavored vitamin C chewable. The inhale is smooth and I pick up on a sweet candy taste with a bit of fuel while on the exhale it has that same sweet gas but leaves a pleasant acidic lemon rind after taste on the tongue. I was lucky enough to be gifted an MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial and decided to take a test flight with the Marathon OG. The experience really solidified my thoughts on the flavor as I got a surprising and extremely powerful lemon fuel tang on my first draw. The headchange has a nice smack but leaves you able to think and focus without issue. Initially I felt floaty without feeling spacey, there’s a pressure that builds behind the eyes and in the forehead, but that haziness doesn’t interfere with your thought process like it often can. Over time there is a heaviness that sets in and you won’t feel like doing much more than kicking back and watching some TV. I’d say this is a great OG to start and/or end and evening with. For the ticket I was lucky enough to cop this for I would pick it up again all day. However, at the normal rate I might be slightly hesitant depending on what else is on offer, but Marathon OG would definitely be a worthy contender for my top shelf dollar. Great job to the team at The Cure Company, you are doing excellent work and I really can’t wait to get my hands on more of what you’re putting out there. (Sweet Thang definitely has my attention).
