If you’ve ever wrecked a car or just wrecked yourself after a long night with cheap beer, you know that wrecking things usually isn’t a good thing. When it comes to a strain like Daywrecker OG, your first reaction might be “I don’t want to wreck my day.” Fear not; Daywrecker OG, despite the somewhat ominous name, won’t wreck your day, but it sure does a damn fine job turning it into night in a hurry. As an indica, it’s only a logical assumption that sleep will be the result at the terminus of your smoking session, but to learn a little bit more about what makes Daywrecker OG such an effective indica, you need to know a touch about its genetics. If you didn’t know already, you can make a safe assumption that any strain that has an “OG” in its name is alluding to the fact that it has OG Kush in its heritage. Regardless of what the OG may mean to you, Original Gangster or perhaps Ocean Grown, there is no demarcating the effectiveness of the indica-dominant OG Kush strain. OG Kush is a perfect backbone for splicing together a powerful strain to knock you out after a hard day’s work. The genetics become opaque when it comes time to pin down the origin of the “Daywrecker” in Daywrecker OG. While the genetics may be rather ambiguous, Daywrecker is a strain that comes with many different names. But whether you’re calling it Original Diesel, Underdawg, Headband, or Weasel Diesel, Daywrecker is a powerful indica-dominant strain that flowers with a reckless abandon and produces high THC concentrations like a champ. It’s pretty easy to assume when you bring OG Kush and Daywrecker together into one strain, you’re going to have a good night’s sleep.
I picked up my Daywrecker OG from Chronic Therapy’s brand new small batch grow. The new limited availability grows at Chronic Therapy in Wheat Ridge, Colorado include some of the best and most notoriously difficult to grow strains, including Girl Scout Cookies, Bubba Kush, HarleSin, Gorilla Glue, Sour Diesel, and Cheisel. This brand new shelf has a higher price tag attached to it with grams for $20, eighths for $65, and quarters for $120 plus tax, but it’s well worth it for the quality and care that was put into cultivation. If you want to recapture the flavors, smells, and of course the crystally trichomes that are sometimes lost in mass cultivation, you need to get yourself down to Chronic Therapy and try out a strain from their limited reserve. As I left with my sample of Daywrecker OG, one of the employees, Ryan, warned me that the strain lives up to its name. Don’t forget, if you’re a Colorado resident you always receive 10% off your bud purchase.
Daywrecker OG :: Appearance | Smell:
The time came to take a peek at my Daywrecker OG and to prepare myself for the inevitable day-wrecking that would ensue. Aesthetically, Daywrecker OG is a rather unassuming strain, while caked with trichomes and bristling with hairs, the leaves themselves are a very standard “marijuana green” color. The nuggets themselves are extremely dense, which is shocking considering the fact that they look like they’ve been treated with a great deal of care during the cultivation and curing process. The smell is rather unique. While a good deal of dankness is provided from the OG Kush heritage, a rather nebulous sweet fruit odor sneaks its way into the mix when you really take a deep whiff. I would equate the smell to a heavy grape odor on the verge of being wine scented. A Light floral smell finishes off the experience, giving the strain an odd pine/flower theme that makes me feel like I’m standing in a meadow.
Daywrecker OG :: Smoke | Effect:
Loading a clean glass one-hitter, I lit my hemp wick up and let combustion perform the next step in my reviewing process. Daywrecker OG was extremely tasty. While the fruitiness from its odor didn’t translate into any flavor, it did however add a rich nuttiness to the smoke. Daywrecker OG isn’t for the faint of heart; besides the smoke being extremely crisp, the overall feel was thick and earthy. If I were to equate this strain to the beer world it would definitely be an imperial stout, or something equally strong, dark, and rich. I must say that it’s a very rich pleasant smoke. I can’t help but think that the heavy flavor is there simply as a warning sign for how powerful the effects will be. In minutes Daywrecker OG hit me. While I wouldn’t say that it was a complete fog that it left me in, I knew in moments just how powerful the body effect was going to be. It wasn’t long before my mouth was dry and my eyelids were drooping lazily. I recall sitting for several minutes literally staring at a wall. While I slowly started to slide into a state of semi-consciousness, I was jolted back to reality by my stomach protesting that I’d smoked an indica strain and hadn’t filled it. I thanked myself for having the prescience to prepare banana nut muffins before smoking any Daywrecker OG, popped a couple muffins in my mouth to sate my minor munchies, and proceeded with the only logical course of action – lying down on the couch.
It’s not that often that I find a strain that actually makes me want to sleep. While I’m used to a plethora of indicas that make me groggy or unaware, it’s a rarity that one has me falling on my face. While the munchies I felt from Daywrecker OG weren’t the most powerful I’ve experienced, the sleeping and calming effects were incredibly intense. As far as pain relief goes, I can only assume that Daywrecker OG is an effective choice by the numbness that it instilled in my extremities. Besides the heavy CBD effects, this strain also got me really good ol’ fashioned high. It’s not hard to see why though with a 25.4% THC content. Regardless of the psychoactive effects, Daywrecker OG is one of the best sleep-aid strains I’ve ever had the fortune of trying; believe me when I tell you, this one is a doozy. If you’re looking for strain to induce appetite, Daywrecker OG could fit the bill, but from my experience, this strain is potentially best suited for getting you a restful night of sleep or maybe just watching an entire season of that show you’ve been meaning to catch up on. I won’t be held responsible though if you only make it through 1 episode before falling asleep in your bowl of popcorn.
