Paris OG Indica
Paris OG is a relatively rare medical strain, though it can be found in at least one Southern California medical marijuana dispensaries. It's an indica-heavy strain, though the exact ratio of sativa to indica isn't widely known. THC levels are said to be fierce, surpassing 19% in some tests, while CBD levels are considerably lower, less than 1%. That's much too low to recommend Paris OG as treatment for epileptics or other patients whose conditions require CBD. Instead, this strain is a useful means of treating depression, glaucoma and eye pressure, headaches, muscle spasms, and nausea. The full, heavy body high is calming and sleepy, so Paris OG is also good for insomnia, and it induces euphoria, happiness, and a tingly sensation. Expect a woody diesel smell with hints of flowers and pine needles, matched with a flavor of flowers, citrus, and pine. The nugs are huge with negatives rarely reported, but dry mouth and red eyes are usually the most likely. Though its name suggests French roots, Paris OG sells best in the American Southwest and Michigan. Paris OG offers what can be described as a creeper of a high. Several minutes after savoring its taste, smokers may detect a pressure around the temples -- this same feeling of cranial compression is exactly the side effect that gives parent strain Headband its name. As this bud takes over, users may feel their limbs become heavy with relaxation at the same time that their eyelids begin to droop. Paris OG’s physically relaxing effects may even be strong enough to bring about feelings of dissociation, making for a uniquely psychedelic experience. Smokers should not expect a cerebral increase in focus; instead, any mental stimulation arrives more in the form of a cloudy, dreamy mindset. Paris OG’s trippy vibes make it a great accompaniment to a favorite album or a moody, atmospheric movie. This strain is just the thing for winding down after a long day or week of work -- just beware of heavy couch-lock and the irresistible urge to sleep after you smoke a few more bowls. Because it is so sedative, Paris OG is best enjoyed in the early evening or as a treat just before bedtime.
