SFV OG Overview
SFV OG, or San Fernando Valley OG, is named after its birthplace. Los Angeles locals cherish this California-born cultivar (strain) for its heavy sativa effects, traditional OG citrus flavor, and ability to brighten just about any mood. Based on feedback from West Coast natives, SFV OG is a happy-go-lucky kind of high that generally assists with body pain and annoying mental blocks.
The origins of SFV OG tend to cause some confusion. For one, many people think that SFV OG and SFV OG Kush are the same cultivars. The one-word difference between the two means that SFV OG is often mistakenly classified as an indica. To settle the confusion: SFV OG is a phenotype of OG Kush, while SFV OG Kush comes from crossbreeding Afghani with SFV OG. This alphabetic jumble is the main reason why so many internet sources wrongfully describe SFV OG.
Since SFV OG comes from OG Kush, pinpointing an exact birthdate is not easy. The number of phenotypes that have been cloned and crossbred from OG Kush is endless. Word-of-mouth stories say it arrived in California by the early 90s, but again, no one knows for sure. That said, a breeder by the name of Swerve supposedly developed SFV OG at The Cali Connection, a seed bank located in San Fernando Valley. Today, SFV OG can be found all over the West coast, but primarily in Los Angeles.
