Marshmallow OG is an indica dominant hybrid strain created through a cross of the classic OG Kush X an unknown strain. Although its second parent is unknown due to breeder secrecy, Marshmallow is thought to be a descendent of the Bubble Gum family because of its sickly sweet sugary flavor and mellow indica effects. Like its name suggests, Marshmallow has a super sweet candy flavor accented by nutty honey and a touch of fruitiness. The aroma is just as sweet, with a slightly pungent rotting marshmallow overtone that can be a little overwhelming to some upon exhaling. The Marshmallow high definitely hits the balanced hybrid sweet spot with indica heavy effects that are complemented by a nice cerebral high. It hits first in the forehead and behind the eyes with an uplifted euphoria that leaves you happy but totally hazy and a little out of it. As this high builds, it'll spread throughout the rest of your body in warming waves, leaving you with a tingly feeling from head to toe that numbs away any aches or pains. This will lull you into a state of complete relaxation, which pulls you down slowly into a hungry yet very sleepy state that almost always ends in a nice nap. Because of these effects and its moderate 14% average THC level, Marshmallow is perfect to treat insomnia, appetite loss, chronic pain, muscle spasms, and nausea. This bud has fluffy yet dense popcorn-shaped olive green nugs with rich purple undertones and hairs and a white frosty coating of milky crystal trichomes.

The initial smells and tastes of Marshmallow OG were interesting and memorable, but hard to pinpoint. The strain's effects were easier to recognize, though, and instantly impressed. While I wouldn't recommend Marshmallow OG before the hike or campsite setup, it's a prime choice for winding down before the sun sets, and the perfect filler for a Louisville Slugger-sized joint during a Sandlot-
Looks: Marshmallow OG is one of the sexier buds I've come across this year. Full, plump calyxes have dark streaks of olive and purple, which look like velvet underneath the thick sheen of trichomes.
Smell: Too pungent to dissect at first, Marshmallow OG's aroma showcased an uncommon and enjoyable mix of role players after my nostrils regained their bearings. Sharp notes of honey and mellow hints of vanilla created a sweet, creamy chaser to the heavy gas up front, with skunky, earthy smells rounding it out.
Flavor: Marshmallow OG's sweet and gassy characteristics combine to create something sharper than the smell implies, but hints of vanilla, herbal zest and a surprise nutty flavor give the taste that creamy-side users are looking for — though you might have to think that into existence with weaker versions.
Effects: Marshmallow OG somehow had me excitable and calm at the same time. I was more engaged in conversation and activities, but with a mellow disposition. Although strong on the eyes and extremely effective at making my stomach growl, the high was never disorienting, and always allowed me a couple of hours of focus and motivation before putting me out for good.
