El Chapo OG is a potent indica strain out of California that smells of rich earth and pine. With dense jade popcorn buds that exhibit a shimmering coat of trichomes, this strain is visually striking and worth keeping on display. Its effects are initially stunning and settle on the body as carefree relaxation. El Chapo OG is preferred near the end of the day as its effects can become rather sedating with continued use.

This sample looks like an OG strain – the colour is light green mottled with darker spots and almost red-golden pistils that cover the bud and are more visible in the close-up shots than when it’s sitting in front of me.
It’s been given a reasonable trim job and also has good trichome coverage, although the sample doesn’t sparkle in the light.
This sample has piney and earthy notes, with a bit of the OG power apparent even before the buds are broken.
Breaking the sample apart, I get a delicious pungency and OG scent coming out of the bud. This smells great!
I also get some floral, sweet notes from El Chapo OG, but the pine notes are the most apparent scent once the bud has been ground up
This week I’m using the Weed Star Wasabi-line bong to consume the El Chapo OG sample for this review.
Loading this into my bong and taking a hit, I get some taste coming through without much intensity – there’s no acridity to the smoke, allowing me to finish this without difficulty.
It’s got the taste of clean and cured weed, but this El Chapo doesn’t have the gassy profile I was expecting after smelling the sample. Yes, I get a bit of pine and it is sweet, but I’m still a bit disappointed with the taste of this, as it is lacking the OG I was expecting.
