Lemon Garlic OG Strain Review (Robinsons)

Lemon Garlic OG strain review, main picture

For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Lemon Garlic OG that’s made by Robinsons. Now, this whole experience was different for me because this is a cultivar that IS NOT available in my home province, Quebec, so this was my first Ontario Cannabis Store experience. It was….interesting, I must say.

This Lemon Garlic OG is an Indica-dominant cultivar that came in with 18.2% THC (the range is 16%-22% THC) and an inconsiderable amount of CBD. The wallet felt this one, as it was the most expensive weed I’ve ever bought in the legal market. Was it worth it, though? That question is answered below. 

Lineage: Descendant of True OG

Terpene Profile: Beta-Caryophyllene, Humulene, Limonene and Linalool

Packaging Details: Packaged on 6/23, tested/reviewed on 7/23, exactly 30 days after.

Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $55.95 at Shoom in Niagara, Ontario, Canada. ($15.99/gram)

Appearance: 4/5

Before I even begin about the weed itself, glass containers over plastic containers any day of the week and twice on Sundays, so right away, this gets some brownie points from me as Robinsons containers are made of glass. 

Now when it comes to bag appeal, the first noticeable characteristic was how shiny each bud was as I held it up to the light, that my friends, is usually a good sign. I wasn’t wrong (take a look at the microscopic pics at the bottom of this review) the trichome glands were VERY intact, and that’s been somewhat rare in the legal market.

The humidity levels in the container were appropriate. It was at 55%, so even though the nugs felt somewhat dry, they actually weren’t, and you realize that as you start bidding up.

There were 5 medium nugs that made up the 3.5 grams, and they were perfectly trimmed and of a light green color with bright orange pistils, with that thick sheet of trichomes that I mentioned before. This is some VERY good-looking weed.  

Aroma: 2/5

I wanted garlic; I wanted lemon. I got….cheese. Underwhelming aroma for me; not only was it subtle, but I really didn’t get much other than pepper and cheese, mostly, with a slight touch of citrus. After bidding up the weed, it seems like the caryophyllene really starts to dominate, feels like you’re about to roll up some pepper.

The terps were alive here for sure, but the aroma was slightly below average for me. (Remember, these are opinions).

If you want a citrusy aroma but not overpowering, try the Sapphire Cookies strain, which is also an Indica-dominant cultivar.

Flavor: 1.5/5

My least favorite aspect of this Lemon Garlic OG strain review was definitely the flavor because, well, there was none. Everything was completely muted on the palate; on the exhale, I was trying to get something, anything, but all I got was nothingness.

I know that smoothness is more important than flavor for most, but if I want both, am I asking for too much? I don’t believe so, hence the low score (the smoke was smooth here).

Effects: 3.5/5

This Indica-dominant strain gives off some indica vibes for sure, and I wouldn’t smoke this in the early hours of the day. Although it’s not the most “clear-headed” type of high, there was no anxiety/paranoia present which sometimes happens with strong indica strains. THC levels being under 20% probably helped with that.

The peak hit before I even finished the joint, but my eyes got really heavy only about an hour after smoking. This one is good for the end of the day, once the TV is on and you’re in the comfort of your own home.

Here’s one that’s slow, smooth, and sensational… It’s the OG Brulee. Check out my review of what I call “happy weed”!

Overall: 3/5

This is an above-average strain, and there is no debating that whatsoever. I would recommend this to beginners and everyday users as well, only to SPOIL yourself…once. This Lemon Garlic OG is fine, pretty good even, but nowhere close to being worth $15.99/gram.

That price is actually somewhat ridiculous for flower, but I don’t decide that the market does. In my opinion, Black Cherry Punch strain is a better option with a lower price.
