Ruxton (Sour OG) Strain Review (Broken Coast)

The expectations are automatically higher when the product’s price is higher than its competition, which goes for pretty much everything. After trying out this  Broken Coast Cannabis flower I was very satisfied overall, and you’ll be able to tell after going through this  Ruxton strain review.

Although it was slightly more Sativa dominant (70% Sativa, 30% Indica), this is a hybrid cultivar. The  THC levels fluctuate between 17% and 27%, this batch that I tried out specifically was on the lower end at  19% THC  and 0% CBD; however, the THC percentage is nothing to scoff at; it will most definitely get you lifted!

Ruxton is what Broken Coast named it. However, the actual strain here is Sour OG, which is a cross of two of the most popular strains on the planet, Sour Diesel and OG Kush. The dominant terpene is caryophyllene, but the profile is quite complex and includes myrcene, limonene, linalool, and humulene.

Below is a detailed breakdown of Ruxton:

  • Lineage: Sour Diesel x OG Kush
  • Type: Sativa-dominant
  • Potency: 17-27% THC
  • Terpene Profile: Caryophyllene, myrcene, limonene, linalool, and humulene
  • Packaging Details: Packaged on 11/20/2019 and tested/reviewed on 02/23/2020, exactly 95 days after being packaged.
  • Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $46.30 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada ($13.23/gram) 

Appearance: 3/5

I had to unstick the fluffy buds that were all stuck together in their nice little container that also stands out in itself; unsticking buds from themselves are delightful. There was a total of 6 nugs in the container, so no popcorn nuggets, which is always a plus.

The weed is of a dark green shade with light green spots, with some messy dark orange pistils sticking out. The trichomes on this weed push it over the top; the fluffy buds are completely covered in them, hence the stickiness. Although they do not add humidity pouches in their containers, there was absolutely no dryness issues.

The con here is the number of leaves and stems, but believe me; I’ve seen way worse.

Aroma: 4.5/5

When it comes to the aroma of this strain, you can definitely smell the profile of both its “parents,” you get the diesel, and lemony Sour Diesel smells mixed with the “kushy” and piney aroma that OG Kush emits. It seems like every time I took a whiff, there was a new smell that I discovered.

It’s very aggressive, and in a good way; the entire room smells when you open the container.

Flavor: 4.5/5

The flavor is as pungent as the aroma of this flower; on the inhale, you get a kushy, diesel taste, which isn’t subtle at all. There are some sweet and lemony notes on the exhale and the aftertaste; it’s a very enjoyable taste.

This weed’s freshness makes the entire smoking experience exceptional; you get thick, white, and smooth smoke from this weed.

Effects: 3.5/5

I’ve seen some consumer reviews on this strain where they had tried batches reaching up to 28% THC, this one was on the lower end at 19%, yet the high was somewhat of an unexpected slap in the face!

My tolerance is quite high, so I was surprised at how strong this was, a head and body high that completely slowed me down; after about an hour, the munchies and the pasties kicked in, and then it was straight to bed.

This aspect is always subjective, but I’ve smoked it a few times now, and I wouldn’t call it the most functional weed. It’s great if you want that “aggressive” high that stops you in your tracks.

Overall: 4/5

Another excellent product from  Broken Coast Cannabis, just like  Galiano Strain, was a very enjoyable strain; the high price tag was once again worth it. I would recommend this to anybody that wants to try really high-quality, flavorful, and great-smelling weed.

Beginners, beware, this will get you baked like a potato, so if you want to start slow, then I’d recommend trying something a little less potent, although I haven’t really heard of consumers getting that anxiety/paranoia feeling that some other strong strains give you.

If you’ve tried out some Ruxton, let me know what you think in the reviews! 


  • Trainwreck: Trainwreck is a stronger alternative for those seeking a more intense experience. It has a spicy and earthy flavor profile, delivers a potent sativa-dominant high, and offers a more energetic and cerebral effect compared to Ruxton.
  • Chemdawg: Chemdawg offers a similar pungent aroma and potent effects like Ruxton, but with a slightly higher THC content. It provides a balanced hybrid experience.
  • OG Kush: As one of Ruxton’s parent strains, OG Kush shares similarities in flavor and aroma. It delivers a relaxed and euphoric high, providing a balanced experience.
