We know that the original Skywalker has about 15% THC and OG Kush has around 19% to 24% THC. So we’d say Skywalker OG has around 18% to 20% THC. Likewise, we’d say there’s around 1% CBD. Like the force, this strain has a light side. What many people really love about this strain is that it acts like a Sativa on the mind and an Indica on the body. In other words, you do get the high you expect from this sort of level of THC. Instead of being pulled down completely into an Indica stone, your mind stays alert and reasonably functional and your body is completely relaxed.
Indoor growers could look to collect up to 600g/m2 in a sea-of-green set-up, otherwise up to 500g/m2 would be a reasonable expectation. Outdoor growers could look at as much as 1Kg of bud from each of their Skywalker OG plants. This difference can be accounted for by the fact that Skywalker OG has a growing range like that of OG Kush. Which is between about 1 metre and about 3 metres, with plants grown indoors on the lower end of the range. Typically,plants with plenty of space outdoors make the most of it and stretch as far as they can. These plants can stay deceptively small for the first part of their growth cycle. Then they really shoot up during flowering.
Skywalker OG is a fast strain. Indoors it will be ready after just 8 to 9 weeks of flowering and outdoors you’ll be collecting your harvest around the end of September. Outdoor growers not only have to ensure their plants will get sufficient light, but also sufficient protection against any spells of bad weather. This strain is probably a bit big for the average balcony. But a sheltered wall would probably be a good option. You will also want to think about odour control. Indoors this means air filters are highly recommended. Outdoors, you will need to think about prevailing winds. This strain has a distinct touch of fuel in its aroma and your neighbours may not take kindly to having it blown straight in their direction.
There are only two key points to remember when growing this strain. The first is that these plants really will do their best to reach for the skies during the latter part of the growth cycle. You also need to remember that this strain is very much Indica dominant (85/15), so it will also spread itself outwards as well as upwards. It is vital to allow for this and to avoid the temptation to overfill your growing space (even outdoors). Since this will reduce ventilation and increase the likelihood of an attack of the dreaded mould. Which would be very ironic since this strain has excellent resistance to mould, diseases and pests. Courtesy of all the landrace genetics in its immediate background.
The second is to remember that landrace strains are used to fending for themselves. So they don’t usually need a lot of extra nutrients, so be careful not to overfeed your plants.
Skywalker OG it’s very similar to OG Kush with an oily, diesel base, balanced by the sweetness of citrus and menthol pine. Similar comments apply to the aroma, which might be stronger than you expect.
Skywalker OG looks good enough to be accepted into more respectable places than Mos Eisley spaceport. You get dense and chunky green nugs, brighten up by orange pistils and shiney, (space) crystal trichomes.
