We’ve been happy with the indica strains we’ve reviewed from Tantalus so far… particularly their LA Kush Cake. So now seemed like a good time to test a sativa and see if they’re on the same level.
Tantalus’ Pacific OG is a sativa-dominant hybrid of Goji OG and was originally created by crossing Nepali OG and Snow Lotus. Nepali OG (sometimes called Nepali Kush) is a classic strain known for conical-shaped buds and a strong earthy aroma. Not much of a surprise this pairs well with Snow Lotus, a plant known for a distinct black cherry aroma and subtle undertones of black liquorice.
So how does Pacific OG from Tantalus Labs smoke?
Check our review, rating and photos below.
The product arrived in an industry standard white plastic container with resealable top. Opening the lid immediately released a strong aroma that was unmistakable. Pacific OG from Tantalus Labs has a very strong earthy almost compost-like stench combined with a herbal dank undertones. The Nepali OG component of this strain comes through intensely to overpower all other smells.
This was probably the least visually appealing strain we’ve seen from Tantalus so far. Once Pacific OG was released from the white container, it was clearly fluffy-looking and semi-dense with very few brown hairs. Even the uniform green is like that of an unwanted vegetable and seems to only be lightly speckled with trichomes. The appearance is not unappealing but also not memorable.
Pacific OG (at least this version) had a flavour profile that mirrored the smell almost identically. From start to end this one had a very strong dank earthy flavour with an herbal sprinkle near the end. We found it enjoyable but quite harsh on the throat. Overall the flavour was what we expected.
Pacific OG from Tantalus Labs is decent product. However this one was not the high quality we’ve come to expect from them (see their LA Kush Cake and Sky Pilot review) even though this product is a sativa with a very low price point. The high was felt most strongly through both body and mind alike – a kind of furry all over feeling like wearing a costume. Expect to feel more energized then vegged. So if you’re looking for an affordable satvia strain then Tantalus’ Pacific OG is one to consider.
