Flowers of 303 OG are on the smaller side, clinging together in dense, popcorn-shaped clusters. These buds, which tend towards a chunky, roughly spherical shape, have the dense internal structure associated with other indicas. The tightly-curled leaves are a mossy green, with many phenotypes showing off deep shades of purple as well; these striking purple hues come about thanks to the presence of pigments called anthocyanins in the plants’ genetics. Finally, a sprinkling of translucent white trichomes gives these flowers a slightly icy appearance from afar.
When properly cured, flowers of 303 OG have a powerful citrus-tinged scent. A closer olfactory inspection picks up on some toasty, nutty undertones as well. Grinding, meanwhile, releases some rich notes of earth and pine. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, 303 OG gives off a smooth and easily palatable smoke. On the exhale, this smoke’s flavor is sweet orange, undercut by the mellow aroma of damp soil.
Like many other predominantly indica varieties, 303 OG can take a while before plunging users into its potent physical high. Between 10 and 15 minutes after ingestion, smokers may feel a weighty sensation in the head along with a faint feeling of pressure around the eyes and temples. Some feelings of mental stimulation may follow, but they tend to inspire rambling daydreams rather than helping users to exert any powers of concentration or analysis. Additionally, 303 OG can affect sensory perception, leading to psychedelic effects like auditory or visual distortions as well as an intangible sense of time passing more slowly. These trippy properties can be pushed to the max by pairing them with moody enhancements like a favorite playlist or an engaging movie.
As the strain’s mental properties intensify, they’re accompanied by a progressively powerful feeling of physical relaxation. A tingle at the back of the neck can begin to work its way down through the core and limbs, pulverizing any long-standing muscular tension and facilitating deep and easy breathing. Within an hour or so, this relaxation can become so strong as to pin users down where they sit, dissolving any prior stress into the background. 303 OG’s pleasant feelings of sloth can be a fun way to kick back with some smoke buddies, but you may find yourself wanting to savor this deep and luxurious high alone. Because of its very sedative effects, 303 OG is recommended for evening and nighttime consumption — or at least for use during a day when the user doesn’t have any demanding obligations.
