Phantom OG is a cross of Phantom Cookies X OG Kush, bred by Barneys Farm. It combines two strains with mysterious origins, and the result packs quite the punch.
This is episode 8 in our 2021 strain review series. You can catch up with previous episodes on our dedicated strain review page here.
Characterised by pine cone-shaped buds, Phantom OG’s appearance reminds me of the look of OG Kush – it is a hybrid strain and has good trichome coverage, plus wild-looking leaf bases which jut about seemingly at random.
The sample I had for the review was bone dry without any stickiness. It had been given a light hand trim with some leaf still on the sample. It wasn’t branded with its own artwork or a glass jar.
The aroma of Phantom OG is pleasant – myrcene-dominant, earthy, a bit gassy and piney.
The sample wasn’t particularly aromatic but gave off a nice wooded spice aroma in addition to the notes described above, and then the sample became more skunky when I ground it up.
Taste + Smoking Experience
The Phantom OG’s flavour is above average, and again myrcene dominant. Woody, spicy and earthy notes with hints of MOAB.
However, due to the dryness of my sample I found that the bowls could be a little on the hot side. Despite this, the ash burnt white and the flower tasted clean.
This strain delivers an interesting high, kicking off with a somewhat energetic and inspirational buzz, before mellowing into a deep chill – one hour after smoking this one you might not want to do much!
I found the multi-wave high rather pleasant, but am glad I was at home the first time I went in heavy on this one. as it left me very chilled.
Overall, the Phantom OG is a good strain, but the sample I smoked wasn’t in the best condition. That being said, the flower was clean and the genetics were great, leading to an overall enjoyable experience.
