Larry OG Strain Review - Everything You Need to Know & More!

larry og strain

Larry OG or Lemon Larry OG comes from the Ocean Grown or OG family. These strains were all created in Orange County, California. Larry OG is an indica cross between two incredibly famous OG strains. It may be indica-dominant, but just like most of these strains, it also has a cerebral buzz. The effects are not overwhelming, which can make for a much more pleasant smoke for those of you who may be newer to the cannabis scene.

This strain has many different names because of its taste and because of the fact that it was bred from a diverse pool of strains. You may also hear it be called: Larry Skywalker, Lemon Larry, Larry OG Kush, Legendary Larry, Lemon Larry OG Kush, or Larry’s Lemonade.

Larry OG strain: indica or sativa?

This strain is definitely an indica-dominant hybrid. You shouldn’t expect only indica effects, as the cerebral effects do creep into you a little bit. This indica-dominant hybrid won the Cannabis Cup for the best medical indica strain in 2014, which is a stamp of quality. It’s not overly potent, and Larry OG can definitely be used for something like aiding sleep. Larry OG also gave birth to strains such as Purple Punch strain, which is itself a very popular strain.

Larry OG genetics

Larry OG is a cross between two legendary OG strains:


These two legendary indica-dominant hybrids are brought together to make what can only be described as a dankenstein strain. Dankenstein strains are crosses between two or more dank strains to create one freakishly tasty or potent (or both) strain. In this case, Larry OG is more focused on the flavor and also the medicinal benefits of an indica strain.

Larry OG THC percentage

The average indica strain has around 12% THC inside it, but Larry OG tests at 21% on average. This is pretty crazy, but some phenotypes even test at 24.5%. This is very high, but it’s not the highest possible. Despite this, the effects aren’t really considered to be very potent. This is because it’s overwhelmingly an indica, meaning it’s hard for you to get too high from this strain.

Larry OG price

The seeds are available online. What does this mean? Well, it normally means that the price is lower than if the strain was clone-only. As such, in North American dispensaries, you’re likely to pay anywhere between $8-15 a gram. However, in Amsterdam you’re likely to pay a little bit more, as this strain is considered to be a boutique strain. You’ll probably pay around $15-20 a gram in a decent Amsterdam coffee shop. A lot of the time they offer strains that they may call Larry OG, but it in fact is something else entirely. This is a problem because of the fact that Amsterdam doesn’t actually have legal weed; rather it’s decriminalized. If you go into the reputable Dam coffee shops, it’s a different matter.


Larry OG taste

Larry OG is also called Lemon Larry for one simple reason… it’s a lemony strain! If you didn’t already know, the terpene inside lemon strains (at least the true lemon strains) is actually the same thing that gives lemons their smell. As such, you should definitely enjoy this strain through a flower vaporizer. Please ensure that you grind your weed first, as this allows the flavor to be fully released. Larry OG’s taste profile is:

  • Pine
  • Lemon
  • Citrus


Larry OG oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc. 

Another advantage of using a flower vaporizer is that you can actually use the already vaped bud (AVB)  to create edibles quickly and easily. Take your AVB and mix it with either a fat or oil. Once you’ve done this, either eat it as it is or cook it into something else. Please be wary, you may not be expecting these to be potent, but they’re actually incredibly potent. If you don’t want to use a vaporizer for this, or if you don’t have one, you have to first decarboxylate your weed.

You can also make any strain you like into concentrates etc. This is a much more complicated process and can be considered dangerous. We recommend exercising extreme caution if you do attempt this yourself. We have a guide to making Butane Hash Oil here. If you have the chance you could also travel to North America, where many dispensaries will sell this strain in concentrate format. Larry OG makes a good concentrate because of its flavor. You can find an example of Larry Wax in the picture below.

Larry OG General Effects
Larry OG Medical Effects
Larry OG Effects
Happy 100% Stress Relief 100%
Cottonmouth 100%
Relaxed 95% Depression 90%
Anxiety 80%
Focused 55%
Pain Relief 90%
Dizziness 40%
Uplifted 50% Headaches 50% Headaches 35%
Euphoric 45%  Inflammation 50%
Lethargy 30%

As you can see, Larry OG can both treat and cause headaches. This may seem strange, but you’re only likely to get a headache if you’re not drinking plenty of water or if you smoke Larry OG all day. If you find yourself getting headaches regardless, then perhaps heavy indicas just don’t suit you. You can also easily treat stress and pain with the highly sedating effects of Larry OG.

Larry OG flowering time

Larry OG is a fast grower that can grow completely within 7-9 weeks. This is very fast and will mean you don’t have to sit and watch this strain grow before you can roll it up and smoke it.

Larry OG Growing tips 

This strain has a thick stem with a good plant structure and a short, bushy growth. This makes it perfect for an indoor grow, but can also be grown outdoors and doesn’t need particularly high temperatures.

Larry OG seeds

The seeds aren’t that easy to find, but you can find them from some online sellers. The Cali Connection sells its own version of Larry OG which has further been crossed with Tahoe OG. The original Larry OG seeds could be difficult to find, however. Some seedbanks may claim to be selling Larry OG, but whether they’re truly this strain is difficult to say for certain.

Larry OG yield 

Larry OG has a large yield. It can grow up to 6 ounces per foot squared. This makes it a perfect strain for growers.

What is the Larry OG strain?

Larry OG is a cross between two legendary Ocean Grown strains, SFV OG and OG Kush. The resulting indica-dominant hybrid isn’t overly potent but has enough effects to leave you feeling incredibly relaxed and can help with stress and sleep. However, this dankenstrein strain was created purely for its taste, and as such should be enjoyed with a flower vape. It’s a relatively easy to grow strain with a high yield.

  • Easy to grow
  • High yield
  • Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Seeds are difficult to find, but not impossible
  • Can be grown indoors and outdoors
  • Not overly potent, but does have some strong relaxing effects
  • Can help with sleep and stress relief
