Strain Review: White Fire OG #5
Known for its uplifting effects, White Fire OG #5 is commonly used by qualified medical marijuana patients as a daytime medicine. Lacey Macri explains why this sativa-dominant strain has become world-renowned in potency, consistency, and popularity.
The medical marijuana industry is booming and as a result, it is recruiting more and more professionals in the fields of activism, cultivation, investment, retail, medicine, politics, law and pretty much any other field that supports it. The undeniable health benefits of cannabis as a medicine continue to push through the stigmas, as America’s youth grows into the professional world.
One such individual, Tony Trees of Green Label Recreational Cannabis, describes one of his top-grown strains, White Fire OG #5, also known as WiFi OG, to have significant health benefits on both the physical and mental levels.
Origin & Genetics
Created by the well-known canna-sseur, OG Raskal, the genetics of White Fire OG #5 come from a cross between Fire OG and The White. Bred out of sunny Southern California, this sativa-dominant strain has become world-renowned in potency, consistency and popularity. This strain will yield attributes from both parent strains, such as vertical stretch reminiscent of Fire OG, and intense resin production like that of The White.
Tony’s particular phenotype tests in the upper 20s to low 30s in THC-A composition. This is almost double the THC composition of many other well-known sativa-dominant strains. His most recent documented testing comes in at 31.53% THC-A from Washington State Steep Hill labs, which marks the highest recorded THC-A composition at this particular lab in the past six months.
Indicative by its name, the nugs of White Fire OG #5 are caked in crystal-white trichomes and “have the trifecta of taste, look and smell,” as Tony describes. Because of the high terpene content in these buds regularly testing at or above 4%, users will find that White Fire OG #5 is rich with resin and essential oils, and superior in color, aroma and flavor. The buds of this strain are typically compact, but dense and appear light green in color. In keeping with its parent strains, this strong sativa produces pungent aromas, rich with earthy and sour undertones.
Well-known for its uplifting effects, White Fire OG #5 is commonly used by qualified medical marijuana patients as a daytime medicine. For those suffering from anxiety, depression, cancer, glaucoma, pain and appetite loss, this medicine will have positive benefits to help treat these symptoms and conditions. For patients engaged in social or creative activities, this is a superior strain as it is cerebrally focused and pure enough that it won’t interrupt your day or cause a distracted attention-span.
Although Tony Trees knows this strain inside and out and could virtually pick it out of a crowd, his true expertise lies in its cultivation. In order to deliver the end product to consumers in its highest-quality form, Tony adheres to strict protocols to ensure the consistency of the medicine every time. To avoid the possibility of foreign contaminants such as molds, diseases and insect infestations, Tony says he prefers to grow this strain indoors “where the closed growing environment can be optimized to produce more potent, immaculate looking flowers.”
The team at Green Label uses the popular growing technique referred to as deep water culture, or DWC, where the roots of these plants are suspended indefinitely in a container filled with nutrient-rich water. This particular strain roots quickly and robustly, preparing it for a stretch during early to mid-flower that can reach heights of up to 8 ft. tall! Once it’s reached its full height maturation, giant buds begin to develop, and then the caking begins.
For patients in Washington state looking to find this medicine, please contact Green Label Recreational Cannabis for a list of collectives that stock it. In the near future, White Fire OG #5 will be distributed across the entire state, as its effectiveness continues to propagate believers.
