Shiny new hotness grabs fleeting headlines, but the one standard is that quality and consistency never go out of style.
This is the entire raison d’etre of the Los Angeles flower brand True Classic, which built its entire business on highlighting one strain – the legendary LA indica powerhouse True OG from the OG Kush lineage – and solidifying it as a landmark flavor of the city’s weed scene.
Crafting their cultivation around what they say is a “rare, legacy cut” of True OG, True Classic aims to bring that beat back to the LA indoor scene of 20-plus years ago, down to the Dodgers branding in blue and stark white.
“It’s that true ‘90s cut of OG, so it brings you back,” said Jared Kesselman, the brand’s Director of Sales and Distribution. “We love it. It’s what we smoke.”
The love for that classic OG character shows through. The sweet pine, citrus and gas fills the room when you peel open a half-ounce bag to unsheathe the frosty nugs. The fuel mingles with a hint of earthy fruit and tickles the back of the throat after a draw.
The extreme chill effect is immediate. This is that fire flower that makes you sink into your seat and forget anything and everything that’s bothering you, both physically and mentally. Perfect for the end of a difficult day, or after a hard workout.
Word is that True Classic plans to release a second strain as part of its core line in the coming months. Kesselman says they want to keep the identity of that cut a secret for now. Until then, we’ll keep smoking on the True OG and sinking back into the sofa.
