[Review] - Cannabis Flower: Gog & Magog

Gog & Magog is a mysterious strain with unknown genetic origins and THC levels.  Information on this strain is sorely lacking online--it only has 13 reviews on Leafly & most well-known weed sites don't offer more than a paragraph on it.  This is one of the main reasons I decided to do a review on it.  It was developed by an Israeli supplier and got its odd sounding name from characters in the Bible & Quran.  Gog is an indica-dominant (80/20) strain recommended for pain, sleep and glaucoma.  

Suppliers Tikun Olam, which means "repair the world" in Hebrew, are leaders of government-regulated research on cannabis strains based in Israel.  According to their website, they've built the world's largest medical cannabis treatment database with 20,000 patient records, which is pretty impressive.  Gog & Magog is one of these strains.  But even their own website doesn't include anything about this strain!   The plot thickens...

As with the other samples I picked up on this run, there are no THC or CBD percentages on this strain.  So just more mystery in that regard.  The gram came in one big fat frosty nug that smells like a typical indica:  rank & earthy but not too pungent.  Not much to write home about in the smell department but pretty attractive to the eye.  She breaks up nicely, if somewhat reluctantly.  These strains could use more drying and curing for sure--all of them.  

The effects are nice.  Just nice.  Long-lasting and potent but not in an overpowering way.  I feel chill and happy but not giggly or euphoric nor overly hungry.  Just a good middle-of-the-road indica stone.  I wasn't in too great a mood when I lit up due to PMS so I'll have to do another run to get an accurate read, but for now nothing is standing out about this strain as unique or mind-blowing.  I'd compare it to Purple Punch or Papaya Cake in that regard.  I'd suggest it if you wanna try a rare indica with more sedating properties.  It didn't make ME tired but indicas tend not to.  

Overall I give Gog & Magog a 4.7 of 5 stars for bag appeal, price & potency.  Give it a whirl if you're in the market for a nighttime strain or something for pain, anxiety or stress.  I wish more was known about its origins, THC/CBD content and other stats but I suppose that's part of the allure for some folks.  🎵 {Cue Unsolved Mysteries theme} 🎵
