Date Acquired: July 30, 2011
Looks: Mostly small, tight deep green conical shaped nugs with a crusted layer trichs.

* I always crack a grin when I see Skywalker OG on the menu. Having it several times, it has become a favorite strain of mine. But, it's been a few months since I have medicated with Luke himself. Actually, the last time I had it was December 2010.
So, on my very first bowl from my refill, it was HEAVY! It put me straight to bed. I am usually up until 1:00 - 2:00am. The first night medicating with Skywalker OG, I found myself crawling to bed before 10:00pm. That is EARLY for me. But a full shutdown and long good night's sleep is just what my body needed.
Skywalker OG is a heavy Indica strain consistently couch locking me during evening and late night sessions. I did a Sunday morning "wake and bake" session and this strain basically put me in a lazy, "whatever" kind of mood. I had a stress free Sunday which was very pleasant.
Skywalker OG is a very smooth smoking strain for how heavy it hits you. I was able to take nice smooth rips and for those times I needed a little extra, I was also able to take deep hits with very little "cough" factor. This strain is stoney and bit euphoric too. I felt a bit "drunk" like a few times as it felt as if I was swaying when walking.
This strain's biggest benefit for me is the pain relieving qualities on top of releasing stress. When in some serious pain, a strain like Skywalker OG is one I want to have on hand. A bowl of this does me just as good as a Vicodin or "narcotic" pain pill.
During my last marijuana nugget of Skywalker OG, I actually medicated after doing a 7:00am 5K morning jog. Taking a week off from the gym, I decided to jog 5Ks for that same week. The first day, I was in tremendous knee and neck/upper back pain (it's been half a year since I jogged outside so, got to work up those "running muscles" again) and bowl of Skywalker OG light sabered that pain away. Being this was in the morning, I was a bit groggy. But, my pain was gone and since I had a good amount of morning caffeine in my system (~200mg), I was "slow" but, not couched.
I have never had a bad bowl or batch of Skywalker OG regardless of what collective I've obtained it from. It is just an overall solid strain that performs time after time again.
I love feelin' that force... probably why Skywalker OG is one top favorite OG's!
