BC BLACK TRIPLE OG REVIEW
BC Black Triple OG is a high-test hybrid building on the ever popular OG Kush. This flower has been treated to a truly holistic life cycle from the organic living soil to the in-house composted teas to the expert cure and the hand trim. If this was beef it would be Wagu!
Nice to see growers doing it right. The consumer experience is top notch from start to finish, and this flower gets a 4 out of 4…yes we’re calling this a QUAD!

Living Cannabis is an Indigenous cannabis farm in the North Okanagan, headed by master growers Amanda Renner and Mike Roy. This talented team grows in organic living soil and use many of the same regenerative gardening methods used by our small batch organic growers pre-regulation. Back in the day a friend told us she is a microbe farmer – if the microbial life in the soil is healthy, the cannabis will be great! Living Cannabis is of the same ilk. They brew compost teas and use cover crops to ensure their soil is healthy. The flowers are hang dried low and slow to maintain the terps and moisture content, and hand trimmed to preserve the integrity of the buds. Village is happy to see some old school growing expertise coming through to our shelves!
BC Black Triple OG is bred by Exotic Genetix, and originating from Florida. This heavy hitting Indica is best for experienced consumers. Triple OG gets its name from being a cross of three standout indica flowers. This mix gives us an 80:20 indica dominant hybrid.
Strainfinder.eu, our favourite web site for cannabis geeks, gives a detailed history of the three mother plants of Triple OG: Triangle Kush, Constantine and Master Yoda. Of course the lineage includes OG Kush with it’s Chemdawg Lemon Thai and Hindu / Pakistan heritage. Also in the mix are a number of other classics such as Skunk #1 and Northern Lights as well as Lambsbread, Jack Herer, Romulan, Lemon Kush, Starfighter and Master Kush.
BC BLACK TRIPLE OG PACKAGING
Packed in BC Black’s familiar gusseted black mylar bag, the flowers arrived in great shape and with a big nose. Can’t fault the packaging and makes one wonder if the upgrade to glass jars is worth it. Of course glass is the best for preserving dried flower, but the downside of glass is increased shipping weight and cost.
THE BC BLACK TRIPLE OG NUMBERS
BC Black Triple OG tested at a whopping 31% THC. Sometimes we see these high THC numbers coming at the cost of moisture level or terpenes. This flower is terpene rich at 2.7% by weight and is a very respectable number.
D-Limonene is the top terp and comes in at 0.82%. Limonene can be found in citrus fruits and peppermint, and herbs like rosemary sage and basil and I found it has anti-depressant and anti-anxiety properties.
Beta-Myrcene comes in second at 0.71% by weight. The most plentiful terpene in cannabis is myrcene which can also be found in hops. It’s a complex terp, bringing earthy musk, citrus, clove and fruity flavours. Myrcene’s primary effect is sedative.
Linalool is the third primary terp in this flower and comes in at 0.41%. Linalool is the primary terpene in Lavender, and gives anti-anxiety and relaxing sedative effects. 4 out of 4
BC Black Triple OG has healthy green hues speckled with milky trichomes and interspersed with burnt orange pistils. The flowers are quite dense but not rock hard which is good and generously caked with trichomes. Our eighth gave us true weight and consisted of three big 1g+ buds and a couple of smalls to make up the difference.

The big buds have impressive density coupled with great structure and integrity (i.e. haven’t been bounced around by a trimming machine). They compress nicely when squeezed with no breakage, and bounce back to their original shape. Virtually no shake when opening the bag or after handling. The flower is cured well by folks who understand how important this part of the process is. The moisture level was good, but the buds aren’t sticky to the touch – something we used to expect in premium flower, but with legalization that may be part of the past. 4 out of 4
This flower brings a beautiful nose that’s reminiscent of many of the OG Kush varieties we’ve seen in the past. It’s foundation is a classic dank, musky pungent earth with distinct citrus highlights and a sweet and subtle hint of lavender. Some aromatic spicy notes round out a delicious aroma. 4 out of 4
A half gram sample busted up big. The grind was even with only a few coarse pieces surviving about 20 turns on the grinder. Giving the ground flower a pinch we confirmed a healthy moisture level and sticky consistency, a testament to a good cure.
The flower rolled easily with good binding from the ground flower. It readily formed a cylinder and turned over very easily. Again, a great cure makes things easy!
THE DRY PULL
I always enjoy a taste of the unburned joint. It’s like smelling with your taste buds and gives new depth and appreciation to the terp profile. This flower was TASTY! Citrus and herbs, lavender, spice and everything nice!
The flower burns beautifully, creamy smooth smoke that’s easy on the throat and lungs despite the potency of the flower. The complex aromas translate into a delicious flavour that is familiar, and at the same time the generous linalool content delivers a hit of lavender that gives the Triple OG a distinctive flavour.
4 out of 4
I’ll qualify this by saying I love OG Kush. This plant has always given me an effect that is comfortable and relaxing but clear and functional. The high THC number of the Triple OG meant I was going to go easy on this variety. After 4 or 5 pulls I put it out and waited to see how the effect developed. I was not disappointed – relaxed, at ease, uplifted and happy. I had a bigger dose later in the day and it was perfect for de-stressing because it allowed me to enjoy my evening and sent me off to a great sleep.
