If you’re looking to transform into a flesh-eating monster, Zombie OG is not the choice for you. After a taste of this indica, the only thing you’ll be hungry for are the cold cuts in the fridge (though you may be too catatonic to get up and grab them). Heavy and lethargic, this cross between OG Kush and Blackberry has been a favorite among those suffering from muscle spasms and acute pain. Due to its strong sedative effects, don’t expect to have the energy to rampage the city. This strain is best used at nighttime, when you’re not expecting to do much of anything.
Small light green buds caked in white sugar, best describes the Zombie OG offered at Buddies Canada. Slight red-orange hairs and purplish colourations to the leaf tips characterize this tasty treat. Sweet aromas with hints of berry are apparent before lighting, which results in puffy white clouds of a smell that slightly resembles that of fresh baked cookies.
Buddies Canadas’ Zombie OG will leave you feeling more the stalkers from “Dawn Of The Dead” than the ferocious hunters from “World War Z”. An astounding 90 percent indica will do exactly what is imagined, leaving one crawling to the fridge (or to bed) in relaxation.
In celebration of Zombie OG arriving at Buddies Canada here are ten of our very favourite cinematic journeys into the land of the undead
10: Return of the Living Dead
When two bumbling employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead to rise again as zombies. A campy classic from 1985 to kick off the list!
9: The Serpent and the Rainbow
Bill Pullman stars as an anthropologist who travels to Haiti to investigate the rumors of the use of a potion used by local practitioners of Vodou to bring the dead back to life. It’s inspired by the nonfiction account of a Haitian man named Clairvius Narcisse, who spent two years as a “zombie” after being buried alive.
8: Planet Terror
One half of the Grindhouse double feature release alongside Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, Robert Rodriguez’s sci-fi-horror epic follows the fallout of a biochemical attack that transforms the residents of rural Texas into deformed zombies (although it’s most noteworthy for Rose McGowan’s one-legged go-go dancer turned killing machine).
Here’s a fact: Frankenstein is generally excluded from conversation about the zombie genre. But here’s another fact: Without Mary Shelley’s original novel, and James Whale’s horror masterpiece that introduced the world to Boris Karloff’s lumbering and reluctant monster, we may very well not have any of the iconic movies about the reanimated undead. Almost a century later, this one still holds up.
4:Dawn of the Dead
3:28 Days Later
Danny Boyle’s turbo-charged thriller begins when Cillian Murphy wakes up fully naked on a hospital bed a month after a virus has infected humanity, leaving London a veritable ghost town—that is, one populated by very fast zombies. The survivors must band together to hold off the fiends, infected with “rage,” but soon realize that their allies are just as deadly as the infected that are hunting them down.
2:Shaun of the Dead
Funny horror movies usually put the emphasis on the comedy as opposed to the terror, but Edgar Wright’s directorial debut is a horror spoof that’s ultimately as terrifying (and gross) as it is hilarious. The titular Shaun spends his mediocre days shuffling to and from work, playing video games with his best friend, and pining for his recently estranged girlfriend. But that humdrum life is instantly spun out of control when a zombie apocalypse takes over London, forcing him to action to protect his best friend, his mother, and the love of his life.
1:Night of the Living Dead
George Romero essentially created the modern zombie film as we know it with this iconic horror film. Shot on a shoe-string budget (making it one of the greatest indie films ever made), the slow-moving undead who roam around suburban Pittsburgh searching for fresh human meat remain some of the most terrifying monsters in cinema history. Come for the terror, stay for the surprising social commentary that brilliantly taps into American racial and cultural tensions.
With so many to choose from, let us know if we’re missing your favourite! Spark up some Zombie OG and enjoy a flick tonight!
