El Dorado OG is an indica-dominant strain (90%), the result of crossing OG Kush with Thin Mints GSC. While European invaders searched the New World for El Dorado, a mythical source of riches, Paradise Seeds has created the modern equivalent through selective cannabis breeding. El Dorado OG has high resin production, a superb terpene profile and medicinal benefits that will help to raise spirits while soothing pain and providing complete relaxation.
El Dorado OG is an easy-to-grow strain and is ideal for those indoor grow rooms where space might be an obstacle for larger plants. Plants grow uniformly and with a stocky, bushy structure developing a central cola with lateral branches providing a lower leaf canopy. Resin production becomes obvious early during flowering and buds display a tight calyx structure with vivid orange pistils. Later in flowering buds may show some purple amongst the small sugar-coated leaves. Indoor flowering time is about 60 days with yields of 500 gr/m2 expected.
Outdoor cultivation is most successful in warmer climates although possible in cooler zones where a low calyx to leaf ration allows for good air-flow leading to some degree of mould resistance. Flowering in this environment will take a weeks or so longer at around 70 days. Yields will be as high as 1000 gr/plant or even more in optimum conditions.
El Dorado OG's terpenes give a strong scent of earth, wood, pine resin with sweet lemon and fuel notes. On the palate spicy lemon and pine are underpinned by an attractive bitter quality. THC production varies between 18 - 22% while CBD is less than 0.1%. The effect is one of profound mental and physical relaxation which is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face.

About Paradise Seeds
Paradise Seeds was born in Amsterdam in 1994 although founder of the company, Luc, started collecting seeds for a few years before. The seeds were brought to him by friends returning from travels to cannabis hot spots in India, Colombia, Africa and Afghanistan. He began to experiment and by the early Nineties, Luc’s seeds were attracting the attention of growers and smokers alike in Amsterdam.
The demand for Luc’s seeds grew so much that in 1994, he officially established Paradise Seeds. The company began with 5 official strains – including Dutch Dragon and Sensi Star. The aim of the company has always been to produce cannabis strains that combine potency with flavour and taste.
Since their humble beginnings, Paradise Seeds have invested in building up a strong strain base, selecting and crossing only the best plants from the many thousands they have grown over the years.
There is a handful of strains that have retained their popularity since they were first released into the Paradise Seeds collection. Wappa is definitely a favourite for its all-round performance, and of course Sensi Star has been a big favorite and is a multiple cup winner. As for Auto’s, their Pandora and Auto Wappa are very popular. While some of Paradise Seeds more recent varieties, the Durga Mata ll CBD and Nebula ll CBD strains have been well received by medical users with their high CBD content.
Paradise Seeds are constantly running numerous breeding programs to ensure that new strains are in development all the time.
The famous breeders also contribute to the medical cannabis industry through many charitable projects like the Daya Foundation and the Medical Cannabis Bike Tour.
Paradise Seeds are one of the most awarded seed banks in history and they not only have a large trophy cabinet, but a large selection of superb strains, all of which you can buy from Seedsman.
