About OG Kush
History & Genetics
OG Kush is sometimes known as “Premium OG Kush” or even just “Kush,” first cultivated in Florida almost 30 years ago now. This strain is the origin of the word, “OG,” used in many other cannabis strains over the years. Some believe that “OG” homages “Original Gangster,” an even older strain, though others tell other stories.
The original genetic lineage is not 100% known, but researchers believe that Chemdawg, Hindu Kush, and Lemon Thai were mixed with an unknown Northern Californian strain to make OG Kush. The secrecy is probably due to the strain’s incredible fame – OG Kush is the single most recognizable and widely-used strain when it comes to medical marijuana. With a nearly balanced composition (55% Sativa, 45% Indica) and mid-high THC levels, it’s no wonder the strain is enjoyed around the world.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
The plant itself is hardy and resinous, growing in chunky buds, dark green and shaped like grapes. Its pistils are bright orange, thin, and overlong. Its trichomes are like white gold, tiny, sparkling, and covered in shiny resin.
OG Kush’s primary terpenes are Beta-Myrcene and Beta-Caryophyllene, which give the strain its overwhelmingly earthy, spicy palette. Sour citrus and woody flavors peek in on the exhale, with hints of pine and other dank Kush flavors.
The high starts pretty quickly, giving you a feeling of rushing sociability, chattiness, hunger, and a case of the giggles. You’ll be munching on food constantly, looking for anyone to talk to, and feeling completely relaxed the whole time. As the most famous cannabis strain out there, you can expect the most stereotypical high.
The strain is often used in social situations, to jumpstart a stubborn appetite, to relax out of a mood swing, to dispel a bout of depression, or evaporate a tiring headache. We recommend this strain for afternoon use on do-nothing days and as a companion with a bunch of friends (and plenty of snacks). You don’t become the most famous cannabis on accident – OG Kush, even against stiffer competition today, still earns its name.
OG Kush flowers in around 8 to 9 weeks, producing 17 oz of weed per square meter of indoor garden. The strain grows well outdoors too.We recommend a hydroponics setup when growing OG Kush indoors. This is because OG Kush is not a hardy plant when grown in normal soil and is prone to many diseases. But if you don’t have any hydroponics experience, we recommend non-soil growing mediums to encourage OG Kush’s healthy growth and discourage diseases. These include rockwool and clay pellets.
Love this strain. Energizing as well as providing a nice body buzz. I have got the Shine carts and flower in Rise in Ducansville Pa
I need weed
This is hard to find in my area. But is the best for me in pain, anxiety and the biggest thing, muscle spasms. I would buy this only if it were available near me, more often.
One of the first hybrid strains that really checked a ton of medicinal needs for me. Overall great strain for anxiety, muscles pains, sometimes sleep depending on the version, fatigue, etc this strain should brighten up your day. A true classic hybrid strain.
Fabulous frontal lobe high at first then a very relaxing ride
