OG Kush makes up the genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, but in spite of its ubiquity, its origins remain a debatable mystery. Popular myth maintains that Chemdawg and an indica Hindu Kush parented OG Kush, passing on the distinct “kush” bud structure we see in many strains today. Other theories throw Lemon Thai genetics into the genetic mix, but no one can say for sure how this iconic strain came into existence. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, some of which include Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Alpha OG.
Whatever its true genetics may be, OG Kush is commonly described as sativa-like in its euphoric and happy effects that combat stress and anxiety. It has an earthypine scent with woody undertones, an aroma that has become the signature of OG Kush varieties and descendants. With OG Kush, patients most commonly cite improvements in migraines, ADD/ADHD, and stress disorders. It has an indoor flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks with moderate yields.
“These nugs were dark and massive, fairly dense with a piney chocolate smell and covered in orange hairs and crystals. Overall it looked like the definition of DANK, very difficult to bust up too. But the high was something else, very uplifting and social buzz kicks in within a few minutes followed by euphoria and body buzz, powerful and very talkative high. A MUST TRY!! dont pass it up, its a beautiful strain!”
“Best euphoria when it's grown optimally ! Great for pain relief , starts strong in the head but not racey and mellows into a heavy body buzz. Oddly , I have had versions which tended to be more sativa but these were clearance deals .”
