Tips for growing OG Kush cannabis

This article is presented by Advanced Nutrients, a global company raising the bud weights and reputations of cannabis growers since 1999.

Strain overview: OG Kush is a famous hybrid strain with a somewhat mysterious backstory. What is known is that OGK offers a euphoric high that is also calming and sedative. The smell of OG Kush is earthy and pungent, and the buds blossom with resinous crystals. Long before legal dispensaries came around, OG Kush was already a household name in the underground cannabis industry, cherished for its reliable quality and balanced high.

Grow techniques: This hybrid is susceptible to powdery mildew, but pruning will improve airflow in the canopy. It’s a great strain to grow indoors with SCROG or SOG methods to increase yields and bud size. Always support the buds as they can become extremely heavy and dense. A hydroponic setup indoors can help keep the immune system healthy and strong to prevent against disease. 

Flowering time: 8 weeks

Yield: Moderate

Grow difficulty: Difficult

Climate: Can handle colder nighttime temperatures and prefers lower humidity levels while flowering. Ideally, OG Kush plants are kept at temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/outdoor: Grows well both indoors and out. Its dense buds can make it susceptible to bud rot when humidity is high, making it ideal for drier climates if grown outdoors. OG Kush is a good choice for indoor grows as well, especially if training techniques are applied effectively.

Feeding: OG genetics require heavy feeding with calcium and magnesium. Make sure plants are receiving enough food in flowering to allow the buds to develop to their full potential. Feed plants with compost tea to strengthen their immunity against powdery mildew.

    K so now that this stuff is legal and all, I decided to buy the 4 plants that the law says I’m allowed to grow, I don’t smoke this stuff but my kids who are full grown adults aka above 21 each, do smoke. This is my first time growing it, and the crops came out amazing I think. They smelled great, I use to smoke it back in my youth so I am aware of smell, look, feel and all that. My question is, do all these types of weed, blue dream, diesel, green crack etc all come from typical weed plants or are they different, K I’m not good at explaining stuff, but can I take an average weed plant and create these types of weed?

      Hi Patricia,

      I am not sure how to interpret your question exactly but I will try to provide some information that may help. Think of it more like breeds of animals such as dogs. Certain conditions, both natural and unnatural, led to different breeds of dogs. Each unique with their own purpose. Cannabis is much the same. Much like you wouldn’t be able to purchase a lab and a poodle to make a doberman, the same holds true for cannabis as well. Try asking uncle google if he knows where you can order seeds online for specific strains. Hope this helps. Good luck with your adventures. Sounds like you are off to a great start.
