OG Kush is originally from Northern California and is known worldwide for its potency and its extremely specific smell. It is impossible to compare OG to any other strain in existence. Something that it could be a mixture of Pakistani Kush, Lemon Thai and Chemdawg but its true genetic make-up isn’t known for sure. Some others think it could be a variant of Chemdawg from the early 90s. No one is even sure what its name means, some believe its Original Gangster whilst others believe that it stands for Ocean Grown.
Either way one thing that we do know is that OG Kush is one hell of a strain. All cannabis lovers of all creeds and backgrounds love this feisty plant. The thing that really sets this strain apart is its scent. A dark, powerful aroma with just a little sweetness and a tang that finishes it all off. The after taste lingers playfully on the tongue and despite its Indica genetics its does behave like a Sativa.
OG Kush takes about 8 weeks to flower and produces around 65 grams per plant. They can start out a little on the gangly side but they really start to fill out as they mature. They can reach from around 2.5 – 3.5 feet in height. The buds that they grow are thick and drenched in resin. This particular variety of OG Kush is also feminised meaning that it is of a generally higher level of quality and of uniformity. Male plants can also cause a number of issues in the crop during the growing process. Removing them from the equation makes growing easier for the female plants and for the grower. However it does have some specific nutritional needs and prefers a sunny climate when grown outdoors.
It is thought that OG Kush was first grown in California which would explain its name. It is often used as a medicinal strain which can be taken by those suffering from depression, PTSD and Parkinson’s disease.
