The Classic Hybrid Strain

OG Kush is one of the most famous cannabis hybrid strains that is known even outside the world of cannabis aficionados. However, its origins are unknown. Some people claim that it is a cross between the standard Chemdawg and a Hindu Kush landrace. There is also a chance that OG Kush came from an undocumented bag seed as a distinct phenotype of some other strain.

There is not even clarity on its name. Depending on who you ask OG can stand for original gangster, ocean grown, or (a reference to an old website that provided resources for cannabis growers). However, one thing that everyone agrees on is that it is highly potent with average THC levels of between 20% and 25%.

The plant has medium to large buds that resemble nuggets, in general, they have a dense indica like structure. The leaves are a yellowish green but there are occasional traces of purple due to anthocyanin pigments that are activated by cold weather. There are bright orange pistils and these stand out against the colourful flowers.

The flowers are also covered in trichomes that give them a silvery-white hue and make them very sticky to the touch. When prepping the plant it is advisable to use a grinder. If they are properly cured then the buds will have an earthy smell together with a hint of citrus, much like a hoppy beer. When the buds are burnt then the smell becomes more pine-like. The smoke form OG Kush is fairly harsh and it tastes spicy, like a classic indica. The smell tends to linger and it is anything but subtle.

OG Kush gives a more head-focused than physical high. It begins with a head rush that can cause users to focus on their surroundings with sounds and colours intensified. Many report that their mood is uplifted to an almost euphoric like state. The high is not as cerebral as with more pure sativas, it does not lead to a disorientating sense of rapid thought association. It is a highly social strain that is excellent for parties and lively conversation. Furthermore, many report that it is a great way to enhance activities that involve the body and mind, such as video gaming and exercise.

Many use OG Kush to aid with anxiety and depression. It has also reportedly helped those who suffer with attention deficit disorders. Others have also reported that it helps with headaches and migraines. As with most sativas, in high doses it has the potential to make users feel paranoid.

The plant can be grown indoors and outdoors. To grow it outside you will need consistent temperatures of around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Indoor growing is fairly straightforward as the plants are short and bushy and don’t normally grow to more than 3.5 feet tall. OG Kush flowers within 9 weeks when grown indoors and provides an average yield of 1.6 ounces per square foot.

Thanks to its uplifting and mildly energising effect, OG Kush is an excellent daytime strain. It can be enjoyed both socially and alone, and will not stop users accomplishing a variety of tasks.
