OG Kush Overview
You really don’t have to be a cannabis connoisseur to have a good idea as to what OG Kush is all about. Reassuringly expensive and with the kind of reputation that speaks for itself, OG Kush is a legendary strain that’s been in consistently high demand since its first public appearance. Delivering the perfect combination of a punchy high, beautiful spiced-pine flavour and long-lasting buzz that goes on and on, it’s a THC-packed powerhouse that’s world-renowned for a very good reason.

Often packing THC levels of close to 20%, OG Kush is known far and wide for being an instant and long-lasting stress-buster. Immediate and near-overpowering euphoria takes your mood places you never thought possible, with medical patients routinely turning to OG Kush for the treatment of ADD, migraines and more. Genetically, OG Kush is 25% sativa and 75% indica, with CBD that normally tops out below 0.3%.
Along with its mind-blowing and surprisingly versatile effects, OG Kush packs a high price because it can be tricky to grow. Native to warmer tropical regions, it’s a pretty unforgiving strain that doesn’t give the average indoor grower an easy ride. Still, get it right and you’ll be looking at stout plants, fat buds and short flowering times - OG Kush ticks all the right boxes and then some.
OG Kush Origins
As is the case with many legendary cannabis strains, the exact origin of OG Kush is the subject of huge debate. Some credit its creation with OverGrown.com, which was once the world’s biggest online grow site. As far as Californians are concerned however, the correct and obvious explanation as to its origins can be found in Original Gangster – a local strain that gained incredible popularity across much of the west coast. It’s believed that by combining this California favorite with an exotic Kush, OG Kush was eventually born. What is known for sure about its genetics however is that its bloodline can be traced back at least in part to Chemdawg.
OG Kush Effects
The hit is one of mood-transforming euphoria, which of course you’d expect from an indica-heavy strain. OG Kush is known worldwide for delivering the kind of immediate cerebral rush that can be somewhat overpowering for inexperienced smokers. While the euphoria itself is just about as uplifting as it gets, OG Kush also delivers a heavy sedating body stone and can quickly lead to couch-lock. Overdo it with this stuff and you are out of action for hours – at least, physically speaking.
If looking to simply relax and do nothing, OG Kush makes an outstanding choice. It delivers the perfect combination of the inability/unwillingness to do much at all, while at the same time enjoying every minute of it. OG Kush is a superb choice for an evening smoke after retiring of a stressful day, when all you want to do is float away in a state of blissful tranquillity. That said, it also takes no prisoners when it comes to the munchies – meaning chances are you’ll have to venture at least as far as the kitchen from time to time.
OG Kush Medical Uses
Those in medical circles routinely turn to OG Kush for the treatment of a variety of conditions. Dispensaries and doctors across the United States typically recommend OG Kush for the treatment of nervousness, anxiety and depression, while its comparatively high CBD content also makes it great for providing effective relief from chronic pain, muscle spasms and PMS. As OG Kush is known for its effective and consistent appetite stimulation, it also comes highly recommended for the treatment of appetite loss as a result of various chronic conditions and treatments. Evidence also suggests that OG Kush can be great in the treatment of migraines and severe/prolonged headaches.
OG Kush Flavour and Fragrance
A true cannabis connoisseur can detect OG Kush a mile away from its appearance and fragrance alone. The buds are gloriously rich and sticky, producing a beautiful lemon-citrus fragrance that bursts into life when broken. If you find yourself around OG Kush cannabis plants, the fresh buds give off the intoxicating aroma of a pine forest.
When burnt, the citrus—pine notes carry through beautifully and are accentuated with plenty of spice and earthy tones. Depending on how it was grown, there can also be a decidedly sweet and herbal undertone, which works gorgeously with the predominantly lemony flavour. As the smoke itself is decadent, you can expect the aftertaste to linger indefinitely. And with a strain as delicious as this, that can only be a good thing!
There are famous cannabis strains, popular strains and then there are the strains that are nothing short of legendary. To be frank OG Kush is the kind of strain that deserves an entirely new classification in its own right! Not only because the original article is simply outstanding, but also because OG Kush has passed it genes on to more incredible sub-strains than a dozen lesser cannabis varieties.
It’s the kind of cannabis strain you need in your life…it’s as simple as that!
Right now, demand for high-quality OG Kush is reaching record-highs all over the world – particularly in the United States. Along with borderline ridiculous power and potency, it’s that quintessential diesel and lime flavour OG Kush packs that make it stand out as something truly remarkable. A favourite among growers, buyers and smokers alike, OG Kush is an authority all of its own.

Hero of the West Coast
Having first appeared on the scene in the early 1990s, OG Kush would go on to form the genetic basis of pretty much every killer cannabis strain to be cooked up across the West Coast of the USA. But despite the fact that it’s a strain of unique importance, its true origins are still unknown. Many believe OG Kush to be the product of combining Hindu Kush with Chemdawg, perhaps with other unknown genetic contributors. But whatever the madmen behind it did, they did it right!
OG Kush earned much of it global reputation on the back of its unique ability to take stress and make it disappear like nothing else out there. The euphoria it delivers is both immediate and lingering, complemented beautifully by that simply gorgeous lemon-pine fragrance that’s become the calling card of good OG Kush. While the standard genetics to expect from OG Kush are 25% Sativa and 75% Indica, there are plenty of hybrid strains these days that tip the balance in both directions enormously.
One charming urban legend still doing the rounds these days is that gang members expecting to be shot at one point or another use OG Kush as a pre-emptive painkiller! In reality, OG Kush is simply famed for its incredible muscle-relaxing properties, which have been associated with considerable and prolonged relief from a wide variety of chronic conditions.

Growing OG Kush
What makes OG Kush trickier than many strains to grow is the fact that it can be somewhat susceptible to bugs, disease and powdery mildew. What’s more, it’s also a challenge to provide it with the consistent tropical growing conditions it needs to hit its best. For those looking to grow OG Kush where doing so has been legalised, it’s necessary to have a pretty advanced and reliable setup that can hold the perfect balance with meticulous precision.
On the plus side, OG Kush enables growers to take full advantage of even the smallest indoor grow spaces. While the plants are seriously dense and generous in terms of foliage, it’s rare for a mature OG Kush plant to hit more than 35 inches in height. Usually around 20 inches is the norm. Yields are modest to good, though flowering times of less than nine weeks more than make up for this. Get it right and one square metre of growing space can be enough to produce around 16oz of OG Kush, which given the quality and punch of the stuff is more than generous enough. Anyone looking to grow outdoors will need to live somewhere hot and tropical, though outdoor yields don’t tend to improve on those you’d achieve indoors.
