Like the original, only faster.
It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that OG Kush might well be one of the most famous strains in the cannabis community. Debuting in Florida, she soon made her way to the West Coast and her potential was swiftly utilized by breeders to create countless hybrids - all of which bear aspects of her wonderful effects and flavors, but none of which quite have the same essence as the original herself.
With a unique terpene profile that lends a powerful fuel and skunk odor (not to mention the delectable hints of lemon) and impressive amounts of frosty trichomes that adorn her nugs, it’s not hard to see why this OG Kush is so highly revered. Still, very little is known about this herb's origins, though the general consensus on the 420 scene is that her ancestry includes Old World Paki Kush, Chemdawg and Lemon Thai - though the influence of Hindu Kush, too, is undeniable.
No matter where she came from, this Indica-dominant herb can still provide fast-acting cerebral effects that induce a gentle euphoria and all-round happiness. That is, before a deep and intense body-stone hits and knocks you back to the couch for the foreseeable.
Of course, these effects can be used creatively to temper a variety of medical symptoms. For the mind, the upbeat effects of OG Kush can soothe away stress and depression. For the body, she eases every muscle and softens every kink to relieve pain from the likes of multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia.
Growing this fast version is fairly straightforward, and though a little experience is recommended, newbies should still be able to manage this herb well enough. More of an Indica than the original, OG Kush Fast Version is compact and ideal for indoor growing - though this small stature can also make for dense foliage, that requires a fair bit of TLC to keep healthy. Still, her yields are excellent for such a small strain, and even outdoors, she’ll do well.
Flavor and Fragrance of OG Kush Fast Version
The fast version of OG Kush is much like the original, pungent with the scent of kerosene and fuel, underpinned by subtle (and delicious) notes of citrus lemon, and a contrasting spicy note.
Although not as fast as an autoflowering strain, OG Kush Fast Version does have Ruderalis in her genetic make-up, so she’s fast-flowering, but still a photoperiod - which in no way compromises her THC levels, and within a toke or two you’ll find out just exactly how potent and devastating this herb can be.
Within a few moments of inhaling, the gentle euphoria of this ganja works to uplift your mood and clear our negative thoughts, ushering in upbeat feelings of happiness. Around this time, you’ll still be in a mobile state, capable of performing tasks - which will be all the more enjoyable while this head-high dominates the brain.
After around 30 minutes or so, this cerebral high’s soothing calm will begin to expand into the body, easing tension from your muscles and relaxing you from top to toe. This effect will gradually intensify into a profound body-stone that weighs down the limbs and blankets your body in heaviness.
Now is a good time to let the lethargy in, and chill with a lazy evening of TV on the couch. For those less accustomed to the high THC levels in OG Kush Fast, this could lead instead to drowsiness, and even sleep. In higher doses, this will be an even stronger effect, causing heavy couchlock that leaves you basking in bliss while your mind turns inward and introspective.
Of course, there can be side effects to a joint of this weed - headaches, dry eyes, dizziness and cottonmouth are commonly reported, but easier to remedy by ensuring you stay hydrated. Excessive amounts of this herb could lead to more adverse effects, such as heightened anxiety.
Medical Uses of OG Kush Fast Version
Infamous not just as a recreational strain, but for her ability to wipe out feelings of stress, the fast version of OG Kush is just as useful to the medicinal marijuana (MMJ) community as the original.
Potent and bursting with anxiolytic and antidepressant properties, roll up a spliff of this weed to ward off the symptoms of depression, to bring calm to your anxiety, or to utilize as an antipsychotic for such concerns as PTSD and bipolar disorder.
As an analgesic, OG Kush Fast Version has a high enough level of THC to aid in reducing the pain from a variety of conditions, including arthritis, fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.
In higher doses, this strain’s body-stone can send tokers off to dreamland in no time at all, so for those suffering from insomnia or chronic fatigue, a hit of this can be the very reprieve required for a long night of rest.
Growing OG Kush Fast Version Seeds
From the perspective of a cannabis cultivator, OG Kush Fast Version differs from the original strain in several ways, leaning generally more towards Indica traits and growth patterns. She’s smaller in size and averages at around 100 centimeters, though retains the same number of lateral branches as the original version - all in all making her a perfect strain for indoor growing.
The environment in which you grow this cannabis is crucially important, as ideal temperatures and humidity levels can have a positive effect on her growth. If moisture levels are too high, the denser parts of OG Kush’s foliage can be susceptible to molds, but air circulation can be improved with the installation of an oscillating fan, and regular trimming and pruning.
Most would agree that this ganja is great to grow, and not too much of a challenge. For those looking to improve the size of her harvest though, some training techniques should be considered. We would recommend a Sea of Green (SOG) setup combined with a 600-watt HPS grow lamp, which could improve yields considerably and reward you with as much as 600 grams per square meter after around 7 weeks of flowering.
Though more commonly cultivated indoors, OG Kush Fast is amenable to outdoor growing, and flourishes in areas with plenty of warm sunshine. Harvest time in the northern hemisphere should be around the first week of September, and each plant may yield between 350 and 600 grams of nugs.
Your favorite, famous strain is now available as a fast version - and OG Kush Fast Version happens to be feminized too, making your life as a cultivator as simple as can be with quick-growing plants, decent yields and plenty of pungent fuel flavor ready for reaping in no time.
Known in her original form as contrasting in odor and taste, these diesel-lemon nugs hit fast and hard to fill your mind with a pleasant euphoria that lasts maybe half an hour before she descends into a deep, heavy-limbed body-stone ideal for relieving pain.
For cultivators, newbies won’t have too much trouble with OG Kush, as she’ll take up very little space, flower for around 7 weeks - in which time you’ll have to maintain her environment and keep her well-trimmed - and finally harvest plenty for your stash. Indoors or out, this herb will have you riding her cerebral highs and sinking into her body-stones in no time at all.
