OG Kush, often known as “Premium OG Kush” or simply “Kush,” was reportedly developed in Florida in the early 1990s when a marijuana strain from Northern California was heard to be crossed with Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and a Hindu Kush plant derived from Amsterdam. The original genetic lineage is unknown, however the secrecy is most likely due to the strain’s remarkable reputation – OG Kush is the most recognized and commonly utilized strain in medical marijuana.
ABOUT OG KUSH
This famous plant boasts high THC levels, sitting at an average of 26%, and is almost a completely balanced hybrid – coming in at a 55/45 sativa dominant strain. The high hits you immediately, leaving you with a rush of sociability and giggles, as well as a bit of the munchies. As one of the most well-known cannabis strains, you can expect the most traditional high from this classic bud. The strain is frequently used in social settings, to stimulate appetite, to calm down after mood swings, ease the stresses of depression, or alleviate a tiresome headache. We recommend this strain for afternoon consumption on lazy days or as a companion with a large group of friends (and plenty of snacks).
Don’t expect anything too sweet in terms of fragrance; this strain has a light aroma with earthy undertones. It smells strongly of pine with touches of lime, lemon, and spice. The major terpenes in OG Kush are Beta-Myrcene and Beta-Caryophyllene, which provide the strain its earthy, spicy flavour. On the exhale, sour citrus and woody notes mingle with undertones of pine and other woodsy characteristics. However, it also has some sweet undertones that blend well with the herbal overtones to give the strain a distinct flavour.
