OG Kush was first cultivated in Florida, in the early ‘90s when a strain from Northern California was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. The result was a hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with notes of fuel, skunk, and spice, and great flowers.
The genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, it arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it (along with “The Bubba,” which was later used to create the famed Bubba Kush) from Florida to legendary cultivator Josh D. Since then, it has become a worldwide staple used to create numerous famous strains like Girl Scout Cookies and Headband. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, including Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Ghost OG.
This cannabis strain has quickly become known around the world for its distinct aroma and strong effects. it is a very unique strain that can’t be compared with any other marijuana strain.
an esteemed mix of strains
Royal Queen Seeds breeders worked hard to develop our own version of the legendary OG Kush. Using a mix of Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush, they created a well-rounded strain with high THC levels and bucket-loads of fruity terpenes. Overall, she features a stoning genetic profile of 75% indica genetics and 25% sativa.
Its true genetics are unknown. Some say OG Kush is a mix of ChemDawg with a Lemon Thai and Pakistani Kush. Others say that it’s just a special cutting of ChemDawg from the early 90s. Even the meaning of the name OG has been debated; with some saying it means Original Gangster. However, now, because of its origins, most people agree it means Ocean Grown.
Is OG Kush the most popular RQS strain?
One thing that is not debated is the popularity of this feminized cannabis strain. From Hollywood movie stars and rappers to medical marijuana users, OG Kush is loved by many. The most obvious trait of OG Kush is its strong, unique, very dank, slightly citrus aroma, almost like fuel or strong detergent. The flavor of OG Kush is equally as strong and dank, with a long-lasting aftertaste.
provides a strong mental and physical high
OG Kush is an extremely strong cannabis strain, with most experienced smokers listing it as one of their favorites. The effect is as strong physically as it is mentally. Though its effect is like a Sativa, the strain’s genetics are mostly Indica. The effect is as strong and complex as the flavor. OG Kush takes around 8 weeks to flower and on average the yield is 500 grams per plant.
THC levels of 19% drive a high that soothes the body and mind in equal measure. Delicious scents and tastes of citrus, pine, and fruit augment the high and will leave you craving another hit… and another. High concentrations of the terpenes myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene underpin her recognizable aroma.
Growers can easily achieve higher yields by employing basic training techniques. Topping early in the vegetative stage will force plants to produce multiple main stems and more flowering sites. Both main-lining and low-stress training will help keep her bushy and dense canopy under control and adequately aerated.
blooms big buds with lovely hues
OG Kush is known to stretch slightly during growth but soon starts to fill out during flowering. Generally, it will reach a height of 90 to 160 cm. Its buds are large and dense, lime green clusters covered with a large amount of resin. There are many good reasons why OG Kush has become so popular. Now available as a feminized variety from Royal Queen Seeds, so you can try out this amazing strain yourself.
OG Kush is a king thanks to sales dominance since the 90s, rowdy aroma, intense effects, and parenting thousands of crosses.
