OG Kush Strain Genetics
The exact heritage of OG Kush has been unclear since it hit the scene in California and Colorado, in the early 1990s. Most cannaisseurs are relatively confident, however, that it consists of Chemdawg and Hindu Kush genetics.
The story goes that the first seeds of this strain were found in a leftover bag of weed discarded at a Grateful Dead concert in Miami, Florida. Shortly thereafter, it was passed on into the capable hands of seed company Imperial Genetics, who cultivated it into what we now know as one of the most crossbred indica-dominant hybrids in the world.
OG Kush Terpene Profile
The flavour and scent of OG Kush have been a staple in the cannabis industry ever since its discovery. Many cannabis lovers will have, at one point in their lives, smelled and tasted the sweet, earthy pine forest that is the pinnacle of Kush genetics. Its terpene profile contains plenty of myrcene, the cause of that delightful piney aroma.
OG Kush Effects
OG Kush’s famed euphoric and uplifting cerebral bombardment and heavy sedative body-stoned effect aren’t for everybody. You’ll need to have at least some experience with other potent strains if you want to stay on your feet! The soaring THC-levels (20 – 24%) of this legendary strain will blast your socks off.
Medical Benefits OG Kush
Thanks to the presence of myrcene, OG Kush is said to have pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, which could help those who suffer from chronic pain, headaches, migraines, and muscle and joint pain.
The relaxed and happy high created by this cannabis strain could also be beneficial for those struggling with anxiety, depression, and stress. This hybrid cannabis strain can also help to increase appetite. This versatility has led to OG Kush becoming a popular medical marijuana strain for a number of medical conditions.
How to Grow OG Kush
If grown correctly, the flowers of OG Kush will be a bright, lime green colour. They should be large, dense, and coated in crystals. It takes some experience to achieve the optimal yield with this strain since you’ll need to know how to implement SCROG or SOG setups to ensure its maximum potential.
OG Kush likes to stretch out its roots, so make sure you use large pots. When cultivating OG Kush outside, make sure you do it in a warm and dry climate.
