OG Kush Marijuana Strain

SHARE
OG Kush is a famous Indica marijuana strain. Thanks to its Indica effects and high THC levels, this strain will leave you feeling euphoric and energized. It is a great choice for treating depression, stress and chronic pain conditions.

OG Kush is one of the most popular cannabis strains around. This 1990s sensation is also the base of many modern-day hybrids. With THC content soaring up to 24%, it's no wonder why this strain has become so famous.

 

OG Kush Experience


OG Kush is one of the most popular strains around. Though, its genetics are somewhat of a mystery. It’s thought to stem from some bag seed out of Florida and later cultivated by the folks behind Imperial Genetics in California. The best guesses are that it is a mix between Chemdawg and Hindu Kush.

This strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid with a kush-like aroma and bud structure. Though there is some debate, “OG” is thought to stand for ocean grown, a tribute to this strain’s Californian heritage. Despite its mysterious origins and shroud of cannabis lore, OG Kush has only become more prevalent. Growers and consumers alike can’t seem to keep their hands off of this strain.

OG Kush is famous for its pleasant, euphoric effects. Many patients with mood disorders or chronic stress love this strain for the blissful happiness it inspires. These upbeat, heady effects come with a significant Indica body high. While your mood may be light and airy, your body will likely be glued to the couch.

Recreational consumers also have reason to love OG Kush. Its sedative effects are just what you need if you want to come home and dominate your favorite video game or have a relaxing dinner with friends and family. Though, new consumers may find this hybrid a little too sedative. Its THC levels can run as high as 24%, making this flower quite potent.

 

Traits of OG Kush and OG Kush Seeds


When properly cured, this strain has a musty scent that will be familiar to fans of other Kush strains. These smells become more intense when the buds are broken up, with notes of citrus and pine joining the fray. The spicy smoke has a tendency to make marijuana consumers cough, while the aroma is likely to linger in the air for a long time after the weed is gone.

Such is the thickness of the trichomes on these buds that this strain can look almost snowy. Keep a grinder nearby if you want to bust this strain up — this is some sticky cannabis.

Growing Tips

You can tell that your OG Kush is grown properly when the buds are a bright, lime green color. They should be large, dense, and coated in crystals. Inexperienced growers may only get about 60 g/m2 from this strain, but seasoned growers who use professional techniques can get a lot more. For best results bring this strain indoors. You’ll want to keep this plant between 70 and 80°F (21 to 27°C), with an ideal temperature of 75°F (24°C). OG Kush does well in screen of green (SCROG) and sea of green (SOG) setups. This strain is known to stretch doing vegetative phase, but don’t worry! It will bulk up during flowering. Outdoors, OG Kush will need a hot, tropical climate. It can be pretty fussy, so you will need to be attentive. This strain likes to stretch its roots. If you do go outdoors, you may want to use a very large container or plant it where it will not be confined.
