OG Kush: The origins of mysterious cannabis strain
OG Kush is a legendary strain with a name that has recognition even outside the cannabis world. Despite its fame, however, its exact origins remain a mystery. Some claim it is a cross between the Chemdawg base and a Hardy Hindu Kush landrace. It is also possible that OG Kush emerged from the genetic makeup of undocumented seeds as a distinct phenotype of some other existing strain. The meaning of his name is also disputed – “OG” is said alternately to represent:original gangster“, which connotes its status as an old-fashioned strain;” Ocean Grower “, referring to its origin along the Californian coast; and even” OverGrown.com “, a now defunct website that served as a resource for countless cannabis growers.
One thing that is not in question is the potency of OG Kush: its THC composition has been consistently measured between 20% and 25%.
OG Kush has medium to large sized buds that have a dense, indica-shaped structure. The leaves are yellowish green, although some phenotypes may show traces of purple; the latter color is the result of anthocyanin pigments activated by the cold. Vibrant orange pistils, meant to capture pollen from male plant fertilizers, stand out against these colorful flowers in this cannabis strain.
The buds are covered with trichomes which give them a silvery-white appearance and make them very sticky to the touch. When properly seasoned, the inflorescences have an earthy and moldy scent accentuated by a certain citrusy brightness: the general impression is that of a hoppy craft beer. OG Kush smoke is commonly sour and can cause coughing. The smoke has a balsamic and spicy flavor like a classic indica on inhalation and exhalation. OG Kush’s pungent funk can linger for a while after a joint has gone out – anyone who wants to remain discreet about smoking should take precautions.
OG Kush’s high like any other indica is more focused more on the head than on the body. It starts with a sudden headrush that can cause users to feel more focused on their surroundings; sounds and colors may seem intensified. This altered sense could soon give way to a general mood lift that progresses to euphoria. The increase in focus is not as cerebral as with the purest sativa strains, more experienced smokers will not suffer from a disorienting sense of quick thinking or “mindrace” association. It is a versatile smoke that lends itself to mood and to user mentality.
The combination of mental stimulation and mood enhancement makes this cannabis strain a unique social strain, good for parties and lively conversations. It is also a great way to enhance activities that involve the body and mind, such as video games, exercise, and even sex. OG Kush has a medical application as a means of temporarily relieving anxiety and depression by helping users live in the moment. His sense of concentration can also be helpful for those suffering from attention deficit disorders. Some have reported relief from headaches and migraines with this strain as well. As with many sativas, OG Kush has the potential to make users feel paranoid with higher doses.
OG Kush can be grown indoors or outdoors. Growing outdoors requires constant temperatures around 25 degrees. Indoor cultivation tends to be more convenient for many, as the plants are generally short and bushy, with a height between 1.4-1.8 meters.
Cutting the wide fan leaves that grow towards the top of the plant can help light and air reach the flowering nodes on the lower branches. OG Kush plants flower within 9 weeks when grown indoors; growers can expect an average yield of around 45 grams or 280 grams per square meter. The unique feature of this strain also means that those looking to isolate the odors of their grow space should invest in measures such as carbon air filters or vacuums.
Due to its mildly energizing and uplifting effects, OG Kush is a strain to be enjoyed during the day or early evening. Its positive maximum can be enjoyed in festive social settings or alone, to accomplish any variety of tasks. It also has genetic stability to back up its popularity, OG Kush has been a staple, producing successful crosses like Bubba Kush and also offering some distinct phenotypes that have become a popular strain in its own right, such as Tahoe OG and Alpha OG.
