This Indica-dominant hybrid with 25:75 Sativa/Indica ratio is not for the faint of heart. With an average THC of 25% and with up to 0.3% CBD, the intense high hits quickly with a buzzy body high and bright euphoria. So, what does it feel like? Expect a knock-out high, mixed high with intense uplifting euphoria. This is not for novice users. If you’re dealing with anxiety, bipolar, depression, pain or nausea, OG Kush can alleviate some of these symptoms.
The strain’s genetics are still a point of discussion, but the most widely accepted consensus is that it is a cross between the popular Chemdawg strain, Old World Paki Kush and Lemon Thai. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush – you may have heard of some including Tahoe OG, SFV OG, Ghost OG, and Diablo OG.
Taste, Aroma and Appearance
You can look forward to medium to large, dense buds with vibrant orange pistils and crystal trichomes. Well-cured leaves offer a herbal, pungent, spicy and earthy aroma and the flavour boasts a lemon, pine and woody taste. The aroma is potent and attention-grabbing, with notes of earth, pine, diesel, spice and citrus.
For medical marijuana users, OG Kush has been known to offer relief from depression, migraines and anxiety and for dealing with disorders such as ADHD. As this potent strain boosts energy and increases focus, it is suitable for day time use. But, it is also equally enjoyable in the evenings for relaxation. With one of the highest THC levels in the world (typically between 20-25%), OG Kush is an American cannabis classic that will catapult you into the stars. ‘OG’ jokingly stands for Original Gangster, the name of the strain produced in San Fernando Valley Strain in LA. As well as having some of the highest THC levels on the market, this strain won 1st prize for the Weedmaps March Madness competition in 2020 and was nominated by High Times as one of the “25 Greatest Strains of All Time”.
