OG Kush is a legendary strain, known for its high THC percentages and role in creating other popular strains. This indica heavy hybrid hits hard, bringing about an intensely euphoric and cerebral high.
OG Kush is loved by both medical and recreational users, being really helpful for those struggling with anxiety, depression, or chronic pain. With how versatile this strain is, it’s easy to see why so many people choose this strain!
OG Kush is a world-wide staple of the cannabis industry and has been recognized as an American classic. The OG strain originated in Los Angeles when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it from Florida to legendary cultivator Josh D, who was known for creating famous strains like GSC and Headband using this genetic backbone that he obtained from Bubba. A strain with a 25% sativa/75% indica ratio, this hybrid pulls its weight. Expect an intense high that will leave you couch-locked and euphoric.
The plant’s THC content can reach levels as high at 19%-24%, just 1 percentage point less than the current record holder for highest concentration of THC found in any cannabis bud on earth. For most users, OG Kush produces consistent effects: heady cerebral sensations combined with deep body highs accompanied by a feeling of peace and relaxation – making it perfect to use before bedtime or during times when one needs to enjoy some downtime.
OG Kush is a heavy-duty strain that stimulates your brain and body. Because of its potency and combination of mental and physical effects, this strain is able to treat a wide range of ailments and diseases, providing relief to many. It’s most often used to treat pain, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or Alzheimer’s disease. The soothing aspects of this strain allow for the user to relax their mind and watch as their anxiety and negative moods fade away into bliss.
Apart from these benefits it also has an excellent reputation for being versatile because, like we mentioned before, you can use OG Kush in many other ways too! The cerebral effects make it popular with vets suffering from PTSD-related symptoms as well, creating a safe and calming environment for the user. Similarly the pleasant body high makes OG Kush an effective choice for those coping with pain or movement disorders like Parkinson’s Disease.
Potentially Adverse Effects
The sky-high THC potency of OG Kush may be an issue for the uninitiated. One toke can do it, and many users claim they get a case of dry eyes or evil cottonmouth following only one session with this strain. To avoid these side effects, keep water nearby as well as some Visine. Moreover, like most strains, not all people are affected by OG Kush in the same way – while some find that it helps alleviate headaches others report dizziness after indulging in just a few hits. Still, there’s no question about its positive mood enhancing properties: nearly everyone who smokes says their high leaves them feeling happy , euphoric, and relaxed.
Appearance-wise, most would probably agree that OG Kush has a fairly “traditional cannabis” look. It features the classic yellow-green sugar leaf color with orange pistils and green sometimes sage shaded water leaves. The buds are densely coated with crystalline trichomes making perfect sense when considering to heavy THC content of this strain – more than one noob may have mistaken the trich laden nuggets for mold!
Flavor And Aroma
OG Kush, also known as “Premium OG Kush,” is a hybrid that’s been around since the early ’90s. It was first cultivated in Florida when someone crossed it with Chemdawg and Hindu kush plants from Amsterdam for its unique terpene profile of fuel, skunk, spice; strong pine scent (earthy wood taste).When properly cured, the buds have a earthy and musty scent that is accented by some citrus-like brightness: the overall impression is of hoppy craft beer.
Burning or breaking open the buds offers more of a pine-like odor. Smoke from OG Kush commonly has an harsh cough inducing quality; it may sting your sinuses and cause water to form in your eyes. The smoke tastes spicy like a classic indica on both inhalation and exhalation with its pungent funk lingering for quite awhile after you’ve extinguished joint — those looking to remain discreet about their smoking should take proper precautions.
The OG Kush marijuana strain is so popular that it sells out quickly at many respected dispensaries and other recreational shops. Even with so many options, high-grade OG Kush nuggets maintain an absurdly high demand among the most reputable dispensaries in the country. This cannabis strain requires close monitoring especially for climate and environment to ensure it reaches maturity, which takes between 8 and 9 weeks. Many growers opt for cultivating this marijuana indoors because they can control its growth easier than outdoors where there are more variables like weather that might affect cultivation time or product quality of yield.
Your plants are a key part of your home or business. It is important that they have everything they need to be healthy and produce the best quality possible, which can only happen in an environment where there’s perfect humidity with enough light from natural sunlight during certain hours. It’s been reported that the highest yields are usually obtained through growing OG Kush in a hydroponic setup. This strain gets 15-19 ounces per meter squared when grown indoors and 13-19 ounces on average per plant outdoors!
