Most experts classify the OG Kush strain as a hybrid, although little is actually known about its true genetic origins (rumors claim the strain may be a blend between parent plants Chemdawg and Hindu Kush ).
With THC levels routinely registering in the 20-27% range, for instance, the punch that OG Kush packs is especially powerful — truly a power hitter for anyone who consumes it.
OG Kush Strain Review: Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of stuffing your nose in a jar of top-shelf OG Kush, you’ll know that the nuggets have one of the freshest scents that nature can produce – intensely reminiscent of being lost within a dank, old growth forest.
The strain’s aroma is woodsy, piney and earthy all at once, immediately hitting your taste buds with a spunky, rabbit-like jab. Moreover, its flavor can surprise even the most jaded of self-proclaimed stoners, with none-too-subtle undertones of lime, lemon, and spice – as well as faint hints of citrusy splash.
If you are deciding to grow OG Kush weed, we recommend the task be tackled by those looking to become professional marijuana growers. For the amount of work, there isn’t a huge incentive for at-home consumers to grow this strain for personal use — unless of course you’re up for a hell of a challenge.
OG Kush is one of the most beloved marijuana varieties in the world. There are a few reasons for that, although “Reefer Man” by Cypress Hill probably does have a lot to do with it. Not only does it boast fresh, sweet aromas and flavors with hints of citrus, spice, and everything nice, but the high is also intense and euphoric, both mentally and physically, thanks to OG Kush’s high THC and low CBD percentage.
Between the taste and the effects, and the cool name, it’s no wonder why rappers love OG Kush, along with the rest of the cannabis community. But you can’t just throw the word Kush in with another word to make a great strain. The proof is in the bud, which often comes at a high cost due to high demand and (of course) its ability to get you stoned like no other. To lead you to the best cannabis featuring the most famous modern genetics of them all, here are the top 10 strains with OG Kush in their genetic lineage.
One of the Parents is Part of the prominent line of Chemdawg strains, Chemdawg 4 is unlike its counterparts as it is indica-dominant. Known to affect users with a head sensation within the first five minutes, the effects can often be full-body. Its smell has been likened to citrus or even Pine-Sol, with a lemon flavor.
The other parent is the infamous SFV OG Kush, not to be confused with its precursor SFV OG, is an indica-dominant strain bred from OG Kush genetics by The Cali Connection. By crossing an SFV OG clone with an Afghani father and selecting for favorable traits over several generations, the indica-heavy SFV OG Kush was born. You can smell the OG genes in this one, as its odor is commonly described as a strong lemon cleaner smell intermixed with pine.
