Buy OG Kush online
OG Kush was first cultivated in Florida, in the early ‘90s when a strain from Northern California was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. The result was a hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with notes of fuel, skunk, and spice.
An esteemed mix of strains
Royal Queen Seeds breeders worked hard to develop our own version of the legendary OG Kush. Using a mix of Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush, they created a well-rounded strain with high THC levels and bucket-loads of fruity terpenes. Overall, she features a stoning genetic profile of 75% indica genetics and 25% sativa.
Its true genetics are unknown. Some say OG Kush is a mix of ChemDawg with a Lemon Thai and Pakistani Kush. Others say that it’s just a special cutting of ChemDawg from the early 90s. Even the meaning of the name OG has been debated; with some saying it means Original Gangster. However, now, because of its origins, most people agree it means Ocean Grown.
Is OG Kush the most popular RQS strain?
One thing that is not debated is the popularity of this feminized cannabis strain. From Hollywood movie stars and rappers to medical marijuana users, OG Kush is loved by many. The most obvious trait of OG Kush is its strong, unique, very dank, slightly citrus aroma, almost like fuel or strong detergent. The flavour of OG Kush is equally as strong and dank, with a long-lasting aftertaste.
OG Kush provides a strong mental and physical high
OG Kush is an extremely strong cannabis strain, with most experienced smokers listing it as one of their favourites. The effect is as strong physically as it is mentally. Though its effect is like an Sativa, the strain’s genetics are mostly Indica. The effect is as strong and complex as the flavour. OG Kush takes around 8 weeks to flower and on average the yield is 500 grams per plant.
POPULAR CLASSIC FOR GOOD REASONS
One of the most notable strains in North America, OG Kush embodies the epitome of Californian cannabis. It has become one of the top strains to crossbreed, because of its proven quality and potency. OG Kush is a cross between Chemdawg and Hindu Kush. Chemdawg is a straight-to-the-brain hybrid, while Hindu Kush is a heavy Indica. These two strains would make OG Kush a perfect blend for any cannabis user.
No one knows for sure what OG stands for. Some believe it stands for “Original Gangsta”. Others believe, that the letter “OG” truly means “Ocean Grown” ” because Californian growers created this strain near the coast. Whatever it stands for, this variety hit the LA scene in the mid-90’s and quickly became the high standard for a new wave of strains coming out of California.
SMELL, TASTE AND EFFECT OF OG KUSH
OG Kush is known for its strength and complex aroma/flavour profile. The aroma/flavour is bold and attention-grabbing, with notes of earth, pine, diesel, spice and citrus. Typically testing between 19-25% THC and with up to 0.3% CBD, the intense high hits quickly with a buzzy body high and bright euphoria.
It’s a perfect hybrid for any occasion, but may vary somewhat due to its different phenotypes. Some users may get a stronger Indica feel with deep, relaxing effects, while others may have stronger sativa results and feel more euphoria at the beginning of their high. But everyone can agree it is a solid hybrid.
Users have indicated, that this strain is good for taking out stress and anxiety, but with its potency and high THC content, people who are sensitive should be aware, that this strain can bring on paranoia sometimes. Medicinal users enjoy OG Kush because it does help increase appetite for those individuals having trouble keeping food down or experiencing gastrointestinal issues. People also use OG Kush to relieve pain symptoms.
HOW TO GROW OG KUSH
The plant itself is bushy in stature and has strong, dense branches. The buds arelarge and dense with bright lime green colouring. OG Kush’s flowering period lasts around 55 days and should be harvested in October for outdoor growers.
The original genetics are Middle Eastern, so adjusting the microclimate to reflect those conditions is best suited for OG Kush. It is also suited to ScrOG and super cropping to increase yields.
OG Kush has been nominated as one of the “25 Greatest Strains of All Time” by High Times. It had even the highest lab-tested THC concentration at the Denver Cannabis Cup in 2013, testing at 24%. The list of cannabis cup awards is too high to count, because OG Kush is a part of so many phenotypes and crossbreeds. But, the main reason OG Kush is chosen for competitions is due to its solid, consistent across-the-board strength and enjoyability.
THC levels of 19% drive a high that soothes the body and mind in equal measure. Delicious scents and tastes of citrus, pine, and fruit augment the high and will leave you craving another hit… and another such as Sherb cake. High concentrations of the terpenes myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene underpin her recognisable aroma.
Growers can easily achieve higher yields by employing basic training techniques. Topping early in the vegetative stage will force plants to produce multiple main stems and more flowering sites. Both main-lining and low-stress training will help keep her bushy and dense canopy under control and adequately aerated.
blooms big buds with lovely hues
OG Kush is known to stretch slightly during growth but soon starts to fill out during flowering. Generally, it will reach a height of 90 to 160 cm. Its buds are large and dense, lime green clusters covered with a large amount of resin. There are many good reasons why OG Kush has become so popular. Now available as a feminized variety from Royal Queen Seeds, so you can try out this amazing strain yourself.
The genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, OG Kush arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it (along with “The Bubba,” which was later used to create the famed Bubba Kush) from Florida to legendary cultivator Josh D. Since then, OG Kush has become a worldwide staple used to create numerous famous strains like GSC and Headband. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, including Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Ghost OG.

What The “OG” in OG Kush Stands For
There are a lot of common misconceptions surrounding OG Kush, most notably the confusion where the strain comes from and what specific genetics this strain consists of. There are many mysterious legends about OG Kush and what ‘OG’ stands for, however… the truth remains unproven to this day.
One of the most promising accounts explaining the origins of the strain is below:
- Kailua Kidfrom the Sierra Seed Company believes that in late 93’ a grower in northern California got his hands on the famous Chemdawg He goes on to say (summarized from Seedfinder.eu), that this was shared with a fellow grower from Sunset Beach who claimed he had a male that was the, “secret ingredient,” for breeding. The male was a cross of Lemon Thai and an Old World Paki Kush (possibly where the ‘Kush’ came from), and was an ideal mix for the Chemdawg. The buds became wildly popular in Los Angeles by ’95.
We also came across a number of other (less-likely) theories about the origins of OG Kush and try to explain what ‘OG’ stands for. Some people believe that the ‘OG’ is a memorial to OverGrown.com, which was the world’s largest cannabis grow site until 2006 when they were shut down by the Canadian police for, “illegally distributing seeds.” Others believe that ‘OG’ stands for, “Original Gangster,” which was a strain from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. It is thought that this is the plant that produced the OG’s that became so famous in southern California, putting the area on the medical marijuana map.
High In Demand, Low In Supply
“OG Kush is known to be fairly difficult to grow; typically producing low yields if grown incorrectly.”
This also makes it a risky investment for growers, which tends to drive down the supply. Despite that fact, OG Kush is highly sought out for because of its unique taste, scent, look, feel and high, which is definitely not for the feint of heart.
The compact buds are almost neon green in color, with heavy crystallization that will leave your fingers extremely sticky after handling. When grown properly, the strain is a delicacy that deserves a spot on every marijuana enthusiast’s wish list.
