OG Kush is the stuff of legend. Hailing from Southern California this indica-dominant cannabis variety has not one but two myths associated with its name. Ocean Grown Kush or Original Gangster Kush, take your pick. The latter was probably adopted after this weed became a big hit with some of the biggest names in rap music.
OG Kush is a 70% indica hybrid marijuana with a great taste and a fantastic effect. It was produced by crossing a Lemon Thai/Pakistani and Chemdawg. It grows indoors and also does well outdoors in warm and temperate climates. Indoor yields are between 350- – 525 gr/m2 in a relatively short flowering period of 55 – 60 days. When grown outdoors the yield will be between one and two kilos per plant with each one reaching two to three meters in height. It is quite a straightforward strain to cultivate even though it is somewhat sensitive to moisture so if growing in a soil mix or coco coir it is recommended not to supply too much water at any one time.
During growth the aroma is of ripe tropical fruits. Once harvested and dried this becomes more complex with lemon, diesel fuel and noble woods apparent. The taste also features these qualities with the addition of tropical fruits and spice and it has been likened to lemon cleaner although we prefer not to make a direct comparison ourselves. THC production is high at 20% with very low CBD at 0.1%. The effect of OG Kush is powerful and very long-lasting providing smokers and vapers with a very deeply relaxing mind and body high.
