OG Kush Strain Information
OG Kush may be the most original weed strain of all time, literally. This cannabis plant is the backbone for the whole OG family and has given birth to some of the most legendary weed strains to cannabis culture. It’s heavily praised and has gained popularity from being featured in movies and more!
Because this strain is so deep in history, its exact genetics is hard to confirm, but some believe it could have been crossed with an early Chemdawg or Hindu Kush. Nowadays the majority believe that the word “OG” means Original Gangster but some people refer to it as “Ocean Grown Kush”, most likely referring to how it used to grow close by the sea, by the California Bay. If a strain has this title, then many people consider it to be a strain worthy of attention. In this case, it’s the most original of OG strains!
OG Kush has a lot of earthiness coming out of it and really being a landmark for many Kush strains. It’s a unique pungency and holds a complex aroma of gassy fuel, skunk, and aromatic spices. Since this strain is often used for hybridization, every single strain that descends from OG Kush has this same skunky and spicy earthiness, a sort of dank, damp, dark earth sort of aroma that is instantly recognizable.
A lot of those same aromas help to add some complexity to the flavour of OG Kush. You’re going to get that earthy, dank sort of flavour right out of the gate. But you’re also going to get a bit of spice and a bit of pepper into the mix, too. The smoke has a bite that a lot of other Kush strains don’t, it’s a little bit like the smoke you’d expect to get off of a barbecue. At the end of the day, all of those earthy flavours are intertwined with a hint of citrus which rounds everything quite nicely without being overpowering.
OG Kush nugs have a unique and dense Indica-like structure, which is kind of wild considering the fact that this is a sativa-dominant hybrid in nature. The buds themselves are generally medium to larger-sized nugget-looking buds, chunky and heavy. The leaves are a green-yellow sort of blend with just orange patches glistening in trichomes. This bud is a beauty to look at, it’s definitely photogenic!
