OG Kush, also known as “Premium OG Kush,” was first cultivated in Florida in the early ‘90s when a marijuana strain from Northern California was supposedly crossed with Chemdawg, Lemon Thai and 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. OG often refers to “Original Gangster,” indicating either the strain’s authenticity or intensity. OG Kush should smell like lemon-pine-fuel with a high-THC, mixed head and body effect. It’s often enjoyed in the back half of the day to ease stress.
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 weed, including Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Ghost OG.
OG Kush effects
OG Kush’s primary terpenes are Beta-Myrcene and Beta-Caryophyllene, which give the strain its overwhelmingly earthy, spicy palette. Sour citrus and woody flavors peek in on the exhale, with hints of pine and other dank Kush flavors. The high starts pretty quickly, giving you a feeling of rushing sociability, chattiness, hunger, and a case of the giggles. You’ll be munching on food constantly, looking for anyone to talk to, and feeling completely relaxed the whole time. As the most famous cannabis strain out there, you can expect the most stereotypical high.
The strain is often used in social situations, to jumpstart a stubborn appetite, to relax out of a mood swing, to dispel a bout of depression, or evaporate a tiring headache. We recommend this strain for afternoon use on do-nothing days and as a companion with a bunch of friends (and plenty of snacks). You don’t become the most famous cannabis on accident – OG Kush, even against stiffer competition today, still earns its name.
