OG Kush is an old school strain that was first cultivated in Florida. It is believed that a strain from Northern California was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant that originated from Amsterdam. This strain has been a staple in creating a variety of other famous strains such as Girl Scout Cookies and is still well-received today. The resulting cross is a hybrid kush with a serious punch and a unique terpene profile. In other words, expect a hard-hitting mixed high with an intense cerebral high along with some serious couch-locking indica effects.
Being an indica-dominant strain with a 75:25 ratio, OG Kush surprisingly produces quite a head-focused high. It often starts with a headrush that increases focus and attention span. Sensory perception may also be exaggerated in some users. A general sense of happiness and euphoria will take over the user producing an uplifted state of mind and mood. This strain has pleasant sativa effects that will not overwhelm the user by disorienting the senses and mind which is typical of other sativa strains. Following the sativa cerebral effects, a heavy sense of relaxation will take over the body and laziness may take over. Users will experience heavy couch-lock and soon after, sleepiness. We recommend this strain for evening use. If you plan on smoking during the day, it is best to time it right to avoid couch-locking and laziness when not at home. This strain is great for enhancing short activities followed by relaxing.
OG Kush is a popular choice among medicinal users. Many use it to treat conditions such as:
- Lack of appetite
Users often do not experience adverse side effects such as paranoia and anxiety. However, cotton mouth and dry eyes are noticeable and common.
Appearance, Aroma, and Taste
OG Kush has medium to large nugs and is quite dense, which is typical of indica-dominant plants. The leaves are pale green with a moderately dense coating of trichomes. When taking a whiff, users will notice a heavy earthiness and woodiness with hints of pine and maybe even lemon depending on the phenotype. The smoke is a little harsher than usual due to its dominant indica genetics but overall, it is still an enjoyable and great smoke. When smoking, it has a strong earthiness that sticks on the tongue for some time after.
