About OG Kush
OG Kush is a legendary strain with a reputation that is known well outside of the field of cannabis. However, in spite of its fame, its precise sources remain a mystery. It’s a cross between the staple Chemdawg and the hardy Hindu Kush landrace, some say. OG Kush may also have arisen as a distinct phenotype of any other existing strain from the undocumented bag crop. The meaning of its name is often disputed-the “OG” was alternately said to stand for: “original gangster,” connoting its status as an old-school building block strain; “ocean grown,” referring to its roots along the coast of California; and also “OverGrown.com,” a now-defunct website that acted as a guide for countless weed growers. The strength of OG Kush is one thing that is not up for debate; its THC composition has been reliably estimated at between 20% and 25%.
OG Kush has nugget-like buds that are medium to wide with a thick, indica-like structure. The leaves are yellowish green, while hints of purple can be seen by some phenotypes; the latter color is the product of cold weather triggering anthocyanin pigments. Against these bright flowers, vivid orange pistils, designed to absorb pollen from fertilizing male plants, stand out.
The buds are coated with trichomes, which give them a silvery-white look and make them very sticky to the touch. Consumers will want to use a grinder while prepping buds for a joint or a pipe. The buds have an earthy, musty smell when fully cured, which is accentuated with some citrusy brightness: the general feeling is of a hoppy craft beer. Much of a pine-like odour is produced by burning or splitting open the buds. OG Kush smoke is usually harsh and cough-inducing; it can burn the sinuses and water the eyes. Like a classic Indica on the inhale and exhale, the smoke tastes hashy and spicy. After a joint has been extinguished, OG Kush’s pungent funk can continue for a while. Those who wish to stay quiet about their smoking should take the necessary precautions.
The high is more head-focused than emotional, from OG Kush. It begins with a rapid headrush that can cause users to become more focused on their surroundings; it can tend to amplify sounds and colours. This improvement in the senses may quickly give way to a general mood uplift that advances toward euphoria. The concentration rise is not as cerebral as in more pure sativas-smokers would not suffer from a disorienting feeling of “mindrace” or quick thinking association. It is a dynamic smoke that lends itself to the mood and attitude of the person. The mixture of mental stimulus and mood enhancement allows this a special social strain, suitable for parties and vibrant discussions. It’s also a fantastic way to develop behaviours, such as video games, exercise, and even sex, that involve the body and mind.OG Kush has medical uses as a way of helping people survive in the moment to temporarily alleviate anxiety and depression. For those suffering from attention deficit problems, its sense of concentration may also be beneficial. With this pressure, some have reported relief from headaches and migraines as well. OG Kush has the ability to make consumers feel paranoid with higher doses, as with many sativa types.
It is possible to expand OG Kush indoors or outdoors. Consistent temperatures of around 75 degrees Fahrenheit are needed for outdoor cultivation. As plants are usually small and bushy, rising between 2 and 3.5 feet tall, indoor growing seems to be more practical for many. Topping can help light and air enter flowering nodes on the lower branches by trimming the large fan leaves that grow toward the top of the plant. When grown indoors, OG Kush plants flower within 9 weeks; growers should expect an average yield of approximately 45 grams or 1.6 ounces per square foot. The pungency of this strain also suggests that those trying to separate the odors of their growing room should invest in steps such as carbon air filters or exhaust fans.
OG Kush is a strain better enjoyed in the afternoon or early evening, because of its slightly energizing and uplifting effects. In festive social settings or alone, the optimistic high can be enjoyed for carrying out any number of activities. OG Kush has become a building stone, delivering good crossbreeds such as Bubba Kush and also providing several distinct phenotypes that have been common in their own right, such as Tahoe OG and Alpha OG. It also has the genetic consistency to sustain its popularity.
