OG Kush or ‘Original Gangster’ as it’s known in some circles is an extremely potent Indica marijuana strain that comes from the San Fernando Valley in Southern California.
Rumour has it the OG Kush strain made its way to California under the name Chemdawg as a first generation clone. As a result it has only been available as a clone until recent years.
The smoke is what makes OG Kush a connoisseur’s choice. The first hit is an earthy, musty flavor with an aftertaste of lemon. Be warned, the instant kick delivered can catch even the hardiest of smokers off guard. Euphoric effects are to be expected with some visuals and a high that lasts anything up to three hours.
If grown correctly OG Kush seeds produce dense highly crystalline buds with visible THC crystals peppering the surface. It’s a popular choice for medicinal users thanks to its high THC content, which has been measured at around 25%.
OG Kush clones favor an indoors setup preferably using hydroponics. If grown correctly using a SCROG or SOG setup growers can expect to yield between 400-500 grams per square metre. It’s not the biggest yielding strain, however, the quality of the bud more than makes up for it. Average flowering time is 7-8 weeks depending on grow conditions.
Whilst growing outdoors isn’t out of the question growers should take particular care. Plenty of sunlight and almost tropical conditions are required to make it a worthwhile project.
The ‘OG’ in OG Kush might stand for ‘original gangsta’, ‘ocean grown’ or ‘organically grown’, either way it’s a top quality strain that should be handled with care.
