OG Kush makes up the genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, but in spite of its ubiquity, its genetic origins remain a mystery. This famed strain arrived in Los Angeles in 1995 after being transplant coast-to-coast from Florida by its original propagators (now known as Imperial Genetics), along with “The Bubba,” which gave way to Bubba Kush. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, some of which include Tahoe OG, SFV OG, Ghost OG, and Diablo OG.
OG Kush is cherished for its ability to crush stress under the weight of its heavy euphoria. It carries an earthy pine and sour lemon scent with woody undertones, an aroma that has become the signature of OG Kush varieties and descendants.
“The best strain of cannabis if I had the ultimate say so, the true definition of dank. Purchase in large quantities if possible, as it can heal in multiple facets. Can you work out after smoking it? Hell yeah. Can you sit on the couch all day and play the Playstation? You damn right. I love it, truly, and if it was all I could ever smoke, I'd die a happy and high fella. Peace to all.”
“Not good for my pain but good for getting rip-snortingly high. I use for chronic pain due to IC and for some reason this strain triggers a flare for me. Has a good flavor but comes with a wave of uncontrollable munchies.”
