OG Kush strain makes up the genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, but in spite of its ubiquity, its genetic origins remain a mystery. Popular myth maintains that Chemdawg and Hindu Kush parented OG Kush strain. Thus, passing on the distinct “kush” bud structure we see in many strains today. However, we can’t be sure because it first came from bag seed in the early 90s.
The earliest propagators (now known as Imperial Genetics) are said to have brought the seeds out of Florida to Colorado and southern California, where it now flourishes. Fortunately, there are many different phenotypes, some of which include Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Alpha OG. This strain is cherished for its ability to crush stress under the weight of its heavy euphoria. As well as, it carries an earthy pine and sour lemon scent with woody undertones, an aroma that has become the signature. With OG Kush, patients most commonly cite improvements in migraines, ADD/ADHD, and stress disorders.
OG Kush typically features dense and compact buds that are bright green in color. With its, twisting orange pistils (hairs) interwoven throughout the flowers. The buds are often coated in a sticky layer of resinous trichomes, giving them a frosty and glistening appearance. One of the most distinguishing features of OG Kush is its strong and pungent aroma. In conclusion, the scent is a blend of earthy, pine, and citrus notes, often accompanied by hints of fuel or diesel. Finally, the complex combination of aromas contributes to the strain’s unique appeal.
