OG Kush is an American marijuana classic, a Southern California original. With a 25:75 sativa/indica ratio, this strain pulls no punches. The plant’s THC concentration can reach levels as high as 19-24%
Expect a hard, mixed high with intense euphoria followed by serious couch-lock. The cerebral boost from OG Kush is ideal for depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety, while the heavy body high can help with pain as well as nausea. This strain is also used to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Dry mouth and dry eyes are the most common negative effects, though headaches and paranoia are also possible.
OG Kush has medium to large nugget-like buds that have a dense, indica-like structure. This strain is a hybrid, a descendant of a female Chemdawg plant and a male Hindu Kush plant. The result was an indica-dominant hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with notes of fuel, skunk, and spice. OG Kush, which has given rise to countless West Coast strains, has an earthy, wood taste and a strong pine scent. It’s most popular in California, the Pacific Northwest, and Colorado.
