All About OG Kush Weed Strain


OG Kush is a legendary and all-time favorite strain. This classic Indica has become one of the most essential types for crossings and creating other names in the cannabis industry. Its THC content is 18-21%, and its CBD amounts to 0.06-0.69%. Myrcene, limonene, and pinene are the dominant terpenes of the strain.

The OG Kush weed strain was developed by crossing the Hindu Kush landrace and Chemdawg, which was popular during the 1990s. This crossing became one of the most distinct strains in the western part of the United States; however, some people claim it was not from Florida. Also, there are disputes regarding the OG term. Some experts say that it means “original gangster,” which actually means “Ocean Grown” as it grew in California. The strain is highly popularized by Cypress Hill hip-hop band, which praised it for its medicinal values and unique taste and aroma.

Smell and Aroma

This weed is powerful, compact, dense, and highly aromatized, and smokers can recognize it among a ton of other buds! The earthy and pine odor is present as soon as you smell it, and it can have some citrus-like aroma upon the first encounter. As any from a Kush family, it produces a harsh skunky flavor that users cannot resist!

When smoked, it can induce coughing. Its distinct smell and flavor may be strong to some people, and its pungent funk won’t remain discreet after smoking a joint.

User Reviews


    Ok so here’s my thoughts about the Og Kush.
    It has a predominent earthy sweet smell, this was basically the same predominent aroma I found in Bruce Banner from an amsterdam coffeeshop, and also in the amnesia haze, but each of them has their own distinct smell when you smell deeper. When I grinded the buds it smelled more mango, a bit sour with sweet. I checked a lot of website about cannabis smell, cuz I didn’t get the earthy smell, which was apprently in almost every hybrid strains, so Now I get it.
    Anyway I expected the mango flavor but it turned out to be more earthy and woody. The high is very great, as many websites said, it started with a head rush (softer than I initially thought, like compared to the amnesia Haze, it was less aggressive) then you get stoned, with a nice visual distortion and happy thoughts. I’m not stuck in the couch, it makes me feel motivated but sedated at the same time, like think about of rock doing the dishes.
    Maybe I’m wrong, maybe you guys had another experience with the og, feel free to tell me.
