The term "Kush" is commonly used to refer to a subset of strains originating in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan, near the Hindu Kush mountain range. Since this area is known for its pure Indica landrace strains, the name OG Kush leads many to assume that this famous strain must be at least predominantly Indica.
There are several rumors about OG Kush's lineage, but most signs point to Chemdawg
The two most plausible stories about OG Kush's genetics both link it to the legendary Chemdawg, whose own origins are murky, but which is generally agreed to be a Sativa-dominant hybrid. Some say that OG Kush is the result of Chemdawg crossed with a hybrid of Lemon Thai and Pakistani Kush, while others insist that it is simply a phenotype of Chemdawg. Whether it actually contains only a small percentage of Kush ancestry or none at all, OG Kush is something of a misnomer.
While OG Kush's genetics are primarily sativa, its heavy body effect feels a lot like an Indica
Real OG Kush is available as a clone only, but the easily marketable name is frequently applied to similar or not-so-similar seeds and strains. Her flowers are neon green, small and dense, with a thick coating of sticky resin and a dank, pungent, even astringent aroma of lemon and pine.
The flavor is sweet and sour citrus with some earthiness, fuel, and spice, and the effect is potent and intense, hitting suddenly with a powerful physical buzz and euphoric mental trance. Some describe it as energetic while others find it narcotic, but everyone agrees that it's strong to the point of being potentially debilitating. OG Kush offers deep muscle relaxation and provides long-lasting relief of a wide range of ailments including nausea, migraines, depression, and anxiety.
