OG Kush, also called Premium OG Kush, was created during the early 1990s in Florida. No one is sure how OG Kush was made. However, it’s been suggested in the cannabis industry that the genetics originate from popular strains (cultivars) such as Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, or Old World Paki Kush, which could have been cross-bred to produce this plant.
This plant is renowned for its unique terpene profile, which gives it a strong aroma of lemon. Many say it’s one of the most uplifting cannabis strains available. OG Kush’s effects suggest it helps manage anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Another top-reported effect is hunger, so OG Kush may benefit appetite loss and cachexia associated with cancer or AIDS/HIV.
OG Kush is an indica-dominant strain. Most plants are 55% indica and 45% sativa, although there could be slight variations with different crossbreeds. This plant has high THC levels of around 26%, and OG Kush also contains some CBD.
This plant is recommended for expert growers because it does not like being confined to a flower pot, instead preferring plenty of space to grow outdoors.
