General Info

Maybe one of these most popular strains today, OG Kush is widely sought after in the legal cannabis market. A popular night time medicine, this strain provides a relaxing, stony body buzz perfect for disconnecting from the busy chaos of life.

While many confuse the OG in OG Kush for “original gangster”, it actually stands for “Ocean Grown”, as this strain originated on the southern coast of California. This nearly perfectly balanced hybrid, leans just slightly sativa dominant. The medium to large light green buds may have a few traces of purple under a silvery blanket of white trichomes. OG Kush has earthy aromas of wood, pine, and lemon.

 

Grow info

A very tall variety of the cannabis plant, OG Kush can grow taller than six and a half feet tall. While having a short flowering cycle of only 7-9 weeks, it can thrive both indoors and out, but this strain is still relatively difficult to grow and is suggested for experienced cannabis growers. At harvest, expect a modest yield of one to three ounces.

Airflow is critical for this strain which can be prone to developing powdery mildew. Keeping humidity levels low will also help avoid bud rot, so a drier climate is definitely preferred.
