Despite what you may have heard, the “OG” in “OG Kush” does not stand for “original genetics” nor does it stand for “original gangsta.” It stands for “Ocean Grown.”
This nearly perfect hybrid (55% sativa/45% indica) smells of thick, pine-needle laden soil and sour lemon rinds. When smoked, the flavor of burnt wood and pine sap pulls through.
Its cannabinoid content hovers between 21-24% THC and 1% CBN. Users mention seeking out OG Kush for its ability to alleviate the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, depression, PTSD, menstrual cramps, and attention deficit disorders. It provides an energetic, uplifting buzz with excellent focus and a wicked case of the munchies. It’s recommended for all day use.
Common side effects of OG Kush include cottonmouth and dry eyes.
If grown outdoors, OG Kush should be non-potted and in a dry climate. It typically produces medium yields.

OG Kush gets its name from its origin: the Los Angeles region of California. The story gets a bit murkier from there, but cultivators believe it’s descended from Hindu Kush and Chemdawg, although no one has ever been able to confirm this.
