It was the first commercial strain to be blessed by a Rabbi, which has led some consumers to believe Kosher Kush brings improved bliss and enlightenment.
The effects of Kosher Kush are reported to be strong, and novice consumers should take heed. It’s a strain known to powerfully sedate, often helping consumers suffering from insomnia brought on by anxiety or stress as the cerebral effects will allow the mind to calm from racing thoughts.

Smoke this strain in the evening, as many of its users say it’s nearly impossible to get anything done while using this strain.
Though its origins can be traced to California, its genetics remain a mystery though it’s believed one of its parents is OG Kush. It was once named Jew Gold, but as it became popularized, the name was changed to Kosher Kush to avoid being offensive.
The scent of Kosher Kush is quite earthy, intensifying as its buds are broken up. Its taste is also pleasantly earthy with undertones of pine in its aftertaste. Best grown indoors, a well-cultivated batch will render dense, dark green nugs with a light dusting of trichomes. THC content averages at 15% and can get as high as 20%.
