It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that OG Kush might well be one of the most famous strains in the cannabis community. Debuting in Florida, she soon made her way to the West Coast and her potential was swiftly utilized by breeders to create countless hybrids – all of which bear aspects of her wonderful effects and flavors, but none of which quite have the same essence as the original herself.
With a unique terpene profile that lends a powerful fuel and skunk odor (not to mention the delectable hints of lemon) and impressive amounts of frosty trichomes that adorn her nugs, it’s not hard to see why this OG Kush is so highly revered. Still, very little is known about this herb’s origins, though the general consensus on the 420 scene is that her ancestry includes Old World Paki Kush, Chemdawg and Lemon Thai – though the influence of Hindu Kush, too, is undeniable.
No matter where she came from, this Indica-dominant herb can still provide fast-acting cerebral effects that induce a gentle euphoria and all-round happiness. That is, before a deep and intense body-stone hits and knocks you back to the couch for the foreseeable.
Of course, these effects can be used creatively to temper a variety of medical symptoms. For the mind, the upbeat effects of OG Kush can soothe away stress and depression. For the body, she eases every muscle and softens every kink to relieve pain from the likes of multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia.
Growing this fast version is fairly straightforward, and though a little experience is recommended, newbies should still be able to manage this herb well enough. More of an Indica than the original, OG Kush Fast Version is compact and ideal for indoor growing – though this small stature can also make for dense foliage, that requires a fair bit of TLC to keep healthy. Still, her yields are excellent for such a small strain, and even outdoors, she’ll do well.
