OG Kush Marijuana Strain

OG Kush

DNA Genetics

Origins: Los Angeles Kush x SFV strain
Flowering: 57-60 days
Harvest: mid September

The “Original Gangster” OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North. Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest indica today.

The OG Kush was formally a clone only strain. She stretches in veg but seems to fill herself out in flower. She has smaller nugs that you can get a good yield from if you supercrop her while she’s growing. OG Kush prefers to be grown indoors in a hydroponic setup.

OG Kush, when properly grown, has the highest THC content of all kushes and is sometimes so strong, it “makes your teeth hurt” after you smoke a bowl. When smoked, it feels like a wake-up shot to the head, not unlike an espresso, which makes this smoke perfect as a pick-me-up during a long day of physical labor. Having said this, it is not recommended to smoke OG Kush before bed, as it is known to speed up the heart rate and keep the user awake.

There is also another well known OG lineage that was developed in Northern California, and this story went something like this.. A guy – we’ll call him KushDawg for the sake of this story – living somewhere on the Northern California Pacific Coast was growing the original cut from San Fernando Valley, the birthplace of most herb carrying the “OG” label. One evening, KushDawg was hanging out at a local bar when another chap also sitting at the bar offered him a bowl of some very special weed. Intrigued, KushDawg accepted the offer. Once the chap opened the bag and the dank, pungent OG aroma lifted into the air, KushDawg knew immediately, unbeknownst to the chap, that this was in fact his own herb. As they toked the glorious herb, the chap rendered his own opinion as to the origin of the herb, saying that it was so great because it was “Mountain Grown.” KushDawg corrected the chap, “Naw man, this stuff is ‘Ocean Grown,'” meaning that the herb was actually grown indoors on the Pacific Coast.

    Spent the summer trimming on the hill known for the first “Ocean Grown”.
    Heard the story from some old hippies, really cool to hear it from another source.

  • Stallatik

    White Shark hybrid with 3rd Deminsion from alien Gemetics. If only fruity pebble seeds were attainable!! But how can you trust people with seeds rarely does anybody get the seed from the original source unless they are friends or connected to that bank. But if anybody wants quality hybrids that aren’t out there ; )

  • Bruce Gilbert

    Bdp was closer to knowing what he was talking about then most of you. ! It did get started ingrass valley and yes Iit is a sativa/indica cross fromsome brick mexican herb and old fashion skunk. A skunk male and sativa female. But the persons name who accidently didnt catch his male before it did its thing was Ellze Hayden ( RIP ) and road it was a pure accident ….and what O.G. stood for was outlaw green ….and your welcome

  • Skunky Junky

    I know of no other strain that delivers like this one does… and I have been smoking SoCal herb for over 23 years…. the OG is the shit!

  • afro

  • cactusjack

    UNBELIEVABLE! I had to ask the man himself BUBBA KUSH who is the ONLY GUY that knows the truth. BUBBA KUSH who was in HIGH TIMES is the OG KUSH master who discovered the strain! Stay tuned as he is scheduling a WEBINAR to show how to grow effectively.

    • natalie

      I am a licensed patient in Ontario, Canada who is seriously ill and cannot locate OG kush anywhere locally. I am not mobile, housebound now.
      Please give my phone number out to anyone who can help me.

  • Jarvis

    South Memphis kush home bitch castaila shit Lil niggas!!! That young

  • puff daddy

    I love og strain. I’ve grown a few others but they need everything perfect. This og loves all conditions. Even in the winter it grows. Down south closer to the coast it will grow more leaf but still grows(outdoor winter buds). AWESOME STRAIN. even beginners can grow this stuff. Nice tight stinky nugs. Super crop this strain and look out. Oh ya makes tons of keef. Roll it into a ball and voila sick hash.

  • Scallop Taters

    Ocean Grown AIDS for days. Lol bo derek types indeed Ronny

  • AcidWitch

    SFV OG is sativa dominant as well I know my genetics.

  • willienugget

    To clarify, I’m not sure of the exact genetics of OG Kush. Neither do you. But I can tell you it’s not mostly indica which is what I said in the first place. If you can find the genetics of chemdog then we can talk. Otherwise we’ll just disagree on what it is and agree that it’s killer bud.

  • willienugget

    Just read this thread. Besides calling it an indica, everything about it suggests sativa. Stretches in veg, small nugs. Great for a pick me up ‘during’ and not recommended for bedtime. Why? Because it’s a sativa that’s why.

  • willienugget

    Well anonymous, I’ve smoked plenty of OG’s and while they all pack a nice indica punch, none are dominant indica and most certainly not mostly kush. Laugh all you want young pup. You can’t show anything that even suggests genetics leaning toward indica.

  • willienugget

    I think it’s funny someone wants to be right so badly that he completely blows past the big error. Who really gives a crap what OG stands for? If you took the time to read the article you pasted, you’d find that OG Kush is barely even a kush at all and certainly not a heavy indica; though it will knock you on your ass like one.

    • Anonymous

      LOL @willienugget – if you don’t think OG is an indica, you must’ve never grown or smoked true OG lol. it has all of the indica characteristics both when grown and smoked, and none of the sativa ones!

      • AcidWitch

        Real og kush is sativa dominant. Just look at the genetics two of its parents are sativas and the other indica. Og kush is a cross of chem 91, lemon thai and an old world pakastani kush. Grow og kush it is a tall lanky sativa like plant with spear shaped buds. You can get indica dominant phenos though but og kush is straight sativa dominant. If aint sativa dominant than it aint real og kush.

      • AcidWitch

        Those facts came from chemdawg himself. And if you don’t know chem 91 came from a pack of seeds at a grateful dead show. You will also see people who say sour deisel is a cross of og kush with chemdawg which is wrong. Real sour deisel is a cross of chem 91, mass super skunk and a northern lights #5.

  • Ronald Donald Jonald

    LOL @ the “Bo Derek” types telling these elaborate yet fraudulent tales. They may be true stories but yall certainly had no part in any of it but smoking the strain…

  • bluntbrad

    You guys are a bunch of stoners. Why dont you read the article. He tells you that both versions of the OG are out there. Ocean Grown-NorthernCA
    Original Gangsta-SouthernCA

    Should we believe these guys who are doing their best to educate us, on the truth? Or some stoners who heard, from a budy, who heard from a budy. blah blah

  • Detje Bea

    Just tried it a few months ago and just love it. I use it for pain and fatigue due to my RA disease. I love how you worded this article. OG all the way.

  • Zak P

    LOL it makes me laugh when people refer to OG as Original Gangster it does’nt stand for original ganster and never has OG means OCEAN GROWN Period

    • kgb

      Laughter is healthy! 😉 But the OG from the San Fernando Valley always stood for “Original Gangster”..

      • Jacob

        I beg to differ! 🙂

        • kgb

          i met the family that grew OG out here in the SF Valley back in 2001, and they have always referred t it as Original Gangsta. the “Ocean Grown” OG’s didn’t hit the market out here until a few years later. And to this day, most OG’s in Southern California come from the “Original Gangsta” family.

          • Bbp

            You have no idea what you’re talking about…

            OG is ocean grown. Was originally ocean grown. Has always been ocean grown until Ice Tea made a song…

            Do some research and educate yourself…

            Majority of Kush came from the mountains. For years. I’m talking about before you were born. Talking about 1000s of years ago in the Hindu Mtns… Now here’s the story..

            “In late ’93 John from Grass Valley Ca. got the Chem Dog cut. He shared it with me, Jerry(cowboy) from Dibble Creek Ca. and Harold(Putz) from Sunset Beach Ca. Putz had a male he called the secret ingredient. It was a cross of Lemon Thai and an Old World Paki Kush. Putz bred the secret ingredient to the Chem Dog. The buds that came out of this cross were going around So. L.A. county in ’95. Someone told Putz that Kush must be so good because it was mountain grown. Putz laughed and told him “this Kush is Ocean Grown Kush bro”. The tag stuck and it became known as OG Kush.”

      • StonedFox

        You are correct. Also BG Baby Gangster. There was even the lamer IE for Inland Empire.

    • Jacob

      That’s what I was thinking!

  • jujubean

    there must be different phenotypes of OG going around, as some make me very sleepy, and others do just the opposite, speeding up my heart rate and waking me up…

  • onelove

    i love that there are sooo many OG hybrids out there nowadays! everything from pure og, sour og, fire og, platinum, etc.. one of my favs is NYC kush, which is a cross of OG with NYC Diesel. it has that sour diesel taste, and the strength of OG – pperfect!

  • LizzyJ

    Nothing beats the OG! I’ve always loved super strong indicas, and OG always tops that list. I love smoking OG when I have chores to do, like cleaning up, laundry, gardening, etc.. Not a very social smoke for me, but best for getting stuff done.
