OG Kush makes up the genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, but in spite of its ubiquity, its genetic origins remain a mystery. This famed strain arrived in Los Angeles in 1995 after being transplant coast-to-coast from Florida by its original propagators. (Now known as Imperial Genetics)
A Californian grower (by the name of John, living in Grass Valley) who, by the end of 1993, got hold of a cutting of the famous ChemDog strain, which he shared with two other growers: Jerry (of Dibble Creek) and Harold (Putz) of Sunset Beach, in Orange county. Putz crossed the cutting with a secret ingredient: a Thai Lemon and Old World Paki Kush hybrid.
The first buds which resulted from this mix started circulating through the LA counties in 1995, and one person told Putz after tasting it that its flavor could only come from a mountain-grown Kush. Putz laughed and answered “this Kush is ocean-grown, bro”. The name stuck and the strain has been known ever since as OG Kush. OG Kush was finalized through 3 generations of stabilization in the San Fernando Valley.
The term “Kush” typically refers to a group of strains indigenous to Afghanistan and North Pakistan, near the Hindu Kush mountain range. Since this region is known for its pure Indica strains, the name OG Kush leads many to think that this strain must be at least mostly Indica. That’s exactly right: OG Kush’s genetics is composed of 75% Indica and 25% Sativa.
I love when I walk into the shop and it gets all Cheers like. One of my favorite Bud Tenders walks over and says “oh, you gotta sample some of this today”. Now I love a good shopping day, but a good sample day can be even better; and this guy rarely disappoints. With a crooked smile I replied “I’ll bite, whatcha got?” He led me over to the case and pointed out the new Trichome Express arrivals. Nice package I thought to myself as he went on to say things like lowest ppm BHO and in my head I hear the chinging of price tag and lose interest a bit. Then he tells me the retail price – I started to listen. The seemingly low retail price point bundled with the shop’s 30% medical discount plus standard state tax discount brings this gram of crumble to just a bit under $20. OK, I’ll take a sample.
Five minutes? Hell, first exhale gave me a perfect heady feeling. Light enough to go grab some shit to drink and have another dab and go have a sit. For the next 4:51 seconds, a general euphoria came over. It was a beautiful day out, and I had just come in from chasing some cows off the homestead but hey, feelin good.
West Coast. Oh my Indica friend. If you know me you know I love a good, strong, kick your ass Indica and this was giving it to me. Some shit was on TV, I did stare at it for a while and kinda gave a bit of off the cuff commentary to the annoyance to anyone around me.
Oh, I guess I did have two dabs. I’m right were I was @10am. Amazing crumble.
OUTSTANDING. the most amazing I’ve ever had at this price point. The taste here was no joke, that perfect oily exhale. Perfect Nose.
Threw me for a loop. I was doing this review, so I had a nice big nectar collector draw and on exhale my neighbor knocked on the door. He had come over to help me herd his cows back to his land (they love my apple tree) so we hunted around the woods having a blast looking for invisible cows (really, it was reality) before I came home and had another. Perfect processing, texture and all the usability I could hope for with all the rigs around here.
Strong Indica effect. Great long lasting high, but not fair because I’m back for more often due to that taste and intimidate head effect after exhale.
