Og kush strain is a world-famous strain first propagated by Matt Berger in Florida. The strain was later popularized after JoshD was able to perfect the growing conditions and introduce the variety into the Los Angeles market. JoshD Farms reports OG Kush strain users can expect long-lasting, heavy, yet versatile euphoria and skunky-citrus flavor and aroma. The company is now focused exclusively on developing OG Kush-derived strains and products.
JoshD Farms reports an average THC content of 20% from OG Kush Strain with some indoor grows testing as high as 26%. Myrcene, Limonene, and caryophyllene are the dominant terpenes of the strain. According to JoshD Farms, phenotypes and offspring that honor OG Kush’s signature effect and flavor profile include Kosher Kush, Triangle Kush, Skywalker OG, and Loompa’s Headband.
Matt Berger said he obtained the originating strain, a ’90s favorite of Snoop Dogg and B-Real of Cypress Hill, in Florida where it was shared exclusively among local growers under the name Kryptonite, or Krippy, to designate its alleged Seattle origins. It was shipped from Seattle to Florida in dense bricks and also referred to as Supernaut and Kush.
Del Rosso said the strain was passed between Florida breeders Alec Anderson and Matt “Bubba” Berger in 1992. Berger, who was the first to cultivate Kush seeds in Florida from a random bag of flower, later shared the strain with Del Rosso in Los Angeles. Berger was also reportedly the first to coin the name Kush after a friend called the strain’s especially frosty colas “Kushberries,” with no intentional reference to the Hindu Kush mountains where other “Kush” strains originate.
Effect of OG Kush Strain
OG Kush Strains is a hybrid, which means you get the best of both worlds! And now if that’s not tempting enough, let me explain.
The high from OG Kush starts in your head rather than physical. You will experience a sudden headrush kinda thing which will lead you to be more invested in the surrounding colours and sounds. This mood blends into euphoria and you will find yourself happily doing a task that you have been avoiding or procrastinating about.
The euphoric high can be used to indulge in work, or do activities like working out, playing games, and even sex. The head-high is a blended one, so you will not feel as you do from a pure Sativa strain, but the effect will be slightly there. This makes it great for parties, social interaction, and lively conversations.
Once the mind high starts wearing out, you will be welcomed into the relaxing state, which does not make you sad or tired, but just give you enough reason to happily lie down and space out. It’s the best time to munch your favourite snack and watch Rick and Morty. This makes it a great evening/day – time strain.
Depending on how it is grown, you might experience the Indica-effect more or the Sativa-effect. And if you get your hands on the originally grown OG Kush Strains then you’re in for a ride.
OG Kush Strain’s popularity also stems from the fact that it carries a bunch of medicinal properties that make it a popular strain among those who see cannabis as medicine.
With its high potency and THC levels, OK Kush Strains is acclaimed to help treat a large number of ailments. With its relaxing properties, it brings relief to chronic and muscular pains. Some patients have also found it helpful in relieving migraines, headache, and nausea. Remember that since it has a high THC level, consuming this in high quantities may actually induce nausea.
The same relaxing and peaceful moments gained by smoking this strain is also helpful to battle anxiety and depression. Insomnia and restlessness are also said to be curbed by this beautiful strain since it is a powerful pain-reliever and induces relaxation.
The other side of this strain makes the individual focused and energized which can be used by those suffering from attention deficit and bipolar disorders.
Now that we know all the medicinal benefits and the tempting effects of OG Kush strain, let’s have a look at the side-effects.
It doesn’t have any severe side-effects, only those which come with cannabis usage. The first thing that you would experience while consuming the strain is a dry mouth. For this, keep a bottle of water handy and hydrate yourself to beat this one.
Another side-effect which comes with using cannabis is dry eyes. If you’re looking to fight this, look for eye-drops that soothe the redness. You can get one from your local dispensary.
High dosage may lead to paranoia, dizziness and headache.
Make sure you look out for these side effects before indulging in a heavy stoning session. Better to be prepared than not.
