OG Kush

Origin of his name:

The meaning of "OG" is the subject of much speculation. The initials are often thought to mean "Original Gangster" and would be a direct reference to the Southern California hip-hop scene of the 1990s. Another possible interpretation, "OG" would be a tribute to the website, known as, Cannabis site very famous and shut down by the authorities at the time. Even famous cannabis grower, Kush Dawg, said OG means "Ocean Grown" because the plant was mostly grown indoors on the east coast of the United States bordering the ocean.

These theories will surprise some connoisseurs, however, they are part of the myth.

Since the relaxation of the laws concerning cannabis, with his friends producers Josh Del Rosso, who made the fame of the og, have also given their version, the strain would be called "OG" because in southern California "og" is the term for someone or something recognized to be original, reliable, "old school" and therefore refers to the genetics that make it up.


Its leaves are yellowish green. It has dense and compact buds, medium to large in size, covered with silvery white trichomes with slightly orange pistils that stand out against its colorful flower of a bright and intense green. Its tops are resinous and very sticky to the touch, but when the bud is very dry, it looks like "a kibble" because its appearance is so tight. The dominant terpenes of this strain are myrcene, limonene and caryophyllene.
