According to legend, the OG Kush strain came from the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan then smuggled its way to Florida in the ‘90s. Eventually, it found its home in California. Some say ‘OG’ means ‘Ocean Grown’ because it was mastered by growers in the Pacific Coast but here in LA, we call it the Original Gangster.
OG Kush is a world-famous strain first propagated by Matt Berger in Florida. The strain was later popularized after Josh Del Rosso, aka JoshD, was able to perfect the growing conditions and introduce the variety into the Los Angeles market. JoshD Farms reports OG Kush 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, 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.
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. Berger, who was the first to cultivate Kush seeds 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.
