OG Kush is one of the most beloved marijuana varieties in the world. There are a few reasons for that, although “Reefer Man” by Cypress Hill probably does have a lot to do with it. Not only does it boast fresh, sweet aromas and flavors with hints of citrus, spice, and everything nice, but the high is also intense and euphoric, both mentally and physically, thanks to OG Kush’s high THC and low CBD percentage.

Between the taste and the effects, and the cool name, it’s no wonder why rappers love OG Kush, along with the rest of the cannabis community. But you can’t just throw the word Kush in with another word to make a great strain. The proof is in the bud, which often comes at a high cost due to high demand and (of course) its ability to get you stoned like no other. To lead you to the best cannabis featuring the most famous modern genetics of them all, here are the top 10 strains with OG Kush in their genetic lineage.

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.

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.
