Happily, OG’s mixed parentage gives it the best qualities of both Sativa and Indica
OG types are quite easy to grow indoors and you can expect decent yields of up to 500 grams per square metre, depending on the particular hybrid you choose. Most OG types will also grow successfully outdoors, even in cooler regions thanks to the hardiness they get from their Hindu Kush genetics.
types, so that the high is at first euphoric followed by a body stone that’s relaxing rather than sedating.
Some of the best known OG types include the classic OG Kush, renowned for its fresh pine-forest smell, Tahoe OG, prized for its soaring body high, and Headband OG, yet another superb strain from our clever Californian growers.
An intriguing mystery surrounds the question of what the letters OG actually stand for. It’s a mystery that may never be conclusively answered but the competing theories include ‘ocean grown’ and ‘organically grown’, both claims from California, and the more entertaining but perhaps less plausible theory from New York, ‘original gangsta’.
One thing that is not debated is the popularity of this feminized cannabis strain. From Hollywood movie stars and rappers to medical marijuana users, OG Kush is loved by many. The most obvious trait of OG Kush is its strong, unique, very dank, slightly citrus aroma, almost like fuel or strong detergent. The flavour of OG Kush is equally as strong and dank, with a long-lasting aftertaste.
THC levels of 19% drive a high that soothes the body and mind in equal measure. Delicious scents and tastes of citrus, pine, and fruit augment the high and will leave you craving another hit. and another. High concentrations of the terpenes myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene underpin her recognisable aroma.
Is OG Kush the most popular RQS strain?
OG Kush is an extremely strong cannabis strain, with most experienced smokers listing it as one of their favourites. The effect is as strong physically as it is mentally. Though its effect is like an Sativa, the strain’s genetics are mostly Indica. The effect is as strong and complex as the flavour. OG Kush takes around 8 weeks to flower and on average the yield is 500 grams per plant.
Growers can easily achieve higher yields by employing basic training techniques. Topping early in the vegetative stage will force plants to produce multiple main stems and more flowering sites. Both main-lining and low-stress training will help keep her bushy and dense canopy under control and adequately aerated.
Royal Queen Seeds breeders worked hard to develop our own version of the legendary OG Kush. Using a mix of Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush, they created a well-rounded strain with high THC levels and bucket-loads of fruity terpenes. Overall, she features a stoning genetic profile of 75% indica genetics and 25% sativa.
OG Kush is vigorous, resistant and very easy to grow. Her bushy structure makes her a great choice for growing indoors when there isn’t much space available. We strongly recommend using SOG in that case. Outdoors, OG Kush thrives in Mediterranean-like warm climates or under the protection of the greenhouse. In perfect growing conditions, she could easily reach heights of 3 m and yields of 1100 g/plant. OG Kush is also very interesting due to her short flowering cycle, lasting no more than 55 days.
Despite there being many theories regarding the meaning of the acronym OG, the most widespread explanation is that they refer to the words “Ocean Grown”, that is to say, grown next to the ocean. Be that as it may, OG Kush is an extraordinarily easy-to-grow Indica-like marijuana hybrid that turns into a mid-sized plant in a remarkably short time. Her being so bushy and branchy makes it necessary to do some pruning if we want to boost her yield. She can also be used as a mother plant from which to obtain lots of cuttings.
Perfect for: Those who love extremely potent cannabis strains with complex tastes, as well as for curious growers who wish to meet a strain that has made history.

OG Kush provides an incredibly potent buzz, with 24 % THC content and 0.23 % CBD, according to our Lab tests. Her effect is very intense, like a super euphoric physical and cerebral punch. Some describe it like an invigorating ‘high’ while others think it’s rather narcotic, but they all agree on it being as strong as it’s debilitating.
OG Kush produces a bunch of dense, thick, resinous and lime-green-coloured buds all over her numerous branches. In fact, this heavy-producer can provide up to 550 g/m 2 indoors and some 1100 g/plant outdoors.
OG Kush cannabis seeds are a must in the catalogue of any self-respecting seed bank. She’s not only one of the most requested strains in California and, therefore, in the entire world, but also the winner of the ‘Best strain of all times’ title issued by the cannabis bible High Times. In view of such amazing traits, at Dinafem Seeds we were determined to create the best OG Kush ever. The taste, potency and fame of OG Kush were too distinctive and exquisite not to put all our energy and resources into the process. That’s why our team of breeders decided to develop our OG Kush by crossing two elite genetics: the exotic Lemon Thai and the legendary Chemdawg. The result is a cannabis plant with very intense and complex organoleptic nuances that many describe as “lemon-scented floor-cleaner with BBQ ashes”, and with an extremely potent high caused by her almost 25 % THC content.
