OG Kush is the stuff of legend. Hailing from Southern California this indica-dominant cannabis variety has not one but two myths associated with its name. Ocean Grown Kush or Original Gangster Kush, take your pick. The latter was probably adopted after this weed became a big hit with some of the biggest names in rap music.
OG Kush is a 70% indica hybrid marijuana with a great taste and a fantastic effect. It was produced by crossing a Lemon Thai/Pakistani and Chemdawg. It grows indoors and also does well outdoors in warm and temperate climates. Indoor yields are between 350- - 525 gr/m2 in a relatively short flowering period of 55 - 60 days. When grown outdoors the yield will be between one and two kilos per plant with each one reaching two to three meters in height. It is quite a straightforward strain to cultivate even though it is somewhat sensitive to moisture so if growing in a soil mix or coco coir it is recommended not to supply too much water at any one time.
During growth the aroma is of ripe tropical fruits. Once harvested and dried this becomes more complex with lemon, diesel fuel and noble woods apparent. The taste also features these qualities with the addition of tropical fruits and spice and it has been likened to lemon cleaner although we prefer not to make a direct comparison ourselves. THC production is high at 20% with very low CBD at 0.1%. The effect of OG Kush is powerful and very long-lasting providing smokers and vapers with a very deeply relaxing mind and body high.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
