OG Kush CBD hemp flower
One of the most notable strains in North America, OG Kush embodies the epitome of Californian hemp. It has become one of the top hemp strains to crossbreed because of its proven quality and potency. OG Kush is a cross between Chemdawg and the Hindu Kush. Chemdawg is a straight-to-the-brain hybrid, while the Hindu Kush is a heavy Indica. These two strains would make OG Kush a perfect blend for any hemp flower user.
The high from OG Kush is more head-focused than physical. It starts with a sudden headrush that may lead users to feel more focused on their surroundings; sounds and colors may seem intensified. This alteration of the senses may soon give way to a general uplift in mood towards euphoria. The increase in focus is not as cerebral as with more pure Sativa — smokers will not suffer from a disorienting sense of rapid thought association or “mind race.”
It’s a versatile smoke that lends itself to the user’s mood and mindset. The combination of mental stimulation and mood improvement makes this a uniquely social strain, suitable for parties and lively conversations. It’s also a great way to enhance activities that involve the body and mind, like video games, exercise, and even sex.
As with many Sativa varieties, OG Kush can make users feel paranoid with higher doses. It has a CBD content range of 11% to 22% against a THC content of less than 0.3%.
History of the OG Kush CBD hemp flower
OG Kush was first cultivated in Florida in the early ’90s when a Northern California hemp strain was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. The result was a hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with fuel, skunk, and spice notes.
OG Kush arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it (along with “The Bubba”) from Florida to legendary cultivator Josh D.
Since then, OG Kush has become a worldwide staple used to create numerous famous hemp strains like GSC and Headband. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, including Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Ghost OG.
Features of the OG Kush CBD hemp flower
OG Kush has medium to large nugget-like hemp buds that have a dense, Indica-like structure. The leaves are yellowish-green, although specific phenotypes can show traces of purple.
Vibrant orange pistils, meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants, stand out against these colorful flowers. The hemp buds are covered in trichomes that lend them a silvery-white appearance and make them very sticky to the touch (when prepping buds for a joint or a pipe). However, users may want to use a grinder. When properly cured, the buds have an earthy, musty scent accented by some citrusy brightness: the overall impression is of a hoppy craft beer.
It’s woodsy, piney, and earthy all at once, immediately hitting your taste buds with a spunky, rabbit-like jab. Moreover, its flavor can surprise even the most jaded of self-proclaimed stoners, with none-too-subtle undertones of lime, lemon, and spice (as well as faint hints of citrusy splash).
Most would probably agree that the OG Kush CBD hemp flower has a fairly “traditional cannabis” look, as it features the classic yellow-green sugar leaf color with orange pistils and green, sometimes sage-shaded water leaves.
