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’.
types, so that the high is at first euphoric followed by a body stone that’s relaxing rather than sedating.
The origins of the first OG strain are also somewhat vague, but the original was probably OG Kush from California. According to cannabis lore, OG Kush was created by combining the Chemdawg strain with a Hindu Kush, both Indica strains. Persistent rumours claim that there’s some Sativa dominant Lemon Thai in the mix as well. What we can say with certainty is that OG is a well-mixed hybrid of Indica and Sativa genetics.
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.
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.
Its true genetics are unknown. Some say OG Kush is a mix of ChemDawg with a Lemon Thai and Pakistani Kush. Others say that it’s just a special cutting of ChemDawg from the early 90s. Even the meaning of the name OG has been debated; with some saying it means Original Gangster. However, now, because of its origins, most people agree it means Ocean Grown.
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.
Is OG Kush the most popular RQS strain?
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.
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.
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.

Indoors this strain flowers in 9 weeks producing rock-hard buds that simply glisten with THC resin crystals. It grows quite tall and is responsive to training and SCRoG. The effect is happiness-inducing, relaxing and uplifting. Altogether an improvement on the already impressive original OG Kush!
OG Kush #18 cup-winning strain is the result of pollinating DNA’s OG Kush with pollen from a reversed (S1) OG Kush. This has the effect of doubling-down on the sour quality and improved yields by at the very least one third as much again!
Starting life in California, DNA Genetics’ founders enjoyed the very best selections of local strains when they started growing in the late 80’s.
