Top 10 OG Kush strains

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.

If you want a high you can feel almost instantly, along with lots of resin and pungent flavors and aromas, then check out our Top 10 OG Kush!

Who? Is hotly debated with too many tall tales to know for sure which individuals are owed the credit for bringing ancient Kush genetics to the West. However, we can be certain that it happened just in time. In 1979 the former Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan and so began a terrible trend. Ever since War and conflict have plagued the whole Middle-East.

Civilian Kush seed hunting expeditions have all but ceased. Fortunately, breeders from the US and Europe have been cultivating, hybridising and refining vintage Kush genetics for close to 50 years now.
