This leads to a powerfully relaxing high which banishes pain, stress, and symptoms of depression. The rich pine-wood aroma here is spicy with the faintest hint of citrus. This smell will be quite strong when the plant finishes flowering after 7–9 weeks. At that point, you will see OG Kush in all its rich, green glory.

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!
