OG Kush Strain Overview

OG Kush is a popular cultivar that is definitely worth singing about. Originally cultivated in Florida during the early ’90s, OG Kush is thought to be a cross of a strain from Northern California and a Chemdawg x Lemon Thai x Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. Often reported to be physically and mentally calming, OG Kush has a tangy skunk flavor and a sour citrus aroma. 

Medical cannabis patients often choose “OG” as a sleep aid, but its uses extend far beyond pillow talk. Ideal for socializing, OG Kush tends to make users feel euphoric and talkative. With THC levels resting at around 18%-23%, this myrcene-, limonene-, and caryophyllene-rich strain lives up to its name as the “Original Gangster” of the weed world. Expect an appetite boost after a few puffs of OG. Thanks to its analgesic cannabinoid and terpenoid composition, some users also recommended it for pain relief.

OG Kush Strain Effects & Common Usage

THC may induce feelings of euphoria and relaxation and increase sociability. 

Sleepy. As a strain that may cause sleepiness, OG Kush is a popular bedtime strain among insomniacs. 

Hungry. THC has a reputation for increasing hunger pangs, with research showing that it boosts the production of “the hunger hormone” – ghrelin

Calm. A state of cerebral calm awaits OG Kush consumers, thanks to anti-anxiety compounds like limonene.

Pain and Inflammation relief. Studies show that THC, limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene are potential pain relievers.

Appetite loss and cachexia. Patients suffering from appetite loss and cachexia (wasting syndrome) may expect a surge in hunger pangs thanks to the THC contained in OG strains.

OG Kush Strain Dosage Recommendations

Containing between 18% and 23% THC, with some strains of OG Kush soaring to 26%, this therapeutic cultivar is recommended for experienced consumers. Euphoria is usually guaranteed, according to many, and it’s a good idea to keep some eye drops handy, not to mention a bottle of water. 

The right dosage can vary greatly from one user to the next. If you have questions about finding the right dosage or product type for your needs, consider consulting with a medical cannabis doctor, or you can request a consultation with NuggMD’s Cannabis Concierge.
