Known for their ability to grow into plants that produce very potent nugs, OG Kush seeds are preferred for the excellent results both in terms of quality and when it comes to quantity. The OG is one of the eight purest varieties of Kush and also a hybrid consisting of 5% Sativa and in 95% Indica. The colorful appearance, the fluffiness provided by the Sativa in its genes, and the flavorful resin make the OG a long-time favorite of many.
The History Behind this Extraordinary, Potent Strain
The origins of OG Kush seeds are wrapped in mystery and there are various explanations for the OG particle in the name as well – many believe this Indica-dominant strain comes from California, where it was developed from various Kush strains, Lemon Thai and others. According to one theory about the name, OG is the acronym for “Ocean Grown”, also referring to the origins of the strain. OG has enjoyed great popularity ever since its development was complete, its potency and its exotic, piney-lemony flavor being its best features.

OG buds are of a beautiful, deep green, with large THC crystals visible on the surface. The plant exudes a strong smell in any growth phase – smell that only becomes more intense with the harvested bud.
