Origins of OG Kush

OG Kush is a hybrid strain that was first cultivated in the early 1990s in Florida. Since then, it has become one of the most popular strains in the world. The name "OG Kush" is also something of a mystery. The name "OG" stands for "Ocean Grown," which refers to the fact that this strain was popularized in Southern California. The exact origins of OG Kush are somewhat murky; however, it is believed to be a cross between two other popular strains, Chemdawg and Hindu Kush. OG Kush is known for its strong, pungent smell and its high THC content. This strain is very popular among marijuana users, both recreational and medical.
