Now that I live in a state with a legal cannabis market, I see a lot of hybrid strains that are pulled from OG Kush
When I first started getting marijuana in school, I wasn’t fortunate enough to smoke unique cannabis strains. Everything was either the basic brick weed which was referred to as “skunk weed,” or you could get sensimilla weed that was correctly grown locally in a person’s house. Sensimilla back then was called “crip,” “chronic,” and “hydro” among other titles. By the time I reached college, I started to find strain-unique batches of cannabis flower buds. I’ll never forget the excitement that I had when our neighbor told me that he found White Widow. That evening the two of us smoked a joint and walked onto the other side of campus to see live music at the student-run eating establishment. Months later were given with a strong batch of Sour Diesel that made an impression on me about the possible impact of quality cannabis compared to the junk I had in high school. Now that I live in a state with a legal cannabis market, I see a lot of hybrid strains that are pulled from OG Kush. The famed hybrid strain Girl Scout Cookies was made from crossing OG Kush with Durban Poison, while Bubba Kush a pair between Hindu Kush and OG Kush. It’s tough to find a great batch of OG Kush in our state because a lot of growers will pass off a lower end cultivar as OG Kush when it doesn’t reflect the taste profile and effects of the OG Kush I got when I lived in CA for a few years in the early 2010s. You know you’ve got real OG Kush when you open the bucket and aroma the rich, dank aroma of the flower buds.
