OG Marijuana Seeds & Strains
An intriguing mystery surrounds the question of what the letters OG actually stand for. It's a mystery that may never be conclusively answered but the competing theories include 'ocean grown' and 'organically grown', both claims from California, and the more entertaining but perhaps less plausible theory from New York, 'original gangsta'.
The origins of the first OG strain are also somewhat vague, but the original was probably OG Kush from California. According to cannabis lore, OG Kush was created by combining the Chemdawg strain with a Hindu Kush, both Indica strains. Persistent rumours claim that there's some Sativa dominant Lemon Thai in the mix as well. What we can say with certainty is that OG is a well-mixed hybrid of Indica and Sativa genetics.
Happily, OG's mixed parentage gives it the best qualities of both Sativa and Indica
types, so that the high is at first euphoric followed by a body stone that's relaxing rather than sedating.
OG types are quite easy to grow indoors and you can expect decent yields of up to 500 grams per square metre, depending on the particular hybrid you choose. Most OG types will also grow successfully outdoors, even in cooler regions thanks to the hardiness they get from their Hindu Kush genetics.
Some of the best known OG types include the classic OG Kush, renowned for its fresh pine-forest smell, Tahoe OG, prized for its soaring body high, and Headband OG, yet another superb strain from our clever Californian growers.
If you need any further evidence of the quality and popularity of OG strains, look no further than the annual Cannabis Cup where various OG-based hybrids have won awards no less than a dozen times.
