The OG Kush remains one of the most significant strains in North America as it symbolizes the epitome of California cannabis. OG Kush is a cross between the Hindu Kush and Chemdawg. The Hindu Kush is a heavy Indica while Chemdawg is a brain teaser hybrid. Both strains made the OG Kush a perfect blend for any cannabis taker.
