OG Kush Strain Review

OG Kush Strain Thrive Cannabis

Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable high or an elixir for your medical issues, OG Kush is the answer. The basis for many other favorite strains, this western strain can offer THC levels as high as 24 percent. There are good reasons why OG Kush weed is a favorite strain in Colorado and on the West Coast.

What Does OG Kush Look Like?

The OG Kush strain is easy to spot with large-ish, indica-like buds, yellowish-green leaves, orange hairs, and a heavy coating of trichomes that looks like sprinkled sugar. It’s a pungent strain: The bud smells strongly of pine and sour lemon and, when smoked, has a strong woody taste with sour lemon undertones.

Where Did it Come From?

The origins of this OG strain are somewhat of a mystery. We know that the strain emerged in California in the early to mid-1990s, but we’re less sure of the parentage. Most likely the OG Kush strain comes from a cross between the Chemdawg and the Hindu Kush strains. OG may stand for the strain Original Gangster, denoting its fame as a building block for many other strains, or it may mean, “ocean grown”, a reference to the strain’s West Coast origins.

Because OG Kush is rather difficult to grow, less-than-ideal conditions can lead to a low yield. This makes it a risky investment for many growers and can cause this popular strain to be difficult to find.

What to Expect

Whether you are taking OG Kush for medical or recreational purposes, be prepared for a high like none other. This hybrid is known for producing a hard-hitting high that offers the best of both indica and sativa. The mental euphoria and relaxation make it ideal for treating stress, depression, and even anxiety since it lacks the “mind-race” of many other sativas. At the same time, the intense physical relaxation and “couch lock” are excellent for treating chronic pain, insomnia, and nausea.

Sweeten up your day with Sunset Sherbet, the love child of Girl Scout Cookies and Pink Panties. This strain is known by a few names depending on its location… A few examples include Strawberry Banana Sherbert/Sherbet and Sour Banana Sherbert/Sherbet. The dessert-like flavors and the quick buzz make this a perfect party weed to share with your friends. Whether you’re looking for a memorable high or a solution for pain, stress or depression, this indica-dominant hybrid is sure to put a smile on your face.

What Does Sunset Sherbet Look Like?

The Sunset Sherbet strain is a pungent indica hybrid with large-ish buds. Look for bright green leaves, orange hairs, and silvery powdered-sugar trichomes, sometimes with hints of purple in the buds. Even more noteworthy is its sweet, citrusy smell, a mix of berries, and orange with pungent, earthy undertones. When smoked, this strain remains sweet, but with a complex taste that offers delicious undertones, even during exhale. This unusually sweet smell and flavor are what gave this strain the name of Sunset Sherbet.

Where Did it Come From?

The most famous parent of Sunset Sherbet weed is Girl Scout Cookies, another strain known for its sweet smell and taste. GSC was bred to Pink Panties to get the fruitier flavors of the Sunset strain. Other big-name members of Sunset’s lineage include OG Kush and Blackberry Kush. Sunset Sherbet has also been bred back to Girl Scout Cookies to get another sweet, dessert-like strain, aptly named Gelato.

What to Expect

Its Kush heritage makes Sunset Sherbet feel as good as it tastes. Expect an immediate cerebral high that will feed your creative urges followed by a deeply relaxing experience, both physically and mentally. The perfectly balanced combination works better than you might think and is sure to leave recreational users coming back for more. This strain is a perfect party “refreshment” too! Medical marijuana users, on the other hand, will find that the uplifted cerebral high works well to help cope with everything from depression to bad moods, and the deeply relaxing effects deal well with both stress and pain.
