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
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.
An intriguing mystery surrounds the question of what the letters OG actually stand for.

OG Kush #18 cup-winning strain is the result of pollinating DNA’s OG Kush with pollen from a reversed (S1) OG Kush. This has the effect of doubling-down on the sour quality and improved yields by at the very least one third as much again!
Indoors this strain flowers in 9 weeks producing rock-hard buds that simply glisten with THC resin crystals. It grows quite tall and is responsive to training and SCRoG. The effect is happiness-inducing, relaxing and uplifting. Altogether an improvement on the already impressive original OG Kush!
