Ever since the original appearance of OG Kush, many different phenotypes of this strain have surfaced with desirable traits. The cut that was being passed around the San Fernando Valley that would be referred to as SFV OG comes from Swerve of The Cali Connection. As that original cut was clone-only, Swerve would continue to cultivate the strain eventually mixing it with Afghan #1. Afghan #1 is a cross of two landrace Indica strains from Afghanistan. Selecting a good male and female, Swerve proceeded to back-cross his way way to a stable F4 line that he calls SFV OG Kush.
Taking third place in the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup’s Indica category, this strain tends to smell and taste like fruit and skunk. As it can be a harsh smoke, many patients recommend vaporizing SFV OG Kush. This pure Indica strain starts in the head, relieving worries, and slowly washes over the rest of the body, numbing out pain.
For most the strain does not start out overtly heavy but as it tapers off, after two to three hours, it may cause users to become weighed down and tired. Some users also get the munchies from this strain.
SFV OG Kush is a heavily indica dominant hybrid (90% indica/10% sativa) strain created through a cross of the classic SFV OG X Afghani strains.
This celebrity child is often confused with its SFV OG parent due to the similarity in names, although it is a very different experience. SFV OG Kush is best known for its classic aroma and effects that pull from the OG Kush family. This bud has an enticing aroma of sweet skunky citrus with a hint of earthy pine as the nugs are broken apart and burned.
The taste is of sweet lemony pine with a hint of pungent earth that intensifies upon exhale. The SFV OG Kush high is much like its parent strains, with heavy indica effects that are calming in nature.
It starts with a slightly uplifted and euphoric onset that leaves you feeling happy with your head in the clouds and the tendency towards becoming spacey at times. A body buzz will start in your lower spine and slowly spread throughout the rest of your body in warming waves, leaving you completely relaxed and slightly sedated. Upon the comedown, you’ll be eased into a deep and peaceful sleep that lasts for hours on end.
These effects and its powerful 19-25% average THC level make SFV OG Kush the perfect bud for treating chronic pain, insomnia, chronic stress or anxiety, mild to moderate cases of depression, and inflammation. This bud has small lumpy popcorn-shaped dark forest green nugs with sparse orange hairs and a super sticky coating of sweet syrupy resin.
