Can’t tell the difference between Blue Dream and Purple Urkle? Wondering what exactly’s in the Girl Scout Cookies you just smoked? We've created detailed profiles for each of the most popular, sought-after weed strains, in order to help cannabis users everywhere understand the different plants they’re smoking, eating, or otherwise consuming. Up next: OG Kush.
Unknown; possibly contains Pakistani, Hindu Kush, and Lemon Thai genetics
Place of origin
We don’t really want to step into this minefield, because OG Kush’s origin story is one of the most disputed in all of cannabis. However, good sources place its origins in Florida in the early 1990s, then moving to California in 1996, where it quickly ended up in the hands of the "Soul Assassins" crew, associates of noted stoner rap group Cypress Hill. The rest, as they say, is history -- the original plant has been used for breeding countless times and there are hundreds of random OG plants floating around, especially in California.
