OG Kush Delta 8
OG Kush is a classic strain, well known by hemp and cannabis fans everywhere. It has its roots in the cultivation culture of Florida in the 1990s. The strain was supposedly created when cultivators crossed a Northern California strain with Chemdawg, Hindu Kush, and Lemon Thai. The resulting strain is a balanced experience that has become the backbone for several strains popular on the west coast like Bubba Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, and Headband. Now, this legendary flower is available with a fresh take: Delta 8 THC!
Who said old legends can’t learn new tricks? OG Kush is a classic flower strain that’s celebrated across pop culture for its legendary benefits. And it’s new and improved with Delta 8 THC to help you experience a calm that’s more satisfying than ever. This is the strain for you if you’re looking to laugh at a bad old movie with friends or enjoy your favorite comics while relaxing in bed. No wonder OG Kush never gets old! It’s the best experience you ever had, every time.
The various strain types are thought to provide effects useful for imparting specific qualities. People prize Indica strains for their ability to relax the body and manage discomfort.
Sativa strains impart energizing effects that are primarily experienced in your headspace. This variety of cannabis is thought to promote focus and energy in the consumer. Sativa effects are also often associated with promoting creative energy, making these strains popular options for daytime consumption.
OG Kush can contain an equal balance of elements from both strain types. People refer to strains with a balance of both strain types as hybrids. Hybrid strains carry the energizing sensation of Sativa strains but with the physically relaxing effects from Indica varieties of hemp.
Depending on the genetics of the particular strain, hybrid strains can lean towards possessing more of the qualities associated with one type of strain type. OG Kush sometimes leans slightly more towards Sativa dominance, so you might experience those effects more prominently when you consume it.
Appearance Of Buds
Hemp is a highly useful plant for the therapeutic effects it can provide, but cannabis plants are also visually beautiful and unique. OG Kush with Delta 8 THC is no exception! OG Kush is a classic strain of cannabis, and this shows in how it looks.
Visually, OG Kush appears as a very traditional strain of hemp with its bright forest green color and dense, sticky green buds that give this strain major bag appeal. It expresses a colorful burst of orange hairs poking out from its frosty leaves; these are called stigmas, one of the marks of a high-quality strain of cannabis.
OG Kush will typically present as thickly-coated in frosty crystalline trichomes, which should come as no surprise considering it is an effective strain with high levels of beneficial cannabinoids! The buds are dense and stout, showcasing the strong genetics of this legendary hemp strain.
Aroma & Flavor
Even more important than the looks of the flower is how it smells and tastes. The aroma of OG Kush is one of the many reasons why hemp fans love it so much. Keeping true to its namesake, OG Kush maintains the scent profile associated with other Kush varieties with a zesty, woody scent and gas to please your nose. Some describe the scent as similar to walking through an old-growth forest, where one can smell the moist green underbrush and earthy notes of damp soil.
The flavor of OG Kush has some similar qualities to its aroma but with an added hit of citrusy deliciousness! In addition to citrus, you will also notice a woodsy, almost spicy flavor on the inhale. These flavors are complemented by the exhale’s pungent and dank flavor notes.
The terpene profile plays an important role in creating the strain’s flavor and aroma. Terpenes are naturally in plants of all varieties and create some of the natural scents we associate with our favorite floral scents, trees, and herbs. The terpene profile of a hemp strain not only helps to provide it with irresistible aromas, but studies show it may also have a role in the effects of the strain on the consumer. Below is a breakdown of the common terpene profile for OG Kush with Delta 8.
This terpene is in various herbs and spices: black pepper, basil, oregano, basil, and many other herbs all contain caryophyllene. Caryophyllene is primarily responsible for imparting a warming, herbal flavor to the strain, reminiscent of clove or rosemary. Caryophyllene is in many popular strains of hemp, including:
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Bubba Kush
- Sour Diesel
- Granddaddy Purp
It’s no coincidence that limonene sounds so similar to lemons because it is in lemons and other citrus fruit varieties! Limonene is the second most common terpene in nature, so whether you’ve been aware or not, it has surely had a presence in your life already! The pleasant scent of limonene has made it a common addition to natural perfumes and foods as well. Limonene can be in strains like:
- Wedding Cake
- Banana OG
- Tahoe OG
- Purple Hindu Kush
Another one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis is myrcene; it may be the most common terpene in modern strains of hemp and cannabis. In the realm of food, myrcene is commonly in hops, lemongrass, mango, and thyme, showcasing its versatility as a flavoring agent capable of expressing a range of different aromas. Because myrcene is so prolific, it is in most strains. Listed below are some strains where it can be in especially high amounts:
- Blue Dream
- Grape Ape
Linalool is commonly in aromatic plants like lavender, birch bark, jasmine, and rosewood. One of the interesting things about linalool is that it is so commonly found in plants (well over 200 different varieties) that even those who do not use cannabis may consume a whole two grams of it yearly through food!
However, linalool is less commonly in cannabis strains and is usually only in small amounts. Because of this, linalool rarely breaks into a strain’s top three primary terpenes. Listed below, however, are a few strains where you’ll find it in greater concentrations:
- Amnesia Haze
- Mazar I Sharif
- LA Confidential
- Dark Matter
This is another terpene whose name does much of the legwork for us because what else could it smell like other than pine! Pinene is, of course, commonly found in pine needles, rosemary, basil, and dill. However, as it is the most common terpene in the natural world, you are sure to find it in various other plants. Some strains commonly associated with high levels of pinene include:
- Blue Dream
- Big Smooth
- Grape Ape
- Snoop’s Dream
- Critical Mass
Humulene carries a unique flavor that is well recognizable once you are aware of it! Usually it will carry an earthy, spicy flavor, reminiscent of spiced herbs and warm wooded passes. Humulene is what creates the distinct flavor of the hops used to create beer but it’s also in a variety of other plants and herbs. Humulene is in cilantro, fir trees, and sage. Some strains that you can find humulene in include:
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Sour Diesel
- Original Glue
- Death Star
Effects Of OG Kush Delta 8 Strain
OG Kush relaxes the mind and body equally, making it an excellent choice for those who need help winding down but might not enjoy the sedating effects associated with pure Indica strains. Instead, OG Kush is a balanced strain, imparting good vibes and creative energy that you can enjoy at any time of the day! With the added benefit of Delta 8 THC, you can experience its uplifting and reinvigorating effects for yourself! If you’re looking to put yourself on cloud 9, Delta 8 THC might be your ticket to the sky.
The cannabinoid profile largely helps determine whether it provides potent or milder effects. The cannabinoid profile of OG Kush typically consists of ~18% CBD, a high amount of CBD likely to impart its effects on the consumer quickly and effectively. This particular version of OG Kush also contains the cannabinoid Delta 8 THC, giving it a euphoric, uplifting quality that creates an elevated feeling in the consumer. Delta 8 THC is not a harsh cannabinoid; it has mild, pleasant effects. Combined with CBD, this cannabinoid profile proves a highly relaxing and elevated consumer experience.
If you are new to consuming Delta 8 THC or hemp-derived products in general, you might be wondering what the best way is to consume them. Generally, when asked to recommend how much to use, we provide a simple answer: start with a very small quantity and add more only after allowing enough time to pass that you can feel the original amount. And if you do add more, be sure to do so in small amounts. Starting with small puffs lets the consumer regulate how much they are taking, reducing the likelihood of consuming too much and having an overwhelming experience.
