The history of OG Kush


There are many theories about what the OG stands for. Some claim it means “Original Gangster“, since it was pretty popular in the early nineties, when the hip hop scene in California was blooming. Some claim it means “Original“, some think it means “Ocean Grown“, since it was supposedly first grown in the California, near the Pacific Ocean.


The even bigger mystery is it real origin and the story behind its creation. One theory says, it was created and first grown near the ocean in California, by a group of growers in the prohibition era in 1990s from Afghani genetics. They chose these genetics, because they needed a plant, that was small in size, grew fast and produced good quality buds.


Grower Matt ”Bubba” Berger supposedly created a strain named Krippy, that was later on called Kush, after his friends called the buds Kush Berries, because of the colour and overall look. When this strain landed in LA, a grower named Josh D supposedly created the first version of OG Kush. This strain quickly spread around and became No. 1 in the US.
