Is OG Kush more Indica or Sativa?


OG Kush is one of the legendary strains, that almost every person with slight interest in Cannabis has heard of it. There are many debates, whether OG Kush weed is indica or sativa. If you have been searching for ideal OG Kush seed to buy, you might have noticed this too. Some seed banks have sativa OG Kush, some have indica. Our version is mostly indica, that is why we are going to focus on this. In this article, we are covering our OG Kush and its genotype.



About OG Kush


OG Kush is a hybrid, meaning it is not 100 % indica or sativa, it is a mixture. Many different seed banks might have different versions of OG Kush strain, but our version is mostly indica. It has Asian ancestors – Lemon Thai, Pakistani and Chem Dawg. It produces a pretty big yield, that can contain up to 24 % of THC and 0.23 % of CBD. It has citrusy flavour and diesel like aroma.

OG Kush genetics


As mentioned before, this strain originates from a few Asian strains. These are Lemon Thai, Pakistani and Chem Dawg. Lemon Thai is a sativa dominant strain, Pakistani and Chem Dawg are indica dominant strains, that also took over in this strain. Some users have reported some effects of sativa, but those are usually super subtle.



Sativa VS Indica


Because of many years of cross breeding different strains, to get the best results and top quality seeds, the original 100 % indicas or sativas are almost impossible to be found. On the market, there are mainly hybrids that are either pure hybrids, with a nice balance between indica and sativa genotype, or they lean on one or the other side. But even if they are not pure, they can carry a lot of characteristics of one or the other.


Indica dominant strains are more suitable for night time use. They provide so called “body high“, that can be felt as tiredness or sleepiness. It also stimulates appetite, improves sleep, reduces pain and other. Indica dominant plants are usually shorter, but much more dense or bushy. The leaves are wider and of dark green colour. They also have shorter flowering period.


Sativa dominant strains on the other hand are more suitable for day time use. They provide “mind high“, that leaves you energetic and inspired. Some of the effects of sativa are uplifted feeling, increased creativity and focus and it increases alertness. Sativa plants are usually less dense and tall. The leaves are of light green colour and are more narrow. They tend to have longer flowering periods, that can be a little challenging for new growers.



Is OG Kush more sativa or indica?


Our version of OG Kush is mostly indica. But do not get confused, since there are also some sativa versions available on the market.



What does this mean?


This means OG Kush strain is more suitable for night time use. You can expect to be tired, sleepy and hungry, since it stimulates appetite. OG Kush is often used to treat chronic pain, inflammation and to help with insomnia. It is also a good appetite stimulator.



Is OG Kush suitable for indoor or outdoor growing?


OG Kush can be grown indoors or outdoors. This strain performs well in both. Indoors, the flowering period will end in about 8 weeks, as it is common for indica dominant strains. It can produce from 600 and up to 800 grams per square meter. Outdoors, the flowering period ends around the middle of October and a single plant can produce up to 800 grams per plant. Keep in mind that yield quantity might vary, because those numbers can only be reached, if the OG Kush plant is grown under ideal conditions.



Final words


To conclude, our version of OG Kush is indica dominant strain. You can expect it to provide the usual effects and to look like typical indica plant. But there are also some seed banks that provide OG Kush in sativa version. At the end of the day, choose the strain that you enjoy the most and that has the effects that are the most suitable for your needs and tolerance. Let us know down below which strains do you prefer? Indica dominant, sativa dominant or something in between?
