The origins of the OG in OG Kush name.
We already wrote about the legendary OG Kush and not it’s time to add a nice legend to this immensely popular Californian cannabis strain. The big question always was: what do the O and G stand for? There are three general versions.
First one means – Ocean Grown, because according to the urban myth, when the creator of the OG Kush was offered a bowl with his Kush, he was told that the strain was mountain grown. He smelled the familiar notes and said that this one is not mountain grown it was Ocean Grown. So eventually it was shortened to OG Kush. Second is about OverGrown.com, a cult cannabis website that was closed by the Canadian police in 2006 and accused of selling marijuana seeds. Rumor says, that the strain was named after the website. And finally the least likely, but the best sounding: since OG Kush is so Californian, OG stands for Original Gangster. This might have some credit, because the strain first appeared in the gang-filled 90th but most of the cannabis enthusiasts reject this version.
