What does OG MEAN?

OG is the abbreviation for organic. During the 1990s people started demanding organic foods vs the GMO counter part. OG to the west coast beach vibe means ocean grown. Stories of ocean grown VS mountain grown are passed around, true or not its true for the west coastal people. OG was coined by rappers at the same time to mean Original Gangster. The closest source we found to the OG says the name came from an OG in Humboldt California. He was the “Old grower” of the kush. His kush plant was called OG Kush because he was an old grower of that kush.

The original OG kush comes from Humboldt California. It is said to be the worlds best Lifted sativa crossed with the worlds best downer Indica kush. Being a hybrid we would expect OG to mean something for the sativa side that was breed in. Our best guess is some kind of skunk high in nerolidol and linalool crossed with an india Kush from the kush mountains. The offspring of og kush can exhibit purple stems like Thai cannabis.

A deeper look at Cannabis and Anxiety: Looking for compounds that work

Introduction to cannabis: A psychiatric, all natural herbal medicine used for over 2,000 years

dna reserve privadaCannabis is a rare species in the plant kingdom in that it has potential for fast breeding projects and does great in the wild. The cannabis plant has been cultivated for over a long period of time by mankind in many different regions in which it grows wild. These cannabis plants grown in wild regions of the world are known as landrace cannabis plants. The test results of non-equatorial landrace cannabis differs in compounds to those in tropical zones next to the equator. Each landrace cannabis plant contains its own unique healing profile. Some African wild cannabis plants have a modified version of THC called THC-V adding to a more potent euphoric high. It is possible that cannabis over time bred next to other plants may start to mimic the same plant compounds to help it succeed in its environment making cannabis a pharmaceutical miracle and moldable medicine. Getting the right cannabis cultivar is the most important factor in using cannabis as a psychiatric medicine.

Anxiety: How it feels to smoke cannabis while you have anxiety or an anxiety attack

axniety When people feel anxiety its a yucky feeling inside the blood stream. When you are anxious you are not yourself and your body is collapsing from the over stimulated environment you put yourself in. When you finally worry so much you have an anxiety attack you feel the real physical damage that takes over your body from your sick nervous system. Cannabis high in plant compounds that smell like lemons are a dangerous mix for those suffering from a panic attack and can cause a panic attack if you smoke them. These tend to be equatorial cannabis plants but are not limited to them only. Anxiety does not stem from the use of cannabis but many specific cannabis cultivars can amplify the effects of anxiety that was already there. For this reason many have tried cannabis and did not like the feeling or it made their condition worse. Poorly breed cultivars or random crossed hybrids will yield wild results making each new amateur cultivar a watered down low grade herb that may not have safe compounds for daily consumption for those suffering from psychiatric illnesses.

Anxiety and cannabis: Getting the right variety for anxiety

Anxiety and depression go hand in hand so you have to ask yourself if you are are also depressed. Many people who are depressed also suffer from anxiety. Afghanistan varieties high in the terpene a-pinene and of quality may be a perfect candidate for people suffering from bad anxiety or ADHD. The soul assassin OG kush has plenty of pinene and in studies is shown to reduce anxiety from this compound alone. A popular cannabis variety for anxiety in the united states is called blue dream. Blue dream was breed from professionals and the genetics are partly from India where cannabis has been cultivated for different medicines in ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. If you are depressed other strains like OG kush and GSC will help with your happiness but have some drowsy side effects at times. Its important to not get these drowsy type of cannabis cultivars if you only have anxiety and not depression as well.

Anxiety and Cannabis: Calming the nervous system naturally

Many cannabis varieties affect you with a wide array of feelings. Equatorial cannabis like jack herer may produce an upbeat, tight muscle, heart racing type of buzz that is bad for anxiety and depression but fine for those who need some energy while they smoke. Many cannabis plants on the markets today cause your mind to race and your nervous system to be jolted. Those suffering from anxiety or depression should focus on cannabis that calms the mind, muscles, and nervous system. Many plants that calm the nerves have the same plant compounds found in kush cannabis varieties from India’s kush mountain range. Terpenes heavily influence other compounds like THC, CBD, and CBN. Many online sources have claimed CBD as a medicine for anxiety but we here at OGKHUSH.com believe that CBD is great for other things but not lasting anxiety or depression. Terpenes like trans nerolidol have the ability to make plant medicine more efficient and healthier to consume while amping up other desired effects.

Terpenes: Plant compounds to relax the nervous system from anxiety and attacks.

We need certain plant compounds to relax the muscles in the body and the nerves. Many plant compounds are complicated and work off many other compounds. The best strains for anxiety and depression are going to be versions of the OG kush and a plant called blue dream. Pakistan kush and Afghanistan kush both have the ability to crush anxiety and depression given they have the right terpene content. Here is a list of terpenes found in certain cannabis varieties and the effects on the human body according to scientific studies on these terpenes. *OG kush contains many if not all of these terpenes listed below.

  • Nerolidol: Boost potency and longevity of important terpenes listed below and many others.
  • Myrcene: Sedative, relaxant.
  • Linalool: Sedative, Dizziness. *Increases other terpenes effects.
  • Limonene: Appetite suppressant.
  • alpha Bisabolol: Anti-inflammatory, Anti-irritant, Anti-microbial, Analgesic.
  • alpha Pinene: Anti-anxiety, anti-Depressant, for staying focused and in a good mood.

  • alpha terpineol: Anti-anxiety, sedative, calms nervous system, anxiolytic, antidepressant. 
  • alpha-Humulene: Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory,  appetite suppressant.
  • Farnesene: Anti-inflammatory, spasms.
  • Borneol: hemorrhoid relief, arthritis, antibacterial.
  • Eucalyptol: colds, cramps, asthma, heals wounds and minor sprains.
Cannabis breakthrough vs Modern medicine anti-psychotics

The biggest break through in future medicine will be from the results of the patients using cannabis kush for anxiety. Modern drugs to treat anxiety and depression as well as a whole host of psychotic issues are dangerous to the mind, organs, and body. The lack of empathy seems to be causing an issue in modern day medicine and there is nobody doing anything about it. The pharmaceutical giants have become corrupt pushing poisonous drugs on the youth and sensationalizing the morality of prescription drug use. Below is a video warning you of the dangers of anti-psychotic medications.

Plants from the kush mountain region have the power to relieve anxiety and depression while making the patient feel empathy towards others. This great sense of empathy suggest that all natural medication like cannabis are a great alternative and deserve intense unbiased professional study for the subject. Not all cannabis causes empathy and in fact its rare due to the legal status of cannabis. Some cannabis can make you less empathic so getting the right cultivar is key and we recommend you check out OG kush with a terpene profile similar to this:

How to Identify a Kush Cannabis Plant

The Kush genetics are strong: How to Identify the Kush Cannabis linage

Often many find themselves conflicted over indica and sativa and that’s because it is misrepresented. Many have had that anxiety producing, heart racing effect from cannabis that shies them away from trying other varieties that are dubbed “Sativa” vs the “Indica” cannabis plant. The problem here is that many uplifting cannabis varieties are also “Indica” in the sense that they came from India. So lets put all this Indica VS Sativa wordage aside and dive deep into how to identify a kush cannabis plant. Here we will discuss the two types of kush, Pakistani kush(Sour Diesel) and Afghani kush(OGkush). We also touch on the Afghani Hashplant.

An offset(Picture Below) at the base of the leaf can be found on both Afghani kush and Pakistani purple or Pakistani diesel. It is normally 3 fingers of the leaf offset by 2 below it. Look careful and you can see it. The OG kush and this Pakistan variety share other traits like rounded small fingers at the base of the leaf giving hint that it wants a humid environment to thrive. Another example besides an even number of leaf fingers is that both Afghani kush and Pakistan kush can get really dark leaf. One example that may set the Afghani OG kush apart from the Pakistani kush is the purple/red color on the leaf stems as shown above.

Pictured below we see a GG#4 cannabis cultivar with a 4 leaf pattern. The purple leaf stem in the back on fully developed leaf are a sign this GG is from the Afghanistan kush linage rather the Pakistan. Ferns share similar purple stems and are a sign they want to grow in the shaded forest. The Afghani kush smells more piney, swampy, a creek or like undercooked pasta. The Pakistan variety is more earthy like sour diesel but also they have purple variety like grapes and berries. GG#4 can almost smell skunky at times.

The OG kush from the Hindu kush mountains is refereed to as Afghani Kush. This kush produces 2 small fingers on the leaf base that have no serration. This adapted leaf shape helps with humid areas that also get hot. Often found at high altitudes in an area that smells like pine trees, creek and a temperate forest. This type of kush produces purple stemmed thick leaf. Over watering with this variety is rarely an issue as they thrive in wet soils. Not only can this plant take high humidity levels during bloom but also extreme heat. The plants leaf fingers are generally very wide overlapping each other significantly. This type of indica likes to produce 5-7 fingers and rarely anymore unlike the hashplant(also Afghani) which produce many more wide fingers on the leaf. The dark green leaf is sometimes black during bloom and is optimal for shaded habitats.

GSCF formerly know as girl scout cookies Forum cut is a pheno that has a lot of B-Caryophyllene and smells like black pepper. This kush has thick leaf and also has some red leaf stems. The GSCF grows similar leaf patterns to OG kush and Pakistani kush varieties. The forum cut GSC comes from the original GSC which can smell like kush and urine at times. GSC cultivars are from Afghanistan kush but may have a secret ingredient too.
