The biggest issue, if you can call it that, is her amazingly vigorous growth that could be inconvenient for those lacking space or those wishing to grow without raising any attention. In fact, she could easily reach heights of 3 metres outdoors, so beware. In order to control her growth when cultivating indoors, we recommend limiting her vegetative stage to a maximum of three weeks.
Perfect for: Growers seeking top-quality cannabis rarities.
Another major feature of Amnesia Kush is her complex mix of tastes and scents. She preserves some of the wild citrusy and Kushy aromas of OG Kush but adds a deep Haze touch to them.
Total amount of cannabinoids*: 18.56%
If two of the greatest marijuana meccas, California and Holland, decided to merge, the result would be this outstanding Amnesia Kush cannabis seed. And it’s true that this strain, born from the cross of an Amnesia Haze and an OG Kush, brings together the best each of these cannabis traditions could offer: the taste, strength, and vigour of an OG Kush with the Sativa potency, the Haze personality and the yield of the Amnesia lineage. At Dinafem Seeds, we knew that, with such amazing genetics, there was no way we could fail, and we were right. Amnesia Kush is a cannabis jewel that brings a brand-new nuance to the Amnesia family, but not only that. She’s also a living proof that the combination of premium genetics always gives way to unparalleled beauties.

Amnesia Kush is a heavy-yielding plant that produces generous crops of thick, dense buds. She’s a great choice if you’re a commercial grower.
*Cannabis contains over 100 terpenes. These compounds create the aroma unique to each strain and can interact with cannabinoids. This report refers only to the 15 most abundant terpenes in this strain.
Royal Queen Seeds breeders worked hard to develop our own version of the legendary OG Kush. Using a mix of Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush, they created a well-rounded strain with high THC levels and bucket-loads of fruity terpenes. Overall, she features a stoning genetic profile of 75% indica genetics and 25% sativa.
Growers can easily achieve higher yields by employing basic training techniques. Topping early in the vegetative stage will force plants to produce multiple main stems and more flowering sites. Both main-lining and low-stress training will help keep her bushy and dense canopy under control and adequately aerated.
Is OG Kush the most popular RQS strain?
Its true genetics are unknown. Some say OG Kush is a mix of ChemDawg with a Lemon Thai and Pakistani Kush. Others say that it’s just a special cutting of ChemDawg from the early 90s. Even the meaning of the name OG has been debated; with some saying it means Original Gangster. However, now, because of its origins, most people agree it means Ocean Grown.
One thing that is not debated is the popularity of this feminized cannabis strain. From Hollywood movie stars and rappers to medical marijuana users, OG Kush is loved by many. The most obvious trait of OG Kush is its strong, unique, very dank, slightly citrus aroma, almost like fuel or strong detergent. The flavour of OG Kush is equally as strong and dank, with a long-lasting aftertaste.
THC levels of 19% drive a high that soothes the body and mind in equal measure. Delicious scents and tastes of citrus, pine, and fruit augment the high and will leave you craving another hit. and another. High concentrations of the terpenes myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene underpin her recognisable aroma.
Take a hit or two, and you will immediately feel waves of soothing relaxation along with a happy and blissful feeling. Both the serene and euphoric effects of the OG Kush high make it a good smoke to unwind with at the end of a long day. Top for watching movies or for hanging with friends. Novice smokers are advised to be careful with the strain, and shouldn’t get fooled by what may seem like only medium levels of THC.
Almost everyone who enjoys good cannabis has likely already smoked (or at least heard of) OG Kush. Yet, surprisingly, little is known about the exact origins of this strain. Depending on who you talk to, you may hear different stories about where the strain came from, so it isn’t easy to say with confidence how exactly the original OG Kush sprang up.
OG Kush requires only 7–9 weeks to flower, putting her on the speedier end of the spectrum, even for an indica-dominant hybrid. After this short time, she develops a nice amount of bud in the region of 475–600g/m².
Relaxing and Uplifting Effect
The potency of OG Kush is one of her hallmark qualities. Measuring in with a good 19%+ THC content, depending on the phenotype, this is definitely a strong cannabis strain that will satisfy even seasoned smokers. What’s noteworthy is that her effects are both physical and mental, combining a relaxing stone with a cerebral, sativa-like buzz.
The meaning of the “OG” part of the strain is also debated. Some say it refers to a rap song by Cypress Hill, or “O.G. Original Gangster” by Ice T. According to those in the know, however, OG simply means “ocean grown”.
Let’s take a closer look at this famous Northern California indica, which many consider to be the most iconic cannabis strain of all time. Where does OG Kush come from, and what makes the strain so special? How do you grow OG Kush, and what results can you expect at harvest time?
The story goes that a cannabis grower from LA named Putz got hold of a Chemdawg cutting from a friend, which he crossed with a Lemon Thai x Pakistani Kush (Hindu Kush) hybrid from Amsterdam. Upon tasting the new creation, someone told him that his bud tasted like it was grown up in the mountains. Putz shook his head and responded, “Well, this Kush is ocean grown!”.
