Folks,


Just a simple question:
OG? What does OG refer to?
I have seen it for years mostly related to Indica strains. There used to be an 'overgrow-overthrow' website or something. OG this and OG that, I have searched for years in order to understand what it refers to.
A mountain range in India? The first internet weed site? A strain of Indica?

Define OG.

Thank you...

Found this on 420.

OG Kush:

"In late '93 John from Grass Valley Ca. got the Chem Dog cut. He shared it with me, Jerry(cowboy) from Dibble Creek Ca. and Harold(Putz) from Sunset Beach Ca. Putz had a male he called the secret ingredient. It was a cross of Lemon Thai and an Old World Paki Kush. Putz bred the secret ingredient to the Chem Dog. The buds that came out of this cross were going around So. L.A. county in '95. Someone told Putz that Kush must be so good because it was mountain grown. Putz laughed and told him "this Kush is Ocean Grown Kush bro". The tag stuck and it became known as OG Kush. In the spring of '96 Putz married a girl from New Zealand. Before moving there he sent cuts of his OG to me and Bob(beans) in Salinas Ca. He gave all his P1 stock and all the remaining seed he had to ****(mad dog) from Downey Ca. In late '96 **** sold some seed to some guys in the Valley. That's where the San Fernando Valley cut of OG comes from. It's like the Original only more sat in pheno type. **** sold a cut of the original to a guy in Orange county and that cut is called Larry today. It's still around Orange county. **** sent one other cut of the original OG to a breeder in Europe. As far as I know he never let anyone else have it.
Jerry bred his Chem Dog cut to a Humboldt county indica boy. This was the beginning of his cubing proccess. At BX3 he got a pheno that had all the smell, taste and kick of the Chem Dog, but in a pure indica pheno. Jerry gave this plant to Bob. It became known as the West Coast Dog.
Bob bred this plant to my Old World Kush male. He took a male from that cross and bred it to the OG cut Putz had sent him. This is what made the original Bubba Kush."

Lineage:ChemDawg x [ Lemon Thai x Old World Paki Kush]

Info on the differnt kutz of OG Kush:

Tahoe= cut brough into the community by Swerve. The grower that Swerve got it from had sourced the cut in the Lake Tahoe area in the 90's.

-Larry= The Orange County Larry cut that is availble in the medical scene came from the same Orange County crew that the H.A O.G Kush came from

-SFV= There are a million O.G cuts grown in the S.F.V, however the cut that goes by this name on these forums and in medical disp. came from forum member Swerve

-Ghost= This cut came from ORGNKID, ORGNKID had sold a O.G cut to a Overgrow forum member named "Ghost" who further distributed the cut.

-Tripple OG= This cut came from ORGNKID. This cut is A.K.A Triple X/XXX O.G Kush. Triple O.G was popularly sold to medical patients by the now defunct C.A.L.M disp. of Malibu.

MR1,


Thank you, for the massive amount of supporting information.
I recognized 'Ghost OG' in there and had wondered before what 'Ghost OG' meant. It's listed as a strain.
But what you are saying is that 'OG' doesn't mean anything and its just a colloquialism passed down from a million growers?

Thank you for all your help...

Not literally in the ocean...near the ocean... ocean grown

Meaning more "salt" in phenol.....there's a hundred diff stories on the net I could post......bottom line......call it what you like for what you like. :) There is no proof either way......just opinion. :)

Kush came from the Kush Mountains in Pakistan......:)

I remember researching this yrs ago...and finding that OG Kush actually came from Chem Dog? or something? But that's a whole other story.....lol

IMO---its the westerly side of the sierra nevada mtn range



Does this mean that OG refers to Indica dominant stuff, grown or originating on the western slope of the Nevada Mountains down to the ocean? Meaning inland California?
A very clear definition Orangesunshine...


Thank you...

Yup many different stories out there California is a planet on there own lol and so they call it ocean grown an many call it old gangster either way half if not more i believe of the OG strain actually comes from pakistan / india

http://www.hightimes.com/read/story-kush

The disputed region known as the Hindu Kush shares its boundaries with Pakistan and Afghanistan just north of Indian-controlled Jammu and Kashmir. The area has long been known for its ongoing conflicts as well as its history of cannabis and hashish production. Part of the legendary Himalayas mountain range, the fertile valleys and hillsides of the Hindu Kush have, for centuries, produced the world’s finest hash. Years of natural and human selection for the most resinous, indica-dominant plants have resulted in short, stocky bushes covered with huge, shiny trichomes.

So...
'OG' refers to Indica strains from the 'Hindu Kush' mountains of Northern Pakistan and Afghanistan. Where in inland California, 'it originally' became popular amongst growers?


Thank you...

I think you will find a significant difference in the "mountain" Kush of Afghanistan/Pakistan and the "Ocean Grown" Kush of southern Cali. The reason being that the original is landrace genetics, while the OG is blended and then bred for many years in Cali in order to become its own animal.

Technically, I could take the same OG from Cali and grow it in the North Carolina mountains for 10-20years and it would become its own landrace from being bred and grown in NC soil. It would be anywhere from somewhat different to very different from the original. In the same way the OG Kush is now its own SoCal landrace.

huh ??? genetics is Genetics like saying your born in thailand and move to usa and in 10 - 20 years time you will look different ??? your DNA is the same no matter where you live same goes for a marijuana plant only way to change its genetics is by crossing it with something else taking a clone from it and it will be different
kush comes from the kush mountains no such thing as kush indica grown anywhere else other then there but back in the early 70's when taking plants seeds or what ever was easy **** even 100;s of pounds of marijuana cocaine was flown via airlines to its destination so like it said afghanistan kush was crossed with a american or south american Sativa and who ever named it OG KUSH there is no denying that the indica comes from afghanistan thats a given

the ironic thing is -as far as i know- OG kush is actually sativa dominate, and not really a true kush at all.
had a small amount of paki kush, that's it.

it's a muddy back story with this one though, i aint claiming any knowledge of it 100% correct ;)

DrFever: genetics change over time due to natural forces which are applied to a body in the area in which that body lives. These natural forces cause mutations or allow mutations that occur to either work or not work. That is one of the forces involved in natural selection. If you move ffrom where you live, to another part off the world and have your genome sampled and deciphered before you leave, then go live in this other part off the world ffor 20 years, you may not be all that different but iff your genome is sampled and deciphered again, it will be slightly changed.

Landrace genetics get their individual signatures ffrom adapting to their environments over time. That is why there are different genotypes around the world today. Iff you take a landrace and put in in the soil of another part of the world and allow it to breed only with its own kind ffor 20 years, it will still change to adapt to the environment, and will eventually be anywhere ffrom somewhat different to vastly different from the original landrace genetics. Iff you aren't sure about this, read up on Darwin's studies. :)
