Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” OG Kush was first cultivated in Florida, in the early ‘90s when a strain from Northern California was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. The result was a hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with notes of fuel, skunk, and spice.

The genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, OG Kush arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it (along with “The Bubba,” which was later used to create the famed Bubba Kush) from Florida to legendary cultivator Josh D. Since then, OG Kush has become a worldwide staple used to create numerous famous strains like GSC and Headband.

From Wikileaf, ” The high from OG Kush is more head-focused than physical. It starts with a sudden headrush that may lead users to feel more focused on their surroundings; sounds and colors may seem intensified. This alteration of the senses may soon give way to a general uplift in mood that progresses towards euphoria. The increase in focus is not as cerebral as with more pure sativas — smokers will not suffer from a disorienting sense of rapid thought association or “mindrace.” It’s a versatile smoke that lends itself to the user’s mood and mindset The combination of mental stimulation and improvement in mood makes this a uniquely social strain, good for parties and lively conversations. It’s also a great way to enhance activities that involve the body and mind, like video games, exercise, and even sex. OG Kush has medical application as a means to temporarily relieve anxiety and depression by helping users live in the moment. Its sense of focus can also be helpful for those suffering from attention deficit disorders. Some have reported relief from headaches and migraines with this strain as well. As with many sativa varieties, OG Kush has the potential to make users feel paranoid with higher doses.

From the OCS website, ” A mellow blend with a prominently spicy flavour featuring earthy, piney undertones and hoppy aroma. OG Kush GE has dense buds covered in silvery-white trichomes, accented by vibrant orange pistils. A single-origin extract product, these sugar-like crystals are known for their fulsome terpene profile, potency, and versatility. Carefully made using freshly harvested cannabis material, this product is recognized as one of the truest representations of the cannabis strain.

OG Kush GE kief by JWC cost $20.98 for 3.5 grams with 22.3% THC.   For our review, we used 0.15 grams in a pipe.

The taste is great for the first two draws from the pipe.  The “high” is immediate and accelerating.  Physical effects on the body is very noticeable.  It has a very fast buzzy feel in the first 10 minutes.  There’s strong uplifting euphoria and some cerebral stimulation.  For the first half hour, we were put into a surreal state of mind where reality can shimmer.  Tracking time is a challenge.  We never expected this strong buzzy takeoff.  It is not a Hash “high.”  It is more like a strong flower “high.”

Comparing JWC OG Kush kief to King Tut kief, we like the King Tut better because it is more potent.  But, King Tut is also more expensive.  For us, the best use of kief is as a supplement to flowers.

Activity pairing is best for total annihilation evenings.  Kief goes well with everything especially moonrock joints.  On its own, JWC OG Kush GE kief can be a destination on itself.  The first half hour of OG Kush GE kief is an intense euphoric uplift that maybe suitable for some special adult activities?

Cannabis 2.0 and the arrival of hash and kief are additions to our cannabis toolkit to create special concoctions for special occasions.  We would use kief to get rid of lower quality inventory by adding kief as a booster supplement.  We could add kief to superior flowers making them more even more potent and impress friends?  Make rosin?  The use of kief is limited only by our imagination in a world of possibilities.  And, it is the cheapest kief.

On an investment note, we have an interesting observation on covid-19 isolate environment and the local grey market which are based on face to face transactions.   We have noted some hard core grey market shifting to legal online purchase in these difficult times.  This coincided with the introduction of major price reduction and discounted volume offerings in the legal Cannabis market.  A few data points is not a market trend but interesting food for thought?
