OG Kush CBD: Strain Review

⚡ Featured products

Genetic Lineage of OG Kush CBD

The OG, OG Kush stepped into the spotlight in the early 90s, as a simply stunning result of crossing California’s ChemDawg with Hindu Kush from Amsterdam.

Having been bred in Florida, it was taken over to California in 1996 where it was bred with Bubba, and just about everything else the west coast had to offer back then. As you’d expect from such a legendary strain, it has fathered and grandfathered countless famous west coast strains, including Bubba Kush (OG Kush x The Bubba), Headband (OG Kush x Master Kush x Sour Diesel), Abacus (OG Kush x Purple Urkle), and Girl Scout Cookies (OG Kush x Durban Poison).

In fact, as the original Kush strain, if you’re looking at a strain with OG or Kush in its name, it’s fairly likely that OG Kush is in that strain’s lineage at some point down the line.

It was only when the popularity of hemp flower started to take off that OG Kush was crossed with an elite hemp strain to produce the OG Kush CBD strain. A beautiful strain that retains all of the sought-after characteristics from its papa (looks, smell, taste), but with a cannabinoid profile similar to its CBD momma, or maybe OG Kush was the momma… Who knows?

OG Kush CBD Flower Strain Review

In order to be classified as a hemp flower strain and therefore be legal under federal law, your OG Kush needs to contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. Some OG Kush CBD flower contains a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD, in which case it’s classed as a cannabis strain and should only be purchased in states where cannabis is medically or recreationally legal.

Always check that your CBD hemp flower vendor can provide you with a third-party lab report that verifies the total cannabinoid content. Please note that the total amount of THC may be slightly higher than 0.03% as it also takes Delta 8 THC into account. What you need to look for is the percentage of Delta 9 THC specifically.


OG Kush CBD effects are wide ranging and potent. The original OG Kush has long been known for its powerful medicinal properties and this CBD-rich version seems to be carving out a similar reputation.

Most strains that are famed for their therapeutic properties are indica dominant and OG Kush is no different. This is probably due to the fact that they offer greater relaxation, so muscles and mind are allowed to melt away into a more blissful state of being.

OG Kush is usually rated around 75% indica and the experience is one of deep, stress-free relaxation, but you’ll remain clear headed throughout. This strain will soothe away worries and anxieties, lift your spirits, release tension, and relieve pain.

It may also give you the munchies (like it does to me).

Common use cases for OG Kush CBD are;

Flavor Profile

The flavor of this strain is unique, complex, and layered, and (be warned) you may want to keep tasting, and tasting, and tasting, until you’re so relaxed you can’t move.

With notes of diesel, cinnamon, and fruity citrus, capturing your senses at first, only to be overtaken by an earthy, piney, musk, followed by a diesel rerun. Describing it just doesn’t do it justice as it sounds like it’s all over the place, but it’s simply sublime.

Dominant terpenes:

  • Myrcene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Pinene
  • Ocimene
  • Limonene


You don’t need to put your nose to the bag to get a sense of this strain’s aromas, because it will come to you as soon as the bag’s airlock is released. The aroma is bright and faintly floral, with citrus and sweetgrass.


This strain grows short and dense, which is great for growers as they can achieve bigger yields in smaller spaces, but it does mean that 3.5g of this flower will probably look smaller than the 3.5g bag of another strain you bought.

OG Kush CBD buds are tightly clustered nugs of vivid green, with orange pistols interspersed. If you like a bud that sparkles then OG Kush is your gal as her trichome expression is positively aggressive. She could be the poster child of cannabis.

You have to be particularly careful when buying any heavy bud, like CBD OG Kush, as the fact that it grows so densely makes it prone to mold, insects, and disease. Make sure your vendor can provide you with a third-party lab report that verifies potency and purity.

Here are three great vendors that are selling OG Kush right now.

Best vendors of OG Kush CBD Flower

OG Kush Plain Jane
CBD Incubator score iReviewed by our independent team
Excellent option

Plain Jane

Plain Jane has a nice batch of OG Kush that has bigger and fluffier-than-usual buds, but with the same great taste and experience

It’s third-party tested for potency, pesticides, and moisture content, and their results are super easy to find, right next to the product description online. At 12.4% CBD, it’s not the most potent batch we’ve tried, but it has a strong terpene profile and offers really great effects still.

Plain Jane also has some OG Kush CBD crumble in stock, so why not add a little crumble to your bowl to give it an OG upgrade?

OG Kush Cannaflower
CBD Incubator score iReviewed by our independent team
Great option


Cannaflower’s batch of OG Kush is also very good, but I’d only recommend it if you wanted to try OG Kush from multiple vendors or if the other vendors here have run out (please tell us, so we can update our lists!).

It contains 14.8% CBD, it smokes like a dream, and has great effects, but it’s just a little on the expensive side for me, especially while Plain Jane still has some in stock.

Buy OG Kush CBD vape cartridge

Sometimes I want a hit of CBD but can’t be bothered to roll a joint or even pack a bowl (lazy, right?), so it’s times like these that I reach for my CBD vape.

And luckily for those of us that like the taste of OG Kush, a few vendors have taken the special OG Kush blend of terpenes to manufacture OG Kush CBD vape carts. You want to make sure you buy your carts, OG Kush or not, from a reputable vendor to make sure that they’re good quality and don’t clog all the time.

Excellent option

Plain Jane

All Plain Jane’s vape carts are made with full spectrum CBD distillate and terpenes, which means no nasty additives or thinning agents, plus they’re also third-party tested for residual solvents, as well as potency.

Their OG Kush CBD cartridge contains 750mg of CBD and can be purchased on its own or with a battery for added convenience.

Their terpene mix includes limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene with smaller amounts of linalool, pinene, and humulene, perfecting the complexity of this strain’s flavor.

Buy OG Kush CBD vape pen

If you’re looking for a disposable vape that you can use right out of the box, then CBDfx has a very affordable one (read my full CBDfx review here).

#1 — Best in class!


CBDfx’s disposable vape pen is a 2g pen containing 500mg of CBD and 5mg of THC. Being so large, it may need recharging from time to time, but that’s easy to do with any old micro USB charger you have lying around at home.

It smokes smoothly and tastes great, but unfortunately they do use fillers and artificial flavors in their vape formula, which is maybe why it’s so affordable.

Buy OG Kush CBD Oil

CBDfx also sells bottles of OG Kush CBD oil for vaping, so if you have a refillable cart and a rechargeable vape battery, then this bottle of vape juice will save you money in the long run.

Buy OG Kush Delta 8

If you’re looking for something that will give you more of a euphoric buzz, like the original high-THC strain, then you might find what you’re looking for with these OG Kush Delta 8 products.

OG Kush Delta 8 effects are highly sought-after, as they combine the giddy, happy buzz of Delta 8 with the soothing, calming effects from this famous strain’s terpenes. And let’s not forget about that awesome taste…

OG Kush Delta 8 flower

I’ve tried a few vendors of OG Kush Delta 8 flower, but haven’t found one that I’m super happy with yet. They’ve been too harsh to smoke in order to enjoy it properly. However, if you know a good supplier (or are one!) that you can recommend to us, then please do get in touch in the comments below and let us know!

OG Kush Delta 8 vape carts

Secret Nature Disposable Vape Pen
CBD Incubator score iReviewed by our independent team
#1 — Best in class!

Secret Nature

If you’re looking for Delta 8 and OG Kush terpenes in a vape cartridge, then Secret Nature has a deliciously potent option.

Secret Nature has a great range of both CBD and Delta 8 disposables. Their 1g OG Kush Delta 8 disposable is made from pure full-spectrum, organic hemp extract and cannabis-derived terpenes, meaning no fillers or artificial flavors here.

Their third-party testing verifies a 78% potency on this particular cart, but it’s lacking any purity testing that would add to its appeal (testing for residual solvents etc).

It comes nicely packaged (boxed and mylar wrapped) and fits discreetly in your palm for those sneaky tokes when you’re out and about
