Behind The Strain: Fire OG Kush

June 03, 2017 | DR. SCANDERSON FOR NORTHWEST LEAF

The familiar and riveting scents of piney Kush with notes of cedar and a deep lemon reach into the mouth.

GENETICS: Fire OG clone only​

LINEAGE: The original legend by way of Humboldt county, the Fire OG Kush cutting needs little introduction. A clone-only strain descendant from Chemdawg is often imitated, but seldom replicated.  

FLOWER TIME: 68-73 days

A bit of a slow starter and is a lighter feeder in veg you can expect extreme aversion to change in environment. Early, steady low stress training will assist in creating a structure from which one can form a somewhat feasible indoor plant. Once transitioned to bloom, she can stretch 300 percent or more growing largely spaced internodes that need all but constant training to structure any sort of a productive canopy. She likes nitrogen and calcium through weeks two and three of flower but still is sensitive to high-nutrient concentrations thriving with lower levels. Within about 70 days she will produce medium sized spear shaped nuggets, comprised of tightly stacked calyxs deeply encrusted with resin. This plant prioritizes resin production, smell, taste and potency over structure and yield and with its unruly, often precarious growth pattern and nutrient sensitivities make her suited best for intermediate and advanced gardeners.

The flowers have tightly organized calyxs, exploding from a center of what appears to be an opaque white fuzz. The overall color appears bright green and blonde with welcomed breaks of deep orange crevices on a consequence of the vast array of trichome heads. As stacked as each flower is, it breaks apart perfectly sending out a potent rush of deep Kush and acrid lemon Pine-Sol cleaner. The familiar and riveting scents of piney Kush with notes of cedar and a deep lemon reach into the mouth, jerking fiercely as a thick rush of potent smoke escapes through the throat. My chest cavity explodes and a bucket of Murphy’s Oil spills out of my mouth as I exhale immediately complimented by a devastating head rush.

The instant head high is followed by the deep relaxation that OG Kush is known for. As my eyelids take a familiar “sunset” position I can feel my perky, clear, Kushed up, symptom-free state emerge. Special thanks to those that have cultivated and preserved this special plant for so long and bringing them to my garden.
