OGKB Strain

There’s a lot of speculation and mystery that surrounds the cannabis strain OGKB, questions like “What’s OGKB strain stand for?” Well, that’s easy, it’s an abbreviation for OG Kush Breath. Does the OG stand for Original Gangster? Who knows, just more awe to add to the mystery, I guess. The OGKB strain is believed to be a phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies but more on that later. 

What you need to know is that this rare indica dominant strain is potently flavorful and certainly not a day-starter strain. This spunky pheno will rock your socks off with a 24%-30% THC content, and being a GSC descendant, it’s got a fairly high CBD content as well at just over 1%. As expected, people often mistake OGKB with the OGKB 2.0 strain, which is a separate award-winning phenotype developed by Mycotek.

OGKB strain genetics 

As fables are lost over the course of time, the true lineage of OGKB strain genetics can only be speculated over. Although the GSC lineage is well established, the consensus seems to agree that it’s been blended with OG Kush and the pure South African sativa, Durban Poison. Girl Scout Cookies balances well with the Chemdawg offspring, OG Kush, both sharing an indica dominance and a spicy, citrus flavor. Their combined potency is displayed in OGKB’s thc content.

Adding some DP to this ménage à trois is the well-known Durban Poison. One of the few pure sativa landrace strains with a high THC content that delivers an energized, creative high that’s accompanied by a skunky-cheese flavor. It’s basically the granddaddy of most hybrid strains we’ve come to love and has earned the adoration the world over. Adding to its appeal, DP displays easy-to-grow tendencies and rewarding yields.  

Is the OGKB strain indica or sativa? 

The original breeder of the OGKB weed strain is believed to be Jigga from Cookies co. If that’s the case, we commend and thank them. The sheer indica dominance of the OGKB marijuana strain is straight-up undeniable and almost displayed in your actions like having 30% will to party vs. 70% capacity to meld with the couch. It may fluctuate to the 40:60 indica dominance depending on your source, but the results are still intensely relaxing.

Growing the OGKB strain

There’s no particular grow info on the OGKB strain, tricks, or tips that are going to let you get bigger yields with this strain, except for good ol’ knowledge and expertise (and quite possibly the ILGM Grow Bible). The OGKB weed strain displays are easy to mildly difficult growing tendencies depending on your cultivating experience and which version of the strain you may have. Fortunately, it can be grown from clones since OGKB strain seeds can be hard to come by. 

OGKB plants form bushy foliage that would benefit from early trellising and extremely dense buds with a structure quite reminiscent of Indica-based strains. The large nugs are a bright mint green, with vivid orange pistils and gentle sugar leaves cradled in and amongst the bud. A frosting of trichome crystals is draped all over the surface, making it delectable to the eye and sticky to the touch.
