While the origins of this strain have never been verified or substantiated, many have hypothesized that it was bred as a cross between OG Kush #18 and SFV OG due to their peculiar genetic similarities, which would explain the typical or genetic indica disposition of Kosher Kush. This gem, or Jew Gold, is known for producing almost shocking THC levels, with levels exceeding 29% in many sample test results. The quality of its’ high is almost un-matched, and certain to impress any stoner, regardless of familiarity or tolerance.

Aroma & Appearance
Putting aside the intensely intoxicating high, incredible amount of accolades and awards accumulated and mysteriously intriguing genetic history, Kosher Kush is also known for having one of the most profound flavour and aromatic profiles. Like most relatives of OG Kush, the taste and scent of Kosher Kush could be categorized under “earthy,” with main notes of pine, citrus and a unique added punch of sweetness. The flavour of this strain is almost indistinguishable from the smell, and similar to many kush strains, with more of a caramel-like sweetness and less of a typical spicyness to it.
