A family of hybrid cannabis varieties that stem from landrace hashish strains from the Hindu Kush mountain range of Afghanistan. While the exact origin is still unknown, Kush became popular in the U.S. in the 1970s with most current cross-breeds attributed to clones from Matt “Bubba” Berger and Josh D. Varieties in the kush family tend to have unique aromas that may be earthy, sweet, gaslike, or reminiscent of citrus, but individual varieties will affect its specific attributes. Kush is often deep green with hints of purple, and its hairs may be rust-colored. OG Kush is a popular variety that is said to provide an uplifting euphoria for cannabis users despite its heavy sedative properties. Additional varieties include Bubba Kush, Purple Kush, Master Kush, Hindu Kush, and Skywalker OG.
