Complementing its wonderful piney fragrance that envelops the air the minute it is exposed, Tahoe OG Kush has bright green leaves. It has long orange pistils with some of the most beautiful crystal white hairs on a cannabis plant. These hairs/trichomes hold more THC than any other part of the plant.

Tahoe OG Kush does not have many unpleasant side effects. One of the most frequently mentioned side effect is dry mouth, which can be easily dealt with by having a glass or bottle of water near by when smoking or vaping. Water does not just help with dry mouth, it helps with any coughing that you may have too, especially if you are a new smoker. Anxiety and paranoia are always things to look out for, but long-time smokers won’t find that these are issues for them. Amateur smokers will, that is why it is important that they smoke in a safe place, preferably with someone responsible nearby, especially if it is their first time smoking. It is always better to be safe than sorry, right? Try not to smoke too much all at once either; pace yourself to find out just how much of the good stuff you can handle.

Growing Tahoe OG Kush

Growing Tahoe OG Kush is of moderate difficulty. There are certain basic skills that you need to have to successfully grow the plant, including staking, topping and branching. You also need to have basic knowledge of fertilizers, which a quick Google search will help you with. It is best to grow this strain in a controlled environment where lighting, air and humidity levels are controlled. Similarly, using rich soils is the best method of growing this strain as opposed to the hydro-method. Using fertilizers like Flower Power will help your baby to grow thanks to the extra nutrients it will receive. (In comparison to other marijuana plants, this strain is of medium height, coming it at about 50 inches.)

Like its nutrient level, water intake has to be consistent and controlled. The plant needs to be trimmed and the way it grows monitored, so that it gets maximum sunlight. If grown outdoors, it will need rich soil, plenty of sunlight and a high level of care despite its resistance to molds, pests, bacteria, mites, viruses as well as mechanical damage including those relating to temperature extremes.

A quick grower, Tahoe OG Kush flowers in 8 to 9 weeks, so you do not have to wait too long to enjoy this super Kush. You can harvest this auto-flowering bad boy in the middle of October.

Tahoe OG Kush is not quite popular for its yield, as it is usually low. It produces an average 11 ounces per plant, which does not change much whether grown indoors or outdoors. However, the strain makes up for the small yield in potency, as obvious in its myriad of benefits, plus its high THC content.
