Elite grower and industry pioneer Josh Del Rosso has cultivated the OG Kush varietal since the mid-1990s and helped launch this potent plant to legendary status. Josh’s OG Kush not only became the very fabric of LA cannabis and pop culture, but fueled a west coast phenomenon for the last two decades.
The Original: Josh D and OG Kush
Josh Del Rosso’s star-crossed affair with OG Kush began in 1996 when his friend Matt “Bubba” Berger shared a cutting from this now legendary varietal.
A cannabis cultivator, Josh knew pure potency when he experienced it. The gorgeous diamond-studded flowers of OG Kush put off a dynamic, layered aroma so unique, with effects so equally rare, that Josh became determined to dial in grow techniques for this one-of-a-kind plant. And it’s a good thing, too—devotion would be a requirement for the hard-to-grow, low-yield Kush.
The late 1990s was a catalytic time for indoor cannabis cultivation in California. The medical marijuana initiative, Prop 215, had just passed and Josh and his crew of underground cannabis growers were in pursuit of indoor hydroponic perfection in the Hollywood Hills and parts of the San Fernando Valley. They shared information, equipment and know-how and their breakthrough grow techniques were a perfect match for the finicky Kush.
Josh’s OG Kush—the OG stands for Original—caught on like wildfire and became the most potent, sought-after flower around. Today the plant serves as the cornerstone of top-shelf cannabis and has inspired decades of experimentation.
