Tahoe OG Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that is known for its pain and stress relief as well as its effectiveness in calming and relief from insomnia.

Strong and fast-acting, this strain is best consumed at home, specifically by those suffering from lack of appetite, insomnia or pain. Tahoe OG embodies all of the typical indica effects with an added euphoric, sativa-like kick due to its superb breeding and is a top nighttime strain providing the user with an extremely lazy, heavy body and relaxed state of mind. Tahoe has a lemony, earthy taste, matures at 9–11 weeks, and is a phenotype of OG Kush.[1]


In his review for High Times, Danny Danko wrote: "From eastern Cali comes one of the strongest cannabis varieties of all time, the Tahoe OG Kush – often imitated but never perfected as well as it has been by breeder Swerve from the Cali Connection, a breeding outfit that has earned much respect for its Kush-heavy stable of strains in seed form. Swerve pollinated the original and legendary Tahoe clone with his San Fernando Valley OG F3 male, and the result adds fuel to the fire for sure. The Tahoe OG grown from Swerve’s seeds produces thick nuggets completely covered in glistening, glandular trichomes, but without the typical hermaphroditic tendencies of many closet-breeding pollen-chuckers’ watered-down versions. Medical patients will appreciate the calming properties of the Tahoe OG Kush, which relieves insomnia as well as bodily pains and stress."[2]


The strain Buddha Tahoe by Big Buddha Seeds was created from a cutting of Tahoe OG Kush from the Cali Connection Crew. According to CannabisCupWinners.com, "The Tahoe OG Kush was chosen because of its extremely potent, strong, sharp taste synonymous with the many Kush varieties available in the United States today." Buddha Tahoe won third place at the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup.[3]
