Modern, quirky, and off the beaten path, Kosher Kush is a newcomer that’s generated a lot of buzz.

First bred in Los Angeles under a not-so-great name, this strain’s genetics are a mystery. Most growers agree that this strain carries some OG Kush ancestry, but we can only guess at the rest of this legend’s lineage. Kosher Kush has, however, passed on its impressive characteristics to strains you’ll recognize: 24K Gold, Raider Kush, Family Jewels, and Miss USA.

Before this bud hit the limelight, it caught the attention of seedbank Reserva Privada—but you might know them better as a sub-division of DNA Genetics. A team of experienced breeders from the West Coast, Reserva Privada’s buds are the best of the best—all of their strains have the distinction of each winning a cannabis cup!

In love with the strain, but not the name, Reserva Privada acquired their own cut from the original growers and began growing and developing the strain themselves. To honour the strain’s origins, they named it Kosher Kush, which they say is a reference to all those who try it being “blessed” by its rare taste and aroma. Uniquely rich, earthy, and a bit fruity, it’s a flavour that connoisseurs everywhere swear by—and is a big contributor to this bud’s many awards. Kosher Kush is just one of Reserva Privada’s star-studded buds: it won the High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Indica in both 2010 and 2011, and also took home their coveted Best Strain of 2011.

Reserva Privada’s efforts brought this strain world renown. Now a rising star in the cannabis scene, Kosher Kush is sure to be a future classic. Watch out for this one in 50 years—we’re sure we’ll see this one on every throwback “must-try” list, right beside Granddaddy Purple and Jack Herer.

Kosher Kush has light green, heavily frosted buds that we find are less dense than most cultivars with OG Kush genetics. When we open the jar, we’re delighted by this strain’s room-filling aroma of flowers, earth, and subtle notes of fruit!

The Effects

As a heavy indica, Kosher Kush made a name for itself for its awesome body stone. You’ll want to hold off on until the evening with this one, because we never get anything done after this smoke. Its hint of sativa gives us that “blessed” feeling that this bud is named for: melt into the couch, close your eyes, and let yourself float off into space. This is a peaceful, worry-free smoke that’ll have you saying “Everything’s Kosher.”
