Lineage of SFV OG

When the founder of OG Kush left the country, he left two cuts of the strain with two different growers. One cut went to Orange County and eventually turned into what we know as Larry OG. The other went to the valley and eventually became known as SFV OG.
The original cross of OG Kush is a unique lineage containing ChemDawg x (Lemon Thai x Old World Paki Kush). SFV OG has become extremely popular over the years. While most people would assume OG would mean it is an indica, SFV OG is actually a sativa dominant hybrid. The reason for this is the cut of SFV OG was back crossed multiple times.
