Holy grail strain review
DNA Genetics was founded in Amsterdam in 2003. Two breeders from California – Don and Aaron – moved to Amsterdam to escape the hectic, unsafe California cannabis scene.Realizing premier cannabis was hard to come by, …
I came across this batch of the Holy Grail Kush strain on my recent trip to SFVDM in Van Nuys, CA. One glance at the dense flowers, coupled with the heavy pine scent told me that I was in for an experience to remember.
Overall, I would consider the Holy Grail Kush strain to be a great option for patients in search of an effective strain for appetite stimulation, nausea, and minor pain. It could also be beneficial for those suffering from depression, PTSD, and more.

“The intense pine aroma and flavor that it possessed was everything that I hope to find in an OG Kush hybrid.”

DNA Genetics decided to cross their award-winning Kosher Kush strain with a phenotype of OG Kush (OG #18).

Bred by DNA Genetics, the Holy Grail Kush strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid that has won a number of awards, including first place at 2011 HIGH Cannabis Cup. It is highly regarded for its distinct OG Kush aroma and flavor.
Surely enough, this batch of the Holy Grail Kush strain was no different. The intense pine aroma and flavor that it possessed was everything that I hope to find in an OG Kush hybrid.
This was definitely not my first experience medicating with a DNA Genetics strain (see: Tangie, LA Confidential, Lemon OG Kush), and I’m rarely disappointed by their work; there’s a reason the Tangie strain wins all awards that it does.
In the time since it was unveiled, the Holy Grail Kush strain has won a few awards of its own. Of course, this doesn’t really surprise me too much, considering the its intense OG flavor.
Holy Grail Kush Strain: Kosher Kush X OG #18
Holy grail strain review
Said to be descended from Kosher Kush and OG 18, this strain’s cult is based almost entirely on potency, with a reported average of 23 percent THC. Prizewinning issue of prizewinning parents, HGK is high-octane indica dominant, so that wondrously layered and trippy rollercoaster effect of superior indica is at full force here.
The ever-reliable “three-hit test” brought on a spasm of coughing and a fairly long interval between the second and third doses. Unlike your (allegedly) normal indica high, this strain moved to activity, in my case a fun, if pointless, shopping trip. Far from the usual numbing effects, HGK imparts a mellow and cheerful glow, along with something very much like the legendary stoner absentmindedness, in which you temporarily forget things like the sunglasses atop your head.

Chunky, salted-over with magically delicious white fibers, and thick as stale cheesecake, my share of these heavy weeds was a conspicuously oversized, multibud gram handed over by an evilly grinning budista in some East L.A. shoebox of a dispensary.
Not even a sealed plastic bag could suppress the reek of this legendary strain. Gentle euphemisms like “full-bodied” or “distinctive,” won’t cut it – this stuff is flat out fetid.

The wrap: Indica lovers, your crusade ends here.
From the first updraft to the slow mellow descent, this one is a first-class ride. Unlike many of the more celebrated strains, this one is relatively easy to find.
