Vader started with his development of a signature OG Kush in 2006 starting with SFV and Larry OG against the Mr. E male from the “Mystery Kush” line, although the females had slowly been replaced over the years the male always passes on very dominant OG Kush traits when breeding with Paki and Afghani heavy varieties. Of this Line, 3 phenos were chosen by Vader and Bubblefett out 4 sequential rounds and hunting through over 350 females. Each pheno although slightly different, possessed the most dominant traits of any of OG Kush legacy cuts. These were named Ocean Grown Kush #1 #2 and #3, As a tribute to the “legend” that OG Kush stood for “Ocean Grown”. Subsequently this time of development is widely considered the beginning of Ocean Grown Seeds by the Original Team members.
By 2008 V1 Vader OG Kush phenos were chosen and crossed into a Hells cut x Ocean Grown #3. Ocean Grown Kush males #2 and #1 were discarded after the first F1 run. Once again Vader and Bubblefett set out on a deep hunt of pheno searching through hundreds of seeds, three almost identical OG Kush dominant females were discovered, after several test rounds of these chosen phenos. One of the three females was discarded and the following two phenos were referred to as Vader OG and Jedi OG cuts. 2009 and beyond led to these two cuts becoming regular crops in the Team OG line up and the flowers inevitably found their way into Southern California Collectives. Vader OG is the most popular of these cuts. It represents a spicy pine aroma and extreme kushy hashy taste. Often characterized as expressing dominant OG Kush traits, this cut still represents one of the higher yielding OG’s available.
