A quick look at Kosher Kush reveals that it is a product of DNA Genetics under the Reserva Privada. Almost without thinking, the assumption is that they were the original breeders. That cannot be farther from the truth.
The original Kosher Kush first made its appearance in Los Angeles. Back then, it was not known by its present name. Instead, the group behind called it Jew’s Gold. While its name may have a religious or ethnic connotation, seen as a positive or negative is irrelevant. Its quality, though, is otherworldly.
Impressed by the strain, Reserva Privada sought out the group and acquired its cut for an undisclosed price. Suffice to say; it must have been too good to refuse. To sell Jew’s Gold to a broader market, DNA Genetics decided to rename it to Kosher Kush.
Its lineage was never revealed, but from its traits and other characteristics, the influence of OG Kush is as clear as daylight. In all likelihood, the classic was crossbred with a pure Indica to create Kosher Kush. At 29% THC, it packs a wallop and can glue users to the couch.
DNA Genetics has been in the business for a long time. As such, the moment they spotted this strain during its early days, they knew its potential well ahead of the original breeders. Once they started breeding it from the cutting, it would not be long before Kosher Kush made its mark in the 420 community. For two consecutive years in 2010 and 2011, it was the Best Indica in the High Times Cannabis Cup. Furthermore, it was also the 2011 Best Strain.

Odor and Flavors
Dubbed as the tastiest smoke on earth, Kosher Kush is in a rare class of cannabis with regards to its fragrance profile. It has a distinct blend of pine and soil with a sweet and citrusy note. But what is striking about its odor is that it is incredibly pungent and fill up the house in no time at all soon after unsealing or opening its container.
It has a full-bodied lemony and piney flavor that is reminiscent of Pine-sol. During the exhale, it leaves a spicy aftertaste.
When it comes to the psychedelic high, Kosher Kush does not hold back. It acts quickly, and moments after the first hit, it sends users on a euphoric trip. Profound, but not overwhelmingly intense, it can indeed enhance the mood and make users feel happy and giggly.
It does not take too long before the Indica effects of Kosher Kush slams into the body. As heaviness weighs down users, it puts users hopelessly locked on the couch in tranquility.
Apart from the ferocity with which this hybrid leave users heavily stoned, it also brings some adverse conditions. Dry mouth and eyes are familiar to people who have used cannabis in the past. Once the physical effects hit the body, it could also induce dizziness.
It is also possible that some people who may not be accustomed to its incredibly devastating effects may feel anxious or even paranoid. These are often also a result of exceeding individual tolerance level.
Medical Use and Benefits
The sedating properties of Kosher Kush are useful as a pain reliever. It can help people find a reprieve from body aches caused by different illnesses.
Its medical benefit also extends from the physical to mental and psychological. For instance, from the moment it induces a euphoric head high, it could already wipe out stress. Even people with depression will find the hours of bliss a blessing from negativities.
There is a reason why people should Kosher Kush in the evening. After locking users up on the couch, there is no way to go but to dreamland. Its ability to induce drowsiness is useful for recovering patients and insomniacs.
Growing White Widow
Kosher Kush grows up to 2 meters tall when planted outdoors. Its leaves and flowers boast of different shades of green with bright orange hairs. An insane amount of crystals coating the buds gives it the appearance of snow and frost.
For years, only the flowers were made available to the public. However, DNA Genetics finally released its seeds not too long ago. Finally, growers can cultivate a multiple award-winning strain in the comfort of the house or the backyard.
While there is quite a bit of tending to do, Kosher Kush is also somewhat friendly to beginners. One reason is that it can resist molds and mildews. Most especially when grown in a tight space, its leaves will need regular trimming and pruning.
It takes 9 to 10 weeks of flowering indoors before growers can harvest its buds. Once ready, expect more than 450 grams per square meter. Outdoors, it transitions to the bloom phase by October. Each plant has the potential to produce some 500 grams of buds.
