Platinum Kush, or Platinum OG Kush, is one of the classic OG Kush phenotypes from the west coast. This phenotype is preferred by many patients due to its uplifting and anxiolytic effects, making Platinum Kush very relaxing and happy indica strain. Platinum Kush is reported to make patients feel relaxation, euphoria, happiness, hunger, and a general uplifting mood. Medicinally, Platinum Kush is most known to relieve stress, pain, insomnia, depression, and nausea.
Platinum Kush is a phenotype of OG Kush, meaning that it’s a certain breed of the strain with separate physical properties. According to Leafly.com’s article on cannabis genetics, “The plant’s genetic makeup, also called a genotype, acts as a blueprint for growth: it allows a spectrum of physical possibilities, but it is up to the environment to induce these characteristics. The physical expression of a genotype is referred to as a phenotype, which is simply defined as the traits that the environment pulls out from the plant’s genetic code. Everything from color, shape, smell, and resin production are affected by the environment.” Since Platinum Kush shares the same DNA as OG Kush, the effects, look, and smell are all similar, but different enough to classify it as a separate strain.
Platinum Kush has a slight platinum shade due to the high level of resinous trichomes on all surfaces of the buds. The green and purple hues of the flower are complimented by orange hairs, a classic trait of OG Kush. The buds are incredibly dense on this high yielding strain, and when cracked in half, the smell that wafts out of the buds is a pungent combo of lemon, earth, skunk, fuel, and sweetness. Platinum Kush may be one of the prettiest OG Kush phenotypes when properly grown.

“Kuuuusshhhhhh is just how this one makes you feel. Like sinking into a nice pillow. I didn’t have a strong feeling one way or the other for the smoke. (Although my vape broke and I had to use my little water pipe — so I tasted a LOT more smoke than I usually do. I will review again when my beloved vape is back in action.) But the high is very nice combination body/head high. A calmly centered high. The creative buzzing is there, but turned to low simmer so it’s not always poking at you. The body is relaxed, but not couch-locked. You can do necessary stuff; but the high is not what I’d describe as “energizing.” (I actually found it a pretty helpful space for writing.)…” -nw_wa
“…This bud is great for focus and movement, for intensity and alertness… I felt like spider-man. I know, it seems contradictory to ‘be high’ and to be an athlete, but… some of my childhood, a lot of it in fact, leaves me very sad at times, and very distracted. So much so, that many of the things I like to do, I cant enjoy doing, because the feelings are so rapacious in their attempt to ‘get my attention’. So, I find that this Platinum Kush does an excellent job of giving the body a very beautiful sensation, one that compliments the tone’s of anxiety fear and hardship. The result, my activities are more enjoyable and free flowing… And that just feels good I suppose…“ – OccamsPhazer
“The Variety I had was expertly grown and cured, after examining the nugs for only a few seconds this became obvious. Some of the most crystalline bud I have ever seen, and it smelled like a cheese and fruit platter when ground up. Very heavy high, great for pain relief and relaxation, I would strongly recommend trying this if you come across it, you are investing in your happiness.” -nogame
