However, according to Reserva Privada, Kosher Kush originated in LA and was jokingly referred to as “Jew’s Gold.” Unhappy with the name, but in love with the strain, Reserva Privada acquired the strain from local growers and started growing it themselves. They knew the strain needed a name change if it was going to make it big in the cannabis community, but they wanted to honor the original grower’s ideas and renamed it “Kosher Kush.”

The reason for this name? They say people who get the chance to try this strain feel blessed for the opportunity to try such a unique, heavy-hitting indica strain. In fact, this indica dominant strain is well known for its strong effects and continuous production of high THC levels.

Kosher Kush is such a strong and unique indica strain that some samples of the strain can test over 29% THC. Kosher Kush even won the High Times Cannabis Cup best indica two years in a row and won the best strain in 2011.
