Olivia Kush From The Otherside Farms (LDog)


This signature strain from The Otherside Farms doesn’t seem to quite live up to its reputation, according to LDog!

12-27-11 - LDog - Olivia Kush

Submitted By: LDog (NUGGETRY Team Member)

Name: Olivia Kush

Genetics: Hindu Kush x Skunk #1

From: The Otherside Farms (Costa Mesa)

Grade: B

Type: Indica

Price: $10/gram

Looks: Olivia Kush is probably the Otherside’s numero uno strain.  The nugs are a dark green shade with flashes of purple and magenta on the under carriage of the buds.  Rising from the plump looking calyxes are dark amber and faded brown colored hairs. 

The buds look dense but will give way when you give them a squeeze.  A healthy, milky trichrome forest has sprouted over the succulent looking buds, and there is also a nice coating on the untrimmed leaves.  It seems all the meds the Ldog picked up here were poorly trimmed.

Smell: Olivia is an earthy, musty smelling flower that smells of deep, dark earth and freshly cut grass.  I can also detect a floral kush fragrance dwelling within the parameter of the other smells.  I squashed a nug and a musky coffee aroma that is a tad sweet popped its head out. 

The smell is not pungent and is only truly noticeable when the nug is broken up.  I believe the flowers dried too fast, and a green (chlorophyll) smelling aroma stuck to the flowers… this means the cure was done incorrectly, or hurriedly.

Taste: Just like the smell.  The inhale was a little harsh and left a green, waxy slick on my tongue that was the most noticeable.  A floral, earthen kush taste slowly comes about, as the waxy harsh taste of inhale fades.  I can taste that the flavor is there, it just needed more time to cure for it to really come to life.

Buzz Type: The smoke was too harsh for another bowl, but one did the trick.  After the pain of inhale went away, a narcotic dazed head sensation settles down in the dome like a curtain.  The eyes become heavy, with vision becoming a bit crisper and bright colors tend to stick out more.  The head also feels a euphoric calm that travels down through the body, relieving the body of pain and the mind of stress. 

All I know is that after the bowl, I chilled on the couch and saved my work for later.  There will be a comedown, so don’t count on walking away unscathed.

Buzz Length: Medium.  1 hour 20 minutes.

Overall: Olivia Kush is the Otherside Farms’ number 1 strain, but it didn’t have the proper cure to live up to its reputation.  The looks were legit, and the effects were on point… it was the cure that was off.  So even though the Olivia hits, it doesn’t have the full flavor and will make you cough… and it is not from expansion.  Maybe the next batch will get more TLC.  –LDog

I’d never heard of this strain before this review—probably because I’ve never ventured out to the Otherside Farms.  Hopefully this batch was a fluke?  –Tokeahontas

    Nice honest review. It’s disappointing the effects don’t match the bag appeal.

    I think both Master Kush AND Pot O’ Gold use a Hindu x Skunk #1 cross…
