I heard Jim Ortega (dogless) was selling cuts (for rediculously high prices) of a plant he called Kush 4.
Thing is, Kush 4 was the name of a plant Nevil pulled from the batch of afghan seeds he got from ol Jim back in the day and it was just a pheno, not a strain.
This is the same batch of seeds that produced AfgT, AfgS, Ort15, and Garlic Bud (among others.)
Nev said it had that "kush smell" so he called it "Kush 4". Probably plant 4 out of the batch of afghans.
My point being, I doubt Ortega ever had a line by that name, and Nev may or may not have sent him back some seeds he made from that plant. He never said he did. It was a female so it would have had to been outcrossed with a male from something else as Nev was not doing fems back in the day.
Nev said he crossed Kush 4 with NL#2 and that ". . . that cross was the foundation of all of today's kush lines" which was pure ego and speculation on his part.
At best I would say Ortega's Kush 4 cutting would be a descendant of that cross.
At worst, it could be something completely unrelated.
Bodhi dropping the coin for the cut and then making seeds for normal people is very kind.
