Obama Kush Strain Review – Bonza Blog

American presidents will always be polarizing figures in that either one loves to death or hate. Regardless, Obama Kush, so named after Trump’s predecessor, brings the best of both worlds. No, it’s not politics and policies but rather the way it brings users to cloud nine before leaving users in a long-lasting state of tranquility.

The breeder of the original Obama Kush remains unknown. It appears to be an offspring of a female {Skunk x unknown} and a male {OG Kush x Afghani}. Although Superior Genetics in Michigan claims to be the breeder, it is not confirmed at this time.

From the bits and pieces of information gathered on this weed, it is fairly to see where Obama Kush inherited its exceptional psychedelic effects.

Skunk is a legendary strain. It has been around for several decades and is notable for its high energy cerebral high. OG Kush, on the other hand, is a classic in the West Coast of the United States and notable for its ability to put users at ease. Finally, there is nothing much to be said about Afghani because it is arguably the best Indica in the world.

Though Obama Kush is Indica-dominant, it first induces a clean cerebral high soon after the first puff. As the mind clears up, focus sharpens, and the uplifting sensation also brings about a sense of happiness. Some people may even feel euphoric.

While this is going on, a tingling sensation starts to trickle down to the body. Packed with up to 21% THC, the mostly-Indica Obama Kush can kick in hard and put users in deep relaxation and couch-lock. Although initially, the strain can inspire creative thoughts, the physical effects of the hybrid can turn those ideas into introspection. At no time does it cause a mind-bending buzz even at the peak of the body high.

Adverse Reactions

Obama Kush is a potent strain, but its adverse effects are not any better or worse than other cannabis. As experienced users are aware of, its use is likely to cause dryness of mouth and especially the throat. Furthermore, it can also cause dry eyes. At any point during the mental or body high, it may also cause some people to feel dizzy.

One thing to note is that the Sativa effects of Obama Kush are not likely to cause people to feel paranoid or anxious. However, it may very well do so if one were to use too much.

If one is planning to grow Obama Kush, it is not finicky in that it can thrive indoors and outdoors although it is best cultivated by experienced growers.

Indoors, the plant yields more using the sea of green (SOG) or screen of green (SCROG) method. The temperature has to be kept between 18 to 27 degrees Celsius, and the environment has to be kept dry. There must be proper air circulation, as well as regular pruning and training to maximize production. Its flowering period is between 9 to 10 weeks with an average yield of around 400 grams per square meter.

Obama Kush thrives well outdoors where the climate is warm. It should be fed with CalMag and compost tea to boost its immune system against molds and other infections. If all goes well, it is ready for harvest in October with an average yield of 450 grams per plant.
