Odor and Flavors
People have different preferences. Even so, there is a consensus on a few strains that are repelling. Presidential OG, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. With its earthy and citrusy scent that is reminiscent of OG Kush, it has proven to be a delight to many users. Its distinct odor carries over to its flavors with a note of pine that becomes more pronounced upon exhalation. A sweet lingering aftertaste further makes its smoke pleasant to the throat.
Despite being a mostly Indica strain, the Sativa traits of Bubble Gum is felt by the users. At its onset, it delivers an uplifting mental high that positively swings the mood. Most people early on feel a sense of happiness sweep into the mind. Such elation tends to make them more sociable. In fact, most also tend to laugh more than usual.
The gentle cerebral high is soon joined by the Indica side of Presidential OG. As it works its way to the body, a profound sense of relaxation sets in. Depending on how much herbs one uses, users either remain productive, active, and cheerful, or they may find themselves getting lazy.
As alluded to earlier, this is a highly potent strain. Even so, it is not one that can cause a couch-lock if used in moderation. Of course, if users do consume more, then it likely will lead to that. In fact, many recreational users do opt to have that kind of relaxing experience, especially when using this hybrid at the end of the day.
No matter how perfect a cannabis may seem, there are always adverse reactions users have to look out for. It is already a given to have dry mouth and eyes when smoking any kind of strain including Presidential OG.
In some cases, users may also have a mild headache. If the consumption is too much, then the strain can be overwhelming. The intense effects it delivers can cause some to feel dizzy or a little paranoid. From the accounts of people who have experienced these reactions, most dismiss it as being too mild.
Medical Use and Benefits
CBD is often cited as the compound that has promising use as a medicine. In fact, there are already CBD drugs such as the ones given to people suffering from seizures. Studies are also being made on its use with many other types of illnesses.
On the other hand, the notorious THC is the reason why many governments are reluctant to legalize the use of cannabis. But the compound that causes psychoactive effects is also the same one that also gives benefits to medical cannabis users.
As the strain induces an uplifting cerebral high, it also helps manage stress. Besides reducing its level, it can even completely wipe it out. Because users tend to feel euphoric, then it follows that people with depression benefit by being able to cope and control their thoughts and feelings.
CBD is often attributed to having pain-relief properties. Unfortunately, Presidential OG does not have a high level. Still, the mental high it induces helps in mild cases by taking the attention of people away from the discomforts. Meanwhile, the heavy-hitting Indica side of the strain does help in releasing tension from the body resulting in a full-body relaxation. Even if it does not have the same sedating characteristics of others, it does offer a small reprieve from chronic pains and aches.
Finally, users feeling completely relaxed are also bound to fall asleep. In this way, it can be useful to people who need to sleep. People with trouble sleeping and especially the Insomniacs are going to find this strain an excellent companion.
