Obama Kush: Powerful and Uplifting
Named after the 44th President of the United States, Obama Kush is a heavily stoning strain that also offers a fair bit of cerebral stimulation. Not one for the daytime (unless you have a day off), this cross of OG Kush and Afghani is couch-locking in larger quantities but makes the perfect nightcap after a long day at work, or the ideal companion for a movie marathon. Aside from its effect, Obama Kush exhibits earthy, spicy-sweet flavours and respectable yields. This indica-dominant specimen exhibits medium-high THC levels, but don’t let this fool you; its high is certainly potent.
Aroma, Flavour, and Effect of Obama Kush: The Best of Indica and Sativa
Obama Kush deviates slightly from other Kush specimens to provide a flavour and aroma that is less overpowering and fresher. Notes of grape, pine, earth, and sage are indicative of a caryophyllene-heavy terpene profile, and go down well whether smoked or vaped. Another unique characteristic of Obama Kush is its two-pronged high. To start, a moderate THC level of 14–21% gets to work uplifting the mind and generating some light euphoria and cerebral stimulation. As you take more hits, the physical, soporific effects of the strain will start to sink in, making this a great candidate for relieving tension. So whether you intend to stay relaxed on the couch or proceed with writing your crime novel, Obama Kush would be a good companion.
Growing Obama Kush: Suitable for Most Environments
Whether you choose to cultivate Obama Kush in your grow room or your backyard, you won’t be disappointed. Just make sure to keep conditions as dry as possible, and defoliate as necessary to keep air flowing through the canopy, and mould at bay. Plants are generally small and stocky, and will race through the flowering stage in just 7–9 weeks. Come harvest time, medium yields of up to 400–450g/plant are achievable.
