The cannabis strain Obama Kush is an indica, baring frosty purple-hued buds and red pistils that emit a light berry scent that’s earthy, sweet, and sometimes piney. This strain was given its name because it inspires the consumer and increases stimulating thoughts – the very message of “Change” Obama campaigned with.
The parent strains are a mix between the indica Afghani and hybrid OG Kush. Its origins rest in Michigan, where it was first cultivated.
Obama Kush produces average THC levels of 16%, with some crops reaping in at 21%. Its high is known to be well rounded and balanced, good for both novice and veteran cannabis consumers. Despite its indica dominance, it creates uplifting cerebral effects that increase happiness and boost creativity. Still, this strain combats pain and reduces aches surrounding the spine. Many reviewers suggest using this strain at night since it will induce a deep relaxation, good for melting away the stress of the day.
The most common ill side-effect of this strain is cottonmouth. Some have reported dizziness after taking a few hits, so start slow with this strain and wait several minutes for its effects to take hold.
Obama Kush consists of short stature but produce sturdy stalks. Normal flowering time it between eight and nine weeks.
