This presidential canna strain is a balanced, high-level THC split between sativa and indica, offering the user a pleasant but substantial high that is relaxing and very enjoyable.

Named after Barack Obama, the 44th president of the United States, presumably because, in the opinion of the strain’s creator, he was an inspiring and uplifting person with an ability to invigorate and refresh. Obama stood by his message of change and renewal, a message that the American people believed in so strongly while he was in office.

Grow info

Obama Kush is a bushy, short plant with a thick stalk and plentiful branches. When properly fertilized and amended with additional strengthening nutrients such as silica, it offers higher than average yields and beautiful, deeply colored flowers that develop into trichome laden buds.

Obama Kush can be grown indoors or outdoors and prefers a warm, dry environment where there is no worry of high humidity or moisture.

This hybrid is very sweet smelling when it is on the plant, and continues to be that way after harvest and curing. It has a unique flavor profile that is both sweet and spicy, with a hint of earthy pine. Obama Kush tastes just like it smells, sweet and spicy at the same time. Some note that it takes on a flavor that reminds them of berries on the inhale, and evolves into an earthier, herbal taste on the exhale, creating an exciting and invigorating experience.

Before harvest, Obama Kush boasts large bright green narrow leaves and plump green buds that are covered in resin and trichomes. As the buds develop and ready for harvest, they become denser with hints of purple weaving its way through the entire nugget. Deep orange hair covers everything, oozing resin.

When harvested and cured, the buds remain tinged with purple and the orange hair turns into a rich amber color. The purple often remains, giving the buds a beautiful color.

Overall, Obama Kush is a wonderful strain to grow, with high, satisfying yields.
