The 2017 inauguration is one of the most conflicting in the past several decades. However, in the midst of all of the anxiety and excitement, it’s sometimes good to take a few moments for some laughter and peace. These five cannabis strains are sure to inspire a thoughtful and connected mood after inauguration day.
The US has officially entered a new political era. No matter where you fall along the fence, there will certainly be some big changes ahead. If this inauguration has you feeling focused or inspired to get more involved, Flo is your perfect strain.
Flo is a slightly sativa-dominant hybrid. Moderate in potency and ultra mellow, Flo is the perfect strain to help you concentrate and dedicate time to new pursuits. Unlike other sativa-dominant strains, Flo provides an easy experience that isn’t prone to raciness, especially in moderate doses.
Between 2007 and 2015, public trust if the US government fell to a low 3 in every 10 individuals. A poll from the Pew Reseach center discovered that since the beginning of the financial and housing crisis, support of the federal government has been at an all-time low.
Public trust began to fall in the 1960s, and recent surveys suggest that approval issues may continue.
While passing fair and meaningful cannabis reform would certainly improve approval, legend has it that a government-sponsored program has led to at least one amazing cannabis creation. G-13 is a powerful indica that is rumored to have been an escapee from a US Government research project.
Is this true? Who knows. But, this sedative and deeply relaxing strain will certainly help you take in the day’s events in stride.
3. Obama Kush
Missing Obama already? Perhaps this will be your favorite strain for the next four years. Obama Kush is a balanced indica hybrid that often inspires thoughtful conversation and physical relaxation.
It’s the perfect way to sit back and muse over the coming years in a calm and mellow space. With around 18% THC on average, this soothing flower is recommended for those with moderate cannabis experience and above.
4. Gorilla Glue #4
Those in the mood to get a little extra lifted after such a big day might enjoy some Gorilla Glue #4. One of the most potent strains in the world, Gorilla Glue #4 is sure to offer a mind-bending experience. Perhaps slightly on the sleepy side, Gorilla Glue #4 provides a strong, altered experience with plenty of euphoric, cerebral activity and a slow body high.
The THC in this strain has reached over 30% in some samples. Gorilla Glue #4 will be a little intense for new consumers, but those looking for something that will elevate their minds to new levels will love this strong-armed bud.
5. OG Kush
Why not pass along the peace pipe? OG Kush is one of the most famous strains around. Even those who are not very familiar with cannabis may have heard of this strain. OG Kush is a balanced hybrid that may lean slightly to the sedative side, depending on the phenotype.
This strain is one that is loved by just about everyone, all differences aside. OG Kush is a strain for sharing. Perhaps post-inauguration is the perfect time to reach out and smoke some of this comforting flower with someone you don’t know very well. You never know what you’ll learn.
