Tips for Growing Obama Kush Cannabis

July 31, 2017
Strain Overview: Obama Kush is an indica strain with invigorating cerebral effects. Created by crossing OG Kush and a classic Afghani landrace strain, Obama Kush inherits a sweet earthy aroma that radiates with floral notes. This indica is a popular medical strain as it soothes the body without being too cumbersome on the mind.
Grow Techniques: Like most indicas, Obama Kush grows short and stout. A SOG (sea of green) or SCROG (screen of green) method can maximize yields either indoors in a hydroponic setup or outdoors in a greenhouse. Air circulation, pruning, and training will also help to increase this strain’s yield.

Flowering Time: 8 to 9 weeks

Yield: Moderate

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Obama Kush can handle colder temperatures, but likes to be kept in a dry climate between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: This strain grows well indoors or outdoors. Be wary of excess moisture in the air when the buds begin to develop as they will be dense and at risk for molding. 

Feeding: Feed heavier on the CalMag and introduce compost tea to keep the plant’s immune system strong against mold.
