What Strain Does Trump Need Today? Purple Urkle

In the interests of national security, Leafly’s cannabis experts are preparing an ongoing series of reports matching Donald Trump’s moods, concerns, and outbursts to the strain of cannabis best suited to his — and the nation’s — wellness needs. 

Date: Aug. 10, 2016

Status Report: Earlier this week, a group of 50 former national security officials who served under Republican presidents — from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush — published an open letter describing Donald Trump as uniquely unqualified to be president of the United States. They warned that, if elected, he “would be the most reckless president in American history.”

Situation: We’re looking for a strain to counteract over-excitement, quick temper, and recklessness. Today Trump is in need of a cannabis strain that will enable him to, in the words of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, “chill the fuck out, mow the damn lawn, and sit the hell down.”

 What are the Best Cannabis Strains for Anxiety?

Recommendation: Purple Urkle. This deeply relaxing, sleep-inducing indica is renowned as an excellent strain for those suffering from over-excitement and insomnia. Leafly reviewers praise its highly powerful mellow-out qualities. “It has a stoney high and my head feels heavy,” notes reviewer HerbeHeureuse, “and my eyelids feel like they have weights on them.” Jakedellic writes: “Really great, super chill.” And UnderMySensi calls this strain “great for night time” because it “makes you feel relaxed and a little like you’re in slow motion.”
