Presidential OG (also called Presidential Kush) by Royal Queen Seeds is an indica cross between Bubble Gum and OG Kush that definitely knows how to get your attention with its intense citrus-pine smell. As far as taste goes, it maintains the pine flavor and heads into more earthy terrain. Almost purely indica, this strain hits hard and fast with a sedative effect that make this a popular choice for those dealing with insomnia or stress.
When properly cured, buds of Presidential OG carry the rich, woodsy scent of pine. A slightly lemony tang also lurks underneath. Breaking up or grinding the flowers yields notes of spice and incense from the strain’s Kush lineage. When combusted, Presidential OG burns with a surprisingly smooth smoke and tastes dank and hashy on the exhale. Notably, there are no discernible grape flavors — this is because the pigments that create occasional purple hues do not have a corresponding effect on the strain’s taste.
The high from Presidential OG sets in quickly for an indica. Shortly after ingestion, waves of relaxation spread outward from the core and down through the limbs. Smokers may breathe more easily and their eyelids may feel increasingly heavy. More dreamy than cerebral, this strain will elevate the smoker’s general sense of well-being, making it a great asset in buzzy social settings. As dosage is bumped up, couchlock may set in, sapping any productivity and keeping users pinned in place. Because of its thoroughly sleepy nature, Presidential OG is a good strain to use at night when unwinding after a long day.
Presidential OG also has several applications for medical cannabis patients. It can be an effective analgesic for troublesome aches and pains. It can also slow down a racing mind and temporarily blunt the harsh symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This strain is also prized an antidote to insomnia. Presidential OG comes with a lower risk of paranoia, making it a good choice for patients who are prone to panic.
