About Obama Runtz
The former president was no stranger to good weed, so it was only a matter of time before a plant took his name. Obama Runtz beat the others to the punch with this cerebral Indica-heavy combination of three potent parents: OG Kush, Afghani, and Runtz. When you open up Mr. President’s face, you’ll find a blast of berry aromas waiting for you, as well as a sedating fog that insomniacs will love. It’s a pretty perfect put-me-down.
The first effect that Obama gives you is a feeling of happy euphoria. As soon as you exhale, your brain will be exploding with sociability and chattiness. If you have issues in social situations, you may just need a president in your corner to get the courage you’ve been missing. Obama’s relaxing tingle not only causes your limbs to float and drift away, but your mind will be slipping into sleep in no time.
This unique combination of courage and sedation makes Obama Runtz a strain uniquely suited to hanging out with friends in a calm setting. If you’re slumped on your couch and ready to throw a day away with some friends, this strain is the right pastime, best friend, bodyguard, and snack. All in one.
The flavor is sweet cherry-Barry on the inhale, with a woody, herbal mist on the exhale. The smell gives you hints of rich, earthy flowers and herbs like a breath of garden-grown teas and floral supplements. This aroma seems to match its appearance, with its long neon nugs, thick amber hairs, an underlying structure of deep purple, and a ton of sticky resin. Growers looking for great material for new concentrates should consider the president a great starting point.
The right audience for Obama Runtz finds themselves suffering from anxiety, stress, and depression on a regular basis. With Obama, you’ll be ready for a calm state of happiness as well as a state of total sleep, even if you suffer from insomnia. For a strain that started life as a viral video, Obama Runtz has become as famous for its medicinal effects as for borrowing one of the most famous names in the world. On Obama, you’ll be full of the cerebral rush of chatting it up with a great friend. Thankfully, the plant version is easier to find than the real thing.
Initially I was hesitant to try Obama Runtz based solely off the reported %14-18% THC AVG levels, however my strain comes in at a solid 26% so some growers can make it stronger. That said, my experience with Obama Runtz is more so alike the person who additionally reviewed this strain- Initially there's that very happy, very euphoric cerebral rush & subtle energy mixed with an influx of calm & relaxation but then the strain gives way to intensifying the calm & relaxation feelings, with at times strong sedation. It's as great for pain relief as it is for stress & anxiety & moderate fatigue, insomnia and depression, at least for me! I also love the strength of my specific "batch", each batch has varying strengths.
The overview is a pretty good basis around the strain, it is potent but not the best social weed for long as it does calm you down and almost have the benifitial effects of being able to really look at yourself similar to mushrooms, its a very nice smoking weed that will get you very high.
