About Rob Ford Kush
Controversy follows wherever he goes, but thankfully, the strain named after Toronto’s former mayor Rob Ford isn’t quite as dramatic. Crafted by unknown breeders, it’s believed that Rob Ford Kush hails from, obviously, the OG Kush family. This indica-dominant strain is perfect for both recreational and medical users who just want to kick back and relax after a hard day.
Rob Ford Kush is approachable for all users with a very consistent 15% THC potency. Eye-catching to say the least, nugs are round with a speckled green and brown appearance, light hairs, and amber trichomes. As one would expect with assumed OG Kush roots, the strain features flavors and aromas of lemon, pine, skunk, earth, and hash. For some, this combination may be too intense, but seasoned smokers will typically appreciate this mix.
A definite creeper strain, Rob Ford Kush takes a bit before you start to feel her effects. Most find that they first notice a sense of euphoria that washes over them like a gentle wave with a strong head high that follows soon after. Some might feel creative for a short period of time, but eventually, sedation becomes the name of the game. From here on out, two main themes permeate your high - an introspective and stoney mindset and extreme hunger. Prepare snacks ahead of time if you’re smart, as you likely won’t want to move much.
Rather than being completely agitating like the man himself, Rob Ford Kush offers incredibly soothing effects for medical marijuana users. Those who struggle with daily depression, anxiety, and stress often turn to this bud as a way to unwind from their woes, offering them just a bit of freedom before bedtime. Other issues including a lack of appetite and insomnia can also be addressed quickly, and like most strains are capable of nowadays, instances of physical pain are soothed after a few puffs.
By and large, this strain is a great option for home growers, however newer cultivators will need to take extra care in a few specific areas. Rob Ford Kush grows into hearty plants that do well inside or outdoors, but they need a lot of ventilation to avoid rotting from too much moisture. Thinning out the plant from time to time will also help, as it can become susceptible to mold and mildew. Give this strain between 7 and 9 weeks to fully mature and then reap your harvest.
It’s assumed that Rob Ford Kush was created somewhere in Canada, likely Toronto, but no one really knows for sure where this interesting bud originated. She may be hard to find in some parts of the United States, but if you’re able to get your hands on some, keep a bit in your stash for the times when you need a super mellow evening.
