What is Mob Boss Strain?
Mob Boss is a balanced hybrid marijuana strain that leans slightly to the Sativa side even though the Indica and Sativa ratio is 50/50. The strain is famous for its highly dense and resinous medium-sized buds and uplifting highs. The THC content of this strain can range between 15-21% depending on its phenotypes. Just like its name, the strain packs a heavy punch.
Background and Lineage
Mob Boss strain was developed by Grindhouse Medical Seeds in 2009. Grindhouse is a collection of growers who produce high-quality medical marijuana strains at a very reasonable price for the California Medical Community. Mob Boss is a cross between two potent strains Chemdawg D and Tang Tang. Hence it got its powerful sedative effects and cerebral highs from its parents.
Types of High
You can expect it to have a strong head high since it is a Sativa-dominant strain. Depending on the phenotype of the strain, this effect will vary. While some could give a much lighter buzz, a high-quality Mob Boss strain can be overwhelmingly strong.
Mob Boss is known to get hold of users quickly. It begins with a head buzz accompanied by an intensification of the senses. It can cause euphoria and happiness and heighten the user’s senses that result in visual distortions and time dilation.
The head high of the Mob Boss can help you think clearly and get your creative juices flowing when consumed in moderation.
On the other hand, the physical high of the Mob Boss can make you feel relaxed but not entirely strong enough to lock you on the couch.
Mob Boss is recommended for afternoon or evening use because of its effects.
Mob Boss is one of the best medical cannabis strains for treating:
- Muscle pain
- Digestive issues
The strain can elevate confidence and mood. The strain’s soothing properties relax the body, causing a mental high to subside, which helps to reduce stress and anxiety. Indirectly, this could offer relief from PTSD and even PMS.
People who have attention deficit disorders may also benefit from Mob Boss strain, allowing them to sustain focus.
It can also act as an appetite stimulant. After the effects of the strain subside, consumers are likely to feel hungry.
In large enough doses, it is effective in treating insomnia.
Alternatively, this strain’s strong Indica effects can relieve mild to moderate aches and pains.
Considering this strain is highly potent, the adverse effects of the Mob Boss strain are very minimum. Using more than one can tolerate may cause adverse reactions.
Like most cannabis strains, it can cause a feeling of cottonmouth and dry eyes when smoking this strain. These are easily manageable with a bit of planning and preparation. Drink plenty of fluid before, during, and after consumption to keep yourself hydrated. Eye drops from your local pharmacy or drugstore can help you with dry or red eyes.
It is essential to know that the side effects of marijuana can vary between people. If you are taking any cannabis strain for the first time, take it in a smaller dose and only increase the dosage if it seems appropriate. You should always know your limit and stick to it at all times.
Growing Mob Boss Strain
Mob Boss strain can be grown either indoor or outdoor. However, it does need some level of experience to cultivate successfully.
A few different companies sell packaged seeds of Mob Boss. You can also use clippings from a healthy, mature plant and grow it as a clone. The plant is generally very strong and highly resistant to mold and can withstand lower temperatures. The plant can grow pretty tall, but if you train it correctly by bending and pruning, it shouldn’t grow too high.
Growing this strain indoors will allow you to completely control the environment, including temperature, light, CO2 levels, and humidity, without worrying about the weather.
For a decent yield (up to 450 grams of dry buds per square meter) and quality, it requires no more than 400 HPS watts of light. However, to achieve the best result, use 600/1000 watt HPS light systems, organic fertilizing in a hydroponic setting.
Mob Bosses plants boom after the first week of flowering and can grow up to 70 inches. Indoors, the flowering time of the Mob Boss strains is between 8 to 9 weeks. In terms of yield, you can expect a return of approximately 24 ounces per square meter.
Mob Boss strain strives in a Mediterranean climate with temperatures in the range of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the optimal environment for this strain to grow.
Mob Boss should be ready to harvest in early October in the outdoor grow, with an estimated yield of about 28 ounces per plant.
After successful cultivation, you will need to cure the harvested buds properly to preserve their potency and flavor. The curing process lasts around seven days, with the buds hanging upside down. Ensure that you maintain a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity to 50% RH for best results.
Store the buds inside wide-mouthed jars after the curing process.
