The term “mob boss” probably conjures images of Marlon Brando’s iconic portrayal of Vito Corleone in the Godfather, or maybe of real-life kingpins such as Al Capone or Carlo Gambino. Whoever first comes to mind, after one hit of this Sativa dominant hybrid, this strain will be letting you know who is the boss.
About the Plant
Debuted in 2009 by Grindhouse Medical Seeds, Mob Boss is the brilliant cross of Sativa-dominant Tang Tang and heavy-hitting hybrid Chemdawg. Generally, a 60% Sativa / 40% Indica mix, this potent strain boasts a THC content of 22.8%.
Plants of Mob Boss grow up to four feet in height and flower between 9 and 11 weeks. Buds are small to medium-sized and fluffy and tend to stand out due to the heavy crystallization coating on the buds.
The aroma of this hybrid is delightfully floral, with undertones of citrus and herbs. When burned, the citrus expands into a delicious lemon flavor and might have a light skunk smell.
The smoke is bursting with flavor, citrusy sweet with spicy and woody notes. Although very tasty, the smoke may come off as harsh for some users.
Effects of Mob Boss
There are two phenotypes of Mob Boss that each has their own effects.
The most common phenotype supplies a quick-hitting uplifted and euphoric cerebral high, that leaves you clear-headed and focused. You will also experience a creative energetic boost, that may make you feel more talkative.
The second phenotype supplies a much stronger cerebral buzz that can leave you feeling surprised at its potency and will give a more intense sense of euphoria.
Both will provide a fantastic cerebral experience that then tapers off into a relaxing body buzz.
Mob Boss is a strain rich in medicinal uses. The uplift in mood it creates is good for treating stress and depression. Focus brought on by the cerebral high can be helpful to those with attention deficit disorders such as ADD and ADHD.
The mix of head buzz and body relaxation brings effective pain relief and is especially helpful with muscle tension. Mob Boss is also extremely efficient as both an anti-nausea and appetite stimulant, which can be helpful to those with a variety of conditions.
Possible Side Effects
The common dry mouth or dry eyes may occur, and due to the potency of this strain, there is a possibility of headache, dizziness or paranoia.
Mob Boss is probably best recommended as a late afternoon or early evening strain. Depending on the phenotype, this strain is good for simple chores or tasks, walks or before social gatherings. Depending on how much is consumed, this may not be the best strain for accomplishing difficult tasks.
New or inexperienced users, should be cautious with Mob Boss due to its high potency. Even more experienced cannabis users might want to start slow with this one!
