The Top Marijuana Strains to Get You Through the Trump Presidency

For those who may not support President Donald Trump’s rhetoric or proposed policies, the next four years may be a bit of a challenge. Here are some marijuana strains to help get through these turbulent times.

Island sweet skunk.

Donald Trump walks into the oval office on a proverbial incline; his approval rating is already the lowest in the history of modern minted presidential leaders. Per Vanity Fair, these numbers were already low on Election Day (38 percent of citizens approved of him). And, while he saw a bit of a post-election surge, the numbers began to slip again as time went on:

Presently, around 40 percent of the nation has confidence in his ability to lead us. For comparison’s sake, President Obama leaves the White House with an approval rating of 61 percent

In many ways, the President-elect’s numbers are not that surprising: the popular vote went to Hilary Clinton and by a large margin, literally conveying that Trump wasn’t as popular as his counterpart. And also Donald Trump is, well, Donald Trump.

Still, whether or not you genuinely believe Trump will make a decent president, you always have pot to get you through.

Here are the top strains to get you through the Trump presidency:

Island Sweet Skunk:

This strain provides an upbeat high and a good, mellow body buzz. The THC level is moderate and conducive to a happy, hopeful mood no matter where you stand politically. It’s been used to treat depression, stress, and anxiety. It helps with focus and creativity, too.

Cannatonic:

THC may get all the girls when it comes to a swinging good time, but CBD isn’t some shabby cannabinoid destined forever to play second fiddle: it’s ideal for treating pain – both physical and emotional. The Cannatonic stain is rich in CBD, with a percent that teeters between six and seventeen. The THC is low, around five. The result is a relaxing experience that provides a numbing sensation over various parts of the body – including any bicep with a Hilary Clinton tattoo. At least, hopefully.

Clockwork Orange:

For some, this strain is fitting – the election and the movie for which this strain was named were both sort of weird. But, for anyone looking to relieve stress (particularly chronic stress) this is a good choice.

Like Cannatonic, it provides a numbing effect and is often used by people who have aches and sore muscles. Of note, it’s not recommended for anyone with a heart condition.

Rosetta Stone:

This strain allows users to feel warm, safe, and tranquil – something that helps when dealing with politicians of any kind. It rarely causes paranoia and is commonly used by people who suffer from anxiety disorders. Plus, it’s known for making you sociable, helping to remove the awkwardness of dealing with your uncle who swears that the environment isn’t actually a real thing.

Pot of Gold:

If you want to sleep through the presidency, consider this strain. Known for helping insomniacs finally get some shut eye, it’s also used to manage chronic pain.

Maple Leaf Indica:

This strain is a pure indica and only recommended for night-time or evening use. It offers a powerful body high that might be too much, too soon for the novice smoker: in short, if you have no tolerance, this will knock you out. For others, this strain offers a surge of creativity and cerebral stimulation before it makes you tired and ready for bed. It’s good for stress, anxiety, and nausea.

The White Russian:

Insert Putin jokes here! This strain is quite potent (it’s a cross between AK-47 and White Widow) and produces a very heavy head high. The THC level hovers in the low to mid-twenties and makes the user feel energized, motivated, and ready to take on the world.

Going forward:

As we’ve widely discussed, the changing of the guard may result in marijuana laws changing too – Trump is, at best, wishy washy on legalization, but other potential members of his cabinet are firmly anti-cannabis. While the slug-like speed at which the government moves is usually frustrating, in regards to the dismantling of marijuana reform it’s beneficial: right now, we’re making progress so celebrate! And smoke any of the above strains and any others you love.

Smoke them for the next four years.

Trump Removes Marijuana Opposition from White House Website Immediately After Taking Office

Immediately after taking office yesterday President Donald Trump’s Administration removed a page on the White House’s website declaring opposition to legalizing marijuana and other drugs.

Prior to Trump taking office yesterday, there was a page on the White House’s website – under the section for the Office of National Drug Control Policy – titled “Marijuana”. The page stated that the president “steadfastly opposes legalization of marijuana and other drugs because legalization would increase the availability and use of illicit drugs, and poise significant health and safety risks to all Americans, particularly young people”.

Immediately after Trump took office yesterday, the page was promptly removed from the White House’s website. When you go to the link for the page, it says “Sorry, the page you’re looking for can’t be found.”

Although this may be a simple case of the new administration pressing the reset button, it’s worth noting that there are plenty of other pages on the site that remain. As such, it could be an indication that Trump will take a different approach to marijuana; potentially one that keeps the federal government out of the picture, allowing states to decide.

At this point it’s simply unknown, however, what exactly Trump will do.

We will keep you updated.

In Final Day of Office, President Obama Grants 330 More Commutations

In his final day in office, President Obama granted 330 more commutations, the most in a single day in U.S. history.

The move – which comes just two days after the last batch of clemency – brings the total number of commutations granted by President Obama to 1715; this is well more than the past 12 presidents combined. Included in this commutations were 568 people who were serving life sentences; this means they would have died in prison if not for Obama.

The vast majority of the commuted charges were for drug-related offenses.

For comparison sake, former President George W. Bush granted just 11 commutations, whereas Bill Clinton granted 61
