Presidential OG

Sometimes called Presidential Kush, this indica variety will transport you right to the Oval Office. The cross of OG Kush and Bubble Gum has strong pine notes that will fit right in at any 4th of July campout.

Liberty Haze

Get as high as Lady Liberty with this cross of G13 and Chemdawg 91. A High Times Cannabis Cup winner, Liberty Haze offers electric green buds and a tangy lime zest aroma.


Most people would assume Americano was named after the popular coffee drink. But legend has it that Canadian breeders gave the Northern Lights and Skunk its name after seeing an influx of American weed tourists. This strain does the exact opposite of its caffeinated cousin—expect sedative, chill effects.

Obama Kush

Barack Obama is the epitome of cool and seemingly the first US president to admit he inhaled the green—of course he’d get a weed strain named after him. Obama Kush is a cross of Afghani and OG Kush, known for its euphoric, full-body buzz.

Danky Doodle

Danky Doodle channels one of the most iconic Americana characters, but the Big Bud phenotype is actually Dutch in origin. The breeders originally called the variety Double D but changed it so as not to be confused with Double Dutch.

Stormy Daniels

While not inherently patriotic, many view Stormy Daniels as somewhat of an American hero thanks to her role in the Trump hush money trial. The high-CBD strain is believed to be a cross of Cherry Blossom and Trump T1 and is known for its ultra-relaxing effects.

USA-themed clothes and merch hit a fever pitch this time of year, so why not seek the same from weed shops? If you’re seeking to infuse your 4th of July, patriotic pot strains serve Star Spangled Banner to the highest degree.
