In remembering and paying tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on January 15, some may turn to related cannabis strain for comfort.
King's Kush, an indica combo of OG Kush and Grape, accordng to Leafly, "produces gradual yet powerful effects that will make you feel relaxed and euphoric. This strain features a flavor profile that is tangy with grape and undertones of lavender. Medical marijuana patients choose King’s Kush to relieve symptoms associated with insomnia. Growers say this strain comes in purple and blue nugs that are covered in trichomes."
Little is known about MLK's marijuana use, whether he did or didn't.
Another option is Double Dream, a sativa-dominant Blue Dream x Dream Star cross that's both "soothing and mentally invigorating. Its dreamy, euphoric buzz is anchored by a deep, physical relaxation that mutes pain, anxiety, stress and inflammation. Patients also turn to this uplifting strain for daytime release from PTSD, headaches and nausea."
Other Blue Dream strains will also suffice on MLK Day.
Little is known about King's marijuana use, whether he did or didn't. "Martin Luther King Jr. never spoke publicly about cannabis, but his life and works provide important context for cannabis legalization and the fight against the 'New Jim Crow' of the War on Drugs," Cannabis Now noted in 2020.
