Mob Boss OG Strain

Mob Boss Strain (OG) Overview

Mob Boss strain was created by Grindhouse Medical Seeds and is bred from two incredibly potent and well-known strains: Chemdawg D and Tang Tang. This beautiful strain is known for its extremely dense and resinous medium-sized buds. These colorful buds are often covered in bright orange pistils and a lot of sparkling, silver trichomes. Mob Boss strain is a hybrid that leans slightly to the Sativa side and typically has 15-20% THC content. This, alongside its sweet taste, makes it a highly sought after boutique strain from California and is definitely one for the cannabis connoisseur. Mob Boss contains a real punch, as the name may suggest. This strain is definitely not for newcomers. If you do find yourself feeling slightly overwhelmed, then here’s a guide to feeling less high:

  • Take a cold shower (this makes you feel almost instantly better)
  • Drink a coffee (this will help your brain concentrate)
  • Lie down on your own for a while, if you feel a little sick, stand up again
  • Just breathe normally, and focus on your breathing if possible

After this, you will feel a lot better.

Mob Boss Strain - Indica or Sativa?

 Although some phenotypes are definitely perfectly 50/50 balanced, Mob Boss strain is an ever-so-slightly Sativa-dominant hybrid. This makes it even more desirable, as balanced hybrids are probably the most popular types of marijuana strain in the 21st century. In the past, it was more heavy indicas or heavy sativas. However, in more recent times, stoners have become acclimated to being able to choose their highs. This has led to a rise in the balanced hybrids. Mob Boss was created in California and is a boutique strain both in California and surrounding areas. You’ll be hard-pressed to find this strain outside of North America, and if you do, you’ll be paying a high price.


Boss OG (aka Mob Boss) Genetics

As mentioned previously, Mob Strain was first created by Grindhouse Medical Seeds. These guys are a company out in California, with a reputation for creating some of the dankest strains on the market. Diesel boss, or Mob Boss as it’s more commonly known, is no exception. Just take a look at the two strains which were crossed to create it:

  • Chemdawg D
  • Tang Tang

Both of these strains are dank as hell already, so mix them together and what do you get? A dankenstein strain.


Mob Boss OG THC percentage

The average hybrid contains around 13% THC. Mob Boss Strain has a slightly higher THC percentage, testing at around 14.5% on average. However, some phenotypes or those grows which have been properly set up, can contain a whopping 21% THC content. This is a huge difference, and could potentially lead to some people getting overly stoned.


Mob Boss Prices

Mob Boss’ seeds aren’t available from the original breeder. This means that the price of this strain may be slightly higher than you may expect. It’s also a boutique strain, which raises its value even more. In most places of the world, the average price for a gram of Mob Boss is about $15. You may pay a little more or a little less, depending on the availability of the strain.


Mob Boss Taste

Mob Boss has a sweet, floral, and herbal aroma and flavors with slight hints of citrus. The strain definitely has some nice sweet and sour flavors, but the smoke itself can be slightly harsh, so be ready to cough a bit. It can be enjoyed in a bong, or wrapped up into a blunt, depending on what you prefer. It could also be enjoyed ground up in a grinder and stuck inside a flower vaporizer, which is the most recommended method of smoking this strain.


Boss OG Oil, Wax, Shatter, Edibles, etc.

You can make any strain you like into concentrates. The problem is that Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is dangerous to make in the comfort of your own home. It’s highly recommended that you don’t try this, as some people have even burnt their houses down in the effort. If you do decide to go through with it, then the Boss OG strain is a great choice, as it has a decent flavor and a high THC potency.

 You can also make any strain into edibles. There are two methods of making edibles:

  • Using already vaped bud and mixing it with a fat or an oil
  • Decarboxylating your own cannabis flower and mixing it with a fat or an oil

You have to decarboxylate raw weed, otherwise, when you make it into an edible, most of the THCA will remain as THCA, and not be converted to THC. You also have to mix it with a fat or oil, as it’s not water-soluble. Follow these two rules, and you’ll have a pretty potent marijuana edible to contend with.

 Mob Boss Negative Effects 


Depression Dry mouth


Lack of appetite Anxious


Stress Headaches


Pain Paranoid


Fatigue Sleepy


This balanced hybrid is a perfect treat for those who are suffering from depression. The complimenting combination of this strain means that you get both a warm Indica hug and a shot of Sativa cerebral energy. When combined, these two feelings make a good treatment for depression. However, this isn’t a catch-all and won’t work for everybody. It is possible you may feel a little bit sleepy or develop a small headache after prolonged use of this strain. Just ensure you drink plenty of water when smoking.

Mob Boss Flowering Time

Boss OG’s flowering time is about 9 weeks, which is a reasonably quick grow time.


Mob Boss Growing Tips

This strain can grow pretty high, but if you train the plant perfectly well by bending and pruning, then it shouldn’t grow too massive. Also, you don’t really need to trim Boss OG strain, as the leaf to bud ratio is pretty good. You should cure this bud for a decent length of time, as it’s pretty sticky after harvesting.


Mob Boss Strain Seeds

The seeds aren’t available online from the original grower, but there are a few companies that offer this strain. However, whether the seeds are real or not is up for debate.


Mob Boss Strain Yield

The yield of this strain is about 36 grams per square foot. This is a pretty decent yield.

What is the Mob Boss/Boss OG strain?

Overall Mob Boss is a sweet-tasting, nicely balanced hybrid with beautiful buds and uplifting highs. Its ability to boost morale and mood makes it a perfect strain for those who are suffering from conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. As it’s not too strong, you’ll find that this can help for moderate to heavy stoners alike. Even novices may benefit from this strain in lower doses. It’s a perfect cross between two famous strains, but the seeds are quite hard to find.

  • 50/50 balanced hybrid
  • Great for depression and stress
  • The sweet smell and good taste
  • Nice yield, easy to grow, but seeds are hard to find
  • Should be enjoyed inside a flower vaporizer
  • Can easily make edibles from this strain
