Mob Boss Strain

One fun fact about cannabis, in general, is that their names can be very interesting. Some have names inspired by their parent strains while others tend to be unique and are definitely way cooler.

Let us take this one particular strain called the Mob Boss as an example. The “Mob” and “Boss” combination is clearly a smart one. After hearing this name, one could easily think of a cannabis variety that is highly potent with a strong cerebral or physical high.

Indeed, this strain has lived up to its seemingly tough name. It is known to be highly potent with overwhelming effects. In fact, this is one of those strains that beginners should not be messing around with, without the necessary precautions.

To give you a clearer picture of this strain’s most notable attributes, check out the following information below.

The Mob Boss is a hybrid strain that resulted from crossing Chemdawg and Tang Tang. It was first developed in 2009 by the Grindhouse Medical Seeds in California.

The strain has two different phenotypes which may vary in their potency and effects. However, Mob Boss, in general, is popularly known for its strong potency and high levels of resin production.

      Cultivating the Mob Boss indoor should offer a shorter flowering time, especially when using the Sea of Green (SOG) method. Due to the usual limitations of growing space, it would be a good idea to top early and keep the plant height to around 4 feet.

      For growers who are fortunate to have an outdoor area, a Mediterranean climate with temperature in the range of 70 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimal environment for this strain to grow.

      After successfully cultivating, growers should cure the harvested buds properly to preserve its potency and flavor. The curing process lasts around 7 days with the buds hanging upside down. Be sure to maintain a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity to 50% RH for best results.

      After the curing process, the buds can now be placed inside wide-mouthed jars.

      Flowering Time


      Indoor, the flowering time of the Mob Boss strains between 60 to 75 days with an expected yield of 24 ounces per square meter.


      Outdoor, the Mob Boss should be ready for harvest by the first or second week of October with an estimated yield of 28 ounces per plant.

        1. Just About To Harvest My Mob Boss. Beautiful Purples And Chocolate Browns In Late Bud When Paired With An Old School High Uv Led From Mars Hydro. Grown In Strawberry Fields Soil, 7 Gallon, Seems To Want More P And K At The End Of A Long Cycle. Purple Pin Stripes On The Stems Unless Your Light Has No UV. Light Citrus Aroma And Frosty Bud Leaves. Denser Buds If You Let Them Grow In A Nylon Chinese Finger Trap………. Growth Under Pressure Yields Diamonds.

        2. We found 3 seeds in a bag of Mob boss. Its very close to harvest. Pot grown/Outdoor. When the plant was reaching over my tomatoes; I started putting her in my garage from 7:30pm – 9am with windows blocked and kept a fan on it. Trichromes and around 60% Milky and 40%a mber but the buds don’t seem fully formed so to speak, they are smelling amazing but still seem hairy. This is my first grow to harvest.
