As Pres. Obama declines to acknowledge medical marijuana’s medicinal benefits, and the NDIA try and save face over MPP’s “marijuana, safer than alcohol” campaign. Dr. Sanjay Gupta has been given the ultimate 420 salute…his own marijuana strain, named in his honor. Joining the ranks of the illustrious, Sanjay Gupta Kush will go down in the archives of famous marijuana names next to Obama OG and Connie Chung.
“Dr. Gupta’s recent reporting on marijuana puts him at the forefront of the medical cannabis movement, and we thought what better way to honor his efforts than by giving him his own strength. We’d like to ensure he remains part of the annals of cannabis culture, and now he will,” claims Jeff Kless, the managing owner of Helping Hands Herbals Dispensary in Boulder, Colorado.
According to the dispensary owner, Gupta Kush is another chronic variation – in a long line of modified Indica genetics – with its roots deep in the Hindu Kush Mountains of South East Asia. This region is famous in the cannabis cultivation world, hallowed ground for breeders. Birthplace to some of marijuana folklore’s most sought after heirloom genetics. With its characteristically deep green hue obscured beneath a sticky layer of chronic trichomes, a pungent, hash-like hit of rich Indica flavor awaits. Make sure you’ve cleared your calendar and have nothing planned for the next few hours, as the elevated onset hits you between the eyes instantaneously… with an enduring, long-lasting effect.

Proud of their strain selection, Kless noted that
“Considering this new strain is grown organically in Boulder, which has a strong marijuana culture and is ranked the healthiest place in America, we think it’s a great fit. Choosing one [marijuana strain] for those who suffer from debilitating medical conditions such as cancer, MS, severe pain, nausea, anxiety, wasting, and are in need of physical and mental recovery without the use of pharmaceuticals.”
Currently, Sanjay’s newest namesake can only be purchased at Colorado’s Helping Hands Herbals in Boulder, Colorado.
Thanks for being blunt Dr. Gupta… And speaking the truth!
