Bubba Kush Strain
Bubba Kush Strain is a thick Indica hybrid that experiences very wide popularity. The strain’s original L.A. producer declares that while one origin was an OG Kush plant, the other was an unnamed Northern Lights phenotype brought behind from Mardi Gras in New Orleans; this unnamed mother strain affectionately came to be known as “Bubba,” and has since been forgotten. Bubba Kush is a typical Indica with a solid medication high that leaves users relaxed but still functional. It has a typically high THC content, varying from 15% to 22%.
Bubba Kush has tiny to medium-sized buds that have the thick bud structure characteristic of Indica types. The leaves are dark green and can sometimes show shades of purple, the effect of anthocyanin pigments having been initiated by cold temperatures during the growing process. This is a very resinous strain — a layer of white trichomes covers the colorful leaves, and are still visible on the inside when buds are broken open.
The flowers have a dark fragrance of coffee or cocoa, with some slight fruitiness beneath. When consumed, Bubba Kush breathes more hashy and spicy, as might be expected of a Kush, with smoke that is fairly harsh and cough-inducing. Prominently, this is one strain whose purple flowers do not rise in a grape-like flavor: the pigments that define Bubba Kush’s color do not change character. The flavor is often dank, with amazing sweetness and a peppery kick in the exhale. This is also an unusually pungent strain — users bothered about discretion should plan respectively.
Surprisingly for such an indica-heavy strain, Bubba Kush’s high starts with a warped, confused feeling in the head. This fogginess though gives away to a greater expected body melt that intensifies as the high wears on. Although not significantly energized, smokers can support mental focus and converse or perform tasks as needed. Frequently users will feel heavy, slow-breathing relaxation and a palpable sense of physical comfort. Couchlock is uncommon, leaving users functional and alert. Bubba Kush Strain has medicinal benefits that are mental as well as physical — it can give amazing relief from anxiety and depression in addition to calming chronic, difficult-seated pains, and pains. In general sufficient doses, it can serve as a treatment for insomnia as well. Many users report enhanced taste as a common side effect. Well-suited to nighttime or lazy daytime convenience, Bubba Kush’s stimulation of both body and mind makes it great for movements that involve both — including, but not limited to, exercise and sex.
Bubba is relatively simple to grow and is advised for newcomers to cannabis cultivation. Stocky and bushy like most different indicia characters, its plants can be grown indoors, outside, or in a greenhouse. Outside, the strain has the benefit of being naturally resistant to molds and other pests, but growers will have to ensure consistent sunlight and a constant daytime temperature between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Bubba Kush grows fine inside in soil but may have a higher yield if grown in hydroponic solution. The strain flowers within 8 and 9 weeks when raised inside and is set for harvest outdoors in early October.
The compact buds are coated in sticky trichomes, making them valuable for curing and direct sale as well as for the production of hash and other concentrates. Producers should be assured to accurately cure the mature buds by hanging them upside down for about a week in a room that maintains 50% humidity and a consistent temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and then sealing the dried buds in wide-mouthed jars in a room with a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 60-65% humidity.
With healthy fan support and instant name recognition, Bubba Kush is a staple of the U.S. cannabis market. Its power and solid Indica genetics have crossbred into a slew of minor strains like Blackberry Kush, Bubba’s Gift, and Madness. Surely more of a nighttime strain, this aromatic smoke and relaxing high can be a great way to relax after a long day.
Exceptionally thick flowers varying from dark black and purple to green depending on the “cut” of this strain. Remaining consistent, Bubba produces Kush-style cannabis flowers tending from golf balls to swollen hearts in shape.
The smell of Bubba Kush is one of those different fragrances you will never forget. It often joins on an acrid ammonia scent, but always emits deep earthy notes. From hints of coffee to infected feet, Bubba Kush hits the nose a bit differently for everyone.
Depending on the pheno you may get chocolate notes to ammonia notes, but although of the smoke being thick and heavy. Tastes vary on the earthy and bodily spectrum and well-grown Bubba should give character through water and the end of the bowl.
Gradually calming results, with the Katsu, cut being a bit less sleep-inducing although still a very heavy body high.
Produces well in all mediums but veges very slowly.
