Bubba Kush is an American strain that has become known for its alleged medicinal properties. Named after its creator, Bubba brings therapeutic effects and rich flavors.
Heritage & Genetics: The heritage of this indica hybrid is somewhat of a mystery. Since the cross-pollination of an OG Kush and an unknown New Orleans indica in 1996, this Kush has gone by the name ‘Bubba’, after its breeder. Not much else is known about the hazy past of this now popular strain.
Flavor & Aroma: The aroma and flavor of Bubba Kush is best described as a combination of coffee and dark chocolate with a nutty undertone. It also carries the typical, slightly hashish-like sweet, earthy pine forest palette familiar in the Kush genetics.
Effect: Bubba Kush’s effects are typical of an almost 100% indica. Muscle relaxing sensations take over the body causing the eyes to droop. Meanwhile, thoughts slow and a sleepiness takes hold. Consumers often describe these deeply calming effects as therapeutic. Bubba Kush’s medium-high THC level of 18% should prevent this heavy body-stoned from becoming overwhelming. Although the less experienced may prefer something slightly lighter.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Bubba Kush grows well in any environment but gives the best result when using hydroponics indoors. Screen- and Sea of Green methods also work well with this strain. Bubba Kush is very resistant to molds and pests, so it’s an ideal strain for beginners. Just watch out for extreme temperature fluctuations, since the plant is susceptible to heat stress.
