A heavy indica-dominant hybrid popular among marijuana users, Bubba Kush was bred with OG Kush and unknown plant that came to be known as ‘Bubba’. It is a classic indica with a powerful sedative high that leaves the user relaxed but active. Its THC content is high ranging from 15 to 22 percent. Another powerful strain is a Sativa-dominant Gorilla Glue 4 that contains a similar THC content but delivers completely different effects.
Bubba Kush features small sized buds with dense structure and dark green leaves. The resinous strain has coating of white trichomes over colourful flowers. The flowers bear an aroma of chocolate or coffee with slight fruitiness. It smells more spicy and hashy when burnt. The exhaled smoke tastes peppery with some sweetness. This is quite pungent and not ideal for those who are keen towards discretion.
Not expected from an Indica-dominant strain, Bubba Kush strain offers a high starting with disoriented sensation in the head. This gives way to a body melt that grows intense as the high goes deep. Though not energized, users can remain functional and keep focus. A slow-breathing relaxed feeling is experienced with a sense of physical comfort. It does not cause couch-lock.
Bubba Kush delivers both physical and mental medicinal effects. It is known to provide relief from depression and anxiety along with a soothing sensation for chronic pain and muscle aches. When taken in large doses, it can even treat insomnia and sleep-related problems. A lot of users report appetite boost as a side effect. Suitable for lazy daytime or nightime use, the strain’s stimulation of mind as well as body make it ideal for activities that require both.
This strain is easy to grow and great for those who are new to the world of cannabis cultivation. Like most other indica varieties, Bubba Kush is bushy and stocky and can be grown indoors as well as outdoors. As it is naturally resistant to molds and pests, it gives an advantage when grown outdoors. However, one should ensure it gets consistent sunlight and ideal temperature. It takes 8-9 weeks to flower and is ready for harvest in October. While the yield is low, the quality of flower is really high. Dense buds are covered by sticky trichomes, making them ideal for production of concentrates and for direct sale.
Growers of Bubba Kush should carefully cure the buds by hanging them upside down for a week in a completely balanced room with temperature and moisture. The buds should then be sealed in wide-mouth jars. Enjoying an instant recognition and a healthy fan base, Bubba Kush is a popular name in the U.S. cannabis market. The solid indica genetics and potency of the strain have resulted in many crossbreeds giving strains like Bubba’s Gift, Blackberry Kush and Madness. More of a nighttime strain, the relaxing high and aromatic smoke is definitely a great way to unwind after a work day.
