About Bubba Kush
Bubba Kush is a heavy indica hybrid that enjoys very wide popularity. The strain’s original L.A. breeder claims that one parent was an OG Kush plant. However, the other was an unnamed Northern Lights phenotype brought back from Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Not withstanding, this unnamed mother strain affectionately came to be known as “Bubba,” and has since been lost. Bubba Kush is a classic indica with a solid sedative high that leaves users relaxed but still functional. It has a typically high THC content, ranging from 15% to 22%.
Structure of Bubba Kush
Bubba Kush has small to medium sized buds that have the dense bud structure characteristic of indica varieties. The leaves are dark green and can sometimes show shades of purple. Cold temperatures activate anthocyanin pigments during the growing process.
The flowers have a vague aroma of coffee or cocoa, with some slight fruitiness beneath. When burnt, Bubba Kush smells more hashy and spicy, as might be expected of a Kush. The smoke is fairly harsh and cough-inducing. Notably, this is one strain whose purple flowers do not result in a grape-like taste. Consequently, the pigments that determine Bubba Kush’s color do not affect flavor. The taste is mostly dank, with some sweetness and a peppery kick in the exhale. This is also a particularly pungent strain. Users are concerned about discretion should plan accordingly.
Effects of this cannabis
Unusually for such an indica-heavy strain, Bubba Kush has a high which begins with a warped, disoriented sensation in the head. This fogginess, however, gives way to a more expected body melt that intensifies as the high wears on. Although not necessarily energized, smokers can maintain mental focus and converse or perform tasks as needed. Mostly, users will experience heavy, slow-breathing relaxation and a palpable sense of physical comfort. Couchlock is uncommon, leaving users functional and alert.
Medical Uses of Bubba Kush
Bubba Kush’s medical uses are mental as well as physical — it can provide some relief from anxiety and depression in addition to soothing chronic, deep-seated aches and pains. In large enough doses, it can serve as treatment for insomnia as well. Many users describe increased appetite as a common side effect. Well-suited to nighttime or lazy daytime use. Bubba Kush stimulates both body and mind making it great for activities that involve both. Good examples are exercise and sex.
