Bubba Kush is an indica strain that has gained notoriety in the US and beyond for its heavy tranquilizing effects. Sweet hashish flavors with subtle notes of chocolate and coffee come through on the exhale, delighting the palate as powerful relaxation takes over. From head to toe, muscles ease with heaviness as dreamy euphoria blankets the mind, crushing stress while bringing happy moods. Bubba Kush exhibits a distinctive, bulky bud structure with hues that range from forest green to pale purple.
Bubba’s stocky plant stature and bulky bud structure suggest Afghani descent, but its genetic origins aren’t certain. The strain’s original L.A. breeder claims that while one parent was an OG Kush plant; the other was an unnamed Northern Lights phenotype. This unnamed mother strain affectionately came to be known as “Bubba”.
Bubba Kush Aroma, Flavor and Appearance
Bubba Kush possesses a sweet, pungent and grounding aroma, often reminding consumers subtly of chocolate and coffee. Its flavor is like hashish, earthy and nutty in taste, yet with a sweet side that all ties together to send your taste buds on a whirlwind ride of pleasure.
The appearance of Bubba Kush weed steers away from the typical bud look, but is still very reminiscent of usual well-grown cannabis, with frosty green and purple buds, that have small amber/orange colored hairs sticking out from in between. The water leaves are often green and deep purple in color as well. Bubba Kush has a presence that is vivid and bright, exciting patients, stoners, 420-lovers and cannaisseurs all over the world with its aesthetics that are remarkably reminiscent of classic marijuana, with a simple, but enticing twist.
Bubba Kush Effects
The effects of Bubba Kush are unique to indica strains, because enjoyers typically feel couch-locked and extreme body melting bliss with this powerfully rich strain. This is partially what makes Bubba Kush such an ideal candidate for those who are suffering with insomnia.
Unusually for such an indica-heavy strain, Bubba Kush’s high 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 Benefits of Bubba Kush
Mental disorders can gain ample relief from Bubba Kush weed, as this calming and relaxing strain seems to be stunningly capable of healing any stress, anxiety, depression or paranoia one may be experiencing. If you are dealing with a mental disorder, consuming a balanced and “just-right” quantity of Bubba Kush cannabis is ideal, for overdoing it can lead to a worsening in symptoms (as with any weed strain).
Additionally, BK is a top-notch selection for those who are suffering from serious illnesses such as cancer and HIV/AIDs, not because of a high CBD content, but rather because this mighty indica is astounding at aiding in the relief of pain, nausea, or other symptoms that are often attached to these serious illnesses.
Bubba Kush won’t cure an illness from the inside out, but it certainly makes it easier to handle the everyday challenges and pains that are attached with a serious medical condition. If you are dealing with something that is more serious, you will want to up your dose of Bubba Kush and go for the consumption of an amount that is above average. Edibles, concentrates, candies and live resins, are all methods of consuming marijuana that are typically more potent than just your average ganja in a bowl.
Most of all, Bubba Kush is known for its mind-blowing capacity to help those who have trouble sleeping (insomnia), lack of appetite and even those fighting eating disorders. If you are experiencing one of the ailments listed above, just as those handling a more serious illness, a larger than average dose would be more effective at aiding and assisting any discomforts you might be going through.
Possible Side Effects of Bubba Kush
When consumed too early in the day or too large of an amount, Bubba Kush can make its consumer become especially sleepy, since of course this potent indica is often used as a sedative for those dealing with insomnia. Due to this aspect, it is best to not use Bubba Kush as your go-to day time strain, and rather save it for once you’re complete with taking care of business, otherwise you might find yourself nodding away while important things are going on.
Aside from sleepiness being a result of Bubba Kush, those dealing with stress, anxiety, depression and other mental conditions who are consuming BK to help their symptoms should be cautious. As with any weed strain, over consuming cannabis can cause a heightening in paranoia, anxiousness and stress, especially in the physical sense, and even into the mental realm. It is vital that if you are intaking medical marijuana for mental conditions, be sure to keep awareness of your limits and respect those levels, otherwise you could end up finding yourself in a situation that is anything but fun and relaxing.
