Bubba Kush is a renowned indica strain that has been around for decades, and is believed to have originated from mountainous areas or Los Angeles, California. It is a cross between OG Kush and Northern Lights and has classic indica-like characteristics, such as dense and thick flowers that range in color from green to deep purple. The buds are also covered in white trichomes, making them quite sticky. The aroma of Bubba Kush is primarily earthy with sweet and floral undertones, and depending on the batch, some users report subtle notes of chocolate and gas. The smoke is thick and heavy, and may irritate the throat.
Bubba Kush is a 70-80% indica strain and provides users with an intense, heavy, and sedating high. It has an average THC content of 20%, although it can range from 15-29%. Upon consumption, the effects are felt first in the head and then gradually spread throughout the body, relaxing the muscles and inducing a euphoric state of mind. Additionally, users may experience increased appetite and drowsiness. Due to its powerful sedative effects, this strain is best enjoyed in the evening and is suitable for activities that don’t require much effort, such as watching TV or movies.
Bubba Kush can be beneficial for medical patients due to its sedating effects. It is often used to treat chronic stress, chronic and acute pain, insomnia, depression, and mild to moderate headaches. The most common side effects are dry mouth and dry eyes.
