The lowdown on Bubba Kush
When it comes to essential indica strains, Bubba Kush is undoubtedly one of the elites. Its heavy, relaxing effects result in the type of high you look forward to after the workday is complete—in other words, it’s not something you want to smoke during a busy day. While it originates from California, the parental lineage of Bubba Kush is uncertain. However, most theories point to OG Kush as playing a role in the strain’s ancestry, with claims of Northern Lights or Afghani Kush being part of the mix. Any nebulous family history aside, this is one particularly powerful indica that cannot be beat.
The look, smell, and feel of Bubba Kush
The physical characteristics of Bubba Kush are just as impressive as the strain itself—lush, forest green buds with hints of purple, along with a healthy sprinkling of frosty trichomes. As you gaze upon its beauty, you’ll be hit with a pungent yet delicious aromatic combination of earthy, fruity, and even chocolate-esque scents. This is a strain that will show absolutely no mercy on any of your senses. (In the best possible way, of course.)
The effects of Bubba Kush
Although it’s a potent indica, you most likely won’t have to worry about being a prisoner to the couch when enjoying some Bubba Kush. The body-melting effect it brings on still allows for functionality and (mild) socializing, thanks in part to the presence of the terpene pinene. However, to reiterate: it’s really not something you want to reach for during the daytime. Enjoy the strain when you’re at home or somewhere you can indulge in utmost relaxation. Bubba Kush can ease anxiety and help elevate your mood. If you need relief from aches and pains, or something to help you sleep, this is an optimal choice.
