Bubba Kush entered the scene prior to 1998, and it's dominated the cannabis world since. This strain is a powerful indica that will ease your mind and body with a wave of euphoric bliss.

Bubba Kush is a very popular indica strain. The exact lineage of this strain is unknown, but it’s thought to include a little Afghani and OG Kush. As a near 100% indica, you can expect some strong, sleepy effects. After a puff or two, you’ll begin to feel muscle tension ease away and a pleasant, happy, and euphoric feeling will quickly replace any stress and worry.

Bubba’s aroma is a unique experience. At first, a hash taste hits the tongue. Yet, a warm, creamy, and acidic nuttiness lingers after the exhale. The buds on this strain look similar to those with Kush Mountain heritage. Overall, the plant is quite stocky with dense, quick-flowering buds. In cooler climates, you can expect to get some purple coloration from this strain. 

Strong indica effects make Bubba Kush a great choice for cancer and HIV/AIDS patients. High THC levels stimulate appetite and provide ample pain relief. Potent sedative effects also make Bubba the perfect cure for insomnia. You'll want to stick to nighttime use with this strain, however. Bubba Kush can leave you stuck on the couch and craving your favorite snacks.

Growing Tips

Bubba Kush is a great indoor strain for beginners and advanced growers alike. It does well in any medium but tends to get the highest yields from hydroponic methods. This strain is well-suited for sea of green (SOG) grow environments. Bubba is also naturally resistant to molds and pests. If you want to play up the purple, decrease nightly temperatures to 50°F (10°C). Though, make sure you don't stress your plant with high daytime temperatures and extremely low drops at night.
