Bubba Kush is an Indica dominant weed, the result of interbreeding Bubblegum and Kush. Bubblegum took three prizes in the 1995 High Times Cannabis Cup, second overall, third in the Bio section, and 2nd in the Hydro Cup. This weed includes many of the qualities that won awards for its parent.
Although it has a pungent, skunky smell, the flavor offers tones of pine and lemon, with a hint of Eastern spice. The hit is typically Indica. It comes on quick and will leave you lying on the couch – probably not to be recommended as a morning smoke. In medical use, it’s good for appetite stimulation and helping with insomnia.
The plants have a short bushy growing habit, as you’d expect from a Kush type. The leaves have broad fingers and are dark green, sometimes tending towards the purplish. The plant produces a profusion of heavy, dark green buds with orange and brown hairs. At up to 18 percent, this plant’s THC level is towards the higher end of the scale.
The Bubba Kush strain’s stocky growth tendency makes it a good choice for the SOG growing method indoors, either in soil or hydro. The plant offers average yields, and the flowering time is nine weeks.
Outdoor growing is possible provided you plant it in rich soil in a sunny spot with shelter. In the Northern hemisphere, harvest comes in early October.
To conclude this Bubba Kush review, you’ll choose it not for its high yields or ease of growth, but because it produces a quality crop with a consistently potent high. Bubba Kush one is best left to experienced horticulturists rather than absolute beginners.
