Bubba Kush is a highly popular strain of indica, first grown in California, that produces almost immediate and intense tranquility. Praised by users who need help de-stressing after a having one of “those days”, the effects are also lauded by those who have trouble falling asleep at night. This strain may be useful for some who suffer from depression and anxiety as elevating mood and inducing relaxation are its main hallmarks. Bubba Kush has a sweet, mild taste, reminiscent of coffee or chocolate, and its buds are dense with varying colour from dark green to light purple.
Bubba’s stocky plant stature and bulky bud structure suggest Afghani descent, but its genetic origins aren’t certain. The breeder whom this strain was named after states that Bubba Kush emerged just after 1996, when an OG Kush hybrid pollinated an unknown indica strain obtained in New Orleans. The mother plant was supposedly Northern Lights, but the genetically ambiguous indica was simply called “Bubba.” Bubba Kush has flourished from its California roots ever since.
