Bubba Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From:  Stone Mountain Wellness

Grade:  A

Type:  Indica-dominant, This is the original cut that came out of California about 1998.  Mel Frank’s MJ Botany describes the landrace Hindu Kush as a dead on match to the growth and flower structure to Bubba Kush.  The story told years ago was Bubba came from original Afghani Kush seeds collected shortly after the Russians withdrew from Afghanistan in ’89 by some West Coast travelers.  There are also: The Purple Bubba, The Green Bubba,  Mint Bubba, Coffee Bubba, and about 5 so called Pre 98 Bubba’s.)

Price:  Call to ask

Appearance:  (8/10)  Darker green with beautiful magenta/purple on the stems and on many calyxes. Extremely frosty, with mostly clear/cloudy trich heads (ambers mostly on inner calyxes).  The sample had a lot of long and very thin calyxes towards the bottom of the flower cluster; perhaps the most slender and longest calyxes I’ve ever seen, very interesting.

Aroma:  (9/10) Very strong chemical fuel smell base – light levels of skunk and spice when crumbled.

Taste:  (9/10) Wonderful, very soily Kush taste with a hint of fruity/sweetness on the exhale and when it’s sitting in my mouth.  A little of the crazy perfume-like taste that the Ghost OG had on the exhale as well.  The flavor screams top notch medicine and provides big expansion.  Burned to a light gray ash, very close to total whiteness.

Effects:  Quickly feels like getting a scalp massage, a soft vibrating and swirling head high around the top of my skull and into my face. Warm body and hands are noticeable within a couple minutes, and hariline perspiration was common.  It gets heavy in the eyes about a half-hour after ingestion with the head focus getting heavier as time moves by.  This phase will provide a pressure sensation to your face and even your chest.  It is almost an overwhelming high, a bit head-spinny but still relaxing.  The body high is roaring along for the duration and you will feel pulsing in your shoulders, arms, and chest.  Mentally this is an uplifting medication that plays itself out in 3 acts whereby the sativa attributes fade away as you progress through the experience.

Duration:  Long. 2.5 – 3 hours

Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  This strain is great for pain, motivational and anxiety needs.  Appetite stimulant and insomnia upon come down.

Overall:  One of the better samples we’ve had so far, just extremely tasty, smelly, and effective.  Amazing to look at with its bevy of colors and its unusual calyx structure, the trichomes are numerous though small and cloudy/clear.  If it had a better manicure and/or was slightly tighter, it would be nearly perfect.  Nice and strong with a long duration.  This one will get on top of most people and we recommend 0.1g for most patients at first, because it’s headstrong.

    Please notice that the trichs weren’t let to go to 50/50 amber which is what you WANT with bubba kush, this will produce a bit of paranoia (headline sweat) and more sativa influences. It looks lovely but it’s intended to have more amber trichs… thanks for listening.
