This Bubba is lighter than most that we’re used to seeing — it had a light minty green color and the pistils were also a lighter golden orange rather than the normal Bubba brick red. This definitely seems to be a somewhat rare cut, as it just seemed quite different than the ones we’ve had locally in a variety of ways. The harvest timing was very good, with a collection of golden and amber-headed trichomes amongst clear and cloudy. Structure-wise, it’s exactly what we expect from the notoriously low-yielding plant, with dense oddly-shaped nuggets made up mostly of large calyxes. The only real flaw we found were a couple of tiny seeds, which were only noticed via the microscope.
Fresher and more frontal than most Bubbas, this one seemed to carry a piney flavor on the inhale, changing to a more spicy, floral, incense-like flavor on the exhale and aftertaste. Like most Bubbas, the taste hangs in your head for quite some time and leaves a pleasant spicy smell in the air. Though we really enjoyed the flavor, the final ash was a murky medium gray, indicating that the flush could’ve been quite a bit better.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Heavy muscle relaxation, pain relief, mood elevation, energy to start, and sleep aid to finish.
We were a bit confused by the aroma and taste, as they were different than the vast majority of Bubba Kush cuts we’ve tried — some reviewers liked it more than normal, others were less blow-away, but we all enjoyed it thoroughly. It’s rare that all reviewers report a nearly identical physical sensation, but the massaging upper back qualities this one displayed were probably the best part of the experience. For patients seeking a medicinal Indica that doesn’t go right for the tiredness from the start, this Bubba from Verde offers a unique experience that will impress even those who are nonplussed with the strain after years of similar cuts. A few minor flaws aside, this is a great Bubba — if those issues are corrected, we can easily see this one in the strong A range due to its lasting duration and high medicinal value.
Indica-dominant, this particular Bubba is a cut from 1996
