Cannabis strains come in many shapes and sizes. Well, they really come in many effects and traits. The two main types of strains are indica and sativa. To keep it simple, one is known to leave its users feeling relaxed and tired, while the other is known to leave users feeling energized and uplifted. There are also hybrid strains, that tend to balance out the difference in effects. Which type is your favorite: Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid? What type do you think Bubba Kush is?
Speaking of strain types, let’s talk about Bubba Kush. This strain is an indica strain, and it proves that with its effects. In fact, Bubba Kush is a very popular strain due to the way it gives of very heavy indica effects. Even though it is popular, it’s origins are unknown. What is known is that one of Bubba Kush’s parents is OG Kush; however, the other parent strain(s) is unknown. We also know that this strain was created in California (where it is most popular) in 1996. The structure of the plant suggests that it is of Afghani descent, however, this is uncertain. One breeder claimed that one of the parents of Bubba Kush was Northern Lights, but this is also uncertain. Where did the “Bubba” come from when creating Bubba Kush? The question remains a mystery, but we do know that this strain is some good sh*t.
Since Bubba Kush is an indica strain, you can definitely expect to feel indica effects from it. These effects can include:
- heavy relaxation
- “couch-lock” feeling
Bubba Kush is known to leave its users feeling “stuck” on the couch. This means you will feel tired, possibly even wanting to go to sleep. Many strains that give off these effects are also known to give off brain fog. This isn’t the case with Bubba Kush, however. With this strain, you could get really high, feel relaxed and tired, and still have clear thoughts. This is very beneficial to someone who wants to get high from an indica strain but needs to think clearly or get some work done. Just don’t forget, it will leave you feeling tired, so it isn’t ideal if you are getting ready to do some physical work.
Not only is Bubba Kush good for getting a nice, relaxing recreational high, it also holds a number of benefits for medical marijuana patients (or anyone that uses marijuana medically). Take a look at some of the conditions that this strain can help treat:
- lack of appetite
- some mental disorders
As you can see, the list of conditions that Bubba Kush can help with is not short. Because of this, Bubba Kush is frequently used by medical marijuana patients in order to give them some sort of relief.
Bubba Kush can help with the conditions that most medical strains can help with (pain, stress, anxiety, depression, and nausea). It can also help with a lack of appetite, as it is known to increase one’s appetite (that means watch out for the munchies).
It can even help with some mental disorders. Now, when it comes to this, it is highly suggested that the user does not consume too much. When dealing with cannabis and mental disorders, it’s best to only consume however much is needed, and never overdo it. Overdoing it could reverse the effects and make the disorder seem even worse.
Bubba Kush may be able to help with certain mental disorders, but it cannot completely remove them. Same with cancer and HIV/AIDS. But even though this strain cannot completely heal a person from these conditions, it can give off massive amounts of relief to a patient that regularly uses it.
Flavors and Scents
Bubba Kush seems like a well-rounded strain, right? Well it is, which is why it’s so popular. It has great effects, great medical benefits, and even great flavors and scents. Most marijuana strains have a common flavor/scent that is recognizable throughout most strains. This strain, however, has some very unique tastes and aromas. For example, have you ever tasted chocolate when smoking some weed? What about coffee? If you smoke Bubba Kush then you have! That’s right, both of those flavors can be found in this strain.
As for the smell, it’s known to be very pungent. It is also known to smell earthy, with a hint of sweetness. Try Bubba Kush out for yourself and find out what flavors and scents you detect!
