Strain Spotlight – Bubba Kush

Strain Spotlight – Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is an indica-dominant strain with a heavy, tranquilizing high that leaves users feeling relaxed but still functional.  It has a high THC content ranging from 14 percent to 22 percent. Bubba Kush’s lineage isn’t entirely known, but it’s believed to be the result of breeding OG Kush with an unknown indica plant (likely Northern Lights). When it hit the market back in 1996, nobody was concerned with its parentage, as users fell in love with Bubba Kush’s effects and pungent flavor.

The leaves are dark green and sometimes contain shades of purple. Dense trichromes cover the flowers and are even visible when the nuggets are broken open.

Aroma and Flavor

Fresh Bubba Kush weed has a mild aroma of coffee or cocoa with some slight fruitiness. When burned, the smoke can be extremely pungent with what some users who’ve written Bubba Kush strain reviews have reported to be an acrid ammonia scent. Most detect chocolate notes and a very “hashy” and spicy scent.

The flavor of Bubba Kush is unique in the cannabis world. The smoke can be very thick and harsh, and will likely induce coughing in even the most experienced smokers. The flavor has been described as dank and earthy with a sweet, peppery kick on exhaling.

No matter what notes an individual smells in Bubba Kush smoke, they all agree that the smoke is extremely thick and pungent. Those users who are concerned about discretion should plan accordingly.


Despite its harsh smoke, the effects of smoking  Bubba Kush weed are surprisingly relaxing. The onset tends to bring some slight disorientation for a few moments. Once this feeling passes, users experience a strongly sedative “body melt” that intensifies as time goes on. This muscle relaxation is usually accompanied by a dreamy euphoria, though mental acuity is still somewhat sharp. Users are functional and alert, and “couch lock” is a rarity.

Bubba Kush is a fantastic sedative for those experiencing physical cramping or pain as well as mental stresses. Anxiety tends to melt away, while leaving users alert enough to have a conversation or get work done around the house. Its narcotic effects make this a strain that’s best suited for nighttime use. Used in higher doses, Bubba Kush effects make it a perfect aid for those suffering from insomnia.

Bubba Kush may be ideal for treating:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Pain
  • Depression
  • Loss of appetite
  • Daily stresses

Strain Spotlight: Green Crack

Don’t let Green Crack’s name fool you – this is 100 percent pure cannabis. Originally called “Green Cush”, the strain was dubbed Green Crack by Snoop Dogg when he experienced its powerful sativa effects. The name has since stuck, but some users still prefer to refer to its original name to avoid any association to street drugs.

A sativa-dominant hybrid, this strain has become a staple in the medical marijuana community.  Green Crack strain reviews rave about its uplifting, trippy, and energetic effects as well as its unique flavor and powerful potency. Users enjoy Green Crack’s price, especially as it’s a daytime smoke and a little bit is all you need to get your day moving.

Aroma and Flavor

Our Green Crack is cultivated at its peak of potency and flavor. Most users find its tangy, fruity flavor to be smooth with notes of pine and citrus. The aroma can be best described as a balance of earth and sweetness with citrus notes and the faintest hint of mango. Flowers burn smoothly to create an all-around pleasant smoke.


As its playful name implies, Green Crack is an extremely energetic strain with one of the strongest “head highs” around. Sharp energy and focus are commonly associated with the Green Crack marijuana strain, along with confidence, overall happiness, and motivation. These attributes make it the go-to strain for medicating in the daytime or before a social event.

Many users have reported that the high manifests itself with strong creative focus and slightly psychedelic effects inspiring creativity in normally mundane projects. Beginners and more experienced cannabis users alike may find that a little Green Crack wax or concentrate can go a long way, as too much may lead to recursive cerebral thinking leading, paranoia or panic. Be sure to stay hydrated, as this strain is known for causing dry mouth and dry eyes.

Green Crack may be ideal for treating:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • PTSD
  • Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
