Not Your Typical Cup of Coffee
Proof that you can’t always judge a book by its cover, Bubba Kush Auto has a fragrance and flavor profile that completely contradict her effects. Famed for rich and enticing coffee-like aromas, you’d expect nothing more than a caffeine-like burst of energy. When in reality, all you get is the ultimate organic tranquilizer.
Famed in recreational and therapeutic cannabis circles alike for her near-narcotic effects, Bubba Kush is as good as it gets where guaranteed couch-lock is concerned.
Leaning strongly towards the Indica side of the scale - 70% Indica to 30% Sativa - you’d actually be forgiven for thinking this stuff was a pure Indica strain. Likewise, the moderate average THC content of 15% to 20% belies the power of this pot’s punch.
Bubba Kush has been around for quite some time, though the strain’s exact origins remain something of a mystery. Though it’s widely speculated that Bubba Kush has OG Kush in her direct ancestry - one of the most celebrated and important strains of all time.
Powerful, pungent and perfect for periods of pure indulgence, Bubba Kush Auto is a predominantly therapeutic strain with a potent effect. She’s also a gorgeously aromatic strain with a unique fragrance and flavor profile, which differentiates the herb from pretty much anything else out there.
Flavor and Fragrance of Bubba Kush Autoflower
Ask anyone who knows what Bubba Kush smells of and they’ll give you a single straight answer - coffee.
When these buds are grown and cured properly, they produce the most enticing and inviting coffee-like fragrance, often underpinned with notes of rich dark chocolate. There’s also a fair amount of exotic hashish and a hint of spice on the nose - all of which explodes in ferocity and complexity when the buds are broken.
The flavor profile brings its hash-like qualities to the forefront, with plenty of earthiness and peppery spice. The coffee and chocolate flavors linger beautifully on the palate, which some have said are complemented with a hint of hazelnut.
Sweet, decadent and supremely satisfying, Bubba Kush produces a dense yet manageable smoke that rarely induces coughing.
This hybrid doesn't have that quintessential ‘cannabis stink’ in its raw form, therefore isn’t quite as difficult to keep under wraps as some comparable strains. By contrast, set light to the nugs and everything in the vicinity ends up stinking to high heaven.
This is a strain that hits almost like a pure Indica, though isn’t to be misinterpreted as one-dimensional. Bubba Kush Auto is unique in that she pairs a completely incapacitating body stone with a sense of blissful contentment and clarity.
Rather than being melted into a puddle of pure pathetic mess for the duration, you’re lulled into a state of blissful enjoyment and satisfaction with the world around you.
Of course, the primary effect is one of fast-acting and overwhelming sedation. After just a few hits, you can expect to sink into and subsequently become glued to the nearest couch or armchair. This herb brings on a near-instant feeling of physical heaviness and numbness that makes it borderline impossible to remain mobile. If a prolonged bout of couchlock is what you’re after, this stuff tops the table.
Though again, Bubba Kush gets to work with near-narcotic effectiveness without any of the usual mind-fog.
You’ll remain clearheaded enough to maintain a coherent conversation, enjoying bursts of inspiration and creativity throughout the experience.
Rather than blasting your brain into oblivion, this cannabis can actually be quite thought provoking. Giggles aren’t out of the equation, either, though you’ll probably be too lazy to perform such an exertion.
Give it a while and the only thing you’ll be thinking about is how much food you can stuff down your throat in the fastest possible time. By a considerable margin, this strain is one of the most notorious on the market for bringing on insatiable cases of the munchies.
Medical Uses of Bubba Kush Autoflower
For the most part, the medical benefits of Bubba Kush lean towards the physical side of the equation.
This stuff has become a go-to strain for medical cannabis patients seeking relief from a wide variety of chronic pain conditions, along with muscle spasms, joint stiffness, arthritis and so on.
The way in which Bubba Kush Auto gets to work with a numbing effect on the body makes this one of the most effective strains on the market for pain relief.
Of course, the fact that this pot pretty much guarantees an excellent night’s sleep also makes it great for tackling the occasional bout of insomnia. All without the next-day drowsiness you’d associate with prescription meds and OTC sleeping pills.
The moderate Sativa makeup of Bubba Kush also has its therapeutic applications, replacing negative thoughts and bad moods with a feeling of confidence and contentment. These buds aren’t going to propel you into a state of pure euphoria, but can be just the thing for putting a lousy day at the office behind you.
When it comes to appetite restoration, this herb’s hard to beat, as prolonged cases of the munchies are inevitable with this stuff.
As Bubba Kush Autoflower is almost always incapacitating, she’s a strain that should be approached with caution by anyone with a low THC tolerance. Likewise, if you have a history of panic attacks or paranoia, this one could be a strain to avoid entirely.
Growing Bubba Kush Autoflower Seeds
This is the autoflowering version of Bubba Kush, so no need to worry about light/dark cycles. When the time is right, your plants will automatically switch to the flowering stage and begin producing bountiful buds.
From start to finish, this is an exceptionally easy strain to grow, with plants that rarely reach higher than around 1m or so. Warm Mediterranean-like conditions are needed to grow Bubba Kush Autoflower outdoors, so your plants are best kept indoors in cooler northern climates.
Flowering times average around eight weeks, after which you’ll be looking at an average of 17oz of quality weed for every square meter of grow space.
One of the benefits of growing Bubba Kush Auto is that the plants don’t have a particularly characteristic ‘skunky’ stink in their raw form, so aren’t quite as difficult as some of their counterparts to keep under wraps. Odor control will be necessary if discretion is a priority, but these beauties certainly don’t stink like some specimens.
With her naturally elevated resistance to pest infestation, mold, bud rot and common plant diseases, Bubba Kush Autoflower practically grows herself with just a little careful supervision.
Bubba Kush is a surprisingly versatile strain, which combines the raw power and punch of a pure Indica with the clear-headedness of a quality Sativa. Though not what you’d call a recreational cannabis strain in the traditional sense, this herb can nonetheless be perfect for afternoons and evenings of pure indulgence.
Well-cultivated Bubba Kush Auto plants produce relatively moderate yields, though it’s worth remembering that a little of this stuff goes a very long way. Particularly when consumed in the form of edibles, these buds deliver the kind of punch that can be inebriating in the extreme. Novice smokers are advised to approach Bubba Kush with extreme caution, though seasoned stoners will be in their element with this stuff.
When the mood takes you and the only thing you have on your mind is a bout of pure and unadulterated laziness, look no further than this herb.
