The Epitome of Enjoyable Inebriation
What would you expect from a cannabis strain with the fragrance of a freshly brewed cup of coffee? You’d expect an energizing and motivating experience, with all the get-up-and-go associated with caffeine consumption… right?
Wrong - at least in the case of Bubba Kush Feminized. On the nose, this ganja gets to work with one of the most enchanting and enticing coffee-like fragrances of any strain out there. When consumed, she gets to work on the body like a freight train loaded with sledgehammers. If you’re out for an energizing daytime pick-up, this herb is pretty much the last strain you should be reaching for.
Engineered by combining the genetics of OG Kush and an unknown mother plant (maybe Northern Lights), Bubba Kush tips the scales at 70% Indica and 30% Sativa. Nevertheless, the way this stuff gets to work on the body would have you thinking you’re looking at a pure Indica.
Capable of knocking even the most seasoned stoners clean off their feet, this hybrid routinely tests for a THC content of up to 20%.
Being the feminized version of Bubba Kush, potentially problematic male plants are eliminated from the equation with these beans. All without taking anything away from the quality or potency of the final specimen.
Though predominantly famed for narcotic-like effects on the body, Bubba Kush Fem also brings just the right Sativa spike into the mix. A sense of clear-headedness coupled with an incapacitating body stone for hours on end - just the thing for evenings and weekends of pure self-indulgence.
She’s also one of the most popular and versatile therapeutic strains on the market, particularly for the alleviation of mild to moderate pain conditions.
Flavor and Fragrance of Bubba Kush Feminized
The most prominent terpenes in Bubba Kush are caryophyllene (peppery), limonene (citrus), and myrcene (herbal) - all of which come together to create a strain that’s far more than the sum of her component parts. After all, you wouldn’t expect this combination of terpenes to produce a strain with a coffee-chocolate fragrance that’s impossible to resist.
Coffee dominates on the nose, punctuated with rich dark chocolate and a hint of hashish. A burst of peppery spice is released when the buds are broken, further intensified when combusted with an even heavier hit of exotic hash.
The smoke produced by Bubba Kush Feminized is rich, dense and satisfying, though rarely cough-inducing. The hash-like qualities are brought to the forefront when the buds are combusted, while the aftertaste combines creamy coffee, a hint of hazelnut and a touch of black pepper.
Whether you prefer to smoke or vape your weed, you’re into pretty much the same all-round sensory experience.
Interestingly, this herb doesn't have the most powerful of fragrances in her raw form, making these buds comparatively easy to keep under wraps. Though the exact opposite is the case when the buds are burned - something to bear in mind if discretion is a priority.
Bubba Kush Feminized comprises 70% Indica and 30% Sativa genetics, painting a pretty clear picture of what to expect from the high. This strain’s predominantly Indica lineage makes for a potent and powerful body stone, which comes on in minutes and lasts for hours.
Before you know it, you’re glued to the nearest piece of furniture in the vicinity, with no intention of moving for the duration. But what makes Bubba Kush Fem unique is the way in which she doesn't decimate the mind in the same way she hits the body.
Couchlock is more or less inevitable, but you can expect to remain perfectly clear-headed and coherent throughout the entire experience.
This stuff’s not necessarily got the makings of a particularly social strain, but won’t leave you incapable of conversation if you’re in company at the time. These buds are also known for bringing on wave after wave of inspired thinking and creativity - a firm favorite among artists, musicians and creative types in general.
Sooner or later, the munchies creep into the equation and there’s nothing you can do to satisfy them. After which, you’ll be gradually lulled into a state of dreamy drowsiness, paving the way for a fantastic night’s sleep. Hence, timing is everything with a good batch of Bubba Kush Feminized, as it’s only a matter of time until you’re offline for a good while.
Medical Uses of Bubba Kush Feminized

Therapeutic tokers worldwide recommend controlled intake of this cannabis for relief from arthritis, joint pains, muscle stiffness, muscle spasms and more. She’s also a fantastic strain to turn to after a heavy workout, assisting with muscle repair and relaxation.
Anyone struggling with occasional bouts of insomnia could find Bubba Kush Feminized just the ticket, which after a while guarantees a restful night’s sleep - all without the risk of fatigue and drowsiness the next day, which would be the norm with most conventional meds.
Though predominantly physical in the effects department, this herb can also bring welcome relief from a wide variety of mood disorders and psychological malaise.
Everyday stress, anxiety and general bad moods are quickly replaced with a sense of blissful contentment, which lingers throughout the experience. Patients with poor appetite could also find Bubba Kush Fem ideal, due to her connotations with relentless bouts of the munchies.
