Black Bubba is a richly-flavoured indica dominant hybrid strain crossed from Canadian-born The Black and Bubba Kush. These flowers smell pungent like sweet berries. The smoke is smooth and earthy. This strain leaves users extremely relaxed and carefree with strong body tingling effects. This strain is also an impressive appetite stimulant.
Black Bubba’s flowers give off an earthy scent with some hints of roasted coffee. On closer inspection, there’s also a fresh, piney aroma. Meanwhile, grinding up these dense flowers yields the rich odor of sandalwood and hash, possibly inherited from the OG Kush in this strain’s background. When burnt, Black Bubba gives off a smoke that is surprisingly smooth, given its rich, heavy flavor profile. This smoke tastes earthy with some floral sweetness on the exhale.
Black Bubba’s high often takes several minutes to take effect. Up to 15 minutes after enjoying its luxurious smoke, consumers may begin to feel uch odd sensations as an increase in salivation and a slight pressure or a flushing in the face. Many may also experience trippy phenomena related to sensory perception, including visual distortions of depth and a feeling of time passing more slowly. In these early stages, Black Bubba’s psychedelic properties can be intensified by media like moody music. Once adjusted to the strain’s onset, smokers begin to notice the weight of its physical relaxation. Symptoms like weighty limbs and droopy eyelids may have some making a beeline for the closest comfortable surroundings. Indeed, Black Bubba is well-suited to such passive activities as binge-watching or solo reading. Any mental stimulation that the strain exerts is sure to be subtle, manifesting more as a kind of free association in the user’s stream-of-consciousness, rather than as an intense cerebral focus. It would be a mistake to toke on Black Bubba before taking on a heavy workload or tackling a lengthy to-do list. Instead, enjoy this strain as you kick back at the end of a long day or week of work and be prepared for the outside world to recede into the background. It may go without saying that, due to its sleepy vibes, Black Bubba is best enjoyed during the evening or nighttime.
Black Bubba’s sedation can also be useful for many medical cannabis patients. It may temporarily take the edge off of certain symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also soothe physical pain, whether that pain is temporary and injury-related, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or lupus. Black Bubba’s anticonvulsive properties may even counteract the symptoms of afflictions like restless leg syndrome. In the right conditions, this strain can work against insomnia, lulling smokers into a deep and satisfying sleep. Because it is not known to induce intense, recursive patterns of thinking, this strain may be a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
