Black Bubba is an indica-leaning cannabis strain best known for its uniquely beautiful pungent earthy smell as well as the intense wave of creative euphoria it creates.
The 70% indica and 30% sativa is a very potent hybrid that will give you an insanely calming body buzz without sedating you.
Also, with a THC content of between 17%-24%, Black Bubba guarantees a completely relaxed and blissful high to get you through activity-packed days.
The indica-dominant herb is an offspring of two popular and extremely potent parents, namely Bubba Kush and Black Russian. You may know Bubba Kush from its popular psychedelic euphoric high that makes you feel like your entire body has been soothed using a tranquilizer.
Its other parent, Black Russian, is recognized for its unique aromas and flavors, not forgetting the deep sense of artistic stimulation it creates.
While many people ingest Black Bubba for recreational purposes, the strain also comes with a host of medical benefits that range from curing asthma and epilepsy to easing chronic pain, inflammation, headaches, and many other medical conditions.
Appearance, Flavors, and Aromas
You can easily tell Black Bubba from other hybrid cannabis strains. The buds of Black Bubba have a harsh and moderately pungent smell of blue cheese that will startle your taste buds.
When smoked, the buds emit a bizarrely satisfying earthy coffee-like aroma that will keep you looking forward to the next puff.
The strain also produces strong notes of floral and pine that will leave you with a pleasant aftertaste on the exhale.
Black Bubba has to be one of the shortest cannabis plants we have today. The plant is about 3feet tall, making it perfect for indoor cultivation.
It is also very sturdy and capable of resisting molds and diseases. If grown under the right climatic conditions and proper ventilation and lighting, Black Bubba plants can produce an impressive amount of consumable herb.
The Black Bubba plant is also very good at saving space, making it an ideal choice for home and garden cultivation.
However, although the hybrid does a tremendous job at saving space, its branches tend to grow a little too wide and bushy. You may, therefore, want to regularly prune and trim your plants to help save more space and encourage proper distribution of nutrients to the leaves and budding sites.
Black Bubba plants have green buds, which can change into various other colors when exposed to colder temperatures.
With adequate ventilation and lighting, flowering takes approximately 7 to 9 weeks. Growers can expect yields of between 8 to 12 ounces per meter square both outdoors and indoors.
Black Bubba is a true indica. Its high starts slowly with a uniquely calming and mood uplifting head buzz that will leave you feeling happy and contented.
Most of the time, Black Bubba’s indica-leaning high will only kick in after your body is deeply relaxed.
You may want to prepare your snacks in advance because just a few minutes after you’ve ingested Black Bubba, you’ll begin to feel very hungry.
The strain causes a very strong desire for food, popularly known as the ‘munchies’, that will have you gobbling a whole pizza or ripping open boxes of peameal bacon while ordering Montreal-style smoked meat and bagel.
If you’re ingesting Black Bubba for the first time, you are highly encouraged to have your snacks ready ahead of time to avoid dizzying yourself when the strain’s tingling buzz creeps in.
As earlier mentioned, Black Bubba’s high starts slow and gradually develops into a deep body crushing high that will leave you glued on the couch ‘couch-locked’ despite not exceeding your limit.
Because of its deep body relaxing high, Black Bubba makes a perfect strain for people who struggle with insomnia. As such, this cannabis hybrid is ideal for evening or night use.
Since Black Bubba is an indica-dominant strain, its medical application revolves around the body. Its cannabinoid composition is said to soothe a whole range of bodily conditions.
For instance, Black Bubba is a highly effective painkiller. Thanks to its potent chemical components, the strain can relieve various body aches that arise from muscle contractions. It also has anti-psychotic properties that make it a great remedy for seizures.
We should mention that before using marijuana to treat or manage your medical condition, make sure to seek approval from an experienced health provider first. Otherwise, you may end up exacerbating the problem.
Possible Side Effects
Like it’s the case with nearly all marijuana strains, you can expect dehydration when you ingest Black Bubba. The strain is said to contain very strong active compounds that strip off moisture from the eyes and mouth, leaving you with a cottonmouth and red eyes.
While it’s virtually impossible to avoid these side effects, you can easily treat them by drinking plenty of water.
You may also feel a little dizzy after ingesting Black Bubba. Some users may also experience slight paranoia. Although dizziness and paranoia are rare occurrences, exceeding your limits can increase the chances of them happening.
As such, it’s recommended to exercise moderation when smoking Black Bubba or any other cannabis strain for that matter.
