Bubba Kush is a cannabis hybrid that was created when a phenotype of the Afghan Kush merged with the Northern Light cannabis strain. This strain of marijuana was first discovered in the aforementioned accidental circumstances somewhere in the 1990s.
Bubba Kush soon became hugely successful in the commercial market, with celebrity patrons like Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill and Dr. Dre championing the brilliance of this strain. Since Bubba Kush gained immense popularity, many dispensaries started creating copycat marijuana strains. This led Matt Berger to rename his variety of Bubba Kush as the hugely popular OG Kush, thereby differentiating his brand from the others in the market.
Bubba Kush has distinctive broad and well-spread fan leaves, squat stature, short internodes and a potent presence of Indica in its strain composition. This huge dominance of Indica can be traced to the Afghan Kush lineage that resulted in the conception of this hugely popular marijuana strain.
You can expect to harvest this marijuana strain within 8-9 weeks, or during the early weeks of October. Bubba Kush is known to produce dense nugs that have a generous layer of resin on them. You might experience feelings of happiness, relaxation, and sleepiness after consuming this variant of marijuana.
